Guestbook comments from the owner

Thank you for the use of your fantastic Villa. Spent 2 weeks in glorious sunshine in The View. It lives up to it’s spectacular location with magnificent views over the Salema bay. A wonderful size outdoor pool and jacuzzi which was safe a secure for our 2 small children.

The villa is brand new and so beautifully decorated I have taken some design ideas to renovate our home in England. Although the beach is close it is a steep walk back up to the resort so we ended up taking our car back and forth.

Thanks again for all you arranged

The owners accepted a double-booking for the week we booked and then offered us poor alternatives and limited compensation.

Owner's Response: This is a shame as simple human error does occasionally happen. We have since made improvements to ensure double booking could not happen again. Every reasonable endeavour was made to find a solution however sadly; this did not resolve the issue.

Perfect for a quiet hols

  • 4 of 5

A perfect, attractive, easy house on the end of a terrace in The View resort, this place is seconds from a large shared pool (never too busy) and a 10 mins walk down a steep hill to the beach & village. Only issues were the internet - poor & virtually impossible to check emails or watch telly, but we were there for the heat, shade, swimming & outdoors. There is no longer a bar by the pool & the resort seems a little under populated and under new management, but this made for a quiet holiday which is just what we were after. Very pleasant owners and manager.

Lovely Family Villa!

  • 4 of 5

From the moment we arrived til we left we had a wonderful holiday. The villa is beautiful and in a nice quiet place . It is nicely decorated, very clean and spacious with comfy beds!

The View is a small resort with lovely pools which we enjoyed in the afternoons. The villa is situated up a fairly steep hill from the beach but is only a 5-10 minute walk to the centre of town which is manageable. This villa has got its own secluded garden and parking. It is managed by Jenny who was wonderful.

The air conditioning was a blessing as we had lovely hot weather!

Lots to see nearby , the West Coast surfing beaches have some fabulous restaurants.

The only negatives we had were there were no beach towels and the wifi was a bit patchy.

We will definitely come back again and would recommend this lovely villa to anyone looking to have a lovely stay in Salema.

Sehr schöne und gepflegte Unterkunft in Salema

  • 4 of 5

Sehr schöne Unterkunft mit wunderbarem Blick auf die Bucht von Salema. Leider waren wir bei unserer Ankunft auf einer falschen Liste gelandet und so war der Schlüssel nicht da, wo er sein sollte. Das ist ein bisschen ärgerlich, wenn man abends um 23:00 ankommt und erst mal nicht direkt ins Appartement kann.

Das Appartement selbst und die Anlage waren aber sehr gepflegt und sauber.

Exklusives Ferienhaus mit atemberaubendem Blick auf Salema und die Küste

  • 5 of 5

Dieses exklusive Ferienhaus überstieg unsere Erwartungen: es hat allen drei Terrassen, von den drei Schlafzimmern und vom hübschen Garten aus wohl einen der besten Ausblicke in Salema. Das gesamte Haus ist geschmackvoll eingerichtet, die drei Schlafzimmer sind sehr großzügig mit großen Schränken, die zwei angrenzenden Bäder sehr stilvoll gestaltet. Im oberen Bereich gibt es noch eine Gästetoilette. Die in jedem Zimmer befindliche Heizung (im Sommer Klimaanlage) war sehr hilfreich, da wir Ende März/Anfang April (Ostern) zum Wandern kamen. Auch die Küche ist mit Spül- und Waschmaschine, Backofen und Mikrowelle gut ausgerüstet. Eine Zusammenstellung von Anleitungen zu den Geräten (wie auch Fernsehen/Internet) wäre hilfreich. Doch die Vorbereitung durch die Vermieter und die Betreuung durch die reizende Verwalterin Jenny waren perfekt. Bei 8 Tagen Aufenthalt gab es einen Bettwäschen- und Handtuchwechsel Mitte der Woche.

Die gesamte Anlage ist sehr gepflegt und sehr schön bepflanzt. Die Swimmingpools und Liegen sind ganz in der Nähe des Hauses, waren natürlich bei unserem Aufenthalt noch nicht nutzbar, weil zu kalt.Der alte Ortskern ist sehr hübsch, oberhalb befinden sich hunderte Ferienhäuser, die aber architektonisch gut zum Gesamtbild passen. Dort sind kleinere Einkäufe möglich, ansonsten gibt es in der Nähe mehrere große Supermärkte (Budens und Zagres). Während unseres Aufenthaltes gab es nur wenig Touristen und genügend Platz in den Restaurants und auf den Parkplätzen. Im Sommer dürfte der Ort allerdings völlig überlaufen sein.

Die Umgebung ist traumhaft schön; wir konnten direkt vom Haus aus in beide Richtungen in die Küstenwanderwege einsteigen. Die Wanderwege sind spektakulär und mit der Blütenpracht war es ein zusätzlicher Genuss. Wir werden auf jeden Fall wiederkommen!

Zwei kleine Kritikpunkte: eine Garderobe wäre hilfreich und in der Küche könnte es bei 6 Personen etwas mehr Geschirr (vor allem Gläser) geben.

Owner's Response: Thank you Maria for your kind comments. We are pleased you enjoyed your stay and we will put more glasses and tableware in the villa as well as clearer instructions on how to work the the internet & TV. Thank you once again. English TranslationThis exclusive holiday home exceeded our expectations: it has all three terraces of the three bedrooms and from the pretty garden probably one of the best views in Salema. The entire house is tastefully decorated, the three bedrooms are very spacious with large closets, the two adjacent bathrooms very stylish. In the upper area there is a guest toilet. The heater located in every room (in summer air conditioning) was very helpful since we came in late March / early April (Easter) for walking. The kitchen is well equipped with dishwasher and washing machine, oven and microwave. A compilation of manuals for the devices (as well as TV / Internet) would be helpful. However, the preparation made by the host and the service by the lovely manager Jenny were perfect. In 8 days stay there was a Change of linen and towel change mid-week. The entire facility is well maintained and beautifully landscaped. The swimming pools and beach chairs are very close to the house, of course, were during our stay not available because too kalt.Der old center is very pretty, above there are hundreds of cottages, but architecturally well with the overall picture. There smaller purchases are possible, otherwise there is near several large supermarkets (Budens and Zagres). During our stay there were only a few tourists and plenty of room in the restaurants and in the parking lots. In summer, however, the site is likely to be completely overrun. The environment is beautiful; we could directly go into the coastal walks from the house in both directions. The trails are spectacular and with the bloom it was an added pleasure. We will come back in any case! Two small criticisms: cloakroom would be helpful and in the kitchen it could at 6 persons a little more dishes give (especially glasses)

The View, Salema Beach, Algarve, Vila do Bispo.

Located in one of the Western Algarve Regions’ most unique locations, The View Is set on a high cliff-top that overlooks the tranquil fishing village of Salema.

Set along the coast of the Algarve you will surely be impressed by the untouched beauty this village still holds today. One of Salema’s most appreciated features is its large and spacious beach - great news for travellers who praise privacy and are not fond of crowded beaches.

Close by you could visit towns such as Sagres, a town known for its 15th century historical background and St. Vincent Cape. Also, Lagos and Burgau are not far from the resort and have numerous tourist attractions, restaurants and bars. A walk through Salema is a great idea for those who want to savour local cuisine and exquisite seafood. Various restaurants may be found right near the beach, being an excellent choice for lunch or dinner.

The closest airport from The View is in Faro, being approximately a 1-hour drive away.
