Villa in Figueira, Nr. Salema - Peaceful Location, Close To Many Beaches, amazing private pool
About Phil Bligh
We are a family of 5 living & working in the North West of England. Like many have always dreamed of owning a property abroad, part investment, part retirement plan but mainly because we love it here.
Phil Bligh purchased this Villa in 2013
Why Phil Bligh chose Figueira
As other owner's you may see, we too fell under the spell of this area and its authentic charm. We were looking to buy a property where we can eventually spend more and more time and for us this area and the Yellow Villa in particular has it all. Close enough to the village to easily enjoy it's amenities yet far enough to be quiet and private. Salema, with its lovely restaurants and beach is gorgeous without being over developed and is minutes away plus with all the other different beaches close by there is something for everyone here.
Cancelled bookings will not receive a refund.
The Villa is in a lovely part of the Algarve - really quiet and laid back. Beaches are beautiful and plentiful - from surfing beaches to quiet calm sea. (Salema beach being my favourite) We really enjoyed the peace and quiet at the Villa and the pool was great - a nice size and we spend a lot of time hanging out by the pool. It's a nice stroll into the nearest village where there are three restaurants - lovely new pizza place as well as traditional restaurants and very reasonable prices. Phil was really helpful and the Villa had everything we needed. Lovely spot, would love to return. Thank you Phil.
amazing villa, amazing views, amazing pool!
The villa is peaceful and has a lovely view of the village of Figueira and the sea. Its spacious and the pool area is fabulous. The villa was clean and communication with the owner and agent was excellent. We had an amazing holiday and would love to return.
Lovely villa, with great facilities, including the large swimming pool and sun terrace with bbq.
The owner, Phil, was very helpful and provided excellent information prior to our trip.
Good location,very quiet, perfect for visiting several beaches. Pool a good size. Really enjoyed our stay. Would definitely recommend.
Great location for a quiet holiday
We had a really good family holiday at this villa. As we stayed there at the end of March the pool was a bit chilly, but the great location helped make up for it. There are several good beaches within easy driving distance. We enjoyed visiting the the surfing beaches on the west coast as well as the local sheltered coves and coastal paths near Salema. We shopped mainly at Lidl in Vila do Bispo, but also got some groceries from Intermarche in Budens and Sagres. We enjoyed eating out at Atlantico in Salema (great view of the sea and a good selection of fresh fish dishes, but no children's menu). The villa was so comfortable we didn't mind staying in most evenings. The kitchen is fairly well equipped and the living area felt spacious. Phil and the local manager (Ramona) provided good customer service. On the whole we really enjoyed our stay and would love to return when the weather is a bit warmer (if we can afford it)!
What a villa!!!!! Amazing!
We've just returned from a 2 week stay this morning. This villa is absolutely beautiful. Very spacious inside. When we arrived in the middle of the night we were all very 'wow' this villa is amazing. The pool is awesome and was a hit with us all. My boys were in the pool everyday! The location of the villa is fantastic. Salema is just down the road. We had a hire car and visited lots of places that were recommended in the arrival book. Burgau is beautiful and definitely worth a visit. (has a steep hill down to the beach!)
It was so easy to book this villa. We contacted Phil (the owner) who made the whole process so easy. We will definitely be back in the future.
