Photos and Description of this 5 bedroom holiday villa in Vila Do Bispo region - Villa dos Duquinhos

5 bedrooms, 5 bathrooms, sleeps 10

Villa dos Duquinhos is an exceptional villa overlooking the ocean and picturesque village of Salema. It boosts some of the most panoramic ocean and coastal views in the Algarve.

The villa has recently been completely renovated and refurbished. In the main villa there are 3 bedrooms, each with an en-suite bathroom. There is a very large living room, containing a spacious living and dining area and including a fully fitted kitchen.

There are 2 separate apartments. The first apartment (on the pool level) contains a living/bedroom area and en-suite bathroom.

Down the steps from the pool level there is a second apartment. It contains a living/bedroom, kitchen and en-suite bathroom.

From the adjacent spacious terraces you are overlooking the ocean and Salema. Truly relax and enjoy incredible ocean views from the terraces and lounge area. Cool down in the private swimming pool with salt water (skin friendly). And prepare your favourite dinner with the built in BBQ.

The property is situated in a peaceful residential area. Salema's sandy beach and picturesque village center only a short walk away.

This is a perfect retreat for guests who are looking for something truly exceptional.

Salema Beach - a picturesque hideaway: Salema is a picturesque and traditional fishing village in the unspoilt Western Algarve region of Portugal. Nestled between the rugged cliffs right at the beach sits this village on the edge of the Ocean. Small fishing boats are still launched directly from the beach to the sea to bring in fish for local consumption and sold in one of the local restaurants. The long sandy beach beneath the rocks is beautifully carved along the cliffs. Ah the far Western end of it there are flat rocks, which are famous for their dinosaurs footprints.

Salema is situated within the Costa Vincentina Natural Park, a protected area of outstanding natural beauty.

At whatever time of the year you visit, the unique atmosphere, stunning surroundings and exceptional array of activities for all ages and interests make Salema the perfect holiday destination for families or groups of friends

Enjoy the wide variety of restaurants: Salema has a selection of restaurants and some bars. There are two small supermarkets for daily needs. A big Intermarche supermarket is to be found in Budens about 4 km drive with a larger selection of goods.

At some greater distance there are more fantastic restaurants you can enjoy. In the villa we will supply you with the tips of our favourite restaurants.

A stay in Paradise

  • 5 of 5

This villa is exceptional and likely to be the most beautiful in Salema. We have stayed here three times for a period varying from one to two weeks, in May 2009, November 2009 and April 2011. I know the owners and therefore I can tell you that they have put in every effort to turn this property into a paradise for their holidays. They succeeded. From the living room, the kitchen arena, the master bed room as well as from the terrasses, you have an astonisihing view on the little old and cosy centre of Salema, the beach, waves rolling over to the coast and the Mediterrean Sea. They not only have upgraded this object into a modern design villa, they also renewed the swimming pool, which now contains a healthy salt water installation in stead of chlorized water. Finally, they have created a beautiful garden at this huge plot.

Downhill, it is a five to ten minute walk to the beach and a ten to fifteen minute walk back up. If you are not willing to prepare your own food in the spacious kitchen, you can get your breakfast or dinner downhill. There are at least two really good restaurants in the centre, and even more in the close surroundings of Salema. My personal favorite is the sea brass fresh from the sea at Bistro Central for just EUR 12,50. This villa is at a one hour drive from Faro airport. If you are looking for a great stay in the Algarve which make you believe paradise exists, you just found your destination.

One word describes our stay in June 2011 - Bliss

The most delightful villa in a wonderful position and with

views to die for. Salema is a lovely village and perfect for young

children as there is virtually no traffic. I would happily recommend

this property and we have already booked again for June 2012 and can't wait!

Best holiday (home) ever!

  • 5 of 5

This house is absolutely stunning and the view of the Ocean is amazing. It's well maintained, clean, and has a great outdoor terrace with a beautiful pool. Both the house and the terrace are very spacious, and equiped with everything you need.

The tips we got from the owners made the stay even better- they sent us to all the great places in this area.

Salema is a lovely, laid back village with fantastic Seafood straight from the beach. We absolutely fell in love with this area of Portugal and with the house. I even doubted writing a review because don't really want everyone to find out how great this is- as we definitely want to come back again and are now risking to find it fully booked!

But hey, such a gorgeous house and welcoming owners deserve a great review.

really fantastic views

  • 5 of 5

My opinion may be affected by a glass of wine verde we brought from Portugal, but our stay at the end of June was just great. This house is exceptionally situated, with a view of the sea and Salema, has a spacious terrace safely separated from the pool part. With the pool, jacuzzi and a grill, 4 rooms with doublebeds, we (4 families with 4 kids) enjoyed our stay very much. Salema is quiet place - exactly what we wanted and needed. Highly recommended.
