perfect family villa - delightful Algarve village

  • 5 of 5

We spent 5 days at Casa de Lana in late May. The villa was very nicely appointed and well laid out with 3 bedrooms on level 1 including ensuite and main bathrooms, a beautiful living, dining, kitchen and balcony on level 2 with infinity pool and beautiful views to the ocean. The upper deck on the roof and the rear deck and BBQ were also great entertaining areas and very private. The villa was an easy downhill walk to the beach and centre of town and there were some wonderful trail walks along the coast close by. Highly recommend to families or small groups looking for the complete villa package in a most charming village on the Algarve.

We have stayed in some wonderful villas over the years but Casa da Lane simply outdid them all! The Villa wanted for nothing, the views were spectacular, Paulo and the maids just charming and the local area stunning. Isabel and her family provided a perfect taxi service, as we didn't hire a car to give my husband a break from driving. This included a morning when my daughter fell ill and we needed to get her to a doctor, Isabel was there in 15 minutes. It was a perfect holiday and we will be back! The welcome pack was the best we have ever had and the presentation of the villa, internally and externally, second to none. Thank you Ben and all your team for your help. Salema is "simply perfect"!

Fantastic villa with an ocean view

  • 5 of 5

What a fantastic 2 week stay! the villa was clean, well equipped and perfect for a family. The views of the ocean were spectacular. We were a short walk from the beach and the bars/restaurants were readily accessible. Will definitely return.

Casa Helena

  • 4 of 5

We stayed as a family at Casa Helena at the end of April this year. Salema is a pretty town in the western Algarve with a nice beach and a good selection of restaurants. Casa Helena was beautifully furnished and I suspect better equipped than my own home with nice views down onto the town itself. There was an infinity pool which was a little cold in April but I'm sure would be much appreciated later in the year. I would happily recommend Casa Helena to friends and family.

Family heaven at Simply Salema's Casa Helena

  • 5 of 5

Our young family and grandparents (6 people) enjoyed a wonderful holiday at Casa Helena with Simply Salema in May 2012.

Where to start? The location is just stunning, thoses sea views are to die for - the website photos really are true!! With 2 young children we appreciated the short 5-minute walk into the centre of Salema and main beach. Holidays traipsing miles to get to any local ammenities are definitely now a thing of the past!

Salema itself is a hidden gem, a pretty old fishing village with a few shops and bars and a surprising amount of cafés and restaurants for all budgets. The fresh fish and tasty chicken piri-piri were our children's favourites!

Back to the villa.... We found Casa Helana to be spacious and well equipped for the 6 of us, with everything thought of and nothing left wanting. The UK TV and free WiFi were welcome additions. The house was immaculate on arrival and as a family we appreciated the midweek clean and towel-change. We thought the balconies/terraces were cleverly designed as there was always sun and shaded areas through the day.

Paulo the local manager was lovely and showed us around the villa so we knew where everything was and how it all worked. He also advised us on places to visit, activities and restaurants etc. We felt like VIPs and genuinely that nothing was too much trouble for him.

We stayed out of the school holidays when it was much cheaper and quieter. Everything was open, there was a nice atmosphere everywhere we went but never busy.

Whilst you don't need to leave Salema if all you're look for is the beach, we ventured out into the Western Algarve and were pleasantly surprised with what we found. We can recommend the Marina and fish market in Lagos, Cape St Vincent, Zoomarine (the kids loved this place) and Carrapateira on the West coast where we found an an amazing beach and a warm sheltered inlet perfect for the children to swim, splash and fish.

We will certainly be back as Simply Salema seem to have found that magic holiday combination of great accommodation and location with good service and at the right price. We are thinking of bringing a larger group to stay at their 5-bedroom Casa das Estevas next time.

This is just how all family holidays should be!

Incredible Holiday. Cant wait to return!!

  • 5 of 5

We had a fantastic holiday in Casa Helena in Salema in May and I cannot wait to return. I booked this holiday for my wife’s 30th and in honesty, had no idea how nice it was going to be when we arrived. The villa with its incredible infinity pool, big spacious & well designed rooms is fantastic but what really makes this villa special is the views that can only be described as breath taking. Ben had kindly prepared us for what to expect but nothing can quite prepare you for a holiday at Casa Helena. Though the kitchen facilities are great, we preferred to BBQ every night and were able to find all the ingredients from the local shops together with my now favourite beer, Super Bock! The i-pod station is also a great touch as we forgot ours and were able to enjoy listening to music whilst sitting outside taking in the views and planning when to return. All in all, the great location, infinity pool, gorgeous villa, unbeatable views and great customer service all allowed us to have the best birthday celebration ever. Thanks again for helping me organise this special holiday. See you next year!!

Welcome to Simply Salema

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

Salema’s pretty village centre has retained its traditional Portuguese charm, still having its own fleet of brightly coloured fishing boats catching sea bass, bream, octopus, sardines and mackerel. The village boasts shops, cafés, bars and a weekly market. Not surprisingly, there are several fabulous seafood restaurants huddled amongst white washed fishermen’s cottages. The small village is a delight to gently stroll around at any time of the day or evening.

Please visit or contact us now for all information. We also have a selection of other villas in the Salema area and a sister ski company in Morzine, French Alps. Please see
