We came here as a family mid May 2014 and were stunned at how fabulous this accommodation is. Each bedroom has an en-suite bathroom, with another toilet on the first floor. There is a balcony off the bedrooms on the ground floor, another furnished balcony off the living room on the first floor, and a secret top balcony up a spiral staircase from the middle balcony with 2 sunbeds and beautiful sea views. It has a fully fitted kitchen, not that we used it with so many lovely restaurants in the village, and it is 2 minutes away from the communal swimming pool, which at this time of year, was largely empty. The View is only 5 minutes walk to the village of Salema where there are a number of excellent restaurants and a couple of nice bars. We really enjoyed Mira Mare, which unfortunately is shut on a Saturday, fresh fish at Lourenco's, and Atlantico. Beware, the walk back up is up a very steep hill, though with a little rocket fuel from the bar, you won't notice it...! The villa is ideally placed for exploring and we found some beautiful secluded beaches. Lagos, Sagres, Cabo do Sao Vincente and Villa Do Bispo are all in easy driving distance, and there's a large supermarket about a mile and a half away at Budens. Top Tip: if you're buying bottles of Sagres, buy it in the large plastic crate. When you return the crate and bottles, you get a voucher for money off your shopping, about 5eur per crate and bottles. We got enough back to buy a decent bottle of wine to bring home with us...! You're also in near driving distance from Burgau where there are many bars and restaurants. Particularly recommended is The Beach Bar on the beach at Burgau. I would definitely stay at The View and this villa again. Booking, paying and arriving at the villa was extremely easy, and the owner's agent had left us some basic groceries, which was a lovely touch. This comes extremely highly recommended from us.

Special interest holidays:

This location, whilst ideal for Golf enthusiasts, provides the perfect location for beach or cliff top walking and painting holidays. Local cultural centres abound within a short driving distance; Lagos, only half an hour away, with its 14th century architecture and military history, is also a lively seaside town worthy of a full day trip. It is rivalled only by Cape St. Vincent lighthouse at the most westerly point of Europe. It is here the Atlantic and Mediterranean meet. Roaring waves break against the breathtaking sheer cliff face. Local stalls sell their wares of local crafts and woolly jumpers to brave the bracing Atlantic wind. Also visit Silves the old Moorish capital of the Algarve 6 miles north of Portimao. A very worthwhile half day trip.


There are many beaches in the area. Salema beach is less than five minutes away by car and is right beside the village. Sun loungers and parasols can be hired for the day at a nominal cost. Above the 'beach kiosk' is a good beach side restaurant. Across the road there is a cafe bar, and tapas bar. There is a good small cocktail bar and choice of other pleasant restaurants located along the picturesque main village street.


Faro Airport is 104 km away by car. Car rental is strongly advised.


'Intermarche' supermarket at Budens Vila do Bispo is 3.4 Km from the Villa.

The nearest beach is Salema less than five minutes by car. Parking available. A good surfing beach is 5.5km through the village of Hortus do Tabual. The Parque de Floresta Golf course is 3.3km from 'The View'. It is 20km to Lagos and Cape Saint Vincent at Sagres 20.4 km and takes approx 25 minutes.

Further Details:

'Intermarche' supermarket at Budens is just ten minutes away by car for everything you need.

Local shops in Salema include those selling tourist souvenirs, liquor, and some grocery essentials.
