A unique and beloved villa with sensational views of Salema

We are so thrilled to be offering this charming, quirky and much loved second home in Salema which is also one of our most 'eco friendly' properties. Salema is virtually fossil fuel free with solar electricity, hot water and solar pool heating. There is also additional electric heating for the pool at an addtional cost for the cooler months.

Vista Salema has been in the owner's family for over 50 years and the cherished property exudes happy memories and enjoys breathtaking views of the pretty fishing village and the sparkling sea beyond.  It is situated on a hill which allows for the generous views and the area is part of the National Park.  The property is surrounded by established plants, shrubs and succulents and is very peaceful.

Vista Salema is traditional in style with Portuguese tiles, wooden furniture and comfortable sofas around a cosy fireplace surrounded by a colourful collection of books, paintings, plates and ornaments.

The kitchen is in a country style with wooden cabinets and pretty tiles and is extremely well equipped with everything you could need including some additional perks like a wine fridge, Kenwood hand mixer and coffee machine.  

The bedrooms are furnished in the same unique style with splashes of colour and personal touches and all have high-quality mattresses.  The master bedroom is on the first floor and is reached by a staircase with a rope instead of a bannister so care should be taken. The owners can provide a stairgate for extra reassurance.  This bedroom has doors that lead out to a terrace overlooking the pool area and the spectacular views of Salema.

Outside there is a delightful terrace with an electric awning.  There is both a comfortable seating area for relaxing and reading a book or enjoying a drink, and outside dining furniture for alfresco dining while making the most of the stunning views.  The pool area is reached by a few steps from the terrace and is gated for additional reassurance with little ones, although care should always be taken of course.  

Just a 5 minute walk to the beach and various restaurants, this is an ideal choice for those who prefer to wander out for dinner in the evenings.  The long stretch of beach is generally quieter than some of the other popular beaches in the Algarve with a real sense of relaxation and calm.

Vista Salema also has heating in the bedrooms, a cosy fireplace in the living room and double glazing making this an excellent choice for out of season holidays.

So many lovely memories have been made here and it is this that makes the house so enchanting. Not to mention the amazing views and proximity to Salema vlllage. It is just lovely."
