We spent a week in this wonderful villa in June as a family group with young children and loved it.
It was only a short drive from Faro airport which was a real bonus and we even got a discount on the car hiire cost as we'd booked through SImply Morzine (make sure you ask the Simply Salema team about this).
We arrived at the Villa in the early evening and were thrilled with the quality, style and cleanliness of the villa and its facilities - pool, games room etc. My wife is a stickler for cleanliness and it even met her standards!!!! The rooms are very well decorated and the communal areas offer loads of extra, DVD player, flat screen tv, books etc. and loads of info about the village of salema and the local area and all there is to do.
Salema - a relatively quiet fishing village ( get up early and you can watch the fishing boats land there catch on the beach) with a few good bars and a few good restaurants. we ate at the villa most nights ( on the balcny overlooking the sea - awesome) and ate out a few times and were more than well enough catered for.
Lagos is a town only a short drive away (back towards Faro) with a supermarket, marina, and great fish market where all the fish caught in the local villages is bought to be sold. loads of shops, galleries ( its a bit of an art centre) pubs, restaurants. we spent 2 days there and its close enough to just pop out for some essentials.
There's loads of golf nearby if thats your thing - we didn;t get chance to play but will do on our next trip.
The villa hold pride of place atop the cliff overlooking the village and the beach and the seascape. Villa has a pool, table tennis, 6ft snooker, table football , darts, more than enough to entertain the kids.
We're hoping to get out there again early next year.
