This is a great location in the Algarve. Salema is a lovely town; beautiful beach, great restaurants. This property is within easy walking distance of the beach. The room itself was fine--the roof was sloped and that made it feel small, but adequate for our needs. The kitchen was well supplied. The owner/manager was friendly and helpful. We appreciated our...

We rented a studio apartment with a south facing terrace. The terrace may have been larger than the apartment! The studio had a small sitting/eating area, a double bed (two twins), a small well equipped kitchen and a bath with sink, shower and toilet. There was a clothes closet as well as another eave closet that could be used for...

We have visited Salema on many occasions and left booing a little late for our Sept visit. Found this and booked the 1 bed apartment and were not disssapointed. A 3 minute walk to the beach and restaurants and a very quite location. Well appointed and spotlessly clean. Very pleased.

This is a great apartment located one half block to town. We had a spacious 2 bedroom apartment for 4 adults. The deck has a partial view of the ocean between 2 buildings. Having a kitchen saved time and money as we did not have to go out for every meal, just when we preferred. The only thing that could...

We stayed here over Easter with another couple in the 3 bed apartment. It was spacious, well equipped & immaculately clean. It was great to have an en-suite along with a separate bathroom & toilet. We were only 2 couples, but even for more this would have been more than adequate. It has a large outside patio with BBQ. It...

We stayed at Filhas do Mar for three nights in a two-bedroom, 2-1/2 bath apartment with living room, dining room and full kitchen. This complex is in a quiet, very convenient location, walking distance to beach, shops and restaurants with on-site parking. Each bedroom had two twin beds and were not as comfortable as I would have liked, but the...

We stayed at Filhas do Mar for two nights, and found it to be a great spot. Pieter was a fantastic host, and our room had a fantastic balcony with a view out to the beach.

“I think the best apartment is on the top floor, as they are the most private and have best views, however the reality is you probably haven't got much choice as the flats on each of the floors vary in size and so depends on your party size.”
