Eight members of our local walking group stayed at the villa for a week's walking. The walks were excellent - some inland, some coastal in different areas of the Algarve. The wild flowers were in full bloom - wild orchids, lupins - vast areas were just smothered in colour. Our guide Lol was very knowledgeable, knew the area like the back of his hand and took us to some interesting tavernas for our lunch. I would not hesitate to recommend any walking group to try this as an excitingly different walking holiday. Our transport to the start place of each walk was provided and our drivers - Paulo or Mike (the owner) were very informative.

I last visited the villa for a self catering family holiday with my sons and grandchildren, five years ago. The villa was as good as ever - maintained to a very high standard and my walk into Salema brought back lots of happy memories as it has hardy changed at all.....it is still a sleepy little fishing village with golden, sandy beaches.

This time we had an inclusive package at the villa, so our chef provided us with sumptuous breakfasts and evening meals. The villa is very well equipped with comfortable sea-facing bedrooms, private pool and amazing views from all of the balconies. We also enjoyed two excursion days which enabled us to see much more of Portugal. Our transfers to the villa were also part of our package.

If you are a member of a walking group and are seeking a walking holiday with a difference then this is without doubt worth trying! I recommend it wholeheartedly!

For nine out of the ten of us it was our first visit to both Salema and Portugal, and what an introduction - wonderful food from Dave and Nicki, stunning views out to sea, Mike the owner was a great tour guide showing us around and imparting interesting information of local places and sites and beaches we would never have seen had we tried to do it alone. The accommodation and amenities at Casa das Estevas are splendid and are there to be enjoyed should you just want to relax. We went for a holiday with bowls, and the three clubs we played at, (organised by Mike), were good and the opponents friendly and welcoming, supplying us with bowls and good food.. We would definitely recommend this holiday to any bowlers, or indeed walkers, artists, etc and is also an excellent location for family self-catering.

Having visited in 2010 I brought my own group of bowlers in April 2011 and we all agreed it was a wonderful holiday. Excellent facilities, marvellous food prepared by our resident chef Max. Weather was also very kind and the bowling arrangements all went smoothly and much to our enjoyment. Watching the sun rising from our bed in the morning will also be a long lasting memory. Hope to return in the future for more.

For those responsible for booking the "family reunion" holiday you will no doubt have serached many many sites, so when I came accross Simply Salema there was a bit of this just looks too good to be true - I can assure you that there is no catch. This villa lived up to and beyond expectation on all fronts. If there was a rating for private villas Cassa Estevas would definately be 5* plus for comfort, location, views, pool area, games room, quality of furnishings and linen. All rooms have private bathroom and all with the most amazing sea view. There is more than enough room for everyone to have their space and the pleasure of waking in the morning to magnificent sunrises whilst enjoying the privacy of your own balcony space was very special. Great service from the time of booking and from the Villa Manager. Comprehensive information on local restaurants/bars and activities was much appreciated. All in all a great house for a family reunion, group of friends for a simply amazing holiday.
