Just back from an wonderful stay in Salema. We've been once before and loved the old fashioned feel of the village, just like stepping back in time to Cornwall 30 years ago but with heat and sunshine.
We haven't stayed at the View before, but felt compelled to write about how lovely this complex is. Its a private development. We stayed in a great house with lovely views of the bay. The houses are finished to a very high finish and our house was beautifully furnished in a contemporary style with all white french style furniture.
The finishing touches were nice; quality bed linen, duck feathers pillows, beach towels, a library of up to date DVD's and books as well as a telescope and a very well equipped kitchen and BBQ made the house very comfortable.
The pool is very big and was quiet generally during our stay so we never had any issues with sun loungers.
We particularly enjoyed long lunches overlooking Salema & Zavial beach in the various restaurants. Fresh fish is a particular speciality.
Highlights of our trip were; the grotto boat trip & dolphin safari from Lagos, the surf beach at Amado and for me the spa at Parque da floresta.
Would recommend this villa and the holiday for families of any age. Salema is a very safe beach with lifeguard, however we went 10 mins up the road to very exciting west coast wild beaches for fun with our teenagers. The teenagers were also able to go out at night to the bars of Salema which they enjoyed with a 5 minute walk back home later.
