“Amazing place”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 24, 2013 for a stay in June 2013

person found this review helpful

Amazing villa, pool and location. Peaceful but located within walking distance of Salema with supermarkets, bars and restaurants. Great beach. Extremely sfae for young children (we have a 2 yr old) as fully enclosed. Can't actually think of anything missing, all possibilities covered, including a shower at the pool side. Will definitely be coming back.

“Highly recommended”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 16, 2013 for a stay in July 2013

Wonderful villa, beautiful views and very helpful staff both before we arrived and whilst we were there.
The only small negative point to mention was the pool was too cold (26 degrees) for my 2 young children even with the pool heating on. However, it was a great holiday and I'd highly recommend it.

“A perfect place to stay”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 11, 2013 for a stay in June 2013

This is a fantastic place to stay and relax on holiday. As it had everything we needed, we only left the villa a few times to go to pick up provisions and go to the nearby beach (which is also recommended). The pool area and games room got a lot of use during the week but the whole villa is a joy to be in, beautifully designed and kept in immaculate condition. It was a total pleasure to stay at Casa das Estevas, easily one of the best holidays I have ever had and that was echoed by all of our group, adults and kids alike!

“wonderful villa in lovely location”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 24, 2013 for a stay in April 2013

Our family party of 10 [ 2 years old to 60 ] had a wonderful week in this spacious and beautiful villa with amazing views over the coastline and salema beach. The villa has 5 very comfortable bedrooms all with spectacular outlooks and the living/dining room also was a lovely space to relax and eat together in. Salema is great place --low key tourism and charming. The nearby supermarket was well stocked and the town also had several small grocery shops. The family all enjoyed using the well equipped games room . The pool was cool despite the heating being on. The village and beach are a short walk away.

“Amazing holiday with friends; beautiful location”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 13, 2012 for a stay in September 2012

We spent a week at Salema with a group of friends in late September and could not fault the this wonderful, family run property on the Western Algave.

Stunning location with plenty to occupy us in the surrounding area, a villa which has been finished to the highest specification and professional and expert service from the moment we first got in touch, special mention to Ben - thanks again, nothing was too much trouble.

Would recommend to anyone!

“Stunning accommodation and location!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 8, 2012 for a stay in September 2012

The Estavas was simply stunning! We always hear the term 'location, location, location' but in the case of Casa das Estevas, it was all about 'location, accommodation and hospitality'!

Every aspect of our stay was top draw. The views were amazing. To wake up to that see view every day was a dream. The cliff top position was a treat but yet so close to the town centre. Literally a 5 minute walk.

In the town there are a good selection of quaint bars/restaurants and of course the beach! Salema has a lovely big clean beach which isn't too busy. Salema is such a traditional fishing town with character and not drowned in tourism. Coastal towns like Salema are hard to come by and we are delighted that we found it.

The pool was beautiful and clean and there was plenty of space for everyone to relax and sunbathe in the consistent Algarve sun!

The facilities are great if you have children or if you are just with friends. The Estevas has a large fun play/activity room which kept us all entertained day/night. The fixtures and fittings and the general specification of the villa is immaculate. You can tell that the owners have great taste and pride in their property.

We can't recommend Simply Salema enough (who we used to book the Estevas). It was refreshing to liaise with the actual villa owners in contrast to previous holidays and other villas when we have booked them through young pushy sales people on the phone who have no local knowledge and may not have ever visited the accommodation which they are trying to sell.

We have already booked for next year already and can't wait!!!

“Absolute bliss”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 4, 2012 for a stay in September 2012

Thanks so much for letting my husband and I have a few days away at your amazing place! What else can you say for one of the loveliest villas and one of the most beautiful beaches we've ever visited, combined with one of the most unspoilt towns we've seen in the Algarve? We've got high standards and love travelling, but sunrise views from the bedroom, days spent sunning at the pool side and on the various decks or down on the beach, walks down the beach to Salema, dinner at excellent restaurants a short walk away - we loved it, and we didn't bother using the car the whole time we were there. We've promised our kids that we'll take them next time - we'd also be happy to go with another family or a group of adults. Highly recommended to all. As for the details: It was clean and as described, very well kitted out with quality items (both in the kitchen and the numerous games room "toys"), the local manager was friendly and made sure we felt comfortable calling him (we didn't need to). We paid extra for the pool heating and were glad that we did, we're tired of those "would be nice if" holidays in Portugal early or late season with beautiful pools which are too cold to relax in - it was worth it. There are no downsides to this villa - book it and enjoy!
