Believe me the title the title i have given these comments really does describe the accomodation,hospitality,food and the views are stunning.The purpose of my short trip was to test the accomodation,view the area and check on the immediate area for its suitability as a base to play bowls without having to travel long distances.With five on suite double bedrooms all with unintrerrupted sea views,a chef who caters for everyones palatte the accomodation is perfect for a group of bowling freinds to base themselves,to enjoy games of bowls at the nearby venues of Parque da Floresta ( 5/6 mins)and Alvor (20/25 mins)both clubs are really freindly and can accomodate full club tours or smaller groups with open weekly chummy competitions which visitors are welcome to take part.Both clubs provide Bowls and Shoes although i would advocate taking your own bowling shoes.Simply Salema is about an hours drive from Faro Airport and they will provide transport for the transfer and taking you to bowls or site seeing in the area.When you get back your room will have been cleaned, so you can swim in the sea or in the villas own pool, or just relax with a cup of tea or an aperatif before your evening meal.After which the villa as a large games room where Table Tennis,Pool,Snooker and Darts are on offer or if you wish to keep up with the soaps then the lounge is equipped with Sky T V. I cannot rate this accomodation high enough, and is excellent value for money.If you did not want to be pampered then you can rent the it and self cater and use the pool side barby. I will return with a group of freinds to be spoilt Then only downside is that it cannot accomodate more people.As immediate Past President of Leicestershire Bowling Association i would have no hesitation in recommending this accomodation for bowling breaks especially in the period late October to March when you get the bonus of still being able to play outside on grass and usually in warm sunshine.Book early as i believe when the word gets out about this hidden gem then demand will be high. Go on give it a try.
