“If you want to visit Portugal then this is the place to be”
Reviewed July 20, 2016 for a stay in July 2016

Just back from 2 weeks , husband and two boys 15 and 11.
This villa is truly stunning - beautifully decorated with everything you will need for your holidays and then some.
Great wi-fi (happy boys)
We actually brought along our Apple TV , kept boys happy when it was just too hot to be outside
Location of villa is literally 5 minute drive to Salema - the most beautiful village, great beach, and gorgeous gorgeous restaurants (Boia and Aqua De Boca)
Owner of Aqua De Boca now has a lovely beach restaurant which is just perfect for lunch too (can't remember name)

Also Villa located less than 10 minutes from the Cabana beach, really cool place and again beautiful beach -

Book all restaurants

Villa located on a golf course - husband happy, the club house has a gym, teenager happy.

We visited Sagres (to be honest a bit disappointing as a town, but the scenery on the way and sun set worth the trip)

Lagos 20 minutes away - great for things to see, eat, etc.....watched Portugal win the european cup - so good fun.

All and all a great holiday - perfect location, already planning the return trip

“Take us back there! ”
Reviewed June 8, 2016 for a stay in May 2016

All the feedback & images can't begin to do this place justice! It's heaven! Totally worth the drive a little further out from the airport (max 1hour) ..the reward? A villa that is a beautifully decorated home with every possible amenity you could want, an idyllic pool overlooking the golf course, fantastic restaurant recommendations by Lorraine and serious local knowledge of ever corner of this beautiful part of Portugal. Stunning local beaches and restaurants and despite hiring a car for the duration of our stay, we kept coming back to the local beach, Salema where we enjoyed an evening cocktail (or 4!) in Adventura Bar followed by dinner overlooking the sea in Boia. Lorraine was right..there is no place like it and if you want to get away from it all, this is the place to be..there's lots to see & do here if you want to but you can also just sit on the beach and take it all in and that's just what we did. Cannot wait to go back!!

This Villa has everything. It is fabulously equipped, a real home from home. The beds are very comfortable and the view is stunning. The Villa is bigger than the photos suggest. The booking was simple and the management company were great. We didn't hire a car. It's about a 10 minute walk to intermarche and taxis can be booked to get about. My husband played the golf course which he said was fab. He also played the course at Espiche. Salema is beautiful, we ate at Atlantico, the food and service were both great. We also got a taxi to Lagos, which is great for a stroll/shopping and the Bahia bar on the beach is lively and great for kids.
Would definitely consider booking again if we returned to this area.

“We returned to stay in Loraine's beautiful Villa in October this year.”
Reviewed October 31, 2014 for a stay in October 2014

We returned to stay in Loraine's beautiful Villa in October this year. We are cyclists, so there plenty of routes for leisure or serious cycling.. The village of Salema is ideal eating (excellent restaurants) and drinking and only a short spin down from the villa . The villa is has been beautifully kept an maintained. Its one of the most comfortable houses I've stayed on the Algarve..Its like home from home..
Also,this area is so unspoiled . The beaches are numerous and spectacular , particularly when you head up along the western coast .
We stayed here last year and no doubt will book it next year..
Thanks for another great holiday on the Algarve ..

“Outstanding in every way”
Reviewed June 28, 2014 for a stay in June 2014

What can I say about 148?

I'd say home from home but it's more than that. Beautifully decorated and fully equipped. Perfectly located for exploring and a short 6 euro taxi to the wonderful fishing village of Salema with it's amazing restaurants and beach bars.

The pool is amazing and with such an amazing backdrop of rolling hills and lush countryside. And so tranquil and peaceful. The outdoor barbecue is great for laid back dining with both the terrace and a balcony overlooking to dine on.

Bedroom is so comfy and the living room is a great retreat.

All in all 6* accommodation - a real credit to lorraine and the management team!

Thank you so much - we'll be back again as soon as we can
