Casa Raposa is a charming 3 bedroom cottage right by the sea in the wonderful fishing village of Salema; a gem on the Algarve, an hour from Faro airport. You can't get a property much closer to the ocean than this gorgeous house!
The cottage is full of character with old beamed ceilings and has been totally refurbished (summer 2018) We have wifi.
Salema lies on the Algarve's calm south coast, but it's great bonus is that it's just 15 minutes from Portugal's west coach surfing beaches. So for anyone who'd rather have some big wave action, the surf beaches are easily accessible. You can keep all the family happy on one holiday.
There's a reason American travel writer, STEVE RICKS describes Salema as is his most special place on the planet. The village lies on a wide, calm, golden-sand bay - fringed by a few outstanding restaurants and bars. It's a perfect place to escape, with or without the kids.
Our lovely cottage is smack-bang in the heart of the old part of the village, a 1-minute walk to the beach. It's 'real Portugal' at its best. We lived here when we first moved to Portugal 13 years ago so it's a real 'home from home' for us and has everything you need for a relaxed seaside holiday.
Beautifully and tastefully refurbished the cottage has: * 2 double bedrooms * 1 small bedroom with bunkbeds * 2 'wetroom' bathrooms * Open-plan kitchen/sitting room with log-burning fire
The cottage has sea views from the upstairs bedrooms & a small outside eating area on the pedestrian-only cobbled street.

Having stayed at this lovely cottage a few times now, it just gets better with every visit and we cant wait to come back again this year.
It is such a wonderful old traditional Portuguese cottage, tastefully furnished and located in the most beautiful fishing village, a stone's throw away from a lovely sandy beach with plenty of outstanding restaurants to choose from.
Also a must-visit to Bar Central in the square - a charming bar with music and entertainment. And for those who want to play golf, probably the best course is a mile away. Or do like most people do, just sit and chill out on fabulous Salema beach!

The cottage in Salema is absolutely amazing. It was very clean and everything was like we expected. The communication was easy and we found it easily. We spent a beautiful weekend there, Lucys tips about walking along the coast were very helpful. Getting up in the morning and walking down 1 minute to the beach - you can't expect more! It was a great experience and I hope to come back one day. Thanks Lucy for everything, we enjoyed a lot the weekend! Ira

One week once a year? Why not forever? Absolutely brilliant.
We loved the house, we loved the feeling of real Portugal and loved being so close to the beach.
I spent every morning down on the beach with my daughter watching the fisherman come in. What more could we want as a family?
Thank you, we'll be back!

Just one word...WOW! We're coming back. Obrigado!

We had the most amazing time in Salema. The cottage is just gorgeous, beautifully presented, cosy and just just moments from the stunning beach. The owners did everything they could to make our stay as easy as possible and were always on hand if we needed anything. It’s a perfect location, Salema is such a peaceful unspoilt spot and we can’t wait to return.

Glorious week, totally relaxed. Perfect spot. Too much to eat. Will be back!
A perfect week with the grandkids

We had a fantastic week with the grandkids.
The house was just what we wanted - the children were all desperate to sleep in the bunk beds!
We'll be back. Thanks to you both.

We had a lovely time, again, in Lucy's beautiful house. The communication with Lucy before was excellent, the location is amazing, we didn't have to move the car during the whole time. Everything was like on the pictures, very clean and she even put beach towels for us.
