MODERN COMFORT IN CONVERTED FISHERMEN'S COTTAGE
Set in the village of Salema, a perfectly preserved vestige of the Algarve of old, the Townhouse Estrela do Mar - Vila Vita Collection comprises two former fishermen’s houses. Connected via an alley on ground level and a glass bridge on the upper floor, these two adjoining annexes combine old-world Algarve architecture with new-world comforts, and make an ideal space for either two couples or a family of four. Though the exterior still maintains its traditional form, so typical of this seaside village, the interiors have been refitted to deliver all the comfort and style of 21st-century living.
The townhouse's absolute highlight is its terrace where a barbecue, table and chairs for four people as well as sun beds can be found: it offers a spectacular view of the golden beach of Salema, that is just seconds away.
The residence's Master bedroom impresses with absolutely breathtaking views of the Atlantic ocean, a king size bed, a flat TV screen and an en-suite shower room.
TOWNHOUSE ESTRELA DO MAR IS PART OF THE VILA VITA COLLECTION
Salema is a small town of Budens parish, located in the municip ality of Vila do Bispo, in the most western part of the Algarve. It is situated at the base of a cliff around the beach with the same name and is part of the Natural Park of Southwest Alentejo and Algarve coast. The village is one of the few communities that have a small indigenous fishing fleet of traditional colourful boats that cast into the sea to catch snapper, mackerel, sardines and octupus that can be tasted freshly grilled at local restaurants the same night. For active holiday-makers there are a lot of golf courses and tennis courts as well as riding-stables and trails in the area. Furthermore, you can go on a boat trip or – if you are quite adventurous – there is the possibility to go paragliding.
