The Western Algarve

Within a short walk you can find numerous small secluded bays or with more time you can enjoy the costal paths leads in both directions, Lagos to the east or Sagres to the west. There are numerous trails suitable for mountain biking which can lead you to explore the Atlantic coast and interior of the peninsular. The countryside has a wonderful myriad of wild life, Eagle owls, Bee eater, Nightingales, Hoopies, Buzzards have all been sighted here. The sea birds make a amazing display of diving into the ocean, along the coast you find mussels to pick on a full moon low tide, star fish or very occasionally a cuttle fish or dolphin may swim by. This unspoilt haven is ideal for walking, mountain and road biking and horse riding. Few of the tracks are marked and we can recommend local guides if you want to explore further.


The nearest village is the picturesque fishing village of Salema, offering local fish from the boats which still get hauled up on to the sand in the early hours. Watching the moon rise over the ocean is a mesmerizing sight. There are many beautiful experiences to discover such as watching the sun rise while swimming in the sea or walking through the fields on a twilight evening breathing in the scent of the warm earth, while the long shadows create a magical atmosphere in the landscape. Our remote location allows you the possibility to see the night sky in its full glory with a stillness broken by the occasional call of the night birds.
