My husband and I and our 3 teenage daughters stayed at Casa da Lana for 7 days. It is a great condo with a beautiful ocean view and about a 10 minute walk to the beach and center of town. The town has many English and German visitors, we were one of the few Americans, but we found the locals to be incredibly friendly and welcoming. I found the bed a tad hard for me, but my kids had no issues with their beds. The kitchen is well supplied with all the essentials.....even a Nespresso coffee machine and milk frother. And as a cook, it was great to have sharp knives and proper bread knives too. There was also a BBQ on the patio. They have 2 levels of balconies for sitting in the sun. The one on the rooftop has a great view and us sunny all day. The living room had comfortable couches and a TV and DVD player. They did have a few DVDs but it might be nice to bring some favorites if you stay here. They also had a puzzle that we had fun completing. They have a small pool, that was too cold for me, but my girls enjoyed it. When we went, the condo complex was very empty and quiet as was the town and beach area. We drove to different areas, Sagres, Bestiche and Lagos. We drove the 30 minutes to Lagos and did a kayak trip around the caves and rock formations which was beautiful. We also drove the 20 minutes past Sagres to Bestiche Beach which is right before Cape Sao Vicente. There was a beautiful beach with a great restaurant Terra across the street. Just a note, to book the condo we had to do a wire transfer of funds, which was surprisingly easy as we could do it on-line from our bank. We thoroughly enjoyed the comfort, beauty and location of this condo.

My family and I stayed here for 1 week in May 2012. The villa was very modern and stylish with amazing views of the beach and Salema. The villa was extremely well equipped and felt like a home from home with all mod cons. The beach was stunning and Salema itself had a great choice of restaurants serving up great food. We had a really relaxing holiday, everyone was very friendly, and May was the perfect time of year to visit. Would definitely return!

Our holiday was a treat to celebrate a wedding anniversary. We couldn't have picked a more ideal location, both the town & villa were fantastic. Even with six people staying at the villa there was plenty of space. Sun lovers will particularly enjoy the roof terrace! Views are stunning & the steep walk home from the town & beach was just enough to make us feel we'd burned off at least some of our evening meal. Villa provides everything you could want, all of a very good quality. Would recommend car hire and flat shoes. Perfect if you like a quiet life with simple but gorgeous food in a stunning location.
