Vila Vita Collection

Villa Mar à Vista

Beachside serenity in the Western Algarve

Sitting atop a gently sloping cliff far from the madding tourist crowds of the Algarve, Mar à Vista villa is sandwiched between the flour-fine sands of the unspoilt Praia de Salema beach and the whitewashed hamlet of Salema, a traditional Algarve village. The villa sits on the edge of a protected national park and offers head-on ocean views.

Built into the coastal hills and whitewashed to match the local architectural style, Mar à Vista fits in perfectly with its surrounds. Inside, the south-facing property is flooded with sunlight, which pours into every room through large windows. The design is clean and contemporary, with subtle African influences visible throughout.

Mar à Vista’s elevated position ensures spectacular panoramas of the Atlantic coastline. The views reach a climax at the villa’s cliffside patio and infinity pool, where—from certain angles—it appears guests could swim right off the edge and into the ocean.

Shared spaces, including a living room complete with fireplace and flat-screen TV, a fully-equipped kitchen, and indoor and outdoor dining areas—the latter with knee-buckling views of the Salema and Sagres coast—provide dreamy settings for memorable summer days and nights spent with family and friends.
