Hidden away behind private gates and perched above Salema beach is the ultra modern and super stylish Villa Mar Azur.
Inside, a fresh breeze floats in from the sea and tiled floors and air conditioning add to the feeling of cool. Modern artworks adorn a few of the white-painted walls but, with views from almost every room over the turquoise ocean, the sea is the real star here.
In the mornings, take your breakfast out onto the swimming pool terrace and wake up slowly over coffee and the sound of the waves rolling in. The terrace is kitted out with sun loungers, plenty of comfy seating and a telescope so you can watch life on the ocean waves as it passes you by.
If ever you feel you need a break from the heat of the sun, you can take yourself indoors where azure blue sofas and armchairs are gathered by the floor-to-ceiling windows, and read quietly in the shade, looking out to sea. A spacious and airy kitchen opens straight out onto the dining area, where you can enjoy delicious meals with a view.
And as well as the five en-suite bedrooms there’s also a self-contained apartment comprising en-suite double bedroom, living area, kitchenette and bathroom. It’s perfect for a nanny, grandparents joining your party, or anyone who just needs a little extra peace and quiet from time to time.
Being perfectly located for the beach, the villa is also just a short distance from the centre of town and by car you can visit lots of the local sights. This area is renowned for its stunning coastline and fabulous food scene. You’ll return home, sunkissed, satiated and pleasantly sleepy.
When it’s time for bed, throw back crisp cotton sheets and sink into comfy mattresses. We recommend you leave the curtains drawn back when you drift off to sleep so the first thing you see when you open your eyes is your azure ocean view.
