The Experience

An exotic oasis that welcoming Sally has spent years creating – the guest book extols its virtues. It’s top-drawer ‘Santa Fe’ – all chunky beams and tree trunk shelves. Relax in the lushly tropical grounds, enjoy a beauty treatment or a massage under one of the gazebos, then jump into the pool with its tropical waterfall, overlooked by a Buddha and night-glittery trees.

The honesty bar on the top terrace is a great place to meet other guests – and locals too, who pop in for a sundowner. Three bedrooms are in the main house and one, beside the pool, is delightfully Mexican in style. Nearby Burgau, with its bars and restaurants, has kept something of its old fishing village character. But you may not want to go out when there’s a fabulous barbecue kitchen in the grounds for guests and you can stock your own fridge.

Breakfast on cold meats, cheeses, fresh bread or full English (order ahead). Guests often return, it’s a fun place.

I think it's a lovely place to stay in the Algarve, quite unique and I would imagine very friendly....I get the impression that Sally is a lot of fun and makes everyone's stay a memorable one. Guests return time and time again and speak very highly of Salsalito. The garden and pool area are lovely and I'm told that it all looks romantic at night time.

Georgie, Sawday's Inspector

Sally and Salsalito the perfect host and the perfect place to stay. We have had the best 9 days staying at the salsalito. Sally the owner is so welcoming and one of the nicest people you will ever meet The salsalito is like a perfect oasis of charm tranquility and style. The pool area is stunning and like your own private paradise. The breakfasts are fantastic with a large array of cheeses, meats breads, fruits everything you could want and more The salsalaito is situated in the perfect location the walk to the beach and town is 10 mins and a easy walk.thank you Sally we will be back Xxx

Carol, Eaton Bray

Absolutely beautiful! Sally is a wonderful host, the grounds are beautiful, the beach is close by or you can just hangout by the pool. We will be back!

Gayle, Phoenix

Absolutely superb place! We had a brilliant and relaxing time. Sally went out of her way. Gorgeous setting. The breakfasts were amazing (meats, cheeses, eggs, fresh fruit, gorgeous freshly squeezed juice, breads, jams... wow!). The pool is really pleasant - nice a large for a good swim, a tad 'refreshing' in April, but you soon warm up! The level of service, cleanliness, helpfulness and friendliness of Sally and her incredible assistant, Tanya, is superb. We also highly recommend Tanya's massage - 45 euro for a 75 min full body massage! Well well worth it! We will be going back for sure!

Adam, Manchester, UK

Every bit as good as the book said if not better, we had the pool room and it was fabulous, Sally and her assistant Laura were wonderful


Superb hideaway, lovely grounds and pool close to lively village with lots of bars and great food. Sally is a wonderful host, breakfast is delicious and rooms are lovely. Nothing is too much trouble for Sally and she is great fun. A lovely oasis! Jane & Lesley


An oasis of joy developed by Sally & Ralph - a more welcoming couple allowing you into their own home you couldn't wish for. Set in a delightful garden with a gorgeous pool and a cocktail cabinet to die for. Only a short walk from the centre of Burgau and a 10 minute drive from Largos for those wishing to experience a slightly busier shopping/dining experience. Would we return? ....... you bet!!

The neighbourhood

The house sits down an oleander-lined driveway, quietly tucked away from the road. You can walk to the Pig's Head, a restaurant and bar in about four minutes. Burgau, a small traditional Portuguese fishing village, has shops, restaurants and cafés and a good beach, wide and sandy. In the other direction is Lagos, about 20 minutes in the car and Praia da Luz is nine minutes by car. Sally can advise.

Local points of interest from Sally Eveleigh

  • Idyllic retreat set in amongst a tropical paradise.
  • Salsalito is a 10 minute walk, along the coast to the charming fishing village of Burgau, with stunning cliff top views of the sea and surrounding countryside.
  • Massage and beauty treatments available under the Moroccan gazebo. You can also make bookings for local boat tours and other recreational activities through Salsalito.


Sally Eveleigh

Sally and her husband came to Portugal some years ago - her talented husband built Salsalito. She's been running the B&B on her own since his sad death and is a wonderful host, living on site and always available to help with local information. She has a right-hand man called Gavin who you will also meet.
