Make a holiday rental apartment or villa in Sesmarias, Portugal your home away from home

Perched on a hill overlooking the Atlantic Coast of Portugal is Sesmarias. It is a wonderfully quiet destination which could not be better positioned in the Algarve. Located within 10 minutes of Guia, Lagoa, Carvoeiro and Portimao, there is no end of entertainment available from a Sesmarias villa, yet no tourist crowds to fight through. There are few places in the Algarve where you can make use of all the best facilities yet stay in relaxing, peaceful surroundings. Sesmarias is one such place.

Things to do on holiday in Sesmarias, Portugal

Although Sesmarias is not a huge tourist destination in itself, it is a delightful place to be based on the Algarve coast, and is home to a handful of excellent restaurants, a supermarket and numerous tennis courts and swimming pools, meaning that you will have all you need to enjoy a wonderful holiday right on your doorstep. A leisurely 10 minute walk from your Sesmarias villa will also place you on one of three of the finest beaches in the whole of the Algarve; Sao Rafael Beach, Evaristo Beach or Castelo Beach. Fishing, scuba diving and sight seeing trips can all be organised from these beaches too.

The countryside behind the village is perfect for exploration on foot, bike or horseback. The coastal paths which stretch away from a Sesmarias villa towards Lagoa and Albufiera are brilliant for walking and cycling, especially if you take your bathing costume with you for when you stumble across the perfect spot for a dip. Locations for the start of routes, stables and bike hire centres are available from the Sesmarias information centre.

There are plenty of activity centres to keep children happy during a family holiday to Sesmarias. The Splash n’Slide water park is the largest in Europe, offering many hours of entertainment, and is located within half an hour of a Sesmarias villa, as are the Zoo Marine Park in Guia, Aqualand and Krazy World in Algoz.

                                          Gorgeous Villa

                                          5 of 5
                                          Absolutely gorgeous villa, extremely well appointed. We were lucky to be the first ever guests in the villa. 3 generations of the family had more than enough room to stay for 2 weeks without anyone getting underfoot. Lovely area of Carvoeiro to stay.

                                          Outstanding

                                          5 of 5
                                          We arrived at the villa in August 2016 for a family holiday - 6 adults, 2 children and a baby. We booked after seeing the villa on the internet. Our initial common concerns over fraudulent advertising were listened to and addressed promptly and professionally by the manager Rudi. When we arrived, we were thrilled to see the quality of the accommodation; 4 en suite bedrooms and a very well equipped kitchen. The pool area was excellent, consisting of a good sized pool, a hot tub and a well appointed barbeque area. There was also a table tennis table and a pool table in the basement. We were met at the villa by Rudi the manager who was very helpful throughout our stay. We had maid service twice a week and the pool was maintained twice a week. They say seeing is believing and we could not believe the quality of the villa which is set in a quiet area of Carvoeiro. We could not fault the holiday and would definitely return to the villa in the future. In our opinion car hire is essential.

                                          Immaculate, fully equipped in a beautiful location

                                          A short review of our wonderful holiday to Casa Bah in Carvoeiro. We were a party of two mums with six children of various ages - three with special needs including Aspergers, Autism and ADHD. The journey was quick and straightforward from Southend Airport to Faro with a simple 30-minute taxi ride from Faro airport to the front door. This was facilitated by using the EasyJet “Special Assistance” facility and pre-booking our seats at the front of the plane to keep waiting times to a minimum. The villa itself was spacious and immaculately decorated with the huge bedrooms, kitchen, lounge, TV/entertainment area and pool room containing all the mod-cons needed to keep a large group entertained and very comfortable. The large swimming itself was simply gorgeous with a very shallow end accessed via wide steps and then graduating to a deeper end, suitable for swimming. It was protected by an electric safety pool cover which we used every time the pool was unattended. We visited Carvoeiro town centre numerous times, managing to easily order 8 seater taxis at a cost of approx. 8 euro each way. There were plenty of restaurants to visit with our group of extremely fussy eaters all being able to find something they liked. Carla (Manager) was a wonder in disguise, keeping everything clean and tidy and Brian (the owner) made sure every question we had was answered clearly and concisely. Brian even went the extra mile in sending us special photos to create a “Social Story” book for our children so that they knew what to expect. I cannot recommend this villa enough and looking forward to visiting again.
