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.

Places to visit on holiday in Sesmarias, Portugal

Sesmarias is excellently located for exploration of the central region of the Algarve. The favourite tourist centre in the Algarve, Albufiera is just 4km away, and within 10 minutes driving you could be exploring the delightful towns of Lagoa, Portimao and Carvoeiro and all they have to offer, from the water sports of Carvoeiro to the championship golf courses around Portimao.

Weather in Sesmarias, Portugal

The Mediterranean climate of the Algarve is a huge asset to the region. There is never a bad time to visit as even during the depths of winter, average monthly temperatures are very marginally less than average July temperatures in Britain! In summer, temperatures soar into the mid 30’s (˚C) on the vast majority of days, and the evenings are delightfully warm, allowing you to sit comfortably on the beach and watch the sun disappear over the horizon.

Flights to Sesmarias, Portugal

Faro Airport (FAO) is just 35 minutes east of a holiday rental apartment or villa in Sesmarias. With regular daily flights arriving into Faro Airport every day, finding a cheap flight should not pose any problems. Due to the competition between airlines there are often some amazing deals to be found.

perfect villa to relax with family and friends

5 of 5
We stayed in Villa Casa San Marco for two weeks with a mixture of family and friends. The Villa has been tastefully fitted out and is excellently equipped. The villa was very clean and has a lovely pool area and a games room .The bedrooms are comfortable and all have en-suite facilities Sesmarias is quiet but has a number of restaurants and a couple of bars, and a very good minimarket. We would recommend the Oregano Restaurant, great food at a reasonable price. Great choice of supermarkets a short drive away. Carvoeiro is a 25 min walk or 5 mins drive away. Good beaches within 5 /10 min drive. A Hire car would be needed to make the most of the area though not essential. The manager, Mark, was excellent, providing a first class service. We are already planning our return!

Comfortable villa in a very convenient location

4 of 5
Spacious villa, clean, well equipped and well cared for. Has a quaint Portuguese style feel about it. Small supermarket 3 minutes walk away which supplies fresh bread daily, plus a few cafes within easy walking distance. Close to many attractions, beaches & towns, so a good location to explore the Algarve. Owner/manager arrived & sorted out a problem with the hot water within an hour after we called. The only negative for us considering we had no small children, was the pool safety fence goes across the terrace which makes it feel a little enclosed. Highly recommended holiday accommodation.
