A relaxing break begins with a holiday rental in Sesmarias.

Beautiful beaches and plenty of sun: these are two of the main reasons why visitors flock to the stylish town of Sesmarias on the Algarve coast. Sesmarias' location, directly on the beach, makes it an ideal choice for those looking to book an aquatic holiday. Another advantage to booking a holiday rental in Sesmarias is its proximity to the bigger, more bustling towns of Albufeira and Vilamoura.

Albufeira is a mere three miles from Sesmarias and is a must-see for anyone visiting the area. For those looking to stay closer to the action, HomeAway also has many comfortable rental options in the Albufeira Old Town and near the famous Sao Joao strip. HomeAway also offers a selection of comfortable rental accommodations in nearby Faro, located about 30 miles from Sesmarias.

Perfect for the family - would book here again

5 of 5
Being a first-timer, we did have reservations about the property and location but thankfully everything met our expectations. The villa is located in a rural area so the closest supermarket is a 25 min walk away or 5 mins by cab. The taxis are very prompt and arrive within 10 mins, however the return journey back to the villa was troublesome - I had the location of the villa pinned to my offline Google maps so had to direct many drivers back to the location. The villa itself was immaculate, we had the bare essentials provided when we arrived which included, milk, bread, eggs and other bits which was nice. The rooms were clean and everything was as we expected it to be. We had cleaners at the villa 2-3 times in the week we were there . The slight issue we did experience was hot water which seemed to only run hot during the afternoon - dead cold in the morning. We did contact the management regarding this but on the first day the office was closed, on the second day nobody was answering the phone, when we finally did make contact they sent a plumber around to address the issue - as he explained the hot water is supplied via the solar panels on the roof - this was switched over to use both electric and solar power which corrected problem a few days later. Wifi in the house was available in all areas and the speed was steady and enough for our 7 -8 devices. If you are travelling around the area then I would recommend a hire car as this would save on taxis. Arranging a transfer from the airport cost us 75 EUR each way via taxi (7 seater) so this was slightly more than expected. The local supermarket (Apolonia) is the equivalent of UK Waitrose so prices are more expensive here than you would find in Lidl/Aldi which are a little farther away. Overall, we had a nice holiday, the kids enjoyed the time at the villa with the pool and play rooms as did the adults. The booking process was easy, and our arrival/departure process was laid out clearly so we had no issues. Highly recommended

Fabulous!

5 of 5
We were a group of 3 couples and 3 babies. This villa was ideal; spacious, modern, clean with comfortable sitting and dining area for our nights in, we cooked and got a few take aways. It was great to have a heated pool for the babies. The location is perfect for a relaxing holiday, a lovely restaurant nearby, O'Marinheiros, and the beach is a 5 min walk away with a lovely beach bar that looks over the sea. There are a few places to eat nearby too, and albuferia is a 10 min ride in a taxi. Had a great time, would definitely recommend!
