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. HomeAway has holiday rental homes and villas in Sesmarias available, from a Sesmarias self-catering located near the beach with a fully equipped kitchen to a luxurious Sesmarias villa with a swimming pool and terrific view.

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.

Wonderful location, stunning villa

5 of 5
What an absolutely wonderful villa, we have just returned home after a two week stay and cannot fault the accommodation we were lucky enough to stay in. Our party included myself, my son and daughter in law and their 2 children. The villa was spotlessly clean and had very recently been refurbished to a high and good quality standard, we felt like it was a home from home rather than standard holiday accommodation with minimal resources - coffee machines/ hairdryers/ UK TV, quality beds and the WIFI was greatly appreciated by my son who had to take some work and the children! The garden was beautiful and the swimming pool was wonderful (and warm!), both the pool and gardens were clean and well tendered. Isobel, the housekeeper coming in to make the beds and tidy up also made it feel like we were being really well looked after. The location is absolutely perfect, I cannot walk very far and it was ideal to be able to have a lovely walk to the beach at Coelha, have lunch at the numerous restaurants which were both friendly and served excellent food. It was so easy to buy fresh bread and provisions from the supermarket in Hapimag, there were no busy roads to worry about the children. Really we have had a wonderful holiday and this villa is nothing short of 5 stars. My son tells me the owners were also very efficient in processing our booking with no issues. Thank you very much for the opportunity to stay here.

Such a peaceful corner of the beautiful Algarve

5 of 5
We have stayed here several times, but this time our daughter and boyfriend joined us - thankfully they loved the villa and surrounding area just as much as we do! Telma is a most wonderful host and as she could not meet us on our first day she sent her husband instead - shamefully his English is far better than our Portuguese! The property is quiet, in a good location with supermarkets and restaurants within easy walking distance. Restaurants we recommend are O Marinheiro, Sao Domingos, Jompra and the newly opened Kozhina. For brunch go to Docaria Almeixar, right next door to Sao Domingos (0.66 miles from the villa). This year we have enjoyed watching the goat herder and his goats in the field next door, so therapeutic. We can highly recommend this villa and Telma is such a lovely helpful person - we have already booked next year's trip - feels like our second home :)
