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.

It epitomises home from home, whereby every requirement is catered for. The position of the property is superb with lovely walks along the coastline and secluded beaches tucked away. We went for four days to 'chill out' , exploring everywhere on foot, yet any longer - especially with young children - and a car would be beneficial. The customer service from start to completion was excellent. It was completely 'stress less' which meant we could relax from the minute the holiday was booked.
