Overview

About the property

3 bedroom villa, sleeps 6. Free wi-fi a/c. Pool heat available at supplement.

Villa Sesmarias is a new townhouse-style villa, which has been very tastefully finished to a very high standard, situated at the head of a quiet cul-de-sac in the residential Sesmarias area of Albufeira. The owners have decorated the villa in a luxurious yet very homely style - with cool modern furniture, 5-star-hotel-style bathrooms, a flatscreen TV in each room and a complimentary PS3.

Tucked away in a quiet development close to Sao Rafael and Galé, Villa Sesmarias stands on the end plot of a small row of brand-new villas. The villa was only recently completed as a holiday home for its owners, and that is clear from the standard of the decor and furniture that they have chosen to create a very comfortable and stylish home-from-home.

The front door leads into the large open-plan lounge, dining room and kitchen which is separated by a breakfast bar. In the lounge area there are two large leather sofas, a large flatscreen TV with UK satellite and a PS3, plus a modern feature fireplace. There's a beautiful marble dining table and chairs and patio doors which lead to the dining terrace, garden and pool. There is also a wc cloakroom off the lounge. The practical kitchen area has cream coloured units with integrated modern chrome appliances including a large fridge-freezer and a dishwasher.

All the bedrooms are upstairs on the first floor - there are two doubles and one twin. The master double bedroom has an en-suite bathroom with a bath and shower, a wall mounted flatscreen TV and access to a large balcony. The second double has an en-suite shower bathroom and a flatscreen TV. The twin bedroom has a balcony, flatscreen TV and can have sole use of the separate house bathroom which has a bath and shower.

Outside, there is an enclosed private terraced garden with a brick barbecue, covered dining terrace with beautiful dining furniture, and the large pool which can be heated on request for a supplement.

Villa Sesmarias is a modern, stylish and practical villa in a quiet yet handy location - a stroll for the energetic, or a short drive for the rest of us, to restaurants and beaches and a short drive to the old town and marina of Albufeira.

Guestbook comments from the manager

We booked this house for a party of 4 adults and one almost 3 year old. It is in a very quiet residential area with easy parking outside should you need it. (We didn't hire a car) There are 3 double bedrooms, 2 ensuite, and there is another bathroom as well. The house was spotlessly clean, and very well equipped, the kitchen particularly so. There is wifi, a dvd with selection of dvds to watch as well as books etc. There isn't a lot you need to take with you for entertainment. About 5 minutes walk away across the land to the side of the house, there is a small mini market. (Turn left when you reach the road.) It stocks a small amount of essentials but it's much cheaper to shop further afield. There are a couple of bars along that road too, along with a chinese take away and also a pizza take away further down the road near a hotel. There is a lovely small beach a 10-15 minute walk downhill. My husband and I walked from there into Albufeira which was probably a 40 minute walk along the coast across tracks and up and down hills. From the house itself it is a 15 minute walk (downhill and virtually straight but some of it off road) to the marina where there are a selection of restaurants and a Spar supermarket. Many of the boat experiences depart from this point too. To walk into Albufeira and the beach there takes 30-35 minutes from the house. We found the taxi's to be very reasonable and were happy to use these on the return journey since the house is up a steep climb just as you get close to it and although we did it on several occasions, if you've had a long day at the beach and it's hot, which it was, a taxi ride is very welcome. The pool at the villa is great. There are many pool toys which our granddaughter enjoyed (and we did too) which are kept in a store room outside, along with the washing machine. We paid for the pool to be heated. The air temperatures were at least 26 and probably closer to 30 at times but without the pool we probably wouldn't have used it at all. When we got there it was cold but by Tuesday it was better and after that it had reached its full temperature and was bliss. We spent many hours in it playing with the little one, who also loved it. The house manager, Carmo, is incredibly helpful and made organising trips very easy indeed. We had a thoroughly enjoyable stay at this house and would definitely recommend it to others without hesitation. Perfect Villa Escapes were a very good company to book with.

Brilliant facilities, high quality house

  • 5 of 5

The house was spotlessly clean and had everything you could think of for a great self catering holiday. It is situated in a quiet residential area which is a 10-15 minute walk from the marina and 10 minutes from a local beach. You can walk to Albufeira beach in 35 minutes. Taxis back from the town are cheap.

The swimming pool got lots of use and is well equipped with water toys to keep everyone happy.

We had a great holiday at this house and would love to go back to it one day.

A perfect home from home....with sunshine!

  • 5 of 5

The description of this villa said that the owners had tried to create the perfect home from home, and they weren't wrong. We travelled to the villa with two teenagers and Grandma. It was incredibly clean with a cleaning and bed changing service twice weekly. The kitchen was perfectly equipped with everything we needed....not that we ate in much! Having said that, the outside barbecue was a delight which saw several fresh fish cooked to perfection. The pool is a great size and cleaned frequently. There were a huge amount of inflatables available for both kids and adults to use, along with a sun shade (and towels) for the beach, and some bats, games etc. The bedrooms were a great size with a television in each (again, unused....as was the Playstation in the lounge!). The bathrooms were well equipped with plenty of room and there were lots of hangers available in the wardrobes. There was a safe, a hair dryer, and an alarm. One thing to be aware of is that the villa is at the top of a steep hill. Some evenings were very windy, meaning that the automatic metal shutters at the windows rattled quite a bit. It won't worry the heavy sleepers amongst you, but did keep me awake. When the wind died down it was fine. You won't need a car at the villa as it's a 20 minute stroll to the wonderful Arrifes Beach and closer to Sao Rafael. Coehla is a slightly longer walk but well worth a visit. The restaurant Margum Sul is a 5 minute walk away, as is the supermarket/chinese/Tommy's Bar (although the Supermarket is great for odd bits, I wouldn't recommend a full shop as it's quite pricey - a taxi to the nearest Apolonia (15 mins max) would be recommended. I would also recommend the restaurant Praia Grande - maybe a 20 minute walk but well worth it for the seafood. And also Sardinha at Arrifes Beach - a wonderful place to watch the sun set. The management of the villa was very smooth; we were able to enter the villa early while they were still cleaning to leave our luggage following an early flight, and they also arranged car hire and airport transfers on our behalf with great communication. We'd definitely recommend this villa.

Lovely modern townhouse in quiet location.

  • 5 of 5

Villa Sesmerias is a lovely townhouse style villa on the end of a very new looking row of three houses in a quiet cul-de-sac. The villa was beautifully clean on arrival and has marble floors throughout.

The facilities were as described, the bedrooms, two ensuite and one with separate bathroom were a good size.

The kitchen was well equipped and all fitted out to a high standard.

The lounge had a large flat screen TV ,DVD player and PS3 . The TV had the full Sky sports package as well as the standard Sky channels. The wifi worked well throughout our stay.

Outside , the pool was large with sun loungers and umbrellas provided.

Also exterior dining table and sofa were under canopies and in the shade by lunchtime which was great on the hotter days. Pool towels were provided.

Beaches were walkable, the two closest Arrifes and Sao Rafael were about ten minutes walk, the next two further west were around 15-20 minutes and Gale beach we drove to as it was too far to walk. The first four beaches were small cove beaches each with a beach bar, Gale was a huge long beach with several beach bars.

There are a couple of mini markets within five minutes for basics, a medium sized one (Oceano) around ten to fifteen minutes walk was well stocked and the largest supermarket (Apalonia) was a short drive away near Gale beach.

Several restaurants all within easy walking distance. Highly recommend the beach bar at Sao Rafael beach, great food and friendly staff.Also Margem Sul , 5 mins walk from the villa was very good.

The marina is a 20 minute walk or a short drive with lots of cafes bars etc and jet ski hire ,para sailing ,boat trips, go karting etc.

The villa does sit at the top of a fairly steep hill on the drive in but at the other side is a dirt track across waste ground which is fairly level and we used this path to access the roads to the beaches , restaurants etc.

A lovely villa in a good location. We had hired a car but you could manage without one at Villa Sesmerias as long as you are able to walk short distances.

Recommended.
