About Jose Semedo

Hello, we are Jose & Birgit. We bought this plot of land in 1982 and built the villa over a period of 5 years. We have done yearly extensive renovations and made Villa Sereia a real home away from home spending many years holidaying with our family. Our children have been brought up spending their school holidays here. Now are grandchildren join us every year. We understand the importance of family quality time whilst on holiday and endeavour to provide the best possible surroundings and facilities to ensure you have a relaxing and carefree holiday.

Why Jose Semedo chose Albufeira

Villa Sereia is ideally located in a quiet residential area but also close to the best nightlife in the Algarve, Albufeira Old Town and Montchoro The Strip

Villa Sereia is situated on a large fully detached plot in a residential resort, walking distance to 2 restaurants and local shops. It proudly boasts four large palm trees that provide great shade for young children to play and shelter from the strong midday sun or to sleep away that great piri-piri BBQ and a couple of bottles of cold beer laying on a cool stretch of grass. Or why not try cooking a pizza or a roast in our outdoor pizza oven. If your feeling energetic then try the outside table tennis which is great fun for all ages. The game is played with wooden rackets and tennis balls (rackets provided). The rules of table tennis can apply. The L shape swimming pool is an entertaining centre all on its own. It has a diving board with a 3.5 m depth leading up to a shallow end of 0.75m. The L shape starts at 0.75m to 0.4m making this part perfect for very young children or not so confident swimmers.

Villa Sereia,luxury 7 bedroom,5 bath,large pool

  • 5 of 5

We choose this location and villa for a special joint birthday celebration for all the family and close friends,we needed space and a variety in activities..the villa offered all this.The villa had plenty of room with home luxuries,was kept very clean and offered modern facilities which added to a very enjoyable stay...Albuferia old and new offered something for everyone, we enjoyed the old town with its old square and live music with great resturants whilst our younger adults enjoyed the clubs and music of the new town..The beach was very nice and clean without being to commerialised.

The Villa is ideal for large groups as we found with 13 of us staying,we would recommend to others and will probably use again ourselves..Price was very reasonable and booking was made easy by Jose as well as transfers and car hire that again was sorted out for us..

The only down side to the villa location was that you did need car hire as not many bars or shops within walking distance.

A very enjoyable holiday for all of us.

Beautiful villa - perfect holiday

  • 5 of 5

We stayed at Villa Sereia as a party of 3 families, 11 people ranging from 63 to 1! We have visited the Algarve many times, and this has to be one of the best villas we have stayed in. The booking process was very easy and Birgit was very helpful and kept us updated regularly via email.

The villa was spotlessly clean on arrival and had plenty of space for everyone. The outside eating area was perfect and provided shade for breakfast and lunch times. The grass area was lovely for the kids to play on (watch for the ants!)

The bedrooms were lovely (the family room was by far the coolest bedroom!) and the balcony upstairs is another lovely addition.

We had a perfect holiday here. Artur and Margarida, the English speaking reps were very helpful too.

All in all, a lovely villa which we hope to return to one day. Thank you Birgit, Jose, Artur and Margarida!

Fantastic villa, great service

  • 5 of 5

Staying at villa Sereia was a wonderful experience. The bedrooms are spacious and comfortable and there is a huge amount of living space so even at full capacity it never feels crowded. We spent most of our time in the outside area- the pool, pizza oven and sunshine are a winning combo. Not only were the facilities fantastic, there was a really efficient service and any requests were very quickly dealt with. I would recommend staying here for a really relaxing and enjoyable holiday.

Birgit and Jose were so helpful and kept in great communication for planning our mini break.

14 girls including mums and grans had a super time, beautiful villa with large pool and the rooms and bathrooms were immaculate! So clean and so spacious! They had thought of everything! We used taxis to get to the shops, beach and restaurants and nightlife but these were cheap. The only downside was not having the WIFI but know this is coming soon to the villa. Wished we could have stayed longer and will definitely go back! Would recommend over and over!

Beautiful villa with everything you need

  • 5 of 5

I recently spent a long weekend here with close friends, arriving late on the friday. Even late at night the villa is stunning! All the bedrooms are beautiful and I found myself torn between having an en suite or queen size bed!

Jose and Birgit couldnt have been more helpful replying to queries very quickly from where to eat that night to where the iron is...

I went with my two year old daughter and found the garden perfect for her with a good amount of space in shade (she of course loved the pool!).

Overall a 10/10 experience and I cant wait to go again. Perfect for a chilled out weekend in the sun!

Geographically located central to the Algarve. Situated in a quiet residential resort only a 10 minute drive from the main night life of Albufeira Old Town & Montchoro the Strip. 35 Minutes from Faro Airport Villa Sereia is ideally located for the perfect holiday!

Geographically located central to the Algarve near the picturesque fishing village of Olhos d'Agua. A small friendly fishing village where you can still see to the local fishermen hauling in the day's catch on the beach - but after dark, it puts on its tourist hat. It doesn't go party crazy like Albufeira, about 5 minutes' drive away, but the clutch of restaurants and bars here aren't quite as sleepy as they make out. Olhos d'Agua offers many great traditional restaurants, bars and small boutiques.

The local beach has soft golden sand and shallow waters that are good for little paddlers. framed by golden cliffs There are also plenty of little rock pools to explore. The ocean, in every shade of blue and mostly calm and warm, invites you for long swims and to indulge in water sports.

A couple of large supermarkets are to be found in Olhos d'Agua as well as Pine Cliffs, a stunning 9-hole golf course with its challenging 9th hole, called the Devil's parlour.

Villa Moura, only a 15 minute drive away offers 9 x 18-hole golf courses.
