About Cristina Santos
I have a long experience in the hotel, restaurant, bar and building construction business, which is a great help on creating in Villa Santos all the conditions to make our guests love the stay in the villa.
Why Cristina Santos chose Sesmarias
We particularly wanted a country villa, but at the same time not too far from the sea and the town center. Our villa is in a perfect location we can get virtually anywhere within less than 10 minute ( supermarket, shopping mall, restaurants, bars,city center, hospital, sports center and golf ) and we just walk to the beach.

Cancelled bookings will not receive a refund
Overall was better than I expected. I don't usually trust photos and descriptions on booking sites as they are not always truthful. The owner allowed for us to check in 3 hours early, this was very much appreciated as we have a 2 year old child. The owner Paulo met us and was very very helpful and spoke excellent English. The property was better and bigger than what we expected from the photos and description. I would highly recommend a stay at villa Santos and is already on our short list for next year. We were a party of 6 adults and 1 child and had more than enough space and facilities for all. Many thanks Paulo and Cristina.
We were met by Paulo and Cristina who were lovely.
They explained everything for us and a bit about the local area.
The Villa is out of town but Taxis are very reasonable, and some small mini markets for the essentials are nearby.
10-15 minute walk to the beach.
Pool was lovely but we paid extra for it to be heated as we were there at Easter and had small children with us.
All rooms were lovely and airy as was the whole of the Villa.
Separate games room for Darts, Bar Football and Pool.
Great fun watching all the Geckos at dusk.
We loved everything . There was plenty of room for a large group. Close to the beach and great resta
Restaurants. We felt very welcome by locals. A wonderful place for a vacation . We hope to return in a couple of years.
Beautiful Villa, very comfortable and it really felt like a home from home but in the sun!
Cristina (the owner) was super on arrival and accommodated us arriving earlier than the check-in time, she gave us an excellent briefing of the villa and surroundings as well as going through their information pack that contained everything we needed to know and more. We didnt hire a car but probably should have done. The location is great and beaches and shops are within walking distance (approx 20-25 mins) but when shopping for 11 people, carrying the bags in the heat was pretty exhausting, saying that UBER was active in the area and we managed to get around really cheaply that way. Only a 5 min drive from the Marina or 10 min drive to the old town.The villa itself was perfect for us, had everything we wanted/need and the garden enjoyed all day sunshine. The gardens were lovely and the pool was clean, nicely maintained and deep, with a shallow area and paddle pool for younger ones. we used all the amenities including the DVD player, games room and BBQ, wanted to usef the Pizza oven but we werent sure how to fire it up and there was no paddle. The kitchen had everything we needed as did all of the bathrooms. Its not as luxurious on the inside as it looks in the pictures and there were a few bits of the villa that appeared tired but it in no way impacted our stay. It was perfect for us (7 adults and 4 kids 6-11). The Marina is walkable but the road is very dangerous so I would advise against it as the paths arent exactly great. We especially loved Sunshine Restaurant (2 doors away) lovely owners and staff, very quiet restaurant and the food was awesome, went there for breakfast, lunch and dinner over the course of the week.Value for money Villa Santos was absoultely perfect and couldnt fault it one bit, in the whole week we were there, we didnt need to contact Cristina for anything which was a credit to how well informed we were on arrival and how well maintained the villa is. The only downside and this is so petty but worth mentioninng - I would have loved to have used the pizza oven, so I would recommend Cristina to leave some instructions on how to use it, otherwise it was perfect! Thanks Cristina, we had an amazing time and hope to return some day
Fantastic place, clean, large and well situated.
Fantastic stay at this lovely house and compound. The property is so much more beautiful in person than I could’ve expected. A lovely gated drive way in the front with a covered parking spot. A beautiful pool with a small wading pool for kids, outdoor shower and a full game room/pool house with built in barbecue and pizza oven outside. Inside the kitchen was lovely and bedrooms and bathrooms were well placed. The house was set up perfectly for our two families traveling together. One bedroom is completely separate upstairs and then there is a large room with ensuite bathroom and three single beds and two other bedrooms close together with a bathroom between. Our families could be close and still have our own space. Cristina and Paulo were fantastic to work with. Extremely responsive and helpful. We had to change or plans at the last minute and they accommodated every request. We didn’t have any issues at all but they were so close if we needed anything. The house is very close to so many gorgeous beaches and most of what you need is in walking distance or very close with a car. The house is in a quiet neighborhood but still close to everything. Already trying to figure out how soon we can go back!!
Lovely place in lovely location:)
Very well run villa and very helpful owners always answered the phone and helped in any way to make a truely great holiday experience! Would definitely go back without hesitation

Golf -: Excellent choice for Golfers :
The Algarve is a paradise for golfers, offering a choice of 35 beautifully tended golf courses, famous for its spectacular scenery, along with a fabulous coastline. The fantastic Algarvian weather give the possibility of playing golf in winter when northern countries courses are unplayable.
Villa Santos is ideally situated within short drive from many golf courses. The nearest is Salgados Golf course
at (5 km) 5 minute drive from the villa .
Golf courses of Vilamoura, Vale do Lobo and Quinta do Lago are at about 30 minute away to the East .The Courses of Carvoeiro, Penina and Alvor at 30 minute drive to West . The new course of Amendoeira in Silves is at only 15 minute drive.
After a fantastic day playing Golf, the evening in Albufeira is to be lived and remembered. The Old Town is expecting for you with excellent restaurants and bars, and its fantastic night life. The new town , known as The Strip , is also a must, in the Albufeira night and its where discos are situated.
The bars in summer close at 4am, and the discos at 6am, a good time to prepare yourself for another day of golf.
