I have a long experience in the hotel business, which is a great help on creating in Villa Santos all the conditions to make our guests love the stay in the villa.To reach that goal Villa Santos was recently renovated, modernized and decorated


We particularly wanted a country villa, but not too far from the sea and the town center. Our villa is in a perfect location we can get virtually anywhere within 10 minute ( shopping mall, city center, hospital, beach, sports center and golf ), and we can walk to the beach


We are interested in swapping 1 week in Villa Santos (any available week, except in July and August) with 1 Week in an apartment or house in London (accommodation for 4 persons) from 15 to 22 December.

Guestbook comments from the manager

Just returned home from a couple of beautiful days in villa Santos. As soon as you enter the villa you feel welcome. The villa is great furnished. We have rented a couple of other villas in the Algarve but never found a villa that was so thought after and with contemporary furnishings. Simply loved it. All the appliances in the kitchen worked well and were of a good quality. There is nothing you miss when you are inside OR outside the house. The garden is well maintained and very private. The location of the villa is great. Just everything you want is in near proximity. The owners are doing a great job. They are warm, friendly and welcoming. You really do feel a guest. We would recommend this villa to everybody.

Beautiful villa,peaceful & private.Perfect holiday

  • 5 of 5

We stayed in this beautiful villa, the end of April / beginning of May, it was clean, spacious, very comfortable and so beautifully decorated. Location is perfect, nestled in lovely quiet surroundings yet the Old Town in only 5 minutes in a taxi. Villa is completely private and peaceful. The pool area is very relaxing with lots of pool accessories supplied which was very handy. The pool itself is nice but quite dangerous, it dips very steeply into the deep end and is easy to slip, spent most of the time sitting in the baby pool with my twins (10 months old). There is a swing and a slide there also for older children. The games room is great at night when the babies were in bed, totally sound proof, so we could just bring the monitor in and be as loud as we liked. We really enjoyed the dart board but there were only two proper darts, the rest were plastic, so couldn't really play properly. We didn't make use of the outdoor bbq or stone oven, the week just went too quick, we will definitely use it next time, it's fully equiped. The villa has everything in it you could need, which really makes it feel like a home away from home, plenty of kitchen equipment, bed linen, towels, lots of games, books, dvds etc. The only thing is our bed was uncomfortable and lumpy, we stayed in the downstairs double bed, although one of the guests stayed in the upstairs bedroom and said the bed was very comfortable. The owners Paulo and Cristina were very friendly and helpful, we arrived in on a late flight and Paulo very kindly brought us shopping so we could pick up groceries for the following morning, and even bought us a pizza! They also leave a very handy folder with handy tips and recommendations with maps etc.we found this very useful. Overall I would highly recommend this wonderful villa and we are already planning our next trip and will be bringing more people with us next year!

  • 5 of 5

Ich kann all den bestehenden Bewertungen dieser Villa nur zustimmen.

Wir waren zu dritt für 8 Tage da, es war einfach traumhaft. Solch eine wunderschöne Villa, so toll gelegen, grandioses Klima, und die Vermieter absolut freundlich.

Mit nur drei Erwachsenen hatten wir natürlich Platz ohne Ende.... Wir wechselten sogar mal das Schlafzimmer (vom EG ins OG). Der herrliche Garten mit Pool ist uneinsehbar....

Frühstück im Garten direkt neben dem Pool, traumhaft.

Den Grill konnten wir aus zeitlichen Gründen leider nicht nutzen, aber sicher das nächste mal.

Zwei Häuser neben der Villa ist eine kleine Gaststätte. Die ist bei einer späten Anreise ganz praktisch. Supermärkte hat es in unmittelbarer Nähe einige (Auto empfehlenswert).

Strände gibt es in unmittelbarer Nähe wie Sand am Meer.... einer schöner als der andere.

Bereits die Kommunikation nach der Buchung war sehr gut und zuvorkommend.

Nach der Ankunft erhielten wir vom Vermieter Paulo eine ausgiebige Einweisung und viele Tipps. Er hat einen Ordner zusammengestellt mit vielen nützlichen Infos.

Die "Old Town" in Albufeira war für uns das abendliche Ausflugsziel. Sehr viele schöne Restaurants, Shops, Cocktail-Bars. Einige mit direktem Meerblick.

Die Villa wurde von Paulo und Cristina selbst gebaut und bewohnt, bevor sie zur Vermietung genutzt wurde. Sie wurde mit sehr viel Liebe zum Detail errichtet.

Die Villa kann auf jeden Fall sehr empfohlen werden.

Paulo and Cristina, many thanks for this absolutely nice holiday in your villa.

Truly is a home from home

  • 5 of 5

Thank you for renting out your lovely villa to us. We had a brilliant holiday at Villa Santos, The kids were never out of the pool and the games room was used by kids and adults alike! There were 10 of us in total and the villa was perfectly equipped for the large group, plenty of everything! The location for us was good 20 mins walk to a beach with a few restaurants/bars and shop also within walking distance,I have to mention the Sunshine restaurant which is practically next door. the food is delicious and the staff are very welcoming and cant do enough for you. Less than 10 mins drive into Albufeira even closer to the Marina which is lovely. A great shopping centre and retail park also a 10 min drive away. Z00 Marine which is brilliant is only a short drive also.

I wouldn't hestitate in recommending the villa, the owners were so helpful answering all questions before and again whilst we were there. If i have to mention something that could be improved on it would be the wifi we could only pick up the connection whilst sitting directly next to the router but it really wasnt a big problem.

Thank you again, we hope to see you in the future :) Carly and family.

Great pool, lovely villa

  • 5 of 5

Thank you Paulo and Cristina for making our stay so relaxing. What wonderful hosts - aside from helping us book a taxi from the airport, Paulo even went shopping for us as we arrived so late - that is what makes Villa Santos stand out from the rest.

Lovely big garden, great pool, and great big fridge. Even with 9 of us, the villa still seemed big.

Thank you - we had a brilliant time!

Perfect september 2013 holiday

  • 5 of 5

We've spend our holiday at this beautiful property (September 2013). Its a large villa with plenty of room. A nice and private garden with a swimming pool, activity room and a perfect BBQ. There's a fully equipped kitchen and everything you need is there. The bathrooms are clean and well maintained. Look at the pictures; what you see is what you get.

The garden is beautiful and quiet. The Villa is ideal located and restaurants and beaches are in walking distance.

Our group hired a car to see the surroundings an villages. Albufeira is nearby (5 min.) and there are plenty of supermarkets. 2 smaller in walking distance.

And then there are the owners. Never had such a good hostess! Dear Paulo and Cristina, please keep up the good work en hospitality!

Mr Zanten and friends.

sich wie zuhause fühlen

  • 5 of 5

Wir verbrachten zu fünft (4 Erwachsene& 1Teenager) unsere 2-wöchigen Herbstferien in dieser Villa.

Die Kommunikation mit Familie Santos, den Eigentümern dieser Villa, war bereits seit der ersten Anfrage sehr nett und unkompliziert. Auch der Empfang am Ankunftstag war überaus freundlich.

Die Villa ist recht einfach erreichbar, obwohl wir bei der ersten Anfahrt etwas suchen mussten. Die zentrale Lage in Sesmarias erlaubt einem, in kurzer Zeit die West- sowie auch die Ost-Algarve zu erkunden, das haben wir sehr geschätzt.

Die Villa ist mit allem ausgestattet, was das Herz begehrt. Neben den 4 schönen Zimmern (3 im Erdgeschoss, 1 über Wendeltreppe im Obergeschoss erreichbar) verfügt die Villa über einen schönes und tiefes (ca. 2m) Schwimmbecken. Platzangst oder Engpässe beim Duschen bekommt man in dieser Villa bestimmt nicht, denn im Erdgeschoss stehen 2 und im Obergeschoss nochmal 1 Badezimmer zur Verfügung.

In einem kleinen Nebengebäude befindet sich der Spielraum mit einem Billard-Tisch, einem Tischfussball und einer Dartscheibe. Auch diverse Brettspiele lassen sich im Kästchen des Spielzimmers finden.

Der Gesamteindruck der Villa ist sehr gut. Sie wird sehr gut gepflegt und wirkt sehr sauber. Geschirrspüler, Besteck und entsprechendes Geschirr sind ausreichend vorhanden. Der Garten ist schön angelegt, es gibt auch für die kleinen eine Schaukel und eine kleine Rutsche. (für die Kleinen stehen auch Kinderbetten zur Verfügung).

Die Einrichtung der Villa reicht von modern bis normalem Standard. Im Wohnzimmer befindet sich ein kleines W-LAN-Modem, mit dessen Hilfe sich die wichtigsten E-Mails abrufen lassen etc. Das Potential des Modems (Reichweite und Störke) besitzt allerdings nich Spielraum nach oben.

Wir waren, alles in allem, sehr zufrieden mit dieser Bleibe und können sie problemlos weiterempfehlen.

Nochmals vielen Dank an Christina und Paulo für den herzlichen Empfang sowie eine unkomplizierte und schnelle Abwicklung.

Villa Santos has a peaceful location not far from the Marina.

Situated within walking distance to some of the most beautiful beaches in the Algarve and conveniently located at just a short walk to amenities: two super markets, two mini-markets and a good choice of restaurants and bars.

Sao Rafael beach, the nearest, at a short walk, was considered the 4th best beach in Europe, is fabulous, has bar and restaurant and sun beds to hire.

The Old Town, the famous bustling Albufeira city center, is at 3 km only, five minute by taxi (6 euros)

Attractions; water sports & jet ski on Gale Beach, big game & reef fishing from the Marina, 3 water parks at between 10 to 20 minute drive, Zoo Marine Park (sea life) 10 minute drive, outlet shopping 10 minute drive, Algarve shopping with shops, restaurants, cinemas with English movies and bowling, 10 minute drive.

Activities: Tennis, fishing, sailing, water skiing, swimming, diving, jet skiing, windsurfing, walking, bird watching, Jeep safaris, sea day trip, excursions to local markets, Cliff Richard vineyard tours and much more

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.
