Stunning spacious villa with fantastic views
Villa Chris is a credit to it's owners ! Though the pool is quite small for the size of the villa, the other outside space is huge - side patio with table & chairs (ideal for outdoor breakfast), pretty downstairs barbeque area with ample seating (ate most of our meals here), with stunning views looking towards the marina and Albufeira. On this level you also have a large outdoor space at the back of the villa (used by some of us ? for morning exercises) and the 3 & 5 year old boys could run around here safely. All the rooms inside are beautifully decorated and many paintings adorn the walls (painted by the owner I assume). Bedrooms and en suites are well equipped, as is the kitchen - think of any kitchen appliance you might need, and Villa Chris will probably have it ! There is a lower floor which is vast - used currently for a games room and laundry area - an electric garage door opens onto the back patio and barbeque area.
The surrounding area is quiet - if you have mobility issues you may need a car (quite hilly) - we walked to a local beach in 20 minutes and to San Rafael beach in about half an hour. Some evenings we walked to a querky & friendly family bar called the Sunshine Restaurant which is about 20 minutes away, otherwise walking into Albufeira took about 40 minutes. When we did need transport we used a local taxi firm recommended by the Kaiser Management company lady - Theresa - who was a gem - really welcoming and helpful, sorting out queries on the spot or the following day. The taxis were reasonable eg. 9 euros to shop at Lidl or Netto or 11 euros to go to Shopping Algarve where there's many retail shops as well as a Continente supermarket. If we'd been out for the day we caught taxis back to the villa (useful tip - put GPS into your phone as taxi drivers use this for directions). We would all recommend this villa and our party of seven ranged in age from 3 years to 69 years old !
We have just spent a lovely holiday at Villa Chris in Sesmarias , Portugal . The villa is beautiful , very spacious with magnificent views . We love watching the sunset from the large bbq patio . The location is ideal for the marina , several gorgeous beaches and restaraunts . The booking process was easy and Anne at Algarve holiday rentals was very helpful . In resort , the agents , kaiser properties were very good and informative . We will go back again in the future
