About the property

Villa in Sesmarias, Albufeira, Central Algarve - Shared Pool And Gardens Quiet Location, Sea Views

Family friendly villa in a small complex with 9 others. There is a shared pool in the enclosed gardens. Located just off the road that runs between Galé, Sesmarias and Sáo Rafael, the villa is midway between the beaches of Galé and Costelo which can be reached on foot in about fifteen minutes. There are several nice restaurants and bars and a supermarket within an easy walk of the property. Short (10-15 minute) car journeys will take you to Albufeira, the Algarve Shopping mall at Guia (with a large supermarket) and the Zoomarine Park (Dolphins, Sealions etc).

Wonderful stay

  • 5 of 5

Beautiful holiday home with all the amenities inside and out. Three stories with three bedrooms and 2.5 baths. Easily accommodates a large family. Very close to several restaurants and the Apolonia market. Also easy walking distance to at least 8 beautiful beaches.

very nice house, and everything has described on photos, the only disapointed for us, was that the small swimming pool was closed.

Excellent villa, perfect for toddlers!

  • 4 of 5

Excellent villa, well kept and clean. All facilities included. Lots of toys for the kids, a ping-pong table, a large communal swimming pool and a decent back yard. A bit far to the supermarked and the beaches when you have small kids, but no more than 15 min walk. Taxi service was also excellent, especially when you have several kids who need car seats.

Side note: We recommend a restaurant nearby kalled Jompra, easily the best in the area!

Nearest Airport
45 Kilometres
Nearest Beach
1.5 Kilometres
Praia da Galé
Car: recommended


By distance the property is within 500m of the sea. There's no direct access to the beaches though so anticipate a 15 min walk (2 mins by car). There are quite a few excellent beaches in the area including Praia da Galé with its three beach restaurants, water sports and several miles of golden sand and the quieter Costello beach.


From Faro airport, you can normally be at the property in about 45 mins via the A22 Motorway. We would recommend a rental car for your visit although taxi transfers and the proximity of a taxi rank and bus stop mean it isn't strictly required.


It's normally a 10 min drive to Albufeira Old Town or 15 mins to Montechoro/Bullring. A short 10 min drive will get you to either the Algarve Shopping mall at Guia or the Zoomarine attraction.
