Our beautiful high quality property is located in Sesmarias, 3km west of Albufeira, in lovely semi rural countryside, within easy walking distance, only 400 metres, to the beach at Praia do Coelho (Rabbit Beach). The popular beaches of Gale, Sao Rafael, Evaristo, Castelo, and Sao Lourenco,, some of the best beaches in Portugal, are also within 2/3 minutes drive.
For those not familiar with the Algarve or Albufeira, the area to the west of this popular resort is considered the best places to stay by seasoned visitors. You will find at least eight beautiful sandy beaches and coves within just a few minutes of our small selection of villas, most with beach bars and restaurants. There are several well stocked supermarkets and a huge selection of good restaurants to choose from. Although close to the Algarve’s most popular resort Albufeira, we find most of our guests only pay the odd visit into Albufeira, preferring the beauty and peace and quite of the area around our villas, and its fabulous beaches. If you want more information on the area, please contact us.
Within easy walking distance are several restaurants and bars, a small shop for day to day essentials, and a supermarket. There are other larger supermarkets with two minutes drive.
