Hosted by LindaAsk a question
I live in England and divide my time between the UK and Portugal. The Algarve has always held a special place in my heart and the family has spent many a happy time over the years there. Whatever part of the family wether it be younger or older relatives we all just love the place, the location and the friendly Portuguese people, who dont even mind my pathetic attempts to speak with them in their own language at least my sun tan can hide my embarrassment! From 2013 season we are including little extras, things such as beach towels mainy due to Flight companies being so hot on baggage allowance, and even Easter eggs with Easter bookings too. We have a lot of safety extras for children available, even special pool packs which include blow up arm chairs, lovely on a hot summer day.
Linda purchased this villa in 1999
Why Linda chose Sesmarias
We decided to try self catering instead of hotels and stayed in apartments then later feeling a little more adventurous decided to test the water so to speak and rent a villa with pool (sorry about the pun)! We loved holidays in villas and after staying in a number of different locations found the perfect villa and location. Whilst renting we often discussed what little extras and facilities would our villa offer to clients and later when given the chance to purchase our dream started to put the process into action. Lots of work later the villa is lovely, but it still manages to keep the character and beauty I originally fell in love with. The area is second to none close to amenities, but set in its own grounds giving the best of both worlds to clients, families and our friends.
What makes this villa unique
The property benefits from the best of both worlds, superb views, peaceful surroundings, - but close to all amenities, beach coves, restaurants, bars and mini markets, supermarkets, of unique build not as one of so many cloned villas on a complex. Ideal and ready for clients to enjoy a memorable holiday whether enjoying water sports, or golf, or night life or just relaxing by the large swimming pool, enjoying super views. We have two little vans that visit each morning supplying catch of the day fish at remarkably low prices you can even sample, and a bread van, it is just so Portuguese and we always feel tons better and totally stress free after a visit to our little corner of paradise. The best of both worlds and a lot more on your doorstep, not to mention superb wines!!!!
