About Mark Newton

We are a busy family with 3 children, growing up fast with lots of extended family who often keep coming with us to join in with the fun we have on holiday. Our holidays are filled with lovely sunny days, either spent by the pool, at the beach or on some adventure somewhere! Many a trip has been made to Zoomarine, the many water parks, family walks along the cliffs, dolphin watching on a boat ride from the Marina or just a visit to a local area in the Algarve. We often visit local restaurants which offer top quality food and ambience at really good value prices. We have had lovely evenings spent at the beach restaurants or in the Villa have some great BBQs.

Why Mark Newton chose Sesmarias

The Previous owners of this beautiful Villa arrived in the area back in May 1986, they travelled to Portugal with a view to buying land to build a property. After having seen and rejected several plots in other parts of the Algarve they arrived at Sesmarias one sunny afternoon. A short stroll to the beach 5 minutes away confirmed that it was just what they had been looking for. Twelve plots were available but none had been sold so they were able to pick the best. The next day they paid a deposit and signed contracts confident that they had bought land in one of the most attractive areas of the Algarve and uniquely close to the sea.They then hired a local architect to design the villa. After planning permission had been obtained we held a beauty parade of builders with the contract going to Vitor Martins who runs the estate agency in Albufeira.

What makes this villa unique

Very few villas on the Algarve are so well placed as this villia. Although the area is quiet and unspoilt all amenities are within easy walking distance including mini markets for shopping, several restaurants and, of course, the beach bar. Louis and his family will will make any visitors to the beach bar warmly welcome. In addition to drinks they also serve excellent quality food (fish fresh each day) with views than can only be described as stunning. The villa is our second home and is maintained in first class condition regardless of cost.

First time in the algarve and we had an amazing holiday. This villa is truly stunning. Pool is brilliant, we paid extra for it to be heated and it was definitely worth it as our children used all day every day. You can tell the owners use for themselves as everything is cared for, new kitchen with everything you’d ever need and super comfy beds. Isobel the cleaning lady that comes in daily was great and Tracey the manager checked all was fine with us so we felt very welcome.

Close to small supermarket and beach and to an amazing restaurant O marinheira, so good we went twice!

Marks email communication was extremely prompt.

I have nothing negative to say at all, I’m only sad we had to leave!

Lovely villa - everything we needed was available.

Spacious and very clean. Cleaner called in daily.

Only negative comment was that nothing was nearby and we should have hired a car - however local taxi driver was amazing and happy to take us wherever we wanted to go at short notice.

Lovely restaurants nearby and amazing service.

Would definitely recommend and would love to go back when it is warm enough to use that lovely swimming pool.

  • 5 of 5

Right from when we arrived we noticed how the pictures don't do the villa justice, it's just superb !! Tracey (villa manager) and Isobel (maid) were helpful and lovely. The position of the property is second to none and a perfect fit for 6 adults. Restaurants, Bars , beaches and countryside all nearby. Albufeira is 15 mins away in the car for shopping etc.. hoping to come back next May and will book Casa Jakatina if it isn't already taken. Highly highly recommended !!! Thanks to Mark and family for letting us share their villa..

Praia do Coelha
Car: not necessary


The local beach, Praia da Coelha, is absolutely beautiful being relatively small and surrounded by cliffs and interesting rock formations. The cliffs themselves are unspoilt and you can go for short or long walks to other local beaches and beach bars in both directions.

Coelha beach has its own small beach bar run by Joachim and his son Louis. The meals are simple but tasty with Joachim buying fresh from the local market every morning.


The nearest airport is Faro, about 35mins drive. It is a very easy drive mainly on motorway and full directions are provided. Details of recommended car hire are available on request.

If you prefer we can arrange airport transfer to and from the villa at around €40 each way.


The villa is in a quiet location although there are minimarkets within very easy walking distance. There are also several excellent restaurants within walking/staggering distance and a map of these with recommendations and telephone numbers are provided.

Albufeira is about 3km away and is walkable if you are a keen hiker and you can always get a bus or taxi back to the villa.

Essentially the villa is so well positioned that a car is not essential.

Further Details:

There is a very upmarket Swiss development to the right front of the villa called Hapimag. Hapimag has a shop with a delicatessen which also sells British newspapers. There is also a hole in the wall. You are welcome to use the restaurant which often has special evenings with entertainment. Quality is excellent. Hapimag has two tennis courts, which you can see from the villa and the courts plus all the necessary equipment are available to hire from reception.

Normally the day after arrival clients will be visited by our local agent, Tracey Westacott. She will answer any questions you have to raise and will act as an emergency contact if required. There is a folder in the villa giving details of local english speaking doctors, clinics etc.
