Beautiful Villa With Private Pool And Gardens Overlooking Marina



Updated: 22-Aug-2016
Villa in Sesmarias, Albufeira, Central Algarve - Great Location, Close To Beaches, Restaurants, Bars And Nightlife

Set on 3 levels the villa Casa Verde provides an extremely spacious and comfortable environment ideally suited to 2 families or groups of friends who want to be near enough to all facilities yet be able to relax in style. In a prime location just 2km west of Albufeira which has become one of the most popular resorts in the Algarve, the well appointed villa enjoys panoramic views across the valley to the sea and marina. Private entrance and driveway, the gardens are well stocked with lawn, shrubs, plants, palm trees and flowers. The villa is large and allows each guest space and comfort to relax and enjoy a glass of wine on one of the terraces, by the pool, or around the barbecue. For the more energetic why not enjoy a game of table tennis. The golden sandy beach at Sao Rafael is a 10 minute stroll away, with bars, restaurants, and a super market within easy walking distance. Nearby Albufeira has an abundance of bars, restaurants, and clubs for all tastes and pockets.

Beautiful villa in a great location. Had a really relaxing stay and the kids loved the pool! Jenny Handley - July 2012.

Just returned and wanted to thank you for arranging the cake and champagne for my wife's 40th. It was a great surprise for her and made our stay very special. You have a wonderful villa and we will be recommending it to all our friends. Bob and Tina Buckley - June 2012.

Just a quick note to say thank you very much for the opportunity to stay at your fabulous villa. We couldn't believe how gorgeous it was! Everything we needed was available. Tracy the villa manager was very helpful and such a great location, one of my favourite holidays abroad by far!

Lovely Villa, beautiful views

  • 5 of 5

As we pulled up to the gates of this villa we knew we had made a good decision. The pictures sell the villa well, and I can absolutely assure you that it looks even better in real life than in the photos.

The outside pool area is lovely and the views enhance the holiday experience even further. Location wise you can't go wrong- if you want to be close to Albufeira. The beach is a 10 min stroll away or 1 minute by car and let me tell you, Sao Rafael beach is a beauty. Really nice views and the beach is very clean with golden sands.

The villa had everything we needed and was very well maintained and equipped, both internally and the outside gardens/plants/pool etc. We made very good use of the outside BBQ which is great for cooking and eating outside.

I would highly recommend you hire a car as it just gives you so much flexibility of where you can go and what you can do. The owners made sure we had all the necessary information before arrival and provided any information we needed to ensure we had a comfortable and enjoyable time in the Algarve. I honestly can't fault the property. The only thing I could suggest is adding Wi-Fi to the list of features, which I was told is being looked in to for the future.

Overall a great property and me and my friends had a great and we were all satisfied. My house in the UK feels small now and it's hard not living the villa life.

Activity and Interests


The nearest beaches to the villa are at Sao Rafael which is only a short 10 minute stroll over the headland, or by car a few minutes. There is ample parking space. There are 2 beaches both with bar/restaurant facilities serving excellent food. A cool drink watching the sun go down is highly recommended. Even in summer, remains free of the crowds that fill more popular nearby beaches. For those who enjoy walking there are some beautiful cliff top walks and coves to explore along the coastline.


Although we would recommend car hire to fully appreciate your holiday in the Algarve many guests prefer not to. We can arrange airport transfer to the villa, a journey of about 35 minutes. We use a very friendly local hire firm for the airport transfers and guests usually use them all the time during their stay for trips or the short taxi ride to Albufeira. In addition we are able to offer car hire, with delivery and collection of the vehicles from the villa. Both arrangements work very well.

Further Details:

There are restaurants and bars within walking distance of the villa, as well as a supermarket. The marina, also within walking distance has bars/restaurants and banking facilities. Albufeira just 5 minute drive from the villa has an abundance of shops, restaurants, bars and clubs to cater for all tastes and pockets. Centred around the square, the town comes alive at night providing entertainment until dawn. Once a fishing village it still retains the charm and character of it's Moorish origins. The maze of off cobbled streets are filled with inexpensive restaurants serving traditional meals and delicious fresh seafood.

There are many activities within easy reach. You will be visited by our English rep on the day after your arrival who will be available to give you all the information you require. There are a number of waterslide parks in the area and why not swim with the dolphins at Zoomarine? Fancy challenging your family to a game of crazy golf? Then you Krazy world is the place to go. Jeep safaris are also great fun for all the family and allow you to experience the beautiful countryside. Would you prefer to learn alittle about the history of the Algarve? You can by visiting Sives Castle.

Information including details of interest, trips, emergency and medical contact numbers are inside the villa. A complimentary welcome pack containing just a few essentials will be waiting on your arrival. For those guests who have a special occasion to celebrate ie birthdays or an anniversary, we are able to arrange a special surprise cake with champagne, party balloons etc.
