Villa in Vale de Parra / Sao Raphael, Albufeira, Portugal - Can Be Rented As 4 Or 5 Bedroom Villa, Hire Car Not Essential, Sea Views Roof Terrace

Cantinho Oliveiras, our beautiful holiday home can be rented as a 4 or 5 bedroom villa for up to 10 people. Pool heating to 25 degrees is included in the rental price. The rental prices shown are for 4 bedrooms, and the fifth bedroom costs an extra £150 per week.

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.

The attractive heated swimming pool is heated to 25 degrees (heating up to 30 degrees is £140 per week), tiled in light grey and white tiles, is 10m x 5m and has just one depth of 1.4m.

The garden is on one level with terraces, lawns and a big covered barbecue and dining area next to the pool and house. The garden will be a major feature of the villa with lots of local stonework and a beautiful running water feature with waterfall down a stone wall in an enclosed grotto.

A bus service into Albufeira, and to Gale beach runs from nearby, making this villa suitable for non-drivers.

The superior accommodation consists of:

Spacious entrance hall leading to the sitting room with two large glass sliding doors overlooking the swimming pool and terrace. There is an attractive wood burning fire behind a lifting glass panel for early and late season use. Flat screen satellite TV with BBC & ITV programmes.

The kitchen is fitted with fabulous gloss black units, a very attractive feature, and has an oven, hob, microwave, dishwasher, large American fridge / freezer, and a hatch to the dining room. The washing machine is outside in the barbecue house.

Guestbook comments from the owner

Andrew & Paul,

Just a quick line to thank you and all involved in making our recent stay in your villa a most enjoyable and memorable one. The villa, its location and its specification not only met my expectation but exceeded it. The villa manager was very helpful and informative. The cleaning of both the villa and the pool was excellent and unobtrusive.

Your administration in the booking and the information packs was also excellent.

Whilst we are not planning to holiday in Europe next year I will certainly keep your address and contacts on file for future reference.

Kind regards Ian Dixon



This villa certainly has he WOW factor, we couldn't believe it when we arrived.

The pool and garden were exceptional, and the bathrooms so beautiful.

Thank you for a really great holiday.

Top Class Villa

  • 5 of 5

The pictures of this villa do not do it justice. This place is outstanding. We had 5 adults and 5 children and has so much space. We couldn't fault anything. It had everything you could need and more. Beautifully kept garden and bbq area. So safe for children (which was a big thing for us) the housekeeper who was so lovely and arrived second day with fresh towels and gave the house a tidy. The location is just a few minutes drive away from everything yet you still get to enjoy a peaceful rural area. I would highly recommend this place. We will definitely be back next year.

Amazing place

  • 5 of 5

This is now our third time staying in this beautiful villa and we never get tired of coming here. The villa is truly amazing with everything you could possibly need. It is immaculately clean with very well kept gardens. The pool is also fantastic and heated with its own motorised cover to keep the heat in when not in use. The location also is excellent away from the hussle and bussel but close enough to restaurants, bars and beeches. We will definitely be back again in the future as we truly love it here.

Absolutely impressive 5 star villa

  • 5 of 5

The pictures cannot show how perfect this villa was. Ten family members had ample room with each room having it's own en suite. On arrival everywhere was immaculate. The pool, large grounds and BBQ area were well designed and maintained. Everywhere was cleaned to a very high standard on a regular basis. We wouldn't hesitate to recommend it. In fact we rebooked for next year as soon as we got home.

Superb Villa, made a great family holiday

  • 5 of 5

The Villa was better than advertised with the quality of the facilities much better than we expected. The pool and gardens are great and well maintained, the pool was cold but was still a hit. If we were to go this early in the year again would probably pay the extra for heating the pool. The location is as stated rural, so a car is best but we managed without but walking to the supermarket and back loaded was tough in the heat. The friendly cleaner was great and so helpful when a local power surge knocked out the water pumps, within an hour all was back. The barbecue was great and was used a couple of times which made a change from venturing out locally. The nearby restaurants we found Marineiros excellent and well worth the extra hit on the budget but book as it's popular. The Amigo's tapas was also great and good value and staff really helpful. Would suggest giving the Marina a miss as we found it over priced and poor quality food and service. A trip to the Old Town was great for a night out with lots of choice of bars and restaurants with good food and service, Flavours restaurant was excellent, with good cocktails.

Overall would definitely recommend the Villa and hope to return in the future.

Owner's Response: Dear Guest Thank you for your review, and we are pleased that you enjoyed your holiday, and that our villa exceeded you expectations. The pool is heated to 25 degrees and is covered overnight, but as you know, you can pay extra to take it up towards 30 degrees. The O'Marinheiro restaurant has always been excellent and we have been regulars there for the past 20 years. We have taken note of Amigo's Tapas and Flavours restaurant. We look forward to hearing from you again soon. Best regards Andrew
