A sunny and welcoming family villa in Sesmarias, just west of Albufeira old town. Villa Salao Sapo is very close to the Castelo beach – a gorgeous sandy beach in a cove backed by sandstone cliffs, with dramatic rock formations in the sea, and with a beach bar and restaurant. Albufeira itself and the marina are just a short drive away.
Inside, the house is spacious and relaxing. The lounge and dining room and all the bedrooms are air-conditioned. On the ground floor there's a very large and comfortable lounge and dining room with sofas, digital satellite tv with UK channels, and a dining table and chairs. The kitchen is a long and well-planned room with doors out onto a terrace, and appliances including a dishwasher, a washing machine and a microwave.
There are three pretty and airy bedrooms - with room for an extra bed for a 7th person for £75 per week. Two lovely twin rooms are on the ground floor. And there's a family shower bathroom with a walk-in shower on this floor too. Up on the first floor there's a double bedroom suite with a king-size bed, a sofa, an en-suite shower room again with a large walk-in shower, and a large balcony.
The garden is a great space with a long curved pool which can be heated, a poolside shower, sun-terraces, a lawn and a barbecue. It's very private behind walls, trees and palms.
Villa Salao Sapo is a great holiday house near Castelo beach - one of the loveliest in this part of the Algarve. A whole string of more Blue Flag beaches are a short drive up and down the coast. Albufeira itself is just a few minutes away by car - with more great beaches and water sports, a historic old town, shops, waterfront cafés and restaurants, bars and clubs. And there are more local restaurants and bars within easy walking distance of the villa too.
