About this location

The Algarve region

Geographically located central to the Algarve near the picturesque fishing village of Olhos d'Agua. A small friendly fishing village where you can still see to the local fishermen hauling in the day's catch on the beach - but after dark, it puts on its tourist hat. It doesn't go party crazy like Albufeira, about 5 minutes' drive away, but the clutch of restaurants and bars here aren't quite as sleepy as they make out. Olhos d'Agua offers many great traditional restaurants, bars and small boutiques.

The local beach has soft golden sand and shallow waters that are good for little paddlers. framed by golden cliffs There are also plenty of little rock pools to explore. The ocean, in every shade of blue and mostly calm and warm, invites you for long swims and to indulge in water sports.

A couple of large supermarkets are to be found in Olhos d'Agua as well as Pine Cliffs, a stunning 9-hole golf course with its challenging 9th hole, called the Devil's parlour.

Villa Moura, only a 15 minute drive away offers 9 x 18-hole golf courses.

We have just returned from a 2 week holiday at Villa Sereia. A large family group of 11, ages ranging from 63 to 1, the villa was perfect for all of us. Right from the start, the booking went smoothly and communication with Birgit was always promptly answered.
The villa on arrival was beautifully clean and arriving earlier wasn't a problem. The outside area was excellent and the covered eating area was used every day.
The villa itself was ideal for larger groups or 3 families (as we were). The large kitchen was great for preparing meals all together. The english sockets were very useful!
This is definitely home from home. We were well looked after during our stay by Artur and Margarida.
Having been to the Algarve for a fair few years, this has to be one of the better villas we have stayed in.
Thank you Birgit, Jose, Artur and Margarida for a wonderful stay at Villa Sereia.

Thank you for posting such a wonderful review! We hope to welcome you back in the near future. Jose & Birgit

"Fantastic villa"

We have just stayed in villa sereia for 14 nights - there were 9 including a 5 and a 7 Year old. Each family had their own area in the villa - one family upstairs, one downstairs then the grandparents… More

Thank you for your review. We are very happy to hear you had a great stay in villa Sereia and made good use of the spaces available. We look forward to welcoming you again.

"A villa that we would be more than happy to return to"

Having a large family party of 16, ranging in ages from 2 to 70 we have always struggled to find a villa within the Albufeira area that meets our needs and have had to make compromises to find suitable accommodation. Villa Sereia met and exceeded all our expectations and is by far the best villa we have stayed in. On future visits to the area, we have all agreed that we would not need to search any further and it would be a pleasure to return for a second time.
The villa and grounds were spotless and more than adequately equipped
Both the owners and the ladies in the resort were very professional and extremely helpful.

Hi, thank you very much for taking the time of writing your wonderful review :-) It is always welcoming to hear appreciative words. Thank you for choosing Villa Sereia and look forward to welcoming you in the near future

"Beware deposit keepers"

As a couple of previouse reviews we found the villa lacking in not been cleaned properly , ie draws dirty food left in fridges , towels , old and worn , cob webs Brocken lights , sun beds , CRACKED si… More

NOT A REVIEW this is sour grapes.

May 29th. We emailed (and have copies of all email exchanges) as we always do on our guests' return, to welcome them back and to get feedback regarding their holiday. We also explained that we would withhold their deposit because of damage done during their stay to the bathroom basin which meant the basin and oak unit needed to be replaced. The cost of replacing the bathroom basin and unit and plumber's call out and labour fees exceeded the breakage deposit.

June 2nd Their email response was “Hi, just to let you know that we had a fab holiday in your lovely villa, thank you so much”

June 13th We reminded them of our email of the 29th May as they did not respond to our email and mentioned again that we are withholding their breakage deposit due to the damage to the bathroom basin.

June 13th Client's reply: “The basin was never used”

June 13th Our reply: “It seems odd that the downstairs basin does not get used during an entire stay with toilet facilities inside these rooms.”

June 13th Client's reply: “The sink was cracked and pointed out to the lady” (Margarida)

August 12th. We received a phone call from a member of the group we have not spoken to before asking when they would receive their deposit. We again explained that the bathroom basin had been damaged and to her surprise she did not have any knowledge of a broken bathroom basin, she had been told by the group leader that it was the kitchen sink that was claimed to be damaged.

We have worked with Margarida (our rep) for over 20 years and have no reason to doubt or disbelieve her. Our rep confirmed the basin was not damaged prior to the client's arrival and no mention was ever made to our rep with reference to a cracked bathroom basin.

There are many inconsistencies in the client's emails and correspondences. Starting off by originally saying “what a lovely holiday they had in our fab villa” and in their review they listed items taken from a previous review a year ago, which were issues resolved and dealt with, to claiming to have never used the basin to then changing it to saying they reported the crack.

We received a letter recently from a member of the group, black mailing / threatening us:

“let's resolve this matter before it gets out of hand and we start putting these comments on your website, which we all are aware can be very damaging”
It would have been cheaper to have returned the client's deposit then to have this unjust review on Tripadvisor, however, out of principal we will not give in to blackmail and the whole purpose of the breakage deposit is to safeguard our property. In 27 years of trading we have only withheld security deposits on 2 occasions. 1 x stag group who caused a great deal of damage to the property and 2 on this occasion.

We hope future guests can see from our many excellent reviews including one prior and after these guests that the material written in their review is untrue and totally sour grapes from their prospective.
We have always and will continue to strive in providing our guests a memorable and positive stay in Villa Sereia.

"Lovely villa, great service"

Staying at villa Sereia was a wonderful experience. The bedrooms are spacious and comfortable and there is a huge amount of living space so even at full capacity it never feels crowded. We spent most of our time in the outside area- the pool, pizza oven and sunshine are a winning combo. Not only were the facilities fantastic, there was a really efficient service and any requests were very quickly dealt with. I would recommend staying here for a really relaxing and enjoyable holiday.

Thank you for choosing Villa Sereia and for your great feedback. We look forward to welcoming you again in the near future.

Myself and a few girlfriends booked the villa for a few days as a short break. I wish we didn't have to leave! The villa was spotlessly clean, with so much room, yet still felt homely. It's equipped with everything you could possibly need, from towels to sun loungers, bottle openers, microwave etc. The villa is absolutely gorgeous and the bedrooms have beautiful decor, it really is staying in luxury. It's only a very short cab ride to the strip or it's lovely enough to stay in, get the BBQ on and bring in some jugs of sangria. Couldn't recommend it enough.

Thank you for taking the time to write a review and very happy to hear you had an amazing stay in Villa Sereia :-)

"First class accommodation, amenities and service"

Fourteen members of our family stayed at the villa with an age range of 6 to 77 and we had the most fabulous time. The villa is spacious and comfortable, the pool is a decent size and the play station, pool table and table tennis were all used daily. One of the best features is the outdoor pizza oven and BBQ. We cooked on it daily and some of our best efforts were amazing home made pizza's, delicious bbq's and we even cooked a large joint of pork slowly for over 10 was delicious!
It is worth paying extra for the pool to be heated as its heated to a really comfortable temperature.
You will need a car if you stay at the villa for supermarket shopping and the village of Olhos de Agua is also a little gem. Vilamoura and Albeferia are easy to drive to.
There is also a nice little restaurant across the road.

Thank you so much for taking the time to submit a review. We are happy to hear you and your family had a great time and enjoyed Villa Sereia's facilities. Hope to welcome you again in the near future. Jose & Birgit

"Amazing Time at Villa Sereia"

Having just returned from a fabulous trip to Villa Sereia I can't recommend this villa enough. The villa is slightly out of the main strip, and costs around €8 to get into the centre of Albufeira, taxis are easy to get as well. The villa itself has a really beautiful pool area and everything you could need from a villa, Birgit and Jose the owners were so quick to sort out minor issues mostly within an hour which is incredible. I would not hesitate in recommending this villa and would strongly advise you to book.

Response to review:
Many thanks for your kind comments. We try hard to make the villa as comfortable and homely as possible. We are constantly looking at ways to improve the experience for our guests and each year carry out renovation/improvement works. We hope to see you return to Villa Sereia in the future

"Excellent villa with everything you need"

We travelled as a group of friends but could easily see this villa accommodating families. Despite there being 7 of us we had a bedroom each with nobody being allocated a small room. It was really cle… More

Thank you for choosing Villa Sereia! We are happy that you had a great time in the Villa. Villa Sereia is ideally situated in a quiet location away from the hussle and bustle but close enough if you want to go into town. We look forward to welcoming you again in the near future. Jose & Birgit

"Great holiday and fantastic Villa"

Really enjoyed our trip which was a late booking. Joe could not be more helpful with all the arrangements which made it very easy for us. He even called during the stay to make sure everything was ok.… More

Thank you for your wonderful review, Hope to welcome you again in the near future.
