About the property

Awesome 3 Bed Individually Designed Villa With Private Pool And Mature Gardens

Vila Marta is a stunning 3 bed villa of amazing design and proportions. This bespoke villa was designed and built in 2007 to the owner's exact requirements and the attention to build detail is obvious. The villa is completely surrounded by mature foliage, affording guests complete privacy and safety for children wanting to run around and play. Entrance is through the electronic gates where there is enough room for 3 cars if required. Opening the front door and getting first sight of the interior will take your breath away as the decor is of the highest possible modern standard. The ground floor consists of the lounge, kitchen, (with separate utility room off), dining area and a twin bedroom which is served by the communal bathroom directly adjacent. The staircase leads up to two further en-suite spacious double bedrooms and both have balconies off. The decor in each of the bedrooms is nothing short of stunning. From the lounge, 3 huge patio doors allows access to the pool and shaded terraces where you can relax with a glass of wine or indeed enjoy some al fresco dining. The 12 metre pool has a shallow gentle entry end and the deep end is approx 2.0 m. There are sunbeds for all which can be placed on the grassy verges to facilitate supervision of children when in the pool. Underwater lighting creates a fantastic evening ambience when barbecuing around the pool area or al fresco dining.

Vila Marta has every ingredient possible to ensure a fabulous, enjoyable and safe family holiday. It is difficult to describe a property of this quality in words. We do hold a large portfolio of additional photos and these are available to be sent on request. Vila Marta is fully licensed under the Alojamento Local scheme under the process no. 47724 - 17452/2015.

Fabulous Bespoke Luxurious Villa In A Quiet Affluent Area With Sea Views
average rating of 5.0 based on 9 reviews

Vila Marta is a delight.

  • 5 of 5

This wonderful villa is full of light, and is a friendly, welcoming space in a tranquil neighbourhood.

Its layout and features are so well designed: the brick cloister-vaulted ceiling in the kitchen is a very nice touch.

All the French windows have sliding, retractable glazing, bug screens and metal shutters, so that you can easily choose whichever combination you need.

In the evenings, there is a lovely cooling breeze that comes from the ocean, and it’s wonderful to have this flow through the house, with just the bug screens keeping out uninvited guests.

The gardens and pool are softly illuminated at night, becoming another calm and magical space.

The villa, gardens and pool are well maintained and it’s a pleasure to walk in the vicinity.

A restaurant and the beach are a few minutes’ walk away.

This is a rare and lovely property which I unreservedly recommend.

Wonderful vacation!

  • 5 of 5


This was our first stay at Villa Marta and we stayed with friends that have stayed previously. Our friends made the arrangements but we heard Peter was easy to work with.

After a long travel day (and night) from the USA, it was great to have wine and some lunch ready for us and we appreciated that Ana stopped by within a few days of our arrival to make sure everything was satisfactory (and it was more than satisfactory). The Villa is well maintained and the private pool was great for a swim or just to lounge by and drink wine. A 20-25 minute walk and you're at the ocean and can be enjoyed at sunrise or another time of day.

Great place for a restful vacation but close enough to villages and cities if you want something more exciting.

We had a very nice dinner at Hexagon which is within easy walking distance. There are also a few other places within walking distance to get a coffee or pastry which were nice.

We definitely enjoyed our stay and would recommend it to anyone planning a visit to this area. This is such a beautiful area we are planning to stay again at Villa Marta on our next vacation to this area.

Fantastic place; fantastic stay; we will be back!

  • 5 of 5

This was our second stay in The Algarve and again we stayed at the Vila Marta, we loved it as before.

The property is very well maintained and clean. It is so spacious and the kitchen area and salon are inviting. We all loved to be in the kitchen preparing and eating snacks or meals and discussing the day.

When just relaxing during the trip the weather was nicely warm and sunny. We loved being by the pool enjoying the sunshine and sipping white wine. Of course we would swim too and the pool is very nice.

It is an easy 20 minute walk to the ocean from the Vila. We did this walk four or five times to enjoy the seaside and the cliffs overlooking the Atlantic Ocean -- what a great way to see the sunrise with a friend.

The manager, Peter, treated us well and the arrangements were easily made -- even from the States. I highly recommend this property and we are already planning a longer stay!

The Vila Marta is located near many nice restaurants and we particularly liked the Hexagone for our big evening out. Great drinks, great wine, great food. We ate outside and continued to enjoy the weather -- plus it is a short 500m walk to the restaurant.

Beautiful villa

  • 5 of 5

We had such a lovely stay at Villa Marta. Travelled with our two young children (7yrs & 4yrs) and Granny. We all had plenty of room & we were all very comfortable inside & out. The Villa itself is very clean, spacious & the decor is fresh & modern. Villa Marta has everything you can imagine - even spare beach towels! Ferragudo beach is 5 mins away & lovely setting. Peter was really helpful prior to departure & Ana very helpful when at the villa. Great villa & would definitely recommend.

Superb villa - beautifully kept

  • 5 of 5

Having stayed in various villas over the years in the Carvoeiro region, Vila Marta is by far one of the best. Beautifully appointed and clean, we enjoyed the house and gardens very much. The length and depth of the pool with the walk-in steps also was above average. The location is very pleasant and excellent if you wish to golf at the nearby Gramacho or Pinta courses.

Didnt want to leave and will come again. Fabulous

  • 5 of 5

From beginning to end our experience was superb. Booking was straight forward and Peter was accommodating on dates and helpful with local information. On arrival the Villa was immaculately clean with a welcome tray of essentials waiting.

The Villa is spacious and beautifully appointed, it really felt like a home from home with all the amenities you could wish for, as well as a large, sparkling pool.

We travelled as a family of five, Mum, Dad, 2 sons aged 9 and 11 and Grandma. All 3 bedrooms are spacious with comfortable beds and all 3 bathrooms have walk in showers and the master has a wonderful tub as well. Maid service comes in once a week for a linen change and pool towels are also provided so all you need to pack are a few changes of clothes. The excellent laundry facilities eliminate the need to pack for a whole week or longer. The well equipped kitchen has all the dishes and tools for even the most adventurous of cooks complemented of course by the 'outback' style gas barbecue outdoors. It was lovely to be able to lay the table with a good selection of serving dishes and platters and to have more than enough cups and glasses etc. There is of course a dishwasher so cleaning up is a doddle too.

The gardens are equally well maintained. Expect a morning of grass cutting and leaf blowing per week, and an hour or so of sprinklers in the early hours of the morning...Don't leave your washing out overnight!!

We really didn't find them intrusive but Ana will let you know when the various services are coming in so you can choose to be out if you wish. All of the doors and windows have inbuilt fly screens which are essential, especially without air con, although fans are provided for all the bedrooms and living areas.

The pool is inviting both day and night as it is lit. The timer switched on the pool lights at 10pm, and we had many nocturnal swims to the delight of my boys! Unheated it was a little chilly getting in the pool in May, but once in the temperature was fine and we all stayed in for hours. It easily accommodates multiple inflatables and is good too for some 'proper' swimming for the more active holiday maker. The pool is usually in full sun but as the sun moves around shade is available on the surrounding grass too, and ample parasols and bases are also provided. As a fair skinned family we found the covered patio area perfect for alfresco dining and lounging. We cant rate this villa highly enough and will be back again next year

Vila Marta is located in the leafy, affluent suburb of Vale da Pinta, near the end of a cul-de-sac so little to no traffic noise is encountered. Vale da Pinta is approx 10 mins drive to Carvoeiro and 5 mins to Ferragudo. About 5 mins walk gets you to the excellent cafe/restaurant The Island Cafe. Within 15 mins walk or 2 mins drive there are a few shops and a mini mercado where you can obtain dailies such as bread, milk, newspapers etc. You are absolutely spoilt for choice for restaurants as there are many in Ferragudo itself and a huge choice in Carvoeiro with also many others on the journey between these two villages. Caneiros Beach is a 5 min drive away and here there is a fabulous restaurant (Rei das Prais) on wooden stilts overlooking the beach. A fabulous way to watch the sun go down either having a meal or just a glass of wine.

Typical driving distances are as follows: Zoomarine (20 mins), Slide & Splash (10 mins), Aqualand (15 mins), Golf (9 hole 10 mins, 18 holes 12 mins), Boat trips (15 mins), Zoo (25 mins).
