About The Owner

We were so lucky to find Martinhal in 2001 before most, spoilt for choice we found a magical location to build our villa.The architect broke with tradition to design a building which brought the old and modern together. To sit on the balcony at night looking at the lights Sages Harbour is an experience all our guests recount. There are many quotes in our `Guest Book`which describe how much the guests have enjoyed their stay but most gratifying is the number who return.

Guestbook comments from the owner

Guests have written wonderful things in our visitors book for you to read if you decide to go. Most have stated about the magical situation, a beautiful villa with outstanding views both day and night, peaceful so much so that there is no need to explore! also how well they are looked after by Anabela the house keeper who keeps the villa spotlessly clean.

Take me back!

  • 5 of 5

We had such a lovely stay in this villa in early May. The rooms are spacious and modern and there are two large terraces with stunning views across the ocean and the harbour.

We spent most of the time by the private pool but there’s also a choice of several beaches in the area. The Martinhal beach is a short walk away and we had a nice little lunch at the restaurant; we spent one afternoon at Praia do Beliche (watch out for the steep steps if you have small children or older relatives) on the way out to the lighthouse at Cabo de São Vicente (the end of the world!); and on one rainy day we timed the weather perfectly to arrive down at Praia do Amado just as the sun came out, with the beach practically to ourselves.

The kitchen is well equipped and we did most of our own cooking, buying food at the nearby Intermarché and one day also picking up some fresh sardines and sea bream from the fish market in Lagos, to grill on the barbecue terrace. Plenty of seating areas for your group to sit together or to split off for some quiet time. Good wifi in most rooms.

The weather can be variable in the shoulder seasons but it tends to be better out here than it does in a lot of the resorts further east and it never rains all day :-)

Hope to be back next year!

Excellent house. Excellent location.

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful stay here.

Modern and stylish building.


4 regular bedrooms for 2, and a large basement room with beds for 4. Lots of bathrooms, all very nice and clean.

Big living room connected to the 2 upper terraces and barbecue area.

One terrace being perfect for breakfast, with sun or shade as you please, and a view to the sea.

Normally we would go out for dinner, but the views from the terraces are too fantastic! Good kitchen. Good barbecue facility. Good restaurants in Sagres with takeaway. So sunset dinner at home it was! 😋

Pool is really nice, with a deep end, and was heated just right.

Privacy and flexible service. Really nice people.

Highly recommended.

We had a great time at the fully-equiped villa. The service was great and we felt at home at once. Great spot for surfing and relaxing. We will definitely come back.

Peaceful week of sun and surf

  • 5 of 5

This was our second stay here, it is a lovey, lovely place. 3 generations stayed - something for everyone, exquisite views, heated pool, shady areas, outdoor eating areas. Every item of cooking equipment you could wish for, Amado beach for surf lessons 20 minutes away and we were out of season so it was really peaceful. Housekeeper charming and faultless. Roll on next year, I will be back.

Fantastic villa for a large family

  • 5 of 5

We enjoyed a wonderful week in this amazing villa. While the weather was very mixed we didn’t mind so much as the villa is such a pleasant environment, even if you can’t utilise the fabulous outdoor area around the pool or the BBQ terrace. The large sandy beach is only a few minutes walk away. We had 2 hire cars which meant that we were able to get out and about which I’d highly recommend. There’s a Lidl in Villa De Bispo so you can do a large shop for the week at reasonable prices. The pool is heated which is a must if you’re visiting outside of the peak summer months. Note you do not have the use of any of facilities of the Martinhal complex. You can’t even buy bread there as they don’t take cash, (Martinhal guests have to charge back to their villa account). However, you can eat in the main beach or seafood restaurant and pay cash. Overall I would highly recommend this villa. We’ll hopefully be back some day.

lovely Villa, breathtaking views, magical place

  • 5 of 5

For the reception and the celebration of our wedding we were looking for a suitable property. The owners of this beautiful villa were friendly and helpful from the first inquiry and provided the best support I can imagine.

Our family members, who stayed here with us for one week, were overwhelmed by the beauty of this place and could not believe their eyes: Two huge balconies - each with an amazing view. Especially the kids enjoyed the heated pool and the nice garden area. They have reported dolphins in the harbor.

On the wedding day a lot of friends came by to celebrate with us. It was better than in holywood films.

Anabela cared for us and did a great job. She is a very friendly and helpful person.

We can strongly recommend this villa for families and friends and cannot imagine a better place to spend our holidays.

Dear owners, dear Anabela, dear Portugal: Thanks a lot!
