About Ian Martin

I live and work in Portugal and we live very near to "Villa SOL" Ref P12289, "Villa Amaro" Ref P3867 and apartment Ref P7209. These properties were all restored and are part of our family homes. The owners are both English and Portuguese and that gives us a great insight into Portugal. We are always trying to improve our properties so any comments tenants make are discussed and usually acted upon.

Why Ian Martin chose Caparica

The Property was fully restored in 2005. The villa is set in a rural and quiet location. In the Protected landscape fossil coast of Costa da Caparica. Dispite being in a quite location its not remoteness you quickly reach Lisbon and all the aminities you need. And thats what we love about the place good location without the fuss. Thats Why we live in this area for more than 50 years, and we pretend to continue.

What makes this villa unique

As we live nearby to the property we are always on hand to help you enjoy your holiday. Most of our clients are repeat business. One year helped arrange dining, taxis and laundry service for a couple on their wedding day. We know the local area and these properties are our homes.

Guestbook comments from the owner

Ian and Teresa, Our second great holiday in Villa Amaro 5* accommodation. Again we took advantage of the local knowledge you gave us showing us around on our first visit. Thursday we took the ferry from Porto Brandao to Belem for pastries and on Friday we had a superb dinner in Brandao itself. My inlaws were very comfortable and thoroughly enjoyed their 3 nights stay. (I am pretty sure Easter at Villa Amaro will become a family tradition. The kids (all 6) are counting down the 13 weeks to go for our next holiday so thanks again and see you in July. Best wishes Tony.

Hi Ian and Teresa I just wanted to say thank you. We had a wonderful time and the villa was just what we needed. It is good to see there are some improvements going on down at the beach. I am sure when it is all finished it will be very worthwhile. Your villa was very comfortable with everything we could possibly need. I hope we can visit again some time. Regards Eryl

Stunning Villa in Caparica

  • 5 of 5

A lovely villa with a pool very spacious and close to Lisbon, about half an hour away.The photos on the website for the villa are exactly how it is , in fact even better. Ian and Theresa were so helpful even when we had a wedding car issue they were willing to help. We hired a car which meant we were able to not only visit Lisbon which is beautiful but also Caparica which is about ten minutes away. The supermarket is about five minutes away which has exerything you need. We travelled as a family and had a wonderful relaxing time. We will hopefully return in the future .

Absolutely lovely, well equipped villa.

  • 5 of 5

This villa is fabulous. We spent lazy days by the pool and enjoyed days visiting Caparica, Lisbon and Belem which aren't too far away by car.

The villa is ideal for two families sharing as there are two bedrooms and a bathroom on each floor.

Theresa and Ian were extremely helpful and responsive.

Beautiful villa

  • 5 of 5

This villa was all as described and more. Set in a peaceful area which made you feel relaxed. Just sitting out by the pool in the sun shine was great. Theresa was lovely and showed us around the villa and where everything was. The beach was about 10 minutes drive away and there is a vast area of sands. Lots of nice eating places down there too. Would fully recommend this villa as a place to stay

Excellent Villa

  • 5 of 5

We stayed here for 8 nights with 2 of our children and were joined by my sister and her 2 children and my mother in law for 3 of these nights. As soon as we met Teresa, the owner, she couldn't do enough for us. The villa was spotless and had everything you could need for a super holiday. The children loved the pool and the villa was large enough for everyone to enjoy their own space. Pingo Dolce supermarket is only a couple of minutes drive away and had everything you need, from fresh fish and meat to excellent wine and cheese. We loved every minute of our stay and will definitely return again. Thank you again for your hospitality.
