Stunning Villa with pool in perfect location only minutes from everything



Updated: 19-Nov-2016
Villa in Sao Martinho do Porto, Silver Coast, Portugal - Superb Location, only a few mins walk from Beach, Bars, Restaurants and Market

Stunning villa situated on a large corner plot on a small select development with private pool and parking. The fabulous sheltered shell shaped bay with it's safe sandy beach (pictured) and the friendly local market, with fresh vegetables, fish, bread etc plus the brand new recently opened Intermarche Supermarket are all less than 5 mins walk away. Large gardens and patios to the front, side and rear. All bedrooms have private balconies and the villa is fully air-conditioned and equipped with all modern facilities, including satellite TV. Because of its superb location (with ample private parking for up to 6 vehicles) a car is not essential. We believe this is the best positioned villa of its size in the town, only minutes walk away from the beach, bars, shops and restaurants. Absolutely perfect for families requiring a pool or beach holiday, or simply as a base to explore the historic surrounding areas, eg Obidos, Fatima, Alcobaca, Sintra, Lisbon.

Carole Lloyd (Lancashire). Party of 9, June 10. 'We absolutely loved Sao Martinho and as for the Villa, it was amazing. We all loved it. The children really enjoyed the pool, we struggled to get them out of it. The surrounding areas are really lovely and we managed to see quite alot of the towns around. All in all, a really enjoyable holiday and definitely somewhere we would look to return to.

S Simpson (Manchester). Party of 8, June '12. Superb, spacious well equipped Villa in excellent location close to everything. Have booked again for next year!

Great Family Holiday Villa!

  • 4 of 5

Villa was booked for a family holiday and the property was perfect for a large family and close to all the amenities. The bedrooms and living areas were spacious and well furnished, however, additional towels would have been helpful because of the size of our party. Laundry facilities are very good so it wasn't a huge problem. The location of the villa is ideal because it is very close to the market for fresh food and the supermarket is only a short distance away.

Sao Martinho is a lovely resort for families having a beautiful beach, affordable restaurants and good weather. We will certainly be returning to this accommodation in the future with our growing family.

Personal thanks go to Lisa for helping us to make this such a wonderful holiday.

Fantastic Villa Fantastic location!!

  • 5 of 5

We enjoyed a fantastic 2 week family holiday in this beautiful and very spacious villa. On arrival we found the villa to be very clean and well equipped for the number of people staying. The kids loved the pool, there were plenty of sunbeds to go round and the table tennis table was a big hit too!! We were pleased to find that it was only a short walk from the beach, restaurants and supermarket. We particularly loved the little market, which is only a 2 minute walk from the villa, where we were able to get fresh bread and fruit every morning.

On an evening we were spoiled for choice with the restaurants and we found the prices extremely reasonable!! The little train that runs from the front is a must, it is cheaply priced and gives you the opportunity to take in the beautiful views of San Martinho!! We would definitely recommend this villa for a great family holiday and will be returning ourselves in the future!!

wonderful holiday

  • 5 of 5

We have just returned from a wonderful two week holiday staying at this beautiful villa. We were on a family holiday with two babies parents & grandparents. It was ideal for all generations. The villa was very well equipped especially the kitchen. It was very clean. The location was excellent with a fresh market on the doorstep also a supermarket 10 min walk. There were beautiful restaurants very nearby not to mention the beautiful beach & promenade

We will definitely return

Stunning Villa, Fantastic Location

  • 5 of 5

We returned from a wonderful 10 day stay last week.

The villa was much larger than we expected and was decorated beautifully to a very high standard. It had everything we needed to have a perfect holiday, we had some lovely BBQ's around the relaxing pool area and had lots of fun with the ping pong table!

The location was perfect with shops, restaurants and the beach all in walking distance!

Lisa and Ann were extremely helpful throughout and even bought a 3rd cot for the villa which saved us bringing one out with us.

There were 9 adults and 3 infants in our party and every one of us would highly recommend both the Villa and Sao Martinho Do Porto!

Perfect Family Holiday accommodation and location

  • 5 of 5

The Villa was ideal for my 3 grandchildren and six other family members, We all had very comfortable bedrooms (with room to spare). Villa as a whole was very spacious, decorated and fitted to a high standard. It was great to have air conditioning, although the design of the building meant we rarely needed it. Loved the downstairs indoor games area leading out into the Pool Area, especially the kids. Location is spot-on, within walking distance to the local market, shops, restaurants, bars and supermarket and of course the lovely family friendly beach. The town and bay is one of the best holiday locations I have stayed at, The locals and mostly Portuguese holiday makers provide a very welcoming and friendly atmosphere.
