About Beverley Hall

John and I first visited Sal in 2005 with the intention of buying a home in the sun. As property developers in the UK we know how important location is when deciding where to buy. As a recently retired Ward Sister we are now able to spend more time in Sal and John can continue his passion for kite surfing, whilst I can soak up the sun.

Beverley Hall purchased this apartment in 2005

Why Beverley Hall chose Santa Maria

We looked at many different developments but it was Porto Antigo that we fell in love with; we didnt find any other development which offered such a picturesque front line setting. The pool is a good size and is surrounded by well maintained gardens.

What makes this apartment unique

Our properties are situated on the ground floor within a stones throw of the pool and beach.

Fantastic position, great little apartment

We have stayed in Bev's apartment lots of times before and know Sal very well. It's a fantastic apartment and suits our family of four perfectly. Great location and everything you need is included in the apartment. We will definitely be back.

Stunning views in a beautiful apartment

  • 5 of 5

This is our 3rd vist to Porto antigo. We love coming here due to the quiet apartment complex and privacy of it. Apartment is clean and modern.Great swimming pool and private beaches. If you love white clear sandy beaches and crystal clear sea this is the place to come. Loads of places to eat and a great restaurant at the end of the pier that does fresh sea food. Great local drink called caprina, give them a try. There a few great day trips over the island that are very good that include swimming with sharks,cliff diving and a salt mine.I will be returning this year hopefully.

Owner's Response: Hi Jimmy, thank you for taking the time to post your review of Number 13 Porto Antigo 1. As you know we ensure our apartment remains at a high standard by our regular visits to Sal (its a hard job but someones got to do it!!). The recently extended terrace has gone down really well with our guests as we get the sun for most of the day now. We look forward to welcoming you back with the children in the not too distant future. They will enjoy the inflatables we provide for the pool and beach toys. Regards Beverley and John

The island of Sal was featured on Channel 4 back in 2008 when Cheryl Baker of Bucks Fizz fame was captured by the beauty of its unspoilt beaches and year round sunshine. More recently in 2017 the island was again featured in A Place in the Sun. Our properties are located at The Porto Antigo Residence which is directly on the beautiful beach of Santa Maria. It would be impossible to be located any closer to the ocean. We believe that Porto Antigo is the best location in Sal and our properties have the most stunning sea views being situated on the very best location in the complex.


The Porto Antigo Residence is a 15 min (approx) taxi ride from Sal airport. We can arrange transfer on arrival at a rate of 15 euros payable directly to our driver.


The town centre of Santa Maria is a 3 minute stroll from the Porto Antigo Residence here you will find plenty of bars and restaurants. You really are spolit for choice and can if you wish eat in a different restaurant every night.

There are restaurants to suit all budgets from the local restaurants featuring their dish of the day for 3 euros to the more upmarket restaurants. The capital of Espargos is around a 20 minute drive, experience the local Alugier minibus for 1 euro each way.

Further Details:

The small colourful town of Santa Maria is located within a few minutes walk of the Porto Antigo Residence. Here there are many fine restaurants, bars, shops, banks, bakery and mini markets. Watch the locals entertain you from one of the many pavement cafes. For the more energetic try your hand at one of the many water sports on offer-kite surfing, wind surfing, diving, fishing-all are available within a few minutes walk. Santa Maria is renowned world wide for its water sports. The world windsurfing championships have been held in Santa Maria for many years.
