Has Everything You Need For a Fun and Relaxing Holiday

  • 5 of 5

Sam - is the Queen of hospitality and customer service. She understands what guests need and this villa delivers. It was perfect for our group of eight. We lived outside most of the day and evening in the searing September heat. The BBQ was extremely well used as was the pool and outdoors furniture. The villa's location provides a "get away from it all" spot and you will need a car to get about. Previous guests' comments on places to go, restaurants to visit and stores to purchase food and drink proved invaluable and we have no new ones to add since Fernadez, the Bakery and Pria Verde all delivered on their promise. I would add that we had a group of four men who played golf and the villa's location is perfectly positioned for rounds at Monte Rei, Quinta da Cima and Quinta da Ria. Sam was available by text should the need arise and she dealt admirably with our additional needs. We all loved it and would have no hesitation in recommending it to others.

Beautiful villa with all you could need

  • 5 of 5

We absolutely love this villa and have been returning for years now as although we have travelled to many places, we can't top this for delivering everything we need. Sam is always a friendly contact if necessary and clearly wants you to enjoy your stay in her lovely home.

The villa itself is beautiful, calm and uncluttered with a fabulous new seating area outside which we spent many hours relaxing on with plenty of shade to sit in if you need to shelter from the beautiful sunshine!

The pool is perfect for playing or a refreshing swim and is kept well maintained as is everything in the villa. Great BBQ area for outdoor cooking or a large well equipped kitchen inside with plenty of fridge and freezer space. Just a home from home.

There are some great places to explore nearby with some really good local restaurants, a lovely big beach just 15 minutes in the car with sun loungers and parasols to hire, a lively snack bar and restaurants. Or a bit further afield for water parks and plenty of towns to visit along the way. We still haven't run out of things to do when we stay and are looking forward to 2017!

Total bliss. A place to completely relax.

  • 5 of 5

We spent a week at this beautiful villa. The villa is spacious so plenty of room for our party of eight. This included four over 18's plus parents. We never felt on top of each other.

Sam has decorated the villa to a very high standard. Lots of high quality bathroom towels and plenty of pool towels to use. Beds are so comfortable we all slept in most days!

The outside covered area was such a bonus. Very comfortable outside furniture where we spent the hottest part of the day and most of the evenings. The blue lights seemed to keep the insects away which was great when eating.

We found the pool just at the right temperature. Cool to step into but once in it was just right. The teenagers, and adults had great fun round the pool with the numerous floats available.

The kitchen was very well equipped with enough settings for 8 plus plenty to spare.

Sam has put a great deal of thought into this villa and this shows with the standard of the fixtures and fittings. It really is a home from home. Can't wait to return.

The area is very peaceful. Away from traffic and hustle and bustle. There is one nearby restaurant which is very popular and used by many locals. We liked Bella Vista which is a short 5 minute drive away. Simple surroundings but very friendly and excellent food.Meat is displayed in the fridge and you can pick from there. The owner speaks enough English and she was happy to explain the best cuts of pork to have.

You do need a car to stay in this area but it is worth it for the peace & quiet and the surrounding countryside.

Thanks Sam for our great holiday

Our 'Castle'

  • 5 of 5

Once upon a time a nice couple called Rob and Mandy went on holiday to Portugal. They stayed for 2 weeks in a 'castle' (Villa Martins) which sat on the top of a hill and enjoyed wonderful views. The 'castle' was so quiet and peaceful that they spent a lot of time just lounging around enjoying the peace and tranquility ....... occasionally jumping in the lovely pool to cool off!!

Rob treated Mandy like a princess and spoilt her by cooking lovely meals in the very well equipped kitchen. Every evening they dined outside and watched the sun go down with a glass (or two) of wine.

They had stayed at this 'castle' on a few occasions previously and were pleasantly surprised by the transformations Sam had recently made to the property. It now has a stunning gazebo to chill out in, patio area around the pool and a very impressive boundary wall which glowed with lights at night.

With such an enjoyable and amazing place to stay Rob and Mandy only ventured out a couple of times to replenish supplies and enjoy a stroll around nearby Monte Gordo and Vila Real.

The couple would not hesitate to recommend this amazing 'castle' as a place to stay if you are looking for total relaxation in beautiful surroundings with everything you need to make your stay comfortable and a real home from home

The end. x

Mandy and Rob

The owner Sam is delight to deal with and makes your stay comfortably from start to finish.

Since we came last time Sam has made some really welcomed improvements the chill out area with sofas was great and many a lovely evening was spend there

The villa and grounds are really stunning and calming

Everywhere you look is a beautiful vista

Thanks Sam

Pure Luxury!

  • 5 of 5

What a gem this villa is. We stayed for 2 weeks in mid July and had a wonderful time. There was a group of 9 of us and we all had plenty of room, easy to take yourself off for a read or a chill out either outside or in due to the ample space.

Maintained and kitted out to a high standard, plenty of pool towels available and WiFi a boon, seen as though 5 of our party were between 13-22 years!

Kitchen had everything you could need and great fridge for the big shop days, room for beer and wine too!

Nothing too much trouble for owner Sam or all her staff who were on hand for any issues/advice. Sam was a delight to deal with and booking the villa and getting all relevant info from her was easy. She can even point you in the right direction for car hire (which I would say is a must) and local amenities.

The villa sits high up so has lovely views of the surrounding area and the sea. Its within its own grounds and has electric gates at the bottom of the drive for that added security. Neighbours were Portuguese who tended their land every morning, nice to sit out with a cuppa and you always got a wave! Very friendly; as was the local restaurant Fernando's. Great food and excellent value for money. The men of the party took themselves off for a few beers most late afternoons before heading back to get the barbie started!

Easy ride from the airport- about 50 mins and nearest big supermarket was about 10 mins away but plenty of little shops in Cacela to get bits and bobs if you're having a pool day! Great little bakery just as you enter the town from the villa side, a chemist and a mini supermarket.

I would definitely recommend the villa to friends and relatives, if you're looking for luxury and relaxation you wouldn't be disappointed.

We're planning to return in 2017!

Activity and Interests


There are plenty of beaches to visit. The nearest is Manta Rota beach, which is around 6km away. The beach in Altura is a great day out and very family friendly. A little further on, you have Monte Gordo beach. They all have plenty of bars, restaurants for everyone. A short drive from Cacela, is Cacela Vella. It is sign posted of the 125 road. It is a really lovely spot to visit, with an old church and fantastic sea views. There are also some good restaurants there.


We highly recommend you hire a car when renting the villa. The local airport Faro, is around a 40 min by car. The A22 motorway is around 4km away from the villa.


Bars, restaurants and supermarkets are a 10 min drive. The nearest village is Cacela, were you will find banks, markets, restaurants, coffee shops, pharmacy and anything else you may need. A 25 min drive will take you to, the main town, Tavira. There you will find a very large shopping mall, with plenty of activities to do. Faro also has shopping malls, cinema etc.

Further Details:

There are water parks for family days out. They are about an hours drive. If you want a late night, you can visit Monte Gordo which has nightclubs and bars. There are a couple of night clubs on the 125 road and also lots of bars and night life if you go into Tavira.
