About the Owner
My passion for travel began in my teens. I have since travelled extensively, often re-visiting the same places many times. The wonderful thing about travelling is that it gives me a personal insight into how people choose to live their lives. I was struck by the different elements in a person’s life that makes them tick; no matter the climate, the food, the tradition, the culture, we all share a common thread of humanity.

Comfortable and well located
Comfortable apartment in a quiet and convenient location within walking distance of sea, bars and retaurants. Ideal for exploring or relaxing. Apartment was very clean and possessed all necessary amenities, including a nice shared swimming pool. The local bars are worth visiting and the restaurants, particularly those by the quay, serve great food with the fish a highlight. Value for money is extraordinary. The area is great for walking and we also enjoyed trips by local buses to nearby towns.
From the Owner
“I first came to this part of Portugal in 2009. My husband and I have enjoyed many happy and relaxing holidays in Sao Martinho Do Porto, returning every year. I love being by the sea and relaxing in the sunshine at one of the many bars and cafes lining the promenade. I just adore sitting outside drinking a coffee or glass of wine and watching the world go by, or simply looking out across the bay at the sunset. I was attracted to this apartment because of the high specification, the exquisite finish, its clean lines and the modern simple decor, fabrics and lighting. The pool area is secluded and is a perfect place for lounging & relaxing in the sunshine.”
Activity and Interests
Sao Martinho Do Porto sits on the edge of a spectacular shell shaped bay, protected from the Atlantic and is one of the top 10 beaches in Portugal, also one of the safest. Perfect for families and small children. The bay is surrounded by a wide range of cafes, bars and restaurants with amazing views and breathtaking sunsets. It is also a very short drive to some of the most magnificent unspoilt beaches on the Silver Coast.
