About the Owner
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.
Ian Martin purchased this villa in 2010
Why Ian Martin chose Almada
The Property was fully restored in 2012. 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.

A little gem
Just back from our stay at this lovely well maintained villa. The grounds are beautiful and the pool area exceptional - it definitely surpassed expectations. Everything you need to make your stay comfortable is provided by Teresa and Ian. It was a lazy holiday for us just chilling and recharging our batteries, We didn't stray very far although enjoyed taking the ferry to Lisbon and a couple of days on the beach. Would strongly recommend Villa Sol to anyone who is looking for someplace to relax, although a car is a must.
Impeccable and Comfortable Home in Sunny Portugal
We had a two week stay at Villa Sol in Sept / 2015. The villa is very accurately documented on this page and has everything ready to support your stay! Just arrive with your swim suit and toothbrush - what is not already within the villa is readily available at the nearby grocery store: Pingo Doce.
The furnishings, appliances, pool and landscaping make it that you don't want to leave and visit the other things in the nearby surroundings, including the seaside and Lisbon! The villa is super clean and well maintained.
The hostess & host owners are readily available to answer questions before you arrive and provide endless support and information during your stay. We had a problem with our luggage not arriving with us (it came later that day and the next) and the hostess-owner was very helpful in directing the airport staff how to get our things to us!
I would recommend this property to those who want all the comforts of home while relaxing and exploring a most interesting part of Portugal. Everything is within easy reach by car - the beach, Lisbon and many attractions in and around Setubal province including shopping (Almada Forum or Outlet shopping), wine estates, golf, historic sites (Sintra and Evora are not to be missed) ... or Lisbon is about 30 minutes away, either over the bridge or via ferry.
To demonstrate how high our recommendation is: we booked for two more weeks in 2016 before we had even left from this rental!!
This is an ideal accommodation for two couples or two couples with children or a group of friends and family that want a 4-bedroom / 4-bathroom home away from home.
perfect holiday location
Our first impression of Villa Sol was perfect. The location, 25 minutes from the airport was easy to get to, we had received great directions from Ian and Teresa, and we found the location no problem. The villa was even more spacious than we had imagined and spotless. The pool area was really nice, a great sun trap and although the water was cold the pool itself was a great fun space in which we played volleyball, and just relaxed on inflatable loungers in the pool. Within 10 minutes of the villa by car we were on the beautiful Caparica beach - 20 miles of golden sand and the Atlantic gently breaking on its shore. We did surf lessons at Epic surf school which was fantastic. I can highly recommend Villa Sol, it was a perfect location for our family, 25 minutes from Lisbon and all the culture and history the capital city of Portugal delivers and 10 minutes from a lovely beach. We can't wait to come back.
Fantastic property and location
As a family of 4 with two early teen kids (room for many more easily) we had a brilliant week. The villa was spotlessly clean in a quiet location with amazing views yet close to all facilities. We used ferry to get into Lisbon with ease and had two fantastic days wondering around this lovely city.
The pool was great with lots of inflatables and local beach beautiful.
Lovely verandah for eating and lounging in shade.
We had a car and would have had a different week without it but I imagine could be managed using taxis.
Would throughly recommend both villa and location
Another Brilliant Holiday
This is our second year staying at Villa Sol, and again have had a lovely time. We enjoy the quietness and location, where it only takes us 5 minutes in the car to get us anywhere.
We can not fault one single thing and will book again for our next holiday. The improvements which have been made where also fantastic.
Can not rate this villa highly enough and also thanks to Teresa for the home grown vegetables!!
Many thanks again for a lovely holiday.
We could not fault the villa, it was spotlessly clean - (extremely important) and had everything you could possibly need. The pool was perfect as we had children with us and the whole holiday was very relaxing.
You do need a car to get out and about, shopping etc. The welcome basket was well worth it as we arrived late at night.
