About the property


Villa Verde is family owned and run high standard villa in a perfect location offering a boutique like service for demanding customers, who appreciate more privacy, exclusivity than they can expect from big organisations. Villa Verde is not a part of the Martinhal Hotel - the hotel's area starts stretching to the right from the street named: "Q ta do Martinhal" - see on the attached map under "Location";

Villa Verde has been built in one of the most attractive locations of the Martinhal Residential part and boasts completely unobstructed panoramic views of the Martinhal dunes, public beach and the ocean with the island. The view can be enjoyed both from the villa and from the huge terrace around a large private swimming pool. The centre of the huge, beautiful, public, sandy beach can be arrived in 2-3 min. easy walk from the doorstep of Villa Verde. The owners have built and equipped the villa to the highest standards ensuring a very relaxed and comfortable stay for it's guests. Villa Verde consists of the main Villa with two spacious bedrooms, two bathrooms; fully equipped, modern kitchen and a spacious living room. A separate cottage just a few steps from the main villa offers for the "sleep 6 option" oversized bedroom and bathroom and a kitchenette (the cottage remains unrented for "the sleeps 4 option"). Unique features include, deep (up to 2m) and long (12m) heated swimming pool with automatic cover that gives more safety for children, excellent thermal insulation (no a/c needed in summer and warm in winter), solar powered tap water, swimming pool and underfloor heating, salt purification of the pool water meaning no chlorine smell or dry skin, gas powered BBQ and very well equipped kitchen. Although the villa is located in the middle of the Martinhal Beach Resort and so close to the beach, restaurants, it is in that residential part of Martinhal that is sheltered enough from the nearby hotel hassle hence offering privacy and tranquility.

About Richard & Lena Dimmich

The owners Lena and Richard have an international background and have lived in several European countries including over 20 years in Vienna. After travelling to practically all Mediterranean and Atlantic coasts in Europe, they fell in love with Martinhal over 10 years ago and decided to settle here. They continue to be amazed by the beauty and tranquility of the area.

Richard & Lena Dimmich purchased this villa in 2012

Why Richard & Lena Dimmich chose Vila Do Bispo region

Apart from the superb location this property is unique in terms of the high standard it is built, equipped and serviced. It gives the guests the feeling that an owner who cares and has the experience and culture stands behind every feature they are confronted with.

What makes this villa unique

The owners have built and equipped Villa Verde ( 2011/2013) to the same high standards and attention to detail as their own house in Martinhal, as it is also where family visitors come to stay. This means that Villa Verde has many luxurious features that are uncommon in this part of the world, such as:

- special thermal insulation that keeps the villa cool in summer and warm in winter;

- acoustic insulation between bedrooms and living room;

- water (for tap and pool) is heated by heat exchangers and therefore only fresh water is being used

The owners genuinely manage the Villa themselves and personally supervise all services (cleaning, laundering, repairing etc.) in order to maintain the villa in the same perfect condition as their own home.

Car: recommended

Coast/Beach: Villa Verde boats one, if not the best locations in Martinhal - it has not only unobstructed, panoramic views of the ocean and the island but also the easiest and shortest access to the centre of the wonderful ca. 800m long, white sandy, public beach called Martinhal; It takes 2-3 minutes walk to that beach surrounded by dunes with calm, clear water and plenty of water sports opportunities and two beach restaurants; Many other sandy beaches are a short drive away - Tonel is a major destination for wave surfing or Beliche which is sheltered from northern winds (both 5min drive). Within 20mins drive there are another 30+ beautiful and varied, often deserted beaches to explore


1.15h from the Faro airport on almost empty new motorway; 3h from Lisbon airport;

Car hire is recommended since there are so many places to be visited e.g. a very picturesque old town Lagos or the beaches in the West Coast;

Still, it is entirely possible to stay in Martinhal without a car and there are low cost shuttle transfer services from Faro airport.

There is a bike rental service in Sagres;


2-3 min. walk to: beach, beach restaurants, water sport rentals;8 min. drive (15-20min. walk) to Sagres with restaurants, lively nightlife, shops,supermarkets surf and bike rentals, courses, boat trips and other beaches ;

15 - 20 min. drive to other small villages with restaurants, beaches etc.

15 min. drive to Parque da Floresta golf course, spa etc.

30 min. drive to the picturesque, historical town Lagos - the most beautiful in the Algarve with a nice marina and many other attractions.

Further Details:

Villa Verde is a luxurious way to experience the unspoilt charm of the Western Algarve, of which Sagres is the jewel. A little over 1hr drive from Faro, you can chose to relax by the pool and at the fine sandy beach at your doorstep, or get active with surfing, windsurfing, dolphin/whale watching, cycling or exploring the surrounding nature reserve. Although small, Sagres offers a surprising variety of places to eat, ranging from fine dining to freshly caught fish from its fishing port as well as pizza and hearty surfer's fare. During the high season, the many laid-back bars in Sagres' high street are buzzing with an international mix of surfer types and holidaymakers. Many activities are offered - from bike rentals to wave surfing courses, dolphin watching etc. Villa Verde's central, yet quiet location and its comfortable beds will ensure you still get a deserved good night's sleep.

Perfect in every way!

  • 5 of 5

It was a successful holiday. This is due to the owners of the villa, the location and the beautiful villa.

First, the owners are very kind and generous ... helped us in every way. They have recommended us many places that we wouldn’t have seen them if they wouldn’t told us about them.

Second, the location is a dream, with a beautiful and quiet beach where you can do many water sports (on the recommendation of the owner-Richard, we made wind surf with the best surfer-Dani ... was a unique experience).

Thirdly, the villa is very well equipped, very modern and located just 3 minutes from the beach. The wind is quite strong in the area, but due to location of the villa, doesn’t feel at all. The pool is also great, the water is 28 degrees and is based on saltwater-perfect for our kids.

We had a great time there and even if we stayed 3 weeks we didn’t tired of the beauty of the place. So, if you want to go…go because you will not regret it.

Thanks for all Lena and Richard and see you in the near future!

We promise that we will come back!

Ramona and family

We spent a memorable week at villa verde. the villa is one of the closest to the beach within the whole neighbourhood, with a magnificent ocean view. Also worth mentioning is the fact that the property consists of 2 houses (a one bedroom cottage, and two bedroom main house), both very well equipped and nicely furnished. The swimming pool is 13 metres of length making it ideal for both swimming and relaxing. The water in the pool is warm and slightly salty. The white sandy beach which is a 3 minute walk from the property is very wide, perfect for windsurfers and is home to a very nice local restaurant Nortada. Sagres town which is full of restaurants and bars is a 15 minute walk or 5 minute drive and the supermarket is located on the way to town. There are a lot of interesting places to visit in the surrounding areas and a lot of small, picturesque towns between the red cliffs with hidden beaches. For golfers, there is a very nice golf course a 10 minute drive from the house. Finally, but perhaps most importantly, the owners of the property are extremely helpful in all respects and are very interesting and charming people. I definitely recommend Villa Verde for all of the above mentioned reasons - it is the ultimate location for both relaxing and spending time actively.

Just perfect

  • 5 of 5

Everything amazing!

We have stayed in the Cottage of the guesthouse and it was just amazing.

When you arrive you are blown away by the amazin view. Just al little walk to the beach with nice dining and lunch restaurants to enjoy the local kitchen.

The accomodation is even worth zeven stars! Amazin shower, Amazin pool with heated water. The use of a full equipped kitchen, BBQ and everything you need.

Some times you dont even feel the need to go away for a day, since the stay is unbeleivably comfortable.

The hosts are great, friendly and make you feel very welcome.

They live just less then a minute away and are there when you need.

A big recommendation, for families, group of friends or just with the one you love.

Sun, sand and luxury

  • 5 of 5

We had a fantastic stay at Villa Verde; the house is spotless, beautiful and is equipped with top tier facilities. Only a couple of minutes away from a stunning beach, and only a short beach walk away from Sagres.

A great place to relax and take in the scenery, excellent location and extremely gracious, welcoming hosts.

A real treat!
