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 the Owner
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.
Please get in touch with us. During the low season there may be scope for discounted prices if you are a smaller group and do not require the use of the cottage - see the offer for 2 bedroom option.
30% booking deposit required, the balance (70%) 10 weeks before arrival
The preferred changeover day is Saturday in the high season - from June to mid September; We are flexible about that in low season;
Notes on prices:
The prices are for 3 or 2 bedroom scenarios - see the respective adverts; Please contact the owners for other options e.g. longer stays, especially in low season - winter; We are more flexible about change over days (arrival/departure) after high season;

4 of us stayed here for 4 days and 3 nights. The house is really nice, the pictures do it justice. We hung around by the pool, had a BBQ one night, and went to some local restaurants too. There is a great restaurant on the beach which was great, with a pretty empty beach which was great. Nice wind, so not too hot.

Activity and Interests
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.
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.
