Family Luxury holidays in Portugal


Crafted by a husband and wife team who traveled the world, visiting exotic location and always staying in luxurious accommodations, before having kids, they wanted to keep the travels going and not diminish their style one bit.  They knew that they were not alone in this desire to maintain a high standard even though there were now children involved.

Southern Portugal

Martinhal Sagres is built in a nature park. This hotel is the family-owned flagship property. At only 7 years old, the brand’s message is very clear– Always five-star level luxury with a family-centric focus. Driving in to this village of luxury villas, you realize that these spacious accommodations are the central focus of the property and it’s instantly evident that the luxury holiday experience starts before you even open the door to your dream family vacation. These villas are known as Village Houses and range in size from one to three bedrooms and actual family villas have as many as five bedrooms.  The possibilities of two families coming together just became a real option.

The hotel portion of the resort occupies the smallest size on the property. The villas are the focus. With all the smiling faces and the pitter-pat of feet running around the resort is a joyful reminder that couples who have traveled all over the world together and have now found themselves as parents, have found a new way to vacation in Portugal. Being able to aptly capture the lifelong lifestyle choices that more and more families are making has become a hallmark of the Martinhal brand. Luxury and family are no longer mutually exclusive. The attention to detail is everywhere. Sir Terrence Conran designed the furniture for the hotel, resembling something straight out of Frank Lloyd Wright’s sketch pad has rounded edges, nothing sharp for the little ones
