We know that you might be feeling uncertain about booking your next holiday with the ever-changing travel restrictions, which is why we've introduced our Travel Restrictions Guarantee for your peace of mind.
Book your next villa holiday with confidence, safe in the knowledge that you can either move your dates or receive a holiday voucher for the full amount paid if your travel dates are restricted by either FCDO/local government advice advice or local restrictions in your destination country.*
The Travel Restrictions Guarantee is automatically included in the website price and can be removed before you book, however we strongly advise you keep it to give you added flexibility and protection.
You will still need to purchase a comprehensive travel insurance policy as soon as your booking is confirmed. This insurance should, as a minimum, protect you against cancellation, curtailment, medical expenses, loss/theft of possessions and documents, personal liability and airline failure.
Terms and Conditions
'Travel Restrictions Guarantee' applies to bookings for arrival between 1st May 2021 and 31st December 2021 only.
If there are restrictions advising against travel to your chosen destination country, you will be able to cancel your villa and receive a holiday voucher for the full amount paid for your villa to rebook when you are ready to do so.
If there are restrictions in your destination country preventing you from being able to travel to that destination, you will be able to cancel your villa and receive a voucher for the full amount paid for your villa to rebook when you are ready to do so.
'Travel Restrictions Guarantee' is automatically included in the search results price on the solmarvillas.com website.
The premium paid for 'Travel Restrictions Guarantee' is non-commissionable.
The premium can be removed from the basket if not required. If removed during booking, you still have 7 days from confirmation to add this back on if needed.
For bookings made less than 6 weeks before arrival, this premium can't be added or removed after booking.
The 'Travel Restrictions Guarantee' is non-refundable, non-transferable and non-commissionable.
Cancellation of the booking will also result in loss of the premium paid.

This sweet, portuguese three-bedroom is situated in the idyllic seaside resort of Vale De Parra, with superb views over the valley towards Armação de Pera. Boasting a fantastic swimming pool and plenty of sun loungers, the villa is perfectly designed for sun kissed family holidays.
A traditional Portuguese BBQ allow you to prepare and serve your meals al-fresco. When the kids aren’t frolicking in the pool, there’s also a ping pong table in the garden.
The interiors are light, with cream walls and tiled flooring and splashes of fuchsia in the sheer curtains and scatter cushions. A staircase leads up to the first floor where the master bedroom boasts a stunning domed ceiling and its own ensuite shower room. The other two bedrooms are twin and these share a superb power body massage shower, which is absolutely invigorating.
Vale De Parra is a tranquil, unspoilt village with quaint restaurants serving local wine which the region is famed for. Translated as ‘Valley of the Grapevines’, the villas are nestled amongst vineyards and citrus trees.

We spend a wonderful hollyday at Villa Girassol with 3 childrens (near Albufeira) : Garden, pool, nice bedrooms, kitchen and bathrooms. We appreciated that the house was cleaned in the middle of the week (so nice!) We discover very beautiful beaches near the house, and a very good supermarket (Appolonia : expensive, but the food is very good). To conclude I recommend this location !

We had a lovely holiday in Villa Girrasol. This was our third time to the area using Solmar and this was by far the nicest villa we have stayed in. Everything was modern, clean and very comfortable the interior was quite stunning and we were not disappointed from the pictures. There are some lovely restaurants and bars within easy walking distance. The only downside to this lovely villa is that because it is located on a main road you do get a lot of traffic noise when sat outside around the pool, some people might not like this but we simply turned our music up and didn't let this spoil our experience. There are also a few noisy barking dogs in the property at the rear of the villa, that were quite annoying at times throughout the day.
