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 27th March 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.

Enjoy a serene setting during your villa holiday in Vale de Parra. This quiet residential resort offers a relaxing retreat yet remains close to all the action along the Algarve's picturesque coastline. The pristine sandy beach in Gale is within easy reach, as well as the lively marina and buzzing night scene in Albufeira. Golf lovers are well-placed too, with many stunning courses dotted throughout the area.
This was our second stay at Villa Licinia since 2017. The villa is in a beautiful location with amazing views. The swimming pool is great but could do with the option of being heated. The bedrooms are spacious and air-con a real bonus. Since 2017 sun loungers, patio table & chairs have been updated along with a new handrail into the pool plus a new walk-in shower is great for those with mobility issues. Vale da Parra is a short walk away but car hire is a must if you need more amenities.

A well equipped Villa in a great location. We had lovely views of the sea and could walk to the beach within 30 minutes. A car was necessary as the location was reasonably isolated, but that assured a degree of privacy and that's what we wanted. Food stores beaches, restaurants and activities were all in a short driving distance, so the location of the villa did not restrict what we wanted to do. Swimming pool was relatively small for three teenage kids albeit that didn't prevent them utilising it at every opportunity. Definitely would book this Villa again

Very nice villa lovely location and fantastic view of coastline from balcony comfortable and well equipped the only downside was the pool looked a little dirty around the edges and was only cleaned two days before we went home , other than that would come back just for the view.

The villa is comfortable and clean with all necessary facilities. It is located in a quiet rural area but still only 10 mins to Gale beach or Guia in the other direction.

Wonderful spotless villa, great location, size and well kept gardens. Pool cold even in July so opt to heat.

Having visited the Villa Licinia some years ago (pre-facelift), we found it just as enchanting as previously. Everything we needed was there, everything in excellent condition. One tiny thing - the new, lovely kitchen is now located at a little distance from the dining area and pool area, so everything for meals needs to be carried out through the villa; previously the kitchen was very conveniently sited. Not a big problem though!

Villa was clean and well maintained inside and out and had everything you could want to make it comfortable! It is close to great bars and beaches but just enough out of the town to be brilliantly peaceful. Would definitely recommend

Great location for some fantastic beaches yet quiet and peaceful, away from it all.

Peaceful surroundings,clean ,well equipped. Just far enough from beach etc to need a car in my opinion.
