In the early 1980s, founders John and Maria bought a two-bedroom apartment in Menorca and decided to rent it out. A few years later they purchased a three-bedroom villa and quickly began to help friends rent out their own properties too.
As the opportunities grew, John and Maria saw potential and in 1994, Solmar Villas was born! Family is still very much at the heart of Solmar Villas with John, Maria and their daughter Julie making Solmar Villas recognised as one of the leading villa holiday providers in the UK.
