About Sun-hat Villas & Resorts

At Sun-hat Villas & Resorts we know a thing or two about luxury. As a leading ABTA luxury rental agency we have let romantic boltholes, exclusive villas and spectacular modern properties to our customers over the years. And, we’re obviously doing something right because you keep coming back.

Sun-hat was founded in 2001 by experienced travel professional, Peter Jenkins, who sought to make customers’ holidays truly memorable. Along with his dedicated team, the aim was to put the customer’s needs and desires at the very heart of the business, focusing on individual needs and requirements. This became a reality, and with an eclectic range of luxurious villas on offer, Sun-hat soon became the first choice for superior private accommodation in The Algarve. Building on their success they are now delighted to include Tuscany, Barbados and Mallorca amongst their collection.



Meet the Team



Passionate about Portugal

Sun-hat’s story began in Portugal, when Peter worked for First Choice Holidays. Spending many weekends during the 1990s relaxing in the delightful Vale do Lobo, he realised the potential of the region. With breath-taking scenery, consistent wonderful weather and a collection of resorts and villas with first-rate facilities to rival anywhere in the world, Peter wanted to spread the word.

Since then the dedicated team at Sun-hat Villas & Resorts have passionately pursued luxury villas in the area, developing special relationships with the owners, who now come to them.

Although this is where Sun-hat’s journey began, the team have used all of their expertise to cultivate other territories, where their reputation is growing fast.  

What makes us special?

Apart from our ability to hand-pick luxury villas with excellent facilities, we offer a first-class tailored service. Using our extensive knowledge of the area with personal experience of our properties we help you find a villa that’s just right for you.
