Solmar Villas has increased its turnover by 28% to just over £25m this year, creating 16 new jobs as it celebrates its 25th anniversary.

The company said it has seen demand for its premier range increase as it directs attention to the quality of its properties which are largely located within walking distance of local beaches, restaurants and bars.

Solmar has a successful partnership with budget carrier Jet 2 and it has added resorts, including Croatia, Rhodes and Zakynthos, to its portfolio in 2018 with a further three locations set to come online in 2020.

Solmar Villas’ managing director Julie Blake said: “The company has seen consistent and sensible growth over the years, with turnover increasing from just £4m to over £25m in the last ten years.

“Our approach is all about quality and customer service, hand-picking every villa in our portfolio so that we know the property and the location is perfect for great holidays. This is something we want to continue as we embark on the next stage of our growth.”

Now employing 55 people, Solmar Villas currently offers over 580 properties across the Balearic Islands, Canary Islands, Cyprus, Croatia, Greece, Italy, Mainland Spain, Malta, Portugal and Turkey.

The company is now planning to increase sales over the next 12 months, with Istria, Tenerife and Madeira set to be included on its list of destinations in 2020.
