Guestbook comments from the manager

Hello Mr Kingsnorth

I am just emailing you to let you know that we had a wonderful Xmas break at your villa.As you know we were a party of 8 from two seperate families and the vast areas of space suited our needs perfectly. I would also like to praise your managing agent and the maids service which was faultless.If we know of anyone looking to rent a very large villa in the Algarve we will have no hesitation in recommending Marianna Do sol.

We had a superb holiday the Villa Marianna was 'fantastic'. It had everything we needed and more! The kids loved the pool and the games room. I'm sure we will be making a return visit, this was our third trip to portugal at Easter and we all thought this was the best place we had stayed in.

Thanks again. Jane Bell.

Hi Alfred,

I would just like to thank you for the use of your Villa. We have had a wonderful holiday. We found the villa to be very well equipped especially in the kitchen. The kids loved the pool and the games room.

Lovely property if it did not have problems

The architecture, spaciousness and overall facilities are excellent, although not as they were described [the description, particularly of lack of air conditioning in basement, has now been changed]. Sadly, we experienced the villa with a blocked toilet when we arrived, further blockages during our stay, inability to contact the owner's local representative at key times, complete failure of all water supply, failure of hot water (once), frequent electrical tripouts, run down appearance (eg torn awning on kitchen terrace, untended flower bowls around the pool) and - adding insult to injury - long delays in responses from owner and delay in refund of Security Deposit.

Owner's Response: The contractors in attendance located evidence that sanitary towels and/or some similar item that include cotton wool substance, has been placed into the sewage system, causing the blockage. Two further instances occurred during the clients stay where our Villa Manager and our sewage contractor was required to attend and on each occasion they found further evidence of items having been placed in the sewage system that should not have. Notwithstanding the above circumstances, as a gesture of good will, I agreed to bring this matter to a close, by waiving the costs to unblock the sewage system on three occasions and refund their security deposit in full.

FANTASTIC

  • 5 of 5

We booked Villa Marianna for our 2016 holiday as it looked perfect for our three families of six adults and eight kids aged between 7 and 14. The bedrooms were brilliant, all large with an excellent ensuite. The facilities within the villa are second to none with so much space both internally and externally that even with 14 of us, we never felt like we were on top of each other. The kitchen and amount of crockery were brilliant and the appliances meant there was ample space for food storage and for preparation when we weren't eating out. The swimming pool was a great hit with all, especially the kids. Although the Villa is very much in between Porches and Amacao de Pera, they are only a few minutes drive away and the choice of restaurants is unbelievable. One in particular we enjoyed as a group was the Casa Algarve in Porches. It's very rustic and owned by an English couple and the food was absolutely superb.

All in all, we would recommend Villa Marianna to any small group of friends or families with kids. You won't be disappointed. We can't finish this review without mentioning Patricia the villa manager. Nothing was too much trouble for her and she was able to give us some great information about the area.

Thank you Alfred for allowing us to rent your superb Villa Marianna.

We booked the villa as a party of 4 couples with 7 children aged between 5 and 10. The layout worked perfectly - the adults had a double room each, the children all slept downstairs in the 2 bedrooms which also contained a sofa bed.

The kitchen is equipped with every device you can imagine with enough crockery etc to mean you didn't have to wait for the dishwasher to complete before feeding everybody again.

The outside terrace is amazing for having meals/barbeques which we did every night.

The pool (we paid to have it heated which was well worth the money) kept the children, and adults, occupied all day long.

The 2 fridges (plus a small one downstairs) provide more than enough space to keep everything chilled.

You will need to hire a car but this did not work out expensive and we found a company who would deliver to the property.

Close to some amazing beaches with lovely cafes and water slide park/zoo.

Sarah (villa manager) was a brilliant help and it was lovely to have the floors cleaned/towels changed during our stay.

We all agreed that this was the perfect villa for us and we are reviewing our holidays for next year as everybody wants to visit again.

One word - AMAZING!

Further Details:

Miles of gorgeous, golden, sandy beaches, calm clear waters and bays interspersed with rugged cliffs and enchanting grottoes; the Algarve is amongst the top European holiday destinations. The South of Portugal was the last place to gain independence from the Moors in 1292, conquered by the King Dom Afonso III and even today traces of the Moorish presence are visible in the unique terraces, chimneys and whitewashed villas. Despite the obvious influence of tourism, a short drive inland reveals the true Algarve where life goes on much as it has for many centuries. This brightly coloured region with orange groves, almond trees in blossom and fragrant pines is also the most verdant and fertile. Sports enthusiasts will find ideal conditions and top class facilities; the golf courses and tennis establishments have a highly prized reputation. Above all, the Algarve is a children's haven; several exciting water parks, surfing in Praia da Luz, horse riding near Lagos and, of course, plenty of chicken and chips! Whatever your preference; a secluded hideaway in the hills, a converted cottage in a traditional fishing village or a magnificent mansion in a sophisticated resort, we are certain that you will find your personal paradise in the Algarve.

Dear Alfred

We had a wonderful week in your Villa, everything was perfect and everyone of us had a fantastic holiday. Thank you for helping to make a dream come true. My mother who was celebrating her 70th birthday got a wonderful surprise and we got to swim with the dolphins as a bonus.

The weather was fantastic and the villa had everything and more to make our week so perfect. Thank you again.

I truly hope we will be able to go back to Porches one day and spend another wonderful holiday in your beautiful villa.
