The Algarve region

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.


"Villa Grande do Sol" is located just outside the picturesque town of Porches where many Restaurants and Bars are located for those long summer evenings. The town and beaches of Armcao De Pera is just a few minutes away by car towards the coast road.

The picture-postcard village of Porches lies just off the EN125 main road, midway between Alcantarilha and Lagoa. The area is noted for its classic white regional-style houses punctuated with striking decorated chimneys.


Portugal, and in particular, the Algarve, is renowned for its magnificent Golf Courses which is why it is considered a golfer's paradise. There are many courses within easy reach of Vila Marianna such as The Pinta and The Gramacho courses at neighbouring Carvoeiro. There's also the championship course of Penina just a ten minute drive away. Keen golfers' find that the location of this Villa ideal to combine both a beach and golfing holiday and it also works well for partners and families who do not participate in the sport.

Special Interest Holidays:

Diving - Fishing - Horse Riding - Paragliding - Sailing - Tennis - Water Skiing and Windsurfing are all pursuits that are available in close proximity to the Villa.

"left disppointed"

Not a good start, was allowed into villa 2 hours after agreed time, understand last guests left it a mess but 2 cleaners to clean such a large villa in a short turnaround is clearly not enough. Not one safe worked, air con in one bedroom broken, the study we had to use for a bedroom had only a curtain for a door. Villa could do with an update. Main concern was that the pool was not cleaned on changeover day. We had to wait 3 days into our 7 days. Also there was a big ant problem around the pool. Good points, local beach beautiful.

"A slight let down"

Well we travelled as a family of 16 back in August. We booked a year ago and were all super, super excited. The booking process was fine and I had a lot of communication with the owner. When we arrive… More

The only issue raised with me as the Villa Owner was the issue regarding the Maid Service. All the other issues were only drawn to my attention by this 'review'. To evidence this I follow with a copy of the e-mail I recieved from the client on August 28th that reads as follows: 'Thanks Alfred, much appreciated, as I said before we loved the villa and that (the maid issue) was our only "blip"
