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.
I have business interests in the UK, Germany, Ireland and now Portugal. My favorite business location is however, Portugal (The Algarve). Why, because the sun shines for 330 days a year, the climate is mild all year round, the food is really very good and the people are so friendly.
Villa Marianna was the first Property I purchased in the Algarve in 2003. I was lucky because we purchased the Villa whilst it was under construction so we were able to make many modification that made this Villa 'very special'. I have 5 children that are now almost grown up and find that if they play together they stay together. Villa Marianna does just that.
Villa Marianna has two terraces. The Pool Terrace and the Kitchen Terrace. Usually, the Mums and Dads are to be found on the Kitchen Terrace and the Children on the Pool Terrace, although the two terraces are connected by the Villa Kitchen and Lounge so safety is not compromised
