Lovely villa in great location

  • 5 of 5

The villa is situated at the top of a hill with lovely views across the valley to the sea. It was very peaceful and quiet with the loudest noise being the birds visiting the garden. We had a very warm welcome to the villa by the local property manager Elizabeth who had arranged some essential supplies to be available on arrival. We enjoyed our stay immensely. We made use of the various outdoor seating areas to relax, eat and enjoy the views. We would recommend this villa for those that want to get away from it all but still be only 20 minutes away from the beautiful beaches of the Eastern Algarve. We hope to return.

Beautiful house with amazing view

  • 5 of 5

This house is just perfect - comfy, nice pool, very nice garden, one of the best view in Algarve. Its very well equipped, things you would buy yourself for your dream holiday, much better then you could expect from a rented house. Its not too far from very charming Tawira. We can't wait to come back.

A beautiful comfortable villa with amazing views

  • 5 of 5

Villa Casa Marja is in a very quiet location but not far from local amenities, it is very well equipped and in a great position with stunning views - we felt very relaxed and at home.

Elizabeth was a great help and gave us lots of useful information to help us during our stay, we hadn't been to the Eastern Algarve before but we are very impressed with the area. We like the quieter less tourist and busy areas so June was a good time of the year to visit . The Ria Formosa coastline is very beautiful , we really liked Tavira and also some of the smaller fishing villages along the coast, like Santa Luzia and Fuzeta, where we found some lovely restaurants and cafe bars which were excellent value.

The weather in the first week of our stay was cooler than normal for June, but that enabled us to do some travelling around, the last few days were much warmer and so a swim in the pool was even more enjoyable!

We hope to return to your beautiful villa one day soon and will certainly recommend it to friends and family.

Superb family villa with stunning views

  • 5 of 5

From the minute we booked this villa through to the end do our holiday, both the owner and the villa were superb. The villa is excellent in every department. The pool, the gardens and the extensively equipped home are perfect to allow for a relaxing and comfortable holiday. The attention to detail ensures that there is everything you would need for a family holiday, including additional towels for the pool. The villa is immaculate and tastefully decorated to a very high standard. The location is stunning and is only a short drive from the local the beaches and towns.

All in all you could not wish for a better place to stay.

Our stay at Casa Marja has been incredible!

Our stay started well even before our arrival. Marja answered to all of our questions weeks earlier, gave us precious indications and was very attentive to our needs.

When we arrived to "Casa Marja" we've discovered a very welcoming house, where we felt at home as soon as we entered it. The house is relaxing and comfortable, and thanks to the air conditioning it is fresh and cool when the temperature is really high outside.

We also loved the kitchen and barbecue! We had everything we needed to prepare good meals and enjoy them in one of the 3 terraces of the house (yes there are 3 terraces, one for each mood :) ).

The pool was necessary and very refreshing in the August warmth of the Algarve. Finally we have to highlight the panoramic view, that is absolutely gorgeous, by day and night.

In other words, we really enjoyed our week there, we wish we could have stayed longer, and definitely recommend it.

Un petit coin de paradis

  • 5 of 5

Nous avons passé une chouette semaine à Casa Marja, loin de tout .....idéal pour se ressourcer!

Nous avons profiter d'une vue panoramique exceptionnelle et du calme de cet endroit retiré.

La villa est vraiment spacieuse, aucun problème de place pour 6, tout confort. La réalité est encore mieux que sur les photos ;)

Le contact avec la propriétaire et la manager fut très chaleureux, nous sommes accueillis comme des amis.

Un endroit à visiter! Et sûrement y retourner!

We had a great week in Casa Marja, far from everything.....great for relaxing.

We enjoyed an exceptional panoramic view and the quietness of this place

The villa is really spacious with all modern conveniences. The reality is even better than some pictures ;)

The contact with the owner and the manager was warm , we were received as friends!

A place to visit and surely going back !
