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.

Wir haben 5 traumhafte Tage in diesem Paradies an der Algarve verbracht. Das Haus liegt unglaublich schön im ruhigeren Hinterland, aber in nur 20 Minuten ist man in Taviara mit allen Einkaufsmöglichkeiten und herrlichem Strand. Das Haus selbst ist sehr großzügig, sehr sauber und gepflegt mit sehr schöner Garten- und Poolanlage. Im Garten wachsen Zitronen und Orangen, Feigen und Trauben ... Ein wahres Paradies, das man eigentlich nie mehr verlassen möchte. Vielen Dank an die Eigentümerin Marja für die nette Kommunikation und an Elizabeth, die wunderbare Betreuung vor Ort. ALLES PERFEKT!
