About Des Markland

We are a couple with four children who've had many unforgettable holidays in Espartal. We've found it to be excellent for all ages as it has the river (great for younger children) and the beach which with the bodyboarding and surfing is exciting for older children. We love the sense of calm and being close to nature living in the Costa Vicentina national park. We live in England but our life has become more complicated with our children growing up and the arrival of grandchildren and so in 2015 we decided to rent out the villa during the summer months so that other families could enjoy the same wonderful holidays as us.

Des Markland purchased this villa in 2002

Why Des Markland chose Aljezur

Although we live in England our family is half Portuguese and so our main reason for buying the villa was so that we could have lengthy holidays in Portugal with family and friends. We loved the area so much that we subsequently bought another house called Casa do Rio (Homeaway ref. number 6481916 ) in a small condominium in Espartal. Since 2015 we have also made this property available for rent.

Increíble casa en un increíble lugar

  • 5 of 5

La casa es muy completa y espaciosa. La encontramos en perfecto estado y fue muy fácil toda la comunicación con los dueños. Para ir a cualquier sitio es recomendable tener coche pero está todo realmente cerca (2 minutos de Monte Clérigo). El lugar es de los más bonitos que he estado en mi vida. Realmente, si te lo estás pensando...ya estás tardando 😜.

Muchas gracias Des y Helena!!
