The nearest Restaurant is located at the top of the lane where our Villa is located. The Restaurant is inside the Dom Manuel Hotel and it is ideal for Breakfast and Lunch and it is inexpensive.

The Village of Porches is located no more than approximately half a mile as you turn right out of our lane. Porches is a very pretty sleepy Village with a handful of very nice Restaurants and Bars for that quiet evening. If you turn left out of the lane where our Villa is located for approximately one mile, you will reach the coast and the very lively coastal town of Armacao de Pera. Their are four or five very good restaurants along that road on both the right and left hand side of the road.

I would however recommend that you hire a car from time to time as their are some amazing beeches located along the coast. Also there are lots of places to visit such as Zoo Marine and the Water Parks so a Car would be an advantage, particularly with the Children in mind.


Dear Alfred
We had a wonderful week in your villa, everything was perfect and everyone of us had a fantastic holiday. Thank you for helping to make a dream come true. My mother who was celebrating her 70th birthday got a wonderful surprise and we got to swim with the dolphins as a bonus. The weather was fantastic and the villa had everything and more to make our week so perfect.

Thank you again.

I truly hope we will be able to go back to Porches one day and spend another wonderful holiday in your beautiful villa.

Dear Alfred,
We had a lovely time at the villa. We enjoyed the trips out to Zoomarine and Lagos Zoo where we had a fantastic meal in their restaurant. The beaches were wild but great for playing 'chicken' with the waves! We even experienced our first earthquake (probably only happens once in a lifetime) quite scary but pleased to say the villa is still standing! Thank-you for your pre trip advice and help it was invaluable. The management team and maid dealt with our problems quickly which was great. We would love to stay at the villa again, better get saving!!
Thank-you again, we really enjoyed our stay.
Kind Regards

Hello Mr Kingsnorth
I am just emailing you to let you know that we had a wonderful Xmas break at your villa.As you know we were a party of 8 from two seperate families and the vast areas of space suited our needs perfectly. I would also like to praise your managing agent and the maids service which was faultless.If we know of anyone looking to rent a very large villa in the Algarve we will have no hesitation in recommending Marianna Do sol.

We had a superb holiday the Villa Marianna was 'fantastic'. It had everything we needed and more! The kids loved the pool and the games room. I'm sure we will be making a return visit, this was our third trip to portugal at Easter and we all thought this was the best place we had stayed in.
Thanks again. Jane Bell.

Dear Alfred,
I would just like to thank you for the use of your Villa. We have had a wonderful holiday. We found the villa to be very well equipped especially in the kitchen. The kids loved the pool and the games room.

Dear Alfred
Once again both myself and my family had a great time staying at the Villa and I will be contacting you before the end of the year to arrange dates for next year, however we may like to try the new Villa that you purchased this year, I will let you know.
Once again, many thanks.
Regards. Samantha


Dear Alfred,
Yes, the villa was fantastic and we had a really great time. We were all very impressed with the quality of the property and facilities. We rent a villa every year and have done so for some years now in different countries but we were all quite in agreement that Villa Marianna Do Sol was the best so far by a long stretch! The air-con and fans in each room were just as described and provided just the right amount of relief from the outside temperatures (which were about 29C-30C each day).
The cleaner, Angela, (think I have the name right) was a lovely person who was very helpful and discreet about doing her work and looked after us very well.
By the way, we found a guitar shop in Portimao (there isn't one in the Algarve Shopping Centre) but my son kind of became attached to it and wanted to bring it home. Alfred, if we go back to Portugal again in the future (we try to visit different countries each year) we will almost certainly get back in touch with you.
Many thanks and kind regards

Thank you Alfred. I can confirm when it arrives if you like.

We had a wonderful time in the Algarve. The weather was incredible. Wish I had time to come back soon!!!!

Even more Client Comment!!!

Dear Alfred,
Thankyou very much for the stay at your beautiful villa we had a wonderful time and will recommend it to others.
Thanks very much again,
Alison Watts

Dear Mr.Kingsnorth,
What a delightful holiday our group of 8 Canadian women had at Villa Marianna! It was perfect accomodation for such a group on our first villa vacation. Although we found it a bit of a challenge to first find the villa after orienting ourselves it proved to be a very convenient location for our daily excursions around the Algarve and the Alentejo. Portugal is a wonderful country and we enjoyed its people and its sites.
Thank you once again on behalf of all of our group for a first rate villa enjoyed by all!
