Welcome to Casa Mariano.

A short stroll from the villa will take you into the picturesque village of Paderne with its quaint shops, restaurants and famous Moorish Castle Ruins.
The villa is set in fully enclosed mature gardens with palm trees, oleanders and lavander which are illuminated in the evening with attractive garden lighting. A brand-new 10m x 5m Italian mosaic-tiled private pool has an underwater light for night time swimming and acts as a lovely backlight to the terrace and gardens. The pool has a shallow end for children with easy walk-in steps. The entire terrace and pool area has superb views across the valley and fruit orchards and the castle ruins can also be viewed in the distance.
*Pool-heating (optional). You cannot beat swimming under the stars in a warm pool! Heated to a constant 30 degrees.
There are three large bedrooms plus a fourth smaller-sized bedroom. Two bathrooms:
* The master bedroom features a romantic double brass bed and has a beautiful ensuite bathroom with a walk-in shower, W.C and wash-basin. Patio doors lead out onto the front lawn, palm tree, gardens and swimming pool.

A Little Piece Of Heaven
A Little Piece Of Heaven
Having read the listing description and viewed the photos we emailed the owners to see if at short notice the villa was available. a quick reply confirming yes together with further helpful advice following a further email from us meant that we went ahead and booked. car hire was arranged through the owners and their directions from the airport were clear. we were met by the owners about a mile from the villa and then followed them the remaining distance to the villa which was set back and well hidden from the road. We were given an extensive guide to the villa. shown how to operate appliances etc and then followed them to the local supermarket to stock up on our provisions before the owners left us knowing that they were only at the other end of a phone if we needed anything. with the villa being everything the description said the daytime was spent relaxing by the pool, only breaking to have something to drink or eat or having a dip in the pool or playing darts or table tennis. backed up by a mini library and an extensive cd collection to suit every taste there was plenty to read and listen to as well as keeping up to date with home news and sport on the tv. evenings were spent seeking out local restaurants of which there were ample within a 10 minute drive. many more restaurants and bars were available within the main resort of albufeira which was only 15 minutes drive away. All too soon our 6 night stay was over. Thanks once again to the owners for their efficiency and help. The property and area exceeded our expectations and we would have no hesitancy in returning ourselves or recommending their "Little Piece of Heaven" to anyone else

Wonderful Villa, wonderful location, wonderful owners!
Wonderful Villa, wonderful location, wonderful owners!
This villa is in a wonderful location, very peaceful and tranquil with only a short drive to the main tourist centers, so essentially you get the best of both worlds. The bedrooms are all very spacious and the living/dinning area is large too. The kitchen is very new and is very well stocked with pretty much all you could need! The owners are wonderful people, very helpful and attentive to any needs we had. This villa was perfect for my family and if we visit the Algarve again we would stay here!!
