Villa was easy to find, spacious and in good area for visiting sites. Maids, pool guys and gardener were very friendly and did not know they were there.

A very clean and well kept villa in a quiet location. A well stocked kitchen and the pool and garden well maintained.  we found it too far to walk into Porches so a car is essential.  Overall a very enjoyable stay.

Mrs Wilson , July 2023

Wonderful Villa. Amazing pool and location. Can’t wait to come back.

Mrs McKenna , July 2023

Lovely villa, loads of space for 6 people and a fabulous, large pool with loads of places to lounge, either in the sun or shade. Great welcome pack, so we didn’t need to go immediately shopping.  Quiet and private without feeling too remote. It is possible to walk into Porches village but we didn’t. Within 3 km of several lovely beaches.  All in all a really lovely holiday with our two grown up sons and their partners. 

Mrs Stirk, June 2023

Private, spacious enough for all 5 of us. Well equipped. Air con was wonderful. Spotlessly clean. Quiet location, but only 5 mins drive from large supermarket, restaurants and beach. Pool perfect size.

Mrs Everitt, July 2022

Large quiet villa surrounded by wildflowers in the spring. Easy walking in the area.

Mr Nickless, April 2022

We had a wonderful time at Villa Marco Polo. The pool is a great size for a family of 6. We particularly enjoyed the balcony overlooking the pool and the amazing views it came with.


Mr Collard, August 2021

We had a fabulous time at Villa Marco Polo. The location was superb, and the weather was incredible. We highly recommend this villa and Affinity Villas.
