We love it here, you will too!

Welcome to our Villa. Mi casa es su casa!

Our Story

In 2002 Marion and Ivan decided to leave the time pressured hustle of business life in the UK to explore another lifestyle in the quieter, slower pace of unspoiled southern Spain.  Never really holidayed or visited Spain previously it was all an adventure.  It had sun, sea and tradition.  We decided on a part of Spain where you didn’t even need to have central heating in the winter as it has its own micro-climate with less than 10 days of rain a year.  Our dream evolved on finding a wonderful property to develop into a fabulous holiday rental destination, close to amenities but far enough away to retain the peace and quiet to relax and enjoy some of the delights that Turre, Garrucha and Mojacar, in southern Spain, has to offer.

Villa Mariana was created in 2006 to offer all year round comfort in the knowledge that guests come back again and again to enjoy just a little bit extra in holiday accommodation.
