About Johnny Bjelkaroy
I am a dentist living in Funchal for the last 30 years. In fact I have been living more time in Madeira than anywhere else. I was born near Bergen, Norway, where I graduated. Later I worked in Denmark and Lebanon, before settling down in this beautiful island. Here I work as a dentist, but do rural tourism and local tourism as a hobby. I am one of the founder of the association for rural tourism in Madeira, Madeira Rural.
Johnny Bjelkaroy purchased this bungalow in 1996
Why Johnny Bjelkaroy chose Garajau
Madeira is the island of eternal spring. We really do not have any winter, compared to the rest of Europe. The beauty of the island, the climate and the warmth of its people makes it the best place to stay and visit. Villa Echium is named after the plant Echium, or the Pride of Madeira, a flowering, endemic bush that you will find in our garden, behind the fish pond.
What makes this bungalow unique
This property is near everything but still away from it all. It is in a quiet area among other posh villas. Near enough the main roads, but separate and free of noisy traffic.
