Margarida made us feel very welcome and kindly let us stay past the check out time on our last day as our flight was leaving late. I thoroughly recommend it to those who enjoy charming old houses in interesting locations.

For us accomodation was just perfect. It was compact little house with everything we needed. Especially we loved big terrace and amazing wiew. We had all our breakfast and dinners outside. (we were very lucky with weather). House was wery well equipped and perfectly clean. There was also sugar and other spices, coffee etc. Little things but important when you are travelling. Host-couple was very nice and they really did their best to make you feel home. Thanks a lot Isabel and Manuel! We had rented a car and were exploring the whole beautiful island. We could find so many beautiful places, but still we were thinking that staying in Caloura in this summer house was the top choice for accomodation. We have been traveling quite a lot in Europe and hired different kind of houses. We are very happy to give 5 stars to lovely Bela Vila.
