Wonderful villa, wonderful location

5 of 5
I cannot fault the villa. It was spacious, well equipped and clean. The location is wonderful offering fabulous views and we enjoyed being able to join the Levada just below us. With lots of room in the garden and a great pool, we spent many days simply enjoying the villa. Jeanne and Peter were excellent to deal with and extremely accommodating of our late arrival and departure times. I wouldn't hesitate to recommend Casa Rochinha.

What a setting

5 of 5
Jardim do Mar must be the most attractive village on the South Coast and this property is supremely situated overlooking the rocky beach. Unlike many houses in Jardim you can drive right up to it and It has its own garage. The villa is very well equipped although a couple of extra mugs would be welcome. The situation of the pool is to die for. Behind the property in the hills you can watch the farmers harvesting bananas grapes and other fruit/veg. There is a cafe/bar just in front of the house, although there is very little noise and it closes by 11:00. However on one night noisy young men were shouting down by the jetty for a couple of hours in the middle of the night, but I don't know whether we were just a bit unlucky, and obviously not something the owner can do anything about. Communication with Andre was excellent, although we did not meet him. His very friendly mother and grandmother welcomed us to the house and showed us around. Highly recommended.
