Sun and Moon was the perfect spot for us to unwind and enjoy just being a family. Christina was marvellous ! The perfect mix between respect for privacy and nice attentions such as the fabulous meal when we arrived en the cooking in between. The best summer house we ever rented.

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.
