Wonderful stay in paradise

5 of 5
I can hardly express how wonderful this place is: breathtaking views over the city (Calheta) and the Atlantic Ocean, spotless and spacious rooms, a beautiful terrace to relax and to enjoy the sunset, ping-pong and pool table in the basement and last but not least the infinity pool on the first floor. We wished, we could stay there forever ! Blue Ocean Villa combined with the gorgeous hiking trails following the "Levadas" and the pleasant climate (23°C at day, 20°C at night) makes up for the perfect vacation. We were provided with a great info package by Bill, the owner, that included everything one needs to know. Some words of advice: except for the highways, streets in Madeira are very narrow, steep and rarely straight. We arrived in Funchal at 9:00 pm and rented a car to get to the Villa in the dark. We probably would have been lost without a GPS. However, use the exact GPS coordinates from the info package to get there and not the address !

Great views - wonderful home

5 of 5
Just wanted to say thank you very much to Jorge and Fatima for letting us stay at their wonderful home. The villa has been renovated to a very high standard yet still feels very homely. Very well equipped with anything you would need. Jorge and Fatima responded immediately to the modern day emergency of the wifi which needed rebooting :-) - they were very hospitable and on hand for any questions. Overall we had a fantastic week at Casa Lira and would definitely stay again. Thanks again.
