Teva was excellent showed us everything and gave us some tips, the people are the friendliest we have met and the owners were really friendly ( Thank you Philip and Kate). We will definitely go back to Madeira and this villa if it is available, this was one of the best and most relaxing places we have visited.

Jorge est un propriétaire sympathique et discret. Nous avons pu voir dauphins et baleine au départ en bateau de Calheta. Malgré la proximité d'une voie rapide, l'ensemble reste calme et reposant.
