                                                            We had a fantastic time staying at this house - it had everything we needed for our stay. Plenty of room, inside & out and the garage was useful to keep the car cool out of the sun! Ana was very helpful, right from reserving the house to collecting the keys at the end of our stay. Madeira is full of lovely places to visit and this is a great base to do it from.

                                                            A beautiful villa

                                                            5 of 5
                                                            This is the best villa I have ever stayed in. Very spacious, very well equipped, and comfortable. The pool was exceptional, warm and a good length for swimming, and the water was salty rather than chlorinated which was a plus. The flowers around the terrace and the gardens were as lovely as in the photos. We hired a car and saw most of the island. We tried several restaurants but our favourite was the New Era in Calheta next to the marina, with good food, friendly service and also showed the Euros football in an inside room for those who were interested. Richard was very helpful to us in any queries we had. The only problem we experienced was noise from a nearby building site which prevented us from enjoying the terrace and pool on weekdays, so we had to go out in the car a lot more than we had planned to avoid the noise. This was very unfortunate as otherwise this would have been the perfect holiday destination. Once that building is finished I am sure it will become quiet and peaceful again. Madeira is a lovely green, beautiful and mountainous island, and I can thoroughly recommend it.
