Thebaida do Massapez a beautiful villa with amazing views

5 of 5
My partner & I stayed for a week in early September. Emanuel met us when we arrived late on the Friday evening and nothing was too much trouble to help us settle in. The villa was clean comfortable and beautifully situated with amazing views over the West Coast - and truly stunning sunsets. I agree with previous comments - rent a medium sized car as the drive is steep and requires a strong clutch! To be honest you probably need a similar sized car to cope with the local hairpin bends anyway. If you're a nervous driver - then ask someone else to drive. We drove around most of Western Madeira and had a couple of forays to the North coast where the climate was MUCH cooler. The whole island is full of amazing sub tropical plants - which I guess explains the " floating garden" description. I was fascinated by the geography & geology of the island - but most people I am sure would just be happy with the climate & views! Make sure you visit the Bar Precipio which is the nearest watering hole. There is no menu - just fresh fish of the day with salad, but it had a view over Paul do Mar to die for and to be honest it was the best fish we ate in the holiday. I cannot recommend the villa or region enough - it is truly beautiful. Daryl & Rob

The property met all of our expectations

5 of 5
We loved staying at the cottage, it exactly as it is described, the views from the balcony and roof terrace are fabulous. It has all the equipment and facilities that we required and was very clean. The owners were very nice and helpful, they were available whenever if you required them you just had to ask but otherwise your privacy was respected and you were left alone. They gave good advice about walks, restaurants, bars and places to visit . We would recommend the cottage to anyone who likes a quiet life in a village not full of tourists. We would definitely visit again. Mr and mrs ellis - West Yorkshire England
