It was very clean and everything looks fresh! The BBQ area is lovely- an absolute sun trap. Perfect for relaxing . Miguel pre heated the pool for us and was very helpful. We have had such a great time that we have already booked our next 2 holidays in the same villa. We highly recommend this.

Although we experienced some rain it was relaxing to stay in the villa overlooking the ocean. We found the scenery spectacular and managed to see a lot of the island. A welcome relief from the British winter! We hope to return again .

Access is via a path which incorporates a lot of steps so not ideal with heavy luggage. Car parking is on the road which is a cul-de-sac so there is very little traffic. The villa is very spacious with large rooms, all of which face south-west towards the sea. The lower floor is open plan with a sitting room and a well-equipped kitchen and dining area. There is also a small toilet. The two bedrooms upstairs have en-suite bathrooms and balconies. Due to the south-west orientation, the afternoon sun shines directly on the balconies and the terrace so they are ideal for sitting and eating or doing a spot of sunbathing. Paul, the manager, is very helpful and gave us a lot of advice on local facilities and excursions. A car is probably essential because the village shop appears to be closed and the nearest supermarket is about 10 minutes away in Calheta. There are, however, a number of restaurants and cafes in the village.
