A beautiful, quite location, yet close enough to drive to all the tourist attractions. It is exceptionally clean and comfortable and very spacious for us and our 2 boys aged 11 and 13. The pool area and the balconies make you feel like a Hollywood 'A' lister !!! Great photo opportunities !! The owner, Bill, is very helpful and includes lots of info about the villa and Madeira when booking. The local restaurant, Naye Pizza, does great food and the pizzas are out of this world. There is also a small supermarket just down the road. Walking up the road to the little café for coffee and ice creams will keep you fit - the roads are steep in Madeira !! You will not regret booking this villa for your next holiday.

The villa has a luxurious feel to it, very clean and finished and furnished to a high specification. The outside and pool area is beautiful and the views are breath taking! In summary, we had a lovely relaxing stay and Jeorge was a wonderful host. thanks!

                                                                                                    4 of 5
                                                                                                    The villa's elevated location provides a stunning view of the local area and the Atlantic Ocean beyond. The house is comfortable and well equipped with modern conveniences. TV has all the major UK channels available. The property benefits from an alarm system. The pool's greenhouse type cover is a bit worse for wear but very effective providing pool temperatures consistently higher than the June average air temperature. The garden is well stocked and includes a number of the beautiful bird of paradise flowers. The property's pool/BBQ/garden area is private but not secluded. It is overlooked from a tree line above (very rare). Also from the Levada which although a small waterway has a footpath running along side it. The Levada is located about three metres below the length of the rear of the property before turning sharply right and incrediblly running up hill for 300 metres to disappear around a bend. However, anyone walking down the Levada path towards the property can see into the garden, but not the pool. The path is fairly well used particularly in the mornings, evenings and at weekends. Access route to the villa is mostly on steep country roads which in places are very narrow. A car with a medium size engine is required.
