Everything was very clean, comfortable and homely with everything we needed for our stay. For us, the location was perfect, quiet and semi-rural, and a great base for exploring all aspects of the island. The welcome pack was a lovely suprise after a long journey. Thank you!

I'd spent a very long time choosing Na Colina - because of taking my 90yr old mother to an island built on the side of a mountain I needed somewhere that didn't involve steep climbs twixt car parking, bedroom, bathroom etc. Jayne (the villa's owner) was really helpful beforehand - quick to respond to my endless questions on email. Baaaad journey from the uk when the plane couldn't land and had to be diverted; however, the sainted Catarina waited up until nearly midnight to welcome us into an amazing house where she had provided emergency hot food, cold wine and the reassurance that she could help with any and everything for the rest of our holiday. We shopped, cooked (fantastically equipped kitchen) and ate in every lunchtime. The supermarket in Calhetta on the sea front sells good cheap wine, clams, great fresh veg and Madeira cake. Then scoured TA for cafes in the evening; by FAR the best of which was Bar O Ideal in Punto do Mar. Altogether had an excellent break thanks to the wonderful house, the peaceful pool, the location, and Catarina's generous efficiency.
