                                                              Fabulous property and location

                                                              This is without doubt the best villa we have stayed in. Miguel was a wonderful host and it was great to get a private transfer from his cousin Tony from the airport to the villa via the supermarket. All of the furniture and fixings are of an extremely high standard and the location is amazing with exquisite views. We decided not to hire a car and it was easy to walk into Calheta although the walk back is uphill all the way. We are definitely planning a return trip! Craig, Vicki, Michael and Alison - July 2016

                                                              Beautiful villa in perfect location - couldn't have been better!

                                                              We had a wonderful stay in Casa das Flores - the villa was spotless and had everything you could need. The pool and sun lounger area was perfect and has the sun all day long - we were very lucky to have gorgeous weather all week. Vanda was lovely and really helpful and brought gifts of wine and Madeira cake which was a really lovely touch. The local village of Calheta was ideal as had the beach which my 3 year old niece adored and there is an Italian restaurant along the harbour front (I can't remember what it's called) which was absolutely fantastic and we went twice within the week! We would absolutely love to return one day and will defintely be booking longer than a week - it went much too fast! Thank you for a lovely stay in your perfect home!

                                                              Amazing villa and location.

                                                              The property was beautiful, clean and imaculate for our arrival. Superb views from ground floor and balcony, very peaceful. Zeza next door was so helpful with suggestions of places to eat and visit. We have now fallen in love Madeira and the villa and we are already planning our return visit next year. Highly recommend 🌞󗠽򐈀
