Nice and flexible on timing, both check in and out. Well equipped kitchen facilities. Outdoor BBQ area. Nice log fire inside if it should be chilly. Brilliant location to go walking - can walk the local levada without driving anywhere.

Walked to the local bars a couple of times, very reasonable and the service is so welcoming. This is our second time in Madeira and looking forward to the next.
