Beautiful views and fantastic villa

5 of 5
Wonderful villa and one of the best holidays we have had for a long time. Very well equipped villa and good layout or bedrooms and living space. The pool is fantastic and great outdoor space for sunbathing and eating. All with beautiful views from the mountains to the sea - in a 180 degree vista. Breakfast on the balcony was always a treat in the early sunshine. The villa was very clean and the games room is a real plus. The only thing we could suggest to improve would be some DVD's and games to play in the evening as the tv channels are a bit restricted. But that is a minor thing. We would thoroughly recommend the villa and Madeira.

Relaxing

5 of 5
Great villa in a quiet location with wonderful views out to the sea. This villa was well equipped with everything required for self catering.The pool was a good size and had a robotic pool cleaner. The villa was clean & tidy throughout & Jorge was most helpful & polite.The villa is only about 5/6mins from the harbour which has a well stocked supermarket & restaurants by the harbour.A car is essential as there are quite steep roads throughout the island.
