We enjoyed being close enough to the sea to hear the waves and watch the sun set over the horizon. The area is away from the crowds but close enough to good shopping facilities.
We did need a car for shopping, because a storm a few weeks before we arrived had destroyed a section of the coastal promenade preventing pedestrian access to the Madeira Forum and Centro do Mar. Hopefully it will be restored before too long.
Access to the island's expressway network is easy, enabling us to get quickly to a wide variety of levada and mountain top walks. The weather was very kind with sunshine, clear skies (even on the mountain tops) and temperatures in the low 20s all week. Excellent walking weather.
The apartment is spacious and comfortable. It has a very well equipped kitchen, and the free WiFi and UK channels on the TV enabled us to keep in touch with happenings in the UK and even to follow our favourite programmes!
Miguel, the local agent, was very welcoming and helpful.
We would stay here again.
