The owners have really done this villa out to high standard and thought of everything. We have had a wonderful week and would highly recommend this property. We had a car which I would recommend, and it was a short hop to Funchal and within 30/40 mins to various attractions on the island.

Apartment had everything you could have possibly asked for and Brian was at hand if any issues where to occur. Thankfully we didnt even call him in the end. Ticked all the boxes.
