Five minute walk from Garajau 'high street' which is a little bit 'tired' but had more than enough cafe/ bars and restaurants for our 11 night stay. Very good mix of tourists from the large hotel and the friendly local people. Joao is an excellent informative manager , nothing was too much trouble, he even sorted taxi transfers to and from the airport with our great driver 'Nuno' Funchal is not far away and definitely worth a visit, make sure you walk down the hill from the villa to Christ Rio and then get the cable car downtown the beach.

                                                                                                      5 of 5

The balcony was enormous - plenty of room for four, and it got the sun all day. Garajau is a great location - but more of a village feel than Funchal, which is only 15 minutes on the bus. Lots of good cafes and places to eat. Try Ravioli for the fresh pastries. Highly recommended.
