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.

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.
