I can hardly express how wonderful this place is: breathtaking views over the city (Calheta) and the Atlantic Ocean, spotless and spacious rooms, a beautiful terrace to relax and to enjoy the sunset, ping-pong and pool table in the basement and last but not least the infinity pool on the first floor. We wished, we could stay there forever !
Blue Ocean Villa combined with the gorgeous hiking trails following the "Levadas" and the pleasant climate (23°C at day, 20°C at night) makes up for the perfect vacation. We were provided with a great info package by Bill, the owner, that included everything one needs to know.
Some words of advice: except for the highways, streets in Madeira are very narrow, steep and rarely straight. We arrived in Funchal at 9:00 pm and rented a car to get to the Villa in the dark. We probably would have been lost without a GPS. However, use the exact GPS coordinates from the info package to get there and not the address !
We had a wonderful fortnight in this lovely villa. The owner Emmanuel was helpful and welcoming and the housekeeper Maria is friendly and does a super job. We were glad we hired a diesel car (a Peugeot 308) as the driving in Madeira is a challenge on the hilly roads. The villa is spacious with two generous bedrooms and 3 bathrooms. The pool is lovely, kept spotless by the owner and has ocean views. We had such a lovely relaxing break here the location is so peaceful and relaxing a real get a way from it all location. There are some beautiful levada walks in easy reach and some stunning scenery. In nearby Calheta we found a great supermarket and we booked a fantastic trip to watch whales and dolphins. Funchal is easily accessible by car and we loved the cable car to Monte. Thank you Emmanuel we loved your beautiful villa
