An easy walk down to the Old Town and shopping districts - much harder walk back uphill but one bus brings you to the door and 3 more drop you just around the corner for a short downhill stroll back! Some dog noise overnight but it certainly did not stop me sleeping better than I have in years, and evenings on the balcony looking over the harbour with a glass of something were thoroughly enjoyed. Sietske is exemplary in her communications and the information provided at the house was comprehensive. In Sietske's absence we were met at the house by her friend Pauline who was also very welcoming and helpful. We would be very glad to stay here againg when we next get over to Madeira.

Spacious & everything you could possibly require from a holiday home. Definite home from home. Decorated beautifully for Christmas with a tree & all other welcomeing extras. Even dressings gowns were available. Wonderful outside space with views over the sea & very secure. Mirela. Who,looked after us, could not have been more helpful. Raphael, our taxi driver, who was recommended by Karen & Mike the owners, (who were online to help us if necessary, friendly & easy to deal with.) He was there the greet us at the airport & was extremely helpful when our departure flight was cancelled. To be honest there is always a down side when writing a review, which was we only booked a week & it should have been two.
