Third time we have stayed and love the place

5 of 5
The apartment is very spacious with everything we needed for a brilliant holiday. Balcony enormous with great views of the pool, sea and cliffs. Airport bus direct to the door. Bus service from road above apartment good. Can walk easily to the beach and nice walk along the coast to Camara de Lobos. Pool great and sea just over the wall. Tempted not to tell how good it is so that we can have it for ourselves. Great place to stay.

Everything we hoped for.

5 of 5
We spent a week at the apartment, Quinta Victoria. The location was excellent. The apartment is luxorious and was fully equipped and very clean. We received a nice " welcome pack" which gave a good clue that these people cared about us having a nice time. Our arranged transfer to and from the airport was excellent as was our greeting at the apartment by Rita. We had a great holiday and would have no hesitation in recommending this apartment and Madeira.
