We chose this appartment after a lot of reseach as we wanted some relaxation and the opportunity to chill. We were not disappointed. It is nicely located above a couple of resorts ( 10 minute drive). Funchal is also easily reached. We did a fair bit of walking along the Levadas and coast. Gary and Glenys (hosts) were unobtrusive but always at hand to answer our questions. As long as you're prepare to drive there can't be many better apartments on the whole of the Island. We will return.
