Relaxation with the utmost quality

5 of 5
The apartment is the utmost in quality. 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.

Wonderful apartment and owner!

5 of 5
Can't fault this apartment! We arrived late due to delays and the owner was waiting to meet us. She had left us lovely bowl fresh fruit, local cake and cookies and was charming. The apartment is lovely with lots of space outside to relax. The terrace is extremely private and the views are amazing. Not far from airport but far enough not to hear or see and planes. Easy to get around and the local shops cater for all needs. Madeira Island direct were brilliant and answered all questions we had. A truly relaxing holiday and great find!
