The villa is everything we hoped for and all the fixtures and fittings are first class. We loved the view from the lounge and the patio and we never tired of looking out to sea. The surrounding are is very quiet and the scenery from every window made the holiday very special. I suppose we were bit worried before we went that living above the owners might make us feel as if we were intruding on someone's home life but Glenys and Gary are the perfect hosts . They manage to be both helpful and yet unintrusive and they are clearly suited to the job. They gave us great advice on where to go for a meal, where to walk etc and they couldn't be more helpful. It was our first visit to Madeira and we hope it won't be our last and we wouldn't hesitate to book the villa again. Come here if you want to explore Madeira and relax in a beautiful home . Don't come here if you are looking for bars etc on your doorstep. Nearby Ribeira Brava has everything you need . You can get to any part of the island easily enough from here. Enjoy.

Secure locked parking under the building with lift to the apartment. Lovely place to stay, clean, very modern, tastefully, and comfortably furnished. Had all the equipment we needed. A bowl of local grown fruit, cake and biscuits where a nice welcome gift. Ana, the owner, met us with the keys and gave us useful information about the local amenities. Close to reasonably priced restaurants and food stores. Easy drive to lots of places on the island although our 1.2 Corsa struggled a bit with some of the steep hills! It did the job but we will hire something a little more powerful next time! We loved Funchal, new year fireworks were epic! Loved the toboggans and tropical gardens at Monte. Went to the natural swimming pools at Porto Moniz. We braved the 17 degree water and enjoyed our December swim in the Atlantic! The faint hearted might rather do it in the summer!! Nice place though. We also enjoyed the Sky Walk which was free. Would recommend the Central Restaurant in Canico we were only in Medeira a week and we went twice! :)

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.
