The highlight though was the villa itself - we felt like film stars!. The apartment is stylish, spotlessly clean and the view is to die for. Gary & Glenys were very welcoming and offered lots of advice on where to visit and where to eat. There were plenty of bars and restaurants to choose from all within a ten minute drive of the villa.

The apartment is very spacious and clean and feels more like a home than a holiday let and has a nice balcony with great views over the town and out to sea and the Marina. Manuel collected us from the airport (about 20 minutes drive) and was very friendly and informative about the Island, and dropped us off at the apartment where we met Rita the cleaner who gave us a tour of the apartment and building which was very helpful. The pool area is lovely and quiet too and a real bonus. It is just a 5-10 minute walk to both the old and new town areas. The only downside is the steep hill back to the apartment but you cant have everything and it did help with some much needed exercise after eating at the many excellent restaurants close by, particularly in the Old Town. We would recommend this apartment and Madeira in general. Five stars!

This apartment was ideal as it was right by everything you could need for a pleasant stay. The apartment itself exceeded our expectations - and had everything we needed and more. As a party of three, there was more an enough space and everything was of a very high standard. Both Anna the owner and Peter were both exceptionally helpful both during the booking process and during our stay. The apartment has the most stunning views and my husband and I enjoyed many a delicious coffee in the morning (thanks to the Nepresso machine) and a chilled sun-downer watching the view change over the sea - amazing!! We did the dolphin watching experience and coming down the mountain in the basket - both are must do attractions during your stay. Even though it was Feb, we saw several pods of dolphins and some parts of the coastline you would not get to see without a boat. Local restaurants (in Garajau) vary in quality and price - We visited Frango de G... and whilst the first visit was lovely the second was not as good and the food was average but expensive. Try the limpets wherever you eat (they're gorgeous) and the meat dishes are hearty and tasty too. But the taste sensation has to the scabbard fish sandwich (and my husband also enjoyed it with the banana). There is definitely more for us to experience in Madeira and we hope to come back next year.
