The villa has the greatest views of the village of Ponta da Sol, being just above the centre and gets sun all day until the sun sets over the sea. Easy to walk down the hill to garage where there is a great little supermarket. The lounge is hugh with big glass windows over looking the sea. Good location to get around the island. We arrived a day late due to the wind at the airport not allowing us to land, but Nelson was fine about it all. He was most helpful about everything we needed to know. Pity about the road that wraps around it on 3 sides. Can get a bit noisy in the front bedrooms. Feel there could have been a few more pots and pans in the kitchen but it has everything else you need. Loved our stay there. Wish it had been longer.
We spent 5 nights in Palheiro Cottage, and found it a very comfortable place to stay. Everything was clean and in immaculate condition and the kitchen well equipped. Jenny was very helpful, promptly supplying two heaters and an electric blanket when it turned cold in the evenings, and we really appreciated the welcome pack, with home-made jam, eggs, and a bottle of wine.
The cottage is well situated for the coast (a sheltered sea pool to swim in in Calheta) and Levada walks, and, being high up above the town, the views down to the sea are fantastic in all weathers. Although on a street with other houses the only noises to disturb us were those of barking and howling dogs. Parking is on-street, but there was never a problem finding a space. Our only problem really was the toilet, which cannot even manage toilet paper - we felt this meant it was not really fit for purpose.
