However Mr & Mrs MelHuish were incredibly understanding and helpful. If I get the chance to visit madeira again there's no where else I'd rather stay. Many thanks

                                                                                                      5 of 5

Although on the main road of the village it was very quiet at night. Great little supermarket across the road and a wonderful bakery / cafe selling the most delicious breads and pastries. Excellent value for money and would recommend it to others however you should hire a car as it is not easy to get around otherwise. But the link onto the main highway is only a minute away and that connects you to the whole island. Funchal only about 25 minutes away and the beaches of Calheta about 20 minute drive
