Lovely clean modern villa

5 of 5
Had a great stay at the villa. Enjoyed the panoramic views of the sea from every window. The hosts are very welcoming and helpful and the generous welcome basket of local produce with the best honey cake I have tasted was very much appreciated. A great place to stay to explore Madeira - although some days we just stayed at the villa enjoying the villa, sun, views and pool. The villa faces west so has great sunsets over the sea but no morning sun. However, Calheta beach, viewable from the villa at the bottom of the hill, is a great place to have breakfast, have a morning dip and catch the early morning sunshine - was never busy. The villa is very private and quiet and overall is excellent and I would recommend a stay here!

We had a magnificent stay in the Palheiro Cottage

5 of 5
Every aspect of the stay was perfect. The friendliness and attentiveness of the hosts. The furniture, the perfection of the installed equipment, ..... The nice panoramic location. There is one comment; not necessarily negative: The steep narrow access road is challenging for the driver.
