This was our first (and won't be our last!) visit to Madeira. Elvio met us at the property as arranged (and thank you for letting us have entry ahead of schedule - it was much appreciated after an early morning flight!)
We were literally blown away at the quality of the house - every room is immaculate, with lots of wardrobe space, drawers etc. Everything has been thought of - from the pool towels, to the sewing kit in the kitchen drawer. The kitchen has a full range of utensils, pans etc - so if you enjoy cooking (as we do), you won't be disappointed.
This is the best equipped holiday home we have ever stayed in.
However, the best thing about the villa is its position - the view is absolutely stunning! Each evening we witnessed the most beautiful sunset over the sea - each one was different, but equally spectacular.
The pool area is spotlessly clean, with ample sun-loungers and chairs. Even though our holiday was at the end of October, we ate outside several times and managed to enjoy the barbecue.
The walks around the property are also amazing - we did walk down to Riberia Brava one afternoon for a sangria (the walk back up was certainly energising!)
You always hope for a home-from-home when you go on holiday - this beautiful home is that and so much more. A great deal of thought and consideration has gone into the design of this property and also into the furniture and equipment. You literally couldn't ask for any more.
We hope to return in the not too distant future. Thank you!
The cottage was very spacious inside as well as the grounds outside. Everything was clean and well kept.The view out to the Atlantic was excellent and we watched many sun sets.
We enjoyed our walks down to the harbour and the supermarket,but not always the very steep walk back.
We had a hire car but because the cottage and grounds were excellent we did not use the car much.
