                                                              Lovely holiday - we visited in winter and the pool could of been warmer and it felt slightly damp in some rooms but that said the owners were lovely, were prompt to rectify any issues. View is stunning and it's so quiet. Funchal is about 25 mins by taxi but local towns 10 mins away. Great place to stay .

                                                              The views from this villa are lovely - the terraces look over mango and papaya orchards onto banana plantations on the opposite side of the valley, and all the way down to the ocean. The climate of Madeira is very variable, but I think this villa enjoys the best of it, being in the warm, tropical zone. We enjoyed perfect weather throughout our visit. Waking to the peace and fresh air of the countryside in a bedroom with French doors onto the terrace is delightful and it's so lovely to sit in the shade of the terrace that there is no particular need to go out and about every day. There are plenty of restaurants, cafes, wonderful bakery and dramatic scenery nearby, while Funchal is approximately 15 minutes away by car. The villa and its views suited our needs perfectly, and we had an absolutely wonderful holiday here. Manuel and Rita are the kindest, most generous and considerate of hosts, and this is apparent in the comfort, convenience and beauty of the grounds, the villa and it's spotlessly clean and comfortable interior. The kitchen is extremely well equipped and is further supplied with a good provision of basic groceries, making self-catering easy and pleasurable. I use a wheelchair and found the spacious interior and wheelchair access around the house and terraces to be perfect. The property is easily accessed by a well-surfaced road, and there is sufficient parking for several cars. I cannot recommend this property highly enough, and thank Manuel and Rita sincerely for their warmth and kindness to us during our visit.
