It has great views out to the surrounding coastline and mountains, and a great pool. The manager Jorge is very approachable and helpful, nothing is too much trouble. Do not hesitate to book this villa you wont regret it!

It is immaculate throughout with everything you might need. A great shower, comfy sofa and a huge terrace to sit and enjoy the panoramic view. Gary was very helpful and friendly too. This is quiet spot so if you are looking for nightlife, it's not the right place. You will need a car too to properly explore the area. However, if a chilled out holiday with peace and tranquillity is what you need, then this is the right place! We will definitely be back!

It is in a really good spot that is quiet and has fantastic views of the coast at Calheta. The villa is well maintained and well equipped with some new appliances. The kids really enjoyed the pool and were in and out of it several times most days. We would recommend this villa and would definitely return.
