Absolutely beautiful

5 of 5
The villa is in a beautiful position overlooking the ocean and Funchal. Everything in the villa is pristine, fabulous bedrooms, shower rooms and kitchen. A week was not enough time to make the most of the villa & see all the sights so we will definitely be coming back.

Immaculate, tastefully decorated, in a good location

5 of 5
We were met at the airport by Andre, who guided us to the house. He gave us all the info we would need, together with best eateries, before showing us the nearest supermarket. The house was obviously a home rather than just a rental property and tastefully decorated. The bathrooms were a delight with their vintage tiles, giving real character to the house. The seawater pool was clean and refreshed weekly. The pool and garden were lovely and we enjoyed using the BBQ.
