Madeira Made Easy

5 of 5
This little story will tell you all you need to know about Hugo the superb host. Our flight was three days late in arriving because of high winds. To compensate, Hugo arranged for us - at his expense - a long taxi excursion of Funchal, pointing out all the must-see sights. Throughout our stay he was ever attentive and helpful. One day he turned up with delicious bread and as we were leaving he presented us with terrific farewell gifts. In the meantime he told us to make free with his well-stocked drinks cabinet. The apartment is splendid and the view from the large balcony is something special. There is also a beautiful enclosed patio with lots of flowers and shrubs. Hugo really spoils his guests and he most certainly enriched our holiday. Just by the way, do visit the Londres restaurant. Glorious food and the house red is rather special.

Wonderful stay

5 of 5
We had as a family, 10 adults and 11 children a wonderful time in a great villa. Everything was top. Plenty of space, the location, the terrace and Santa Cruz. And an amazing view. For a wonderful stay we all recommand (big and small) this place. Fam. van der Want (A3)
