Guestbook comments from the owner

We have spent two fantastic weeks in the villa. It is very spacious, decorated in a charming manner and had everything we needed. Maria and Miguel are very friendly and spoilt us with delicious avocados, bananas, pastries and eggs when we arrived. Our children loved the rooster and chickens, and the toys in and outside the house. A great place for young and old!

Une semaine d'été dans une jolie maison au calme

  • 5 of 5

Nous avons passé une superbe semaine dans cette maison. Nous avons été très bien accueillis par Maria et Miguel qui nous avaient même prévu de quoi faire un repas à notre arrivée ( jamais vu cela en France... )

La maison est grande, agréable, claire, calme...Entourée de verdure ( bananiers...) En face de l'océan. L'endroit est propice pour partir faire de jolies balades. Miguel et Maria avaient d'ailleurs prévu une carte et tous les dépliants touristiques !

Je garde bien cette adresse et ne manquerait pas de la communiquer à mes amis.

Encore merci Maria et Miguel.

Superbes vacances

  • 5 of 5

Nous avons passé de superbes vacances dans cette incroyable maison. Nous étions un groupe de 11 personnes (7 adultes, 2 enfants et 2 bébés), et nous y étions tous très bien.

Cette maison est pleine de charme, juste en face de la plage.

et à proximité de départs de très belles randonnées.

Je recommande cette maison à tous !

Superbe location

  • 5 of 5

Superbe maison pleine de charme en tout point conforme à sa description et aux photos. Toutes les pièces sont très agréables à vivre et joliment décorées. Le jardin, au cœur de la bananeraie, nous a aussi beaucoup lu avec ses fruits, ses petits coins ombragés, sa terrasse, son poulailler et ses œufs frais. On sent que cette maison a une "vie", on s'y sent de suite très bien, c'est très appréciable.

De plus, l'accueil de Maria et Miguel est très simple et très chaleureux, merci à eux.

Bref, n'hésitez pas si vous souhaitez passer de superbes vacances sur cette côte de Madère
