Casa Alto, Funchais

  • 5 of 5

This was our first week abroad in a few years and we needed a break - somewhere which provided tranquillity, wildlife, guaranteed sunshine, good food, good people, a pool and all with minimum travel time. I booked this at the very last minute and the process was easy - with a high level of customer service provided by the owner. We didn't want to hire a car this time and help was provided with other customer recommendations for taxi details etc. We enjoyed walking to Sao Bras (about 6km) and Bordeira (about 1km) and barbequeing every night. The listing description and photographs were accurate and we were delighted with the property and its amenties when we arrived at the villa. We would definitely consider returning on our own, with family and/or friends in the future.
