Amazing Villa

  • 5 of 5

We were looking for peace & quiet & found paradise! The villa was just a home from home but in the sunshine. The directions were spot on & easy to access, we stayed by the pool for a few days unwinding but felt we needed to leave the sun beds to go exploring! All visitor sites were so close to hand & we were so glad we did, Rosa visited whilst we were there & she addressed a few minor issues we had without any problems! We would definitely visit Madeira again & use this villa without hesitation.

Wonderful villa, very spacious, clean and the pool was fantastic. Very quiet location, amazing views. Rita provided very clear and precise directions from the airport. Rosa very helpful. Went dolphin watching, which was great. Would definitely recommend this villa to friends and we hope to return one day to this lovely villa.

This was a truly great accommodation. The only problem is that if you come here wanting to see Madeira you won't. Because you'll have no reason to leave the house. Great pool. Great view. Great wood burning stove. What more could you want

Fantastic villa, lovely sea view. WOW Factor,!!!

  • 5 of 5

A wonderful, lovely, private and secluded villa! Lounging by the pool in the Madeira sun just totally relaxing:) No traffic noise as place is just far enough off the main road at the start of a cul de sac. Car is definitely needed though. Some nice café/bars and restaurants (seafood amazing) not far away, but far enough. Villa tastefully decorated to a good standard inside and out, Rita your artistic touch just so homely and lovely! All facilities iron, dishwasher, washing machine, drier, on hand, plus more, home from home, thanks. Loved the BBQ great for outside eating in the evening. Villa plants are just so beautiful. Found biggest supermarket to us was the Pingo Doce at the Calheta Marina about 10 mins away by car. Can recommend this place for a romantic relaxing private holiday away from the stresses of home. Rosa, your friend and cleaner was so friendly, a very gentle, kind manner and we only met her briefly:) Thank you both Jan and Rita a wonderful break! We so hope to return again.:) S (Surrey)

A Magic Holiday

  • 4 of 5

This was our second stay in as many years and was just as happily memorable as our initial holiday in this superb villa. Our youngest daughter joined us this year and she brilliantly captured the high quality of the villa and the island's stunning beauty and diversity with the phrase 'A Magic Holiday'. The villa was very clean and there were several facility improvements from our previous stay, including a new shower cubicle in the downstairs bathroom. The only negative was the DVD player did not work but this was not a problem as we had an alternative player.

Attractions we enjoyed included a car excursion to Pico do Arierio, looking at the mountain peaks with white clouds below, dolphin and whale watching from Calhetta and our cable trip to the micro climate of Faja dos Padres with the fabulous array of plants delicious and unique wine and delightful resturant.

Rita kindly gave us details of a nearby bar where we had the most delicious meal whilst watching an amazing sunset.

Rita's best friend, Rosa, was always only a phone call away to resolve any issues with the villa and helped enormously with sound advice and guidance on several occasions.

Definitely recommend the villa and the island for a very relaxing holiday in excellent accommodation.

Beautiful Location

  • 4 of 5

A five min drive to the beach and 30 minuets to Funchal made a great location, although surrounded by other property's we were not over looked or disturbed. Well maintained and exceptionally clean. It seemed Calheta was sunny most of the time even when other parts of the island were raining.
