    Szuper helyen, nagyon jó szállás. Minden a leírásnak megfelelő volt, a házban minden megtalálható amire szükség van. Csendes környék, nem túl messze jó kis kocsma, olcsó italokkal és helyi arcokkal. Nagyon ajánlom a helyet, csodás volt, a házban jól éreztük magunkat. Köszönünk mindent ♥️����

Your input is valuable to us as we strive to continuously improve our accommodations. We appreciate your stay and hope to have the opportunity to welcome you back in the future.
    Das Haus ist schön und gut eingerichtet. Das Wetter war in unsere Urlaubswoche nicht gut und dann war es im Haus sehr feucht. Man kann mit den Aircondition heizen aber es ist mehr ein Sommerhaus. Mit Linda war es einfach und gut zu kommunizieren und das Haus ist gut ausgestattet und hat eine schöne Aussicht. Der Pool war gut geheizt und trotz nicht so tollem Wetter haben wir ihn benutzt.

    Dear Christine, Thank you for taking the time to share your feedback about your recent stay. We're delighted to hear that you found the house beautiful and well-furnished and that we provided easy and good communication throughout your stay. It's great to know that you enjoyed the well-equipped house its nice view and the heated pool despite the challenging weather. We apologize for any inconvenience caused by the increased humidity during your stay. Unfortunately, Madeira experienced a heavy storm during that period, which affected the overall weather conditions. We appreciate your understanding and hope that, despite the weather challenges, you could still make the most of your holiday experience. Thank you for choosing our property, and we look forward to welcoming you back in the future under more favourable weather conditions. Best regards, António

    Thank you for your kind words about Casa das Florenças!

    The villa is great! Really sparse outside, with three levels of patios (2nd floor, main, down at the pool), enough private space inside and featuring an _amazing_ view. Nice isolated living room, a dining room + kitchen, three proper bedrooms (with one being a larger master). Good internet, we didn't have any problems with it after they added an extender.
    It's somewhat distant from the city, but for us this was a plus since we wanted a quieter area. Still just about 35 minutes drive to Funchal. But also just 15 minutes drive from Fanal forest with amazing hikes! And same 15 minutes to the ocean and there're some lively areas to both west and east.
    The pool is not huge, but pretty large for a quick swim middle of the day, although the weather during our stay wasn't really encouraging water activities :)
    Finally, our hosts were very accommodating and helped us with whatever we needed - wifi extenders, extra sunbeds.
    Overall, much recommended. Very happy we found this place.
