    Het verblijf is rustig gelegen met een magisch uitzicht op de oceaan en voorzien van alle comfort. Heel uitnodigend voor een zwempartij in het verwarmde zwembad of een avondje barbecue op het terras bij een ondergaande zon.

    Lieven, your description of the residence paints a picture of pure tranquility and luxury. The serene location with its mesmerizing ocean view sounds like the perfect setting for relaxation and enjoyment. It's delightful to imagine taking a refreshing swim in the heated pool or savoring a barbecue on the terrace while watching the sun dip below the horizon. Thank you for sharing your experience!
    The villa is beautifully situated in a quiet area with very beautiful views. The house itself is fully equipped with more than enough space for six people. The road to the villa is a bit steep but doable. No reason to worry about it.

    Nous avons passé un excellent séjour dans cette villa au calme, avec une vue magnifique sur l'océan. La villa est spacieuse et très fonctionnelle, idéale pour les familles. Hôte très réactif quand nous avions besoin d'information. Ce qui était également très appréciable. Je recommande !

It's fantastic that you found the villa spacious and functional, perfect for families. We're glad our responsiveness to your inquiries was appreciated. Your recommendation means a lot to us!

    STUNNING view overlooking the sheep, incredible value for money and extremly well equipped. Especially in terms of cooking appliances - every smeg product you could imagine is at your disposal. A little tricky to find the property since it is down a drive slightly hidden behind another property and maps is a little confusing in the area but not the hosts fault!

    This villa and the pool and terrasse was superb for our week in Madeira. It was a little tricky to find the first time but there were good instructions to follow. The house is both modern and very tidy and clean and the heated pool and warm aircon made it perfect for a lovely stay in february. We would love to stay here again ☀️
