Great villa with excellent facilities.
A very well equipped villa, with great views over Funchal. The villa has been renovated to a very high standard with attention to detail and I would definitely stay here again. The welcome pack on arrival is a nice touch and the management company make the arrival and departure very easy. The villa is not within walking distance of Funchal, however the local bus service runs past the villa and operates a good service, taxis are approx 10 euro from the town but do not pick one up from the bottom of the toboggan run to go into town as they are charge double. A great place to stay and recharge the batteries.

Madeira, dreams come true
Beautiful new house, very well equipped with all you need for a enjoyable stay. We loved the big views over Funchal and the sea. Right from the house you can walk up the hill. There is also a little restaurant near by, where you can eat very cheap meat and fish. And it is not only cheap, it is also very very good!!! For us holidays on Madeira is a dream coming true! Thanks a lot to Linda, Norberta and Ricardo, who did all to make our stay unforgettable! We will be back soon!

Thank you very much for your comments and recommendation and we are very happy that you enjoyed your stay and our service. We look forward to seeing you soon.
Fantastisch! Nur zu empfehlen!
Wir hatten eine traumhafte Zeit auf Madeira. Die Wohnung liegt oberhalb von Funchal mit super tollem weiten Ausblick. Die Fotos zeigen das Objekt genauso schön wie es ist. Unterhalb des Pools ist noch eine Art kleiner Garten mit Kräutern, die man auch nutzen darf. Die Ausstattung ist top und die Einrichtung sehr geschmackvoll. Zwei große Bäder mit Regendusche und Kommoden. Wir sind herzlichen empfangen worden und haben uns sehr wohl gefühlt. Wir kommen auf jeden Fall wieder!

Lovely villa in Monte, Funchal.
We spent a very enjoyable ten days at this property - it was just as described in the details and had all you need for your stay and very clean, including a mid week clean and change of bed linen and towels.We mainly ate out although it was useful to have the BBQ. It was nice to be able to walk to O Rustico's just down the road from villa and we also enjoyed meals at Olives and Espettus (our favourite). We didn't have a car and although buses regular did feel a car is a must. Would definitely recommend this villa to anyone visiting Madeira.

Glorious views, stunning pool and deck area
The property description and pictures are accurate, this is a very impressive property, all newly done, very well equipped, spotlessly clean and with splendid views over Funchal and the ocean. We stayed as up couple, so it was a very generous size for the 2 of us. It might be a bit cramped for 6, if the weather isn't good, there is plenty of outside space, but the lounge and kitchen area would be a squeeze. We had quite a lot of rain, so were sadly forced indoors more than we would have liked. We loved the outside terrace, with the pool and BBQ, as well as the roof top seating with chaise longues. It took us about 40 minutes to walk into the centre of Funchal, but it was extremely steep, so we relied on the bus, (convenient bus stop outside) and taxis. On 2 nights, we walked to very pleasant local restaurants, Rustico and Vasca da Gama and also made use of the BBQ on a couple of evenings. The property is well located for getting out of Funchal too, without going through the city centre, very close (we walked) to Monte, with its beautiful gardens and the cable car and with easy access to the mountains and motorway. We would definitely recommend this property.
