We have just returned from a week at Villa 1 Fonte do Mar and it was amazing. There was 8 of us staying all together (2 families) and we had a fantastic time. The villa really does have the wow factor - on entering through the front door you have an amazing view of the sea. (this is just the start of many oohs, aahs and wows! The rooms are all so beautifully designed and each room has a sea view. The furnishings, fittings and decor are all of an incredibly high standard. It is impossible to do this villa justice by looking at photos - it really will blow you away. The owners have thought of everything from DVDs to play station games, blender, coffee machine, BBQ, Docking stations and even fresh flowers in the lift! Our children have now said that they never want to stay at a villa without a lift again! (could be difficult)
When you are by the pool it is so quiet and with the glass screening around the pool, it made you think you were on a very posh cruise liner! We paid extra to have the pool heated which was worth it as the children spent so much time in it.
We had good weather, but did have one day of rain. However, we enjoyed a trip to Funchal.
Marcia (the lady who looks after the villa) is so helpful and efficient. She met us at the agreed time and was so friendly. The villa was spotless and there was a very generous selection of food and drinks that had been left for us.
We went to the Reid's Palace hotel for cocktails one evening and it was worth every penny.
We did not bother to hire a car as there was at least 10 restaurants within 5 mins walk (beware as uphill on the way back)
A truly relaxing holiday in the most amazing surroundings - thank you.
