“Amazing views, amazing place!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 5, 2013 for a stay in March 2013

person found this review helpful

This is an absolutely beautiful house with stunning views over the sea. It's modern, well equipped and beautifully cleaned and maintained. The owner, Celio, was really helpful, ringing when we arrived and before we left to check everything was ok and even offering that we could stay on if there was a problem with our flights. The local host, Margharida, who lives opposite, was a delight. Although she didn't speak much English, her French was excellent and her son, who was fluent in English, was on hand to translate if needed. We felt well cared for - with the fridge well equipped when we arrived and even a gorgeous pudding brought over to us on Easter Sunday!

The villa is a mile or two out of Ribeira Brava which is an excellent location as it gives you immediate access to the main north/south and east/west roads and only 20 minutes or so from Funchal. Ribeira Brava is a quiet, unpretentious little place but with everything available. Some good restaurants nearby too.

The facilities in the villa were outstanding. The bath in the main bedroom's ensuite had a spa function and the modern kitchen was really smart with black granite workshops, amazing views over the sea and and a really good coffee machine! There was a separate kitchen at the back with a BBQ fire pit and enormous skewers for making your own espetadas.

Although there was just two of us staying at the villa we thought it would be ideal for larger groups too, as there were lots of little areas such as terraces/balconies where you could get some space. The whole of the bottom floor was a garage/ games room (with great dart board) and it was great to drive your car into the house - especially on the few days which were wet.

A really gem which we felt offered incredible value for money.

“Great house with everything you need...”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 10, 2013 for a stay in January 2013

Very nice house which is fully equipped with everything one might need during holidays. It is new and so is everything within.

The house is located near Ribeira Brava in a rural environment away from the crouds but within short range to the town centre and the island highway "VR1". Very perfect if you want a relaxing holiday with also excellent access to all parts of Madeira.

Celio, the owner, and Margarida (the "manager") took great care of us. Thanks for the lovely welcome pack :-) If there's a chance we would certainly come back here.
