Stayed in villa 39, which is beautiful, has all the equipment you could need (apart from a cafetiere, but there is a filter coffee machine), and, wow, what a view! Went with my partner and my mum for Christmas, and we all loved it. The owners had even put a Christmas tree up and decorated it beautifully.
The outside patio area is great, just lovely to eat outdoors in the sun in December, and the view out to sea and to Funchal harbour from there is amazing (you get the view from the lounge and all 3 bedrooms as well). It was lovely to have a private pool, but In December you do need to get it heated (which is not cheap at 250 euros a week, but worth it for us as we spent a lot of time in it).
Vera, the village rentals manager was very friendly and efficient, as were the maintenance people and cleaning staff. The cleaning staff came in twice during the week we were there, and someone came and resolved a problem with the pool temperature very quickly after we reported it.
