Really nice villa, clean, well-equipped, great views, nice sized swimming pool for kids to splash about in. Views come with a drawback though, which is that the villa is set well back from the town, about 4km up the hill. Little is actually within walking distance except a few local facilities, a few small basic stores (with little in them) and a pizza place, and ideally you need a car. We managed using the local bus service which is good but infrequent so you have to plan ahead. Bus stop just 50m up the hill from villa go down to ribiera brava several times a day for 1.30 euros each. Bus timetable is on internet (Rodoeste buses, boa morte to ribeira brava). Taxis are also an option, and certainly cheaper than hiring a 7 seater car! Great island, ribeira brava is a nice quiet town with a good promenade and decent little cafes. Must point out that there lots of dogs in the area, including several very vocal ones in the neighbouring villas, but one quickly gets used to it. Pool isn't particularly private in that it is overlooked by neighbouring villas if that is an issue, but the views whilst in the pool really are wonderful. TV and DVD collection came in handy for kids in between pool sessions. No AC so upstairs got pretty hot by evenings even with window shutters in use during day. Should have more fans in house. Overall would recommend.

Thank you for your review the villa is advertised as having a rural setting and one does get the rural noises that come along with that setting but it is mostly very quite, hence you can hear things from across the valley. Better than listening to all the revelers in a town. Fans are available on request we do not leave them out as they are one of the items that seam to get a lot of abuse for some reason, along with the sun loungers and frying pans.

About the neighborhood
Crista da Aguia is situated at the top of a small valley where if you listen carefully you will hear a small stream as it tumbles down the valley. The area is rural and quite. little traffic passes the villa as it is not near any main connecting roads of the island. The villa is ideally located to explore the island to the East West or North. Walking Nearest bar/ice cream parlour/restaurant 5 mins, nearest shop 10 mins. Lavada walk (levada North) east or west 20 minutes. Many local rural paths to wander close to the villa. By car 5 mins Ribeira Brava/beach, 18 mins Funchal, 35 mins Airport. If you are planning on doing the many walks on the island then good walking shoes are a must. If following many of the Levadas a torch and waterproof are handy as you may encounter tunnels, and open waterfalls on many of the routes walking guide books can be found in the villa. By car if you want to see the island then avoid the tunnels and try your hand at the twisting mountain roads. For your first surprise take the old road out of the sea front going west from Ponta da Sol, it travels almost at sea level along and through the cliffs then climbs, and you have to drive through a waterfall that crosses the road

Car advised
How to get there
Most guests travelling to Madeira will arrive by air. Funchal airport is approx. 35km away from the villa. After landing at the airport you should be at the villa in an hour. Our representative will meet you at a prearranged location to take you to the villa and answer any questions you may have. Our representative is available during your stay via phone if you should have any problems. The island has a good bus service but bus times are concentrated at morning and evenings. to see the island in all its glory and to avoid the tunnels your best way to get around is by car. we list water sports nearby as Madeira is world famous for the sport of Canyoning.
