We have just returned from a week at Villa Murphy and I think it is the best holiday home we have ever stayed in (and there have been many). Spotlessly clean, extremely comfortable with everything you could need. Location is quiet and away from the crowds but close to most amenities with a shop/restaurant just across the road. Sarah and...

We never thought of self catering but after a week in such a lovely place there will be no going back. Our villa was lovely. We had a really well equipped kitchen, a cosy living room (loads...

About the neighborhood
During the summer months you will enjoy many of the local festivites, complete with music, food and parades. The climate is warm and the sea is perfect for swimmers. Winter months also bring festivites although are focused more on cultivation and prepartion for Christmas. The climate is still warm in the day, but a little cooler in the evenings. For those of you that can't take the heat; winter months can be very pleasant.
Madeira is a volcanic Island (so of course very hilly) offering amazing nature: caves; rock pools; mountains; clifts; levadas and much more. If exploring and activity are your idea of a holiday; Madeira is the place for you. If you would like more information on Madeira and/or the villa to help you choose the right holiday destination for your holiday, we will be d...
Getting around
A car really is a must to get out and about and enjoy the many sites that madeira has to offer. The Island is small and most bus routes operate early in the morning and in the evening with a skeleton route during the day. Taxis are competitive and do offer a lot of knowledge.
