Beautiful house and wonderful hosts
The house is perfect. Very spacious, immaculately clean, light and well equipped. The terrace and garden (very well tended) are delightful, overlooking the coastline. We were lucky to have warm, sunny weather and sitting outside to have breakfast or to watch the sunset was great. The hosts were extremely friendly, kind and helpful; welcoming us on our arrival with speciality local cakes and fruit, and helping us sort out a minor problem understanding the heating/air con in the sitting room. Inaction recommended a great fish restaurant in the next village. We found the beds a little hard but that may be just our personal preference. The house is up a steep hill with several bends, but that is normal for Madeira. We parked our car right outside the front gate as the driveway was very steep. The only negative is that there are some noisy dogs in the area, with barking in the evening and sometimes during the night. This seems to be a common problem throughout Madeira (there appears to be quite a few stray dogs around the island too). We explored the island by car a lot and had many great days out. Lovely stay.
