3/5 Okay

Pandemic Issues dominated our stay.
Unit was as advertised. Comfy, with great views. A lot of climbing to go anywhere. Unfortunatly, Covid19, cut our trip in half. Airline price gouging & missmanagement added to the sheer terror of traveling during a pandemic. As yet no solution for dates not used with the owner.

5/5 Excellent

A lovely New Year stay
The flat is very well equipped and appointed and it was great to be able to walk into Funchal and Camara de Lobos. Overall we had a lovely time and enjoyed the NYE fireworks. The only downside was that we couldn’t get the washing machine to work and some light bulbs needed replacing. We tried contacting the key holder by texts and phoning but got no response. This could have been a bigger problem if we’d got locked out.

5/5 Excellent

Memorable Madeira
Really lovely accommodation in a great location. Everything we needed was in the apartment and the information pack provided by the owners was first class. Madeira is a hilly place and there are lots of steps up and down from the apartment which certainly keep you fit, but if you are happy to walk and catch the local buses which are regular and not expensive you don’t need a car. We had a great holiday, many thanks to Natasha for the use of your apartment.

5/5 Excellent

Great location and lovely apartment with amazing views
The apartment was a lovely place to come back to after a day of sightseeing. It has a beautiful unobstructed view toward the west and sunsets. It is on the western edge of the hotel area and is therefore quiet. The apartment was clean and well appointed with everything that could be needed. Good restaurants and a handy little market nearby. Natasha sent a very detailed booklet to us before our departure that included information about the apartment as well as restaurant recommendations and bus schedules. We arranged through Natasha to be met at the airport by Manuel who drove us to and from the airport. Rita met us at the apartment and explained everything to us. We really enjoyed our 9 nights. We saw many sights and enjoyed our time at the Villa Formosa. Thank you.

5/5 Excellent

The apartment and views were stunning
The property owner was very Helpful and also provided very useful information regarding the apartment as well as local information to help you get around. Funchal town centre is a short journey by local bus which are very frequent and cheap. We would also highly recommend Manuels tour of the island this was one of our highlights of the holiday. We would definitely return
