                  Car: Necessary

                  This is a well proportioned 1 bedroom penthouse above the owners house. It is situated in a mixture of rural small holdings as well as suburban houses. If walking is your passion, there are many routes directly from the penthouse, or just hop in the car and take a drive up to the top of the mountain where you can simply hike for hours or find various levada walks. If you want to chill out and relax, this is the place to do it!


                  Owner info

                  About the owner: My husband, Marc and I (Marilyn) are from Cape Town, South Africa. We moved to the UK in 2003 but decided that we needed to find a place that reminded us a little more of where we came from. We first visited Madeira in 2008 and eventually moved here in 2010. We bought our house on the South West coast as it is the warmest part of the island as well as wanting more of a rural and outdoor life-style for our 12 year old daughter who also attends the local Portuguese school and is now fluent in the language after a year!
