Great villa, great survice
We were 10 familymembers from the age of 9-72. Everyone had a great time in villa Petronella. We used the transfer service and the driver had arranged for Petronella to be there when we arrived. It was worth the prize. The heated pool was worth every euro. The kids spent hours in there enjoying themselves. We also used the car hire arranged by ourmadeira. Great service from them too. The only thing for some of us was that the matresses are very hard and my back was a bit sore every morning. But apart from that, our 12 night stay was wonderful:)
Thank you very much for your feedback and we are glad that you enjoyed your stay in Casa Petronella. Beds are very much a personal choice, so we are sorry that they were not to your liking.
Good to know that our pre-booking sevice for the transfer and hire car went well.
Did what it said on the box, awesome well equipped villa , easy access to Funchal , car recommended.
Lovely Villa with everything you need, BBQ was a bit fiddly to light and keep burning initially.
Great - thanks!
A lovely villa with all amenities you could requre
Very large but homely Villa , excellent amenities throughout , lovely swimming pool , sun trap for most of the day. Close to shops and bars, 5 mins in car down hill to Funchal . Narrow side street entrance to Villa easily navigated . 7 of us really enjoyed our stay , awesome views from bedroom terraces . Very friendly and helpful owners . Highly recommend this Villa.
Thank you for your super comments and recommendation for future guests.
8 of us (4 adults and 4 children) just spent a week in Casa Petronella. We had a great time, the villa is very clean and well appointed and has pretty much everything you need. Petronella welcomed us on arrival and showed us round. She was very welcoming and had a lot of information about the villa and the local area. She also told us to call her anytime if we needed anything. The villa is a little way out of the centre of Funchal which is a 30 min max walk (we didn’t hire a car), but it’s all down hill and gives you a chance to see and appreciate the local area. We never attempted to walk back up as there are loads of cabs which cost about €10 (however most cab drivers didn’t seem to know where the villa was so make sure you know the address). There is a great supermarket less than 10min walk which has everything you need, they have a great bakery and butchers and everything is reasonably price. Overall we had a lovely stay, the villa is in a lovely quiet location with stunning views and don’t be put off with it being near the main road as you cannot hear it. I would recommend this villa to any groups looking for an out of town relaxing location and a good base to explore the beautiful island.
Wow that is a really super review. Thank you very much for your kind comments and recommendation. All very much appreciated.
Beautiful large house - with a few downsides
We arrived for 10 days in November 2016. The property is really large and spacious and really great for large groups. The kitchen is well equipped and it even has a large utility. It was very clean and the living area really is spectacular. The pool is lovely but we are glad we paid extra to have it heated as it definitely needs to be.
The things we liked about this house was the space, the pool, the upstairs terrace was beautiful in the morning as you get the sunrise. It was very convenient for the supermarket and a few small bars, no restaurants near by though. The owner was brilliant, she stayed in touch and kept us informed of the mid stay bed and towel change and anything we asked for she sorted out. She couldn't have been more helpful. The views over Funchal are beautiful and it is close to the expressway so we could get other places very easily although a car is essential because although there are buses we found them to be erratic and the stop in to Funchal is a bit of a walk away probably a good 10 mins and there is no info in the villa for local buses or amenities.
A few downsides to the house are that there is no heating or air conditioning. We really could have done with some heating in the bedrooms at night although there is a lovely open fire in the lounge and we were given plenty of wood for it.
We found the bathrooms to be a little tired they could really do with a refurb. Also the beds were very hard, my husband ended up sleeping on the sofa. The basement area with a bedroom and games room we felt was almost unusable as there was an awful smell down there we assume the drains. There is some noise from the expressway as it is very near by and as its a residential area there were a lot of coming and goings at the side of the house which could be quite noisy. Also be aware that in November we lost the sun in the garden by about 4.30 so you don't get any evening sun. However saying all that we felt that for the money we paid it was very good value for money and I would stay there again.
Thank you for your comments
