Nous avons passé de superbe vacances, la location qui est encore plus belle que sur les photos, le cadre idyllique et l'accueil du propriétaire ont tout simplement rendus notre séjour inoubliable.
Thank you for your review, and i hope to have again in one of my houses in Maadeira Island (Caniço, Funchal, Ribeira Brava and Fajã da Ovelha )or if you want to try in the other Island Porto Santo (very quiet 5000 peoples )
location charmante , calme, vue imprenable
Satisfaite de mon séjour mais déçue à l'arrivée : le duplex prévu n'était pas prêt , le ménage pas fait . En échange , on me proposait un studio a l'arrière de la maison sans intérêt ! J'ai donc choisi de faire moins même le ménage pour m'installer dans le duplex prévu ................Ce problème réglé le séjour a été très agréable .
