This was our first trip to Madeira, and we found it to be a wonderful and special island. We look forward to returning to see and experience more. Casa D'Avo Beatriz is a beautiful and serene place where we felt relaxed, happy and reluctant to leave. Gaula is a peaceful and welcoming village too offering the opportunity to experience true Madeira life. Antonio was our host and could not have been more attentive, thoughtful and accommodating than he was. His good nature, hospitality, knowledge and good conversation enriched our Madeira experience. We found our accommodation to be of the highest quality - fresh, comfortable, clean and great value too. We certainly would not hesitate to return.
