We stayed 10th to 14th December and enjoyed every minute. The hosts Joel and Bruno could not do enough for us. With their help, we saw a great deal of the island during our short stay.
Instead of touring by coach we hired a taxi. Bruno liased with the company to ensure we made the most of the full and half day tours. Because there were 4 of us, this turned out to be a cheaper option whilst providing a great personal service.
We had a wonderful driver, Oskar, who was very knowledgeable and great fun. He even coaxed us into the glass viewpoint at Cabo Girao. Something we would never have done on our own, but are very happy that we did. We also went on the toboggan ride, another great experience.
The apartment was meticulously clean with fresh bedding and towels. Lovely freshly baked bread is provided every morning which makes for a delicious breakfast as a selection of tea, coffee, spreads etc are also provided.
It is in a nice area, a 7 minute walk to the local supermarket and 5 minutes to the bus stop, and it's a 20 minute ride into Funchal.
The views from the apartment are lovely. We had a fabulous time and would definitely stay here again.
