Myself, partner, teenage son and his friend stayed for one week early April 2016. The Villa and grounds are spacious (allowing some quiet time if required). It is all very well kept with lots of lighting options both inside and outside. There is plenty of room for a larger group as there are 5 bedrooms (2 en-suite and 1 bathroom). The BBQ, Games Room, Heated Pool and Jacuzzi where well used and very enjoyable. The kitchen is extremely well equipped. The owners are very friendly and helpful. They showed us around the Villa on arrival and gave us lots of information. They had also provided quite a few essential items of food and drink (and also some luxuries!) F.O.C. on arrival so we didn't have to rush out to the supermarket (200 metres) straight away. We used the Pizzeria just 200 metres away a number of times and found it to be good value. We didn't have any young children with us but I would be confident to allow them to safely explore the grounds as it is all fenced / walled and the pool area can be easily secured if necessary. There is a large trough of water in the garden which has also been secured with a grate so the owners seem to be very safety conscious. I would recommend having a hire car. The car can be parked inside the grounds by going through the large metal gates, or in a lay-by just outside the gates on the quiet road. We left ours outside after the first night.

“Wonderful Villa”
Reviewed 12 April 2016 for a stay in April 2016

This villa is wonderful. The pool was warm even in April in a really sheltered area which was a great sun trap. There are really good quality sunbeds around the pool and a hot tub. If you have young children the pool can be locked off for safety. Great supply of extra large pool towels provided as well. The pool area is well lit as well if you want to go night swimming. The games room was great although the pool table took a bit of getting used to as it played really fast. The courtyard had a massive barbecue area with picnic benches in front and all the wood you need. If it was cold you could also light the fire in the living room as well.

The villa is extremely well equipped with everything you could possibly want in the kitchen. The owners also provided us with a great selection of different teas, coffee and milk along with bread, cheese, butter, jam, honey, herbs and spices. There is also a lovely herb garden which the owners invited us to use. Best of all though they left us a huge bowl of different local fruits, a bottle of Madeira wine, some speciality teas and biscuits. The gardens in the front of the villa provide a beautiful peaceful setting for sitting for a meal or relaxing in the evening with views over the valley towards the sea. There is good wifi connection too.

The villa is in a quiet location on the mountain side above Ponta do Sol (about a 10 minute drive). There is a supermarket, cash machine and a pizzeria restaurant about 100 yards from the villa but not a great deal else within walking distance so a car is necessary really. The pizzeria is really excellent value for money - we ate there a few times and had 4 main courses with a bottle of wine, a couple of beers, soft drinks and a couple of desserts all for approximately 50 euro. The pizzas were more of the American style - overload of topping and thick crust but all the other dishes we tasted were excellent.

There is a very annoying man who lurks around the corner of the restaurant/supermarket asking foreign tourists for money. He says he has been sick and needs the money for food but when I brought him some left-over pizza he was not interested as he had plenty of food at home. If he approaches you just ignore him as he will pester you like mad if you give him money. He wants the money for drugs and cigarettes.

Ponta do Sol is a small place with a pebble beach and a small selection of restaurants and shops. There is a sandy beach about 20 minutes drive away at Calheta which had a selection of bars and restaurants along the sea front. The whale and dolphin watching was a great experience for us as the dolphins swam with the boat for much of the way. Very special.

The best thing about the villa though are the lovely owners. Nothing is too much trouble. They even met us on route to direct us to the villa as there was a diversion in place at the time and they thought we would get lost. On our last day they bought us a lovely honey cake as well. The cleaner comes every day to clean the pool, change towels, replenish wood and clean out the barbecue too. A fantastic service.

Visited here for 10 days in November of this year. The villa itself is lovely, heated pool 8m by 4m, outdoor barbecue, which we cooked on 8 out of 10 nights, games room with pool table (we played every night). Jacuzzi next to the pool. Beautiful gardens, ate breakfast looking onto the gardens each morning. A choice of 5 bedroom, we stayed in the one on the second level, truly lovely. The windows look over the garden and you can see the sea. Well appointed kitchen with everything you need, lovely dining room.
Owners Beatriz and Tito are so lovely, there is Madeira wine with biscuits, bread, tea, coffee, milk and butter, various spices and condiments are there on your arrival, everything to set you up for the first day or so before going shopping.
The villa itself is set high above Ponta Do Sol, so you do really need a car, there is a wee pizzeria, pharmacy and good supermarket just round the corner.
We thoroughly enjoyed our stay here.
