Guestbook comments from the owner
Thank you Peter & Deann we all had a wonderful time in Madeira exploring the Island and the weather it seems was exceptionally good for November
Your villa is fantastically spacious and beautifully appointed and it was good to leave all the clutter behind us. I was amazed at the ability of the locals to speak such good English.
Your directions to the villa were brilliant by the way especially when one arrives in darkness in a strange country
Many thanks for everything-it all went very smoothly..
