What a fantastically beautiful Villa Quinta Girassol is. Especially the heated pool!

We were met by Vanda , who was lovely and helpful and also brought along the meals we had pre ordered through Tony. Which were perfect meals to get us through the first day and night before we went off exploring local resturants.

We hired a car, which I would highly recommend for getting around Madeira. We stayed at the Villa alot of the time as the weather was gorgeous.

The villa provided us with a perfect weeks holiday, exactly what we were looking for. Everyone is lovely and helpful and Tony provides great information and recommendations.

Couldn't rate this high enough.

Well appointed villa with good views to the sea and surrounding village. On arrival we were met by vanda who settled us in well. Rooms were very comfortable especially the living room which isn't always the case. We sampled restaurants nearby which were good and a 10 to 15 min walk from villa. We also ordered the meals made by Pauline which were so good that as soon as i got home i went out to buy the ingredients for a spinach filo pie. Really appreciated all the supplies already there such as soap, washing up liquid etc as these things can mount up at a trip to the supermarket. Information supplied by Tony pre-holiday was extremely useful and we used the car hire he recommended which was super efficient. Highly recommended.
Owner's Response: Many thanks for this appreciative review. We're delighted you enjoyed Quinta Girassol so much -and the various services we offer too! Tony

It was hard to say goodbye to Quinta Girassol....

It was so hard for us to say goodbye to Quinta Girassol and Madeira. The villa is full of character and charm and everything was perfect. We felt very well! And Madeira is such a wonderful island: we enjoyed the gigantic nature, the levada walks, the wonderful flowers and the friendly people. We will cerntainly come back soon and hope that we can stay again in Quinta Girassol.
Tony, thank you so much for this beautiful holiday.
Kind regards,
Gudrun, Axel and friends

The house is a Gem!

This was our first visit to Madeira. We really enjoyed our stay. The house is a Gem! Definitely an island to visit. Just looking out from the patio at the Atlantic Ocean was so relaxing. We really had an enjoyable holiday.
