Giorgio is a very attentive host and was helpful to us. The house is large for the two of us and could accommodate 4 very well.
We rented a car and the location is great for either going into town or driving to other locations on Madeira. Walking would not be easy and maybe difficult to find.
The house is on a dead end street so fairly quite, except for some occasional dog barking. I enjoyed being away from the tourist area.
