About Karen Pickering

Our first visit to Madeira was for our Honeymoon 30+ years ago and we have been returning ever since. It was our visit last Christmas in which we found the house and are extremely happy to share it with you. We live in the UK, have one Son and are both working professionals.

Karen Pickering purchased this villa in 2015

Why Karen Pickering chose Madeira

We have been travelling to Madeira for 30 years and have taken great care to obtain a property which suits the high expectations of visitors to Madeira.

What makes this villa unique

It was watching the cruise ships on New Years eve from the terrace which convinced us that this was the right property for us. We had been searching in this area for many years and the view sealed the deal !

Amazing place, fabulous all round!

  • 5 of 5

From the moment I booked this I was over the moon- Karen kindly organised transport to the villa. When we all walked in we all went wow!!!....as we spent time there we realised how much thought had gone into customers needs.....we all decided we need to add some things in our own kitchens!

The location is perfect, just a short stroll into the old town which is stunning and with amazing sea views. A special mention for Mirella who greeted us & was so helpful.

We loved this place that much we are already arranging next year!

Thankyou Karen- love your house! Xx

Excellent villa ,perfect location!

  • 5 of 5

We stayed two weeks in this villa in the end of march and enjoyed our stay enormously.The location is perfect,in the old town near the restaurants but far enough to be quiet.The sun shines to the terrace all day long.The villa is very well kept and clean,the towels and sheets are good quality.

Also the villa is very well equipped,everything you might need in the kitchen you will find.

The housekeeper is very efficient and kind.Airport transfers with Rafael were smooth .

We truly recommend this villa.

Thank You Karen and Mike!

Stunning villa with everything you could ever need for an amazing holiday.

  • 5 of 5

The beautiful villa is situated in the old town of Funchal with amazing sea views. It has been refurbished to a very high standard and is equipped with everything you could ever wish for.

We were also introduced to Louis who met us at the airport so transferring to the villa was very easy.

Numerous bars and restaurants are a stones throw away from the villa which we were more than happy with as we didn't hire a car.

An amazing week in an amazing villa.

Perfect place

  • 5 of 5

Thank you to Karen, Mike and Mirela for an idyllic holiday in a very comfortable and superbly equipped villa. It's location in the old town close to excellent bars and restaurants could not be better. Sitting on the balcony watching the ships pass by was a great way to enjoy the sun. We will be back!
