Lovely Villa in private setting.
Very private location in a pleasant setting in the hills. Some areas of property a little dated, but very comfortable and spacious. Pool lovely, especially as extra was paid to keep it warm. Would be nice to have some basic supplies at the property (toilet rolls in short supply LOL). Thanks for lovely holiday!
Thank you for taking the time to write a review of our property. Basic supplies should be there so I will have a chat with our managing agent. We continue to update the property and will be out there in August to see what is on the list this year. All the best
Casa Alto, Funchais
This was our first week abroad in a few years and we needed a break - somewhere which provided tranquillity, wildlife, guaranteed sunshine, good food, good people, a pool and all with minimum travel time. I booked this at the very last minute and the process was easy - with a high level of customer service provided by the owner. We didn't want to hire a car this time and help was provided with other customer recommendations for taxi details etc. We enjoyed walking to Sao Bras (about 6km) and Bordeira (about 1km) and barbequeing every night. The listing description and photographs were accurate and we were delighted with the property and its amenties when we arrived at the villa. We would definitely consider returning on our own, with family and/or friends in the future.
Thank you very much for your positive feedback. You are the first people who have visted without a car and we are very pleased that you enjoyed the walking around the villa to the nearby villages and that the pool was much used during your stay. We hope to hear from you again soon.
