About Elisabete Gregory

We are a couple with two young children. We live in London but love Madeira and its warm climate! We chose the dramatic views of Porto da Cruz as the location for our holiday home.

Elisabete Gregory purchased this villa in 2009

Why Elisabete Gregory chose Madeira

We built this modern property in this location because it has a stunning view and the panoramic windows allow for a 360 view of it all!

What makes this villa unique

From here you can access the most beautiful levada walks and is also close to cafes, restaurants, beach and swimming pool!

Guestbook comments from the manager

"We stayed with a baby for one week in the modern villa. The house was clean, fully equiped and nicely situated. The view from the living room and from the master bedroom is breathtaking, especially at sunrise. Moreover the owners showed great hospitality and dedication which gave the stay a nice personal touch."Matthijs from The Netherlands

"The accommodation was well fitted out with appliances including a washing machine and microwave. Rooms were spacious and very comfortable (the master bedroom is ensuite). We were left excellent instructions on how to get to near by places of interest and I would highly recommend this property to anyone looking to visit Madeira." Rach from Manchester

"From the moment we stepped off the plane we fell in love with Madeira. When we reached the house it was everything it said it would be. The couple that run the bar next door were very helpful and would call us a taxi whenever we asked. We were surprised how cheap it was to eat and drink out too. A very relaxing holiday in lovely surroundings which didn't cost the earth."D&J from Oxford

The local community were friendly and very helpful,the small bar next door were always willing to phone for a taxi.Local buses were easy to use with routes to machico and Funchal the views were incredible.The VILLA had all the facilities of home and was clean and tidy.The owner could not have been more helpful and the information provided was accurate.We have visited Madeira for the last 8 years we have seen more in 1 holiday than we did in the previous 7.All the restaurant's we visited provided good quality food although at times the service was slow.The local amenities.included a range of traditional bars/restaurants levada walks and a local sea water lido. A thoroughly enjoyable experience

As the title suggests the view is perfect for a first day to relax and plan ahead. Location is serviced by an hourly bus into local town where you can transfer to Funchal . The apartment was super, both bedrooms over looked the view to watch the sunrise if you are lucky enough to be awake.There is a sandy beach in Machico for children to play and swim.Restaurants i found were good,and as a traveller i always say if they are busy theres a reason.Funchal is gorgeous day and night with plenty of activities .

I plan to go again J.T.
