"Lovely, peaceful location - homely well equipped villa"
Two families with three teenagers apiece stayed at Casa Funchal. The pool, outside area and wifi were all the youngsters needed. Having two large fridges, bar b q area and plenty of bathrooms also helped. The villa had great living/ dining space and a kitchen equipped with the right size pans for a large group (not something I've always found in big villas). We found the place very clean when we arrived. The owners were welcoming and helpful through out our stay when we needed anything.
A car is definitely needed, there is little available within walking distance, but that is why it was so peaceful and picturesque. The town and shops were within ten minutes drive, as were the many beaches to choose from.
Thank you for your review, The villa is great for large groups/ extended family's, almost everyone loves its character, Not a new villa but very homely.

"Fantastic location for a relaxing break"
The villa is beautiful; large and spacious and deliciously cool when the heat outside is too much. There are plenty of sun loungers outside and there is always somewhere in the garden that is in shade as well as plenty of sunny areas to take your pick from. The owners live a very short distance away and could not be more helpful and friendly, but not intrusive in any way. The villa was clean when we arrived, and a cleaner came along on the middle weekend to clean and change the sheets and towels. All in all, a fabulous holiday that we will be repeating again in the not to distant future!
Hi Jo, Thank you for comments , Hope to see you sometime next year!
