very nice and quite ,the owners are evry informative
We had thge smaller of the two villas for a week. It is very spacious (3 bathrooms, 2 beds, large sitting area). To be clear, you share the complex area - and therefore the pool/barbecue area -which the larger villa, but we didnt find that a problem. There is also a small laundry room attached to the bigger house, where there is a washing machine.
The area itself is very remote as its on the outrskirts of the Sao Jorge village, but we found that very relaxing. The owners - 2 brothers - were both lovely, and helpful. There was a minor issue with the pool one day, but it got sorted out as soon as the issue was raised.
We found that the local area was nice for walking in, there is a 10k walk nearby which was not too challenging, and really pretty, especially the watefall.
There are local shops in the village, plus a big supermarket on the way to Santana, which is where we did all our foodshopping. we didnt find that it was very expensive, which is a relief, as eating out in Funchal would have been very expensive indeed.
We arrived straight from the Easyjet flight which landed midmorning, and the place wasnt actually ready, the maid was still cleaning and said that it would be ready at about 3pm - you should bear that in mind (although it was fine to leave stuff there, its not quite the same as being able to jump in the shower straight away!).
Another thing is that there isnt actually internet in the house. The owner who lives locally offered to lend us his dongle/usb stick to receive it. If you need to be plugged into the web, you might want to look at bringing your own computer/dongle, as the only internet cafe we saw was in funchal, and that only opens at midday daily.
A beautiful area, quiet and with spectacular views. Great to have the barbecue and pool at the villa also.
Beautiful position, very quiet and peaceful.
DVD player would have been nice
We had a fantastic stay. We found it an idea base away from it all to explore the island. The small house is quite spacious and the use of the pool is great. We found the owner very hospitable. I would highly recommend having a meal out at the small restaurant behind the church in sao jorge too.
