Just at the end of a great Easter break at Gouveia House. The views are stunning, the walk to the front takes about 20 mins but be warned it's steep coming back up. Easily accessible by car though and an ideal spot to explore all over Madeira.
Hosts are excellent, very welcoming and friendly.
Highly recommend to anyone. We were here with our two kids, 11 and 14 who both loved the pool.
Gouveia House makes an ideal base to tour this delightful island. The view from the rooms and patio are stunning, the house spotlessly clean, a lovely pool (not to deep for any young ones) and every culinary bit of equipment you could possibly need.
Only 20 minutes from Funchal using the great road / tunnel system but within minutes of the lavadas and mountains. The marina at the bottom of the hill offers an assortment of affordable restaurants and supermarket, whilst we found Jardim do Mar adn Ponte do Sol delightful places to visit and dine out in.
