“Wonderful Villa”

A fabulous villa with a magnificent view of Funchal. Have no doubt, villa Sao Paulo has all you could ever want for your holiday. We had pretty high expectations after reading other review, but we were still impressed. The pictures does not justify the villa, and it is actually bigger than you might expect. Patricia and Fernando are the kind of hosts you can only dream of getting. So nice and warmhearted, and the best of service from day one until the day we left. The house and it owners make you feel like your coming to an actual home, visiting old friends. And believe me, without mentioning all particulars, you will not miss anything in the house. If you should, I am pretty sure it will be taken care of by your hosts very quickly.
When we arrived, the villa was spotless clean. It was fresh flowers inside, and lots of fresh fruit on the kitchen table. Patricia had also provided wine, cheese and crackers as a welcoming gesture. My brother in law celebrated his 70 birthday during our stay. Patricia reserved us the best table at Zarco's and she had even baked a birthday cake and brought it to the restaurant as a surprise. Fernando, had great knowledge of the Island in general, and particular the many levadas. He gave us many great hints for hikes and tours. They also took the trouble to pick us up in their private cars at the endpoint of a levada and drove us back to our car.- impressive service ! Since we were exploring Madeira every day during our stay, I feel we just did not get to spend enough time at the villa and enjoying all its comfort, the games room, the pool etc. I must say thought that we noticed all the small details inside and outside that really makes a difference, and showing that the owners really do care about the house and your well being. If we ever go back to Madeira, I will not consider any other alternative to stay. I will know that by contacting Patricia and/or Fernando ,everything will be in the best of hands and my vacation will be a success,- again!
