        Un bel endroit, pour commencer un voyage à Madère ! Il y a un air de résidence Relais et Châteaux. Dans la campagne, sur une falaise sauvage, avec une vue imprenable sur l'océan. Les chambres sont grandes et luxueuses, le petit déjeuner est un régal, on y trouve de tout, et préparé le matin même ( pain, patisseries, salades de fruits frais exotiques). Piscine chauffée pour les frileux, et salle commune de lecture ou pour jouer au bridge pour les amateurs. Joli restaurant et cave à vin. A tester!

      • Advantages

        La vue, la promenade le long de la côte sauvage ( pas temps sec uniquement, attention à la chute...!), la qualité du service, le petit déjeuner +++, la psicine couverte et chauffée.

      • Disavantages

        rien aux alentours, un peu prison dorée ! Pour se restaurer le soir, une seule alternative, leur restaurant assez onéreux !
