Which is inserted in an idyllic setting, this village invites you to reconcile with nature, away from city stress and time restraints. From the bedroom to the living room, the whole decoration of the space drinks inspired by the maritime theme. A wise choice, which ends up holding the relaxed and light nature wearing this village. The house has a nice bed room for couples, although it is prepared to receive up to four people. It is the room we found the generous sofa bed, which will receive our additional guests. We have no doubt that the room will also be one of your favorite spots throughout their stay. The area is generous enough to offer a seating area with TV, and another dedicated to meals. In the kitchen, there was a concern not to leave out the essential appliances to day-to-day. Start the day with good breakfast outside and enjoy the first rays of sun on one of our sun loungers or swing the network. In this village still has at its disposal 4 bicycles, a kayak and, imagine, private access to the sea. We call it the "icing on the cake."
My name is Laura and I'm the person responsible for the property management, bookings, check-in, check-out and for any questions before and during guests stay.
Tranquility is the dominant note in the area surrounding this our property. And if walking is part of their plans for these holidays, let us the suggestion of 6km (3km + 3km) Pedestrian Sardinha Pier route; You will not be disappointed. But speaking in Caniçal is remembering inevitably bathing areas that make this town so appreciated by bathers, or restaurants in the area, whose fame already goes away for its seafood and fresh fish. Throughout the village, the guest can have access even to some small supermarkets, geared towards convenience shopping. For larger purchases, 10 minutes by car arrive to reach the city of Machico. But if your idea is heading to Funchal, the fast track allows you to get there in 30 minutes only. The car rental becomes an asset to the guest Village Pier Seagull. Still feel comfortable in asking for a taxi transfer marking with our local partners. Cheaper than taxis found at the airport!
