Self Catering in Madeira

The apartment is west facing, avoiding the midday sun and benefiting from spectacular evening sunsets.


There are two 6sqm balconies, the living room one being furnished with a small table and two chairs. So, after a day of site seeing and shopping, sit down, relax with a glass of wine, and watch the sun go down over the village of Camara de Lobos.


The cliff face you see from the apartment (below) is Cabo Girão, one of the most sheer drops in Europe and is a tourist attraction in its own right.
