No weather data found for [, ”Portugal”, ”Madeira”, horizontal]

A pleasant establishment with splendid sea views and plenty of sunny sunbathing areas, both in the grounds and on a platform at the foot of the steep rocky cliff. Attracts mature, agile couples looking for a semi self catering base with upmarket dining facilities, in a relatively quiet and somewhat remote location.
