Neighborhood

Our local village church square and our nearest cafes and bars, together with a decent walk through country lanes and forest area, are all less than a 10 minute initial uphill walk away.
 
Our two nearest restaurants, mini mercado, pastelaria and more cafes and bars, are all also within a 10 to 15 minute walk away, via a fairly steep "Vereda" [public foot path] with a mere 207 steps!  

The local bus service is both excellent and extensive with the nearest main bus stop a 10 minute walk away via the vereda.

Whilst a hire car is recommended (road location map and directions to Casa Parsons provided), we do offer a free airport collection service if you choose not to drive. We're Jonathan and Debra (Jon and Deb) and we own and run Casa Parsons together.

"This is our permanent home here and we offer you a relaxed and informal holiday with us, complete with the company of Lucy, our very friendly 5 year old "rescue" dog and her playmate, Gizmo the cat. We invite you to enjoy our friendly family atmosphere"

After a dozen visits to Madeira on holiday (over some ten years) we finally had the opportunity to move here permanently in July 2004.

We moved from the Isle of Anglesey, North Wales, U.K. Exchanging one beautiful island for another. We brought with us our love of the country, walks and coastal areas - even more enjoyable here with the warmer temperatures and exotic flora and fauna.

Jon is a retired Royal Air Force Search & Rescue Helicopter Aircrew member.

Deb was a P.A. in the U.K. Health Service and they both enjoy walking the Levadas together.
