Rural location. Spectacular sea views. 500 metres above the coastline. Narrow winding roads and easy access to a comprehensive network of levadas for those that like to walk. Understandably, local pubs and restaurants tend to close at 21:00. Very friendly people but definately not a location for those wanting discotheques. Weather, even in December, at this altitude, proved to be excellent throughout the day, however may get cold cloudy weather rolling in from the southern coastline in the evening.
