Casa Parsons is set in a spectacular hillside village location with stunning panoramic sea views and is close to levada walks, coastal trails and hill villages. With easy access to the new improved road infrastructure Casa Parsons is indeed the ideal base from which to explore the whole of the Magical Island of Madeira.

We are a private family owned and run Bed & Breakfast and have just two spacious and comfortable guest rooms available for you to really feel at home ... In addition, we can cater for your special dietary needs, details on request. And with our wealth of local knowledge we can certainly point you in the right direction for the best walks, tours, eats and drinks available on the Island.

With a warm and friendly welcome we invite you to enjoy your holiday in the relaxed and informal atmosphere of Casa Parsons, Located in the hillside village of Gaula, situated to the WNW of Santa Cruz, some 200 metres above sea level and 1 Km from the coast line with magnificent 180* panoramic sea views.

The spacious and sunny terraced areas surrounding our Casa offer you the perfect viewpoint to take advantage of the spectacular sea views which include the Deserta Islands, Ponta de Sao Laurenco and the year round sunrise, with the incredible full moon rise also.

Together with the terraced seating areas the new lower sub tropical gardens to the front of our Casa provide you with the perfect opportunity to relax, reflect, pause and ponder.....

Our local village church, square and nearest selection of cafes and bars are all less than a 10 minute 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" [workers 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 down 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.
