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 Lucy our friendly 4 year old dog and her playmate, Gizmo the cat."
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.
