Casa Parsons

Description of vacation home

Casa Parsons is set in a spectacular hillside location with stunning panoramic sea views and is close to levada walks, coastal trails and hill villages. Also convenient for the Airport and Funchal, Casa Parsons is the ideal base from which to explore 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 village of Gaula, approx 4 kms WNW of Santa Cruz, some 200 metres above sea level and 1 Km from the coast line with magnificent 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, year round sunrise and incredible full moonrise. Together with the perfect opportunity for relaxing, bird watching, painting and photography, we are also ideally situated for golfers and marine enthusiasts.

Our local village church, square and nearest cafes and bars, together with a decent country and forest walk, 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" [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.


Our two spacious guest rooms have en suite shower rooms, double beds and seating areas with Sea and Garden views.

Both the rooms are situated on the ground floor and have direct level access to the communal lounge and dining area.

This comfortable and airy room in turn opens directly out onto the front terraces (stunning sea views) and again gives level access to the garden, side terraces and seating areas.

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 2 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.
