Overview

Rustic setting with modern furnishings, beautiful garden and barbecue area

Tested and approved by

MADEIRA - TOURISMO

'Casa Velha Escola' was, as the name suggests, the old school house the small town of Loreto.

Loreto is famous for its many regional festivals with flower-covered roads and the grilled over an open fire skewers 'Espedata' a specialty of the island of Madeira.

The building was adapted as a holiday home in 2010 and renovated with great attention to detail.

It was thus possible to bring that special flair of the old stone house with a modern design and contemporary technology in line.

Special attention was paid to a high level of comfort and functional furniture.

Whether a week or a day, a stay at 'Casa Velha Escola' is a feel-good holiday!

If during the winter months an evening once be cooler, the house of course has an electric heater!

On the ground floor, a well equipped kitchen with gas / electric cooker, fridge / freezer, microwave / grill, coffee maker, toaster, kettle and dishwasher.

In the living room a cozy sitting area, a comfortable sofa with a reading corner, satellite TV, DVD player. and Internet access via Wi-Fi.

From the living room a staircase leads to the first Floor, here you will find a beautifully furnished bedroom with a double bed and a view over the endless Atlantic.

A dressing table and plenty of space for your clothes are Off course.

Furthermore, on the first floor a spacious bathroom with bath, separate shower, washing machine, dryer and heated towel rail.

Also from the bedroom leads 2 a staircase down to the garden.

In the garden you will find exotic flowers, bananas and cacti and a herb with fresh herbs of the season.

A well equipped barbecue, garden furniture, parasol and sun - beds are standard.

A private parking for 2 cars is located directly behind the house.

The house is situated in a quiet location just a 1-minute walk from the village center with bar, cafe, pizzeria / Italian restaurant, mini market / bakery, bank, and taxi rank. Depending on the catch is served each morning fresh fish from local fishermen. Only about 7 minutes' drive of the main town Calheta is with 'Calheta Beach' the most beautiful beach of the island, a supermarket, restaurants, seafood restaurants and a promenade with bars, shops and the possibility for boat trips and whale watching along the stunning south coast of Madeira.

Next visit, the museum Casa das Mudas with great architecture and art - exhibitions, such as the old rum factory, once a year, a typical island Aquardente here is made from sugar cane around

Ideal is 'Casa Velha Escola' for hiking tours, the next Levada walking trail crosses the road to the plateau Paul da Serra about 1 km above the house and is also walking distance in the shortest time achievable. The plateau itself is to achieve as a starting point for many hikes by car in about 10 minutes.. Next on beacon and Ribeira da Janela the road leads through laurel forests to Porto Moniz the most northwestern point of Madeira. From here, continue along the old road to the lighthouse of Ponta Pargo the most westerly point. From here, a new highway along the places Faja da Calheta and Prazeres leads back to Calheta.

Perfect Retreat

  • 5 of 5

This was a wonderful find on a wonderful island. It is always difficult to see exactly what somewhere will be like until you arrive, but there is no doubt that Casa Velha Escola is a beautiful and cosy cottage in probably one of the best parts of the island. We were very comfortable in the cottage and the garden was delightful. The cottage was very well equipped and It was a great bonus having the washing machine. With a very short time you can be walking along one of the many levadas or venturing further to the 25 Fontes and the Risco waterfall. The cottage was very well maintained and very clean and we received a very warm welcome. We hope to return here very soon and see more of this lovely island and Casa Velha Escola would be the perfect place for this visit.

Vorfrühling / Spätwinter in der Casa Escola Velha

  • 5 of 5

Wir verbrachten herrlich erholsame 3 Wochen in dieser Casa, die mitten im beschaulich-ländlichen Ort Loreto / Arco da Calheta liegt - nahe am winzigen Zentrum mit Pizzeria (sehr empfehlenswert!), Minimarkt und Bank, nahe auch an wunderbaren Wanderungen entlang der Levada Nova oder durch Gärten und Felder. Stets mit Steigungen, die wir selbst auf Teneriffa so noch nicht gesehen hatten...

Wir haben uns rundherum wohlgefühlt. Haus und Garten sind auf der Website in jeder Beziehung zutreffend beschrieben, die Betreuung (Email) mit dem österreichischen Besitzer sowie Rose vor Ort war sehr angenehm.

Wir können dieses Domizil uneingeschränkt weiter empfehlen.

Ein Auto ist unbedingt erforderlich!

Frühlingstage im Jänner auf Madeira

  • 5 of 5

Um den kalten Jännertagen zu entkommen haben wir dieses Jahr das " Casa Escola" auf Madeira gebucht.

Sehr schönes Haus, alles sehr gepflegt und bestens in Schuss.

Die Anreise sehr einfach, wir wurden von Rose am Treffpunkt empfangen und zum Haus geleitet, auf diesem Weg vielen Dank, auch Gilberto für die guten Insider-Tips !

Haus und Garten sind wie beschrieben, gemütliches Wohnzimmer mit Elektro- Kamin ( war einige Abende notwendig ) ruhiges Schlafzimmer und großes Bad.

Die Küche ist sehr gut ausgestattet und alles sehr sauber.

Den Garten und Grill haben wir Dank des guten Wetters fast jeden Tag genutzt.

Alles in allem eine perfekte Alternative zu Schnee und Kälte !

Wir sind sicher das wir wiederkommen !!

Warme Oktobertage auf Madeira

  • 5 of 5

Wir waren das erste Mal auf Madeira und sind sowohl von der Insel als auch vom Casa Escola Velha begeistert !

Im Haus entspricht eigentlich alles der Beschreibung, das W-LAN ist etwas langsamer als in Deutschland aber vollkommen ausreichend.

Da wir erst Abends angekommen sind haben wir den Empfang durch Rose am Treffpunkt und die Hausübergabe als sehr hilfreich empfunden!

Das Haus ist blitzsauber sehr gut ausgestattet und hat eine tolle Atmosphäre. Der Garten mit Bourgainvillea in allen Farben, Bananen und Palmen absolut erhohlsam. Kohle und Holz für den Grill sind gleich um die Ecke zu bekommen.

Wir können das Haus mit guten Gewissen weiter Empfehlen und sind sicher wieder zu kommen.

Komfortabler Urlaub im alten Schulhaus

  • 5 of 5

Meine Frau und ich haben wundervolle Tage im alten Schulhaus verbracht !

Rose hat uns am vereinbarten Treffpunkt abgeholt , zum Haus gebracht und dort angekommen alles perfekt erklärt, Hierfür vielen Dank, auch für die Geduld mit unserem Englisch !!

Alles war wie beschrieben, das Haus blitzsauber, sehr gut ausgestattet und dank der Elektroheizung auch sehr gemütlich und warm obwohl wir auch einige kühle Nächte mit " nur 17 " Grad hatten.

Der Garten sehr gepflegt und die Sträucher voller Blüten, auch haben wir die gerade reifen hauseigenen Bananen sehr genossen !

Die in der Hausanleitung beschriebenen Restaurants sind eine große Hilfe, wir haben dort mehrmals sehr gut gegessen !

Wir haben das Haus schon unseren Bekannten weiter empfohlen und werden auch selber wiederkommen.

Casa Escola Velha - wirklich viel Flair

  • 4 of 5

Wir hatten 3 Wochen Erholung im Casa. Wurden von Rose abgeholt und zum Haus gebracht. Alles sauber und gemütlich. 3 Wochen Sonne, haben viele Levada-Wanderungen direkt vor der Haustüre gemacht.

Alles tiptop, ausser ein paar ältere, verkalkte Gläser. Wir können diese Unterkunft gerne weiterempfehlen. Vielen Dank
