Sleeps 5/6 3 Bedrooms 2 Bathrooms 2 Terraces Ocean Mountain Views

Appreciation submitted 21 July, 2014

Review #8833007 'Très bien'

'Maison ancienne remise au goût du jour. Beaucoup de personnalité. Près d'une bananeraie. Près de la plage (gros galets). Très calme. Totalement équipée. Endroit très reposant avec un côté balnéaire bien sympathique mais sans la folie de la ville ni les touristes. A proximité (vers la jetée), bons bars à mojito et caïpirinha (et ambiance jeune mais pouvant convenir à des 'vieux' comme nous). Bon restaurants à Paul do Mar (Sol e Mar) et Jardim do Mar (Tarmar).'

Sea view BBQ on terrace with sunset...

  • 5 of 5

We really enjoyed our 2 weeks stay. The location in the middle of banana fields provides much privacy but we had a fantastic view from the 2 terraces to the sea and breathtaking sunsets. My personal highlight were the sea view BBQs. Also a good place to discover the north of the island. House was in perfect conditions, uncomplicated rental and a lovely landlord couple made this stay unforgettable. We will recomment this place to friends and come back.

10/10 would visit again.

  • 5 of 5

We stayed at Sunny house in September - right at the harvesting time. It was nice to watch the bananas being harvested as the house was located righy in the middle of banana field. This place offered everything we were asking for - still, peaceful life in a little village, fully equiped house, very nice and helpful landlord. Tho, this house is not for those who seek 5star apartments, but for those who value peace and simplicity. The top level terace was awesome - after a long and exhausting day traveling around the island, it was a place where we could enjoy our meal while looking at the ocean. When we'll go to Madeira again, Sunnu house is definately going to be our first choice!

gemütliche, geräumige und ruhige Ferienwohnung

  • 5 of 5

Schon das zweite Mal haben wir das Sunny House west gewählt. Wir waren diesmal zu viert dort, Freunde, und haben uns sehr wohl gefühlt.

Die Zimmer sind gemütlich, sauber und gepflegt und nach der Schlüsselübergabe und dem Zeigen und Erklären, wo alles ist, hatten wir eine Woche die Wohnung für uns, konnten jedoch jederzeit per Tel. oder mail Kontakt aufnehmen mit Iva und Paul Abbiati, die beide sehr freundlich sind...Die Wohnung ist günstig und es ist alles da, was man braucht...und die Lage ist super, nahe am Meer, etwas erhöht, so dass wir den Sound der Wellen geniessen konnten und wunderbare Sonnenuntergänge über dem Meer vom Fenster aus miterleben konnten....

dépaysement et exotisme

  • 5 of 5

Sunny house est très spatieuse, plus belle encore que sur les photos, nichée dans un petit champs de bananes à flanc de mer et de montagne. Elle est bien exposée, sans trop de vis à vis. Elle est calme, décorée avec goût et raffinement. Nos jeunes enfants (4, 7, 9 ans) se sont sentis tout de suite très bien et ont adoré passer 15 jours dans cette maison exotique et dépaysante, tout à l'image de Madère. De plus, Sunny house est bien située pour visiter toute l'île. Nous avons été tous conquis par cette maison et par la gentillesse de leurs propriétaire. Nous la recommandons vivement.

Close to nature: still a centre for fishing and agriculture with a new fishing harbour and many banana fields 'Paul' is now more famous for ‘the feel-good factor’ – peace and relaxation in the country on the hottest Madeiran coastline with the most sunshine. This means that all can relax, swim and walk in these sunnier and hotter climes all year round! Popular amongst walkers, fishermen and swimmers with several safe swimming areas and closeness to famous mountain and levada walks PR 6 and the 'Rabacal/25 fountains' PR 19 walk. Attractions include white sand beaches next to Calheta Marina 10 minutes drive, a rum factory Engenhos with a museum, Prazeres village with 17th century church, fruit and vegetable market and ‘Quinta Pedagogica’ - a free animal park, art gallery and cider house! Plus, there is the award-winning international art centre: ‘Casa das Mudas’ & UNESCO-protected Ancient Laurisilva Forest. Whale/dolphin-watching and big-game fishing boats operate from Calheta marina.

Other Activities: Levada and forest walks
