Autumn Holiday

  • Review Submitted: 06-Dec-2013
  • Date of Stay: Sep 2013
We spent our Autumn holiday for the second time in Arco da Calheta and love this wonderful place and thank you very much for staying in your wonderful and comfortable house.
We had a great time despite some rainy days. We enjoyed the pool and particular il your hike along the Levadas. Our trip to the Piscina natural of Porto Moniz and the tropical gardens in Monte.

Golf at Palheiro

  • Review Submitted: 25-Sep-2013
  • Date of Stay: Sep 2013
We have thoroughly enjoyed your beautifully designed house, thank you.
We enjoyed golf at Palheiro. It is well worth hiring a buggy as we carried our bags on the first day and felt the effects afterwards! The 17th is a very tough hole of the back!!
We would recommend Convento das Vinhos restuarant . Good staff and good food.
The Vista Prazerus is also well worth a visit. The skewered beef is strongly recommended
We also recommend the levada walks which allowed us to see Madeira life close to.

Wonderful vacation

  • Review Submitted: 25-Sep-2013
  • Date of Stay: Aug 2013
I would like to thank you on behalf of my family for letting is stay at your house in Madeira. We had a wonderful vacation.
Madeira is a beautiful island. It is clean, the people are very kind and helpful and the scenery is breathtaking.
Our first thought when we arrived at Casa das Flores, was that this definitely wasn't gonna be our first and last stay.
Casa das Flores is offering so much luxury that we were stunned for the first few days. We've enjoyed the swimming pool, the BBQ, the scenery, the evenings while playing cards and most of all the quietness. We were stunned when we arrived and a little bit sad when we had to leave.
The house was clean, fully equipped with whatever we needed and even more than that, in short it felt like home.
Vanda and 'her crew' were polite and thorough in their work. She received us with a kind politeness that I've never experienced before so she is a true ambassador for you and your house.

The pool is amazing

  • Review Submitted: 22-Jun-2013
  • Date of Stay: Jun 2013
What a wonderful house. Our expectations were exceeded. We had great holidays here on Madeira. The pool is amazing and your kitchen is a dream. It was a lot of fun to feed the lizards with melon and your interesting Madeiran cherries. We had a fantastic experience with dolphins at the sea of Calheta. We liked the Aquarium at Porto Moniz and my brother dived in the sea.

The perfect holiday destination. Situated 260 metres above sea level and accessed by its own private road amongst banana plantations and small holdings, Casa das Flores sits on a terrace in the pretty, rural village of Calheta well away from the bustle of Funchal. Thanks to the new road system anywhere on the island is now within easy reach and some of the island's top attractions are only a short drive away. Within 5 minutes' drive you reach Calheta with its protected beach of golden sand, a large marina offering dolphin/whale watching excursions and deep sea fishing boats for charter, a hotel, supermarket, art gallery and good choice of restaurants; or 15 minutes will bring you to the laurel, levada and waterfall wonderland of Rabaçal and the wide open expanses of the Paul da Serra - fantastic walking terrain. Car hire is necessary to enjoy all that this area has to offer and to explore the beautiful sub tropical island of Madeira.

Other Activities: Calheta Marina houses several superb deep sea fishing and whale dolphin/whale-watching boats , scuba diving is also available -ask for details

Golf: The owners are members at Palheiro golf, a reduced green fee can be obtained for guests.
