Casa Rosada without a car

  • 4 out of 5
  • Review Submitted: 24-Aug-2009
  • Date of Stay: Apr 2008
Have stayed here twice - once with a car and once without a car. Great accommodation and wonderful views, but the very steep approach might be a problem for some, as with my wife.Persuaded her to go back a second time , but this time without a car as, during our first stay, we had seen a local bus come up to the nearby restaurant each day. It was only during our second visit that we discovered that it was a school bus NOT a service bus! We still had an enjoyable time but, then, we are keen walkers and the walk to the nearest service bus kept us very fit.

Owner's Response: Hello and many thanks for giving us your experience of holidaying at Casa Rosada without a car. Good on you! It will be useful for others who are fit walkers and enjoy a challenge! Sorry the school bus wasn't as you hoped but glad you sourced the local bus service.
It's worth mentioning that Casa Rosada is equally ideal for those who are not energetic and just want to chill out but it's definitely best to hire a car (we can do this for you). As described, the accommodation is great and the views just stunning!

A great family villa

  • Review Submitted: 26-Nov-2013
  • Date of Stay: Feb 2013
We thank you for our stay at Casa Rosada. A very nice villa. We loved the sea view and our children especially loved playing on the terrace in the sunshine.
We like "Loja de Cha" tea house in Funchal, the fish market there too; the mountains; Jardim do Mar promenade and lizards and Joe's bar; the sea pools and waves at Porto Moniz; lots of levada walks (Rabacal especially) and "Casa de Cha o Fio" near Ponte do Pargo lighthouse.
Thank you for good house notes. Continente supermarket in Ribeira Brava proved a very useful, fairly local hypermarket with good parking and easy to find.

Up high and sunny

  • 4 out of 5
  • Review Submitted: 28-Jun-2013
  • Date of Stay: Feb 2013
We found Casa Rosada clean, well equipped and a good place to stay. Our children loved running around in the garden - not possible in Feb in England! The view from high up was great, we enjoyed watching the paragliders.

Owing to the house being high up, it could get quite cool at night in February. However there were electric heaters, and an excellent wood burning stove and a plentiful supply of logs, so it was not a problem.

Most people comment on the driveway approach - it is a bit of a fuss, but not daunting for a competent driver in a mid size car. Don't hire a Mercedes E Class or Ford Galaxy though! If it were not for the drive we would give the house 5 stars, but don't let it put you off.

The house is well located, with easy access East towards Funchal, close to a big supermarket nearby, and good for access to the North and West for great walks and scenery. The neighbours were friendly.
Owner's Response: Many thanks for your comments which will be of great use to anyone considering staying with us in future.
We're delighted you all had such a good holiday.

First visit to Madeira by guests from Finland....

  • Review Submitted: 01-Apr-2013
  • Date of Stay: Dec 2012
We escaped the Finnish winter for a two-week vacation in Madeira. This was our first visit to Madeira but definitely not the last. The weather was much better than we expected.
We spent most of the days walking on the levadas and in the mountains and we found that Madeira truly is a paradise for walkers.
The location of Casa Rosada is splendid and the house itself is really well planned.
We enjoyed the stay here a lot! Thank you!

The perfect place for a relaxing honeymoon....

  • Review Submitted: 01-Apr-2013
  • Date of Stay: Aug 2012
After a busy and exciting period (new house, getting married), we were looking forward to a relaxing honeymoon. Casa Rosada was the perfect place to relax and also to explore Madeira.
What we really liked:
Walks up the road behind the house on to the levadas
Fantastic views from the terrace
The well-stocked bookshelves (we left one of our own summer reads, Child 44)
Well equipped kitchen, sunloungers
WiFi set
We also recommend the walk up at Pico do Areiro to Pico Ruivo and back; quite demanding but highly rewarding!
Thank you for a lovely holiday!

The perfect holiday destination. Casa Rosada is well away from the bustle of Funchal, though thanks to the new road system everywhere is now within easy reach. Moreover, some of the island's top attractions are only a short drive away: within ten minutes you can be on Madeiras only golden sandy beach at Calheta, which also has a large marina; 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. Arco da Calheta is served by buses (15 minutes steep walk to bus-stops), but car hire is highly recommended to enjoy all the area has to offer.

La destination parfaite pour vos vacances. Casa Rosada est loin de l'animation de Funchal mais tout se trouve à proximité grâce au nouveau réseau routier. De plus, certaines des meilleures attractions touristiques de l'île sont à quelques minutes de route : vous pouvez être en 10 mins à l'unique plage de sable doré de Calheta et à sa grande marina ; ou à Rabaça en 10 mins aussi.
