Authentic Madeiran feel; good access for Calheta (where we got whale-watching trips), levada (2 minutes walk away), and mountains. Funchal only takes an hour.
Comfortable bed and well-equipped kitchen (although no oven [except microwave] or dishwasher [not that important with 2 people])
Quiet location, nice sitting area with view of the ocean. We had meals outside at end of October.
Spacious fridge/freezer. Shower and toilet facility small but fine. There is a wood-fired stove that we planned to use to roast the sweet chestnuts we found but didn’t get around to it. Nice feature though.
Enjoyed being at the western side of the island. Prazeres seems to have preserved the traditional Madeiran lifestyle.
We were very pleased to receive a box of home-grown fruit and vegetables on arrival which lasted the week. And a pot of the owner’s honey!
We had a great 11 night stay in September 2018. The villa is just as it appears in the photos - a high class very private villa with everything you could need. The feeling of space outside was wonderful as you have panoramic views of the Atlantic all around the garden and you are not overlooked. The garden is also very well maintained with a selection of fruit trees we were allowed to pick fruits from. The village it is in has a lovely feeling and the locals were all so friendly. In the Village there are a number of great restaurants as well as a supermarket which are all with in easy walking distance. The larger supermarket is about a 10 minute drive away which stocks everything you could need. Every Sunday there is a farmers market about a 5 minute walk from the villa where you can support the local growers of the island. We bought a scrummy orange cake and fruit from there. Louis and Delila who look after the property were so helpful. They gave us lots of really useful information on places to visit and nothing was too much trouble for them. We were able to contact them at any time if we had any questions. I can truly recommend this villa and location for a wonderful relaxing holiday in the beautiful island of Madeira.
