Excellent accomodation for magnificent holidays

  • 5 of 5

We are very grateful to Rui Velosa for the wonderful 10 days we spent in this unique house in Seixal. The fantastic view, the tastefully furnished rooms, the perfectly equipped kitchen, the warm hearted helpfulness and generosity of our host, the peacefull and charming village in that impressive landscape - everything made our stay unforgettable and made us instantly wishing to come back as soon as possible. During our stay we enjoyed a caring service and found little suprises like local bread, wine and fruits and little sometings for the children. With two couples, two children aged 3,5 years and a baby of 8 month we felt very comfortable in the spacious house and the garden, which is very well suited as well as playground and as spot for the deck chair to just lay back and observe the waves. I will never forget watching the sunrise over the moutains and sea from the terrace, breathing the rich sea breeze. Half of our holidays we spent relaxing at Seixal, the other half we visited the beautiful island. Via tunnel even Funchal and surroundings very easily accessable by car. One of the most beautiful adventures with the kids was to explore the dark green forest in the valley Chao da Ribeira just a five minute drive from Seixal and to stop at its excellent restaurant for a delicious real Madeiran dinner. Eventhough all these superlatives in my rating might sound slightly not authentic I can only recommend this place as a perfect holiday destination.

Una semana magnífica

  • 5 of 5

La casa es excepcional, con todas las comodidades y decorada con muy buen gusto. Seixal es un pueblo encantador , con pequeña playa y piscina natural, buen restaurante, y situado en la zona norte, cerca de la entrada a cañones , levadas y senderos. Ideal para barranquistas.

Comentario Casa doJoão da Eira Seixal

  • 5 of 5

We have been staying in the house the end of april and it was hard to leave: a magnificent house with magnificent views in the nice village of Seixal where it was just a small walk to go down to the beach. Though we came to Madeira to explore the island and its Canyons, it would almost have been enough to just sit in the garden end enjoy the views and sunrises. If possible we certainly come back.

Tolles Haus mit wunderschönem Blick

  • 5 of 5

Das Haus ist sehr schön, perfekt ausgestattet, sauber, mit traumhaften Blicken auf das Meer und die Berge...

Dazu ein sehr netter und hilfsbereiter Vermieter. Flexible Anreise- und Aufenthaltszeiten Ein leckerer Obstkorb zur Begrüßung und ein frisches selbstgebackenes Brot direkt aus Seixal waren kleine Highlights.

Das Haus liegt sehr ruhig mitten in dem kleinen Ort Seixal. Zwei nette Restaurants mit leckerem Essen sind zu Fuß in 5 Minuten erreichbar. Wenn man die großen Tourismuszentren meiden möchte, stattdessen etwas Ruhe sucht und "Land und Leute" kennen lernen möchte, ist man hier bestens aufgehoben. Zudem sind viele tolle Wanderungen oder das schöne Meeresschwimmbecken in Porto Moniz mit dem Auto in relativ kurzer Zeit zu erreichen.

Das Haus ist uneingeschränkt empfehlenswert!

Lovely house for winter holiday

  • 5 of 5

The house is beautifully situated in Seixal with superb sea and moutainview. The house can accomodate a group of 8 including a baby without feeling crowded.The equipment of the kitchen is modern and the rooms are nicely decorated. The house has good facilities for children: a bathtub, babycot and high chair. The garden is very suitable for young children. Seixal is situated next to one of the main roads of the islands, most of the touristic highlights on the island are within an hours' drive from the house. Ten minutes to Porto Moniz for more restaurants, musea and groceries. The owner is very friendly and extremely helpful. Really good place for a winter visit, although a raincoat can come in handy in the mountains some days.
