Fabulous location

  • 4 of 5

The cottage is beautifully situated with a lovely terraced area to the front, where we enjoyed the superb view, either while eating at the picnic table or relaxing on the indoor/outdoor chairs. However, the road to the cottage is very steep with sharp bends, so not for the faint-hearted!

Inside, the bedroom was just as expected, but we felt that the downstairs accommodation could do with a little updating. Also, the lights provided are extremely dim, so arriving as we did in the dark was a little tricky! Bring a powerful torch!

For two people, the accommodation is sufficiently spacious, but with a third person was a bit cramped. However, we were very grateful for the provided airbed so our son could join us.

Overall, if you enjoy mountain scenery and peace and quiet, this is an ideal location.

  • 5 of 5

das haus können wir wirklich empfehlen. es steht abgelegen und die aussicht ist überwältigend. im haus ist alles was man für einen angenehmen aufenthalt braucht und in der nacht ist es sehr still. ein sehr romantischer platz. für zwei personen mit interesse an wanderungen ein idealer ort. man kann aber auch einfach dort den tag geniessen.

vielen vielen dank.

Prix imbatable

  • 3 of 5

Prix le plus bas à Madère. En contrepartie : pas de télévision, pas d'internet, pas de table pour déjeuner à l'intérieur, lumières 40 W. Sinon pour des randonneurs c'est valable, en pleine nature dominant la vallée et à 5 mn du bord de mer et de ses restaurants tout à volonté pour 6 euros (12 h à 17 h) à Sao Vicente.

Petite maison sur les hauteurs de Sao Vicente avec une vue imprenanble.

  • 5 of 5

Séjour très agréable dans une magnifique région de Madère. La maison se situe à proximité de nombreux départs de ballades.

Située sur les hauteurs de Sao Vicente, n’hésitez pas à vous y rendre si vous aimez le calme.

Maison simple correspond à la description de l'annonce.

Un charmant cottage, avec magnifique vue

  • 5 of 5

Nous avons passé une formidable semaine dans ce cottage, sur les hauteurs de Sao Vicente. La maison est très confortable et joliment meublé pour 2 personnes. Une voiture est indispensable pour l'atteindre (comme souvent à Madère). La propriétaire est sympathique et discrète.

La vue est absolument magnifique, lorsqu'on ouvre les volets le matin ! Une passiflore pousse tranquillement sur la balustrade du jardin... Le paradis !

Les très bonnes routes permettent d'être rapidement à Porto Moniz, Ribeira Brava, Funchal... De nombreuses randonnées sont accessibles. Nous n'avons pas eu beaucoup de chance avec le temps mais nous avons trouvé des activités pour tous les jours !
