Wonderful house in a stunning location

  • 5 of 5

The chalet is set in a beautiful location high in the mountains with stunning views across the valley. It is very well equipped and spacious. The owner is helpful, friendly and quick to reply to any questions via email. We had to ring him as we couldn’t find the property so he came out in his car to meet us and we followed him there, good job as it’s not easy to find but well worth it! It is wonderfully quiet with no street lights so perfect if you want a peaceful holiday. The balcony has fantastic views and is sheltered so perfect if it’s a bit wet or windy. There was a welcome pack of wine, some local spirit, sweets and cake, just what we needed on arrival! There are walks to do straight from the house, and plenty of shops and restaurants less than 10 minutes drive away in Sao Vicente. In all we loved the place and will definitely return!

Recomendo o Chalet da Melaria

  • 5 of 5

Adorei a estadia. Casa acolhedora, bem decorada, confortável e com equipamentos electrodomésticos adequadas a estadia em família.

Apresenta condições excepcionais de ambiente calmo, rodeado da floresta Laurissilva, onde despertamos com o som dos pássaros a cantarem.

Wunderschöne Umgebung und ein wirklich tolles Haus

  • 5 of 5

Die Kommunikation klappte schon vor der Anreise super und auch als wir angekommen sind verstanden wir uns auch ohne Worte ganz gut!

Er hatte einen Traditionellen Kuchen und Schnaps für uns bereit gestellt.

Man fühlt sich gleich wohl und alles ist vorhanden, Kaffee, Salz, Öl auch das Bad ist mit Shampoo, Föhn und Handtüchern ausgestattet.

Es liegen Zeitschriften aus und ein paar Postkarten.

Die Aussicht ist einfach super und es riecht immer traumhaft.

Ich empfehle allen die etwas außerhalb ihre Ruhe haben möchten dieses Haus!

chalet au calme, bien équipé, dans un trés beau site a proximité de Sao Vicente.

  • 5 of 5

Accès assez difficile (tout est relatif) mais vue exceptionnelle sur l'ensemble de la vallée. Accueil très sympathique par le propriétaire apiculteur attentioné. la poncha (apéro local) sur la terrasse le soir reste un très bon souvenir.

grüne Auszeit in den Bergen

  • 4 of 5

Die Unterkunft liegt abgelegen, fernab von sämtlichen Häusern. Man gelangt das letzte Stück über eine Schotterstraße zu dem Haus. Umgeben ist es von Zitronen- und Eukalyptusbäumen.

Unser Vermieter war sehr gastfreundlich, neben Eiern und Wein, gab er uns einen typisch madeiranischen Kuchen und Bonbons. Nur sein Englisch ist leider sehr dürfitg. Aber mit Händen, Füßen und ein paar Worten konnten wir uns ausreichend verständigen.

Die Wohnung ist sehr geräumig und es fehlte uns an nichts.

Kleiner Hinweis: die Wohnung liegt weit oben und eher im "feuchteren" Teil der Insel. Unser Aufenthalt war im März und unsere Handtücher ließen sich nur schwer trocknen.
