Spacious house and garden in a beatiful location

  • 5 of 5

The property was lovely, the ground floor all ours! Beautiful garden terrace with fantastic views over the Sao Vicente valley, as far as the sea to the north, and south and east to the wooded central mountain ridge. The kitchen area was a little cluttered but adequate for our needs. There is a snackbar across the road, and a supermarket a short walk away. Sao Vicente is a little too far to walk comfortably, but is 5 minutes by car, and has a good selection of bakeries, restaurants and a supermarket. We managed to explore most of the island by car, helped by the many new roads and tunnels.

There is an open stair to the upstairs, where the owner comes at times, but his presence wasn't particularly intrusive. Teresa, who met us and handed over the keys, was friendly and helpful, and it was nice to have a welcome pack of groceries and fruit waiting for us. We would thoroughly recommend this restored manor house.

Beautiful house with mountain view

  • 5 of 5

We had a lovely time at Casa da Ribeira Seca. The view towards the mountains was Top. I think the best of all Madeira! The village was nearby, 10 minutes drive. The house was big and had a warm feeling with lots of interesting paintings, very authentic and suited us fine. Very good beds. Everything was very clean. When we arrived there was a welcome packet with food and drinks. Teresa, the caretaker of the house showed us around when we arrived. She was wonderfull and came to visit us a couple of times to inform if everything was o.k.

We hope to come back again.

Urlaub im Paradies

  • 5 of 5

Diese Ferienwohnung hat keine Wünsche offen gelassen. Geschmackvolle Einrichtung, bequeme Betten, paradiesische Ruhe, ein Garten voller Blumen und eine großartige Aussicht auf die Berge haben dazu beigetragen, dass wir uns gut erholt haben. Wir haben jeden Tag genossen! Allerdings sollte man keine Angst vor Eidechsen haben, denn die wohnen auch dort. Wir können diese Wohnung und die Vermittleragentur OurMadeira uneingeschränkt empfehlen. Auch auf das Mietwagen-Angebot der Agentur sollte man eingehen, alles leif schnell und problemlos ab.

Wonderful situation and very comfortable

  • 5 of 5

We had a very enjoyable 10 day stay at Casa da Ribeira Seca. The property is situated well above the road with great views and is very quiet. Very comfortable bed and a good shower. Teresa, who showed us round the property and called in from time to time, was charming and helpful. We would gladly stay here again.

Immediately next to the house is a café/restaurant that can provide you daily with bread and meals.

Just over 2 Km away is the traditional village of São Vicente, which has been pedestrianized and maintained as originally. Here you will find all the facilities you may require, including cafés, restaurants, pharmacy, banks, supermarkets and a medical centre.

Under a further 1 Km away you reach the ocean, where there are more cafés, restaurants and bakeries.

Access to the expressway and motorway is less than 1 Km away, making it easy to reach other parts of the island.

Funchal, the capital, and the airport are respectively, an easy 40 and 55 minute drive away.
