Lovely views and friendly owners
We enjoyed our stay at Casa Albatross. The island was beautiful with some great walks. The apartment was spacious with lovely views. The owners were helpful with tips on where to visit and where to park in Funchal!
Thank you for the nice sentence! We are happy that you could enjoy your holiday though it was sometime raining and because we have had a cold can't explain a lot.
You are welcome!
We found the apartment very roomy and clean. Beautiful views down to the sea below. Good sized pato
We found the owners friendly and helpful and could communicate well in english language.
Lovely apartment with beautiful views
We enjoyed our stay in this very well-equipped and stylish apartment. Christa was very helpful before and during our visit. We spent some of our time walking the local levadas, and my husband, a keen trail-runner, found some challenging local routes. We would like to return and stay longer next time.
Many thanks for your nice words.
We are happy, that you enjoyed your holiday.
It was also very helpfull for us to see that you were happy in the mountains from "Ponta do Sol" without a rented car uesing taxis or the very rare buses which stops on the busstop at the beginning from "Travessa do Caminho do Castanheiro". You can find a busplan under
Maybe see you soon again.
You are welcome :-)
Tolle Location, herrlicher Meerblick, die gesamte Insel ist ein Naturpraradies😊
Grosszügiges Apartement, liebevoll gestaltet mit viel Licht
Tolle Wohnung die alls hat was man braucht, am Berghang mit weitem Blick in ruhigem Wohngebiet. Küche voll ausgestattet. Zur Begrüssung Aufmeksamkeiten auf den Tischen (Danke !!) Abends sangen uns die Hundchen der Nachbarschaft in den Schlaf. Auto ist ein muss.
Empfehlen Restaurant "Dos Amigos" nett, gut, preiswert
Danke für kurze prägnante und klare Bewertung, auch die Hervorhebung von Dos Amigos hat uns gefreut, die leider viel zu oft zu kurz kommt. Gerne wieder, ciao
Großzügige FeWo mit fantastischem Ausblick.
Es freut uns, dass es Euch in unserer "Casa Albatros" gefallen hat und fanden Euren Eintrag im Apartment-Gästebuch:".....die Gefahr ist groß, dass wir Wiederholungstäter werden" sehr erfreulich.
Completed in December 2012, it is located in the sun-kissed south-west of an original Madeiran village at about 400 m above sea level between banana plantations, sugar cane fields and vegetable cultivation.
The village of "Ponta do Sol" extends over three hills: Lombada, Ponta do Sol Monte and Canhas.
The "Casa Albatros" is located between Monte and Canhas.
The house 'Casa Albatros' is easily accessible by car from the airport on at least two-lane roads, so that no Bergfahrkünste be required for arrival.
The apartment has its own separate property access and its own separate apartment entrance.
We as a landlord live directly at the apartment, so that we can help and advise.
The fantastic sea views are replaced by the full day sun and in the evening by house lights over the rolling hills of Ponta do Sol. In the winter months you can see the sunset in the sea in a cloudless sky.
The approximately 75 square meter apartment has two sun terraces with sun loungers, chairs and table, a garden with passion fruit plants, ornamental shrubs and fruit trees, between which a bank is embedded to linger.
The dining room of the apartment is covered with panoramic windows and a fantastic sea view.
For self-catering by regular two people (up to 3 people) is a fitted kitchen with high quality electrical appliances.
There is also an HD TV and free wireless internet access, which can be used on the cozy couches with a spacious living room table.
In addition to a fitness bike, there is also a table tennis table, a sauna, a Turkish steam bath and a shower cubicle with hydromassage for the sporty visitors.
In the shower there is a radio and additional lighting.
Similarly, the sleeping area is equipped with a radio and a CD system.
From the house a levada hike continues to the west of the island. By car, the main Levada trails in the west and northwest can be approached in a timely manner.
Also paragliding is offered in the neighboring village of Calheta with guidance and recommendations by a German. There is the possibility of a double jump for the inexperienced for 75 €, which is carried out with ajose experienced paragliding teacher in the course of 15 - 30 minutes. Sturdy footwear for landing is important.
The divers come directly in Ponta do Sol at their expense, since a diving school has settled directly on the beach. Contact details can be requested from me.
The sea access, which is designed for swimmers, is guarded by lifeguards during the bathing season. There is also a sea access via a flat rolled stone beach in the open Atlantic.
Sunshades made of palm fronds are present, including wooden deckchairs. The landlords of the 'Casa Albatros' can be borrowed on request free beach towels.
During the summer season, there is a kiosk right on the beach, which makes lingering with live musical events every evening.
Canoe and pedal boaters get their money, the same sports equipment are awarded directly on the beach.
The sanitary facilities and changing rooms are regularly maintained. A beach restaurant with kiosk section provides for the physical well-being.
Golfing is also practiced on two existing golf courses on the island.
For the rental cars parking is available in front of the house. Rental cars can be rented on site for € 25 daily. From the airport you will be picked up personally by the car rental company or the landlord.
A safe in the side room of the 'Casa Albatros' is available for the travel documents, the camera or precious jewelery. Furthermore, fire extinguishers and smoke detectors ensure your safety.
The Ponta do Sol Shopping Center has several restaurants. Likewise, in the small pedestrian zone towards the beach is a jewelry store for z. B. To find souvenirs.
In the Casa de Povo (community college) there is a small library u. a. with German books, changing picture exhibitions and musical events.
The old pharmacy in the pedestrian area of Ponta do Sol has now been converted after several years of vacancy into a thriving restaurant with typical Madeiran accessories and bar. Likewise, the bar "Smallhouse" has established itself with fancy cocktails there.
A small grocery store is located below the church, another at the Ponta do Sol shopping center and the BP petrol station in the center of Ponta do Sol near the fountain. Two supermarkets named "Continente" can be easily reached by car in the neighboring town of Ribeira Brava.
Furthermore, there is a supermarket called "Pingo Doce" right next to the tunnel access to the small fishing port
