Overview

About the property

Situated on top of a private cliff on the western coast of Madeira, our Quinta do Espigão is surrounded by all the natural beauty of this delightful island. The architecture of the generously sized house shows the influence of Portuguese and Moorish elements and reflects ideas of modern art. It is surrounded by a grove of pine trees, a beautiful garden and a little vineyard which will before long supply local wine. The house offers two double rooms on the ground floor and one single room up in the tower. There are two bathrooms, a washing-machine and a large kitchen opening up to the living room with a big table and an open fire. In cooler weather, a wood-fired floor heating in all the rooms provides comfortable warmth. Two sheltered terraces in front of the Quinta with romantic fountains offer a breathtaking view of the Atlantic Ocean.

Beautiful property!

  • 5 of 5

Myself and my husband stayed here in May 2017 for my 30th birthday. The villa is absolutely beautiful, even better in real life than in the pictures. Very secluded and out of the way of the usual tourist spots. Willy was incredibly friendly and gave us lots of useful information for places to go (and to avoid) during our stay, and offered us fresh herbs and salad from his garden. Don't be put off by some of the reviews which mention the road down to the house, we had a Volkswagon Up as a rental car and it managed the road fine.

There are several restaurants near to the villa and Willy was able to give us local knowledge on them. We really enjoyed Restaurante O Forno, we ate 3 courses as it was so good. The restaurant at the lighthouse at Ponto do Pargo was not very good when we ate there. There is a supermarket around 30 minutes away in Calheta which is easy enough to get to by car and we nipped back a few times during our stay. Calheta also has lovely places to eat along the harbour where you can sit outside and enjoy the weather.

Can't recommend this place enough and hope to be back.

Sehr empfehlenswert

  • 5 of 5

Unser Gastgeber Willy hat mit seinem Ferienhaus nicht nur einen traumhaften Wohnort geschaffen sondern auch durch seine sehr angenehme und gastfreundliche Art ein Gefühl von "Zuhause" geschaffen.

Ich möchte ihm dafür nochmal ganz herzlich danken.

Mit besten Grüßen, Gabi und Hasan

Une semaine hors du temps

  • 5 of 5

Nous avons passé une 'semaine de rêve' dans cette maison du bout du monde.

Un grand merci pour le propriétaire, Willy, qui nous a reçu très chaleureusement.

L'endroit est très beau, superbement placé face à l'océan, la maison est parfaite.

Schönes Haus in einzigartiger Lage

  • 5 of 5

Wir danken Willy und Luciana sehr für diesen wunderschönen Aufenthalt. Das Haus liegt auf einem Kliff in ca. 200m Höhe mit einem einzigartigen Ausblick auf den Ozean. Das Haus liegt sehr ruhig in Alleinlage. Nur ein paar Bauern sind um einen herum und einige Falken fliegen am Himmel. Das Haus ist mit allem was man braucht ausgestattet. Uns hat es an nichts gefehlt. Willy hat uns mit Brennholz versorgt, so dass wir abends den Kamin anmachen konnten und auf dem Grundstück gibt es allerlei nützliche Kräuter die man verwenden kann. Willy ist äußerst hilfsbereit und ein angenehmer Gesprächspartner, wahrt dabei aber auch die nötige Distanz.

Wir haben uns sehr gut aufgehoben gefühlt und können das Haus und Willy als Vermieter weiterempfehlen.

Empfehlungen:

Einkaufen waren wir im Supermarkt von Calheta, der immer auch wild gefangenen frischen Fisch da hatte, teilweise auch Bioprodukte, teilweise ausgezeichneten Käse, neben dem Standardsortiment, oder sogar das Deutsche Brot von einem deutschen Bäcker in Funchal. Ebenso gab es die notwendigen Sushizutaten in verhältnismässig guter Qualität. Ein solches Angebot haben wir in anderen Supermärkten nicht gefunden.

Das Haus ist ein Traum! Wunderschön gelegen, Natur pur, unglaublicher Ausblick und Willy der Hausherr ist sehr zuvorkommend, sympathisch und überrascht einen immer mal wieder mit frischen Tomaten etc. aus dem Garten. :-) Vielen Dank, wir haben es genossen!
