Why Rita Sol/Manuel Pereira chose Tabua

A small and gentle Valley, green and calm without any industry or Commerce except agriculture.

The 2.5 km in the village of Ribeira Brava is very well-equipped supermarkets and all kinds of trade.

Excellent climate all year because it stays in the sub-tropical South coast and 100 m of altitude from the sea.

Between the sea and the mountains, good for those who love the beach and strolling through the levadas and paths of island

Fantastic holiday

  • 5 of 5

Manuel was a wonderful host. There wasn't anything he wouldn't do for us.

The villa was a little tricky to find, but Manuel's son came out to meet us and guide us back to the property.

The villa was lovely and the pool was great. We hope to return as soon as we can.

Thank you so much Manuel

Fantastic house!

  • 5 of 5

Four of us shared this house for a week. It's ideally situated on the sunny side of the island. The three bedrooms were perfect for our needs. Despite the inclement weather we managed a few dips in the pool as well which was a great luxury. Wi-Fi worked well. We loved having the outdoor space to sit and eat / play games and everything was just right. Manuel was very helpful and we knew we could contact him if there were any issues. The washing machine was handy for washing the mud off out clothes after running in the mountains. All in all we are sad to be leaving and would wholeheartedly recommend staying here.

Owner's Response: Dear Guests, We greatly appreciate your very helpful and friendly commentary on your stay. It was very nice to meet you and to talk about your interest in discovering the island, as well as the competitions that participated. In fact the weather did not help much, however we noticed your satisfaction and although in January February used the heated pool. This is very important to us! Whenever you wish, you are very welcome!

We would echo what has already been written about the villa.

We didn't meet Manuel or Rita as they were also on holiday, all contact with them was excellent.

We really liked being away from the tourist spots, the villa being in a working agricultural valley,

We had a fabulous week on an incredible island in an excellent villa.

Thank you Manuel and Rita.

Lovely House in a Quiet Location

  • 5 of 5

We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at Casa da Manga near Ribeira Brava. We can't speak too highly of the warm welcome and kindness that that we received from owners Rita and Manuel. The house, pool and garden are all as described, and the mangoes from the garden were delicious! Ribeira Brava is a 5 to 10 minute drive away, and Funchal and other coastal towns are easily accessible. Highly recommended.

The views from this villa are lovely - the terraces look over mango and papaya orchards onto banana plantations on the opposite side of the valley, and all the way down to the ocean. The climate of Madeira is very variable, but I think this villa enjoys the best of it, being in the warm, tropical zone. We enjoyed perfect weather throughout our visit. Waking to the peace and fresh air of the countryside in a bedroom with French doors onto the terrace is delightful and it's so lovely to sit in the shade of the terrace that there is no particular need to go out and about every day. There are plenty of restaurants, cafes, wonderful bakery and dramatic scenery nearby, while Funchal is approximately 15 minutes away by car. The villa and its views suited our needs perfectly, and we had an absolutely wonderful holiday here. Manuel and Rita are the kindest, most generous and considerate of hosts, and this is apparent in the comfort, convenience and beauty of the grounds, the villa and it's spotlessly clean and comfortable interior. The kitchen is extremely well equipped and is further supplied with a good provision of basic groceries, making self-catering easy and pleasurable. I use a wheelchair and found the spacious interior and wheelchair access around the house and terraces to be perfect. The property is easily accessed by a well-surfaced road, and there is sufficient parking for several cars. I cannot recommend this property highly enough, and thank Manuel and Rita sincerely for their warmth and kindness to us during our visit.

A winter break Terry K. January 2014

  • 5 of 5

"This is an excellent property, impeccably clean, spacious and very well equipped throughout. We were pleasantly welcomed by the owners who did everything to make our stay enjoyable. The beds were very comfortable and in this very peaceful setting it was easy to relax. The garden area equipped with a covered barbecue and plentiful seating was a great asset, as was the supply of fresh bananas and mangoes.

Nearby Ribeira Brava has supermarkets, banks, shops and restaurants. Also it was a very good place for exploration of the rest of the island.
