Relaxing and stunning views of the mountains and ocean.

  • 4 of 5

We stayed for a few days in the small house at the start of our vacation. Great garden and sun deck. Was very hot at night even with the air conditioning unit on. Great for 2 people looking for a quiet break. Then we moved to the bigger apartment just next door. Lovely and roomy for 2 or 4 people. Well equipped - couldn't get the sound to work on the TV though! I could never tire of the view from the terrace. You are right up at the back of the village so not a place to stay if you have trouble walking, but great exercise up and down from apartment to village. Lovely quiet village but you need a car to get around the island and be prepared for very winding narrow roads. Sandy beach nearby at Calheta was great but no beach in Jardim Do Mar. Overall had a fab stay and would highly recommend the property.

Great ! We loved it !!!

  • 4 of 5

We spent a week in the Casa do Moinho (the bigger home) and really enjoyed our stay. Sitting on the porch and having a beer or a barbecue on the terrace with a fantastic view over the sea, could´nt be any more relaxing ! The view over the ocean really is fantastic !: )

The home is well-equipped with all the usual kitchen-utilities one needs for regular cooking. It is designed to host 4 persons in 2 bedrooms but the amount of plates and glasses is not sufficient for more than 2 guests at a time.

Another minor downturn was the quality of the beds. Sleeping in the king-size bed made our backs hurt after the second night, so we moved into the other bedroom with two single beds, which were more comfortable, though not perfect either. For one week it was quite ok.

The upper level seems to be no more than a small attic. If somebody was living up there, I couldn´t image how. At least we didn´t notice anybody.

If you want to spend your time lying in the sun, you might want to check with the office before you arrive, to make sure there are sunbeds. We used the thick matress and covers as a large sunbed, that worked very well and was comfortable.

Parking in the town centre is no problem at all - at least at that time of the year when it´s really quiet everywhere on the island.

The nearest bigger supermarket is "Pingo Doce" at the harbour in Calheta, about 6 km away from Jardim Do Mar. It´s open every day of the week from 8 to 22h.

JDM itself has a small mini-market where you can get the most important things a little more expensive.. The nearest (affordable) gas station we know of is in Ribera Brava right at the turn-around about 12km away. The next ATM is 2,5 km away in Paul do Mar; just make a left at the mainroad and drive through the tunnel.

Now a few tips for travelling:


1. Natural Beach in Ribeira Brava: fine, black sand with bigger gravel, great view and free parking

2. Calheta: artifical, white sand, no gravel, but not very clean either: Enclosed in concrete quaywalls to hold off the waves, paid parking (about 1 €/h)

3. Seixal (at the north coast): fine. black sand, no gravel at all, very scenic beach, but weather can be quite changeable


Take the hiking trail that starts right next to the house up to Prazeres and take the way back to the town of Paul Do Mar, it´s quite exhausting but worth the trip !

Stilvolle Ferienwohnung in einem der schönsten Orte der Insel

  • 5 of 5

Schöne geräumige Ferienwohnung mit einer Panoramaaussicht auf den Atlantik und in den Bananengarten. Komfortabel eingerichtet, gut ausgestattet und schön gelegen. Die Schlüsselübergabe funktionierte trotz Sprachbarrieren problemlos. Teresa die Haushälterin (Verwalterin) hat sich bestens um alles gekümmert und uns alles sehr charmant erklärt. Der Ort Jarmin do Mare ist sehr beschaulich und nicht so überlaufen. Toller Urlaub auf einer schönen Insel!

Wir haben zwei fantastische Woche in dieser wunderschönen Ferienwohnung verbracht. Das Haus liegt idyllisch und ruhig am Rande des schönen autofreien Dorfes inmitten von Bananen und Wein. Die Terrasse wurde ja schon vielfach in den Bewertungen gelobt, dem schließen wir uns an. Der Blick auf das Meer und die Sonnenuntergänge ließen den Alltag vergessen.

Die Schlüsselübergabe bei der Ankunft hat perfekt geklappt, wir trafen uns vor Joe's Bar und gingen gemeinsam den kleinen Weg zum Haus hoch. Teresa erklärte uns alles ausführlich und versorgte uns zwischendurch sogar mit frischer Bettwäsche. Susana war jederzeit per Mail erreichbar und antwortete bei Fragen sehr zeitnah.

Die Wohnung ist sehr großzügig geschnitten, schön eingerichtet und sehr sauber. Der Weber-Grill auf der Terrasse sorgte des Öfteren für frisch gegrillten Fisch zum Abendbrot.

Auch im Dorf gibt es Möglichkeiten, lecker essen zu gehen. Wir waren in Joe's Bar (mit quakenden Fröschen) und im Hotel am Dorfplatz mit toller Terrasse direkt am Meer.

In einem kleinen Dorfladen gibt es Brötchen, Eier, Milch, etc. Der nächste Supermarkt ist wenige Kilometer entfernt in Calheta.

Das tolle Wandergebiet Rabacal ist mit dem Auto in 20 Minuten zu erreichen.

Wir haben es sehr genossen, nicht direkt bei Funchal sondern ca. 45 Minuten entfernt abseits von den Touristenströmen zu wohnen. Und da die Insel nicht sehr groß ist, ist auch ein Ausflug in den Norden- oder Westen kein Problem.

Alles in allem: 100% Weiterempfehlung!

Nearest Airport
60 Kilometres
Aeroporto Internacional Cristiano Ronaldo
Car: recommended

The village is 30 minutes from Funchal the main city.So it helps to have a car if you are interested in moving around Madeira and seeing a bit more its beauty and diversity.There many things to see and activities in different parts of the island.
