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 !

Wunderschönes Haus mit Garten

  • 5 of 5

Das Haus liegt am Rande des Dorfes direkt neben Bananenplantagen und vor den Steilklippen. Ein romantischer Fußweg führt in 4 Gehminuten vom öffentlichen Parkplatz zum Haus. Das Haus selbst ist super ausgestattet, von Bügeleisen und Waschmaschine bis zum Toaster und Mixer. Im großen Wohnzimmer lässt es sich wunderbar relaxen. Vom großen Balkon aus kann man den Blick über das Dorf und das Meer genießen. Im Garten gibt es Passionsfrüchte zu naschen und abends vielleicht ein Lagerfeuer. Die Unterkunft hat uns sehr gut gefallen und wir haben den Aufenthalt dort sehr genossen. Für Urlauber, die die Ruhe eines kleinen Dorfes lieben, ist das der perfekte Ort zum Entspannen.

  • 5 of 5

"Prima woning, ruim, netjes, uitstekend gefaciliteerd. Geweldig panoramisch uitzicht op zee. Plezierige communicatie met eigenaar die graag zeker weet of je alles in orde vindt. Zeer ruim balkon plus tuin, met overdekt gedeelte tegen de zon. Eigenaar woont boven, maar geeft geen overlast. Dorp is autovrij, het is ''s nachts muisstil, overdag geen verkeersgeluiden. Voor behoorlijke supermarkt moet je naar Calheta. Dorpje ligt tegen helling. Maakt redelijk welvarende indruk, mooi aangelegde (trap) steegjes. Je moet wel even klimmen voordat je voor de voordeur staat. Maar dan heb je ook wat.....

  • 4 of 5

"Maison, emplacement, équipement,vue, tout est parfait pour un séjour très agréable. Seul bémol, il faut se rendre à pied depuis le seul parking du village à la maison. ça monte un peu et avec les valises ce n''est pas évident. Mais le problème est très aggravé si on arrive de nuit, parce que les explications et plans fournis par Fréderico sont vraiment très insuffisants!!! Résultat=grosse galère à l''arrivée de nuit et sous la pluie! Conclusion: insister pour bien se faire préciser les modes d''accès et ne pas hésiter à contacter le propriétaire avant de partir (si il est joignable...)"

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.
