Small but every thing is there

  • 5 of 5

I came for a walking holiday and was not disappointed. In the little house a separate room with double bed with a memory foam mattress and a sofa chair and a double wardrobe. Laminate on the floor. And a electric heater. That was very handy as the first few days were quit cold. In the small living room/kitchen a double sofa bed, small table and chairs and a barstool at the breakfast bar. And a very nice wood burning stove with a free supply of firewood. In the kitchen is everything you need. Proper knifes, sieve, hand juicer. Good pots and pans, although a new big frying pan would be good as it is scratched a bit. The shower room is tiny but good enough. Lots of storage space. And a tv for the evening with a very good supply of channels in various languages and sport channels. Outside space is private with a barbecue and washing lines. Table and chairs and foldable sunbed. In storage space also pegs and foldable washing rack. Levada is around the corner. Small supermarket 5 min drive away. Bigger one at Calheta beach. All in all the perfect holiday house. Joao is the perfect host. Very recommended.

Wer Ruhe sucht, findet sie hier!

  • 5 of 5

Das Häuschen liegt abseits vom Tourismus ganz ruhig am Ortsrand. João Vargas hat es ganz schön gerichtet, mit allem, was man braucht. Auch die Terrasse bietet ausreichend Platz, vor allem in der Hängematte lassen sich gemütliche Stunden verbringen.

Zwei der Restaurants in Prazeres sind gut zu Fuß erreichbar, auch Wanderungen kann man von hier aus unternehmen. Aber ein Mietwagen ist unbedingt von Vorteil.

Wir haben uns bei João wohl gefühlt!

location parfaite pour 2 personnes

  • 4 of 5

Nous avons passés un très bon séjour à Prazere,la location est parfaite et d'un très bon rapport qualité prix;les propriétaires sont très sympathiques et nous avons été très bien accueilli.La maisonnette est mignonne,le coin terrasse super pour se reposer au calme.A part quelques aboiements de chiens c'est vraiment très calme à Prazere;une supérette pour faire les courses se trouve à proximité,et nous sommes allés au restaurant à pied! D'ailleurs nous vous conseillons le restaurant rural très bon accueil une personne parle le français plats délicieux.

A part cela il faut savoir qu'en avril il ne fait pas encore très chaud à Madère,surtout que Prazere est en altitude,le matin il fait frais et nous n'avons pu déjeuner dehors que 3 fois en 8 jours. (Séjour du 10 au 19 avril) Pour se rendre à Funchal comptez presque une heure et pour aller se garer à la pointe St Lourenco (superbe balade) comptez 1h10 environs. L'ile est petite mais il faut quand même du temps pour aller d'un point à un autre même avec les tunnels.

Ne vous fiez pas trop à la météo du matin,le temps change très vite,et il est différent d'un coté à l'autre de l'ile.Pas de baignade trop possible en cette période de l'année,je n'ai pas enfilé mon maillot de bain! Part contre superbes balades dans les levadas,en montagnes,nature luxuriante,fleurs magnifiques (mais c'était encore un peu tôt) nourriture délicieuse et restaurants pas chers,bref un super séjour à Madère!

Owner's Response: Sylvie et Luc étaient très gentils, amicaux et communicatifs. Nous avons aimé leur parler. Le bois est une île qui peut être plusieurs stations le même jour. Vraiment si vous voulez beaucoup de chaleur, le moment idéal pour réserver ce sera en été. Nous avons vraiment les revoir! Je vous remercie pour choisir ma maison Vargas

Klein aber gemütlich!

  • 4 of 5

Nach der herzlichen Begrüssung des Vermieters, samt einer Schale mit heimischem Obst, verbrachten wir fünf erholsame Tage in diesem Häuschen in Prazeres.

Die Unterkunft ist klein, aber das wussten und sahen wir ja im Voraus.

Die Ausstattung ist einfach, für einen kürzeren Aufenthalt aber ausreichend.

Der Kamin verbreitet eine warme Gemütlichkeit, die Terrasse lädt zum Verweilen an der frischen Luft ein.

Sehr praktisch wären allerdings ein paar mehr Küchenutensilien wie z. B. Töpfe und Pfannen, ein etwas bequemeres Sofa und eine bessere Beleuchtung für den Küchen- und Wohnbereich.

Wir haben uns trotzdem wohl gefühlt!

absolut empfehlenswerte, perfekte traumhafe FeWo

  • 5 of 5

Für 2 Personen absolut empfehlenswert! Es ist wirklich ALLES vorhanden, was man benötigt. Die Küche ist perfekt ausgestattet! Viele Töpfe, Pfannen, Kochlöffel, ...; Herdplatte, extra Kontaktgrill, Espresso-Maschine, Kaffeemaschine und eine Waschmaschine!! Sogar das notwendigste wie Spülmittel, Spülschwamm, Putzmittel, sogar Salz, Pfeffer, Essig und Öl, Kaffeepulver, Filtertüten, Klopapier, Waschpulver, Weichspüler waren da. Das Bad ist ausgestattet mit 2 großen Duschtücher, 2 normale Handtücher, 1 Gästetuch, 1 Duschvorleger. Im Schlafzimmer: Bettbezüge, 4 unterschiedl. Kopfkissen, unterschiedl. Decken. Ich hatte noch nie so eine gut ausgestattete FeWo! Die sehr netten, jungen Vermieter wohnen gleich dahinter, wenn etwas sein sollte (bei uns war nichts), kann man einfach klingeln.

Die Wohnung ist klein, genügt aber vollauf. Sie liegt abseits der Tourigegend, unglaublich ruhig und weit oben. auf die Verbindungsstraße zum Hochplatteau sind es nur wenige Meter und man ist in ca. 15 min. auf dem Plateau im Wandergebiet. Gleich unterhalb der Wohnung (ca. 100m) verläuft eine Levada, die man nach links und rechts je 2-3 Std. laufen kann und auch in verschied. Wanderführern (Rother, Kompass) allein und in Kombi mit anderen Touren angegeben wird.

Alles in allem: die perfekte FeWo für Wanderfreunde und solche, die es gemütlich und schön ruhig mögen. Wir würden sofort wieder hinfahren und haben es bereut, nur eine Woche gebucht zu haben. Absolut empfehlenswert!!!

The village of Prazeres is nearby where you can find local cafes and restaurants, a supermarket, and medical center. Only 5 minutres away, the large roundabout which gives access to the system via express highway, there is a supermarket, a cafe / bakery with ATM, plus a coffee at the gas station and another couple of restaurants. The nearest pharmacy is in the sleepy village of Calheta, only 10 minutes by car. Only 10 minute drive will take you to the resort town of Calheta nearby Villa. With its golden beaches man-made, it is popular with tourists and locals alike. There is a beautiful marina and a good choice of bars and restaurants, a handful of small shops, a good brand supermarket, a bank and chemist. Calheta is famous for producing the best white rum "Firewater", a special ingredient of the typical Madeiran drink "Poncha". If you are interested in knowing how the white rum is made, we recommend a tour of "Engenho da Calheta" the rum distillery where you can wander around and sample the produce. Arts Centre House of seedlings is a new center located on the edge of a cliff overlooking the sea and was built to accommodate superb art exhibitions, musical performances and other events. Only 20 minutes drive east is Ribeira Brava, the largest city before Funchal, and offers a rocky beach facilities and access to the sea, and a large supermarket and more shops, cafes and restaurants. The capital, Funchal, is an easy 50-minute drive from the motorway. The airport is easy and 60 minutes.
