Beautiful house

The house and gardens were very well maintained. The house had beautiful views with fantastic sunsets.

Casa da Rainha, near Calheta. 15/12/15 to 5/1/16

  • 4 of 5

A nice, clean, house with a good outlook and good sun exposure, in a convenient location for exploring the beautiful exotic island of Madeira. I think it is about 600 metres above sea-level. The owners are very friendly and speak English and other languages. It is equipped with all one might ever want, but it is marred a little by a noisy thin floor overhead, creaky beds and a hot-water system that needs upgrading. There is only one indoor toilet/shower-room (we did not use the outdoor one, but it might be useful in the summer). It overlooks the main road nearby and is adjacent to a fairly busy local road. There is a supermarket not far away, a car is essential.

I recommend highly this property for people who prefer the country to the city.

Owner's Response: Thank you very much for your kind review. We would only like to clarify that the wooden floor is a particularity of the traditional houses in Madeira and even though this house was completely refurbished, we kept its originality as much as possible. We do hope to have you back again in our property.Madeira has always new beauties to discover!

Wunderschöner Blick aus Meer

  • 4 of 5

Wir hatten tolle zwei Wochen auf Madeira und die "Casa da Rainha" ist wunderschön: Der weitläufige Außenbereich besticht durch einen tollen Garten und den fantastischen Blick aufs Meer, man kann großartige Sonnenuntergänge sehen. Wohn- und Esszimmer sind recht gemütlich (mit Kamin), mir haben das Schlafzimmer und Badezimmer oben auch sehr gut gefallen. Es war alles sehr sauber und wir haben uns wohl gefühlt. Etwas irritiert hat uns allerdings die Nähe zu einer vielbefahrenen Straße. Da jedoch der Schlaf davon nicht gestört war und man sich mit der Zeit dran gewöhnt hat, geben wir dennoch vier Sterne. Allerdings waren wir tagsüber meist unterwegs - um den westlichen Teil der Insel zu erkunden und um hier Wanderungen zu machen, ist Calheta ein super Ausgangspunkt! Empfehlenswert ist auch das Whale Watching - das Boot startet im Hafen von Calheta.

Belle maison

  • 4 of 5

La casa da Raihna se situe à cinq minutes ( en voiture, qui est absolument indispensable ) de la plage de calheta et de la plage, plus sauvage, de Jardim do Mar. La maison est très coquette, très bien équipée, joliment meublée. La terrasse est spacieuse, fleurie et avec une superbe vue sur l'océan, sans oublié un grand barbecue. Nous avons passé un séjour très agréable et tranquille. Madame Vanda, la propriétaire, est très soucieuse d'apporter une solution au moindre problème que vous pourriez rencontrer.

Je recommande vivement cette maison.

Ein Haus mit gemütlicher Atmosphäre und schönem Außenbereich

  • 5 of 5

Wir haben uns als Gast in diesem sehr schönen, rundum liebevoll, mit allem Notwendigen eingerichteten Haus, in guter Lage, bestens aufgehoben gefühlt!

Einzig in der Küche und im Bad wünschten wir uns helleres Licht.
