Why Karen chose Madeira

I bought this piece of land with two old stone buildings that had been abandoned for twenty years, because of the rural location and lovely sea views.

The beauty of the island, the climate and the friendliness and generosity of the Madeiran people make this a perfect destination.

Excellent location for our walking holiday

  • 5 of 5

The house description proved to be 100% accurate and it was an ideal base for our walks which covered the central and the south west coastal areas.

A large number of guide books (walking and general) and maps were provided at the house which would be useful if you haven't brought your own and need some ideas. Would particularly recommend those published by Discovery Walking Guides and the house owner also recommended their guides and there are copies in the house.

Didn't use the terrace very much dues to the shorter days and that we were out walking every day but looks like it would be a very pleasant and sheltered sun trap.

All communications with the owner were very friendly and our queries answered quickly.

Would certainly recommend the house (and Madeira!) to friends and family.

Lovely house in a great location.

  • 5 of 5

A clean, spacious, well equipped house in a pretty village. There was also plenty of outdoor space which isn't apparent from the photos. Good communication & directions from the owner. The local shop / bar was very quirky & just a few minutes walk. A levada can also be accessed in a few minutes walk. We found the local supermarket well stocked & their coffee & custard tarts were delicious ! The nearby restaurant on the road to Rabacal was fantastic. Whale & dolphin watching in Calheta is a must although we preferred the beach at Ponta do Sol. The house is ideal for those who prefer to be away from the tourist resorts but is within easy reach of all parts of the island.

Owner's Response: Thank you for the review. I believe the restaurant you mention is Requinte do Rochao. Excellent traditional Madeiran cooking.

Saubere, neue und gut gelegene Unterkunft

  • 5 of 5

Ende Januar waren wir Gäste in diesem Hause. Zum Wandern war das eine gute Lage. Wir waren mit der Unterkunft und der Betreuung sehr zufrieden. Als Tipp ist darauf hinzuweisen, dass es um diese Jahreszeit am Abend etwas kühl wird (Benutzung einer E-Heizung ist anzuraten).

Für "deutsche Fernseher" ist zu empfehlen, deutschsprachige Sender einstellen zu lassen.

Klein und idyllisch fein!

  • 5 of 5

Wir haben uns in diesem kleinen Ferienhäuschen mit seinen wunderschönen Steinmauern sofort wohlgefühlt. Die offene Wohnküche mit Sofa und kleinem Holzofen ist sehr gemütlich. Bad mit Dusche / Waschmaschine und Schlafzimmer liegen im Untergeschoss des Hauses, jedoch mit Türen auf die herrliche Terasse mit angelegtem Garten und Sonnenliegen. Der Blick aus allen Fenstern führt zum Meer. Obgleich das Ferienhaus direkt an einer Straße liegt, ist es dennoch sehr ruhig und idyllisch - Natur pur. Ganz prima: Der gut sortierte Supermarkt in unmittelbarer Nähe, geöffnet an allen Tagen (auch sonntags) bis 22.00 Uhr mit angeschlossenem Cafe und kleiner Ausblickterasse. - Wenn wir wieder zum Wandern nach Madeira kommen, werden wir erneut in diesem herrlichem Ferienhäuschen wohnen.

Owner's Response: Thank you for the lovely review. I am pleased you enjoyed your stay. It is true that the road is not busy as it only goes to the small village of Florencas above us.

Super schönes Steinhaus!!!

  • 5 of 5

Wir haben bei unserer Premiere auf Madeira uns kurzfristig für dieses nette und glorreiche Häuschen entschieden!!

Entsprach zu 100% der Beschreibung des Objekts, bzw. eigentlich wurden wir persönlich noch getoppt!!

Vorab sehr freundliche Betreuung von Karen, wurden wir von Hilda und Toni herzlichst empfangen. Hat echt Spaß gemacht mit den beiden, kleine Wünsche wurden postwendend erfüllt!

Das Haus an sich bietet in seinem absolut neuwertig renovierten Zustand, ausreichend Platz für 2, und ließ ohne große Schnörkel keine Wünsche offen .

Auch die schwach befahrene Bergstraße vor der Tür störte keineswegs, und sogar ein lokaler Landwirt hielt einfach an, und schenkte uns Bananen!!

Eine rundherum schöne und entspannte Zeit haben wir dort verbracht, und sagen einfach nur Danke Schön!!!! Gerne Wieder!!!!

Frank & Monja
