About Bruno Fontes

Hey there!

My name is Bruno Fontes, I'm originally from Madeira and I've been working here as a professional Mountain Guide for almost 14 years of my life and I'll never get tired of it!

Whatever you're thinking to do here while staying with us I can come and sit in the sun with you with a nice glass of wine and I can certainly explain and show you some of the best hidden places (away from the crowds) for you to discover here in Madeira.

If you like hiking/trekking then you have another good reason to stay in our house. Just about 10min away from here we've some of the best walks in Madeira like "Rabaçal - 25 Fountains" "Lakes of Madeira", "The Wind Lagoon", "Fanal", "Pico Ruivo do Paùl - Estanquinhos", "Bica da Cana" and many more...

Doing the job that I do I feel like living the dream of my life and I'll be here to share my passion, culture and traditions with you and so don't hesitate in booking our house before its too late!

Bruno Fontes purchased this cottage in 2015

Why Bruno Fontes chose Estrela da Calheta

Since the day I saw this house for the first time I had an imidiat vision of the things that I could have done with this place in my mind and this is the final result of that dream...

What makes this cottage unique

This house can be entirely yours for as long as you want and you can use everything in this house like if it was your own home away from home.

If you like landscapes and green areas then this is what you can expect to see any time of the day or you can sit in the garden reading your book and hearing the sound of the water like if you were in a Zen Garden...

I really like this house any time of the day, but I've to confess that I like it even more after it gets dark with all the lights, the swimming pool and the garden and it can be all yours for you to explore!

Fantastic quiet villa with the most beautiful garden surroundings, you'll never want to leave!

  • 5 of 5

Our family of five, which includes three children spent two lovely weeks during August at this villa. The garden and pool area has various sitting areas to enjoy soaking up the sun all designed and inspired by Bruno and the design means you get sun throughout the day. The pool was lovely, and the hot tub at the top of the waterfall was an added surprise which the children just loved.

The pictures and descriptions are all as described, and to be fair even better when you actually see it for real! The night times are just as nice due to the design of the garden area with the lighting and various features, making it a relaxing place to end the day with a lovely glass of wine.

There is an outdoor kitchen/BBQ area with a lovely big table to sit and take in the views and atmosphere which we did every day which made us really feel like we were on our holidays.

Inside the villa is just as nice, there is everything you would need for your break and again the attention to detail was great.

Bruno and his family are very welcoming and his knowledge of the island is amazing, he was only too happy to recommend places to visit, we even tried a prickly pear!

You will need a car as the villa is set in the mountains, but the location is great. The closest shop is a few minutes drive away with the beach of Calheta only five minutes drive away. There is lots to explore on the island and places to see and this was a great place to stay to do this. We will return to this villa on our next trip to Madeira and will be recommending this to our family and friends.

Thank you to Bruno and his family, we have taken away some lovely memories.

Perfect place to enjoy yourself

  • 5 of 5

It was a big pleasure for us to be one of the first guests of this awesome house. It is made with so much love and details and has everything you need (and much more!!!). We especially loved the garden with all the nice flowers and herbs (which makes your food even better) and all the different places to relax and enjoy yourself. Every day we explored something new in the house for example special light effects or the jacuzzi. It's all very luxirous but still cosy (and very clean of course). The house also has a very good location. On the one side is the city center of Calheta with the sandy beach and all the shopping staff near by. And on the other side you are quickly in the mountains where you can do very nice walks. If you need any help or just want to talk to local you can contact Bruno and Maria at any time. We like to say again thank you so much for this unforgetable stay. We will come back - that's for sure. Cheers Arne and Nicole :)

Absolutely amazing, forever in our memories!!!

  • 5 of 5

We recently got married and we started looking for a place to stay in Madeira for our honeymoon when we came across to the "Cottage Fontes". Since we have found this beautiful house we booked it immediately and what an amazing surprise we got when we got here!! The descriptions are exactly what it says and even much more! We only been here for a few days and everyday we discovered different things in this beautiful house! It's very close from the centre, with the bars around the sandy beach, the marina, the supermarket and the restaurants. Our host Bruno came here talking with us in the first evening and he did make everything easier for us! With his knowledge about Madeira we even had time to go for a walk and we still dream about it all. We certainly hope to be back to Madeira and definitely to this house again soon and we strongly recommend this place to anyone who likes a peaceful place with great views, a very nice garden with flowers everywhere and plenty of sunshine all day long. One of the best moments we had in the house was definitely at night time with all the lights on, the fairy-lights in the gazebo and the sound of the waterfalls in the pond and in the swimming pool, so harmonious and peaceful. Thank you so much again Bruno & Maria for making our honeymoon a dream come true and we look forward to see you again soon!!

Leuk en aangenaam huisje

  • 4 of 5

Een proper huis met een aangename aankleding. Goed van alles voorzien: 2 slaapkamers elk met hun badkamer. Goed voorziene keuken. Design binnen is modern maar gezellig aangekleed. Buiten mag het er ook wezen: tuin is klein maar gezellig ingericht met buitenkeukentje, zithoek en zwembad. Voor ons in april was zwembad nog te koud maar de kinderen vonden het toch fijn in de tuin rond te crossen.

Over Bruno: fantastische kerel en als gids kent hij ook Madeira als geen ander.

If you like hiking/trekking then you have another good reason to stay in our house!

In our house you will also find a board with the map from Madeira and some of the best walking/hiking tours that (you can do on your own and without a guide) in completely full detail, this will certainly save you a lot of time!

Now if you desire something with more adrenaline you can also do mountain biking (downhill), paragliding, watch the dolphins on a boat or if you prefer a boat trip or a jet sky, off-track 4x4, cannoning, big game fishing and etc... I can organise any of those events for you and all you have to do is just let me know and job done!
