Beatriz Noronha purchased this house in 2010
We had a wonderful stay at Porto Santo and would like to thank the Noronha family for their warm welcome into their property . Beautifully decorated and safe. Very close to all the amenities and most of all very close to the beautiful sandy beach. A restful place away from the stress of London, really what we needed! We are looking forward to return soon with the rest of our family as the house fulfills all our needs. Peaceful, clean, private and most of all very private . Thank you Mr Noronha and family .
Warmest regards ,
Ana and Paulo Moreira
We have just returned from a lovely holiday at Casa do Retiro in Porto Santo and would like to thank you sharing your beautiful house with us. We had excellent weather and spent a lot of time on the beach, as well as exploring the island. We had some good meals in the local restaurants and so I didn't have to cook - a real holiday for me. My mother was very grateful for the chair you provided which we took to the beach and she also enjoyed relaxing at the villa. Your house is absolutely wonderful and is very elegantly furnished - but also feels very welcoming and homely. The surroundings are so peaceful and the neighbours we met were very friendly. In fact everyone we met on the island was friendly and happy to see us. We don't speak Portuguese but this was never a problem. The facilities and equipment at the villa are first class and Claudia looked after us very well - welcoming us on arrival and providing housekeeping for us during the week. We also bought some tasty bread from the man who delivers it to the door. This was our second time of visiting the island - we stayed in a hotel the first time - but your villa and everything that it offers made for a much more enjoyable and relaxing holiday. Our party was 3 generations- a 20 year old, two 50 somethings and an an active 88 year old grandmother. We all loved it and all took advantage of the beautiful beach and warm sea - and for anyone reading this review - yes, it really is as gorgeousl as it looks! Thanks once again to the Noronha family for sharing their home - we hope to be able to return again soon. Sue
It was a pleasure to stay in your house on Porto Santo Island! We love the beach and the way to the beach between the palm trees! We visit many restaurants and beach bars, our favorite restaurant is Pé na Água. It was wonderful to sit there with a cool drink and good food watching the kids playing in the sand...
Porto Santo is a very beautiful, small island with a wonderful, clean beach. There are only a few people on the beach, the water was always clear and blue... We have never seen such a clean beach in the south of Europe!
Vila Baleira is a nice small city where we found all we need: a good supermarket, small bars and good restaurants.
Also the four bikes in your house fit perfectly, so we cycled along the cycle way a lot.
The flight to Hamburg is not very difficult, the Condor flight only takes approximately 4 hours from Funchal to Hamburg - so it is an easy journey for people from Germany as well!
Thanks a lot again to you and your parents, it was a pleasure to met them!
Unsere Familie, bestehend aus 2 Elternteile, einem 7- jährigen Kind und Oma, haben 10 Tage in diesem schönen Haus verbracht. Die Bilder und Beschreibung entsprechen 100% Realitaet: das Haus ist geräumig, gut ausgestattet und liebevoll dekoriert. Es befindet sich in einer geschlossenen Wohngemeinschaft mit direkten Strandzugang. Die Vermieter haben uns u.a. ausreichend Strandtuecher, Sonnenschirme, Liegestuehle und Strandspielzeuge zur Verfügung gestellt. In der Küche gab es viel Geschirr, Besteck, Kochutensilien und alle notwendigen Geräte ( Spülmaschine, Gasherd, Backoffen, großer Kühlschrank mit Gefrierschrank, Mikrowelle, Mixer, Orangensaftpresser, 2 Kaffeemaschinen für die Kapseln, etc.), so gab es keine Probleme mit der Selbstversorgung. Wer jedoch kein Kochen mag, hat auch kein Problem, denn es gibt mehrere Lokale in der Nähe, wo man gut, preisgünstig und frisch essen kann. Wir können Casa do Retiro sowie der Urlaub auf Porto Santo an sich für diejenigen empfehlen, die Individualität und Naturschönheit schätzen und sich in Ruhe, fern von Trubel des Massentourismuses erholen wollen.
Wir danken Vermieter- Familie N. fuer den herzlichen Empfang in Funchal, vor der Abreise nach Porto Santo und deren Gastgebergeschenke (ein Buch über Porto Santo und ein Willkommenskorb im Haus mit Obst, ein paar Kleinigkeiten zum Fruehstueck und Erfrischungsgetränken)
Devo dire che la casa e molto ben arredata e dotata di ogni confort. Manca niente, come a casa propria. La casa e vicina alla spiaggia con accesso diretto. La casa e recintata e i bambini possono giocare in tutta sicurezza. Il centro e un po’ lontano ma comunque si raggiunge in bici abbastanza comodamente, a piedi e un po’ lontano. Non ce traffico e una zona molto tranquilla. La macchina che viene offerta costa 20 € al giorno. La macchina comunque non e adatta a fare lunghi tragitti e soprattutto non e adatta per fare escursioni sull’isola.
Nelle vicinanze purtroppo non ci sono negozi e quindi si deve andare in centro a fare la spesa. Vicino ce un take way abbastanza buono.
Il posto e molto bello e noi con i nostri gemelli ci abbiamo passato 2 settimane stupende in primavera senza il solito affollamento sulle spiagge. Non e un posto molto tranquillo anche la sera, almeno in primavera.
Chi viaggia con bambini piccoli consiglio sia il posto che anche la casa. Vacanze con bambini
Casa muito bem cuidada e decorada. Apetrechada com tudo o que é dito no site, inclusive tiveram a amabilidade de adquirir uma tostadeira pois tinha referido que o meu filho gostava muito de tostas.Muito perto da praia e ideal para crianças e para o relax. Caso tenha a oportunidade, voltarei de certeza absoluta.
Porto Santo is one long beach with a bit of an island attached. Along its nine kilometres of soft white sands, you’ll find just a handful of hotels and restaurants, making Porto Santo one of the last ‘undiscovered’ resorts in Europe.
Part of the Portuguese archipelago that includes the island of Madeira – in the Atlantic Ocean just off the coast of Africa – Porto Santo offers a superb chance to get away from it all. Its volcanic sands have long been held to have curative powers for all manner of aches and ills (carbonate sand rich in magnesium and strontium).
Yet ‘getting away from it all’ doesn't necessarily mean ‘doing nothing at all’. The island boasts a first-rate international golf course; the rugged interior is a fine setting for energetic walks, and there’s horse-riding, diving, game-fishing the diving, sailing, boating, jet skiing, windsurfing, kite surfing, tennis, hiking in the mountains, biking, jeep safaris, paragliding, SPA, thalassotherapy and all manner of other diversions to be found. There’s an intriguing touch of history, too, as Porto Santo's capital, Vila Baleira was once home to none other than Christopher Columbus. And it is easy to get to, either by ferry from Madeira, or by plane through flights from Lisbon and other European capitals to its newly enlarged international airport.
Porto Santo is the smallest habited island of the archipelago. It is a natural paradise evidenced by the extensive beach of golden and thin sand, with about 9 km traveled throughout the south coast, bathed by a sea of calm and crystalline waters with temperatures around 22 degrees in summer and 17 degrees in winter . The island's total area covers approximately 42.17 km2 and its population is estimated at 4,474 habitants.
The climate of Porto Santo is dry and stable, with little variation in temperature between seasons, so it is normal to go to the beach throughout the year.
