|Minimum Stay||7 nights|
Apartment located in Madeira’s west coast at Câmara de Lobos Village. Apartment With Unique Sea Views,with a fantastic 180o panorama view of the sea and Cabo Girão
This apartment is equipped with all facilities you would need for a nice relaxing holiday.
When João Gonçalves Zarco, the first donee of Funchal, sailed into the cove at Câmara de Lobos in 1419, he gave it this name because he found a large number of sea lions (lobos marinhos) there.
On his first trip to Madeira in 1950, Winston Churchill, one of the island’s most famous and distinguished visitors, was enchanted by this picturesque bay. The scenery, scattered with skiffs, nets and dried bonito, is typical of the fishermen’s daily life.
The village of Estreito de Câmara de Lobos belongs to the municipality of Câmara de Lobos. It is the largest area of Madeira wine vineyards. It is also here that the entertaining live grape harvests take place in September as part of the Madeira Wine Festival.
But there are other places in the municipality that are well worth visiting.
A little to the west of Cabo Girão, down by the sea at the bottom of about 300 m of bare, dry rock, is a small fajã (name given to a piece of fertile land formed by a long-ago landslide). Although Fajã dos Padres has only 50 inhabitants, it is an excellent tourist spot offering nautical sports and a local cuisine rich in fish and shellfish. You can get to Fajã dos Padres by sea or by road, though if you go by road you will have to use a panoramic elevator. An unmissable experience!
A blissful couple of weeks in an idyllic spot. The apartment is comfortable - and the wifi is faster than my own home in Britain. The sense of space looking out over the sea is simply amazing – we even saw a whale from the balcony! We shall definitely be back next year.
We had a great stay, and our baby son enjoyed it as much as we did. The view from the balcony is simply amazing, and we found ourselves sitting there with a glass of wine, every single evening.
We really appreciated the huge TV (50 inch screen) too, in that nice roomy living room. It was a bit difficult scrolling through so many cable TV channels, but at least it meant there was always something to watch if we tired of staring at the ocean. The internet connection is free and quite good in the flat too.
One thing we would suggest is that the apartment does a small listing of local shops and restaurants and so on. There’s plenty to see, but it would be helpful to be pointed in the right direction.
Le plus: Très joli village également et appartement très calme avec une très jolie vue sur les lauriers en fleur et sur la mer. Le photos sont fidèles à la réalité mais les lauriers ont poussés et la mer est un peu moins visible que sur la photo !!
l'appartement manque d'équipement en vaisselle (2 bols pour 3) et la literie manque de souplesse. Sensibles du dos: méfiez vous!!
Malgré cela c'est une agréable adresse, à retenir.
