We liked exploring Madeira and we had a great stay at the house

We liked that there is not too much tourism in this region so that it is possible to see old origin villages and origin people living and working there.

The kitchen was well appointed and we used the barbecue and also the herbs in the garden for cooking.

We liked the view over the ocean and the atmosphere of the house and garden and will recommend the house to family and friends.

We had a great time on madeira and enjoyed exploring the island. We liked the old house with its atmosphere and the terrace and garden. And also the great view over the ocean.
It was nice to use the well appointed kitchen, the barbecue and also the herbs in the garden for cooking. The house was clean and we didn't miss anything. We will recommend the house to our friends and family. If we will return to Madeira we would choose the house again.

MERCI Sr. Joaquim
Quelles merveilleuses vacances!
Nous avons passé dans votre maison de campagne des jours idylliques. La localisation était parfaite pour le départ à nos randonnées sur la levada et dans la montagne et le plateau de Paul da Serra. A 5 minutes de la mer pour profiter des couchers de soleil quand ce n'était pas depuis la terrasse de votre charmante maison. La maison nous a offert tout le confort et la sérénité dont nous pouvions rêver... La rencontre avec vos voisins fut des plus instructives , histoire de Faja da Ovelha et ils nous ont même offert des fruits et légumes de leur jardin.
Ce furent des vacances inoubliables... nous reviendrons sans nul doute.

A bientôt

THANKS Sr Joaquim

What wonderful holidays!
We spent in your country house idyllics days. The localization was perfect for our hikes on the levada, in the mountain and over Paul da Serra. 5 minutes to reach the sea and admire wonderfull sunsets, when it wasn't from the terrace of your charming house. The house offered us all the comfort and the serenity about which we could dream... The meeting with your neighbors was of the most instructive, Faja da Ovelha's history and they even offered us fruits and vegetables of their garden.
They were unforgettable holidays we will come back undoubtedly.

Fantastic place to spent our holidays.

See you next year!!!

Raw, beautiful, natural scenery!

Faja da Ovelha is raw, beautiful, natural scenery including:

dramatic coastlines, soaring mountain ranges, waterfalls, craggy valleys and beautiful forests and flora including eucalyptus and laurel trees

The south west coast is far less populated than the more populated built up east coast, and during summer a far more pleasant climate than the wetter and colder north.

Contrary to popular perception, Madeira can be rainy and windy with occasional fog during the winter months – there is a reason why the Island is so verdant!

Bird watching: is good with owls, buzzards and other birds of prey easy to observe and rare marine birds including the Cagarra- the Cory Shearwater.

Calheta region has the most forest in Madeira and includes UNESCO protected ancient Laurisilva forest.

Also, Faja da Ovelha is a base for visiting the nature and official walks including:

-Rabacal including ‘25 Fontes’ and ‘Risco’ waterfalls

-Paul da Serra

-Levada Nova

Calheta Town is approximately 15 minutes drive away with FREE white sand beaches, large supermarket open until 10pm, marina with fishing and whale dolphin watching boats and restaurants, bars and shops, plus the international award winning MUDAS ART Centre with permanent and temporary exhibitions and performances and one of the last remaining RUM FACTORIES with museum ENGENHOS DA CALHETA.

In the village of PRAZERES there are 5 or 6 restaurants some rated as excellent by Tripadviser including the restaurant of the 4 star Hotel Jardim Atlantico and a FREE cultural art centre Quinta Pedagogica including a small zoo, 2 art galleries and tea and cider houses.

Views: breathtaking views of the south west coast sunsets..Madeira’s hottest and sunniest south west coast, mountains and the Atlantic Ocean of course!
