We have had a lovely holiday here and enjoyed sitting on the garden terrace. Gilberto & Anna's help was much appreciated. The local Sa supermarket, which Gilberto directed us to, had everything we needed.
We found a reasonable selection of restaurants within walking distance, along the lavada, to the bottom of the hill and across the road. The chalet we liked, a villa cafe and around the corner The Mar Brando. The Dona Amelia and Casa Vela were also very good but a bit further down the hill. There are others in the same area which we did not try. A night out in the old town is also easy as the buses run until late.
We enjoyed our trip to watch the football at the stadium in the mountains, Nacional vs FC Porto.
There is a walkway from Praia Formosa to Camara de Lobos, about two and a half kilometres. We caught the bus to get us close to the beach , line 01, 02, 43 and 04 all take you within reasonable distance.
The house is clean and well-equipped, near the city center. It's comfortable for six people. The caretaker of the house is very friendly and helpful. When we arrived, he took us to the supermarket and showed the city.
I strongly recommend this property.
P.s. Thanks GIlberto :)
A casa tem tudo o que necessitamos no dia a dia e estava bem localizada.
A pessoa que nos recebeu (Gilberto) era bastante simpático e prestável e deu-nos várias dicas sobre a ilha.
Recomendamos esta casa a qualquer pessoa.
We (me, my husband and 4 year old son) spendid about one month in this beautifull house. Location was good. It was between centrum, harbour and Lido (turist area and the best restaurant ILHA). We walked usually to one of these places and came back with Taxi, which payed about 6-7e. Cleaning included in the price and it was very good. Even chocolate waited uss on our pillows just like in hotells. House had all house appliance what we needed and we made food in house many times. Internet and Tv worked excellent. House keeper was marvellous. He helped uss in everything and we could always call him if we had something to ask. He was friendly, helpful and polite. And the neigbours was in the same way too. We had a wonderfull holiday in this house and in Madeira. We could recommend this to everybody. Go and have the best holiday!
quite near rstaurants and City of Funchal, very helpful and friendly housekeeper, house very clean and well-maintained
We stayed at this house in March 2011 & would highly recommend it. Much attention & care has gone into the house which is very well equipped & furnished & exactly as described. Superb kitchen with all facilities.Spacious patio under cover with BBQ. Roomy bedrooms & everything spotlessly clean. Electric heater for chilly evenings.
NB There is a flight of steps to access the house.
House is in a residential district & ideally situated for the town.Much closer than all hotels in the Lido area.House is nearer to the centre of Funchal than we anticipated- an easy stroll to the Promenade in 10 mins via a well lit walkway downhill.Two mins walk to the bus stop- direct to town or elsewhere. 20 mins stroll to the Old Town with great restaurants.Busy main road close by house but no traffic noise at night & we were out during the day. Family owners very helpful & friendly.Provided taxi service from airport.Took us supermarket shopping,provided tourist info & welcome pack of fruit & wine.Cost of food on the whole was cheaper than UK & no UK-style takeaways !
We had a wonderful holiday & were very impressed with Madeira,its food & its people who were very friendly.(English widely spoken). We explored Funchal,took 2 day-long coach trips (with Strawberry World,recommended), bought 5-day bus tickets for 12 euros which enabled us to go anywhere on local buses as often as we wanted. Lovely scenery. Did a levada walk,went on the cable car and watched the amazing Carnival procession on Sat night.
Would not hesitate to go to Madeira again and would recommend the house to anyone.
Wir haben eine schöne Woche in diesem sauberen und gut eingerichteten Haus verbracht.
Der Hausverwalter Gilberto war für uns eine große Hilfe. Er holte uns in Funchal ab, wenn wir uns an unserem ersten Tag mit dem Mietauto verfahren haben und fuhr mit uns ins Einkaufszentrum Dolce Vita, wo wir alles Notwendige in guter Qualität kaufen konnten.
Wer ein Auto mieten möchte, soll unbedingt an ein Navigationsgerät denken.
Das Haus und die Inneneinrichtung entspricht voll der Beschreibung hier.
Es gibt allerdings zwei Umstände, die evtl empfindliche Menschen stören könnten: das Haus befindet sich nahe einer Schnellstraße und in der Nachbarschaft unterhalten sich Hunde...:-) Wenn die Fenster geschlossen sind, hört man die Geräusche von Außen kaum, weil sie gut isoliert sind.
Für die Außengeräusche kann der Vermieter nichts, deshalb vergebe ich fünf Sterne.
Die Kommunikation mit dem Vermieter klappte reibungslos.
Vielen Dank Bruno,
vielen Dank Gilberto.
