Prazeres: a walker's paradise : Prazeres is a walker's paradise with THE LEVADA NOVA the longest levada walk in Madeira passing close to the village centre - well sign-posted. This levada walk takes walkers into the UNESCO protected ancient Laurisilva forest or along the SUNNIEST & HOTTEST COAST IN MADEIRA. Also, about a kilometre away from the Villa is the PR19 CAMINHO REAL DO PAUL DO MAR walk.. down to the beautiful historic village of Paul do Mar - 400 metres below.

Paul do Mar was one of the venues for the WORLD SURFING CHAMPIONSHIPS in 2001. The Paul do Mar walks takes about an hour and starts outside the award-winning eco hotel with spa and restaurant.

Spa centre & hire car or not?: The award-winning eco hotel with spa and restaurant is about a kilometre from Casa Rocha.

HIRE CAR OR NOT? We recommend a hire car and to collect it when you arrive at the airport. But, some of our clients do not want a hire-car for the whole holiday or to drive. One solution is we can pick 3 people up at the airport and return clients to the airport for 45 Euros each journey.

Walkers paradise!

  • 5 of 5
  • Submitted: Jun 5, 2013
  • Stayed: May 2013
We wished we could have stayed longer.!We could only stay 5 nights but fell in love with this rural paradise. It was so easy to reach the levada nova walk and walk along the coast and into the forest. Also, we made the walk down to the fishing village Paul but beware you need a stick as its very steep! The Villa was very clean and we cooked outside several times. There was plenty fire wood included! There are plenty of eating places in the village although in different streets, The new garage not far away was useful too as it has a convenience shop open until late. Great check in with much information from Paul and Iva Strongly recommended! We hope that we can return soon!

Dear Jane R
thanks for a '5 star', 'excellent' review and strongly recommending Casa da Rocha Country Villa. Your review confirms that the Villa is:

-well located for an Activity/Nature Holiday close to Levada Nova the longest levada walk on the island and the PR19 down to Paul do Mar fishing village
-has 2 kitchens! One indoors and the outdoor barbecue with "plenty of fire wood" and is
-very clean!

and that there are plenty of eating places in the village when you want to eat out.

Yes, the new BP garage with a small shop not far away open until late is convenient.

We are very happy that you valued our check service with guidance and advice backed up by written information and maps.

You wrote that "We hope that we can return soon" and we hope that you will return soon and stay at the Villa again. Keep in touch with what is happening in Madeira by following our blog!

Superb villa with a view of the ocean

  • 5 of 5
  • Submitted: Sep 16, 2012
  • Stayed: Aug 2012
Casa da Rocha a is clean, spacious and fully equipped villa for all your holiday needs. Paul and Iva gave us a very warm welcome when we arrived and were always on hand if we had any queries. The garden and pool area received the sun all day and the pool was spotlessly clean. Several levadas and restaurants are within easy walking distance so you don't have to use your car every day. We would recommend Olhar do Campo and Chicco Restaurants as we found the staff there to be very friendly, spoke english and the food was excellent. The villa is only a few minutes drive from the main road which enables quick easy access to see the different sights around the island. The entrance to the villa proved to be a challenge iniitally as it was on a hill and through a narrow gateway, but after a few days we managed to master this. We have no hesitation in recommending Casa da Rocha and should we decide to visit Madeira again in the future we will certainly contact Paul and Iva. Thank you to both of them for making our holiday in Madeira such a memorable one.
Owner's Response: Dear Nicholls Family
thanks for a 5 star review and recommending Casa da Rocha Country Villa to other travellers. Your review confirms that the Villa is “clean, spacious and fully equipped villa for all...holiday needs.” Also, your review confirms that the pool was sunny and more importantly clean and that levada walks such as Levada Nova and the PR19 down to Paul do Mar fishing village are within easy walking distance as are several restaurants.

We are happy that the location gave you “quick easy access to see the different sights around the island...” and you mastered the driveway and Villa gate after a few days.

Finally, we are happy too that you valued our service before check in, at check in and during your stay and will contact us again.

Thanks for staying at Casa da Rocha. We look forward to your return to Madeira.

Best wishes

Paul & Iva

We loved this villa! Clean, spacious and cosy too on the cooler evenings! The children 10 and 13 had plenty of room to spread themselves out, which they did!!!! Great pool with a super view. We hired a car to completely explore the island but there are bars, restaurants and other facilities within walking distance.
We had a very warm welcome from Paul and Eva, with lots of local information readily available from them.
We would definately book this again, thanks Paul and Eva.

A marvellous 2 weeks in October

  • 5 of 5
  • Submitted: Oct 24, 2011
  • Stayed: Oct 2011
Just returned from here relaxed.
A party of 7 ( age 6 - 71 years) stayed here in early October. The villa is truelly inviting, comfortable and fabulously equipped for whatever type of holiday you wish. It is big enough that a family of 7 (3 generations) were not living "ontop of one another". The beds and bedrooms were exceedingly comfortable. The kitchen was also well equipped. Wi-fi kept us all uptodate with the outside world (which does seem so far away from this little haven). The outdoor covered bbq area was a lovelly place to relax in the evening with candles and a bottle of port. Our two little girls loved the pool on hot afternoons. It is situated in a quiet hamlet which is serviced with good quality eating establishments, The waiters in the Olar do Campo restaurant were very welcoming and always pleased to see us. And also child friendly. This villa is well situated in the country to explore the many walks round about. We also par took in some retail therapy in Funchal 40 mins away (and through 21 long tunnels)! Staying here, a car does come in very handy.
One small note would be that with a party of 7 we hired a VW people carrier. The approach to the villa down the narrow lane and the entrance was tricky to maneouvre in a large vehicle and not for the faint hearted.
We would definetely return here and would highly recommend it. Paul provided an airport transfer at reasonable cost. He and Iva made us welcome and were on hand to answer any queries that cropped up.
