A piece of heaven

  • 5 of 5

A stay at Casa da Ribeira Seca is like travelling in time. You can easily imagine what this wonderfully restored and maintained house looked like a century ago. Add all modern amenities, impeccable taste and an incredible collection of art, historic and modern. All this could be intimidating but has the warm feel of a lived-in family home. The owner Francisco is the most caring, charming and discreet host you can wish for.

You can choose between three very different bedrooms, all with squeaky-clean and beautiful ensuite bathrooms. Comfy beds, at night it´s very, very quiet.

If you look for a quiet place on Madeira, away from the crowd, then this is it. You will never tire of the beautiful and stunning mountain view. It´s a short drive to the beautiful North coast. Try swimming in the Piscinas Naturais in Porto Moniz or take the teleferico in Achadaz da Cruz for a stunning ride. Wonderful restaurant in Seixal, Solmar - try the beefsteak! If you don´t want to go out for meals there is a bar / restaurant across the street from Casa da Ribeira Seca with local cuisine and excellent Poncha.

We were very lucky with the weather and enjoyed sitting out in the garden, watching the scenery, relaxing and trying to figure out what the very special magic of this place might be. Maybe you will find out when you´ll stay there and it will put a spell on you, too. We will certainly come again.

Lovely place to stay and ideal to return!

  • 5 of 5

We`ve been at "Casa da Ribeira Seca" for 5 days and enjoyed our stay a lot.

We want to thank Francisco for his warm welcome and for the hospitality which definitely contributed to making our stay even nicer and to feeling like home.

In fact, the apartment is perfect, the photographs hooked us and the reality is even better: sophisticated environment, wonderful views, very well decorated with charming antique furniture.

To conclude, if you are looking for a quiet place to stay in Madeira, this is the one, and Francisco is the most charming, caring host you could wish to meet.

We hope to come back soon.

Thank you for everything.

Warm regards XX
