Golf at Palheiro

  • Submitted: Sep 25, 2013
  • Stayed: Sep 2013
We have thoroughly enjoyed your beautifully designed house, thank you.
We enjoyed golf at Palheiro. It is well worth hiring a buggy as we carried our bags on the first day and felt the effects afterwards! The 17th is a very tough hole of the back!!
We would recommend Convento das Vinhos restuarant . Good staff and good food.
The Vista Prazerus is also well worth a visit. The skewered beef is strongly recommended
We also recommend the levada walks which allowed us to see Madeira life close to.

Wonderful vacation

  • Submitted: Sep 25, 2013
  • Stayed: Aug 2013
I would like to thank you on behalf of my family for letting is stay at your house in Madeira. We had a wonderful vacation.
Madeira is a beautiful island. It is clean, the people are very kind and helpful and the scenery is breathtaking.
Our first thought when we arrived at Casa das Flores, was that this definitely wasn't gonna be our first and last stay.
Casa das Flores is offering so much luxury that we were stunned for the first few days. We've enjoyed the swimming pool, the BBQ, the scenery, the evenings while playing cards and most of all the quietness. We were stunned when we arrived and a little bit sad when we had to leave.
The house was clean, fully equipped with whatever we needed and even more than that, in short it felt like home.
Vanda and 'her crew' were polite and thorough in their work. She received us with a kind politeness that I've never experienced before so she is a true ambassador for you and your house.

The pool is amazing

  • Submitted: Jun 22, 2013
  • Stayed: Jun 2013
What a wonderful house. Our expectations were exceeded. We had great holidays here on Madeira. The pool is amazing and your kitchen is a dream. It was a lot of fun to feed the lizards with melon and your interesting Madeiran cherries. We had a fantastic experience with dolphins at the sea of Calheta. We liked the Aquarium at Porto Moniz and my brother dived in the sea.

Madeira was breathtaking!

  • Submitted: Feb 12, 2013
  • Stayed: Dec 2012
Thank you for having us to stay at Casa das Flores. We had a lovely relaxing week. The children really enjoyed the pool. The house was very comfortable and extremely well equipped.
We made good use of all the walking and eating books. We had fabulous meals in particular at
O Fino in Ponta da Pargo, a must for the view too!
O Calhetas - the steak cooked at the table on the hot stone was divine! Also it was child friendly - great pizzas and spaghetti bowl.
Engenho Velho - We discovered on our last night and we were so pleased. Delightful family running the place, great fresh food AND do try the red wine- CARM - deliciously rich and smooth.
We did 2 very different walks, both quite long. One along the levada close to Porto Moniz, and another very strenuous one near Santana. Quite spectacular seaside cliff walk and our reward was lunch at the lovely Quinta da Furao.
The kids enjoyed Monte and the cable car ride. We had a great shopping day in Funchal too. Really cheap leather shoes.
The New Year fireworks were quite breathtaking though as Sydneysiders, it did not quite compare. We were very pleased to find a great vantage point and we also managed to escape most of the traffic on the mass exodus from Funchal after midnight.
Thank you again, Madeira was breathtaking and our stay at Casa das Flores, a very comfortable and pleasant one.

Amazed by the views

A family from Denmark
Our family had a great time staying here. We were amazed by the view and the house and we have enjoyed our vacation the entire time because of the beautiful surroundings.
We favoured the fish restaurant down the hill - it was delicious.
We went hiking for Risco and the 25 waterfalls and took some trips to Funchal.

Owners comment.
The restaurant Rocamar is 5 mins by car at CALHETA beach.
The parking area for Risco and the 25 Fonts about 15 mins by car.
