Absolutely fantastic cottage in Seixal

  • 5 of 5

Fantastic place to spend family holidays. Quiet and peaceful Seixal offers great views, beach, two local restaurants and a natural swimming pool. Cottage is clean, well equipped and very friendly owner is always willing to help and provide information. Seixal is also a great place to explore the island, only 10 minutes from Porto Moniz and 45 minutes from Funchal.

Entspannung Pur!

  • 5 of 5

Es war eine wunderschöne Zeit in der Villa von Herr Velosa. Wir wurden sehr nett in Empfang genommen. Das Haus war sehr gepflegt, sauber und komplett eingerichtet. Wir waren erstaunt, dass einfach alles vorhanden war.

Der Ausblick von der Terasse oder auch vom Bett aus, wenn wir die Augen öffneten, war jeden Tag aufs neue, einfach nur fantastisch.

Das Wetter war in dieser Zeit leider schlechter als erhofft. Mit dem Leihwagen haben wir dann einfach die gesamte Insel erkundet. Unsere letzten 3 Tage vor Ort, haben wir auch in Sonnenschein verbracht.

Auf der Insel sowie in der Gegend, gibt es viel zu entdecken. Wir kommen auf jedenfall wieder.

Auto ist zwingend erforderlich, wenn man etwas entdecken möchte. Selbst für Einkäufe benötigt man ein Auto. Allerdings ist alles in nur 10 Autominuten erreichbar.

Vielen Dank Herr Velosa, für die schöne Zeit in Ihrer Villa.

Beste Grüße Kim & Markus

Wow

  • 5 of 5

Merveilleuse maison, vue époustouflante, propreté exemplaire (Rita, la dame qui s'occupe de la maison est une vraie perle). Maison très bien équipée, vous ne manquerez de rien. Le propriétaire est charmant, l'accueil est sympathique et il est à l'écoute de vos besoins. Nous avons adoré notre sejour dans ce petit paradis. Seul bémol, la température, les nuages ayant tendance à s'accrocher aux magnifiques montagnes de la region

Excellent accomodation for magnificent holidays

  • 5 of 5

We are very grateful to Rui Velosa for the wonderful 10 days we spent in this unique house in Seixal. The fantastic view, the tastefully furnished rooms, the perfectly equipped kitchen, the warm hearted helpfulness and generosity of our host, the peacefull and charming village in that impressive landscape - everything made our stay unforgettable and made us instantly wishing to come back as soon as possible. During our stay we enjoyed a caring service and found little suprises like local bread, wine and fruits and little sometings for the children. With two couples, two children aged 3,5 years and a baby of 8 month we felt very comfortable in the spacious house and the garden, which is very well suited as well as playground and as spot for the deck chair to just lay back and observe the waves. I will never forget watching the sunrise over the moutains and sea from the terrace, breathing the rich sea breeze. Half of our holidays we spent relaxing at Seixal, the other half we visited the beautiful island. Via tunnel even Funchal and surroundings very easily accessable by car. One of the most beautiful adventures with the kids was to explore the dark green forest in the valley Chao da Ribeira just a five minute drive from Seixal and to stop at its excellent restaurant for a delicious real Madeiran dinner. Eventhough all these superlatives in my rating might sound slightly not authentic I can only recommend this place as a perfect holiday destination.

La casa es excepcional, con todas las comodidades y decorada con muy buen gusto. Seixal es un pueblo encantador , con pequeña playa y piscina natural, buen restaurante, y situado en la zona norte, cerca de la entrada a cañones , levadas y senderos. Ideal para barranquistas.
