We loved the island and the property. It's old fashioned with lovely views and it's quite remote and very quiet. In a nice part of the island.

comfortable, rustic villa

  • 4 of 5

Enjoyed our stay in this rustic villa. Superb views, enjoyed swimming in the pool. Good location for walks - we walked along levadas and down the cliff path to the bay below. On the wet day, we enjoyed the warmth from the log fire. It has a steep drive, but once we got used to it, it wasn't a problem for us.

Spectacular Views on Paradise Island

  • 5 of 5

What a wonderful little village Faja Da Ovelha is, set against the hillside with tremendous views extending as far as the horizon line, a little bar, a lovely church and friendly locals, some speak English but others just nod in a friendly way to acknowledge you.

The villa is brilliant as a base for the island. It is far enough away from the airport to feel nicely isolated from the big bad world, but close enough to the star attractions to make the driving, and there will be a lot of that, not too straining.

You are met promptly by Emmanuel, who will check your flight times and be ready for your arrival. He is a wonderful man, who you have to envy, but in the nicest way of course as he has a wonderful location and property and seems very relaxed and clearly a happy man. He will show you everything you need to know and you can ask him anything you need or wish to know locally etc etc. P.s. The Orange's in the garden are amazing!!!!!

The villa has all facilities needed to make your stay comfortable. If I'm picky, then the beds are pretty hard but after a days walking on the Levadas or strolling the Botanic gardens, you will care little about this. There is TV and DVD for a stormy night (we had a few in December) or plenty of chairs and recliners for book reading on sunny days.

IMPORTANT- and I cant stress this enough, get a decent sized car, as our first hire car, An Opel Adam (the, 'or similar' we were given instead of the preferred) would not get up the incredibly steep driveway even after I kicked the bags out and my other half, all 6ft4 of him! Four attempts and lots of burnt rubber, it wasn't going to happen. We got a Renault Clio, at more expense but this went up the driveway perfectly. I would suggest a Diesel, as does Emmanuel. Note to self, must listen to advice when given more often!

For good food and quiet drinks we would suggest the MAKTUB in Paul do Mar, its the next village/small town along the coast. Excellent Food and Drinks from the most unassuming little surf style bar. They sell more Havana Club than anywhere else in Portugal and the food is fantastic. Tiny little place, no bigger than a beach hut but oozing with character. Or, try Prazeres for another amazing meal but with the locals this time and a few lost looking tourists. Funchal is lovely, but find the old fishing port end, its full of character, old buildings, churches, ports and exquisite restaurants.

All I can say is... We will be back and for longer next time

A family of five adults on vacation

  • 4 of 5

A beautiful and fully equipped house on a peaceful area with an impressive view to the Atlantic ocean. On the middle floor there is kitchen and and a spacious living room with a fire place. On top floor there are two bedrooms with a bathroom in each. A perfect pool terrace for sun bathing as well as a separate nice little barbeque house for making your own espetada or other culinar masterpieces, bananas and herbs growing in the garden. We spent lovely 10 days on Madeira island enjoying local agricultural market in Prazeres, walking the levadas, shopping in Funchal, swimming in Porto Moniz (also in our "own" pool) and having many other activities. Being accomodated in this lovely house, a car is very helpful for reaching the place and travelling around the island. We had a Ford Focus STW rental car with a diesel engine, wich is a good choice to the mountain roads. The driveway from the road to the house is quite steep and therefore attention should be paid when driving up for the first time. There is a garage with a remote controlled door for the car on ground floor of the house as well as a remote controlled gate in the beginning of driveway. Many thanks to our friendly host and his family for the kind instructions for the house and its equipment and good hints for travelling on Madeira. Special thanks for the recipe of real local style of espetada, very delicious.
