Amazing views

  • 5 of 5

This was our second visit to Madeira, first one in 2014 when we stayed in an hotel; this time decided to be independent and rent a car , as well, which is a must to get to this property.

Couple of minor negative points: no internet upstairs, crawling insects inside the house , bad smell in the downstairs bathrooms, shower windows/ pool glass blurred due to hard water in the region.

On the positive side : amazing views, really quite area, owner really helpful and responsive, nice welcome package well received.

Thank you, Joana and Vanda.

Tranquility and fantastic views

  • 5 of 5

Villa Clementina is perfectly positioned in a very quiet area with great views over the Atlantic Ocean as well as the countryside. We spent 13 days there and enjoyed every second. Here are the reasons why:

- The quietness and the views are second to none

- The kitchen is modern, well functioning and well equipped

- The three bedrooms all have beds with fairly firm matresses and pillows with memory foam, which we liked, for a good - and very quiet - night's sleep

- No less than four bathrooms, all with toilets and showers (a bathroom for each of the three bedrooms and a common) as well as a bathroom outdoors if you are wet. In addition, there is an outdoor shower for use after a dip in the pool.

- The pool is big allowing you to actually swim. During our stay in July the water temperature was around 30°C - without heating. But if 30°C is too cold for you, you have the option to get the pool heated for an additional fee.

- Well-functioning Wi-Fi and TV with a DVD player. But due to the thick walls of the solidly built house the Wi-Fi cannot penetrate to the upper floor bedrooms.

Of local restaurants we also recommend Casa Grelhados Prazeres Rurais and Chico as previous reviewers. Good local food and friendly service.

The supermarket in Prazeres is OK, but the one in Calheta is a lot better. You will find a bigger supermarket in Ribeira Brava (Continente) and of course several in Funchal.

As mentioned in the previous review, we also recommend the use of a GPS device to locate the villa, otherwise you will have a tough time finding it. Joana provides these coordinates in a email after your final payment. Also, Joana responds promptly to questions you may have prior to booking and prior to your arrival.

All in all highly recommended.

Obrigado Jooana

Entspricht der Beschreibung

  • 5 of 5

Wir haben genau das vorgefunden, was auch beschrieben war. Der Blick auf den Atlantik ist in der Tat überwältigend und das Haus ist komfortabel ausgestattet. Ein wahrhaft ruhiges Plätzchen abseits der Touristenströme. Guter Ausgangspunkt, um die Insel zu erkunden. Alternativ kann man es sich aber auch am Pool gut gehen lassen. Die Kommunikation vor Ort war ebenso vorbildlich. Nur zu empfehlen!

The happiness of our guests is our greatest joy ;) I would like to invite you to a longer stay at Madeira island, we'll soon have another villa in Funchal (Villa Alvinho) and another one at the Porto Santo island (Villa Golf), famous for its golden sandy beach. We hope to have the pleasure of hosting you again in the future ;)

Wunderschöne, sehr ruhig gelegene Villa!

  • 5 of 5

Wir hatten eine super schöne Woche in der Villa Clementina. Die Ausstattung in der Küche und in den Bädern ist modern und sehr gut. Vor allem die Duschen haben uns durch das viele und warme Wasser ausgesprochen gut gefallen.

Der Blick von der Terrasse und vom Pool aus ist einzigartig und man hat von morgens bis spät am Nachmittag Sonne auf der Terrasse.

Der Kontakt mit Joana per e-mail und Vanda vor Ort war professionell aber herzlich.

Wir würden jederzeit wieder hier buchen.

Peaceful and relaxing

  • 5 of 5

We enjoyed 2 very nice weeks at Villa Celmentina. The house is located very nice with an terrific view. A car is required. All communication was professional, fast and easy. We selected the option heated pool and can only recommend this, you will enjoy it. The house was clean and even every 3 bedrooms had their own external entrance and every room their own bathroom. We were being surprised by a starter package with water and breakfast food etc.

The wifi coverage issue some persons commented in their response is fixed by a repeater. We can only recommend this house. Enjoy!

Amazing view

  • 4 of 5

I liked:

Terrace, heated pool, modern interior, amenities (kitchen, dishwasher, washing machine)

We planned many hiking trips in the area, but found ourselfs - stunned by the view - more often on the terrace then on the trails. The terrace is perfectly build, as it's aligned towards south, so you can enjoy the sunlight almost all day.

Regarding the pool: Be aware that it costs 15$/day extra. We didn't read the description carefully and were a little surprised. In my opinion the heated pool is worth the extra money!

I didn't like:

There are a lot of centipedes in the house, no matter how many i killed, there always were new ones. (reason for the lacking star)

The cheap and broken knifes in the kitchen. (minor point)

No way to recycle plastic waste. (minor point)

To sum it up: We had a wonderful stay at villa clementina and if we visit Madeira again, i am quite sure we will stay here again!

Thanks Vanda and Joana!

Owner's Response: Thanks Jan for your kind reccomendation. We are very glad that you enjoyed your stay. We reaaly appreciate your feedback, very important to improving our work as hosts. We do regular disinfestations, but it's a country house, so it's impossible to remove totaly. Anyway we appreciate your observation we will certainly improve this aspect. For the next time I strongly advise you to visit the Porto Santo Island, famous for the gold sandy beach. We have also a wonderful villa there (Villa Golf). We're about to open a new unit in Funchal city, which should be operating from May 1st, 2017.I will be very happy to welcome you again. Farewell
