About the property

Situated on top of a private cliff on the western coast of Madeira, our Quinta do Espigão is surrounded by all the natural beauty of this delightful island. The architecture of the generously sized house shows the influence of Portuguese and Moorish elements and reflects ideas of modern art. It is surrounded by a grove of pine trees, a beautiful garden and a little vineyard which will before long supply local wine. The house offers two double rooms on the ground floor and one single room up in the tower. There are two bathrooms, a washing-machine and a large kitchen opening up to the living room with a big table and an open fire. In cooler weather, a wood-fired floor heating in all the rooms provides comfortable warmth. Two sheltered terraces in front of the Quinta with romantic fountains offer a breathtaking view of the Atlantic Ocean.

A very special place

  • 5 of 5

We spent the most amazing week in Willys cliff side home... which is even more spectacular than the photos!

I genuinely can't recommend this place highly enough. Not only has Willy designed his home superbly, the views are second to none. There is everything you might need for a stay. Willy has thought of everything and is a warm and generous host.

We loved being away from the busyness of the city and enjoying a much more authentic experience of Madeira. It is really worth the effort to come a little further out and fully enjoy how spectular this island really is.

Thank you, Willy for sharing your home with us! Genuinely one of the best places that I have ever stayed :-)

Beautiful property!

  • 5 of 5

Myself and my husband stayed here in May 2017 for my 30th birthday. The villa is absolutely beautiful, even better in real life than in the pictures. Very secluded and out of the way of the usual tourist spots. Willy was incredibly friendly and gave us lots of useful information for places to go (and to avoid) during our stay, and offered us fresh herbs and salad from his garden. Don't be put off by some of the reviews which mention the road down to the house, we had a Volkswagon Up as a rental car and it managed the road fine.

There are several restaurants near to the villa and Willy was able to give us local knowledge on them. We really enjoyed Restaurante O Forno, we ate 3 courses as it was so good. The restaurant at the lighthouse at Ponto do Pargo was not very good when we ate there. There is a supermarket around 30 minutes away in Calheta which is easy enough to get to by car and we nipped back a few times during our stay. Calheta also has lovely places to eat along the harbour where you can sit outside and enjoy the weather.

Can't recommend this place enough and hope to be back.

Je recommande très vivement cette location. Willy est une personne charmante, nous avons été très bien accueillis avec bcp de petites attentions tout au long de notre séjour (figues, tomates, basilic....le tout venant du jardin). La maison est magnifique, très bien entretenue aussi bien à l'intérieur qu'à l'extérieur, aménagée avec beaucoup de goût et de cachet. La vue sur l'océan et sur le phare de Ponta do Pargo est un spectacle permanent dont on ne se lasse pas. Véhicule indispensable pour sillonner dans la région. Merci Willy, nous avons passé un excellent séjour dans votre quinta d'exception, nous espérons avoir l'occasion de revenir un jour.

A great place to stay.

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful time and enjoyed a lot that we had the possibility to stay in this unique and romantic place. The house and the garden are fabulous and spacious, with many beautiful details. It's quiet, clean and well equipped. Willy is a great, attentive and respectful host, he surprised us from time to time with fresh spices and tomatoes from his garden. It's a fantastic place to stay, I would definitely return!

Spektakulärer Blick und wunderschöne Lage

  • 5 of 5

Auf der Suche nach einem neuen Ferienziel haben uns die Bilder dieses traumhaften Hauses schnell überzeugen können und wir machten uns mit der 7-köpfigen Familie zum ersten Mal auf den Weg nach Madeira. Wir haben diese Entscheidung keinen Tag bereut!

Das Haus liegt in einer sehr ruhigen und spektakulären Landschaft mit malerischem Blick aufs Meer und auf den Leuchtturm Punta do Pargo. Das Haus ist sehr geschmack- und liebevoll eingerichtet, der Garten stand in vollster Blütenpracht, der Schwimmteich stellte für die Kinder bei bis zu 30 Grad Celsius den Hauptaufenthaltsort dar und der Innenhof diente uns bei starkem Wind als windgeschützter Sonnenplatz.

Genauso spektakulär wie die Landschaft zeigte sich auch das Wetter. Die Wetterverhältnisse veränderten sich täglich: über stark windig bis sehr ruhig, von intensiver Sonneneinstrahlung bis zu plötzlich aufziehendem Nebel. Wir fanden dies fantastisch, da es somit nie zu heiß und der Sommer hier sehr angenehm zu ertragen war. Zudem konnten wir hier den schönsten Regenbogen unseres Lebens beobachten.

Hervorzuheben ist insbesondere die Gastfreundlichkeit unseres Besitzers, der uns bereits bei der Ankunft mit einer frischen Schale Obst und einem mit Getränken gefüllten Kühlschrank begrüßt hat. Regelmäßig beglückte er uns mit frischen Kräutern aus dem Garten, Kartoffeln und selbstgemachter Feigenmarmelade. Willi zeigte sich sehr aufmerksam und kümmerte sich täglich um den Schwimmteich und die Bewässerung der Gartenanlage, was aber keinesfalls aufdringlich oder störend wirkte. Willi kümmerte sich um die Lösung jeglicher Probleme: sei es die gemeinsame Rettungsaktion einer in Not geratenen Möwe (namens „Nautilus“, die uns später täglich besuchen kam,) oder die Aufstockung unseres Daten-Budgets. Wir konnten aufgrund seines Tipps („Lobosonda“ in Calheta) einen wundervollen Ausflug aufs Meer unternehmen und Delfine hautnah erleben.

Herzlichen Dank dir lieber Willi für diesen außerordentlich schönen Urlaub, den wir in deinem Haus verbringen durften.

Für Ruhesuchende Romantiker

  • 5 of 5

Hier gibt es einen Traumblick auf den Atlantik im Blumenmeer - die Fotos übertreiben nicht! Das Haus einfach, aber sehr geschmackvoll eingerichtet, mit orientalischen Anklängen. Schlafqualität sehr gut. Der Besitzer betreut seine Gäste mit Freude und Diskretion-man fühlt sich wohl dabei!
