Guestbook comments from the owner

Wir haben 2 wunderschöne Wochen verbracht im Casa Laranja. Es ist genau so wie beschrieben auf der Website von Fewo. Der Besitzer, Herr Marcel, hat uns auch viel über die Wandermöglichkeiten erklärt und kennt sich als offiziele Bergführer sehr gut aus. Die wohnung war gut ausgestattet und sauber. Falls wir madeira mal wieder besuchen, werden wir bestimmt zurück kommen. Ruhige lage aber einfach zu erreichen mit wundervollem Blick auf Atlantik.

Faja da Ovelha, a small agricultural village close to the town of Calheta with the only white sandy beach on Madeira. The village is named after a landslide (Faja) after which the sheep (Ovelha) took over land to graze. Nowadays sheep are are a rare sighting on the island. Most cattle can be found in the mountains, where cows peacefully and freely walk on the high plateau of Paul da Serra.

From the property you have a stunning sea and mountain view. The houses are set in a rural area which is very tranquil and peaceful. The sunset can be admired from the houses all year around, truly a never boring sight. From the houses one can explore the island along its levadas, the irrigation canals of which Madeira is very famous. There is always a levada meeting your standard, from easy going to very extreme.

Perfect location with a nice view

  • 4 of 5

The house is perfect for a stay of one couple. The house is well maintained and has all amenities you need for your stay. Nice view over the ocean. The pictures shown are exactly how it looks over there. We loved it because it was very quite and because we did not want to stay in a hotel or a city. Location is one hour from Funchal. We did rent a car which is necessary if you want to stay here. But it is necessary too to move around the island. Roseann the housekeeper is really nice and helpful. She replies without any delay to all mail communication. We loved it!

Madeira Sunset Holiday Homes

  • 5 of 5

Our stay in Madeira was superb thanks to the perfect accomodation of Madeira Sunset Holiday Homes. Both houses, of which we used Casa Maracuja, have a spectacular view over the seaside. The houses are very comfortable, nicely furnished and have a good kitchen and luxurious design bathrooms. Furthermore it is situated at the sunny south side of the island. We loved the silence of the small village.

Fantastic holiday house, magnificent ocean vieuws

  • 5 of 5

Wellmaintained holyday house, clean, fully equiped kitchen, bathroom with shower, bath, toilet and bidet, good quality beds. Magnificent situated on the south-west coast of the island. 180 degrees ocean vieuws (sunsets!). If you are looking for beauty of nature and tranquility, this is the perfect place. However, you do need a rental car here.

Once you stayed here, you want to keep coming back.

Toller Blick, ruhige Lage

  • 4 of 5

Wir haben 1 Woche in dem Haus verbracht, das für 2 Personen eine schöne Größe hat und mit einem wirklich tollen, unverbauten Ausblick auf Meer und Sonnenuntergang punkten kann. Die Palmen im Vorgarten sind mittlerweile natürlich deutlich größer und auch die Einrichtung zeigt hier oder da Spuren langjähriger Nutzung. Wir haben bzgl. der Ausstattung nichts vermisst. Im Haus herrscht z.T. eine hohe Luftfeuchtigkeit, die mit vorhandenen Geräten "bekämpft" werden kann, funktionierte wunderbar. Ein Defekt im Badezimmer wurde innerhalb weniger Stunden behoben, sehr vorbildlich. Trotz der Lage an der Straße ist es ruhig, denn es herrscht nicht wirklich viel Verkehr dort. Am Ende der Straße beginnt ein recht spektakulärer Wanderweg runter an die Küste (nach Paul do Mar). Wir hatten alles in allem einen schönen Aufenthalt im Casa Laranja!

Nette Kontaktperson, Fewo ist super ausgestattet. Wir waren 3 Wochen zu zweit und wir wollten es bewusst, abgeschieden und ruhig. Perfekt für uns. Uns hat es nichts ausgemacht, dass kein Restaurant und kein Laden in nächster Nähe war.
