Overview

Faja Da Ovelha Villa Rental Photos and Description

4 bedroom villa, sleeps 8, private heated swimming pool, stunning sea view

The villa has stunning views of the sea and mountains. The villa was built in 2008 to a luxury specification and the architect has done a wonderful job taking advantage of the views by designing a 4 bedroom villa which fits perfectly in the land entitled ' Sitio dos falcoes' (site of the falcons) and creating all 'rooms with a view'. The villa has 3 double rooms & 1 twin with comfortable beds and pillows, duvets, blankets, built in wardrobes and wonderful views of the sea. The villa has 4 bathrooms, two are en-suite, one family bathroom and an additional w/c room. The villa has a sociable open plan kitchen, dining and sitting room area. The kitchen is well equipped with dishwasher, fridge/freezer (inc. ice-maker), hob and electric fan oven. On the veranda is a large eight seater table and a large BBQ. The Cinema / Games Room provides either a haven to escape from the sun, entertainment on rainy days or a venue for after dinner 'contests'. The villa has internet access / WiFi.

Suitability:
  • Long-term Renters Welcome
  • Low Allergen Environment
  • children welcome
  • non smoking only

Quinta Falcoes October 2009

  • 5 of 5

Quinta Falcoes exceeded all our expectations, well planned accommodation of a very high standard, complimented by fantastics sea views and stunning sunsets.

The heated pool was very very warm, allowing it to be enjoyed well into the evening during October.

With the luxury accommodation and fantastic surroundings we only eat out once making full use of the barbecue, providing a truly relaxing holiday.

Rosa and Gilberto gave us a warm welcome and lots if local information in addition to the well prepared “ Things To Do” folders.

Rooms were clean, light and well dressed with quality soft furnishings on a par with any boutique hotel.

You can either meander from village to village on the back roads or make use of the new network, the nearest large supermarket is in Calheta 15 minutes away, also in Calheta is Centros das Artes (museum of contemporary arts) well worth visit for it’s exhibitions, views and design.

I can only agree with the other reviewers, this is a villa that ticks all the boxes.

We've already book for 2010.

Owner's Response: Thank you so much for your kind words about our home in Madeira - we love holidaying there and are really glad that you enjoyed your stay as well. Thank you also for your compliment about my choice of 'soft furnishings' as I personally chose everything in the house! We are continuing to explore the island and are adding to the 'things to do' folder as we discover more - our most recent walk started in Encumeada by a lavada taking us through the mountain (in a tunnel) to the rain forest on the north side of the mountain.

This is a beautiful Villa in a stunning location

  • 5 of 5

We holidayed at this Villa with two friends .It has the most amazing views, and the Villa itself is very well equipped and spacious ,The pool was a great size and was a perfect temperature to allow you to have a swim in the evening . The property has been very well thought out , and the BBQ was spotless (other villas let themselves down here in my opinion) and well placed near the Kitchen area .The bedrooms are spacious and have great wardrobe space .The bedding was luxurious ,with quality cotton sheets .

Fortunately we did not need to contact the carers ,as everything was perfect for us . I would advise anyone visiting here to make use of this fabulous villa ,as you need to drive to most restaurants , and this is the perfect place to eat in and enjoy the views.

We would like to Thank the owners for allowing us the priviledge of renting there home .

Amazing house with an amazing view

  • 5 of 5

When we arrived at the house it really took our breath away, the sun was just setting and it was an amazing sight. The views are absolutely stunning and it is the most beautiful house we have ever stayed in. We hope to return next year to soak up the sun and relax and see that view again. The pictures on the website don’t really do the house justice as it is more impressive in real life. It is more than we could have wished for, it’s spacious, modern, tastefully decorated and very well equipped. In addition to that all the rooms have an amazing sea view. The owners kept in touch with us before, during and after our stay which we thought was a nice touch. Madeira itself is really beautiful and interesting island and we found the local people very charming. All in all we had an amazing time and would thoroughly recommend this accommodation.

Great villa in a breathtaking surrounding

  • 5 of 5

Our decision to spend a 12-days holiday in Quinta Falcoes was based on reviews and posted pictures of other holidaymakers about the property. So the expectation was really high. But seeing the gem of Quinta Falcoes with your own eyes in reality is even still better as looking at the pictures before! This place is really a special one. Each day we had to take a difficult decision: staying at the wonderful pool-area and enjoying the quiet of the property and the incredible view of the sea or making a tour into the surrounding. In the end we found a good mixture between both possibilities.

You can really rely on the description of house and property given by the owner. We had some questions in preparation of the holiday and got all answered via e-mail. We enjoyed the offered service of a first shopping (for a really small fee) and found the fridge stocked with all the essentials when we arrived. A really effective team of cleaners (we saw a group of three ladies arriving at the time of our departure) keep the Quinta in a proper and clean state.

We really loved the place and hope to come back some time.
