Overview

About the property

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.

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.

I want to keep a secret

  • 5 of 5

I do not want to tell you how absolutely fabulous is Quinta Falcoes.

I want to keep this home a secret but I think the owners would not be too happy if I did not share my thoughts.

The floor to ceiling windows, I should hate to clean them, letting in perfect views; everything thought of to make your stay complete;

a spotlessly clean home; super comfy beds; soft towels; pristine linen; great pool.

A night time secret of clear dark skies, meteor showers, stars glistening.

The home that Virginia and Jon have created is quite lovely, so please do not take all the available dates as we must go back.

A massive thank you for letting us share such a super home

Beautiful villa, fabulous views and great location

  • 5 of 5

We stayed here during the October half-term, so everything was open but not too busy. Good time to visit, although the only downside was the changeable climate of a tropical island in October! No problem, as long as you take both swim wear & rain coats!

The villa is superbly presented and in an excellent location. The views from the pool area, sitting room and ALL bedrooms are outstanding. This is particularly good for families... as ALL the rooms are excellent and have the same view, so there's NO arguments!

It's located far enough away from everything to always be quiet and not overlooked, but is close enough to get to a supermarket and civilisation within a few minutes.

There's 5 of us in our family, with three children aged 21, 16 and 10. The villa is well equipped with plenty of things to do for all ages, so rain never stopped play!

I have to say that the pre-visit communication with the owners and the information they supplied was probably the best we've received in our experience of renting holiday villas. Apart from the usual details about the property that you'd expect, they have provided a comprehensive 'recommended days out' for your stay. A lot of effort has gone into this and even if you only follow a couple of them I can assure you that you'll have a great time. We used them as the basis for our week's visit and had an amazing experience that covered most of the island. We really feel that we 'did' Madeira by the time we got home.

Thank you for a fantastic holiday!

Lovely place to stay

  • 4 of 5

The villa is ideally located so plenty of opportunities to explore the island.

The views were amazing, every appliance we needed was available, the downstairs den was brilliant for the children to chill in, and the living area was spacious and clean with wonderful floor to ceiling windows/doors so we could sit inside and still have uninterrupted views. The beds were very comfortable and the bed linen was lovely.

The minor downsides were there were a lot of the pool tiles were missing (kept treading on them!) and the pool lights didn't work so the night time magic was lost a little for us. It was incredibly hot and only one of the ceiling fans worked so the children got that room! Fortunately it is in such a quiet and safe location that opening the doors was not a problem. The outside dining table and chairs could have done with a coat of wood treatment as they looked tired and I think just a bit of TLC before we arrived would have given this a five star rating. If we had gone out of season with it being less expensive I don't think it would have mattered but paying top whack in high season we really did want a 5 star villa.

We would recommend the villa, especially when some of the tired areas have been corrected.
