Wonderful villa with breathtaking view

  • 5 of 5

We were a family of 6, 4 adults and 2 children, Jan's villa was perfect for our needs, the fully furnished kitchen, the big space available, all made our stay very comfortable. We also used the swimming pool even if the weather was not so good and the water a bit cold, but i am sure in the warmest months the pool would have been a huge plus.

Near the villa in Calheta the Pingo Doce food store had everything you might need and more.

Bedrooms were very comfortable, clean.

Overall we were very happy, definitely we would recommend the vill ato anyone

Wow what a find Villa Fernando is absolutely fantastic. Clean spacious and very well equipped. The beds are so comfortable and the view from the master bedroom is to die for! Also the area is very quiet with only minimal cars using the narrow streets. It is possible to walk to the bar and restaurant about a 10 minute walk although you will need a torch if you are walking at night. We hired a car so often ate in Calheta the New Era is very good also a little restaurant called Naye Pizzeria at Loreta worth the drive fabulous mostly italian food. Thank you Jan for looking after us we will be back.

Relaxing stylish villa

  • 5 of 5

The photographs and details of Villa Fernando do not quite prepare you for the luxury and location. The open plan modern design is stylish and functional with an unobscured view of the Atlantic from the deck. Sunsets are spectacular. The area is quiet with almost no passing traffic on the small road to the villa. The villa has secure garage parking. The kitchen is fully equipped with a choice of breakfast bar, dining table or sundeck dining as you wish. The sun deck is a relaxing place to read sleep or take a dip in the pool - refreshing in November. The master suite has similar sea view and balcony with impressive ensuite and walk through wardrobe.

Madeira is compact and accessing levadas and mountain walking by car is easy from Calheta.

Dining out within walking distance is possible.

I would be veery happy recommend Villa Fernando the arrangements for booking, communication by email and meeting the owner were very straightforward. Jan also gave us lots of helpful advice and information about Madeira

Beware of the Dog

  • 4 of 5

This was our first trip to Madeira so didn't know any of the resorts. When Jan showed us into the villa it had the wow factor and it looks bigger and more impressive than in the photos. The villa is on a quiet road and has no immediate neighbours to the front or left.

We like this modern style and, although there are some cracks starting to appear and signs of damp spots the villa itself was as expected.

Unfortunately for us the holiday was ruined by the presence of a very loud Alsatian in the other modern villa which is positioned next door - to the front and right. The dog barked very loudly and very often. I feel it is important to mention this as, if we had known, we would never have booked it.

Our holidays are times when we want peace and quiet and be able to catch up on some much needed sleep and the fact that we were woken every day by the continual barking anywhere between 6 and 7.30am really did spoil the holiday.

I even bought some earplugs as I was getting so annoyed but it still woke me up with them in!

I did approach Jan early on to mention the dog and he told me that the dog was new and the owner had told him that it was "very intelligent and if you go and look at it and say shush it will stop". During the day you could go and do this but as soon as you sat back down it just started barking again. My point is though that when I'm asleep this is no help!

We had poor weather during our week so didn't get the chance to sit out by the pool very much but on the one afternoon we did the dog barked all the time.

The dog's owners are at fault as I don't think it was taken out at all and the villa looked empty so it was clearly being used as a guard dog. A lady just came in the morning to feed it and I think that is the only contact it had.

Hopefully this may not bother you but at least you now know of the potential issue.

The only other negatives were the lack of basic provisions in the villa. In UK cottages we have stayed in there are usually basic things there like milk, cooking oil, salt and pepper etc but here the only thing was tea bags. I can't believe other guests don't leave stuff - we left a lot - and it seems a bit mean not to have basics provided.

Owner's Response: Hello again ! Thank you for your 4 star review and let me say first The dog is gone" ! We talked to the neighbor and he kindly removed the dog to his other house in the capital Funchal, so problem solved. Also we have had workers in for a new makeover and fixed everything and the hole house has been painted again and it look fantastic. Come and see for yourself ! We hope everybody will read this and understand what a beautiful modern and perfect holiday house Villa Fernando really is. Thanks again and kind regards Jan
