Casa Serena provided the perfect base for our holiday. The property was exactly as described and was immaculate clean. The owners are superb hosts and make a special effort to make you feel welcome: fruit and wine is waiting for you as is a very hospitable welcome on your arrival. I would have no hesitation recommending Casa Serena to anyone and this is definitely a place we will return to.
Arco da Calheta is ideally placed on the SW of the island: Calheta itself is easy to reach and has a super hotel (the Calheta Beach) where excellent meals are available at reasonable prices); there is also a supermarket and other small shops. Travel is easy to anywhere on the island - even travelling to Funchal only takes 45 minutes if following the express roads.
Casa Serena provided us with the perfect base for walking and driving excursions and enabled us to see the great variety the island has to offer.
This was an excellent property to stay in and offers everything needed for a long or short break.
Beautiful flat, very spacious and very comfortable- a real home from home. Catherine, the landlady is a very friendly and helpful person. There are lots of shops, restaurants and a great beach nearby as well as easy access to Funchal and roads to all parts of the island. However the highlight of our holiday must be sitting on the balcony after a relaxing day watching the sun go down with a glass of Madeira.
Amazing! Very spacious apartment with all facilities. Large kitchen/diner, bedroom we want to transport home! Views from the wide balcony are stunning - ocean to the right, mountains to the left - sunrise and sunset are spectacular.
Brian and Catherine are very friendly, helpful and gave us plenty of tips on what to see,
where to go.
Centrally placed for the sandy beaches at Calheta and Madalena do Mar and levada walks in the mountains.
We couldn't recommend a stay at Casa Serena more highly and if Trip Advisor would allow, this would be a 6 star property!
The appartment offered everything we were looking for and we felt ourselves at home from the beginning. It was comfortable, cozy and luxurious all in one.
Brian welcomed us with fruit and wine, provided us with any information, we needed, and helped even with little problems. We enjoyed ourselves so much, that we would recommend the appartment to everybody who is looking for some proper holiday!:)
We booked this apartment for almost a month. From the moment you drive up the hill to this immaculate place and then walk into the apartment it just is amazing!! You have everything you need there, the owners have made sure that you are comfortable, they have put their heart and soul into this place and they are also the friendliest people too. We would HIGHLY recommend the apartment and it has such a gorgeous view of the ocean, along with seeing the paragliders, even saw Dolphins ( with binoculars). there is a lovely village within walking distance if you need any groceries, coffee bars and also if you walk up to the viewing platform which is about 100 metres away with a glass of wine you can watch the sunset. It was nice to come back to after a day's outing, and we felt like it was a home away from home. Thanks to Brian and Catherine for such a memorable place to stay.
Casa Serena was a delight to relax in or return to after a day of activity. It was fully equipped and spotlessly clean. The balcony was accessible from the living or bedroom areas and was a lovely place to sit and enjoy the view.
The Wisteria clad garden was a delightful spot for an al fresco lunch. The popular Rabacal walks were within a 15 minute drive, and other levadas even closer. We especially enjoyed the variety of scenery and wildflowers on the walk from Ponta del Pargo via Cabo. The chocolate cake at Fio Mio afterwards was an added bonus! The shop/cafe in Loretto was a good place to drink a coffee, purchase fresh bread and observe local life. The friendly, English speaking staff at the restaurant at the top of the hill cooked us delicious, fresh fish.
Our grateful thanks go to Brian and Catherine for their prompt response to all our queries both on-line and while we were staying
Our only slight niggle was the lack of on site access to the internet. However, sitting in the car with the laptop, outside the social centre, was a novel experience!
