Small but every thing is there

  • 5 of 5

I came for a walking holiday and was not disappointed. In the little house a separate room with double bed with a memory foam mattress and a sofa chair and a double wardrobe. Laminate on the floor. And a electric heater. That was very handy as the first few days were quit cold. In the small living room/kitchen a double sofa bed, small table and chairs and a barstool at the breakfast bar. And a very nice wood burning stove with a free supply of firewood. In the kitchen is everything you need. Proper knifes, sieve, hand juicer. Good pots and pans, although a new big frying pan would be good as it is scratched a bit. The shower room is tiny but good enough. Lots of storage space. And a tv for the evening with a very good supply of channels in various languages and sport channels. Outside space is private with a barbecue and washing lines. Table and chairs and foldable sunbed. In storage space also pegs and foldable washing rack. Levada is around the corner. Small supermarket 5 min drive away. Bigger one at Calheta beach. All in all the perfect holiday house. Joao is the perfect host. Very recommended.

Sehr empfehlenswert

  • 5 of 5

Wir haben zwei Wochen in diesem Ferienhaus verbracht. Die Lage ist für Individualisten ideal, insbesondere für Wanderungen ist hier ein idealer Ausgangspunkt. Fernab vom Tourismus findet man hier Ruhe und Erholung. Hier stehen die Kühe im Vorgarten, Hunde schlafen mitten auf der Straße, der Hahn kräht zum Frühstück. Fussläufig erreicht man eine kleine Bar, zwei typische Restaurants laden zum leckeren Essen ein. Die Vermieter sind super freundlich, um ihre Gäste bemüht, aber niemals aufdringlich (DANKE für den leckeren Honig Ihrer fleißigen Bienen).

Très bon séjour à Prazeres,chez Joa.

La maison est agréable avec l'espace terrasse très intime et plaisant du petit déjeuner au dîner.

Joa est sympathique, a de bons conseils, la levada si proche permet un bon moment de détente.Je recommanderai ce logement car dans cette partie de l'île il y a de belles escapades à faire . Les commerces et la plage sont proches.

Nettes, kleines Häuschen mit Privatsphäre

  • 4 of 5

Das kleine Ferienhaus ist zweckmässig und vollständig eingerichtet und eignet sich vom Standort her für einen Wanderurlaub. Es hat sogar eine Waschmaschine. Wenn es am Abend kühl wird, kann man mit dem Schwedenofen eine wohlige Wärme erzeugen. Die Terasse, auf der man auch ungestört in der Sonne liegen kann, hat einen Aussengrill. Holz für beides ist vorhanden. Das kleine Bad besitzt aus Platzgründen auch ein sehr kleines Waschbecken, dafür ist die Dusche erstaunlich geräumig. Der Spiegel könnte etwas grösser sein. Das Bett ist gross genug für 2 Personen, für mich allein war also auch genug Platz. Grosser Kleiderschrank mit vielen Bügeln, Bügelbrett und Bügeleisen vervollständigen die Ausstattung. Mit Parkplatz direkt vor der Tür war das Haus der Ideale Ausgangspunkt für meinen gelungenen Wanderurlaub.

Es hat mir sehr gut gefallen und nochmals vielen Dank an den netten Vermieter für das kleine Glas Honig aus eigener Imkerei.
