High up with a fantastic view, quiet and relaxing break away
Prior to us going away, Heather forwarded us directions to the apartment which was very informative and also had photos of signage to look out for which was very helpful. Upon arrival Heather was there to greet us with a warm welcome and a nice gift bag of some groceries to get us started including some wine. She was very helpful with places to visit and where to eat as she has spent several years on the Island, so she knows her onions!! The bungalow we stayed in was ideal with a terrific view, we had all we needed, even a wood burner which came in handy as the weather was changeable and in the evenings it did get a bit cool. The bungalow apartments are up a very steep hill, but the most of the hills on the Island are very steep, and there’s many, an experience to be hold in a Fiat Punto. Plenty of room in the smaller bungalow which we had for two and well equipped, even had use of the underground garage to park our car. We would definitely recommend Banda do Sol to stay, very relaxing with a nice and helpful host. The pool area is ideal to chill and relax when the sun is out, sadly it was a bit to cool to try the pool but the children staying next door had plenty of fun the the cold water. Thank you Heather, and if we return, your sure to hear from us. Lynn & Paul x x
If you are looking for a perfect place to relax and chill out away from it all then this is the place. We stayed here for 10 days and it way just what we were looking for, out of the way but close enough to the be able to get out and about. The Cottage was 5*, every thing you need to self-cater, if something you needed was not there Heather would go out of her way to get it for you. We arrived quite later at 9pm and Heather had gone out of her way to do a starter shop and even prepare a chicken salad for us, there was also a welcome bag which was a really lovely touch. These little thing are what made the stay perfect and outstanding. The location offers breathtaking views over looking the sea, with its own terrace for eating and relaxing, having breakfast in the warm sun with a light breeze looking out over the view was just fantastic. Don't take my word for it come and experience it for your self, you will not be disappointed. My final point is its value for money, you are paying 3* price for 5* accommodation. Thank you Heather +2.
Holiday in a beautiful house on a fantastic place
Very well, great rent, Charming Owner. PERFECT. Pierre et Gilles
Perfect Hosts and Lovely Views
We have just returned from our second three week visit to this idyillic cottage with its kind, thoughtful and attentive owners ready at hand with helpful advice. The new addition of a glazed patio extension (on both properties) enabled us to maximise the Spring sunshine and the all round superb coastal views. The property gives easy access to delightful locations such as Jardim do Mar and Rabacal but equally is a good base in a quiet area giving ready access to all areas of the island. We have already booked again for a third visit to enjoy the varied island scenery and walks.
On arrival we were greeted by Heather & her family. We were given a full tour & explanation of the property which was clean & very well appointed, they arranged a local taxi who proved invaluable taking us to local restaurants. We highly recommend Chico at prazeres Calheta. Overall the holiday was like a home from home.Do check out heathers garden, it takes re-cycling to a whole new level.
A real home away from home!
We stayed for 10 days in Rosemary Cottage. A lovely house, on the in- and outside, very comfortable and clean, on a nice and quiet location with a wonderful view. Heather, Ken and Fay made us feel very welcome.
The cottage is a good place to explore the beautiful island of Madeira but also a good place to have a relaxing day on your terras or near the pool.
We say: go, see and experience Rosemary Cottage for yourself!
