serene beauty

  • 5 of 5

We stayed two weeks in this beautiful house, with the great seaview. It was just what we needed: peace and quiet, the only question every day being: do we stay here, or are we going to do something? The thing being either the beach or walking one of the meny levada-walks close by, or maybe just the almost 40-minute walk to one of the restaurants in the village.

Roberto and Fiona decorated their home with pride and joy, just for us, with fresh flowers everywhere and the odd visit bringing wine and bread. The home itself is a beauty, the terrace is great.

magical place

  • 5 of 5

Had a wonderful 10 days in this beautiful property.

Wonderful views, very peaceful location and beautifully restored comfortable house where you can immediately feel 'at home'. There were beautiful wild flowers in the lanes and the garden was lovely.

Roberto is an exceptional host who made us feel very welcome and ensured we had all we needed to start our holiday.

A 20 minute walk along the old road brings you into the town, near a café/restaurant that serves very tasty and good value home cooked meals.

There is a nearby levada that you can access without needing to drive, whilst other levadas are within 30 minutes drive. So some great walks followed up by sitting on the patio with a glass of maderian wine watching the amazing sunsets! Highly recommended.

Perfect hideaway for relaxing holidays

  • 5 of 5

We stayed two wonderful weeks in this cosy and tastefully restored house enjoying, above all, spectacular views over the Atlantic Ocean.

The house and the beautiful garden are very well maintained, lovingly decorated and with all the amenities you need.

The absolute peace and quietness of the area made for a very restful atmosphere.

Thank you so much, Roberto and Fiona, for your exceptional hospitality!

Beautiful cosy home at a scenic location

  • 5 of 5

We spend one week in this old Maderian house and we were absolutely happy that we made that choice! The house still has its old rustic charme and offers all ameneties you need at the same time. It is equipped in a very personal way, there are so many details to find in every room. There is plenty of space in the yard outside as well. A large barbecue area and a big garden and vine yard belongs to the house and it is wonderful to sit outside and enjoy the view over the meadows and the ocean. When it is colder or night there is the living room to sit in with a fire place. We enjoyed the burnig fire every night.

We found the location in the very west of Madeira especially convenient to discover many places of the island. The mountains, a lot of Levadas, towns by the sea are accesibble within 20-30 minutes.

Special thanks go to the Owners Roberto and Fiona. It was a very nice and helpful contact from the beginning and everything worked out straightforward.

Many many thanks! We'll be back sometime!

The Ponta do Pargo the Parish is located in the western tip of the island. It is characterized by having beautiful views of different bays that form on steep slopes of the island sea. Is located about 350/400 meters, its most important landmark is the lighthouse dated 1922, located next to a cliff estasiante. Its population is very affable, friendly and curious, living in this extreme point of the island as such are very peaceful and are dedicated mostly to subsistence agriculture. Are mint 950 the inhabitants of this small town. From this village we can move on easily and in a short time for two bathing areas. The south beach of Calheta, yellow sand (introduced), where there is a good supermarket and some restaurants as well as an excellent marina and a whole complex that supports him. To the north, the sleepy village of Porto Moniz, with its beautiful natural pool, meticulously drawn over small rocks, which also highlights a very interesting aquarium, as well as the Living Science Centre, always with thematic exhibitions. You can also decide to move to the higher plateau of the island, the Paul da Serra, where the desperate green landscapes and numerous hiking or taken in small paths. For those who like to do different walks from the house has a number of options or the flow of the mountain, and down a beautiful path toward the ocean. If using the latter bring a bathing suit and a snack and enjoy the clear waters of the Atlantic, which will surely find a virgin environment and a quality record. It must be said that on the island there are no dangerous animals, so explore it with pleasure and safety!
