Great place for holidays, breathtaking view!

  • 5 of 5

We stayed at Garry's house for a week and just loved the place all the time. The house is in a quiet part of Arco da Calheta/Loreto and offers everything you need, it is clean and cozy, the kitchen is well equiped, there is a place for barbecue, too. All in all the property offers enough space for a comfortable stay for up to 4-5 guests (two bedrooms). Our favourite place was the terrace and the pool, where you can stay for hours and enjoy the sunshine and the breathtaking view. Supermarket and restaurant within 10 mins. walking distance from the house, for other destinations a car is a must have. Garry was a very helpfull host, the key disposal was arranged in a place which was easy to be found and from there on everything went very smooth. We can only recommend to make a booking in this property and sure we will return some day, as we enjoyed our stay a lot.

Thank you, dear Garry and best regards,

Larissa & Rafael

Terriffic view, great pool, nice house

  • 5 of 5

We stayed 8 nights i april in this place and we really loved it.

The house is up on a steep mountain (ok- just as everything on Madeira) and it seems situated right at the edge of a cliff (optical illusion).

The view is breathtaking, a lot of glass used to enjoy the sight.

We loved the large windows in the bedroom. We loved the balcony with a roof to dry towels on.

We loved the warm pool (certainly worth the money!) and that it is surrounded by glass, so you both have the view and the windshild. It does get cooler up there and we could have wished for more blankets in the first nights, as we did not want to start the electric radiators at night.

In summer it must be a relief and fantastic with the temperature at this altitude, in april is was nearly too chilly and often cloudy.

The pool and garden are really luxury and we enjoyed also in april nice hours out there.

Besides of the work noise from remodelling the neighboring ground, it was perfectly private and very quiet, while in a rural township. At night we could hear the frogs and in the mornings the birds. A perfect sky of stars at night, (if there were no clouds). Very charming the levada in the garden, which at times is flowing, at others dry.

It is very close to popular hiking areas (Rabacal) and Calheta (the only sandy beach bigger than one towel) is close by. We very also surprised how fast we could drive to Funchal.

The house is newly renovated, smaller and rather simple but very functional and aimed at the view. I would say that the price fits and the description was fine. It is not a 5 -star luxury house(which we did not want to pay for - they could be found), but anyhow a dream.

We were 2 adults and 3 children, that worked out fine.

The car parks nicely under a roof at the side entrance, which was great in rainweather and surely must be nice in summerheat.

There is a great outdoor barbeque fireplace, which we enjoyed.

Only 2 details, which we regarded not so good: the downstairs toilet has no ventilation, other than opening the door to the livingroom....

The shower cabin (there is one shower) is absolutely not suitable for pregnant or big people. Although only normal height (175cm) and moderate overweight middle-european, I could just barely squeeze myself through the door opening into the cabin. So if you are obese, you will not be able to take a shower :-)

If we ever come to Madeira again, we would come later into the year and stay here again and advise friends to, too!

Stunning views from a lovely villa

  • 4 of 5

Some lovely touches in the villa ,made it very comfortable and home from home . Tiny criticisms --- could have done with a couple of side tables by the sofas for drinks and there only seemed to be one gas hob that would light with the sparker ,had to use matches . Otherwise a lovely holiday home with stupendous views ,

. The welcome pack and wine provided by Roseanne were a nice touch .

Es war alles wie beschrieben und die Bilder entsprechen der Realität vor Ort

  • 4 of 5

Für einen 2 wöchigen Urlaub der ideale Ort um zwischen den Wandertagen auch Erholung zu finden und es sich gut gehen zu lassen. Der Pool ist erste Klasse und die Aussicht sensationell. Garry ist absolut zuverlässig und sehr freundlich. Das italienische Restaurant im Ort ist sehr gut. Wegen der teilweise sehr steilen Straßen und engen Kurven sollte man gut Auto fahren können. Wir waren von der Unterkunft begeistert.

Huis met fantastisch uitzicht

  • 4 of 5

Het huis ligt hoog op een heuvel en heeft een fantastisch uitzicht.

We hebben een fijne tijd gehad in het huis op Madeira.

Puntje van kritiek:

De douchebak is niet heel erg groot en is aan vervanging toe.

Helaas hadden de ligbedden bij het zwembad geen kussens.

Verder was het huis comfortabel.

The villa has a fantastic cliff edge pool 10 meters by 5 meters and has absolutely stunning views with a newly landscaped garden. It is located in the picturesque and quiet village of Loreto with local amenities. a few minutes drive up the hill will lead you and loved oes to a pristine forest area and then to the amazing Paul da serra ridge with a rare canyon below which resembles if u put your imagination to workthe grand canyon in the USA... There is a nice possible walk to Rabacal with its small waterfalls. Eight minute drive to the golden beach and marina at calheta with bars and restaurants and large supermarket. There is a smaller supermarket called Amanhecer within walking distance. Thirty minute drive to Funchal with many bars, restaurants, beautiful board walks, botanical gardens and many more things to do and see. Ten minute drive to Ponto do Sol, beautiful fishing village and fifteen minutes drive to Ribeira Brava with plenty of shops and restaurants. Forty five minute drive to airport along the Atlantic coast. Your chance to see the real Madeira with lush green valleys, peaceful forests, majestic mountains and peaks shrouded in clouds. Also 42 inch plasma with satellite with 200 channels to choose from. Free high speed Wi-Fi, 24GB. Heated pool is an optional extra if you require a heated pool it is 75 euros per week(which hardly covers the cost...)

Before your actual arrival to Madeira a meeting point will be coordinated so you will be able to arrive to the house without any difficulty... ENJOY MADEIRA
