Marvelous place and hospital staff!

  • 5 of 5

A beautiful villa with a marvelous view!

Arriving late at night, we had some problems finding the house, but the sweet staff came to our rescue and met us in the nearby village, and escorted us first to the supermarket and then to the villa. Althrough out or stay they were so friendly, and fast to help us with any needs! They brought a delicious traditional Christmas bread, and helped us out with planning our trip.

The house is absolutely beautiful, very spacious and well equipped, the only downside was that it was very cold during our stay, and since the house has no heat, it was a cold first night, however the staff had put out some Madeira wine and cake to warm us this cold night. There was also plug in heaters, and the fireplace gave good warmth.

Overall a lovely vacation spot, and we would definitely recommend this house to anyone vacationing in Madeira!

A perfect place in a wonderful island

  • 5 of 5

Thanks a lot for letting us stay in your home. The villa is absolutely perfect for our needs. Plenty of space, everything fresh and stylish. We loved the pool, the barbecue, the fireplace and the fully equiped kitchen. A cup of coffee on the patio in the early morning watching miles and miles of the atlantic far below is true life quality :)

Wifi worked fast and smooth with no problems. The welcoming and service from the staff on place was fast and flexible. We have nothing but good things to say about the villa. We will be back in the future and rent the villa again,

The villa gets the best rating we can give and we can truly recommend it to other visitors in Madeira

Unsere Erwartungen wurden mehr als erfüllt.

Die freundliche Kontaktaufnahme von Frau Merkel mit vielen Tipps,

die Villa in perfekter Lage, Ausstattung und Zustand.

Danke an Jorge und seiner Frau für die nette Betreuung vor Ort.

Owner's Response: Liebe Gäste, ich glaube nach unserem Gespräch, dass Sie unbedingt noch einmal wiederkommen sollten um die gesamte Vielfalt der Insel zu erleben. Dann ist auch Zeit, um die Nordseite noch kennenzulernen. Es freut mich aber, dass Sie ein tolles Familientreffen hatten und mit Ihren Lieben eine so schöne Zeit verbringen konnten. Ihre Grüße werde ich Jorge und seiner Frau ausrichten! Hoffentlich bis bald ate logo Jessica und das Team Dear guests, after our conversation I also had the impression that you should come back to see the variety of the island. You will have time to see the Northern Part of the island... I am happy to hear from you that you had such a nice "family-get-togheter" . I will send Jorge and his wife your greetings! Hopefully see you soon again ate logo Jessica and the team

Superschöne Villa mit fantastischem Ausblick

  • 5 of 5

Als Reisende mit Erfahrung waren wir total begeistert von der Lage, Ausstattung und Sauberkeit der Villa. Eine geschmackvolle, hochwertige und moderne Einrichtung mit topausgestatteter Küche trugen wesentlich dazu bei, dass wir einen wunderschönen Urlaub auf Madeira verbracht haben. Die Terrasse mit zwei Sitzgruppen und Blick auf den Atlantik sowie große Teile des Ortes Calheta (besonders schön in der Dunkelheit) rundeten das Wohlfühlambiente ab.

Außergewöhnlich positiv empfanden wir auch die zahlreichen guten Tipps von Frau Merkel vor der Reise sowie die äußerst angenehme und hilfreiche Betreuung durch Jorge vor Ort. Vielen Dank hierfür.

Wir haben den Aufenthalt in vollen Zügen genossen und werden den Blick auf den Pool mit Atlantik so schnell nicht vergessen.

Wir können diese Villa für einen wunderschönen Urlaub auf Madeira nur jedem empfehlen. Bei einem möglichen nochmaligem Urlaub auf Madeira werden wir sicherlich versuchen, die Villa erneut zu buchen.

Es ist wirklich so schön!

  • 5 of 5

Ein wunderbares Ferienhaus mit einer hervorragenden Reisevorbereitung durch die Vermieterin und angenehmem Service vor Ort! Ausstattung und Zustand sind top. Der eigene Pool ist wirklicher Luxus vor und nach den Ausflügen und Wanderungen quer über die Insel. Calheta empfanden wir dabei als optimalen Standort. Der sonntäglicher Erzeugermarkt in Prazeres ist eine Fundgrube für bestes Obst, Gemüse und ein paar andere Genüsse. Ein herrlicher Urlaub- Vielen Dank!

Owner's Response: Liebe Gäste, wir freuen uns sehr, dass Sie und die Kinder den Urlaub geniessen konnten. Prazeres ist wirklich ein besonders schöner Ort und sollte immer erkundet werden. Frisches Gemüse ... Mangos und Avocados sowie exotische Blumen kann man auf dem Bauernmarkt gut zu fairen Preisen kaufen. Auf ein hoffentlich baldiges Wiedersehen ihr 17 Grad West Team!

Ein Traum!

  • 5 of 5

Wir haben uns trotz Feuer und Soundcheck sehr, sehr wohl in der Villa gefühlt. Wir waren mit unseren 3 Kindern im August 2016 auf Madeira. Im Vorwege haben wir lange nach einem schönen Haus gesucht und wurden nicht enttäuscht. Die Villa ist ein Traum! Besonders hervorzuheben ist die wunderschöne Aussicht. Wir konnten uns gar nicht sattsehen! Auf der Terrasse findet man immer einen schattigen Platz und die Stühle sind total bequem. Die Küche ist bestens ausgestattet. Es gibt sogar eine elektrische Saftpresse und das Highlight ist der Eiswürfel-spuckende Kühlschrank! Unser Sohn hat ausgiebig mit dem hauseigenen Playmobil gespielt!

Unser Madeira-Urlaub begann schon bei der Buchung. Vielen Dank für die tolle persönliche Betreuung, die vielen Tipps und die vor Ort Betreuung durch Jorge und seine Frau! So toll sind wir bisher noch nie betreut worden.

Madeira ist auf jeden Fall eine Reise wert. Wir haben wunderschöne Wanderungen gemacht. Sehr zu empfehlen ist Caldeirao Verde!

Wir können die Villa uneingeschränkt weiterempfehlen! Am liebsten hätten wir sie gar nicht verlassen!

Liebe Grüße

Karen H. und Familie

Car: recommended

The (registered and licensed) Villa 17 degrees west is located in a prime location in the vineyard just 5 minutes from the beach.

The spacious pool villa is da Calheta just 25 km from Funchal, in the picturesque wine town of Estreito.

This western part of Madeira is one of the sunniest parts of the island. Just minutes away from the house, you can discover the mountain world with which UNESCO protected laurel forests on your tours.

Walking past hydrangeas and the spherical white and blue agapanthus flowers and discover the Levadatouren small waterfalls.

The neighboring towns of Prazeres and Jardim do Mar is only 5 minutes away by car. Calheta is the ideal starting point for beautiful car trips around the island or for the many Levada walks that often start in the west of the island.

Everything is 'around the corner'

Fresh bread and food you get in a typical small shops with Cafe below the house.

More mini companies as a hairdresser or quaint bars are within walking distance. You are in the heart of Madeira and experience no major tourism in Calheta. In green lawns embedded, there is a very nice playground.

In just 5 minutes drive in a very well-stocked supermarket on the beach and get there fresh fish, fruit, vegetables lots of breads etc. The Modern Art Museum 'Casa das Mudas' offering spectacular views of the harbor and the bipartite Calheta beach. One can well from one side to the other swimming beach side in a calm sea.

In Calheta Hotel on the weekend often hosts live music. Frequently buffet with changing themes offered.

In Prazeres 5-minute drive from the house, you can stock up on Sunday at the farmers market with fresh vegetables and fruits and drink with a mini Zoo Cafe in a beautiful tropical garden (Quinta Paedagogica). Porto Moniz with the famous natural swimming pools and good seafood restaurants you can easily connect to an island tour by driving in Prazeres over the mountain toward Rabacal.

There you can enjoy spectacular views of the volcanic green landscape and the natural pools. Rabacal offers a well-known hiking trail. The way back to Calheta may cause the lighthouse with its views of the spectacular rocky landscape and end z. B. in Jardim do Mar. Drink there a Portuguese Galao in the Bar O Portinho (and try the sandwiches and mussels) on the seafront or a freshly squeezed juice in the city center in the local bar 'Joe's Bar' with an enchanted backyard.

Pure nature:

Who has observed dolphins and whales with the large 17 ° West binoculars from the terrace of the villa, can also take a boat tour z. B. with the Lobosonda, the restored and TV known whale and dolphin watching boat book in Calheta on the beach.

The natural world is unique and the view from the water to the many waterfalls and the interesting coastline unique.

Festivals throughout the year:

In Madeira there is a possibility, still deeply immersed in old village traditions. Easter is a great experience and other festivals are often around and take in the town centers.

Take the Flower Festival, Easter Festival, the carnival, the Atlantic Festival in Funchal, the olives, wine or lemon hard part? You should do it. These festivals are easily breathed beautifully and not touristy but tradition.

Trip to Funchal:

New Year and Christmas, z. B. worth making a detour from Calheta to Funchal. The choice of festivals is great and always a special experience. The New Year's Eve fireworks display is world famous and is one of the most beautiful fireworks in the world. Full Funchal shines from November in bright gloss and in the street cafes, people sit up late at night with pleasant temperatures.

In the summer months you can visit the great Atlantic Festival in Funchal and also here experienced spectacular fireworks. On the last night will start the great final fireworks.

Of course, part of a visit to Funchal times a visit to the world famous Reid's Hotel in the already resided the Empress Sissi and Winston Churchill. The 'Reid's Tea Time' is a must under Teefreunden. Reserve before please long and simply enjoy the view of the wonderful terrace overlooking the sea.
