We first visited this house 5 years ago and can say that it has been very well looked after since that time. The staff are great and provide a lovely breakfast and the rooms are cleaned everyday. The architecture of the hotel is very interesting with spiral staircases, glass walls and lots of interesting little terraces. There is a small...

Friendly and extremely helpful staff. Stunning views. Beautiful and very clean room. Amazing breakfast. Garage available. A great place to stay. Incredibly steep and narrow road to get there. If you are not an experienced driver or your car is not powerful enough it can be difficult to get out....as it was for us. Unfortunately we had a bad night...

My friend and I spent one night at Colina da Faja during our holidays at Madeira. The owner is very nice and it was a warm und uncomplicated welcome. The little hotel is situated on top of a hill with a gorgeous view over the sea. It has also a heated swimmingpool and you feel nearly taking a bath in...

We stayed at the Colina da Faja for 4 nights. The room was very spacious, with a modern bathroom which was lovely. It had stunning views from the terrace. The hotel is away from the busier parts of Madeira and right on one of the main levados. A really quiet spot - the only disturbance was a cockerel from the...

We stayed at this hotel for 3 nights and loved every minute. It is located in a quiet Madeiran village with beautiful walks, coastal and mountain drives on the doorstep. There is a levada running through the hotel grounds. We are not big walkers, but we had a stroll along the levada about 0.5h each way - it was delightful....

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
Colina da Faja is the ideal place for nature lovers and walkers who wish to discover the beauty of Madeira Island trough the "Levadas" (walking trails constructed to transport water). In front of the house, you can enjoy one of the most beautiful and long Levadas called Levada Nova. It starts on Ribeira Brava and ends in a small village after Ponta do Pargo. This small house, with 9 rooms, is situated in Faja da Ovelha, Calheta, in the south west coast of Madeira Island. This is both the sunniest and most intact side of the island. ... more   less

“The Levada Nova flows through the property, try it out towards the West. Perhaps the part from Pedregal to the end is the nicest (about 7 km). Another interesting area is the Levada do Janela - but follow it only during the first hour (to the third table). Thereafter, the abyss to the side is extremely steep. It's not really getting nicer either, as the valley narrows and view perspectives get smaller.”
