“a welcoming and comfortable villa in the hills above Calheta”
Reviewed 4 February 2016 for a stay in January 2016
1
person found this review helpful

We had an excellent week walking the levadas and enjoying the winter sun in verdant, lush, moutainous Madeira. Silvia's villa was an excellent base; comfortable and well equipped with a lovely view of hills and ocean well away from the bustle and high-rise time shares of Funchal. Every evening we sat on the balcony with a drink watching the dusk settle over Madeira. The apartment itself has a good kitchen, lounge and two bedrooms, and was very reasonably priced. Silvia was welcoming and friendly host.

“Lovely house and wonderful host.”
Reviewed 13 November 2015 for a stay in November 2015

Silvia really knows how to be the perfect host. The house is lovely and clean and has everything we needed. The location has a great view and it’s quiet once you get used to the rural noises. The house has parking, a car is essential and the hills are steep so consider one more powerful than our struggling Fiat 500. The TV has some English channels and the Wifi is great. The beds are firm with lots of spare blankets and lovely memory foam pillows. There was always hot water and the shower is lovely and powerful. The house is bright and well designed, decorated and has a lovely feel to it. You can even sit on the roof terrace or the balcony.
Silvia made everything easy. She was great with the booking and directions. She sent me pictures on Whatsapp of a landmark so I knew which petrol station to meet her at and guided us to the house as it was dark and I was worried that I wouldn’t find it. She made us feel able to ask any questions and provided a heater which we only needed a couple of times but it was reassuring to have it. It is the extra little things that make the difference on holiday and Silvia provided them. Extra towels, plenty of toilet roll, soap, washing up liquid, coffee filters, coffee, sugar etc and knowing Silvia was just a text away.
We enjoyed it so much we have booked again in May :-) Thanks for a lovely stay. x

“A lovely place to stay with all your needs and pleasant surroundings.”
Reviewed 9 January 2015 for a stay in December 2014

The owner is very welcoming and helps you feel at home. The house has an excellent view of the ocean for fans of good photos and is a relatively short drive away from major tourist destinations. The accommodations themselves are also wonderful -- the house easily fit 3 people for our stay (with a car) and can fit more. Highly recommended overall!

“A wonderful surprise”
Reviewed 3 January 2015 for a stay in December 2014

The house is very spacious and clean and perfect in every way for our purposes, car touring around the island and for hiking. The location is good to leave to different directions of the island. The hostess was very pleasant and respectful of privacy.

“Perfect hiking tours in Madeira”
Reviewed 8 December 2014 for a stay in June 2013

We like the house very much. It is a nice, peaceful and quiet place to spend relaxing holidays among people of Madeira right in the middle of vegetable gardens. The house is comfortable and welcoming, with all you need to feel at home. Everything looks good and is well maintained and you get what you expect. The landlady is really nice and helpful in everything you might need or want to know. The house is not in the middle of the village but you have nearly everything you could possibly need or want nearby as there were an internetcafe with free wifi and very reasonable prices, supermarket (Pingo doce), Calheta sandy beach, restaurantes & bars, marina - approximately 5 to 10 minutes away (car is essential because of the steep roads and distances).
The place is especially ideal for starting hiking tours as there were several levadas an other places easily to reach by car like 25 Fontes, Risco, Fanal (Laurisilva of Madeira, an UNESCO World Heritage), Rabacal, Paul da serra, Nova an many more! The famous Levada Santana, Caldeirao Verde/ Inferno, Funchal Pico Ruivo can be reached via express road and tunnels.
