Holiday residence amidst absolutely quiet nature, with fabulous views

This little gem is an oasis for every nature lover, with an incredibly quiet and peaceful atmosphere and with fabulous views. Your holiday accommodation cannot be accessed directly by car, but has an old paved path with about 180 steps leading up to it. The owner is happy to help transporting luggage. Then you can enjoy taking time out in this wonderfully secluded spot. Just eight years ago, the former residential buildings, barns stables stood abandoned on the terraced vineyards, dilapidated and overgrown with thick thorn bushes. The ruins were then rebuilt and restored carefully, with as little impact on the environment as possible, focussing on the essentials.

Your holiday accommodation on the complex was the former barn that had cows downstairs, while wine was pressed in the room next door and hay was stored above.

Now the indoor and outdoor areas exude an atmosphere of well-being and nothing and nobody will disturb you here. You can enjoy the breathtaking view towards the lighthouse in the far south-west of Madeira through the panoramic window directly from the 200 x 200cm double bed (two separate mattresses). The toilet and the bathroom are on the lower floor, accessed down outdoor stairs, with the kitchen next to it and the outdoor kitchen with a grill area. The former cow barn, a windowless room, can be used as a sleeping den (mattress 140 x 200cm).

Freshly baked bread or fresh eggs from the hens on site are available. The site also has many bushes and trees with exotic fruit, herbs and spices, as well as aloe vera plants.
On request you can rent from the owner an Opel Corsa turbo diesel with 100 PS.

Massages can be booked locally. There is a yoga mat at your disposal. The owner is happy to provide advice and information about the region and the people, or to assist with trip planning. He can also be booked for an individual guided tour to the hidden beauty of Madeira, according to the motto: simply let everything go and immerse yourself in the true Madeira with all your senses.

    “A weekend Jan./ early Feb. 2017. Who a very quiet location surrounded by nature in a little "rougher " north searches (like us) will be delighted. We were anyway.

    It's ALL in the house you need. (Right down to the extra thick cushions for bench / chairs). Highlight the house -especially in the cooler days of January - the bedroom / living room under the roof with the large sliding glass door. It has not only the bed of a great view, but the room is characterized light during the day and overcast.

    Personal note: Anyone who has spent up ever in one of these small houses with small windows in Madeira / or La Palma with a rainy morning of the evening artificial lighting will appreciate that! Otherwise we can only agree with the positive Bewerungenen our previous tenant and refer to the meaningful images.

    We would come back anytime. PS Too bad that the community the much cited herein "180-stepped path " every few meters with lanterns "plastered " has (The Keeps / one-third would have done!). This unfortunately you only get an idea of ​​how great the Madeira starry night is.” The customer review has been automatically translated from German. Back to the original language

    “The location of the house is an absolutely gorgeous. The views and tranquility make it an oasis of relaxation.

    The stairs are not as trained as us, however, already a bit of a challenge, which is to deal with, however.
    From the level of equipment, everything is there that you need, it should nevertheless a lack of something, then creates the landlord directly remedy. Class !!
    The summer kitchen with great barbecue was especially taken us, because I also like grille.
    we had a little problem with the bed, the mattresses were actually very well located but not including slatted frame, but only a rigid Holzverlattung so we had to fight for a week with back pain.
    The view from the bed is huge, but we would have liked as a darkening. For one to be able to sleep in the morning long and the other returned without darkening night of the lighthouse every 30 seconds a bright greeting ;-)
    The garden is beautiful and you can find great plants and herbs there. Unfortunately, you have it in some cases only "cut free" as they go under the so desired "natural garden" part. In our opinion, one could make much more if they would take care more about in the garden, but that is absolute matter of taste.

    Two or three words the Owner ... tip !! Always helpful and if you are lucky enough that the time has a show which of the island, you can see in half a day more of the island than other in three weeks.

    Conclusion: A fantastic holiday in an incomparable great accommodation at a very nice (and partly unreal acting island). It is actually one of the things that you should have seen in his life.
    A thanks to Joachim and Inge.” The customer review has been automatically translated from German. Back to the original language
