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.
As a guest you can rent a Smart forfour from the owner for the said period, the transfer from/to the airport to the holiday property is included in the car rental. Of course only the transfers can be booked, too.

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.

    “The house has everything you need. (Only a garlic press I would have liked ;-)) Fun aside, we were desirelessly satisfied. The kitchen was equipped with almost (every) necessary detail, the shower could be used with the door open and had so while showering a breathtaking view of the Atlantic Ocean. In addition to the great washing machine were also detergent and cleaning products available. Some games (including a large chess game) and many books and guides were also included. From the lying in the top of the house living room with large bed had a great view of the sea. The existing terraces are gorgeous, so we used them both daily. The sunsets were directly observable and unbelievably beautiful. A variety of plants and flowers around the house made us feel like we were in paradise. The 180 steps to the house were good from us. The price-performance ratio was very good. We highly recommend this house and would return anytime. We rented a Smart for Four from Joachim for three weeks and can only recommend it. The car is older, but the price-performance ratio is absolutely top.” The customer review has been automatically translated from German. Back to the original language

    “Dear Joachim and Inge,

    First and foremost we would like to say a big thank you for a wonderful holiday !!!
    You are such great and honest people as you unfortunately do not meet them too often these days! We were also impressed by your relaxed style, especially Joachim - Chapeau - firstly, for your dry humor, until the end we did not know whether you were hugging us or serious;) - and secondly, for your authentic style, and of course Inge - for your loving and direct way!
    The villa / apartment was very nicely decorated, clean and well maintained, a fantastic view from the bed on the Atlantic, picturesque sunsets on the private terrace, sea as far as the eye can see and a colorful garden should be enough to enjoy a relaxing holiday! The room, bathroom and kitchen were new and renovated, the kitchen fully equipped to the coffee grinder :)
    You can start a hike directly from the house or you drive a little bit by car and explore the Inelnachbarschaft, sufficient opportunities are offered.
    We thank again Inge & Joachim, keep up the good work and see you soon!
    Greetings from Natalija and Marcel” The customer review has been automatically translated from German. Back to the original language

    “An object for individualists in breathtaking scenery - 400 meters above the mostly deep blue Atlantic. A lusciously blooming paradise ... !!! If you are looking for peace and relaxation, here he finds you ....
    For us, the location on the southwestern tip of the most beautiful part of Madeira and the weather is clearly favored over the north.

    The cottage is embedded in nature, clean and equipped with everything necessary - we did not miss anything during our six weeks ...!
    The (German) landlord is friendly and helpful and has nothing against brought pets.
    What he has created under difficult local conditions (hillside over the cliffs) deserves respect.
    Anyway, we have recovered fantastically and will gladly come back ... !!” The customer review has been automatically translated from German. Back to the original language

    “The decor is simple, but available, outdated to "grubby". The Mobliar is covered with a patina (cobwebs and light flying mold). Once we have cleaned the kitchen, also something that you do not necessarily want to do first on vacation.
    The location itself is undoubtedly gorgeous, but you just have to go down 180 steps to the house (but this is also stated in the description). Packed with suitcases, this alone is a little adventure. Once arrived, you have to fight through a grown-up entrance with cactus and as I said, all with the luggage. Here a lot is left to itself. The grounds could be well-kept (dirty towels spoil eg at the house entrance). It has a great view of the Antlantik and can recover, once you arrived. When we asked the German-speaking landlord (who himself offers hiking tours) for walks, he only pointed out to us that you could already hike here in the village. Too bad we had hoped for more input.” “The decor is simple, but available, outdated to "grubby". The Mobliar is covered with a patina (cobwebs and light flying mold).
