Before this beautiful country hotel bay, should all be aware, that it is not a luxusobjekt is. If you bathe or're looking for party holiday, was definitely wrong here. Rather, the haus ideal conditions for those seeking peace away from the mass tourism and perfect hiking possibilities directly at the house. It is also essential, to book a rental car. Parking are enough available. The colina very good! Lovingly restored and with a beautiful sea view, the active guest with arrival a former mansion presented. In the community area is the fireplace with rattan furniture and flat screen tv, wood ... is available free of charge in the public garage nearby. On the other there was also a seating area with a pool table, and a flat screen tv. Also a toilet is available here. Great we also find the barbecue area behind the colina, which we did not use however. A total of 9 guest rooms with a balcony or a terrace, depending on the floor. Wi-fi is available free of charge, however on the top floor because of the scope is no longer available. While we were there, there were many couples of different ages.

    The 9 rooms are well appointed - bathroom with shower and heated towel rack, large closet, free safe, dielenfußboden, tv and telephone. The size of the room and the bathroom is very adequate. Superior rooms have an extra seat area and were a bit bigger. Junior suite with terrace instead of the balcony. On the top floor is still a huge room with a separate entrance and additionally with wohnlandschaft and kitchens. Each room has the name of one of Madeira local flower and is located on the sea side. The only drawback are really the hard mattresses but after two days, we got used to it. Impressive is the view from the bed to the sea! We had a french balcony door on, sun and fresh air. Wonderful!

Two sorts of bread rolls, croissants, toast, cold meats & cheese including cream cheese, tuna and sardinenpastete, four jam sorts, fresh cut fruit & vegetables, on request, several egg dishes, cereals, various yogurts, coffee & tea, juices and homemade cakes - if you didn't get full, it was their fault. Great we found the large dining table, where all the guests and a pleasant atmosphere. We are always with other guests into contact and experience exchanged. The breakfast area existing kitchen including refrigerator for own kochgelüste be used.

    The respective number of employees of the hotel were all very friendly and helpful. We had no complaints, so from our side everything to our complete satisfaction drain. English are absolutely necessary. The room cleaning was unobtrusive but perfect. And, even though we our towels gladly more frequently than once used and not on the floor, this was changed daily.

    In the outdoor area there is a large terrace with seating and umbrella, pool chairs and small but fine pool. The solar heating to the heated worked after the storm in february spotless. Two bicycles can be rented, but 1 €per hour. We highly recommend the really only sporting guests, since the colina on a hill and the driveway and paths are very steep.

    From the airport there are about 60 kilometers, that is a journey time of about an hour. The next (man made) beach is located in Calheta, about 10 kilometers away. In the town itself, due to the hillside location quite extensive, you will find a minimarket and restaurants. The bus goes from the main street, about 200 meters above the colina. Excursion destinations there are innumerable - but mostly everything only with car. We found the location perfect, as we for hiking and for exploring arrived and our expectations more than were surpassed.

The converted mansion is, what the impression the catalogue picutres gives, but in a much worse condition. We actually wanted to 2 weeks in this hotel spend, but after a week the hotel is changed. For various reasons. Us was clear, that the hotel isolated and one needs a rented car to discover the island. But, we wanted to a beautiful room, a clean pool and a decent breakfast. Unfortunately we had a very small room, although we long before prior asked one of the better room. Apparently the difference is enormous, when i read the other reviews. We had ... direct access to the terrace, the door was through putrefied and had a hole big as a fist. They didn't close properly. The pool should be heated and is as big as a double bed. When we then the lady from the service said, that a storm in february the solar panels were destroyed, the pool was heated we were very 'surprised'. We were finally in may there. And, because nobody the pool due to the temperature used, it was not cleaned. In the best case, 2 ladies with the service entrusted, so room etc. And breakfast in their room. Unfortunately the hotel was sold out and the staff absolutely overstrained. There was not time for all capacity! We were sitting at a large table, but we had in principle no problem. Sometimes you asked, whether you have egg fried or scrambled eggs to have would like. The dishes were simple but ok. The cancellation was smooth and fast. Overall the hotel you can thus in the condition not recommend it. But if we go to Madeira come, and some short stays in various hotels is this hotel %blank%. Because the location is really good for a certain part of the island to explore. Bewertung lesen

Beautiful mansion, perfect for the wanderurlaubs. Great, the stylishly equipped rooms, the sea view and the possibility, even something to cook in the open, inviting kitchen to cook. Holiday-makers, the without a car on the way are, could, in the absence of shopping in the village a bit lost his. But: i have traveled a lot, but that is one of my favorite places! The staff is also extremely friendly and helpful. Nothing to moan about - all great and very recommendable! Bewertung lesen

Small family hotel, off any tourist centers in a small village in the west of Madeira. Breakfast with everything you want (fruit, yogurt, cereal, rolls, sausage, cheese, jam, eggs), very family, because together at a large table is eaten. Rooms decorated in a traditional style, all newly renovated and clean. Small pool with great views. If you are looking for a complete service and activities in the vacation hotel was definitely wrong, but if a small family, quiet hotel is in good hands right here. Bewertung lesen

Beautiful small hotel with breathtaking views of the sea. The architecture is great, everything is modern, but in trials madeirensischen style. The rooms are great, and the bathroom was nice, modern and with a walk-in shower. Everything seemed very clean and well maintained.

    Great location with one hand impressive view of the sea, very quiet and relaxing. Furthermore, the surrounding area really nothing, absolutely nothing. Nearest supermarket only in Calheta (at the beginning of the entrance to the hotel there is only a small bar where you can buy drinks in a pinch), next restaurant in Prazeres or Paul do Mar (and he was not really exhilarating choice). We wound up moving more often during cooked hotel in the communal kitchen, because we didn't want evening long days out. Always take the ways to Madeira longer than it looks, as the streets are small, cramped and curvy. The hotel is located on 600m and, therefore, it was always about 3 -4°C cooler than down by the sea.

8 Rooms, really lovingly decorated and with much genuine wood. Wooden floors, so a bit noisy. LAN-cable in every room. We never met at the large Speisetafel more than 1-2 other couples. There is a buffet breakfast every morning. With an informal sharing of experiences on routes etc. In fact every evening there or cook your own food and drinks in the fridge. Delicious food: about 5 minutes drive at the hotel Villa Mia (in sight, but 300 meters deep!). The Levada Nova runs directly in front of the house, hike to Ponta do Pargo lighthouse 3 h. Car generally ... highly recommended to the points are as follows the hikes. The entrance to the hotel is steep streets like a lot in Madeira: with small car 1. Hallway full speed ahead and 5 meters try - no problem. The staff was always friendly and tried hard, but a bit unprofessional (occurs always in Privatkleidung; an in-depth phone call the guestrooms combine dominated not all staff; on a positive: the cordless phone we were taken to dinner, if in this time a call for us arrived.)
