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.

    “Nice, cozy cottage. Personally and lovingly designed. Located directly on the hillside. Ideal for a relaxed break for two. Fantastic view over the sea to the southwest. What we expected was available. We were able to prepare everything we wanted in the kitchen. An experience is the shower with open door overlooking the Atlantic. The steps to the house are easy to handle and in the morning a good start for the upcoming hike. We did not miss a TV. Good starting point for our hikes.” The customer review has been automatically translated from German. Back to the original language

    “We spent a week of our 2-week vacation in the house and felt very comfortable there. The house is an absolute dream if you (like us) seeks peace and direct contact with nature. The climate in January is a bit rougher and cooler than in Funchal, but you can see fantastic rainbows from time to time (due to the humidity in the clouds passing above). You have an unobstructed view of the cliffs, meadows, flowers and the infinite ocean , The house is very lovingly decorated and has everything you need to relax and recharge! Joachim is very dedicated and always ready to help when needed (eg for luggage transport). Otherwise you can be in the house all to yourself, you actually only hear the sea in the distance and birdsong. At night you can watch the starry sky from the bed - a dream! The photos are absolutely not overdone!
    The staircase to the house already described by others is really a challenge in the beginning, we took it sporty and coped with it better from day to day. It's a good workout for all the other trails in Madeira, because you always have to go up or down somewhere!
    Also the 2nd still completely new object on Joachims area is highly recommended!
    We'll be back for sure!” The customer review has been automatically translated from German. Back to the original language

    “This holiday home is situated in a beautiful location. Several seats, beautiful terrace, cottage is well equipped with everything, kitchen well equipped. The stairs down (to get to the location) were not a problem for us, but you really have to walk well because otherwise this is not recommended. Very quiet location, we found this delicious. Bedroom upstairs spacious, wonderful wake up with a beautiful view (perhaps an idea to hang something of thin curtains which gives a more privacy idea). In short, we had a wonderful holiday in a beautiful place!” The customer review has been automatically translated from Dutch. Back to the original language

    “The pictures do not promise too much, it is a small paradise for anyone seeking peace and relaxation; With wonderful views of the sea, flowers everywhere and bright spacious living room, when 's weather gets a little damper. Everything you need for a one-week stay is available from the washing machine to the blender, books, flashlights, internet connection, hiking maps etc.

    The stairs to the house are not without, but on this steep craggy island you either live directly at the street or have some different heights. The German-speaking host lives nearby, is open, helpful and always accessible. One is, however, quite landscape and landscape. Five stars for this wonderful, unfortunately too short holiday.” The customer review has been automatically translated from German. Back to the original language

    “Until now the object was unfortunately only as a vacation apartment at Atraveo / seems to be changed however now. We were in February 2 weeks there and were received by him very attentive and caring. At first we thought that we were almost the first guests in his domicile, so normal, prudent and authentic.

    Peace, nature (garden) and views are fantastic. Small drops of vermouth are the fact that virtually all the rooms of the house can only be walked in from the outside and the 180 steps are not only to be handled on arrival and departure. (Since it is already important to forget nothing in the car at the top of the road). But that is whining at a high level ...
    Better still the tip, not even begin with cat feeding = very quickly very many. At any rate very admirable, with what dedication, patience, meticulousness and financial commitment Joachim here conjures with the years a small or large paradise. A real freak and yet a loving and open person. We would love to come back and want to try it with our two dog names. Oh yes: description and photos of Joachim are still significantly understated = a dream !!!” The customer review has been automatically translated from German. Back to the original language
