The apartment is situated in the lovely, quiet village of Madalena do Mar. it is ideal for famillies or couples looking for a quiet getaway close to everything.
“We enjoyed our stay. The apartment is a good size and was very clean. The views over the sea and the banana plantation are great too. The location is not as central as Funchal but we didn't want to stay in the city so this was a positive for us. Madalena do Mar is well connected via the south coast tunnels and all the levada walks we wanted to do were in comfortable driving distance. Adriana provides a very useful booklet detailing her favourite levada walks. There are several bars and restaurants in walking distance. We didn't go to the restaurants because we are vegetarian, but the apartment's kitchen was fine for preparing all our meals. We recommend the Continente Modelo supermarket in Ribeira Brava. It's a bit further than the Amanhecer Supermercado but the selection is better and the parking is easier.”
The Perestrelo House, is situated in the small village of Madalena do Mar, in the Ponta do Sol county on the southwest coast of Madeira and is bounded to the south by the Atlantic Ocean.
“Really nice and modern villa, 200m from the sea. Best is to go swim in calheta though at 10min driving. A few restaurants in the village and a beautiful small hidden walk between the banana plantations. The weather seems to be always good in this part of the island. The place is luxurious, large bedrooms, multiple bathrooms, very big and well equipped kitchen. Amazing light from the big windows all over. Only minor thing is that the matrassen from the small room could be a bit better.”
Located at 15 meters from the beach, the seafront Aqua Sea House is in the typical fishing area of Madalena do Mar and is surrounded by the sea, banana trees and waterfalls. It is near a beautiful promenade with a stone beach.
“Sandra and Cristina went above and beyond to make our stay at the Aqua Sea House exceptional. We loved every minute of our stay. They greeted us with cookies, madeira wine, and fresh banana's when we arrived. They provided us with maps (with restaurant suggestions) and Levada guide books to use during our stay which were very helpful. Madalena do Mar was a perfect place for us to relax and explore the rest of Madeira. We would definitely stay again! Take care! Best Regards, Megan and Stephen”
