Our stay in this sweet little budget cottage has been great pleasure! We enjoyed the view over the rural areas of Calheta from the two sunny terraces very much and of course the beautiful scenery in the middle of banana and wine orchards.
As the cottage is imbedded in one of the warmest and most sunny areas of the island it makes it to a great hideaway during the winter months (in summer, too, of course!). As it is provided with basic interior fittings don't expect much decoration or comfort. But everything awaited us neat and clean and there was all we needed for alldays routine like cooking, eating, sleeping and washing. And as expected to be more in the outdoors during our holidays than inside, the less fancy stuff wasn't any matter to us.
By the way the owner is a very friendly and trustful person who helped us in every question from booking the cottage till recommendations where to eat and to go.
For this little money it's a really lovely place and is much recommended to everybody who likes to travel on a shoestring or wants to experience the real madeira island!
