We found the apartment had a lovely view with ample room, a great shower and very comfortable beds. MAaria gave us a lovely basket of regional goodies, which we ate for much of the rest of our vacation. Thanks Maria.We would recommend portable radiators for upstairs and downstairs , as it was quite chilly at night. The apartment would be better served with some basic provisions such as sugar, salt and pepper, coffee, soap and perhaps a small amount of milk. The home is high on a hill with wonderful views , but no real markets anywhere nearby, so we were sort of stuck the first night and morning. GPS does not really work in the area, so a written map would help. It is a treacherous ride to the home, if you are American, but once there, lovely. The large barking German Shepard I could not get used to, however. The town is beautiful and we did enjoy walking around, visiting the rum factory and had some good meals. Love Madeira. Thanks
We spent 10 wonderful days at "Casa do Cabeço".
You definitely need a car...Located in a remote rural mountain area, overlooking the bay, mountains and the far Atlantic horizon with breathtaking views. Within 10 Minutes you are on the Highway, in Porto da Cruz and at the seapools there.
Its a new and modern house built around the ancient walls of an old one. With simplicity, quality and good taste. It's fully equipped with everything you need or might need. Hosts are very helpful and their homegrown potatoes are of the best ever.
We will come back for sure...but maybe at a season when sun is more generous and strengthful.
