Nice cottage in the hills

  • 4 of 5

Lovely cottage in the hills near the village of Santo da Sierra. It' s on the grounds of a large quinta and surrounded by fields. It is clean and well maintained and the kitchen is well stocked too. There are several walks in the vicinity.

Owner's Response: Many thanks for your review and you are correct that there are several walks, including levada walks, near Quinta das Colmeias, as well as the PGA European Tour Golf Course and two horse riding centres. Quinta das Colmeias allows our guests to enjoy the peace and quiet and relax whilst not being isolated. Easy access to the highway network makes exploring the island easy, although the old roads are something not to miss, offering outstanding views and viewpoints on the way.

le calme et la nature

  • 4 of 5

Une maison très agréable, qui peut convenir sans problème pour 6 personnes.

A 30 mn de Funchal on se retrouve dans un environnement de petite montagne ( température agréable , voire fraiche ) et au grand calme.

La maison est grande, propre et très bien équipée.

Etant en famille c'était très confortable d'avoir 2 salles de bains ( 1 avec douche et1 avec baignoire ).

La piscine est bien là, mais finalement il ne faisait pas assez chaud quand nous y étions pour en profiter, mais cela ne nous a pas manqué.

Andrew Zino, et son père, étaient très disponibles pour organiser notre arrivée et pour nous accueillir très chaleureusement.
