Astounding Hospitality

  • 5 of 5

This was our first visit to Madeira so we had no idea of locations or properties. Both the island and the Woodlovers property were beyond every part of our imagination. Madeira is stunning and the apartment is spacious, modern but homely and comfortable,and very well equipped. The gardens and outdoor decking area give the impression of living in a villa and at the time of our visit the shared areas like grill and pool were always available. One of the owners met us on arrival with a tray of the finest Madeira wine, cake, biscuits, even sugar cane for us to try and fresh passion fruit from the garden. There is an excellent basics kit in the larder too. Did we mention the large picture windows have ocean views? To be nestled into the hillside at the back of the village this was a lovely bonus. We really have nothing negative to say at all about this stay. Arrangements are made with ease from booking to arrival with the friendly family team who speak and write very good English. We were glad to have benefited from their love for the beautiful ocean front village, sitting at the foot of high cliffs, which is Jardim do Mar and their wonderful attention to every detail that the holidaymaker might need - from darts and playing cards to laundry and plenty of clean linen. Is there any more perfect place in the world?

WoodLovers Mar

  • 5 of 5

A very warm welcome from the family on arrival. An exciting property, well equipped and exactly as described, which exceeded our expectations. The property was clean and obviously well maintained as we were only the second visitors. Much thought and care has gone into the design and construction of the property both the interior and exterior. We enjoyed the bolo do mel, the custard apples and passion fruits. Good use was made of the barbecue. The salad leaves were an unexpected and fantastic bonus. Reuben was extremely helpful and at the end of a phone for advice and recommendations. Jardim do Mar is a delightful village away from hustle and bustle. The restaurant at Prazeres next to the supermarket was good value for money with friendly service. We have no hesitation in recommending this property and, indeed, returning there ourselves.

The small village of Jardim do Mar looks out to sea at the foot of spectacular cliffs, known for its micro climate, placing the village in 1fr place of the warmer place in the whole island. There are four very different places to eat and all serve locally caught seafood and a variety of regional specialities. This tranquil unspoilt village of old stone houses and cobbled footpaths is considered to be one of the most beautiful on the island, and is visited by surfers given the fantastic wave conditions and water temperature between 18-24 degrees, puts Jardim do Mar in the mouse of surf community, nicknaming the Hawaii of Europe. The nature conditions are wonderful for snorkelling and paddling.
