“Very nice cottage in the hills of Madeira - incuding ocean view”
Reviewed 19 October 2015 for a stay in October 2015

We were lucky to spend one week in Filipe's beautiful cottage "Hortensia". The houses have been renovated only two years ago and are in perfect condition. The whole quinta is situated close to the town Camacha up in the hills just next to Funchal. The whole place is very quiet, and nicely situated with a splendid view to the Atlantic Ocean.
You can reach a supermarket in 10 walking minutes, some smaller restaurants are also located nearby. The cottage has it's own private garden with sunchairs, parasol and garden table. The cottage itself is divided into a big livingroom &kitchen (very new cooker, fridge and yes: dishwasher !), a bedroom for two and a bathroom with bathtub/shower.
The overall appearance is very well-maintained. A very friendly maid is cleaning up every 2nd day of your stay. The livingroom is equipped with two big sofas and a very modern LCD-screen (internet access) and there is free WIFI.
All modalities were very easy. The communication in advance and during our stay worked very well: Filipe's English is very fluent and he replies to mails very quickly.

We would always recommend the cottage to our friends and would return.

“Lovely place in beautiful gardens”
Reviewed 17 April 2015 for a stay in April 2015

The cottage is lovely and is set in wonderful gardens that were full of flowers when we visited. We have a 2.5 year old and he loved visiting the chickens every day and exploring the garden. There's a supermarket and restaurants just up the road and its a short car ride from Funchal. My husband is in a wheelchair (paraplegic) and he found it entirely accessible, although he needed some help up the steeper parts of the garden. Very friendly owners. We highly recommend it.

“We spent a wonderful week at Casa das Hortenses in Quinta das Faias”

The house is located in Camacha, just 15 min drive to Funchal and a short walk from a big supermarket, a takeway and several local restaurants. The house is very spacious and comfortable with two large bedrooms and is well equipped. The central heating and the wood burner are great for the cooler mountain nights. The house is very private with its own small garden but you are free to enjoy the extensive and beautiful grounds of the quinta; our 4 year old loved to run around the gardens and feed the chickens and geese. We had a very warm welcome from the owners, fresh home baked bread and homemade jam when we arrived and fresh eggs from their chickens in the mornings. Filipe was extremely helpful giving suggestions for walks, places to visit and tips on the weather (very important in Madeira where the weather can be completely different in different parts of the island). We had a lovely time and would definitely stay there again!
