This hotel really lives up to its beautiful pictures - everything was new and spotless clean, wonderful peaceful surroundings for holidays. It offers a pool and roof terrace with views over the sea (waaay below), a fire and big common room inside. Breakfast is served at one big table (which doesn't have space for all rooms at once, but that... More

A unique hotel! The location on the Western side of Madeira Island is special, high above the Sea at 700 m! The room we had was very large (about 40 m2) with unrestricted view over the Sea. Communication with the owner during reservation was easy, and the staff was friendly, proficient and always helpful. The hotel is about 8 years... More

We stayed here for one week. The hotel is very nice. Right above the little town faja de ovelha about 700m above the sea. The personal was very nice. Every morning, we had breakfast with many other hotel guests. THW man disadvantage is that the hotel is in the nowhere. You need definitly a car to get to a restaurant... More

This is a really nice hotel. It has 9 quite modern rooms and is a very good choice for the west end area of madeira. This is not a touristic place but very modern and silent. The infinity pool is small but really refreshing and nicely made. Note, that breakfast ist served in the little kitchen of the house, so... More

We first visited this house 5 years ago and can say that it has been very well looked after since that time. The staff are great and provide a lovely breakfast and the rooms are cleaned everyday. The architecture of the hotel is very interesting with spiral staircases, glass walls and lots of interesting little terraces. There is a small... More

Friendly and extremely helpful staff. Stunning views. Beautiful and very clean room. Amazing breakfast. Garage available. A great place to stay. Incredibly steep and narrow road to get there. If you are not an experienced driver or your car is not powerful enough it can be difficult to get out....as it was for us. Unfortunately we had a bad night... More

We spend 9 days in february in colina faja, first of all print a map otherwise it is difficult to find and at the end of a very steep street. The hotel itself is in good shape, modern glass elements mixed with traditional architecture, guests share a living area with a pool table, comfortable chairs and a wood fire, they... More

My friend and I spent one night at Colina da Faja during our holidays at Madeira. The owner is very nice and it was a warm und uncomplicated welcome. The little hotel is situated on top of a hill with a gorgeous view over the sea. It has also a heated swimmingpool and you feel nearly taking a bath in... More

We stayed at the Colina da Faja for 4 nights. The room was very spacious, with a modern bathroom which was lovely. It had stunning views from the terrace. The hotel is away from the busier parts of Madeira and right on one of the main levados. A really quiet spot - the only disturbance was a cockerel from the... More

We stayed at this hotel for 3 nights and loved every minute. It is located in a quiet Madeiran village with beautiful walks, coastal and mountain drives on the doorstep. There is a levada running through the hotel grounds. We are not big walkers, but we had a stroll along the levada about 0.5h each way - it was delightful.... More
