We stayed here four nights at the beginning of January 2014 and were totally charmed by the setting and ethos of Faja dos Padres. As we descended from the clifftop via the lift (operated by the ever-helpful Nelio) we felt as if we were entering a different and idyllic world . After a lovely walk through a tropical plantation, we... More

It's gorgeous, well laid out, organized and clean. The guys who helped me (Pedro and Nicholas) were friendly, prompt and even packed a picnic basket... More

We've spent quite a lot of time looking for a good place to stay in Madeira. We were looking for a ocean-front, quiet and secluded place on the island and Faja dos Padres was al this and lots more. First of all, this place really is secluded so if you're looking for a place with easy access to a store,... More
