    How to get there
    Airport: Funchal: 34.2 mi
    Distance from Funcal: 30 minutes

    Directions from Funchal or Funchal Airport:
    Follow the motorway towards Ribeira Brava. At Riveira Brava keep on the motorway going past Ponta do Sol, Madalena do Mar. Do not turn off to Arco da Calheta or to Calheta. Here you go straight over the roundabout after the tunnel towards Prazeres. After a short while, you will get a roundabout where you take the turn off to Jardim do Mar.

    Just after the chemist, take the first right (steep uphill) (Caminho Girao de Ca). Continue straight up, crossing a brigde. You will pass a road to the left and a small water point on your left. The stable is the first house on the left.

An old stable building, beautifully restored, very neat and tidy. Lovely balcony from the main bedroom, with extensive views across the bay out to sea. We visited in April when it was still rather cold in the mornings. This meant we could not open the doors to look at the view, as strangely enough, all the glass in the doors... more

We are a couple in their 50's who like walking and being in a more rural area. When we arrived at 'The Stables' we were amazed at how big it was - the pictures don't do it justice. It was all very high spec inside with solid wooden floors upstairs and high wooden pitched roof to the two huge bedrooms.... more

Management response:

Thank you for the kind words. It is written that you can sit in bed and watch the nice view. It is not so easy to see the nice view from the bed, really :) But from the terrace/balcony or even the bedroom window it is possible! more
