Getting to Colina da Fajã is a little bit of an adventure, first of all because not all navigation systems seem to be able to direct you to the address. I used two different ones and always as led to the village Fajã da Ovelha which does actually sound right. After a bit one realizes though that the B&B is... More

Upon arrival there was no one at the reception, we had to search throughout the hotel. Our "Superior" room was on 3rd floor, we had to drag up the suitcases ourselves; no elevator! The room itself was spacious but sparingly furnished, the wooden floor by the door to the French balcony full of stains, one of the windows closed badly.... More

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

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
