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 old. It is in most parts new, just some room-related issues, not critical to visitors but somewhat bothersome, keep it from giving the 5th star.
Madeira during Spring can still be cool, especially at this altitude. We were very happy that there was central heating. A funny item is the availability of only one breakfast table: It has its advantages, as opinions flow freely about destinations, good restaurants and levadas worthwhile to visit.
If you are looking for a place to stay in Western Madeira, this place is highly recommended.
- Official Description (provided by the hotel):
- Colina da Faja is the ideal place for nature lovers and walkers who wish to discover the beauty of Madeira Island trough the "Levadas" (walking trails constructed to transport water). In front of the house, you can enjoy one of the most beautiful and long Levadas called Levada Nova. It starts on Ribeira Brava and ends in a small village after Ponta do Pargo. This small house, with 9 rooms, is situated in Faja da Ovelha, Calheta, in the south west coast of Madeira Island. This is both the sunniest and most intact side of the island. ... more less
