We had a really wonderful stay in July 2010 in Casa Calhau Grande (House Sapateiro). The place is so peaceful, charming - you can feel the good vibrations of the old stones and walls there! I can reconmend Casa Calhau Grande very much for all those, who hate faceless hotel-cubes but want to make an individual and independent holiday, where you can feel the "soul" of the country and his history - and you will meet people there, who think the same (Eva at first). Of course these are self catering homes, so there is no "Service", no Breakfast-buffet, no room service, but you have time and space to do all YOU want to do. A great experience!
BY the way: there are defenitely no problems after the storms in february 2010 in Madeira. Well, one or two tine roards are still closed (because washed away and not here) and in Monte/Funchal you can see some damages still. But this does not mean any problems for visitors!!!
