This old stable is beautifully refurbished and has a cool patio under the vines. The area around is mainly farmed and perfect if you would like to stay close to the beach.

The Stables is the perfect base from which to explore the island. It is spacious, comfortable and well appointed. In fact, it feels like a home from home.

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.
