Séjour Réfugio das Camelias - Madère

10/ 10

Nous avons apprécié l'accueil chaleureux et attentionné de Luisa et de ses parents. Les prestations sont de grande qualité. Merci aussi pour les fruits et les spécialités locales ! La maison est superbe, c'est un havre de paix située près de Santana et de ses commodités. Notre chambre avec sa petite cuisine nous a permis d'être indépendantes. Nous aurions aussi apprécié la petite terrasse aménagée si la météo avait été meilleure. Une autre fois, peut-être ! Un hébergement que nous recommanderons à ceux qui chercheront un lieu d'accueil sur la côte nord de Madère.

Bien : vue, la grandeur et aménagement du studio. Moyen : l'isolement. Insuffisant : présence du propriétaire, durant les 4 jours passés sur place nous avons croisé le propriétaire que lors de notre arrivée et de notre départ. Portes et fenêtres du grand bâtiment bien aménagé étaient continuellement fermées.



10/ 10

La famille qui tient la Quinta est très accueillante et très professionnelle. Nous avons un peu du mal à trouver mais c'est très rapide par la voie express lorsqu'on arrive de l'aéroport. C'est le seul endroit où nous avons vu avec une machine à laver et des étendoirs. Cela peut être très pratique. Les chambres son vraiment grandes et bien tenues. Nous avons beaucoup aimé le charme et le calme de cette maison, la possibilité de cuisiner et même de faire un barbecue et la situation pour rayonner dans pas mal d'endroits.



one week at Refugio das Camelia

Friendly and luxurious

9/ 10

Our short stay in Refúgio das Camélias was fantastic, starting with the warm welcome by family Candelaria (including a little wine tasting!). We noted fresh flowers all over the house - a really nice touch. Our room was very comfortable (wonderful beds), clean, had a little kitchenette and even a small balcony from where we could enjoy the amazing view down into the valley. The only minor thing was that there was very little hot water in the boiler - you have to hurry when taking a shower. The house also has a bigger common kitchen with everything you might need, a sheltered courtyard where you can barbecue, as well as several large living rooms with sofas and armchairs (one of them has a glass front, again allowing you to enjoy the view). At the time of our stay, we were the only guests in the house, so we almost felt like kings in our own castle. One thing to note: you will definitely need a car if you are staying here, as there is no public transportation close by. During our time on Madeira, we stayed in several Madeira Rural accommodations - all were great, but Refúgio das Camélias was the best (also the most expensive).
