This small bungalow complex is a unique and original project which aims to emphasise the less touristy side of the island. Visitors have a chance to explore the characteristics which still preserve Madeira's uniqueness and authenticity - the high mountains and the deep blue sea. This rural tourism resort, classified as 'Casas de Campo' (country house), has been established within the grounds of a private farm, in perfect harmony with nature. There is parking available for those arriving by car.
This complex is situated in the village of Santo da Serra, and is the perfect base from which to launch into a real exploration of the island and all the different activities it offers. It is 600 m from the nearest links to the public transport network and the closest shop is the small greengrocer's in the centre of the village about 1 km away. Guests will also find the nearest restaurants and bars 1 km from this establishment and it is 10 km to Santa Cruz. The complex lies just 7 minutes away from Madeira International Airport.
The accommodation is comprised of 'stilt cabins' (referred to as bungalows or mountain shelters), with a woody, rustic feel. They all feature simple decor and come with a basic kitchenette and a compact bathroom with a small shower. They are all furnished in natural colours and have pine walls and floors. These 'cabins' are a cross between a shed, a mountain lodge and a tree house and have steep steps leading up to the bedrooms. The accommodation offers a double bed and is equipped with a TV, a fridge, individually adjustable heating and either a balcony or a terrace.
Golf enthusiasts can play a round at Santo da Serra Golf, which is just a 10-minute drive from the complex.
Guests arriving by plane should follow the road towards Funchal on leaving the airport. After 500 m, take the exit on the right that indicates Santo da Serra Golf Course. Follow the signs until reaching the entrance to the golf course. Continue, and the road will lead to the village of Santo da Serra. Pass the church and take the first left, where there is a sign showing a picture of a cow. After a slight descent there is a fork on the road - turn left and drive until the establishment comes into view, right after crossing a small stone bridge. Go around the grounds to reach the parking entrance.
There is no reception at this property, guests should advise of the estimated arrival time.
