Great holiday in a stunning location
The house was perfect for a family holiday and Rui was a great host.
Thank´s Jan for your kind and sincere words about your experience in "Casa do João da Eira". See you next time.
Absolutely stunning property in an ideal picturesque location. The photos do not do this property justice - it's even nicer than what you are expecting. Rui could not have been more helpful and the basket of local goodies was much appreciated. We even cooked dinner two evenings on the open fire outside. We will certainly be back in Madeira in the future.
Thanks Debbie for your kind and sincere words about Seixal and "Casa do João da Eira".
I have Seixal always on my hart. The mix between the sea and the mountains in Seixal is really amazing.
See you next time in Madeira Island.
We did not want to come home - absolutely delightful.
Beautiful views, convenient location and easy parking, wonderful considerate host, friendly neighbours, well equipped kitchen, clean and comfortable furnishings - we had a great break. Thank you!
Thanks Mica for your kind and sincere words about Seixal and your stay in "Casa do João da Eira". Seixal is really an amazing place to visit, rest and stay for a while. See you next time.
Casa do João da Eira was hands down the best vacation home experience I've had. Rui met us at check in to greet us and show us the property. It was well-cleaned and everything had been thought of--fresh handsoap in every bathroom, towels, outdoor fireplace prepped, and a bottle of Madeira wine and a bolo de mel cake for us.
The property is amazing. It was cozy for just two of us, but would easily accommodate 8 people. The water heater is even tankless, so nobody gets a cold shower. Every floor of the house has a view--the beds in the attic are the only ones you can't see the sunrise from without getting out of bed. The ground floor has the kitchen and a generous living room, as well as a half bathroom. The ground floor terrace has several tables and chairs to use while cooking on the outdoor fireplace--not to mention the gorgeous view. And, yes, you really can see a waterfall through the kitchen window while sitting at the table. Upstairs there are 3 bedrooms and two full bathrooms. The master bedroom has a balcony with an even better view than downstairs...and two cozy chairs and a light to enjoy at any time of day or night. The attic has twin beds and a slightly separated snug area with couch & tv.
Rui was incredibly responsive, giving us great restaurant recommendations and making sure we had everything we needed. He was very welcoming & friendly, and his daughter, who helped check us in, was as well. The town of Seixal is beautiful and has a beach as well as tidepools to swim in--we were there in January so didn't go swimming, but even then the water was warm.
If you're looking for a beautiful, relaxing vacation stay, I can't recommend this place enough. We're already hoping to return!
Thanks Sarah for your kind and sincere words about Seixal and your stay in "Casa do João da Eira". Seixal is really an amazing place to visit and stay for a while.
See you next time.
We loved this property. Rui met us there with a bottle of Portuguese wine and a warm loaf of
bread. The house is lovely and had everything we needed. It is a peaceful setting with a world
class view. There were 5 of us and we all want to go back again. If we could give more than
5 stars we would.
Thanks for your kind and sincere words about, Seixal and "Casa do João da Eira".
I hope you return soon.
Absolutely fantastic cottage in Seixal
Fantastic place to spend family holidays. Quiet and peaceful Seixal offers great views, beach, two local restaurants and a natural swimming pool. Cottage is clean, well equipped and very friendly owner is always willing to help and provide information. Seixal is also a great place to explore the island, only 10 minutes from Porto Moniz and 45 minutes from Funchal.
Thank's Bart for your kind and sincere words about, Seixal and "Casa do João da Eira". See you next time.
Old cottage, original building from the XIX century, recently reconstructed and adapted for rural tourism by the actual owner, located on the North coast of Madeira Island, in the center of the charming village of Seixal, 35 minutes from Funchal.
Belonging to the municipality of Porto Moniz, Seixal is an eminently rural village, focusing their agricultural activity in the vineyard, the main activity of the local population.
Seixal is surrounded, on one hand, by the verdant Laurisilva of Madeira, Natural World Heritage by UNESCO, and on the other hand, by the blue sea that bathes the northern coast of Madeira Island.
The cottage consists of 3 bedrooms, bathrooms, fully equipped kitchen with traditional wood oven, large living and dining room and an attic.
In the outside there is a small garden and a covered barbecue area.
The cottage is located on Caminho Municipal Henrique Rodrigues (Aviador), a pedestrian street, with no access to cars (so the car must be parked outside the cottage area at approximately 15 meters from the cottage).
