Beautiful view, peaceful and charming.
We really enjoyed our stay in the house. It was our first time on Madeira, and we came for hiking and relaxing. We are four adults - two couples, so the house fitted our needs for two bedrooms. We came pretty late and were greeted at the house and showed around. The house is cosy and well equipped with everything you need. We used the fireplace downstairs and the central heat upstairs during most of our stay, as it was raining on and off and the house got a bit damp. We also cooked meals on the outdoor grill and enjoyed sitting outside, even though we needed a fleece jacket. The view is spectacular.
The few times we needed help or advice we called Anna (caretaker and neighbor) and she came right over :-).
So we can for sure recommend staying at this beautiful spot.
The House of the Hawks, is situated on top of a mountain high, which is why we can contemplate the setting of the sun in front and privileged position for its west geographical position you have, watching from the lawn and garden, where there is a rare century-old plum tree; or, enjoy it while preparing your barbecue.
The house, of traditional old building in stone and tile-of-straw, was rebuilt a decade ago. Consists of two floors where the ground floor is an open space where the kitchen area is located, with its old wood oven. It is equipped with microwave, stove, food processor, dishwasher and refrigerator. Dining area and lounge with wood burning stove is equipped with TV, DVD player and CDs and internet access. In this space, we can contemplate traditional antiques Madeiran copper, stoneware, glass and wood, some linked to wine making and other traditional Madeiran cuisine, watercolors, some original prints and rare example of a palanquin which was an ancient means of city transport.
Upstairs are two bedrooms, one with double bed, the other with two single beds, and another room where is equipped bathroom with cabin-shower. Whether the sleeping rooms or toilet facilities are equipped with central heating.
