About Eduardo Silva
Having lived in France for twenty years, I came to Ile de Madere in 1997. I come from the north side of Santana Island, where I lived my childhood. When I came back to the island I wanted to stay on the sunny side, the south west, because it was related to my occupation, pool builder, I created my company.
Eduardo Silva purchased this House in 2003
Why Eduardo Silva chose Ribeira Brava
I bought this house about 7 years ago; it is right next to my house because it is a peaceful location, surrounded by banana trees and close to the city centre, its southwest geographic location benefits from the best weather in Ile de Madere.
What makes this House unique
It was more than a year ago that I decided to rebuild the house, because it was in poor conditions. I had the goal to rent it to people interested in visiting this nice Island. Stone is a noble material, I used it a lot, you can find it in the inside and outside. I think people who stay here will be happy. Obviously, I did everything according to my taste, hoping you will like it. Eduardo Silva

Super Haus, ideale Lage für Ausflüge, Perfect house, Perfect location for excursions
Everything in the accomodation was perfect! It was a clean and comfortable house from the kitchen to the entertainment and great bathrooms and clean pool. The only thing what was disruptive was the dogs in the neighbourhood every night from 2 -3 o `clock they were outside and meet together for a bark and howlig contest. The only thing what can be better is the description of the way to the house. ( difficult to find) . If you comes from the VE3 Funchal >> Ribeira Brava you drive stright ahead to the coast . Before you reach the traffic circle behind the first street bump a small street goes right. This stree always ahead for ca. 10 min. In a left hand bend is a garden center ( before the red house ) there left down the hill and 50 m later on the right side is a small street ( Estrada de Quebrada / no road sign). At the end of this street parking area on the left side. Use the stone steps ahead and the big grey house ( no number or name ) is Casa Laura.
Serenity in the sky
The house is a bit away from it all but given the necessity of using a car, not too far. Located on the top of the ridge offers beautiful views. The pool and jacuzzi work perfectly. The pool is in the shadow in the afternoon. Barbecue, though looking good, is not really working as it is too high and the flames would have to be really high to work. Parking place is provided. Everything is clean, fresh, stylish.
- Sofa bed downstairs is uncomfy to sleep, though the arrangement with a separate bedroom and bathroom at the first level is very convinient.
- Basics such as bin bags, toilet paper for the periode, and washing mashine tablets should be provided.
- Lighting in the living room, over the table is a bit too dark.
Overall we were very happy in Casalaura. We recommend walks in the neighbourhood which are very interesting and relaxing way to explore everyday Madeira.
Thank you Eduardo!
Very nice two storie house. Hot tub upstairs in master bedroom was nice. Great diswasher.
A little hard to find the property with no address, but we recognized it from the photos. Also we googled "Casa Laurel" and got very close. It has a parking garage down the hill. Just a note, it is about 45 steps up the hill to reach the front door. I have a bad knee and lugging my 50lb suit case up was difficult for me. You have a very nice patio by the pool to have coffee on in the morning. You can go upstairs and see the mountains and ocean all around. It was just a few miles down the mountain to a very nice grocery store. We mostly cooked at the house. The roads are very steep and we chose not to venture out much. Eduardo had a large plate of herbs and produce he grew waiting for us. Later he came by with a huge basket of more. We only speak english so it was a little hard to communicate. We had no problem or issues while there. The house is located up on a mountain edge and there is a very lovely walk along the edge with veiws on both sides of the mountain. Eduardo was very nice.
Very high standard of accommodation with everything you need.
Great property in a great location. Quiet and luxurious. Fabulous pool and spa bath. Very good WiFi (streamed films). Everything you could need is supplied and all of a high standard and quality.
Merci pour votre aimable appreciation et pour votre sejour a Casalaura , et nous vous souhaitons une tres bonne année 2018
Great peaceful villa with lovely views
Just back from a fabulous 10 nights stay in Casalaura. The villa was modern, super clean and spacious and set in a peaceful valley 5 minutes drive from Ribeira Brava. A car is a must to explore the island. Couldn't recommend this villa enough!!
Merci por amaible appreciation, et por votre sejour a Casalaura.
Beautiful modern villa in quiet hillside location with amazing sea view
This villa has everything you need for a luxurious quiet holiday.
Set well away from the bustle of Funchal, with nothing more than the sound of the wildlife - but close enough to the shops and restaurants of Ribeira Brava. With easy access to the main roads for exploring along the coast or in the mountains.
The spa bath is a great addition to the house and the showers and the heated pool add that little extra. There are lots of nice little extra touches around the house that make this more than your average holiday home.
The reality lives up to what the pictures show.
Thanks to Eduardo for his welcome.
J'espère que vous avez fait un bon voyage
Merci beaucoup pour votre appréciation , en esperant vous revoir une autre fois
I hope you made a good trip
Thank you very much for your appreciation, hoping to see you again
Casalaura located in south Oeste de l'Ile, in Ribeira Brav / Tabua, in a quiet and peaceful location, with breathtaking sea and mountain views, mild and temperate climate all year round
Close to Ribeira Brava, you will find a pebble beach and black sand, you will appreciate the gastronomic restaurants
Madeira has mostly pebble beaches, the advantage is that you will always find crystal clear water
However sandy beaches are also found in, Ribeira Brava, Calheta, Lugar Baixo Funchal, Caniçal, Machico etc.
The tradition is Santana North Island with traditional thatched houses
In Porto Moniz, also in the north, are the natural pools with sea water, built on rocks, you will take pleasure in swimming
We must not forget the walks everywhere there are the "Levadas" which take you into the heart of forests
