    It's a piece of paradise. The location, the view, the nature and the house are outstanding. We couldn't be happier with it, the comfort, privacy and hospitality deserve a 5 star review.

    Thank you

    Francesco ist ein toller Gastgeber. Er hat uns sehr herzlich aufgemommen und war immer für ein lustiges Gespräch zu haben Das Haus ist, wie auch den Bilder zu entnehmen, etwas in die Jahre gekommen. Daher auch teilweise bei schlechtem Wetter sehr feucht. Der Garten ist sehr schön. Hier fühlen sich SEHR viele Insekten zu Hause, insbesondere Hummeln und Bienen. Leider konnte man nicht über die ganze Farm laufen und die Pferde waren stets in ihren Boxen.

    Thank you

    I ansolutely love the place and the surrounding nature and spots to see. You will be welcome buy very friendly people in a little separate and really clean house. In the autumn and winter time you can light the fire inside and enjoy a calm evening with games, books or cooking in a very practice kitchen. I have nothing to complain about. Dear Francisco and family, please continue like this.

    A beautiful and quiet place in the mountains of Madeira
    We have been to this place in Jan 2016 for 12 days and enjoyed it very much!! After passing a breathtakingly steep road to the property - which our small Fiat Panda still mastered - we arrived in the beautifully located cottage with its spaceous garden. It is very well equipped for self caterers and our host made sure we were not missing anything. The cottage is on an estate with plenty of animals (horses, sheep and birds), but due to its secluded location on the property it was very quiet and peaceful. Every morning we woke up to the nice smell of the eukalypt forest right next to the cottage. Also there is a beautiful view on the ocean, that sometimes was obstructed by a cloud passing by. As this place is at 900m above sea level, it happened sometimes that we found ourselves 'in' the cloud - but since we were out and about discovering Madeira most of the days, this didn't bother us at all. We spend many cosy and relaxing evenings in front of the fire of the wood oven after a long day of hiking. Our hosts Francisco and his wife were absolutely great! There was a very warm wellcome and a lot of info on good restaurants and sights to visit. They were always happy to help out when needed, but never intrusive. We greatly enjoyed our stay and will come back to this place, when we visit Madeira again!

    Cosy cottage in a peaceful place
    We really enjoyed staying in Haybarn Cottage. The cottage is perfect for a couple (also with one child) - there is a cosy ground level with a sittng area, fireplace and an open kitchen with everything you need. Wooden stairs lead to the bedroom and a big bathroom. You can see that the furniture and every detail has been chosen with love. You can feel the Madeiran tradition. It is the perfect place for all who love peace, quiet and being woken up by natural sounds like a rooster or sheep (which we loved!). It is near Funchal but still enough far away to have the feeling of being in the countryside, almost 900m high up. Francisco and his wife are people who take it very seriously to offer good service and are very happy if their guests are having a good time. We even got a birthday cake, so thank you again for that, Francisco! Strongly recommended!

    Paradise found in the hills of Madeira
    We had the perfect holiday when we stayed at Haybarn Cottage, a house that was our home for the two glorious weeks we spent in Madeira. The owner, Francisco, and staff were very attentive and helpful and they did all they could to make our stay as comfortable and wonderful as possible. The cottage itself has been lovingly decorated with all the amenities you would expect. It was, for us, a place we looked forward to returning to after a busy day exploring the island. In fact, we didn't want to leave! My husband enjoyed a wonderful horse-riding lesson while we were there and our daughter, who was almost one at the time, enjoyed looking at the horses, sheep and chickens, as well as exploring the well-kept garden. The island itself is amazing - a great place to explore with a small child.

    Thank you so much. Your review is lovely and your comments very much appreciated. We are very happy that you enjoyed your time in Haybarn Cottage.
    You and the horses!
    Tranquillity itself. Perfect holiday cottage with the horses for company. This cottage is fully equipped with everything you could need. Francisco and Clara could not do more for us, having fresh bread delivered every day for breakfast was excellent.

    A super review. Thank you very much!
    A peaceful, comfortable retreat.
    Haybarn cottage is a lovely quiet little house in the grounds of a riding school. It is not overlooked and from upstairs you look out over the sea. The garden is enclosed by hedges of flowers and gets the sun all day until mid evening. The cottage is very well equipped, with everything you could need. The trip from the airport to the house was interesting, very narrow with hairpin bends up the side of the mountain. Not for the faint-hearted. The local supermarket has the most fantastic cheap fish and fruit. Lovely sea-bass. We explored all over the island, swam in the lava pools, walked along lavardas and ate in some lovely restaurants. The only downside was in April sometimes the cloud level is low and although the coast was sunny, the higher up the mountain you went the more misty it became. We will definately be going again, but maybe in May.

    Idyllic cottage in a truly beautiful location
    Wonderful week spent at Haybarn Cottage. Immaculate accommodation and so peaceful. Francisco and Clara were most welcoming and couldn't have been more helpful. On our first day there, Clara showed us where the local supermarket, restaurants, bakery and chemist were. We were also welcomed with a lovely basket of fruit and chocolate! Absolutely would recommend the cottage to anyone looking for a haven of peace and sunshine on the beautiful island of Madeira!

    We spent almost two weeks in the charming Haybarn Cottage at Francisco and Claras wonderful country estate

    We spent almost two weeks in the charming Haybarn Cottage at Francisco and Claras wonderful country estate. The house was perfectly clean and had all the conveniences we could wish for. Everything worked perfectly and Francisco and Clara were both very warm and helpful. They were very flexible and among other things they arranged for a baby bed and baby chair for our little son. We enjoyed the beautiful setting and the charming and private garden. We couldn't have wished for a better holiday setting or a better host. We give Francisco and Clara and their lovely country estate our highest recommendations.

    ein kleines Blütenparadies im Park

    Wir haben unsere Tage im Haybarn-Cottage sehr genossen.Trotz der Höhe von 900m waren es angenehme Temperaturen, Sonne schon morgens ab 8.30 den ganzen Tag. Das Häuschen ist sehr sauber, gemütlich und überdurchschnittlich gut ausgestattet. Francisco und Clara sind sehr rührend und fürsorglich, absolut sympathisch! Wir haben die Nähe zu den Tieren genossen(Pferde,Vogelvoliere und 2 Schafe mit 2 Lämmer)den kleinen reich blühenden Park drumherum,aber auch unser Gärtchen ganz für uns. Sehr schön waren auch die interessanten Gespräche mit Francisco,fliessend englisch, wenn man sich für Botanic und Biologie interssiert - aber nie aufdringlich. Man lebt abgeschieden vom Turismus, aber ist doch in wenigen Minuten in Funchal . Auto erforderlich! Es war traumhaft, nur leider zu kurz!!!! Wir kommen wieder und können es jedem empfehlen,der gerne in und mit der blühnden Natur lebt. Katja und Martin (München)

    Ein sehr erholsamer Urlaub

    Von Anfang an fühlten mein Mann und ich uns sehr willkommen und gut aufgehoben. Der Besitzer ist sehr freundlich und gab uns gute Ratschläge zu den Themen Ausflüge, Einkaufen und Restaurants. Die komfortablen Betten, die voll ausgestattete Küche und der reizende Garten trugen zu unserem Wohlfühlen bei. Madeira hat uns bezaubert, vor allem seine Bergwelt und die Parks.
