Location Description:

The nearest facilities (a restaurant and café) are a mere 700 metres away, and the village centre (three café/restaurants and the medical centre) is an easy 1Km walk away. 1 Km, by the large roundabout that provides access to the expressway and the motorway system, is a supermarket, café/bakery with cashpoint machine, a further café at the petrol station and a further couple of restaurants. The nearest chemist is in the sleepy village of Estreito da Calheta, only 5 minute’s drive away (4 Km). A few minutes by car will take you to the resort town of Calheta, 6 Km from the Quinta Inácia. With its man-made golden beaches, it is popular with tourists and locals alike. There is a beautiful marina and a good choice of bars and restaurants, a handful of small shops, a good branded supermarket, a bank and chemist. Calheta is famous for producing the best white rum ‘Aguardente’, a special ingredient of the typical Madeiran drink ‘Poncha’. If you are interested in knowing how the white rum is made, we recommend a tour of the ‘Engenho da Calheta’ the rum distillery where you can wander around and sample the produce. Centro das Artes Casa da Mudas is a new centre located at the edge of a cliff overlooking the sea and was built to host superb art exhibitions, musical performances and other events. 15 minutes by car east is Ribeira Brava, the largest town before Funchal, that offers a rocky beach and sea access facilities in addition to a large supermarket and more shops, cafés, and restaurants. Funchal town is an easy 45-minute drive on the expressway, and the airport a further 15 minutes onwards.

What a wonderful experience!
<p>What a wonderful experience! Silverio and Daniel know how to make their guests feel welcome. The Old Cottage has an unrivaled view of the sunsets and offers all that a couple or small family may need to visit the real Madeira. We enjoyed exploring the entire island from The Old Cottage and Silverio and Daniel were wonderful helps at every moment. The local markets and restaurants are very accessible allowing one to cook back at the cottage, picnic or enjoy a night out in Prazeres. We highly recommend a bica and pastel de nata from the cafe at the Meu Super!!! We cannot wait to return and spend another glorious week here. Do not hesitate to book- you will be glad you did!</p>
