Harbour House, Paul do Mar
House | 2 bedrooms | sleeps 4
Harbour House looks out across the Atlantic ocean and the harbour at Paul do Mar where fishing vessels land their catches daily, retaining the charm of a traditional Madeiran fishing village.
A small holiday house with breathtaking views of the sea, on all three floors, as well as the fabulous statue on the harbour at Paul do Mar- this house is located literally a stone's throw from the beach. Why not leave all the stress behind and enjoy Madeira at its best in a charming and friendly traditional fishing village
The recently upgraded accommodation includes kitchen with cooker and hob. An outside terrace with table and chairs for eating out on those lovely sunny evenings. Alternatively you can also eat on the first floor in the comfortable lounge / diner. As well as a dining table this room also has a sofa that could be converted to a small double bed, High Speed Internet and 40 inch TV. The view from the lounge gives the illusion that the sea is your own personal infinity pool. A shower room and washing machine is off the landing. The top floor has a king size bed with an ensuite shower room with patio doors leading to a balcony with 2 sunbeds and parasol -the perfect place to relax with a cold glass of wine/beer after a hot day on the beach and watch the world go by. Wi-Fi is available on all floors.
Ideally located for walking, fishing, snorkelling, wind surfing, swimming or just relaxing on the beach. One of the best and challenging walks on the island starts and finishes within metres of the house - the walk from Paul do Mar to Prazeres 1.8km - listed in walking guide books - so you can abandon the car, enjoy the views of both cliffs and sea on the way up and at the top enjoy lunch at the hotel before walking back down.
There are few local bars and restaurants, a coffee shop, mini market and bank within walking distance.
Harbour House sleeps up to 4 but is ideally suited for couples who want a relaxing comfortable break
