The Main house is from the 18th century and rebuilt in the 1990. This was a neat local home which had almost fallen into ruins. It was restored and amplified with tree bed rooms and luxury living areas. The guests are free to use the kitchen. In addition
Casa das Videiras lies in the picturesque village of Seixal. The village is an agricultural and fishing village. It has the most charming people, natural and hospitable, and they are not yet run over with the tourist trade. Still you can find several good local restaurants and bars near the house. Try the fish specialities, and do not forget the local vine. The typical Madeira vine can be a bit strong, so be careful with the number of glasses. The name Casa das Videiras is named after the vine plant.
Driving from the airport go onto the highway to Funchal (15 min).
Just before entering the city you will find signs going to Ribeira Brava.
Follow this way to the end of the highway (10 min), and then turn right at
the village of Ribeira Brava to go to São Vicente (15 min).
Here you turn left along the coast to Seixal (7 min). In Seixal, just
before the church, you turn right to the port and there, just before the last curve, you will find a parking to the left and the Casa das Videiras.Should there be any problems, phone Johnny at + 351 9655272
The village Seixal is a 40 minutes drive from Funchal. It lies on the majestic north coast of the island. The house is in the middle of the old fashioned village where you will find the rural life long time forgotten. Still, there is plenty to do for the active guest. There are restaurants, bars, small shops (we can not call this a super market) near by. 100 meters to the sea, 500 meters to the natural pools and 800 meters to the beautiful black sandy. Going up, it takes you a few minutes by foot to get into the natural and exotic laurel forest, a declared world heritage by UNESCO.
