Madeira Holiday Rental? Our magnificent renovated Madeiran house is for rent for holidays when we are away sailing our boat in the Netherlands or at sea. It is not a typical holiday rental, not part of a holiday complex, not situated in a new residential development. It is a detached house, situated on the egde of a small hamlet of old farmhouses, like Raposeira de São João used to be as well. No cheap furniture, but a real home, meant to be a permanent residence.

Hidden in a lush, green valley, in the quiet West of Madeira lies our house Raposeira de Sã0 João. The stunningly renovated typical Madeiran house is for rent throughout the year. Whether you want a sun-holiday, an active one – Madeira’s levadas are famous for their walking possibilities – whether you just want peace and quiet of whether you are a nature lover: Raposeira de Sã0 João is the perfect Madeira holiday rental.  The house has a spectacular ocean view, and it overlooks the wooded valley of São João and São Lourenço near Fajã da Ovelha, a village in the council of Calheta on the sunny south side of Madeira. The stunningly renovated typical Madeiran house is for rent throughout the year, that is, it is for rent when we cannot be there ourselves.

The house is not just a cottage or a holiday home. It is a house that is meant for permanent residence and it is equipped accordingly. The house sleeps up to 4 people. when we first found the house it was in a sorry state. It was absolutely uninhabitable. We have lovingly restored it to its old charm and extended it into what it is now: a light and comfortable home, with the old elements still present but with a lithg and airy contemporary interior. Clicking on the pictures below will show you how it was when we found it and something of the process reshaping it into its actual splendour.
