REVIEW: Summerplace Guesthouse, Faja da Ovelha, Madeira

If there were ever a place that should be used as a role-model for every other guesthouse, Summerplace would be the obvious choice.

Perched up a hill overlooking the shores of western Madeira, it not only serves as the perfect base for discovering the endless miles of Levadas, but offers a haven of childless peace and tranquility that would sooth even the frayest of nerves.

 

Summerplace welcomeSummerplace Guesthouses you to the owners’ tastefully decorated home. Five perfectly-equipped rooms lead off from a living room/dinning area, the site of Johannes’ periodical culinary feasts (a bargain at €35 for a 3-course evening meal incl. all beverages). Breakfast is enjoyed on the outside deck, overlooking pine forests and hills that plunge down towards the Atlantic Ocean; and having enjoyed one of Barry’s “full house” omelettes and/or a large selection of homemade cakes and preserves, it is quite difficult to imagine the day getting any better.

Which it does, of course, culminating with you lounging on your balcony, sipping a glass of portugese white wine (a 7dl bottle of which can be found in your minibar for a mere €6!) while watching the sun set amongst a myriad blazing colours. A sight that can be equally enjoyed while soothing your hiking muscles in the saltwater infinity pool set in an immaculately landscaped garden.

If there ever were such a place, it would definitely be The Summerplace Guesthouse!
