A place to recharge the batteries
We just returned from our second stay at Faja dos Padres. We think anything has been said.... An island within the island. The quietness and peace.The magic of the place. The friendlyness of the staff (special thanks to Nelio who had to be at the cable car before 7a.m. because of our early flight). We are looking forward to our next stay. Hope to see you all soon on the beach!!!

Very Special Place
We just spent 5 days in this fantastic location on our second visit. The houses are very quiet and secluded, with only the sound of the waves breaking on the beach beneath the terrace. The restaurant is really excellent, with fresh locally sourced fish and vegetables grown on the farm at Faja Dos Padres. Staff are lovely and welcoming and the scenery is stunning.

A little paradise!
Hi Bruno, Nelio, Mario, Chef and all the service staff!
We loved our too-brief two nights at Faja dos Padres. It is truly a magical place - a little paradise!
The cottage was perfect - Ocean views from the terrace and almost every room. Falling asleep and then waking to the sound of the surf was wonderful.
The historic significance of the Faja also helps to make the place special. The Fernandes family has maintained the sense of the past while providing 21c amenities - the perfect combination.
Of course Chef and his staff provide excellent meals and attentive yet friendly and personal service.
The parade of staff who brought us our BBQ ingredients for our final dinner to cook for ourselves was a welcome sight.
Strolling through the fruit and vegetable gardens and vineyards is beautiful and the fresh fruit and produce served is terrific.
Many thanks to Bruno and Nelio for their ***stance with our guest's delayed arrival and special thank you to Mario for our impromptu visit to the adega and being able to taste both the older Malvasia but the two 'baby' Terrentez wines - can't wait to taste them in more maturity.
Best, Llyn & Rod and Roxane and Michael

Very nice, quiet place. A real littel paradies. Perfect for a relaxing holiday. The whole staff, reception, restaurant, cable car operatior and cleaning person were very friendly and helpfull. The food in the restaurant very fresh and tasty, just a pitty that the place closes by 6.00 o´clock p.m. Nice to sit under Palm threes ride by the sea. Certainly a place to come back.

Definitely a place to recommend!
We had a great time in Madeira. Faja dos Padres is a perfect spot to explore the island from.
It's beautiful, the scenery is spectacular and it is very quiet.
Definitely a place to recommend!

We had an amazing week at FDP. It was extremely relaxing which was just what we were after. The food is really good wholesome food cooked from ingredients either picked from the farm or caught from the sea so is very fresh.
The staff will bend over backwards to help you and the whole place has its own microclimate - when it was raining on the island it was still glorious sun at Faja Dos Padres. If you are looking to get away from it all then this is the place to go. Maybe not if you like crazy night life or if you have children but i would highly recommend this to anyone else.
If i had to change one thing it would be to have just one night a week that the bar stayed open later. Thank you very much and hopefully we will be back very soon.

Tuesday, 07 June 2016 | Faja dos Padres - Casia de la Maria
A Very Special Destination
Imagine the perfect getaway and you would be on track, especially Casia de la Maria, located at the end of only a few cottages with a large private terrace at the water's edge and views of the cliffs. Spectacular, serene, simple luxury. Rise each morning to a 10 minute walk through banana trees and other lush foliage to the outdoor restaurant overlooking the sea, with palm trees in a row. Wonderful coffee, homemade jams and bread, cheese and ham and eggs if you like. Even homemade Mango juice! An early dinner delivered to your door can be ordered too. This cottage has marble and wood floors throughout, glass windows on two sides of the kitchen overlooking the sea and cliff. The brand new cable car is superb and only takes a couple of minutes to go up and down, very easy and convenient to go out to dinner or tour the island! If you want a memorable holiday for excellent value with total seclusion look no further!
