    300 meters down the cliffs and you are in a paradise: an ecological garden with bananas, mangos, avocados etc. Even some sheep. Already the welcome at the lift is very friendly; as is all the staff, especially Pedro; they organise the transport of your luggage to your cottage; you can get fresh fruits out of the garden in a basket for a good price. The breakfast is served under palm trees with view on the atlantic; there is a nice small sports field and many romantic corners in the garden.

    The cottages are in an ecological farm/garden and in case you are afraid or uncomfortable with all kinds of crawling things namely insects (e.g. spiders of ca. 3 cm and bugs of ca. 4 cm) you should be prepared for some exciting nights: the cottages are clean and there is eco-insecticide available in the cottage, but there are so many corners in the lovely refurbished houses that there always comes crawling something. However: in case you do not mind insects: go there, it is indeed paradise! You have all-time access to the lift, but you should be aware that from the cottage to the car-park (or vice versa) it takes ca. 30 minutes. So, in case you plan to have a tight sightseeing program this might be an obstacle. Well, but once you are down at Faja you do not wish to leave from there anyway.

    * The peacefulness of the place, ZEN * the beautiful gardens * the cozy house with private sea access * bbq possibility * the staff * the ambiance of the little bar/restaurant by the sea This is simply paradise! On top of everything, the owner had his bday party while we stayed there and because they closed the only restaurant for that day, they kindly invited the guests staying there to enjoy the feast with them, delicious lamb and Oreo cookie cake - obrigada! It is an amazing place. DEFINATELY GOING BACK!

    The prices of the wines to take to houses (but understandable considering location and can be avoided by buying before arrival)

    such a amazing place to relax, well ecuipt house and what a view. we really got away from the hassle to wind down. madeira and faja dos padres has all you need for that.

    the walk up the steps to the lift isn't very far but enough to get your hart rate up. the houses do not have wifi, but that is part of the relaxing really.

    - Interesting place with beautiful scenery - Extremely quiet and remote - Small number of guests - Friendly staff - Excellent restaurant

    It would be good if guests could use the elevators in the evenings without calling the lift operator first

    If you don´t bother to take the elevator and to walk a bit: this place is haven on earth. Very quiet and romantic place next to the ocean. Very friendly and helpful staf. Smal kitchen with good stuf to prepare commen meals.

    The secluded area is exceptional, with a lot of different fruit farming. The food is good. The staff is very friendly. The bungalows are very spacious and equipped with complete kitchen facilities.

    Breakfast is from 10 AM to noon only; dinner has to be ordered before 5 PM and eaten before 6 PM – i.e. not very flexible! The place is not suitable for physically weak persons and those who are scared of height.

    We just fell in love with the place - it is a paradise on Earth! Unique atmosphere of peace and quietness surrounded by fantastic scenery - the sun, the ocean, cliffs and beautiful gardens of the eco-farm full of mangoes, papayas, bananas etc. Normally I do not like to stay in one place, but when we got to this place I understood that I do not want to go anywhere else. Due to location of the hotel you feel absolutely secluded from the whole world. And the elevator impressed us a lot - absolutely unique machine! Some pets live on the farm (cats and dogs) and their presence made us feel absolutely like at home. Bungalows are spacious and comfortable (bedroom+living room+bathroom), and equipped with kitchen and bathtub in the bathroom. All bungalows have terrace facing the ocean. Bungalows separated from each other by the fence, so you will hardly be disturbed by the presence of the neighbors. Very tasty breakfast is served in the restaurant (5 min walk from bungalows across the farm along the coastline) at the reasonable price of 5 EUR/person. Cannot help advising to try passion fruit dessert - delicious! For the rest of the menu prices are average for the tourist places on the island. Staff is very friendly. We will definitely come back next October!

    We liked everything, but for people who are not that strong physically and who are scared of height the place may not be very suitable.

    excellent location, views from the house, lift operator and restaurant staff very helpful and friendly

    the matress from the bed is like a hangmat, really bad for the beck, the house could have been a little more cleaner, especially the bathroom. It takes a least half an hour to get from the house to the parking

    Very obliging and friendly staff. Is literally heaven on earth. Tasteful and cosy interior design. After some days of hiking and excursions, Faja dos Padres is the perfect and peaceful place to calm down and relax.

    The lack of vegetarian food offerings in the restaurants menue. The elevator is nothing for people who are scared of heights.
