Three House Hotel

Reduced, but charming. ©Three House

"This is a hotel, and that in itself is nothing special," Three House Hotel says about itself. And yet there is something different here. Because once you put down your suitcases here and make yourself comfortable, you won't want to go home again so quickly. Authenticity hovers over things; no wonder, since you're staying in a building with a lot of history. In addition to rooms, there are also apartments. Natural stone and brine pools are available to all guests, including great views of the city.

Madeira oculus

At Okulus, every room is unique. ©Oculus

This vacation home is one of the most unusual accommodations on Madeira. It was dilapidated on a high cliff until Cristina Abreula discovered the cottage. She and her husband bought it and, with the help of local craftsmen, transformed it into a dream home with four bedrooms, an infinity pool and a bathtub overlooking the harbour. Here, every finishing detail has been chosen with love.

Since 1998, the former farmhouse has been a design hotel and a member of the Small Luxury Hotels of the World. Two restaurants, lovingly furnished rooms, some with access to the garden and a small spa are available.
