Warm welcome and marvelous sunsets Dear Sofia and family! Thank you for your warm welcome a tour shor-term “home” Tenda! Madeira was good to us and showed itself from its sunny side! We had very relaxing days here, enjoying the nice and sunny garden with its fruits and hidden treasures, the view from our balcony overlooking the sea, the visits from the funny cat, specially momma cat with her 5 cute littles and not to forget the marvelous sunsets! We hope to come back soon in one of your lovelly cottages. Thank you very much and take care! Martina 11/2019
Amazing Place Dear Sophia and family, these 10 days at Tenda, Calhau Grande were marvellous. Although i tis already November and the weather forecasts online were rainy ans gloomy, we were treated well with astonishing sunsets and overall great weather. This was right what we needed, na escaoe from the autumn/winter blues of the Netherlands and some vitamine D for the little growing baby in my belly. Madeira offerd us some nice hikes, good food and relaxation. A very good start for the growing baby. :) Next to the beautiful sunsets, we enjoyed the company of the kitties. A tip for the next guests, try only to feed them after you ate yourself. The baby cats are moved to higher grounds now as it rains from time to time in the nights. They are already walking around on their own adventures. We hope that everyone else enjoyes their madeira adventures as much as we did. Thank you very much for this amazing place you have and your hospitality. Best wishes Ivo and Julia 11/2019
