"Dear Summerplace Team, just a brief word now that we are back in freezing England to say a HUGE thank you for making our stay at Summerplace so wonderful. We have never before anywhere in the world (and the only continent we have not visited is Antarctica!) been made to feel so comfortable in an establishment. You have obviously put in a lot of hard work and you have done a very fine job. We will recommend Summerplace tom friends and family and we will certainly return". Roy and Jane Cooper, U.K.

We pride ourselves in creating a pleasant and warm atmosphere for you, with an eye for detail.  All our five rooms are newly renovated and upgraded. Each room is en-suite with ample towels to make your stay comfortable.

Enjoy a personal Caffitaly Espresso Machine as standard in every room!

In addition to the Budget Room, our Standard Rooms also have terraces with either a Sea View, Mountain View or our new poolside Garden Room.

For the nature-lover, the wonderful Madeira levada walks begin a short distance from here. There are hiking trails immediately behind the Guesthouse. The country air here is crisp and clean, a contrast to overcrowded and noisy Funchal.

Summerplace is owner-run and managed.  You will leave feeling rested, refreshed and invigorated!

The Guardian, July 2009
"...a lovely guesthouse hidden up a side road in this farming community. Summer Place is intimate, urbane and quietly stylish, even though the setting is wholly rural. I found it difficult to pull away from slobbing by the black swimming pool, with its dynamite view across farm rooftops to the sea in the distance..."

 The Sunday Mirror, March 2011
"SOAK in the views from the swimming pool at this friendly guest house at Faja da Ovelha. There are just five guest rooms and all have private terraces."

 What our Guests are saying:

"Dear Sir,
We wish to thank you for the wonderful stay at your guesthouse (better, Your home). Madeira was an ambiguous experience. You see, we liked places like Iceland, Scottish Highlands (for me, Antonio, more than ten times around there), Namibia deserts, and so on (and the wonderful Azores).
In such a situation Your home was a sort of redemption: an oasis of elegance, style, warm welcome, silence, perfection; all was subdued and sober but, again, perfect (I thank You very, very much for the good liquor I appreciated in the late evening at the room patio). I am sure that it is  hard work defending and sustaining such high standards for the low rates ou request to Your guests.
And so, it’s all. We all will remind as a wonderful experience our stay in You guesthouse, at your home (Madeira would have been very different without you); and, of course, will recommend it to everybody.
Best regards.
Yours, faithfully
Laura, Antonio (and Giulia!). ITALY, August 2014"

Theme from A Summer Place

"Theme from A Summer Place" is a song with lyrics by Mack Discant and music by Max Steiner, written for the 1959 film A Summer Place, which starred Sandra Dee and Troy Donahue. It was recorded for the film by Hugo Winterhalter. Originally known as the "Molly and Johnny Theme", the piece is not the main title theme of the film, but a love theme for the characters played by Dee and Donahue.
