Estalagem do Vale is a charming, historical country-house style inn that offers comfortable, “home from home” accommodation in the beautiful setting of the Laurissilva Forest, one of the most idyllic places on Madeira Island.
The main building itself has a colourful history: it started life as a manor house hotel over 150 years ago. It was a school for many years and was even used as a hospital when the local community needed such a facility!
Nowadays Estalagem do Vale boasts 41 rooms, with such 21st century conveniences as cable TV, internet access and direct dial telephones: everything to make life as comfortable as can be. Guests can also enjoy the restaurant, bar and other leisure facilities, within the building or set in the beautiful gardens. Estalagem do Vale welcomes younger visitors and has one room adapted to meet the needs of less mobile guests.
Its lovely location on the northern side of Madeira Island, in the São Vicente valley that forms part of the renowned Laurissilva Forest - a World Heritage Site - ensures that visitors can soak in the magical atmosphere of Nature at its very best. Although capital city Funchal is only 20 kms away, it really is another world, one where birdsong and the heady scent of herbs wafting on the breeze are the order of the day.
Once you send a reservation request, the landlord is notified that you are interested in their offer. From that moment, they have 24 hours to approve or reject your reservation.
Landlords are mainly interested in the profile of their tenant. Do not forget to fill in all necessary information, add your profile picture, or even make a short video about yourself. Doing that will make you more attractive for the owner and your reservation will more likely get approved.
You can take a look at the contract in advance and online with every offer. After you sign it, you will find it in the application My Housing.
While arranging a contract on Flatio, you do not have to worry that it could be disadvantageous for you. Our contracts are made so that we avoid all problems! All of them are the same, used by all the landlords on Flatio.

How you can cancel a reservation varies depending on what stage the reservation is in.
Is your reservation request still waiting for landlord approval? Then you can simply cancel it directly from your My Housing web app!
However, suppose the owner has already approved your reservation request, and you are no longer interested in it. In that case, you can still cancel the reservation before you sign the lease agreement. Just consider that you should do this only in essential cases. Because when the landlord accepts your reservation, their property is stopped being advertised, and they can lose the chance to rent their property to someone else.
Do you have an approved reservation and also a valid agreement? In order to cancel your reservation, contact Flatio customer support well in advance of your contract beginning (the specific time and amount of refund depends on the type of cancellation policy).
