Why come to ZiaZen House ?

An invitation to slow life

Welcome to ZiaZen House, a place dedicated to calm and simplicity. It is the ideal place to disconnect from all your daily worries and experience the slow life in harmony with nature, with all the comfort of a hotel.

Stay in a room with a view of Eagle Peak and the ocean. Take advantage of this opportunity to wake up early and admire the splendid sunrises directly from your bed.

Perhaps you would prefer to wake up with a view of the vegetation along the Levada do Castelejo ? This irrigation canal is famous for the beautiful hiking trail that runs along it.

Meals full of flavor and color

For your breakfasts, picnics and dinners, enjoy the delicious cuisine prepared with love by Cilene. Enjoy fruits, vegetables and herbs directly from the garden. Bananas, guavas, avocados, tomatoes, zucchinis and many other vegetables will embellish your colorful and vitaminized plates.

Activities to connect to yourself and to nature

Cilene offers yoga classes and massages to travelers who come to her lodging in Madeira.

Take advantage of this opportunity to try aerial yoga, a discipline that consists in doing movements while suspended in a light fabric. This relaxing practice helps to limit the tension on the vertebrae and joints.

To free yourself from all the stress accumulated in your daily life, treat yourself to an ayurvedic or shiatsu massage. We recommend that you enjoy it after a good day of hiking in the area.

Hiking at will

Antoine is a mountain guide. He will be happy to share with you all his good tips for a successful and exotic hike on Madeira Island.

Thus, 2 steps from the ZiaZen house, go on the Levada do Castelejo trail, to discover the lush nature of the volcanic island.

Those of you who want to get some height can also try to climb Pico Ruivo. Madeira’s peak reaches 1862 meters above sea level and promises a fantastic landscape to the experienced hikers who climb it.

On the east side of the island, explore also the point of São Lourenço. From this peninsula, you can admire the deep blue ocean that stands out against the dark rock. For a spectacular play of colors, why not reserve this beautiful walk for the end of the day ?


Although Madeira does not have many natural beaches, the north coast is dotted with some pleasant swimming areas in the Atlantic Ocean. Porto da Cruz has a pebble or sandy beach depending on the tide, as well as a beautiful seawater pool.

Other places on the island await you for a refreshing dip :

  • The beach of Seixal, with its surprising black volcanic sand ;
  • The natural pools of Porto Moniz, formed by rock and lava.
