Villa Lourdes is a stone walled house with extension, a single house.
(Peaceful holiday home Sitting on a hillside just below the village of Loreto. Safe and friendly environment for relaxation). Villa Lourdes is a beautiful two bedroom Madeiran house with a modern extension tastefully added to the original stonewall house. The house was rebuilt 12 years ago, keeping all of its rustic charm and stonework. Some of the original wood can still be seen in the living room and above the old fireplace traditionally used for cooking. The villa is very nicely decorated to reflect its old world charm and cosiness. The Villa has it own private garden with banana trees and many subtropical plants. you have a fantastic uninterrupted view of the sea and surrounding mountains. The house is well located for levada walking. Most of our guests come to walk the many beautiful levadas (irrigation channels) A great place to rest after a day out walking. Lovely views from the garden,and wonderful sunset.
About Villa Lourdes: Villa Lourdes is a cozy rustic house. On the left side of the house is the living room with old stone walls. A small wooden stair leads from the living room up to the wood lined bedroom. The bed room can also be accessed directly through a door on the front of the house. To the left of the bedroom is an on-suite bathroom. To the right you can walk straight out onto the terrace with four sun loungers. This is a favourite place for many of our guests with beautiful views across the mountains and sea. In the evening the sunset is fantastic. The terrace is also great for watching the stars at night. Downstairs we have a utility room with washing machine, bathroom with toilet and shower. On the right there is a bedroom with two single beds and next the kitchen. Next to the kitchen we have the barbecue area. Beside the barbecue you will find the decking area for dining out in the evenings, with garden furniture and parasol. A lovely place to eat and look out over the garden.
Why choose Madeira and Villa Lourdes.: Madeira is a beautiful Subtropical Island mostly unspoilt. It has a beautiful climate never to hot and never cold. The average annual temperature along the coastline is between 15 and 22 . Madeira means 'wood' in Portuguese named because of its forests. These Laurisilva forests are designated a World Heritage Site by UNESCO. In the 16th Century the Portuguese started building levadas to carry water to all parts of the Island for agriculture. These provide a great network of walking paths. All this only three hours and thirty minutes from most European Airports. Villa Lourdes is located in Arco da Calheta, the south coast which is noted for its better weather. The house is less than 5 min drive from Calheta Beach and Marina where you can find many amenities yet return to peace and quiet. Funchal is only 30 min drive and well worth a visit with its Old Town Museums Market and Cable car. But why pay so much for a very small hotel room when you can have an entire house all to yourselves.

Guestbook comments from the manager
We have spent one week in Villa Lourdes with our two year old child : the place is very nice, cosy and quiet with a splendid view of the see in front of the terrace. We would recommend this location for those who want to discover the island. You are not too far from the beach and other interesting places. If you prefer staying at home its nice to sit in the garden and there is also a good restaurant just five to ten minutes from the house in the Village of Loreto. Can't fault the listing for its accuracy, the house is rustic with all you need for self catering would highly recommend overall. We tend to visit new places and not go to the same places twice, however we'd definitely be happy to stay here again.
