Excellent location and features for those seeking something a bit special

  • 5 of 5

This property has two main aspects, first the location, if you are looking for peace and quiet, outstanding views and a sense of the true Madeira this could be the place for you, situated near the top of Arco da Calheta there is nothing to interrupt your view down to the Atlantic. Surrounded by a mix of Traditional and modern properties there is a small supermarket and a number of cafe/bars in the immediate vicinity, although a trip to Calheta beach will be required for the full shop. A car is not only recommended but essential to enjoy the surroundings and the island generally.

The two bedrooms are at the rear of the villa which has the advantage that the do not get too hot despite the 30+ temperatures. The living and kitchen area can easily cater for 4 although we were only 2 which made it more spacious. A small utility area allows washing to be done so you don't have 'piles' when you return home. The outside had a pleasant veranda area. The pool is a unified depth of 1.5m and large enough for a decent swim. It would be advisable for young children to be supervised.

We were lucky enough to meet the owners, Alberto and his family, when we arrived, and had a personally conducted tour of the house and the area. Other members of the family are responsible for the management and maintenance, but they are just as friendly.

We would have no hesitation in recommending this villa to those looking for a relaxed, trouble free holiday.

A fantastic February holiday

  • 5 of 5

We thoroughly enjoyed our stay in this property, the view was spectacular and the area is beautifully quiet. We followed the steep path by the side of the house down into the village for an espresso every morning and Calheta beach was about 40 minutes away by foot and the walk is stunning!

The property was great, absolutely spotless and very well appointed. The kitchen in particular was very well stocked and there were plenty of towels and bedding. The owner João was very helpful providing local information and maps annotated with the best places to eat and drink.

We used the BBQ in the garden several times and even managed a swim in the pool, which was refreshing in February but far warmer than home :)

A perfect place to stay

  • 5 of 5

The house is extremely well presented. The pool is heated and is perfect. Our son loved it. The house has great views and has everything you need. Margarida was helpful and the instructions to the house were easy to follow.

We would recommend this house. We will definitely come back.

A perfect holiday

  • 5 of 5

This house is perfect. It has everything you need and is very well equipped. The pool is heated to 28 degrees making it lovely and warm. The house is finished to a high standard and is very modern. We have rented a few different properties around Arco Da Calheta and this is one of the nicest we have stayed in. A car is definitely recommended but that would be no different to any other house you stay at in this area. The owner Margarida is friendly and welcoming and very helpful. She is close by should you have any queries. We would stay here again and recommend to others.

séjour très agréable

  • 4 of 5

Séjour très agréable. Maison avec les commodités que nous souhaitions. Vu imprenable sur la mer et jardin avec piscine superbe.

Le fait d'avoir une piscine chauffée était un plus bien appréciable car la fraîcheur de l'air à cette période nous permettait de profiter de celle-là.
