About the property

Unique wood house in Calheta

Small Lodge made of recycled wooden pallets over a water tank in mountain Calheta with sea and mountain view. Very cozy, with lots of green surroundings, mountain view, and outside walls made of recycled materials. Unique in Madeira.

The house is on the north side of a small estate in Calheta. Has lots of sun every year and is close to the main city by car.

Some parts of the estate have big bird houses with lots of different breeds, which give us beautiful morning songs. Other small farm animals can be seen on the far side of the premisses. A big part of the estate is being cultivated with vegetables and other fruit trees. Tap water is perfectly drinkable.

In this open space, you can appreciate the diversity of surrounding plants and flowers, while a truly breathing fresh air. At night, the starry wonderful sky can be glimpsed.

Calheta is known for it's weather conditions and closeness between mountain and beach.

The Guests will be able to walk through all the property and get in touch with the small farm animals, plant and cultivate whatever they want. The house has a private area with a garden and a patio with outdoor furniture.

The common area is the Barbecue.

The strongest aspects of the house and it's location in Calheta is the quietness, serenity and the noiseless excluding the birds in the bird house through the morning, which provide a beautiful light wakeup.

Give it a try in Calheta's The Cabana.

Wonderful holiday

  • 5 of 5

My wife and I wanted a relaxing stay together in a beautiful location and this holiday was exactly what we were looking for. The Cabin is delightful, it is small but has everything one could need. There is privacy and peace but modern technology on hand and also only a short drive to the nearby town for cafes, food shops and the sea. A levada is within easy walking distance. We loved the accommodation and plan to come back very soon. A perfect 10/10 vacation.

Sehr zu empfehlen!

  • 5 of 5

Für Leute, die von 100 auf 0 runterschalten wollen, sehr zu empfehlen, gute Ausstattung der "Hütte" mit extra Badezimmer und und Küche, sehr schöne Freianlagen mit Mitbenutzung des Bio-Gartens; das Bett könnte etwas breiter sein und mehr Möglichkeiten für Stauraum der Kleidung wäre sinnvoll. Sehr, sehr nette Vermieter mit persönlichem Kontakt! Ideal als Standort für die Wandertouren nach dem Rotherverführer! Allerdings nicht ganz einfach zu finden, aber die Chefin holt einen am Treffpunkt ab!

Un endroit tranquille et étonnant et une hôte très gentille

  • 5 of 5

C'est avec une panier plein de fruits et légumes du jardin ou de producteurs locaux que nous avons été reçu à la quinta das Florenças. En réponse à nos remerciement, Monica nous a dit de prendre ce que voulions dans le jardin. Nous avons même eu droit aux oeufs (excellent) du poulailler durant tout le séjour. Vraiment très accueillante. Quant au jardin où le chalet se trouve, même après plusieurs jours, on découvre des trésors tant il y a à voir. Volières, étang à tortues, sculptures et autres créations artistiques, aménagements divers, etc.. Bref, très agréable. Nous avons aussi très appréciée la levadas qui se trouve à 100 mètres de la cabane. C'est génial pour profiter de la nature luxuriante de Madère. Bref, dans l'ensemble, c'est très très bien.
