About the property

Villa in Calheta, Madeira - The Perfect Location - Only 50 Metres Fr

Casa da Vila is a contemporary 2 bedroom villa with private swimming pool, only 50 metres from the sandy beach of Calheta - renowned for being one of the sunniest and warmest places on the island. Both are well appointed and are equipped with everything you will need to enjoy your self-catering holiday on Madeira.

Within easy walking distance are a good selection of restaurants, bars and cafés, a well stocked supermarket, the promenade and marina. There is also an old sugar mill which was founded in 1901 and still produces brandy and sugar syrup.

Definitely worth a visit is the internationally renowned arts centre of Casa Das Mudas, which was built to promote awareness and life-long learning of art in general, contemporary art in particular.

Although there is a regular bus service, if you want to make the most of your stay and visit the various points of the island, a hire car is recommended.

Notes on accommodation: There are lots of villas and apartments to rent in Calheta, but not many that are only 50 metres from the beach, so the location is ideal. The property was only built 2 years ago so everything is new. It is tastefully furnished, bright and airy with tiled floors throughout and are the perfect base for a holiday in Madeira. It has free Wi-Fi internet connection and all towels, bed linen and beach towels are included in the rental price. Upon request, and when agreed with the owner on arrival, washing of personal clothes will be provided once weekly. If you need we can provide fans.

Everything was excellent!

  • 4 of 5

The description fully reflects the reality, all our expectations were met. The hosts are very friendly and helpful, Isabel provided us with maps and gave all the information about roads and places of interest. The villa is very comfortable and clean, there is plenty of sunshine, the window and terrace views are fantastic! The location is perfect, very close to the beach, there is a place for parking a rented car. The cleaning and clothes washing was regular and of a high quality. The pool is big enough and the garden is well-kept. Definitely recommend this place for family holidays!

It's a shame that we had dreadful weather all week which affected the complete holiday

  • 3 of 5

The property was clean and comfortable. The various outside areas for relaxing would have been ideal given better weather. The downside was although it was very close to the beach having the power station in between was not pleasant. The constant hum coupled with the dogs, presumably from the police station, barking all night was extremely annoying. Although the kitchen was well equipped could have been improved by a modern coffee machine. We could not find filters in the supermarket. The owners were great and maybe if the sun had shone my view could well have been different. We spent much of our time in tunnels trying to find somewhere with better weather on the island.

Owner's Response: We are sorry that the bad weather and the huge rain that ocurred in the end of April, which indeed was not not normal and even out of the ordinary, disturbed your holidays. The hum you refer was a consequence of the big rain. You refer the dogs bark, which we register, although no one never referred that before (maybe dogs barked also connected with the dreadfull weather). You also referred that you could not find the filters for the coffee machine in the supermarket - well the supermarket is quite big and well supplied: we will surely informe that lack to the supermarket manager. Nevertheless, you could have asked us for the filters. We would be very glad to arrange you the filters or anything else you needed. We registered your preference for a modern coffee machine, and supplied the villa with one. As you said, the house is clean and comfortable and the gardens are ideal for relaxing near the pool regarding the sea. You very unlucky with the bad weather, which damaged you having enjoyed the beauty of the villa, gardens and swimmin-pool, as our almost unanimous client's do, and state that they leave the house wit renewed energy. Sorry that we can't control the weather.

Beautiful Villa

  • 5 of 5

We thoroughly enjoyed our stay in this lovely property . It is light , comfortable, spacious and well equipped.There is lots of outdoor space for sunbathing or dining, beautiful sea views from the terrace and a lovely garden with private pool.

The beach and amenities of Calheta are all only minutes walk away, making this a perfect base for a holiday.

The owners were extremely kind and helpful and made sure we had everything we needed.

Well-furnished and presented villa with beautiful sea view

  • 4 of 5

We had a happy 2-week holiday at this villa, taken good care by the owners. The villa is conveniently located in a quiet spot in Calheta with the beach, supermarket and restaurants all within easy walking distance. Villa is clean, modern and has everything you need for a family self-catering. The pool is next to the villa in a pretty garden. Madeira kept us easily occupied for a fortnight and would love to return one day soon!

Relaxation by the sea

  • 4 of 5

Would just like to express our thanks for making us feel so welcome and your kind hospitality. The villa was home from home with a pool and the sun! Set in beautiful location with stunning views. If you want to relax then look no further. Calheta is very quiet but there are some good restaurants ' Calheta beach' and 'new era' . There are boat trips and local buses to take you to Funchal. Only small negative was it was very hot at night would benefit a fan or air conditioning. Many thanks Sue, Julie and Kay

A gorgeous villa to spend a vacation in.

  • 5 of 5

A superb villa! Spacious, clean, well-appointed and maintained. Views from every window, of the garden, pool, banana terraces with lush vegetation and of course the ocean.Lovely garden with pool and huge terraces all around the property. Just steps away from a golden beach and all amenities within easy walking distance along the promenade. Owners were delightful, leaving a welcome basket, wine and a bowl of fruit on arrival. Cannot recommend it highly enough. So sad to leave after a 3 week stay.

Car: recommended

Special interest holidays:

This property is particuarly well positioned if you want to spend your time in the countryside, and enjoy some of the lovely walks that Madeira offers.


Calheta is renowned for being one of the sunniest and warmest places on the island and home to the one of the only golden sandy beaches on Madeira. The beach is only minutes away!


Car hire is not essential but always useful.

There is a good local bus service on the island and the journey time into Funchal is approximately one hour.


Within walking distance is a good selection of restaurants, bars and cafés, the supermarket, marina and promenade.

Further Details:

A hire car is always useful for sightseeing but it is not essential if you are happy to spend your days lazing by the pool or sunning yourself on the beach.

Within walking distance is a good selection of restaurants, bars and cafés, the supermarket, marina and promenade. There is also an old sugar mill which was founded in 1901 and which still produces brandy and sugar syrup.

Perched on the cliff top above is the Centro das Artes- Casa da Mudas, internationally known for its architecture it has permanent and non permanent international exhibitions, a must for art lovers.
