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.
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!
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 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.
