About the property

One of the best Private villas in Madeira Island

With an infinity style pool that reaches into the living area, and located in the sunniest area of Madeira, this delightful villa offers tranquillity, outstanding views and close access to the sea.

Located on a fajã (a piece of land at the foot of a cliff) in the sunny Calheta area, close to its sister villas (Villa do Mar I and Villa do Mar II) and slightly elevated, Vila do Mar III has been beautifully converted from a farmers barn into a delightful villa with outstanding views and a heated pool that reaches into the living area.

The living area is full of light and has full length sliding windowpanes that provide direct access to the pool and those gorgeous sea-views. It leads to the large fully equipped kitchen with a large open barbecue.

All bedrooms are on the first floor and have en-suite shower rooms.

Vila do Mar III is a sister villa to the popular Villa do Mar I and Villa do Mar II which are close by.


There is a free Wi-Fi connection in the Villa and a telephone that can be used free for local calls to landlines

Secure parking inside the villa garage is available for one car.

A hire car is recommended.

There is a supplement of €140 per week to heat the swimming pool to 24º. This should be requested in advance and is paid in cash on arrival.

Swimming Pool Dimensions


Length: 8,50 metres

Width: 5,50 metres

Depth: from 0,70m to 1,60m


The villa is secluded and very private and off the beaten track.

The villa has a traditional lookout point at the edge of the pool terrace. Perfect to appreciate those views during afternoon cocktail hour!

Situated in Fajã do Mar, 40 metres above the sea-level, where temperatures never drop below 19ºC, this lovely villa is the ultimate holiday retreat.

There is a deserted pebble beach approximately 30 metres below the street level, reached via a rough track. Although public, the difficult access makes it virtually private.

A lovely little beach hut is located right on the rocky beach 30 metres below, and shared by, the three Villas do Mar.

A front terrace with sunbeds, outdoor shower and built-in barbecue and large table (seating for 16), is complemented with a kitchen (fridger, 4-ring hob) and toilet.

Access is via a pathway with steps that leads from the level of the Villas do Mar down to the beach.
