About the property

It sits on the hillside overlooking the beautiful Bow village of Calheta in SW Madeira. This piece of coast, known as the 'Costa Verde' has some of the most beautiful views of Madeira and as such is fast becoming the place to live and holiday for the discerning. The house is detached and set in manicured gardens with terraces for outdoor eating and sunbathing. It also has a large BBQ area and gazebo. Inside the house offers spacious accommodation and is furnished to a high standard, contemporary. The master bedroom has a super king size bed and large bathroom. The other two bedrooms have twin beds. Both bathrooms have baths and showers. The large open plan living room has two sofas, a fireplace, cable TV, DVD, video and CD players, and a large dining table. For the winter months there is a wood burning stove and oil filled radiators for the rooms. The kitchen has ample cupboard space with granite countertops, an electric oven and hob, microwave, washing machine and dishwasher. There is free wi-fi. The house is ideally situated for the sandy beach and taken by foot.

Madeira is known for its temperate year, with even winter temperatures rarely drop below 20 degrees. hillside position of the house means that the summer months are not too hot. Unlike its neighbors in the Canary Islands, the island is abundantly green with full of flowers hedges. The house is 40 min drive mainly using the airport motorway. The house is a five minute drive from two sandy beaches and Calheta marina with its bars and restaurants. There are several good and cheap restaurants nearby, and for those who like more of a night out, Funchal, the cosmopolitan capital of Madeira is 30 minutes drive away. Calheta and the surrounding villages have small mini markets and a bakery, but more extensive supermarket shopping can be found at Calheta Beach and the town of Ribera Brava, just 15 minutes away. Other Activities: Levada walks, deep sea fishing marina


"The Artist House" was built along the lines of a traditional Madeiran house 2 floors with 3 bedrooms that that sleep 6 adults in comfort. It's our second home and as such, has been decorated with care and attention. The kitchen is well equipped and has a ceramic hob and oven with grill. There is also a washing machine, dishwasher and microwave. Outside is a barbecue area and gazebo which is perfect for chilling our with a good book and a glass of wine.

average rating of 4.0 based on 1 reviews

Wunderschöne Aussicht Richtung Sudwesten auf den Atlantik. Top Haus, super Einrichtung und Barbeque

  • 4 of 5

Das Haus hält, was es auf den Fotos verspricht. Gehobene Ausstattung - Sehr gutes Preis-Leistungsverhältnis. Sehr schöner Außenkamin mit Grillmöglichkeit, überdacht. Gut um die Abende im Freien zu verbringen und den Sonnenuntergang über dem Atlantik zu genießen. Der Vermieter ist sehr nett.
