Location, location, location!

Ocean Front Beach Villa in the sunniest warmest village in Madeira!

The Villa is private and detached between banana fields in the National Park of Madeira.

Sleeps 6 in 3 bedrooms all with Ocean Views! Master Bedroom with en suite bathroom and Private Balcony.

It’s a perfect base for a couple who want a relaxing holiday away from it all or a family or group who also want to be in the country for an activity holiday of coastal and levada walks but, not far from everything.

Licensed by the Madeira authorities.

The villa is reminiscent of an American Beach house has 3 bedrooms The kitchen, dining area and lounge with a balcony the width of the Villa are spacious.

The whole villa is minimalist well-designed by the owners for families and groups on holiday. All the fixtures and fittings are like new as the owners, their family and friends have only stayed in the Villa for short periods in summer months. The accommodation is bright and spacious and all windows have shutters. There is a large garage with an electronically controlled door,a short drive and a traditional Portuguese barbecue.

Wireless Internet access is included in the rate advertised.

Other important guidance and advice

Hire car or not? We recommend pick up of a hire car and drop off at the airport.

Airport transfer: but, some of our clients do not want a hire-car for the whole holiday or to drive. One solution is we can pick 3 people up at the airport and return clients to the airport for 35 Euro each journey. Also, we can offer lifts to some of the attractions including white sand beaches at Calheta and other places such as the start of walks for a reasonable fee per kilometre.

Nothing far away and plenty to do!: The village has a small supermarket, shops, a bank, medical centre, bars/cafes & restaurants. Popular activities in & around the village are: levada forest walks. Fishing, swimming, snorkelling & surfing. Paul do Mar is very flat for Madeira and easy to walk around, roller-skate & cycle! There are many festas (festivals) & the streets are alive with different languages as the locals who work abroad return home all year for a well-earn holiday with family and friends!

Free swimming is easy from certain points including the lagoon next to the harbour and the white sand beaches in Calheta town -10 min drive away.

-In the district with the most Laurisilva forest with famous walks such as the PR19 Paul do Mar - Prazeres and the ancient Levadeiro walk to Faja da Ovelha starting in the village and other walks such as The Levada Nova, Rabacal/Paul Da Serra walks including those to The 25 Springs not far away

Prazeres village has a small zoo art galleries, a small supermarket & some great restaurants.

Bela Vista has got to be rated 10/10. Clean, everything to hand, perfect

  • 5 of 5

When we arrived we were greeted and shown around the property. It was clean throughout, smelt very fresh. Rooms were immaculate. Loads of relevant information about the island and brilliant advice in a handy booklet. The house is situated opposite the ocean and you can watch the sunrise and set from your bedroom if you wish. Near to some great restaurants and bars too. Can't fault anything about this bela vista

Very spacious, fully equipped and well managed apartment.

  • 5 of 5

We had a great stay in this very spacious, comfortable, sunny apartment. It is very well equipped throughout and clean and well maintained. Paul was really helpful throughout our stay with information on the local festival and other activities and sorting out any queries quickly and efficiently. There are wonderful views out to the ocean and bars and a restaurant in easy walking distance. We had some fabulous walks in the area - and only regret was that our stay was all too short. Thank you.

Tastefully decorated modern house with great views

  • 5 of 5

The charming fishing village of Paul do Mar was the right choice for us and so was our beloved holiday home. We stayed there for three weeks, and when not exploring the island, we enjoyed every minute in this comfortable, well furnished and tastefully decorated modern house. It offers great, often breathtaking views of the ocean, but also banana fields and spectacular sheer mountain cliffs. Paul and Iva provided us with plenty of useful and inspiring information. We can highly recommend this house as well as two hiking trails starting in Paul do Mar with beautiful panoramic views and lots of nature: A historic, paved path from the harbour at the eastern end of the village up to Prazeres (535 m altitude) and an old, paved zigzag path from the western end of the village up to Faja da Ovelha (400 m altitude).
