Great for sea, sun & exploring, couples and families, in sunny Calheta
This is a great holiday villa, whatever you wish to do whilst in Madeira. Located in sunny Calheta, with great views over vineyards and banana plantations to the sea, it is only a five minute drive to the beach, sea and marina, but also perfectly located for exploring the island and with easy access to the Paul da Serra plateau where you will find the best walking conditions.
The entrance leads directly to the very spacious open-plan living space with lounge and dining areas, which leads onto the long front terrace with superb panoramic views to the sea, outdoor dining facilities and sun-beds.
The large fully equipped kitchen is off the living room and opens up to the back terrace where you will find the large built-in barbecue and the separate laundry room.
The living area also leads to the large ground floor bedroom with double bed and en-suite, to the second bedroom with two children's single beds and to the family bathroom.
At the top of the stairs is a great leisure room with two sofa beds (for the 9th and 10th person), a children's desk and a stand with a selection of books and activities for children, as well as a selection of table games. The front balcony is a great place for an evening drink contemplating the wonderful views over the vineyards and banana plantations to the sea.
There are two further bedrooms (one with a double bed, the other with two single beds) on this floor, as well as a family shower room.
Overall a great spacious villa that works as well for a couples as for families, and is perfectly located to benefit from the sun and sea and as a base to explore or for walking holidays.

Traditional villa with great views
We ended up staying here after being stranded on the island following a flight cancellation and from the start David, who looks after the villa, could not have been more helpful. He picked us up and returned us to the
airport at a reduced rate. His family run a small shop and bar a very short walk from the property and so he was always on hand for little things such as acting as a translator when ordering taxis and keeping theshop open when we arrived to let us get essentials. This made our firstnight at the villa a lot more enjoyable!
The house itself was very clean and spacious with a large balcony and stunning views of the ocean. It got sunshine all day long and well into the evening. It was traditional in style inside and out with comfortable
furniture. The villa has good parking if you have a hire car. It also had great wifi.
Thanks for the great review, especially as this is a new rental, very important for future guests.
Schönes, großzügiges Ferienhaus in ruhiger Lage mit toller Aussicht
Das Haus liegt in einer ruhigen Seitenstraße von Calheta und besitzt einen tollen Meerblick. Im Haus ist alles vorhanden, was man braucht, es ist sauber und falls Probleme auftreten ist der zuvorkommende Housekeeper hilfsbereit zur Stelle. Neben der herzlichen Begrüßung gab es ein Begrüßungsgeschenk in Form von heimischen Wein und Kuchen.
Ein paar Meter vom Haus entfernt gibt es einen kleinen Shop/Cafe in dem man wirklich fast alles bekommt.
Alles in allem war es ein toller Aufenthalt, auch wenn das Wetter mal nicht so toll war.
Thank you very much for your review and comments. Much appreciated.
With superb panoramic sea-views and offering privacy and seclusion, surrounded by tranquil countryside, and with a small café/snack bar and minimarket 100 metres away, a further café and chemist only 300 metres away, Casa Vista Bela is a great base for exploring Madeira and making the most of the sun and sea. It is only 3 Km (5 minutes by car) to the resort town of Calheta, with its man-made golden sandy beach. Here you will, find a selection of cafés, restaurants, a larger supermarket, the marina (boat trips can be arranged), banks and a chemist. A 5-minute drive will also take you to either of the two surfing meccas of Jardim do Mar and Paul do Mar, at sea level and with trendy café-bars (try the caipirinhas and mojitos). The expressway (500m away) provides you with easy access west to Prazeres and onwards, or up to the plateau of Paul da Serra where you will find wonderful walking conditions. Eastwards will take you to the villages of Ponta do Sol and Ribeira Brava (10 minutes and 15 minutes respectively) The vibrant capital, Funchal, is an easy 35-minute drive and the airport less than 50 minutes along the motorway.
