Excellent villa, and a great owner to deal with .

  • 5 of 5

Property was lovely, even nicer than the photos and fully equipped. Very well maintained and comfortable and had all that's essential and much more . Very quiet nice village and very helpful people. Madeira has so much to offer too. In my opinion and as a family of 5 a rental car was necessary. But taxis available too. Excellent communication with the owner and all requests fulfilled with no hassle. All being well we will visit again . 10 days were not enough for sure.

Fabulous villa and pool with amazing views

  • 5 of 5

I can't fault this fantastic property. It is clean, very well equipment, has a good sized pool and amazing views. Also the location was really good for exploring all sides of the island. We were just with the two of us and had a great holiday. There is a small shop just one street down, perfect for fresh bread. The owners were very pleasant and helpful as was the lady who came to meet us and showed us around the place. I'd happily go back for a future holiday; I don't think we could find a nicer place in a better location.

Stunning 5 star accomodation

  • 5 of 5

Myself and two friends stayed in this villa for 5 days. It is a huge villa in a stunning hilltop location with panoramic views. It has top of the range facilities and furnishings and feels like 5 star property. Everything you could possibly need is available in the kitchen including a great coffee machine. The bedrooms have an abundance of sheets and blankets and loads of lovely white bathroom towels are provided. The pool area is spotless and is idyllic for relaxing with a glass of wine. There is a small little harbour about 5 min drive away with several lovely restaurants. Taxis are cheap and readily available. I would highly recommend this property and I am looking forward to returning in the very near future.

Awesome Idyllic house and location

  • 5 of 5

Four friends on a 'Thelma and Louise' style 5 day break. The house was just magic with peaceful relaxing views of the ocean practically everywhere in the house. Plenty of space to give everyone their own 'personal space' and still great indoor and outdoor dining areas to laugh, chat, wine and dine until the early hours. The local people are so friendly and helpful with Fresh bread and croissants available down the road every morning, The choice of restaurants was amazing with each one better than the next. Great choice, excellent value and top class cuisine.Felt more like a stay in a 5 star luxury hotel than a villa. Would highly recommend a stay and really looking forward to my return trip! Sylvia

Fabulous week in a beautiful home

  • 5 of 5

Beautiful spacious home, relaxing pool. Easy, helpful and friendly service from the owner/manager.

I would have no hesitation in recommending this Villa Lamayer as a place to stay. We really enjoyed lounging about in the house and on the terrace by the pool. There was plenty of space for myself, my husband and two children to be together and it was also wonderful that there was a second living room area for the kids to hang out, make as much noise as they liked and we could enjoy our own space. There's everything you need in the kitchen and house generally and I particularly enjoyed our lovely big master bedroom and spacious bathroom.

Madeira is a real favourite of ours, sunny all year round and a lovely place to holiday, very relaxing and lots of things to do. Good restaurants and walks nearby. Thank you, we really appreciated your good service and lovely home.

Villa Lamayer sits in Arco da Calheta, one of the prettiest rural villages on the south coast of Madeira. Well away from the bustle of Funchal it is within easy reach of the whole island by car, thanks to the new road system. Within 5 minutes at Calheta you have a golden sandy beach with swimming, loungers, volleyball and football; a marina with dolphin watch trips, deep sea fishing; a hotel; a well stocked supermarket; cash machine; and good selection of restaurants. You can drive 15 minutes to the wonderland of Rabaçal with laurels, levadas and waterfalls and the wide open expanses of the Paul da Serra - a walker's paradise. The charming city of Funchal is 25 minutes by car and definitely worth a visit. Just beyond Funchal there are two championship golf courses and garden-lovers can enjoy a the world-famous tropical and orchid gardens. The island is famous for its festivals such as Carnival (Feb), Flower Festival (Apr), Atlantic Festival (Jun) and the New Year Fireworks in Funchal.

Other Activities: Calheta beach with its golden sand is only 5 minutes' drive away

Golf: There are two courses on th island. Detail of golf courses can be found at the URLs below:
