Perfect for just the two of us. Tastefully decorated and very roomy. Off the beaten tourist track which suited us down to the ground. Another couple staying with us, though, would've presented bathroom difficulties. Steep flight of stairs to bedrooms could be tricky for anyone with mobility problems. We'd definitely consider going back!
A wonderful house in Calheta!
This is a very nice place to stay. The house has been beautifully restored in authentic style. We enjoyed staying in Calheta where there is a nice beach with marina and restaurants. Our hosts were very welcoming and accommodating. I would recommend this rental if you are looking to stay outside of Funchal and have a car.
Lovely traditional madeiran house
Our stay in Madeira was perfect as we were lucky enough to stay in this beautiful house. It is very clean ,spacious,light and quiet. You will need a car to get about but very easy to navigate your way around the island from this location .Has a double garage to keep the car safely away at night even though every area we went seemed safe and the people lovely .The owners were very helpful on ideas of places to go and when we had a problem with a exterior door not shutting they got to the cottage quickly to sort it out for us . We would highly recommended this property
Nice Madeiran house
Very nice house, accurate description, fully equipped, clean, large terrace, garage, friendly and informative hosts, welcome pack, in-house BBQ, cosy dining room and table.
Attention point: chimney needs cleaning, ash particles drop down on stove.
Good house but not geared up for poor weather.
Good spacious house but as open plan the wind whistled down the chimney in the kitchen and blew through the whole house. Rain also leaked through the kitchen roof. Very little in the way of heating. Had to wear a fleece for fist two days. Much better in improved weather.
Dear Mr. Aiton,
Thank you for your comment, I'm realy sorry for the leaked coming from the roof kitchen, it never happened we will check and fix it soon. About the heating in the house as you know we have three heaters in the house, because in Madeira the weather is not to cold so usually we only use these kind of portable heaters when necessary.
Sehr sympathische Vermieter, sehr schönes Haus
Wir haben uns sehr wohl gefühlt. Für zwei Personen ist das Haus großzügig bemessen. Gemütlich und mit Geschmack eingerichtet. Sehr guter Startpunkt für unsere Exkursionen vom Bergwandern bis zum Whale Watching. Alles prima!! Wir kommen gerne wieder.
Sehr geehrter Herr.
Vielen Dank für Ihren Kommentar.
Wir hoffen jedoch, dass sie bei Ihrer Reiseplanung weiterhilft.
Mit freundlichen Grüßen
Ana und Rafael Nunes
The house is located in a quiet location with shops and cafes close by, in a small rural suburb where you can find beautiful sights of the Atlantic Ocean and mountains. It's also very close to some of the most famous levada walks of Madeira and from the UNESCO-protected Laurisilva Forest (about 10 minutes away by car).
It is only a few minutes' walk from a small mini-market and bar/cafe run by a friendly English speaking owner, where you can taste the most famous and traditional Madeira drinks while enjoying our tropical annual weather.
The golden sandy beach at Calheta is only 5 minutes away by car, where there are plenty of cafes, free Wi-Fi hotpots, restaurants, banks, the marina and a supermarket. This is one of the only sandy beaches on the island and is ideal for the younger bathers, but if you're searching for new experiences, you can always try the Big-game fishing or the whale and dolphin watching activities based in the marina.
Also, with the newly asphalted roads, it is very simple to drive to other towns and villages of Madeira and you can easily go from Calheta to another part of the island without any worries and simply enjoying the beauty of Madeira.
The house is situated in Estreito da Calheta, near the village of Calheta on the south coast of the island:
- 35 minutes drive from Funchal;
- 50 minutes drive from the airport;
- 5 minutes drive to the Vila da Calheta;
