Holiday Rental House

The traditional doors lead to the bijou living space, which leads into the kitchen and the protected barbecue area where you will find a further table and chairs and a second shower room. The staircase takes you up to a landing and small seating area with a window looking out to the fantastic view of the coastline.

Perfect for those that wish to experience the traditional Madeira lifestyle and be close to the sandy beach of Calheta as well as having access to the beautiful Madeira countryside. The traditional doors lead to the bijou living space, which leads into the kitchen and the protected barbecue area where you will find a further table and chairs and a second shower room. The staircase takes you up to a landing and small seating area with a window looking out to the fantastic view of the coastline. The master double bedroom and second twin bedroom are on the first floor and share the main bathroom. The mature garden is filled with typical Madeiran plants and set on various levels, creating perfect sunbathing conditions - sunbeds are provided. The well-equipped kitchen has a 4-ring gas hob and oven, microwave, electric coffee maker and kettle, toaster, juice maker and toasted sandwich maker. Outside door leads to the barbecue area, where you will find a fitted brick barbecue and a further table and chairs. There are many walks around Calheta and easy access to the plateau of Paul da Serra, with its many levada walks, makes this villa perfectly located for walking in Madeira and for enjoying a lovely holiday surrounded by the beautiful Madeira countryside. Lounge/Dining: Seating area and dining table, cable TV, wi-fi router. Leads to the kitchen and through French doors to the covered outside area. There is a separate laundry room, with a washing machine, iron and ironing board. The garden is mature and filed with typical plants from Madeira. A hammock is perfectly placed for some serious relaxation with views! The villa is accessed via a short pedestrian pathway. Parking is on the road that is a dead-end and has little traffic. Cleaning and linen change is provided every 7 days. All linen and towels are provided, including towels for the swimming pool. Should you require it, the sofa on the landing opens up into an extra bed. There is free wi-fi connection in the living area. A hire car is recommended. A few minutes by car will take you to the resort town of Calheta, which, with its man-made golden beaches, is popular with tourists and locals alike. There is a beautiful marina and a good choice of bars and restaurants. There is a handful of boutique shops and a good supermarket. Calheta is famous for producing the best white rum 'Aguardente', a special ingredient of the typical Madeiran drink 'Poncha'. If you are interested in knowing how the white rum is made, we recommend a tour of the 'Engenho da Calheta' the rum distillery where you can wander around and sample the produce. Centro das Artes Casa da Mudas is a new centre located at the edge of a cliff overlooking the sea and was built to host superb art exhibitions, musical performances and other events. Madeira is a paradise for those who enjoy walking and hiking, and Arco da Calheta is ideally situated, having easy access to the road network and most places on the island. Within 15 minutes are the beaches at Ponta do Sol and Ribeira Brava, the esplanades at Jardim do Mar and Paul do Mar, the laurasilva forest of Madeira (a UNESCO world heritage site - http://whc.**********/en/list/934) and the moonlike landscape of Paul da Serra (1500 meters). An easy 30 minute drive brings you to the capital, Funchal.

Choose your favourite among the three terraces and enjoy the view on the Atlantic ocean, as we did. The stone house and garden are well kept and offer more than enough space for four people. There is no pool, but a shower in the garden....More
