We are a retired couple living in Northumberland. We bought Vista Atlantico as our holiday home and spend as much time there as our young grandchildren will allow.

Kevin Stephens purchased this villa in 2004

We loved Madeira from our first visit and stayed in this southwest corner several times before deciding this was the area for us. The views are incomparable and the weather just perfect - most of the time.

Rob & Clare Hadden 07 Nov 05: House was very nice and well furnished. Agent was extremely helpful both before and during our stay e.g. arranging baby facilities. From Gail & Greg Rankin 14 Nov 05: The things we most enjoyed were swimming in the Lido in Porto Moniz; exploring Jardim do Mar (beautiful) and lunch at Tar Mar; dinner at Engenho Velho in Arco da Calheta; the BBQ chicken and home made chips at Solar dos Prazeres - so good we had it twice; walking the levada from the Miradouro round the back of Arco (beautiful views); the DVD's - great selection; the guidebooks - very useful. From Eileen & Simon McManus 7 Jan 06: We very much enjoyed our holiday here. We hadn't realised how spectacular the Christmas lights would be and the children thrived in the sunshine. We found the villa excellent, extremely well equipped and the views glorious.
Hayward family March 06: Must visit the bar across the road. Real value for money bar.

Very comfortable, wonderful view

We all enjoyed our holidays at Vista Atlantico. The house has really a wonderful view and is very comfortable. The weather was always fine during our stay and we enjoyed it very much, especially sitting on the balcony in the morning and in the evening.

Thank you very much for wonderful days at Vista Atlantico and for Toni, who always took care of us. We are really glad to have met him.

Best regards from Frankfurt

great property

We had a lovely stay at Vista Atlantico in Calheta. The house is very spacious and well equiped and very clean. The lack of garden is compensated by very large terraces accessible from every room. The view is fantastic and very relaxing. The villa is in a great location, close to everything , though offering peace and quiet. Calheta is for sure the sunniest place on the island and ideally located to visit the west and north coast of Madeira. The owners were very helpful whilst arranging the booking. The people who welcomed us were also very friendly and reliable. I can recommend this property without any reservation.

See a video tour of Vista Atlantico: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=xWpMbq1kEE0 Madeira's first ever sandy beach is at Calheta and a new marina there has waterside bars and restaurants for a romantic sunset supper. Madeira's famous levada system offers a tranquil walking experience through breathtaking scenery and the nearest levada walk is only minutes from Vista Atlantico. Backed by soaring mountains and overlooking the azure Atlantic the Calheta area gives a taste of the real Madeira with its friendly people, superb fish restaurants, amazing scenery and cascades of flowers at all times of the year. Funchal is only 30 minutes away.

Arco da Calheta is surrounded by an amphitheatre or arc of mountains with paragliders soaring on the air currents. It has a proper village centre a few minutes walk away with a cafe terrace above the sea and the village church. A short drive will take you to the plateau of Paul de Serra where there are more levada walks at Rabaçal with more amazing vistas.

Other Activities: Levada walking

Notes:
The double bedroom is ensuite and a family bathroom serves the other two bedrooms. All three bedrooms open directly onto the terrace which runs around the house. The bedrooms are on the lower floor but since the house (like many Madeiran houses) is built into a hillside the bedrooms are still high above the neighbouring land and enjoy the same views as upstairs. All the bedrooms have fully fitted wardrobes with ample hangers and plenty of space. The main entrance opens into the lounge-diner area with the kitchen and a WC off. The kitchen opens into the garage so you can park your car and step straight into the house. There is a small balcony off the dining area suitable for breakfasting. The stairs lead down from the dining area and are protected by a child gate. Downstairs there is a utility area with a washer-dryer, an ironing board and iron and a clothes airer. Electric heaters and hot water bottles are provided for the winter months when the evenings can be cool.
