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.
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.

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.
