Photos and Description of this 3 bedroom holiday villa in Calheta - Quinta das Lagartixas

Accommodates 4 comfortably, sleeps up to 6

The villa and property has 180 degrees sea view. The 100 year old stone house was rebuilt and modernized in 2007, while retaining its simplicity and modesty. NB The Google map satellite picture was taken before the rebuilding. Upstairs the house has a joint living room/dining room/kitchen, a bathroom and a large bedroom, and downstairs two small bedrooms. All rooms have sea view and lead out to terraces. There is a stereo, dvd player, several films and a monitor. Linen and towels provided. The pool is 3 by 6 meters, not heated. There are several terraces for dining and sunbathing: a roofed one outside the kitchen, one old and one new outside upper bedroom, one under grapevine outside lower bedrooms, and one around the pool. The surroundings consist of farming terraces and flower gardens. The road is reached by private stairs (60 steps). Parking on road about 100 metres away from top of stairs. The inside of the house is rustic and functional, while the outside is spacious and private with many semi-tropical plants.

Suitability:
  • Long-term Renters Welcome
  • non smoking only

Guestbook comments from the owner

Since 2 weeks we are back from our holiday in Madeira. I must not forget to tell you how beautiful it was in your House in Fajã da ovelha. We have been warmly received by Jose and Maria. We have spent unique and beautiful days even if the weather was not so great. After a short time we have felt us as zuhaus at home and at the end of the week I would have phoned almost you, to extend one week. But we have kept us there on our plan. Thanks again and we will come back next year safely. Warm regards from Hamburg! Klaus and Andrea :) glücklich

Great place to relax

  • 5 out of 5
We enjoyed our stay very much. It's a very quite and comfortable place with a great view over the ocean and beautiful sunsets, set in the middle of a small village away from the main route. The pictures match exactly the setting, even the water in the pool looked absolutely clean and fresh, - but we didn't use it because of the overall temperatures.
The small shop in the village provides all emergency stuff, but to survive you need a car to go shopping in a supermarket, - p.e. in Prazeeres only a 10 minutes drive away and open every day 7:00 - 23:00.
The support of the owner could not have been better and we can recommend this place to anybody who is searching for a place on their own in a small village, far away from big hotels and noisy streets.

Wonderfull stay in this House

  • 5 out of 5
This sunny house is clean, confortable, well located in a beautiful and really quiet village. We spent fantastic holidays in this house, from where we used to see the sunset over the ocean. Thank You so much.

Lovely house with a breathtaking view

  • 5 out of 5
We had a wonderful time on Madeira - a wonderful island with friendly and relaxed people. We found the tranquility we were looking for. All of us loved the spacious and simple house. The kids had their own territory downstairs and we enjoyed the bedroom view the wonderful view on the Atlantic - it makes you feel relaxed immediately and you can literally see that the earth is round. Unfortunately we could not make use of the pool too often as wind and weather did not permit it - end of March is not summer yet - but that did not spoil our holiday at all as you can drive quickly to Calheta where there is a nice sandy beach and there are so many things to see and explore on Madeira. You can start hiking just from the house - not with small children though, but there are enough walks nearby along the little channels.
We appreciated the quiet surroundings and the beauty of the landscape in Faja de Ovelha. The west of Madeira is much more rural and authentic than the area around Funchal. At the same time you are within easy reach of all facilities such as supermarkets - a tiny one with basics in Faja and bigger ones in 15 minutes drive - banks, etc.
Thank you for a brilliant holiday where we got away from everything.

Owner's Response: Dear Alexander. You were our first guests from HomeAway holiday-rentals and we are very happy to hear that you had a good time. Our neighbours and caretakers Jose and Maria also told us how your children loved playing with their animals. Hope to see you again sometime. Jan

Ein unglaublicher Blick in völliger Ruhe

  • 5 out of 5
Wer die Ruhe sucht, ist hier absolut richtig. Obwohl das Haus „mitten“ im Dorf liegt, herrscht hier (bis auf ab und zu mal Hundegebell) die absolute Ruhe. Der Blick ist gigantisch, man kann sich gar nicht daran satt sehen. Sogar wenn man kocht, hat man aus der Küche einen wahnsinnigen Atlantik-Blick.
Die Veranda verfügt mittlerweile (anders als auf den aktuellen Bildern) über eine teilweise Verglasung, so dass man auch an kühleren Tagen draußen essen und später den Sonnenuntergang genießen kann.
Das Häuschen ist mit allem, was man braucht, ausgestattet und sehr gemütlich. Im Bad gibt es mehr als ausreichend Ablagefläche.
Die Matratze im Hauptschlafzimmer ist sehr gut, so dass man auch trotz gemeinschaftlicher Matratze sehr gut schlafen kann.
Der Pool war jeden Morgen wie von Zauberhand (vermutlich Josés?) super sauber.
Allerdings ist es für gehbehinderte nicht geeignet, da der Parkplatz ganz paar Meter entfernt ist und über leichte Steigerungen verfügt und man einige Treppen steigen muss.

Als Tipp für alle, die das Haus mieten: unbedingt in Parzeres in das Prazeres Rurais gehen, dort gibt es den besten Espetada und den besten Espada. Nicht von der auf den ersten Blick nicht so schönen Lage abschrecken lassen!!!!

Magnifique séjour dans cette maison

  • 5 out of 5
We have beautiful holiday past in your lovely home! (Loss of sight) sea, the swimming pool, flowers, vegetables, odours, calm... This has helped us to spend unforgettable holidays. Your neighbors José and Maria know perfectly be discreet and attentive at the same time, we also spend very good times with them. This kindness of neighbours, the palpable nature everywhere, this exceptional view and the relaxing calm us were delighted for two weeks. Thank you very much.

Located on the sunny side of the island, Faja da Ovelha is a small village 15 minutes West of Calheta and its beach. Several famous levada hikes easily accessible from the villa. Very peaceful surroundings with 180 degree sea view and surrounded by farming terraces. Private stairs (60 steps) from villa to road and parking. 2 restaurants within 20 minutes lovely walk (2mins drive) and a small bar and shop next to church in the village. 10 minutes drive to the nearest fishing village. Easy access to the mountains and the North of the Island.
