About Kevin Stephens

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

Why Kevin Stephens chose Calheta

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.

wonderful villa

  • 5 out of 5
From the minute that we were met by the key holder to leaving we had a wonderful stay at this beautiful villa. It's much larger than it looks on the photos and it really feels like a home. Kevin's maps and details sent to us before we set off were excellent. We only got lost once. The villa is spotless and the bathrooms are a good size. There is all the equipment that you require ion the kitchen....although I must admit I never used the cooker, preferring to go out for dinner every night. There are various excellent restaurants around .We ate at the local hotel Engenho Velho in the village and also the pizzeria in the next village up the hill.The views from all the windows are amazing and it's great to sit out on the verandas in the sun. The villa gets the sun from about 10 am till the sunset. We travelled easily to Funchal and the west coast. We also did 3 Levada walks. This has been one of our favourite holidays and we would recommend it to all our friends.

great property

  • 5 out of 5
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.

wunderbarer Blick über Dorf und Meer

  • 5 out of 5
Von beiden Balkonen, dem Esszimmer und den Schlafzimmern hat man einen wunderbar weiten Blick über Landschaft und Meer. Vom Haus aus erreicht man per Auto rasch Wandergebiete, das Meer, Einkaufsmöglichkeiten oder gute Restaurants. Alles Notwendige ist im Haus vorhanden. Die Infos von Kevin und die Kontakte mit seinen Helfern vor Ort waren immer unterstützend und freundlich.

best sea view ever!!!!

  • 5 out of 5
Vom 20.-27.2. 2014 haben wir eine wunderschöne Woche in der gut ausgestatteten, geräumigen und gemütlichen Vista Atlantico verbracht. Der Meerblick ist grandios und die Lage des Hauses lässt (mit Auto) keine Wünschen offen. Mit besten Tipps des Vermieters ausgestattet, sowie einer ausführlichen Anreisebeschreibung, haben wir die Unterkunft schnell erreicht, uns vor Ort sehr gut zurechtgefunden und tolle Tageswanderungen auf der Insel unternommen. Wir wurden herzlich in Empfang genommen und bekamen weitere wertvolle Tipps, wie z.B. das Fischrestaurant Poita in Madalena do mar oder das Restaurant San Antonio in Estreito de Camera de Lobos, wo man gut Espetadas essen kann...
Im Haus findet man auch ein Buch mit allen wichtigen Informationen und Kontaktnummern, sowie Ideen für Ausflüge etc.
Überhaupt war die ganze Abwicklung einwandfrei, alles sehr gut organisiert und zuvorkommend!
Wir waren nur zu zweit in dem Haus und haben uns super wohlgefühlt, aber man hat dort auch mit 6 Personen genug Platz.
Wir können die Unterkunft uneingeschränkt weiterempfehlen!

Wohlfühlobjekt, mit toller Aussicht

  • 5 out of 5
Der Kontakt zum Vermieter verlief sehr gut. Es wurde eine brauchbare Anfahrtsbeschreibung zugesandt und wir wurden von einer sehr freundlichen Verwalterin, des wirklich schön anzusehenden Hauses empfangen.
Sie zeigte uns die sehr schön ausgestatteten Räumlichkeiten. Wirklich alle Räume waren penibel gereinigt. Man hat eine tolle Aussicht auf den Atlantik !
Ein Auto ist unbedingt erforderlich !
Wir waren eine Woche dort und haben wirklich viel gesehen.
Zum Essen haben wir gerne ein Restaurant an der Küstenstraße besucht. Tolle Fisch-Fleischgerichte. Zu Empfehlen wäre der Degenfisch.
Ich kann dieses Objekt nur weiterempfehlen.
Wir hoffen. dass wir baldigst dort mal wieder eine schöne Zeit verbringen können.

Von hieraus Dank an den Vermieter.

Belle villa et bonne situation

  • 4 out of 5
Nous sommes restés une semaine à "Vista Atlanttico" : la villa est très agréable, spacieuse, propre, confortable et fonctionnelle et vraiment une très belle vue sur l'océan(elle est prévue pour 6 personnes mais nous avons pu la louer bien que nous n'étions que deux).
La personne qui nous accueille à l'arrivée est charmante et nous pouvons la contacter facilement si il y a un moindre souci d'intendance.
Nous avons fait beaucoup de randonnées (en partant relativement tôt le matin car les nuages arrivent vite sur les sommets vers midi) et il y a une plage à 5mn en voiture.

Séjour très agréable et à recommander

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.
