winter months in arco da caltheta

  • 4 out of 5
we would use this property again,but only if there was better heating facilities for the winter months, although the log fire helped and was lovely to sit by on the not so comfey settee and chairs (,they definitely need upgrading). For visitors using this property in the Summer months it is probably as good as you will get. The views are outstanding and the house has all you could wish for..Situated well up in the mountains next to goats,cows and locals.with walks around the nearby villages essential (.providing you are quite fit). Thoroughly recommend for a getaway break.

Owner's Response: Thank you very much for your review, we can supply extra radiators if the weather is to cold for you, this winter has been one of the worst in Madeira for 40 years, and we even had another heavey fall of snow last week (2nd March) over the mountains which could be seen from the sea front in Funchal.
We are pleased you enjoyed your holiday, and the walks and the views and hope to see you back in Madeira again when its a little warmer.

A lovely house in a peaceful, beautiful location

  • 5 out of 5
We stayed at the house at the end of April, and having toured around much of the island, we agreed that we had chosen extremely well by renting this property. The views out to the ocean are amazing, and sitting out on the veranda eating breakfast with the Atlantic right in front of you is a wonderful experience.

Inside the house Edgar and his wife have thought of everything, and pretty much anything you need or might need is provided such as towels, utensils, crockery, flip flops etc. Edgar is a lovely friendly gentleman with a great sense of humour, who went out of this way to help us when we needed a lift to and from the airport.

Arco da Calheta is a lovely village, and in the house nestled on the cliff, you are surrounded by greenery. The houses in the village are very well maintained, with gardens full of bright flowers. The area is so nice and peaceful, you can actually hear yourself think, so if you want to get away from the hustle and bustle of city life, I can wholeheartedly recommend this property. We liked it so much we even stayed in to eat our evening meal on a few occasions, out on the veranda. There is also a levada nearby if you feel like a walk.

If you do wish to venture out though, there is a great restaurant called Estalagem Engenho Velho in Arco Da Calheta. Calheta Vila is also nearby, and a bus goes to Funchal from Arco also. All in all this holiday was what we needed and the property was perfect for a week of pure relaxation.

2011 Winter Holiday in Arco da Calheta

  • 4 out of 5
Must agree with the review of B&S of Worstershire UK that the heating in this villa is not suitable for winter lets. The first few days we where there it was raining & windy, the villa was cold & drafty the log fire although very nice it is not instant & the only 1 little radiator wasn't adequate to heat any of the rooms. The good points, it is a lovely clean & spacious villa with excellent views over the village to the sea. A well equiped kitchen with every thing you need (except no kettle) which we found strange. Overall this lovely villa in a lovely location. We will return again but not in the winter months.

Owner's Response: Thank you for your opinion on that is very pleasent, I will address the kettle as soon as possible, on the climate is not easy for me to explain since It is not usual in our homes or rarely a heating system, because we have a climate mediterraneo that is tropical looking, we have had many changes in our climate but I believe not only in Madeira Island as also in other places
True, the house is very cool and breezy, but the summer makes it very pleasent, thought the winter blankets of feathers would warm enough, has also informed that Madeira wine, or red that would help too .. ah ahah.(near the fireplace)
Thank you very much

Fantastic, relaxing stay!

  • 5 out of 5
Having returned from Madeira, we would like to express our thanks for Edgar's warm welcome and the nice contacts by email before the arrival.
We had a fabulous time in Casa Coelha and were so impressed with the potlessly clean house, location and all of the facilities provided:
The kitchen was very well equipped (fridge/freezer, oven, microwave, ceramic hob, dishwasher, kettle, mixer and much of crockery and cutlery), bathrooms were a wow, lounge with fireplace and flatscreen TV, spacious upper bedroom with a huge king size bed, washing machine, Wi-Fi and the large terrace overlooking the sea allowed us to enjoy the sunshine, read a book or simply watching the world go by ... situated on the hillside of Arco da Calheta with a peaceful rural outlook.
Perfect area and great base for everything. Nearby beach and supermarket at Calheta, good food in Pizzeria Naye at Loreto. We loved the levada and mountain walks and a Paragliding Tandem flight (starting from Canhas and landing on the pebbled beach of Madalena do Mar) - a great experience!
We can't think of any suggestions for improvement for Casa Coelha - it has everything you need for a great stay! You really have made it into a home from home.
We stayed for 1 month and it was a heaven of peace and quiet. What a lovely relaxing break. In all respects EXCELLENT.
Thank you for a fantastic holiday - we thoroughly enjoyed it to the fullest!
We would love to come back again and wouldn't hesitate to recommend your lovely house.

Beste Aussichten für einen perfekten Urlaub!

  • 5 out of 5
Was für ein Service von Anfang an: Der nette Vermieter und seine Frau stehen mit dem Mietwagen am Flughafen Funchal parat und fahren voraus. Durch zahllose Tunnels, bergauf und bergab und zu guter Letzt ein kurzes steiles Sträßchen hoch. Wie so oft, ist auch hier der steile Weg von Erfolg gekrönt: Inmitten kleiner Bauernanwesen steht unser Ferienhaus und eröffnet einen sensationellen Blick auf den Atlantik. Die Terrasse ist riesig, genau wie die flankierenden Palmen, die daheim trotz liebevoller Pflege über ein Zwergendasein nicht hinauswachsen wollen. Und riesig ist auch die Ausstattung der Küche: wer wollte, könnte hier problemlos zehn Leute bekochen und bewirten. Zwei Schlafzimmer und zwei Bäder machen das Ferienhausglück für uns perfekt, wobei der Blick vom oberen Schlafzimmer mit dem unfassbar großen Bett sogar noch etwas besser ist als der von der Terrasse.
Von hier aus lässt sich die Insel bestens erkunden, zahlreiche Wege führen in die wunderbarsten Landschaften. Im Nu ist man auch unten im Supermarkt von Calheta, wo man so ziemlich alles bekommt, was lecker ist. Auch frischen Fisch und das köstliche zarte Rindfleisch von Madeira. Und wem mal nicht nach kochen ist, der löst sich ausnahmsweise von der herrlichen Aussicht und geht oder fährt in 5 Minuten nach Loret, wo die Pizzeria Naye nicht nur mit leckerer Pizza aufwartet.
Wir haben uns zwei Wochen lang hier rundum ausgesprochen wohl gefühlt!

late summer feeling

  • 4 out of 5
We are two couples from Germany and we stayed in the Casa Coelha for a fortnight mid of October 2011.

Edgar, the pretty owner of the Casa Coulha welcomed us at the airport with his own car and with the Ford Fiesta we rent from him and guided us to the Casa Coelha, app. 40 km away from the airport.

On this trip we could for the first time enjoy Madeira’s wonderful atmosphere and we could farmiliarize with driving through endless long and various tunnels in the next two weeks.

Next we had to learn on our way to the Casa Coelha in Arco de Calheta that you should not fear driving tight and extremely steep alleys.

The quiet place on the hillside of Arco da Calheta, where Casa Coelha is located is in deed a beautiful place, with a dreamlike view to the ocean, app. 1,5 km away (linear distance) but already on an alitude of 370 meters.

We confirm that the house is actually in a very excellent and clean condition – we really missed nothing. The Casa Coelha is very recommendable.

Calheta is a quiet rural place and for sure – or at least hopefully - it will remain so in the next years. The new sand beach is very neat – but likely to small to attract mass tourism.

But Calheta is ideal for individual tourism. Very close to Rabacal and a good basis to explore the whole island in all directions with a sufficient infrastructure at the beach.

After two wonderful weeks, which we spend, all over the island, at Calheta beach or on the very nice terrace of the Casa Coelha, we were very blue to leave this lovely place and to go back to Germany and to our work.

At the end, Edgar our nice host came over from Funchal, picked us up again and saved us from the problem, that a Ford Fiesta for four people with full baggage is simply to small.

Founded in 1572, the parish of Arco da Calheta is set between the mountains and got its name from the surrounding hills and its proximity to the parish of Calheta. After the discovery of the island this parish was one of the first to be submitted to huge agricultural explorations, giving origin to extensive lands with noble houses, chapels and cultivated areas.

The busiest time of the year is the 7th and the 8th of September when the parish celebrates its annual procession and a fair to honour the patron saint São Braz

The Beach Area of Calheta is a short drive down through the rolling countryside, and boasts golden sandy beaches, and a lovely Marina with cafes and restaurants.

Funchal is a 25 minute drive to the East of Calheta and is Madeira Capital. Funchal is located in an absolutely unique area. The amphitheatre of Funchal city begins at the harbour and rises almost 1200 m high on gentle slopes.This provides a natural shelter and was what once attracted the first settlers
