3 BEDROOM VILLA WITH POOL - STUNNING VIEWS, BEAUTIFUL SEASIDE VILLAGE

Photos and Description of this 3 bedroom holiday villa in Calheta - Villa Miradouro(Viewing point)

Superior well equipped villa in Jardim do Mar- great for outdoor dining

10 minutes drive from Calheta, Jardim do Mar is a small romantic seaside village with sea on 3 sides and most houses reached by a maze of paths. Its small hotel, good restaurant and 2 bars are walking distance to the villa which is down steps (5 minutes!) leading to the promenade (10m minutes!) and pebble beach. Enjoy the covered poolside patio furnished for secluded outdoor dining with stunning sea views, the upstairs balcony for the beautiful sunsets and the sound of the waves . All bedrooms and living areas enjoy spectacular views. Downstairs are the large open plan and spacious kitchen and living areas with 4 large pairs of sliding doors leading outside. Upstairs are the bedrooms with two bathrooms (one ensuite) plus a second living room with fitted bar and access to balcony. Equipment is luxury standard - air conditioning in the bedrooms,bar,fully equipped kitchen, ice maker, satellite TV, large built in BBQ etc. Its cliff edge position is stunning but unsuitable for under 10s

Jardim do Mar : Jardim is a historic, unspoilt Madeiran village. It is small and compact - only a few hundred metres from one end to the other - and its highest point is about 50 metres above sea level. The road to the village leads to the car park and also down one side of the village, passing a smart restaurant and on to the jetty. .The village centre has a pretty square with fountains , a small hotel and a beautiful church.

Most villagers reach their homes on foot by the cobbled alleys spreading from the square. These alleys are interspersed by small plots for growing bananas,grapes and vegetables and many houses have pretty gardens with bouganvilleas and hibiscus.The villa sits at the edge of the village with stunning views of the sea and huge cliffs, facing west towards the sunsets over the ocean.The steps down from the villa lead down to a pebbled beach on the one side and on the other side the beginning of the lovely promenade along the sea and around the villag to the jetty

Activities: Western Madeira is very unspoilt with spectacular scenery for sight seeing and walking. Levada walks are exceptional and are generally easy (some can be precipitous!) but other walks usually demanding. A car is needed for nearly all walks.

It is possible to arrange boat trips and even big game fishing from the marina in nearby Calheta, where there is also an art gallery.Calheta has the best sandy beach in Madeira.There are a number of outdoor sea swimming pools notably at Porto Moniz. There is an intimiidating cable car ride from the cliff top just off the West coast road to Porto Moniz.

Further afield there are a number of botanic gardens, museums and a beautful cathedral in Funchal. There is an 18 hole golf course about 45 minutes from the villa and a second 27 hole course further east. Ferry trips from Funchal to the nearby island of Porto Santo can be arranged in Calheta.

However It is still difficult to beat walking around the friendly and beautiful village of Jardim !

Staying in the villa: The owners of the villa frequently stay there and are in regular touch with the two English speaking people who look after guests and the property. One cleans the house and lives just outside the village and the other lives in the viilage and looks after the pool and garden as well as being on hand to answer any questions or sort out any problems.On arrival you will be met in the car park and taken to the villa and shown around and if necessary given a hand with the luggage

The villa is in the village but on a cliff edge. It is very private and and its breath taking sea views are unimpeded on all sides. In order to manage the few steps to the property it is best to keep shopping down to amounts that can be carried in one go and to make some use of the local shop. At night the only sound you can hear is the sea.

There are excellent walking guides available in the villa and we provide our suggestions on the nicest places to visit near the village.

A beautiful villa with outstanding views

The villa is lovely, very tasteful and well equipped. It is nice and private and has the most wonderful views from all aspects of this well designed modern property. We ate in more than usual as the facilities and weather were great and the tourist season really just beginning, but Joe's Bar, which is a short couple of mins walk up from the villa serves excellent reasonably priced food and the staff (particularly Lino who speaks very good English) are very welcoming and friendly. The journey back from the bar is mostly downhill but can be pretty hazadous after a few beers!

The main thing guests need to fully appreciate is the long and uneven path from where you have to park your car through the village to get to the villa. Taking cases to and from was a challenge and you need to consider your supermarket purchases to ensure they are manageable.

We thoroughly enjoyed Madeira with it's lush dramatic scenery and the villa proved a fabulous & peaceful get away which is just what we wanted, even our 11yr old son ranked it as one of his best holidays ever and I would recommend it to couples and families with older children as long as all guests are mobile and fairly fit!

Many thanks Liz & David for a lovely hassel free booking & a wonderful stay.

Owner's Response: Thank for your kind comments. We are delighted that you appreciated the villa so much and enjoyed the beautiful views – and benefited from the convenience of Joes Bar!

We agree that the walk can be a challenge when fully laden (5 minutes when unladen!) and always highlight this point and will offer help with suitcases

Thank you Liz! Thank you David!.. Thank you Matt!

We travel a lot, but this vacation was the best, for sure! Everything was even better than we have expected: Madeira island, weather and, of course, the villa itself. Perfectly placed, perfectly designed, kept in perfect condition. The only thing we regreted - it is not ours... But we will be back for sure!
Thank you Liz! Thank you David!... Thank you Matt!

A beautiful villa in a stunning location

  • Review Submitted: 18-Jun-2013

The photos on the website were irresistible so despite the undeserving comments in the reviews with regard to the walk down to the village we, four mature 60+ ladies, decided to “give it a go”!
We received a very comprehensive guide from the owners which made our journey in the hire car ....via the supermarket...extremely easy and we were also delighted to find Matt awaiting our arrival in the village car park. Pre-warned, we each had rolling suitcases we could manage ourselves, so Matt carried the shopping!
Any hesitations we might have felt were immediately swept away. We arrived to an amazing sunset and this was the first of many - the patio/pool covered dining area with BBQ all face west, with uninterrupted views over the sea. This view is true of all the living area downstairs, and the bedrooms. The whole house has a light bright feel and all modern facilities are available.
It is a heavenly spot for al fresco dinners or barbies but even if it’s rainy and blowing it’s easy to cosy in with the ever fascinating tumultuous sea outside. It is difficult to leave! We had fun though along at the beach bar/cafe at the end of the promenade with the same stunning view. They serve delicious prawns - our favourites - or other simple local food. Joe’s bar with its friendly helpful staff is an easy option in the centre of the village and we found the little village shop, which initially looks very ill stocked, had a lot more hidden behind the counter ...just ask!
It is a delightful village especially as there are no cars - the sound of the waves is as noisy as it gets! The village itself is fun to potter around with all its little alleyways and beautiful flowers.
Madeira itself has plenty to offer and the books and maps on hand in the villa were invaluable.
Would we go again - oh yes.... whilst we are still mobile!

Boa vista - miradouro

  • 5 out of 5
  • Review Submitted: 16-Apr-2013

When first visiting Madeira our view had been caught by a villa pitched high above the sea. We had been fascinated by its size and the terrace with an own swimming pool alike. Looking for a house later that year we exactly found that impressing estate. The descriptions as well as pictures at the internet were inspiring, so we booked right away. Meanwhile we stayed there twice and are planning to return. Could anything be more convincing than this? To this add the uncomplicated and friendly email-contact with David and Liz (the owners of the house).
Of course the internet´s description can´t provide you with all the details, in fact the villa with its splendid views, the terraces plus swimming pool, rooms and equipments are better. Even if you are not a fancied cook, just standing at the kitchen unit preparing a whatever-it-might-be your eye will be automatically caught now and then by the coastline towards Paul de Mar and the steep cliffs. The large windows will help you with an unobstructed view. A last word to the kitchen, one might have been in other houses, maybe villas too but you hardly find such a wide range of porcelain, glasses, cutlery and other useful things which even please the talented cook!
Everyone wants sunshine, blue sky plus a calm, gentle sea when on holidays but even if you are not too lucky and the waves are crushing against the rocky shoreline while stormy winds are howling along the coast and round the house (as it did this Easter) as soon as you close the windows either downstairs in the living room/kitchen or in the sleeping rooms, it is nice and cosy inside and nothing could prevent you from having a nap or a deep, relaxing sleep at night .
Indeed it is a roughly 450 m walk from the car park including some fifty rounded stairs, so even the heaviest luggage will be handled within a short time. And keep in mind there is always Matthew, the ever friendly guiding spirit, who will give you a hand or two on your first way to the house or back to the car park when leaving. Further on he is never too far away to give you some further information at the phone or drop in when needed. Nevertheless you might decide to travel with some small sized baggage only. Washing machine and dryer are waiting at the house to help you in any way.
Whoever had been there for a week or two will like to come again but we shouldn´t praise that hide away too much, otherwise we might not get the chance for another stay due to high demand!

Perfect stay in wonderful villa!

This villa on the edge of the cliff, with breaking waves only 30m from your terrace with pool, feels like heaven on earth.

You will find everything you need, very comfortable, luxurious and spacious.

The best place to be if you want to enjoy and relax on Madeira!

And don't let the short stroll to the carpark fool you - it is worth it and keeps you fit! And halfway up to the carpark/villa, you will find a cold beer in Joe's Bar.

Thank you David, Liz and Matt!
