Casa do Retiro is located in the South Coast of Madeira Island, in sunny and peaceful village of Canhas, in Ponta do Sol. It is equidistant from everywhere because it is in the middle of South Coast (wich has the best weather of the island) so it is nearby everything! It is located 5 minutes from center of Ponta do Sol with easy access to beaches and restaurants in the area. It's located 12 km from Paúl da Serra, a perfect local for hiking in Calheta's and Ponta do Sol's water courses called 'levadas'.
