Overview

Overview

Photos and Description of this 2 bedroom holiday villa in Calheta - Casa Madrinha

2 bed, 3 bath, very private, large terrace, gardens, stunning views, car port

Completed in 2008 to a very high standard, this house (mostly ground floor) was built for comfort and as much outdoor living as possible. You'll be surprised and delighted by the space and light both inside and out, and by the breathtaking views over the village to the Atlantic. The private driveway leads into a large courtyard with carport and access to the hacienda, pool and terrace area. Here you have complete privacy for sunbathing, swimming and eating, and the pool has a constant depth of 1.40 metres. The large and superbly-equipped Miele kitchen is the first room you come to, and from there an archway opens into a huge sitting/dining room with comfy sofas and armchairs, dining table, floor-to-ceiling double glazed windows, 40 inch LED TV, an open log fire and under floor heating for winter. Beyond is the study (a child can sleep here on a Z-bed) and, opposite, a guest WC/shower room. Further on is the en-suite double bedroom (ideal for anyone with mobility difficulties).

Upstairs, the master bedroom with en-suite shower room has a large balcony.

Guestbook comments from the manager

Gwych! Bendigedig! Ardderchog! Gret! Hyfryd! Da iawn! Which, being interpreted from the Welsh, is: Amazing, wonderful, excellent, great, beautiful, really very good !!

After a very stressful year for all of us, this peaceful home has been a little paradise. We came here to celebrate the year of our Ruby Weddings and we have not been disappointed. We leave with som many lovely memories. We have had a feast of delights in this perfectly situated villa, and would thoroughly recommend it.

With many thanks

Beautiful house and location

  • 5 out of 5
Title says it all. Would happily return, and hope to do so soon. This house does not feel like a holiday let, but a real home. Plenty of space outside, which can be unusual in Madeira, so no need or want to go anywhere else unless you want to explore. You can get all you need at the mini-market nearby in Calheta, where there are also reasonable restaurants, but buy a parking ticket or you will get a (small) fine. Really happy to have found this real gem.

You do need a car to make the most of the location.

A perfect hideaway

  • 5 out of 5
With lots of expectations we came to Madeira to visit this beautiful place. Being back in Germany, we know what we are missing: A beautiful house in a perfect surrounding with a superb pool and terrace. Like i wrote in the guest book: This can be Madeira`s best kept secret - even if it is published here on the web. Lucky, the "normal" tourists don`t seek for such a place. Instead they prefer to stay in the high rising hotel at the Lido in Funchal, which is awful i think ! Anyway, we had a great time here and enjoyed everything around the house and on the island. Thanks to Vanda, which is a perfect host.

To sum up: there might be other houses more stylish or newer, but there`s none such big, with such a view and that charming in Arco de Calheta.

All the best Tony and Judith !

Kind Regards
Stephan

welcoming home from home

  • 5 out of 5
It was very difficult to put in writing our wonderful 4 week stay in this villa. We had a fantastic time with every comfort possible. Vanda was a great help too and looked after us extremely well. Home from Home. We were blessed with good weather and out more or less every day walking the Levadas. Madeirans are so friendly and chatted to many 'locals' (in the best way possible considering we couldn't speak portuguese) We also walked around paul de serra and rabacal. Brilliant. We will be back! Thank you very much Tony and Judith, your villa is wonderful.

Perfect home

  • 5 out of 5
We spent a nice week here on Madeira. Unfortunately the weather wasn’t as good as we expected. A few days it rained a lot so we couldn’t see as much as we wanted but what we have seen was very beautiful.
Highlights were a hike to the “25 Fontes”, cute cows with their calves on the road at 1400m elevation and 10m visibility and, during a boat trip on the Atlantic, dolphins.
Thanks to your warm and perfect house even the rainy days were comfortable. Overall we had a great time. Thank you so much.

Great holiday, beautiful island, lovely house

  • 5 out of 5
25 August – 8 September
We spent a wonderful relaxing 14 days in your lovely home. Upon arrival we enjoyed a lovely beef lasagne from Paula – your food suggestions are a very welcome extra!
Thank you for the hiking and dining out tips. Our favourite hikes were the Ponta de Sao Lorenco and Pico Ruivo. After a day out in the heat – great weather throughout – it was a relief to cool off in the pool and hang around the house.
Overall – a great holiday, beautiful island and very friendly people.
Best regards,

Casa Madrinha - a perfect home from home

  • 5 out of 5
What a wonderful place to celebrate our 44th wedding anniversary – and the last 19 have been on Madeira. Without exaggeration, this house is the most pleasant, best designed and welcoming place we have stayed; it really has been sharing a home. Ideal central island location for Levada walkers and island sight-seeing.

Car: necessary

A perfect holiday destination, well away from the hustle and bustle of the main tourist areas on Madeira. Situated 250 metres above sea level and accessed by its own driveway, Casa Madrinha sits privately and with stunning views on a terrace in the pretty, rural village of Calheta, next to banana plantations and small holdings. Thanks to the new road system you can drive round the whole island in a day so the island's top attractions, including Funchal, are within easy reach. Only 5 minutes' drive brings you to Calheta with its protected beach of golden sand, a marina offering dolphin/whale watching excursions and deep sea fishing boats for charter, a hotel, supermarket, bank, art gallery and good choice of restaurants; or 15 minutes away you have the laurel, levada and waterfall wonderland of Rabaçal and the wide open expanses of the Paul da Serra - fantastic walking terrain. Car hire is necessary to enjoy all that this area has to offer and to explore this beautiful island
