Photos and Description of this 3 bedroom holiday villa in Calheta - Casa Rosada
Modern 3 bed/2 bathrooms, large terraces, easy access to excellent walking
The perfect holiday destination. Casa Rosada is well away from the bustle of Funchal, though thanks to the new road system everywhere is now within easy reach. Moreover, some of the island’s top attractions are only a short drive away: within ten minutes you can be on Madeira’s largest golden sandy beach at Calheta, which also has a large marina and plenty of restaurants; or 15 minutes will bring you to the laurel, levada and waterfall wonderland of Rabaçal and the wide open expanses of the Paùl da Serra. Arco da Calheta is served by buses (15-minute steep walk to bus-stops), but car hire is highly recommended to enjoy all the area has to offer.
The spacious living/dining room has comfy seating for 6, a TV, DVD player, CD player/radio with USB input for mp3 players & WiFi. There is a wood-burning stove, plus portable oil-filled electric radiators for winter evenings.
The kitchen is equipped with a gas hob and electric fan-assisted oven, fridge/freezer, microwave/grill, electric toaster & kettle and plenty of cooking utensils, crockery, cutlery and glassware. A washing machine, dryer, iron and ironing board are in the utility room with plenty of drying space in the garage. There is a guest WC on the ground floor.
The three bedrooms, all with stunning views, can accommodate up to 6 guests + infant in a cot. Master double bedroom + en-suite shower room with WC; bedroom 2 has a double bed; bedroom 3 has 2 single beds. Occupants of these two bedrooms share the family shower room with WC. Bed linen and towels are provided and changed weekly. A hairdryer is provided. A cot and high chair are available on request.
The villa is in a quiet area on a narrow lane with only a few houses beyond. It has an east-facing garden and upstairs balcony, a large south-facing patio area, panoramic sea and mountain views in all directions and a traditional built-in BBQ. There is private parking within the front gate.

Today we are sitting here in a storm in Casa Rosada – great house. Had several sun-drenched evenings on the terrace.
The kitchen here is well equipped and the location of the house has allowed us to have many beautiful walks in the area.]
