Looking for a walk?: As Mountain Guide and native of this fascinating island, I gathered several themes and activities to offer and share with the customer such as: doing private guiding or advising you in doing short or long walking distances in your mountains or famous Levadas, transfers to take and to bring back after the walks, renting a car for one or more days, mountain biking, whale/dolphins or bird watching, jeep expeditions or even a tour around the island. Basically, my mission here is to provide you the most exciting and enjoyable holiday that you can have in Madeira!

About Bruno Fontes
I was born and raised in the Madeira and I work as a mountain guide. Being so, I can explain and show to my clients all the best tracks for walking /trekking in this magical Island.
Bruno Fontes purchased this apartment in 2012
Why Bruno Fontes chose Calheta
With all my years of experience working and dealing with people from all Nationalities I decided to put together some ideas and contrasts and come up with ‘House Fontes’. Knowing Madeira almost like the palm of my hands I decided to construct my house here in Calheta because of the easy going style of living, from being preserved from big masses and her rural aspect and surrounding sceneries and views.
What makes this apartment unique
As unique benefit you’ll be able to share and to be part of the rural way of living of this town surrounded with cultivated gardens and a vineyard to make the famous Madeira Wine just in front of the house. Our main host will be our dog called ‘Jakie’ who definitely will come to see you every morning and every afternoon in the garden. In our house you can profit from the swing on the front porch, the pond in the garden with the waterfall and if you like cooking I’ll be able to use the entire aromatic herbs you can from our garden. On the top of it we’re offering you a trip on a jeep through Eucalyptus and Mimosa forests and on the tracks where you’ll never dare to go with a normal car. Just be ready for some sense of adventure and leave the rest for us!
