Overview

Photos and Description of this 1 bedroom holiday apartment in Calheta - House Fontes

Studio Flat with 90m2 and esplanade with some amazing views

The 'House Fontes' was designed and constructed in general for all types of clients being them passionate about nature, landscapes, hiking, trekking, water sports or just for a relaxing stay in a very charming and quiet area of Calheta.

Having an area of approximately 90m2 this studio flat has also an esplanade to be the envy of any nature and landscaping lover and also a place where we can sun bath any time of the day or just to assist to one of the best sun sets on the island. The spaces are shared with different combinations of light and environments ranging between modern and rustic styles.

The vineyards with its own wine press and cellar : Being this apartment surrounded by beautiful vineyards to make the famous Madeira Wine and cultivated terraces its geographical location is also perfectly accessible to all kinds of shops, restaurants, bars, local museums and a wonderful sandy beach just a few minutes away not to mention as well one of the best preserved and natural sites for walking and hiking trails in the whole island of Madeira.

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!

Un excellent choix!!

  • 5 out of 5
Très bel appartement, parfaitement équipé (il y a même un ordinateur portable) et très grand (pour 2 personnes bien sur). Il est de plus idéalement situé vous visiter toute la partie ouest et le centre de Madère.
Situé sur la petite route qui relie Calheta à Rabacal, il permet d'atteindre rapidement et très facilement les nombreuses randonnées aux alentours de Rabacal et Paul da Serra. Commerces également très proches en voiture.
Enfin un très grand merci à Bruno, pour son accueil, sa gentillesse et ses conseils pour les randos.
De quoi rendre le séjour encore plus agréable.

A perfect space to relax and enjoy

  • 5 out of 5
We thoroughly enjoyed our 5 day stay with Bruno and were extremely sad to leave Madeira behind. Bruno was so helpful with all the planning of the surprise holiday for my Fiancé's 30th Birthday. The accommodation was a perfect home-from-home to retreat to and relax after exciting days exploring the island, and provided everything we could need. After our arrival Bruno shared some madeira wine with us and set us a fantastic itinerary for the week and also recommended a couple of nice spots to eat. Our favourite day was walking up to Pico Grande - not for the faint hearted! On our last day we enjoyed the thrilling Jeep ride and we always loved saying hello to Jack the lovely small dog.

I would give this more than 5 stars if I could

  • 5 out of 5
This apartment is everything it says on the website, it was an absolute delight, spotlessly clean with fresh decor, furnished to a very high standard and had absolutely everything we needed. It's all you could ever ask for and more in a holiday apartment. It's so close to all the shops, bars, marina and the beach. Bruno is the most helpful person you could wish for, nothing is too much trouble and he provides the best information pack you will ever need and he is always ready to help via email if you have any questions. So if you want a good base for touring or a quiet space to recharge your batteries, surfing, sailing, cycling, walking or doing nothing this really is the place to come. We have never stayed in a place where the minute you walk through the door you feel so at home except here. Our best accommodation experience ever! We're happy to endorse your place, it really is luxurious and we'd be pleased to stay there again. So go on, get booking straight away - book early to avoid disappointment.

We have used Holiday-Rentals many times over the years and this has been by far the best holiday accomodation we have ever stayed in, the house is spacious and well furnished and the location is pretty good too - 5 minutes drive from the centre, supermarket, shops and restaurants, although you need to go down and up to get there if you take the shortest route. Bruno is the most helpful person you could wish for, nothing is too much trouble and he provides the best information pack you will ever need and he is always ready to help via email if you have any questions. So if you want a good base for touring or a quiet space to recharge your batteries, surfing, sailing, cycling, walking or doing nothing this really is the place to come. We have never stayed in a place where the minute you walk through the door you feel so at home except here.The apartment was an absolute delight, spotlessly clean with fresh decor, furnished to a very high standard and had absolutely everything we needed, the view from the balcony is great and you can sit there for hours enjoying the sun and the views. I would highly recommend this apartment to anyone. We will most definitely be back soon.

Schöner Aufenthalt

  • 5 out of 5
Wir haben hier zwei Wochen verbracht und waren sehr zufrieden. Die Wohnung ist geräumig und gut ausgestattet mit einer herrlichen Terrasse und einem super Ausblick. Bruno gibt viele Tipps und kümmert sich um seine Gäste. Wer einen authentischen Urlaub machen möchte, ist hier sehr gut aufgehoben.

We`ve been here for two weeks and were totally satisfied. The apartment is spacious with all the things you need. It has a very nice patio with a great view over Calheta. Bruno will give you a lot of information about the island and takes care of everything. I can recommend this stay for everyone who wants to have an authentic holiday.

LOCATION ET SEJOUR TRES AGREABLE

  • 5 out of 5
Nous avons passé une dizaine de jours dans ce studio très confortable, d'une propreté impeccable et magnifiquement décoré avec une vue splendide. La terrasse verdoyante et fleurie où nous déjeunions tous les matins est un plus très appréciable. Bruno parle le français à la perfection ce qui est fort appréciable égalemement. Il nous a conseillé très gentiment pour nos randonnées et la découverte de son île. Plusieurs belles randonnées le long des levadas sont à proximité. Nous garderons un excellent souvenir de ces vacances et conseillons sans aucune hésitation cette location à tous ceux qui veulent profiter de vacances au calme et dans cadre magnifique.

Golf: They are constructing a golf course only 2km away design by one of the best golfers from all times called Nick Faldo but isn't finished yet, unfortunately. Apart of this one we still have another two golf courses in Madeira where you can have some of the best views in Madeira at the same time you play.
