The house is located in a quiet location with shops and cafes close by, in a small rural suburb where you can find beautiful sights of the Atlantic Ocean and mountains. It's also very close to some of the most famous levada walks of Madeira and from the UNESCO-protected Laurisilva Forest (about 10 minutes away by car).
It is only a few minutes' walk from a small mini-market and bar/cafe run by a friendly English speaking owner, where you can taste the most famous and traditional Madeira drinks while enjoying our tropical annual weather.
The golden sandy beach at Calheta is only 5 minutes away by car, where there are plenty of cafes, free Wi-Fi hotpots, restaurants, banks, the marina and a supermarket. This is one of the only sandy beaches on the island and is ideal for the younger bathers, but if you're searching for new experiences, you can always try the Big-game fishing or the whale and dolphin watching activities based in the marina.
Also, with the newly asphalted roads, it is very simple to drive to other towns and villages of Madeira and you can easily go from Calheta to another part of the island without any worries and simply enjoying the beauty of Madeira.
The house is situated in Estreito da Calheta, near the village of Calheta on the south coast of the island:
- 35 minutes drive from Funchal;
- 50 minutes drive from the airport;
- 5 minutes drive to the Vila da Calheta;
