Guestbook comments from the owner
Dear interested persons,



first of all: my boyfriend and me (50 years) felt comfortable at "Casa Calheta" and recommend it!



In Sept. 2012 we spent 3 weeks in "Casa Calheta".



This is a charming country house because natural materials were used like stones (the inner walls), wooden beams (ceiling), country-style furnitures in nice colourful hues. 1 great round archer and 2 smaller ones for the fire wood in the kitchen are masoned. At some places they decoraded with traditional Azulejos. You can see colourd modern pictures on the stone walls.

A special is the grill section with a fire place near the cooker in the kitchen.

You can rest on the great terrace which has a rose bed in the middle, on sun loungers between view screens, and one floor above on a smaller one, both looking to the sea. You can also find 2 special resting benches here.

It is suitable for babys because there are fences before downstairs.

The pictures in the Internet describes it accurately but you feel even more comfortable when you enter the house.

The rooms were clean and the owner familiy was very friendly and helpful.



Tip:

If you want to do hiking tours it's better to start early in the morning. Then you are one of the first toursists at your selected destination and the fog will arise until noon so that your view will be affected. Look into the Levadas, you can find different animals in it.



Excursions - our impressions:

- Porto Moniz, the vulcany baths: you are sitting on the boundary to the sea, waiting for the big wave which withdraws you into the water-you can't withstand!

- Sao Vicente, the vulcany caves: the guide leads you among numerous impressing vulcany tubes and a small lake. Afterwards they show you a 3D anmimated film in which you are going like Jules Verne into the middle of the earth.

Sao Laurenco: I thought that this dry landscape has to be boring but I have changed my mind. If you first saw the film of the genesis of Madeira you can recognize the lava columns and flows and different melted rocks in interesting colours.



Have fun and recreation on Madeira!

DELIGHTFUL, WELL MAINTAINED AND EQUIPPED PROPERTY,

  • 4 out of 5
We had a truly wonderful stay at this house. It provided all the amenities that we needed. The kitchen was spacious and had an indoor BBQ. It was lovely to have a large terrace where we could relax and enjoy a view of the sea. It was great to have TV and Internet provided. The house had a lot of character and was located well. We enjoyed early morning walks around the local area. The beach and a supermarket were a 5 minute drive away. Ana was very welcoming and the process of booking this accommodation was very smooth. When we arrived Ana and Rafael were waiting for us, they had provided a large bowl of fruit and a bottle of Madeira wine. This was a really nice touch. If there was to be a negative, the stairs to the bedrooms were quite steep, this may be difficult for older people or those with mobility problems and you have to walk through one bedroom to get to the other. However, it really was a dream stay in Casa Calheta. We would recommend it to anyone and hope to go back one day.

A CHARMING MADEIRA, HOME AWAY

  • 5 out of 5
I can not sing the praises of this Madeiran Couple's Integrity more loudly than to say I have never met more HONEST or GRACIOUS Hosts. I made an overpayment of 130.00 euros which Rafael caught and returned!

This is a very Charming and Beautiful House with amazing views of the ocean, vineyards and sunsets. Very well equipped with all needed accessories making our month long stay very comfortable. Centrally located in a quite village. A small grocery store one block away! Wonderful Madeiran Cuisine Restaurants 10 - 15 minutes away. Close to lovely Fishing Villages to explore. Easy access to main roads for discovering all the wonders Madeira has to offer.

Thank you, Ana and Rafael for all your special attention to our needs and request. Especially for making the special arrangements, celebrating Carnival in Funchal! You made our marvelous month vacation an extraordinary dream come true!

You will not regret one minute staying in this Charming Madeiran Casa!

CONTEMPORARY YET TRADITIONAL HOUSE

  • 5 out of 5
My wife and I stayed in this beautiful house for 1 week in January. It really was a home from home, with everything needed for the most comfortable stay. The rustic original features, exposed wooden beams and stonework complimented the flat screen tv, wireless internet and cable TV perfectly! The views from the large terrace were amazing and the herb garden well stocked.

We had a great time at this house, Ana and her family met us on arrival and made us feel very welcome. Ana's husband even changed our flat tire whist we were being given a tour of the house.

The local bar Michael's (5mins walk) is great for drinks and there are numerous restaurants in 5 mins drive. We would not hesitate to return to this lovely abode!

PERFECT PLACE FOR A PERFECT HOLIDAY !!!

  • 5 out of 5
Great house, got everything you need for a perfect holiday. The desciption of the house was absolutely accurate. Completely renovated and very clean. Big kitchen - very well equipped, tasteful furniture, big in-house garage, great terrace, etc.

Quiet but central location- less than 10 mins drive to the only sandy beach of Madeira. Most places of Madeira can be reached within one hour drive.

Very friendly and helpful landlord who even responds to special needs (we got all the infant equipment we needed).

We can fully recommend this place for a stay on Madeira.

Thank you very much for providing a perfect place for a perfect holiday!

RUHE UND ECHTE ERHOLUNG

  • 5 out of 5
Dieses freundliche, saubere und gut eingerichtete Haus mit wunderbarer Sicht auf die Umgebung ist bestens für den Winterurlaub geeignet. Die Dezembertemperaturen von +13 bis +19°C und viel Sonne laden zum Spazieren und Wandern ein. Das Haus ist genau so, wie auf den Fotos hier abgebildet.
Wir waren über Weihnachten dort und freuten uns über einen liebevoll geschmückten Tannenbaum (künstlich) und die weihnachtliche Deko im Wohnzimmer. Die Vermieter sind sehr nett und ehrlich. Wir vergassen ein Käppi von meinem Sohn und nach wenigen Tagen (obwohl wir den Verlust noch gar nicht mal gemerkt hatten) bekamen wir das Käppi per Post. Vielen Dank dafür!
Das ist ein Haus, das wir gerne weiterempfehlen werden!
Liebe Grüße aus Deutschland. Lilli und Leon

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;
