    Spectacular views in Arco da Calheta

    Wedged on a small plinth of volcanic rock at the base of Madeira's mighty coastal mountains, the pint-sized parish of Arco da Calheta is a spectacular spot. Its whitewashed homes and their terracotta-topped roofs speckle the verdant landscape like seashells washed up from the Atlantic. Higher up, occupying soaring spots on the cliffs, some Arco da Calheta holiday rentals come with 180-degree views that take the breath away. It's a haven for paragliders and hikers, or those just seeking a serene corner of the Isle of Flowers. Tempted?

    Two sides to Arco da Calheta

    If you're finding it hard to reconcile peaceful breakfasts of Portuguese fruit with adrenaline-pumping jumps from the top of Madeira's cliffs, then you're just starting to get a feel for what Arco da Calheta is all about. One moment, you could be kicking back with a coffee in the seaside cafes. The next, hiking rugged trails through banana plantations and wildflower meadows. One morning, you might be relaxing on the yellow-sand beaches, only to find yourself paragliding off soaring mountain miradors in the afternoon.

    Excursions galore from Arco da Calheta

    Arco da Calheta holiday rentals are all about immersing yourself in Madeira's wild coastal reaches. But if you'd like to seek out some chart-topping attractions nearby, hop in the car and head to Funchal. It's less than 35 minutes away, and is packed with attractions. Take in the 15th-century Cathedral of Funchal and the blooming Madeira Botanical Gardens, with their waxy orchids, lush azaleas and spiny cacti. Don't miss the CR7 Museum, either. It's an odyssey through the life and achievements of the island's most-famous son, Cristiano Ronaldo.

    Year-round attractions in Arco da Calheta

    There's never a bad time to seek out those Arco da Calheta holiday rentals. This is Madeira, which means the weather's usually good all year round. Summers are the hottest, with June, July and August proving the most popular of all. That said, the winter months between November and March can be truly pleasant. There are fewer people around then and the days are breezier and less humid. Spring and autumn are perfect if you're looking to do some hiking, so why not visit in April, May or October?
