Situated on the south-west coast of the beautiful island of Madeira, Calheta is the island’s most important agricultural centre, growing copious bananas, sugar cane and grapes for making Madeira’s finest wines. The region is characterised by mountains, lush valleys and excellent beaches, and of course, the region’s famous sugar cane rum, Aguardente.

Things to do on holiday in Calheta, Madeira

Calheta holiday villas are perfect for those who want to spend time relaxing on stunning beaches with dramatic backdrops, away from the tourist hordes. Although the region is very popular, you never get the sense of being crowded in Calheta, especially when you take the privacy and space of a villa in Calheta. There are fine sandy beaches everywhere, and if you love the beach, you will love Calheta. There are plenty of water sports to enjoy too. Windsurfing is a particular favourite, and exploring the coastline from a canoe is a great way to explore.

Fishing is an important occupation for the locals, and you can organise a fishing trip easily from Calheta Marina, and go out into the turquoise waters which surround the island and try to catch one of the trophy fish which surround the island.

The wild interior of Calheta is perfect for hiking. The mountains are perfect for treks off all lengths and difficulties, and the jewel of Calheta’s walking crown is the breathtaking, towering Risco Waterfall.

Wonderful house in peaceful and scenic location

5 of 5
Had a wonderful stay here. House was beautiful, clean and very spacious. Very comfortable and with great amenities - private pool with large patio, sun loungers, table and chairs, indoor bbq and lovely view over the ocean. Short (but steep) walk down hill to supermarket, restaurants, hotels, enclosed sea swimming area. It was so peaceful - owners live next door but gave us lots of privacy (1 visit midweek to give us some fresh, local produce :) - thank you Zeza!). Would love to come back here - perfect spot for a relaxing break in the sun.

Exceĺlent villa with everything well maintained

5 of 5
A lovely nicely located spacious property and the owners were very helpful. We really had no complaints but the following would enhance the experience. One long mirror, complimentary toiletries and more local information in English. All these are minor things and the lack of them did not detract from the superb villa.
