On arrival in Calheta we were a little bit lost for exact location of house, this was quickly addressed with phone call to Jorge who arranged for his wife to quickly meet us and take us to the property. 1st impression was vey good and remained as such throuout our stay. The house had everything needed for self catering . The TV was ok but their was a lack of English based programmes. Location and view from property was nice overlooking the Atlantic, their was some local noise from neighbouring properties making house repairs, but not a problem. I would recommend the property to anyone wanting a quiet location and as sai very helpful house manager. Regards Michaylo Fedyk

The most wonderful view of the ocean and hills. We saw dolphins and (we think) whales from one of the balconies. The icing on the cake was the huge swimming pool which is truly for swimming, unlike most advertised. Kitchen fully equipped, with oven, microwave,fridge,freezer,wipe-clean hob made our stay really relaxing as we didn't need to eat out every day. Rose the caretaker was easy to get in contact with if we needed her (we didn't!).Bill gave us easy instructions and a map, also invaluable advice about Madeirans and their driving! A very friendly village, relaxed yet functional with a few small shops and locals who are more than happy to take time to help. This is definitely not our last trip to Madeira.We thoroughly recommend this property, and hope to come back in the future. Well done Bill.
