Things to do on holiday in Calheta, Madeira

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.

Charming and recently revenovated cottage

5 of 5
This is a charming and recently revenovated cottage located just 10 minutes drive from the beach and local amenities. It is located is a small hamlet of houses surrounded by locals tending to their home grown crops.  The cottage has been restored to a very high standard throughout and has great views of the sea and surrounding area. The open plan kitchen/lounge is spacious and has everything you need to have a great stay. The sundeck is large with a well kept raised garden to the front,  sun loungers and a bbq are also available. The communication from the owner has been excellent from the time of booking and throughout our stay. This is our second trip to Madeira and we certainly recommend staying at this property and plan to do so again.

5 of 5
Paul do Mar was very quiet and relaxing and we considered it a good choice much better than Funchal where we went for a day out. The location of the villa was perfect from this perspective. The beds were very comfortable which was pleasant to find in a holiday let. We also appreciated the standard of the villa furnishings, the space and bathing facilities which are of a similar standard to those we have at home. The location was peaceful and provided really lovely views.”
