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 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.

                                                A lovely quinta and a superb holiday

                                                5 of 5
                                                We had a superb holiday staying in this lovely quinta. We are veterans of villa rentals, now in our 12th year, mainly through this website so feel qualified to comment! The quinta itself was very well equipped, tastefully decorated and spotlessly clean and unusual in that cleaning products, washing powder, dishwasher tablets, loo rolls etc were supplied as were coffee, tea bags, olive oil, herbs etc-plus a welcome basket of fresh fruit and vegetables-thank you. The beds were very comfortable, made up with soft cotton bedlinen and in combination with cool, dark rooms guaranteed a good nights sleep. The outdoor seating and cooking areas are superb, catching the sun all day-we cooked outside for 3 nights out of our 7 day stay. Opting for pool heating was a good decision-the pool temperature was around 32 degrees-perfect for a family swim at the end of a day exploring the island.. We found some good local restaurants, Naye's pizzeria 5 minutes up the road in Loreto was really friendly and served delicious pizzas and others in Calheta and Funchal were also very good-we have left some recommendations in the guestbook. My only (very minor) reservation would be that a party of 6 people may find the quinta cosy if the weather was inclement making the outside spaces less accessible. For our family of 2 adults and 2 older children, we had more that enough space even on the days with less sunshine and more precipitation! All in all, a lovely place to stay and a great holiday.

                                                My Wife and I had two relaxing and enjoyable weeks stay at the Casa da Flores in Arco da Calheta Madeira in May ...The villa was spacious , clean & bright . The decor pleasing and comfortable . Well equipped with all you could possibly need . The pool and terrace area with beautiful flora was a delight to see each day . The village and locale residents very friendly and helpful . A must for shopping is a place called Maderia Shopping and Funchal the capital . We liked it so much that we have booked two weeks for 2017 ... Can't wait to return ??? ... !!!!! Stan & Rita Watford , Hertfordshire .

                                                A wee slice of paradise

                                                5 of 5
                                                Ana and Rafael met us at the airport which was especially helpful of them.the easy drive to Calheta was magical with amazing views the whole way.the house is wonderful with lots of room and bright open areas. It was lovely to have the balcony are right outside the bedroom and the big patio out of the kitchen and sitting room doors. The local market and the big supermarket are very close with a few nice wee bars a close walk to the house. We were greeted in the house with a bottle of madeira wine (our first try) which was a lovely touch and couldn't have asked for a more perfect place to stay on our first of I'm sure many trips to madeira.
