A dream place, quiet and beautiful surroundings, stunning views.
This was the best holiday place we have been too. Joao, the host was so welcoming and helpful. The house is in the most beautiful location, conveniently located 10 min drive from Calheta which has a great supermarket and beautiful beach.
Everything in the house was comfortable, with all the things you needed to cook and great kitchen facilities. The pool was clean and warm, giving out on beautiful views over the ocean.We can only highly recommend Joao’s house and we hope we can come back soon.
Spacious, comfortable Villa with pool & great views
The villa is bigger than the pictures suggest. The views over the sea are lovely and the villa is very quiet and not overlooked. There are large patio doors to 2 sides of the lounge area to enjoy the views from.
The road outside is quite steep which is typical of the surrounding area. A car is essential for a holiday at this villa. The pool is a good size with wide steps at the shallow end, the water is not hot just less bitingly cold compared to many villas in Spain and Italy we have recent experience of. There are ample loungers around the pool.
The villa is easy to find, just do the route on Google Streetview first from the owners instructions, there are a few extra tunnels near the end of the route not actually in the instructions, which are otherwise very good.There are many steps up to the villa, they are good regular steps but you must have sufficient mobility to cope with these. Inside the villa every room is a good size. The bedrooms are 3 genuine double sized bedrooms with good storage provision.
We had a very relaxing and enjoyable week at the villa. There is both a fridge and good sized freezer and everything seemed to work well. Local supermarket was good and a lot of people spoke good English.
The laundry facilities are in a nice outhouse BUT require climbing a set of steps at the side of the property which do not have a handrail and would not suit anyone who tends to suffer vertigo like my wife, so I got to drive the washing machine on this holiday.
We have never gone back to the same villa for a holiday a 2nd time, but we have already booked for next year so impressed were we with both the villa and Madeira.
Help is quickly available if you have any problem with anything in the villa.
Ok, Thank you
We really enjoyed our stay here - the property is in an excellent location and the floor to ceiling windows meant we could enjoy the fabulous views even when the weather wasn't particularly great as was true for our stay. The owners are extremely helpful and friendly and were very responsive in sorting out the minor problems we encountered during our stay.
very well equiped house. all your need for a long or short rental. quite place with beautiful views. supermarket in 3 minutes drive. nice sunny side of an island.
Amazingly views in sunniest part of Madeira
We've just returned from a fantastic week in Calheta. We arrived late at night & struggled to find the place but the owners very kindly came out to meet us so we could follow them there. This villa is located in the most beautiful area, perfect for our needs - totally peaceful and quiet, close to levada walks and good base for seeing the west and northern parts of the island.
The highlight has to be the heated pool with amazing views over the ocean below.
A car is essential to explore this beautiful part of the island. It is possible to walk to the marina but only if prepared to walk down a very steep footpath, which we did on several occasions! You might prefer to taxi back in the evening. A couple of lovely restaurants overlooking marina.
The villa itself is lovely, perhaps a little tired (why I think 4 rather than 5 stars). We had a slight issue with the drains but the owners dealt with it immediately so can't fault that! Thank you!
Overall, this has been a wonderful holiday and I wouldn't hesitate in returning. We were very sorry to leave.
Lovely Villa in a stunning location
We stayed here over the Christmas holidays. We had a great time the villa was very comfortable and well equipped and the owner was very friendly and helpful.
The pictures of the view from the pool do not do justice to how beautiful this setting is. It is an amazing place to sit and enjoy meals with the family by the pool looking out to the ocean.
I stayed with my children who are 6 and 8 and they also thoroughly enjoyed their stay. The pool was great and as this is accessed from the lounge it is very easy to supervise the children at all times.
If you are considering a family holiday to Madeira I would recommend this villa, the location was also great with the supermarket, beach and restaurants very close by in Calheta. However I would say a car is necessary.
We had a great holiday and are already thinking about when we can return.
When we have almost everything under control and with satisfaction
The holidays are good
