Fabulous villa. Look no further.

  • 5 of 5

Green Villa was a dream holiday from start to finish. Alberto was fantastic at answering my many questions before we got there, and the lovely Rosa met us to take us to the villa cheerily despite the fact we were far later arriving than we should have been.

We have never stayed anywhere quite so luxurious. The photographs look good but they don’t begin to do the place justice. It was so much bigger and better than we expected. The master bedroom was enormous! As was the en suite. The ‘family bathroom’ had an amazing walk in shower. The aircon was in every room and was very efficient. Everywhere was well maintained and very clean. We heard the next door villas being serviced between guests (and experienced our mid-fortnight clean) and were impressed by the attention the properties were given. The kitchen was very well equipped (fish knives/pastry forks even!!!) The outdoor furniture was all very high quality. We spent most of our time outdoors. The flowers and greenery bring Madeira into the property. The lower floor now houses an electric sauna, hot tub, table tennis table and fitness equipment, as well as a ‘conservatory furniture’, a double bedroom, utility room and shower room. There is another outdoor dining area by the built in barbeque.

The villa is in a great location – just down the road from Calheta where the nearest supermarket (Pingo Doce) t is. Do not try and find the one from the Pingo Doce website as it doesn’t exist – it is on the front at Calheta. There are bananas growing everywhere! We loved driving down to Ponto do Sol for evening meals. Funchal was a bit busy for us, but we did the toboggan ride, the tropical gardens and the cable car. The market is absolutely beautiful. The food was amazingly cheap. Simple food but delicious. We took the Lobosonda fishing boat from Calheta and saw loads of dolphins. We would love to return to Madeira and would seek out properties of Mr Alberto. We had a very relaxing time and loved every minute and everything. (Seek out my other reviews – I am not always easy to please!!!) I could write pages about all the things that were so wonderful about the property and the island.

Fantastic Property

  • 5 of 5

Having rented holiday accommodation for many years this is way up there with the best of them. The property was as new and our teenage children were forever in the heated pool (as were we!) and it also now has a table tennis table and jacuzzi hot tub installed. All of the furnishings and equipment were of a very high standard. The views from the property are stunning (worth taking binoculars as we regularly saw pods of dolphins). Bar-b-que'd often (built in) but eating out was ridiculously cheap and restaurants and cafes were all of a very good standard. The owner Alberto was a perfect host and nothing was too much trouble. Have no doubt we will return sometime in the future and would highly recommend this property. Bill & Louise, Scotland.

  • 5 of 5

Wow what can I say beautiful relaxing peaceful

I stayed on my own without a car taxis are cheep and are readily available

The village is very hilly but there is a small supermarket bars chemist restaurant within walking distance

The local people are really friendly most try to speak to you

I did a trip around the island by taxi haggle about but well worth it Caletta beach is worth a visit I went whale and dolphin watching also took the same boat to see fireworks

All in all I had a fantastic time it was a special treat to swim in the pool most days

I'm returning 26 th Dec this year but this time for longer love everything about this place

Best property ever!...

  • 5 of 5

We had a great holiday on this lovely island. This villa was far better than we expected and easily the best property we have rented for a vacation over the years. It has a hot swimming pool for the children to play in and for us just to to relax in a quiet area. Anyone considering a family holiday renting this property will not be disappointed.

Owner's Response: Glad you enjoyed my villa and nice comments. I try to make my villa special for families on holiday as most people only get 2 weeks with their children and deserve to be spoiled enjoying this lovely island of Madeira living with a bit of luxury. Thanks again for your comments.

Just a quick note to thank the owner Mr Alberto for his help to ensure we had a great time in his lovely villa and would recommend it to any family for a holiday. His villa is in a very quiet location and just what we wanted and will be back again when we come to Madeira. Regards Susanne & family

Just back, from a superb holiday!

  • 5 of 5

We have just had a superb holiday in this 5 star villa in Arco Da Calheta on the south coast of Madeira. We recommended this place for anyone wanting to be have a special holiday and a pity we could not stay a lot longer as it was so enjoyable. The weather was very good; we swam every day this hearted pool was like a dream. Hope that we can stay on our next visit to the Island.

See you soon, maybe next year.
