About the property

Three Bedroom Villa, Sleeps 6


The owner has decorated the Villa in lovely colours that reflect the old fishing cottages of Madeira.

The living area is full of light and has full length sliding windowpanes that provide full and direct sea-views and leads to the swimming pool terrace. In addition to the sitting and dining areas, you will find a delightfully decorated open plan kitchen and separate barbecue.

The Master Bedroom with en-suite bathroom is on the first floor; the second bedroom is below it and has next to it the family bathroom. The third bedroom and en-suite bathroom is in the loft of what was the barn, and is reached via a separate set of steps.

The living area and all the bedrooms have air-conditioning.

There is free Wi-Fi connection throughout the Villa.

The Villa is secluded and very private and off the beaten track.

The whole house and grounds is perched on the edge of land, only 30 metres above the pebble beach, and affords astounding views - you feel as one with the ocean.

Bedroom 1 Double bed, air-conditioning and French doors to a small balcony

Bedroom 2 Beds can be made up as one double bed or two singles beds, air-conditioning and French doors to the pool terrace

Bedroom 3 In the Loft, beds can be made up as one double bed or two singles beds, air conditioning

A lovely little beach hut is located right on the rocky beach 30 metres below, and shared by, the three Villas do Mar.

A front terrace with sunbeds, outdoor shower and built-in barbecue and large table (seating for 16), is complemented with a kitchen (fridge, 4-ring hob) and toilet.

Access is via a pathway with steps that leads from the level of the Villas do Mar down to the beach.

Vila do Mar II is a sister villa to the popular Villa do Mar I, which is situated next door which has been the home for many a happy holidaymaker for the past couple of years.

Car hire is essential as the villa is located just above sea-level at the bottom of the cliff. As the access is narrow and steep, for your comfort you should hire a smaller size car.

For larger groups, please see Villa do Mar I on this this website or property number 1544748 on the Homeaway website.

Calheta is famous for producing the best white rum 'Aguardente', a special ingredient of the typical Madeiran drink 'Poncha'. If you are interested in knowing how the white rum is made, we recommend a tour of the 'Engenho da Calheta' the rum distillery where you can wander around and sample the produce.

Centro das Artes Casa da Mudas is a new centre located at the edge of a cliff overlooking the sea and was built to host superb art exhibitions, musical performances and other events.

Madeira is a paradise for those who enjoy walking and hiking, and Arco da Calheta is ideally situated, having easy access to the road network and most places on the island.

Beautiful quiet location, well equipped.

  • 4 of 5

This is a lovely villa with a great view over the sea. Very well equipped and a lovely garden. We were invited out for a meal at the owners restaurant the second night, which was very good. There is a lovely beach house but you need to plan for a day down there as there are around 150 steps down to it. The beach is stony so plastic shoes are a good idea.The owners agent was as helpful as we could have hoped for.

Especially for someone who usually drives on the left, the road is quite difficult, steep with sharp bends.

Traumvilla in spektakulärer Lage

  • 5 of 5

Wir haben im Juni eine wunderschöne Woche in der Villa do Mar II verbracht. Es war alles perfekt: die wundervolle Aussicht aufs Meer, das beruhigende Rauschen der Wellen, die Ausstattung der Villa. Das Schlafzimmer hat ein Bullauge aufs Meer, sodass man sich wie auf einem Schiff vorkommt, zusätzlich noch ein Dachfenster zum Sternegucken! Die Betten sind sehr bequem. Das Wohnzimmer mit Küche und Essplatz ist modern eingerichtet, besonders haben uns die fröhlichen Farben gefallen. Der Außenbereich ist mit schönen Möbeln ausgestattet, der Pool ist ein Traum und die Bepflanzung sehr tropisch.

Senhor Acacio hat uns sehr freundlich und gut betreut. Es lief alles völlig problemlos ab.

Vielen Dank an den Besitzer für die Einladung in sein Restaurant Vila do Peixe. Wir haben das gute Essen in nettem Ambiente sehr genossen.

Wir freuen uns schon auf das nächste Mal!

Vila do mar is a extremly lovely place!

  • 5 of 5

We have already been several times to Madeira, this time we could afford a little "more" for the place to sleep, eat and "live" - so Vila do mar was the very right choice. It is situated that spectacular, you nearly can't imagine even if you look at the pictures. However the house is renovated and decorated with so much care and the special look for lovely details - each corner has something special. The same about the garden and the surrounding! Palms and plants are now grown up - and the roses were flowering even in December. Special thanks to the owner for having created such a beautiful place!

What a lovely surprise!

  • 4 of 5

What a fantastic stunning villa! Madeira was a lovely surprise too. We never expected it to be so diverse and pretty. Loved exploring the island - down by the sea and way, way up in the mountains above the clouds. We loved the terraced terrain, so interesting and stunning flowers all around.

The villa has the most amazing views of the sea (it's almost ON the sea) and to hear the crashing waves constantly is a unique bonus. The sunsets were the best we've ever seen. The villa itself is so pretty and has everything you'd need for a relaxing holiday - apart from the road down which is terrifying and daunting (and we are not easily scared - one star has been taken off for it!).

I'd have no hesitation whatsoever in recommending Our Madeira who were always helpful and quick with their responses. Mr Rodriquez was always on the end of the phone even when we had queries non-villa related (our telescope tripod broke so he advised us where to go to get a replacement).

Our complimentary dinner at Vila do Peixe in Camara de Lobos was really delicious - and very kind of the owner.

We were very lucky to have had fantastic weather for our two week holiday and found Madeira interesting in every way and recommend that everyone should visit at least once in a lifetime!

Perfekter Urlaub

  • 5 of 5

Die Villa überzeugt sowohl von der Architektur, Lage als auch Einrichtung und entspricht den gezeigten Bildern. Wir haben die 14 Tage sehr genossen. Der Blick direkt auf den Atlantik ist unbeschreiblich. Einzig die letzten 200m Anfahrt sind etwas abenteuerlich, da eine steile Stichstraße zum Haus führt. Aber daran gewöhnt man sich recht schnell. Supermärkte finden Sie 5 bzw. 15 Minuten vom Haus entfernt. Gleichwohl es sehr viele gute Restaurants auf Madeira gibt. Wir haben die Villa genutzt um ganz Madeira zu erkunden und würden jederzeit die Villa wieder mieten.

A wonderful, quiet house near the sea

Das Haus ist wundervoll direkt am Meer gelegen.

Der Blick ist fantastisch. Wir waren zu Zweit in der Villa, es war perfekt, die Ausstattung ist sehr gut. Wir kommen wieder!

Perched on a tranquil fajã (a piece of land at the foot of a cliff) in the sunny Calheta area. A few minutes by car will take you to the resort town of Calheta, which, with its man-made golden beaches, is popular with tourists and locals alike. There is a beautiful marina and a good choice of bars and restaurants. There is a handful of boutique shops and a good supermarket.
