The perfect place for a family holiday
When I say that the photos online don’t do this villa, the views or the location justice, it’s an understatement: we walked in and were blown away by just how beautiful it was! Everything including the details of how to get to the meeting point; the friendly welcome from Rosa; the perfect location and villa; the provision of towels (!!) - it was just a great holiday and made us relax, and realise exactly how we will spend our holidays from now on! Everything you need is reachable - supermarkets and restaurants and the beach - within no more than a 15 minute drive, and if your legs are up to it, the walk to and from the local Italian is well worth it.
My son loved Calheta beach, as did we, and seeing him brave the inflatable obstacle course and snorkel in the water are memories we’ll cherish for a long time.
We were informed by Rosa that there are plans to update the shower and bathroom, which would add to the villa, but honestly, it really didn’t pose a problem!
The pool was the perfect size and depth for us all to be able to actually swim, and for our 6 year old to play in safely, and the views as we ate evening meals on the pool terrace were stunning.
We ate out in Calheta twice and the food was fabulous, but incredibly reasonably priced, as were the drinks...and the ice creams!
All in all, a fabulous family getaway on a beautiful island which we very much hope to visit again!
Thank you, Adi, for sharing such a lovely place!
WOW JESSICA WHAT A SPLENDID AND SWEET REVIEW-- YOU ARE MORE THAN WELCOME TO RETURN WHENEVER
Amazing house with fantastic views.
This house is fantastic. The views are to die for & the swimming pool kept us all entertained. The house has all the amenities you need for a family. I would recommend this house for a holiday getaway.
Dear guests thanks so much for your kind words and we are more than happy that you enjoed your stay in the house and Madeira. You are more than welcome to return.
We were lost for words when we saw the view. The villa had everything we needed and more. Very clean with an endless supply of towels which were needed as we were in the pool so much. Brilliant location. Madeira is very hilly and we were nearly at the top of the very long hill which meant the views were amazing. Lots of local restaurants but apart from the Italian you do need to drive. It was a little more overlooked in the pool area than we thought as the pictures didn't show the new villa to the right but it didn't bother us. Would recommend.
DEAR GUESTS THANKS SO MUCH FOR YOUR GREAT WORDS AND SO GLAD YO ENJOYED EVERYTHING YOU ARE MORE THAN WELCOME TO RETURN HAVE A GREAT SUMMER
Lovely property with beautiful aspect
We very much enjoyed our stay at Garry's property, the villa had everything we needed for a fantastic week away in Madeira.
Lovely views from the balconies and poolside, a nice quiet location with very little traffic passing on the road.
The only downside was that we were unable to use the pool for the majority of our stay as the level dropped drastically due to a leak. Despite Garry's best efforts it didn't refill until it was time for us to leave.
Thanks dear guests for your kind positive review. I am afraid I was not aware of the ongoing leakage problem which was not easy to trace after the pool was just redone completely recently. Sorry for the inconvenience and am sending a gesture refund- hope to see you again. Thanks Adi
Great place for holidays, breathtaking view!
We stayed at Garry's house for a week and just loved the place all the time. The house is in a quiet part of Arco da Calheta/Loreto and offers everything you need, it is clean and cozy, the kitchen is well equiped, there is a place for barbecue, too. All in all the property offers enough space for a comfortable stay for up to 4-5 guests (two bedrooms). Our favourite place was the terrace and the pool, where you can stay for hours and enjoy the sunshine and the breathtaking view. Supermarket and restaurant within 10 mins. walking distance from the house, for other destinations a car is a must have. Garry was a very helpfull host, the key disposal was arranged in a place which was easy to be found and from there on everything went very smooth. We can only recommend to make a booking in this property and sure we will return some day, as we enjoyed our stay a lot.
Thank you, dear Garry and best regards,
Larissa & Rafael
Dear Larissa and Rafael
Thank you so much for taking the time to write this wonderful perfect review- We are happy that you enjoyed your stay at the dream house and you are more than welcome to return. Have a nice Summer
For Garry Goncalves
Terriffic view, great pool, nice house
We stayed 8 nights i april in this place and we really loved it.
The house is up on a steep mountain (ok- just as everything on Madeira) and it seems situated right at the edge of a cliff (optical illusion).
The view is breathtaking, a lot of glass used to enjoy the sight.
We loved the large windows in the bedroom. We loved the balcony with a roof to dry towels on.
We loved the warm pool (certainly worth the money!) and that it is surrounded by glass, so you both have the view and the windshild. It does get cooler up there and we could have wished for more blankets in the first nights, as we did not want to start the electric radiators at night.
In summer it must be a relief and fantastic with the temperature at this altitude, in april is was nearly too chilly and often cloudy.
The pool and garden are really luxury and we enjoyed also in april nice hours out there.
Besides of the work noise from remodelling the neighboring ground, it was perfectly private and very quiet, while in a rural township. At night we could hear the frogs and in the mornings the birds. A perfect sky of stars at night, (if there were no clouds). Very charming the levada in the garden, which at times is flowing, at others dry.
It is very close to popular hiking areas (Rabacal) and Calheta (the only sandy beach bigger than one towel) is close by. We very also surprised how fast we could drive to Funchal.
The house is newly renovated, smaller and rather simple but very functional and aimed at the view. I would say that the price fits and the description was fine. It is not a 5 -star luxury house(which we did not want to pay for - they could be found), but anyhow a dream.
We were 2 adults and 3 children, that worked out fine.
The car parks nicely under a roof at the side entrance, which was great in rainweather and surely must be nice in summerheat.
There is a great outdoor barbeque fireplace, which we enjoyed.
Only 2 details, which we regarded not so good: the downstairs toilet has no ventilation, other than opening the door to the livingroom....
The shower cabin (there is one shower) is absolutely not suitable for pregnant or big people. Although only normal height (175cm) and moderate overweight middle-european, I could just barely squeeze myself through the door opening into the cabin. So if you are obese, you will not be able to take a shower :-)
If we ever come to Madeira again, we would come later into the year and stay here again and advise friends to, too!
Dear guests- A big hug and thanks so much for the time devoted to write such a great detailed review. I appreciate your kind words and think you have given a 200% correct description. I will take your constructive remarks and check what can be done regarding the wc downstairs and the shower area Look forward to your return to the loveley paradise of Madeira
The villa has a fantastic cliff edge pool 10 meters by 5 meters and has absolutely stunning views with a newly landscaped garden. It is located in the picturesque and quiet village of Loreto with local amenities. a few minutes drive up the hill will lead you and loved oes to a pristine forest area and then to the amazing Paul da serra ridge with a rare canyon below which resembles if u put your imagination to workthe grand canyon in the USA... There is a nice possible walk to Rabacal with its small waterfalls. Eight minute drive to the golden beach and marina at calheta with bars and restaurants and large supermarket. There is a smaller supermarket called Amanhecer within walking distance. Thirty minute drive to Funchal with many bars, restaurants, beautiful board walks, botanical gardens and many more things to do and see. Ten minute drive to Ponto do Sol, beautiful fishing village and fifteen minutes drive to Ribeira Brava with plenty of shops and restaurants. Forty five minute drive to airport along the Atlantic coast. Your chance to see the real Madeira with lush green valleys, peaceful forests, majestic mountains and peaks shrouded in clouds. Also 42 inch plasma with satellite with 200 channels to choose from. Free high speed Wi-Fi, 24GB. Heated pool is an optional extra if you require a heated pool it is 75 euros per week(which hardly covers the cost...)
Before your actual arrival to Madeira a meeting point will be coordinated so you will be able to arrive to the house without any difficulty... ENJOY MADEIRA
