Fabulous view from the terrace of this good sized villa

  • 3 of 5

The villa was a good size tucked away from the main road but allowed easy access to the Rapida so we could visit different parts of the Island. Some of the furniture and linen was a bit tired but was functional. The builders next door started work at 8.00 am Monday to Saturday so no lie ins. Obviously the view from the bedrooms was spoilt by this new build. On the other side there was constant bubbling from their swimming pool mechanism which was never used while we were in the house - this could be heard from the terrace.

On balance the villa was good value and if certain issues were addressed then we would come back again on our annual Madeira holiday

Owner's Response: Hello Ian many thanks for your feedback which is always appreciated , so that where necessary we can make improvements for future guests. I am sorry that the builders next door started work early and worked on the weekend - this was because they were behind on their December completion date . As you are aware the main construction was already complete . The noise from the final stages of the external/swimming pool work has not been excessive but is accentuated as the whole area around the Villa is so so quiet - as they say " you can normally hear a pin drop !! " The mountain view from bedroom 3 has been partially affected by the new house next door . Besides this , the fabulous ocean views from all other rooms is totally unaffected . The couple of tired pillows have been replaced as has the damaged sun lounger . I am very pleased you enjoyed staying at the Villa , that you thought it was good value and would like to return one day , now that the construction next door is complete . Kind regards Ian

Relaxing days

  • 5 of 5

Wir haben 10 Tage in diesem schönen Haus verbracht. Es liegt am Ende einer Sackgasse auf ca. 240m Höhe und ist gut zu erreichen. Der untere Teil des Hauses, der über eine Treppe auf der Terrasse oder seitlich am Haus hinunter erreicht werden kann, wird nicht genutzt bzw. belegt. Entsprechend steht einem erholsamen und ruhigen Urlaub nichts im Wege. Einzig die Hähne und Hunde der Nachbarschaft sind zeitweilig zu hören.

Es ist alles vorhanden, was man für einen entspannten Urlaub braucht: Komplett ausgestattete Küche, WLAN ist vorhanden und sogar ein Billardtisch und Dartscheibe sorgen für Unterhaltung am Abend. Die Aussicht von der Terrasse ist traumhaft, tolle Sonnenuntergänge und wenn man Glück hat, kann man Delfine sehen.

An dem unteren Teil des Hauses befindet sich ein Garten mit Orangen- und Limettenbäumen, einem Feigenbaum und schönen Blumen.

In Calheta am Beach Hotel ist ein großer Supermarkt, in dem man alles für den Aufenthalt besorgen kann.

Restaurants haben wir in Calheta nur das 'Convento das Vinhas' ausprobiert: Sehr leckerer Tagesfisch.

Der Vermieter und die Verwalterin vor Ort sind gut erreichbar und hilfsbereit.

Ob zu zweit, mit Freunden oder Familie: Die Villa ist absolut empfehlenswert.

We spent 10 days at this beautiful house. It is located on a dead end at about 240m height and is easy to reach. There is an unused lower part, which can be reached down a staircase on the terrace or the side of the house. So you are all on your own to enjoy a relaxing and quiet holiday. Only the roosters and dogs in the neighborhood are temporarily heard.

You'll find everything you need in the house: Fully equipped kitchen, WiFi and even a pool table and dartboard provide entertainment in the evening. The view from the terrace is gorgeous, great sunsets and if you're lucky, you can see dolphins.

There is a garden with orange and lemon trees, a fig tree and beautiful flowers on the lower part of the house.

In Calheta at the Beach Hotel is a large supermarket where you can get everything for your stay.

Restaurants we only tried the ' Convento das Vinhas ' in Calheta : Very tasty fish of the day.

The owner and the manager on site are easy to reach and helpful.

Whether as a couple, with friends or family: We can highly recommend this villa.

Angenehmes Domizil

  • 4 of 5

Gute Lage, Sonnenaufgang und Sonnenuntergang hautnah erleben auf der Terrasse.

Die Einrichtung des Hauses ist ok, ausreichend Platz für 6 Personen.

Die Küche ist gut ausgestattet - aber: die vorhandenen Küchengeräte müssten regelmäßiger gewartet werden (beim Gasherd funktionierten nur 2 Flammen, beim Backofen war die Beleuchtung defekt, die Spülmaschine funktionierte erst nach zweimaliger Intensivreinigung). Deutsches Fernsehen, WLAN sind vorhanden.

Ein PKW ist zwingend notwendig (Supermarkt!). Geräuschempfindlich sollte man nicht sein (der Nachbarpool gurgeln ständig und die Abwasserpumpe hört man auch nachts).

Trotzdem haben wir einen tollen Urlaub gehabt!

Une magnifique maison avec vue sur l'océan et le soleil du matin au soir !

  • 5 of 5

Nous avons passé un très bon séjour dans cette maison bien équipée et spacieuse. Nous avons eu la chance d'avoir un temps parfait pendant 8 jours et nous avons pu en profiter pour randonner, pêcher, visiter ou se baigner. Nous avons profité de la terrasse tous les jours pour le petit déjeuner et le dîner.

Spacious and very nice house!

  • 4 of 5

The house is really very nice and comfortable. As I have problems with walking stairs it was very pleasant to have the whole house on one floor. The house has really everything you need for a nice stay, including nice launchchairs on the deck. The view from the deck is very nice! There is also a nice garden. Too bad that the garden lacked maintenance.

If we would ever return to Madeira then we would definitely rent this house again.

Car: necessary

Located on the south west coast ,Calheta enjoys the best climate in Madeira, It is a small rural suburb with spectacular views of the Atlantic Ocean and dramatic Mountain ranges. The excellent road network makes it very accessible and provides easy access to Madeira's main attractions.

The Villa is located in one of the oldest Parishes in Madeira .It is quiet and peaceful and a great place to relax and unwind. However there is plenty in the surrounding area to see and do during your stay and lots to do for the more active people.

The white sandy beach at Calheta is 3 minutes drive away by car. Alongside the beach lies the Marina with a variety of Cafes, Restaurants, Shops,a Bank and Supermarket.The protected waters here are ideal for young children - the seawater temperature is very mild, averaging 22ºC in summer and 18º in winter..For the more adventurous you can go deep sea game fishing or whale and dolphin watching from the Marina . There are a variety of other local activities ranging from swimming, water skiing, paraglding, levada and mountain walking and canoeing. Other local places of interest include Historic Churches, a Sugar Cane Factory and a Modern Art complex.

Within walking distance of the villa is a local village store and a separate local bar.

Further afield there are two breathtaking Golf courses - Palheiro Golf an i8 hole course and Santo da Serra a 27 hole course which is home to the Madeiran open.
