It’s a perfect base for a couple who want a relaxing holiday away from it all or a family or group who also want to be in the country for an activity holiday of coastal and levada walks but, not far from everything.

The whole villa is minimalist well-designed by the owners for families and groups on holiday.

Other important guidance and advice

Hire car or not? We recommend pick up of a hire car and drop off at the airport.

Airport transfer: but, some of our clients do not want a hire-car for the whole holiday or to drive. One solution is we can pick 3 people up at the airport and return clients to the airport for 35 Euro each journey. Also, we can offer lifts to some of the attractions including white sand beaches at Calheta and other places such as the start of walks for a reasonable fee per kilometre.

Nothing far away and plenty to do!: The village has a small supermarket, shops, a bank, medical centre, bars/cafes & restaurants. Popular activities in & around the village are: levada forest walks. Fishing, swimming, snorkelling & surfing. Paul do Mar is very flat for Madeira and easy to walk around, roller-skate & cycle! There are many festas (festivals) & the streets are alive with different languages as the locals who work abroad return home all year for a well-earn holiday with family and friends!

Free swimming is easy from certain points including the lagoon next to the harbour and the white sand beaches in Calheta town -10 min drive away.

-In the district with the most Laurisilva forest with famous walks such as the PR19 Paul do Mar - Prazeres and the ancient Levadeiro walk to Faja da Ovelha starting in the village and other walks such as The Levada Nova, Rabacal/Paul Da Serra walks including those to The 25 Springs not far away

Prazeres village has a small zoo art galleries, a small supermarket & some great restaurants.

Guestbook comments from the manager

"The villa was fantastic and we definitely recommend it!""



Family of 4 from Finland wrote in the Bela Vista Beach Villa Guestbook in December 2012:



"The villa was fantastic and we definitely recommend it...



It had everything we wanted.



We had a great vacation in Madeira.



The weather was nice 18-20 c and we swim in the Atlantic Ocean in Calheta beach, it wasn´t so cold.



Paul and Iva were very welcoming and helpful.



We´ll come again hopefully soon, Thank you!"

Beautiful villa. Three lovely bedrooms (two with balconies right on the sea front). Well equipped.

The villa was beautifully furnished and decorated. The host was prompt and helpful on arrival and leaving. Right by the sea. Loved the huge 1st floor veranda for sunbathing & dining. Two full bathrooms and another toilet, kitchen has everything you could need. Large under home garage keeps the car cool. Perfect!

Fabulous!

  • 5 of 5

Beautiful house overlooking the sea. This Ocean front house is one of the best in which we have stayed. Fabulous views of the sea in a quiet village, but accessible to all points of interest on the island.

The kitchen is well stocked with all you'll need and the welcome pack was much appreciated!

  • 5 of 5

We enjoyed our stay in Paul do Mar, mainly because the property was a real home from home with plenty of space and amenities for 4 adults. Take a walk into the village and see the statue and beautiful tiled streets, or up to the bakery and enjoy the beautiful cakes (Elaine speaks excellent English and is very welcoming). The weather wasn't the best whilst we were in Madeira, but we certainly had fantastic views from Bela Vista. Paul was very informative and helpful during our stay and there are leaflets and books to peruse to help you decide what you'd like to do whilst on the island. We enjoyed the little we did of the levada walks, though due to lots of low cloud and rain, we didn't get the fantastic views we'd heard about. We shall just have to return and do it all again!! We did manage to drive around the island and would recommend Ponto Moniz to see the smoothed out volcanic chambers that have been made into swimming pools.

Bela Vista has got to be rated 10/10. Clean, everything to hand, perfect

  • 5 of 5

When we arrived we were greeted and shown around the property. It was clean throughout, smelt very fresh. Rooms were immaculate. Loads of relevant information about the island and brilliant advice in a handy booklet. The house is situated opposite the ocean and you can watch the sunrise and set from your bedroom if you wish. Near to some great restaurants and bars too. Can't fault anything about this bela vista
