Why Rose Gouveia chose Arco Da Calheta

Having bought this property with a view to retiring to Madeira we decided that we would like to be able to share the island with others who could appreciate the unique character that this part of the world holds.

Lovely house with fantastic views of the coast

  • 4 of 5

We had a lovely week in Calheta and the house has all you would need for a family break. You will need a car though if you want to explore the area and the island and be a fairly confident driver to master the entrance road to the house. But the effort is worth while.

Excellent view, difficult to access and missing those holiday essentials.

  • 3 of 5

This house is set up in the hills and as such has an attractive view. The rooms are accurately represented in the photographs, unfortunately a couple of things detract from making this 5 stars. All of the cupboards in the kitchen and bedrooms smelly musty which leaves the place feeling rather unwelcoming. The drive to the house is very steep, very narrow and so demanding that our hire car struggled to get there- not for the faint hearted. After the difficult drive it was disappointing to find that there was an absence of any welcoming touches- no booklet, no instructions about anything, nothing in the kitchen not even water. We managed to have a good stay but the access meant that we were not willing to go out at night which meant being confined to the villa, not always ideal.

In summary, if you don't mind a difficult drive and the odd large beetle then the house provides ample room for 6 (although there are only 3 sun lounges) and has stunning views. Finally, the neighbours are friendly if a little noisey!

Perfect house for paragliding pilots!

  • 5 of 5

Nice house, well situated and equipped. Good contact and service from the owner. Really close from Hartmut's paragliding take off. Only the material to do our own poncha was missing. We will probably rent it again in the future.

Christmas holiday

  • 4 of 5

Lovely house with pool. Fantastic views from the pool terrace. House is just like the pictures. Would stay here again if in Arco de Cahleta. Friendly caretakers Roseanne and Gilberto met us and showed us to the house. Out of the way, so you definitely need the use of a car. We had good weather, so that was a bonus.

Home from Home - absolutely fantastic!

  • 5 of 5

We had a fantastic time and felt very comfortable and at home staying in such a wonderful home. The villa had everything we could have wanted and more. We all enjoyed watching the many dvds available on the fantastic surround sound system.

The pool was simply lovely with great views out over the town and sea. We also made use of the barbeque a few times. It was simply lovely sitting by the pool, with the bbq going looking out at the views.

The area is a quiet residential area with bars and the local town nearby. The main supermarket is near the beach which is a 5 min drive away, but we didn't bother with the beach as why share the beach when you can have your own secluded pool and sunbathing area!

We are not normally ones for going to the same country twice but Madeira is a lovely country and the people were very welcoming, which makes Madeira the first place we would go to again and we would definately stay here again.

Car: recommended

The village of Arco da Calheta is situated on the south west coast of Madeira, about half an hour’s drive from Funchal. The south west coast has the most sun and the least rain on the island. The beach at Calheta is a ten minute drive, and there are several very good restaurants within easy driving distance.
