About the property

Rustic house with all modern comforts

Rustic sec-style country house. XIX finished to rebuild in 2015, ideal home for vacation, situated 3.5 Km from the sea, near the golden sandy beach of Calheta, in a quiet and at the same time in the middle of Arc parish of Calheta.

We can find several cafes, restaurants, pharmacy, small grocery store and church.

It has sea and mountain views.

In the house entrance we found a boat that was put in tribute to former owners who were fishermen.

The house is privileged by a solar array throughout the day with great outdoor space to enjoy sunny afternoons and watch the sunset ..

The Villa is modern and extremely clean, there is also a fantastic swimming pool. All of the rooms are very large and comfortable and the bathrooms are of high quality. The kitchen is kitted out with everything you could possibly need which made it easy when we wanted to cook at home after a long day out. The location of the villa was perfect for us as it was very easy to get around this fantastic island. There is also a sandy rocky beach ( we prefer), restaurants and a supermarket only a couple minutes drive away.

I would like to say a big thank you to Teressa who met our friend from Moscow when they arrived . We have a big problem at airport with renting a car. It was better to use Teresa’s car service.

I cannot really do the welcome we received and the villa and island enough justice. What I can say is that we had the most wonderful time we have ever been.

Stunning in every way

  • 5 of 5

This is a great holiday base with fabulous views, clean and comfortable living space and Teresa was an absolute star!

The pictures don't really do justice to this place which is about half way up the mountain so the views were stunning.

There are local shops and places to eat within walking distance but like many places on Madera its reached by roads that are steep and very bendy. Take your courage in both hands and divert from the main roads with tunnels and you will see a truly spectacular island.

On the first night we arrived after dark and couldn't find it. An SOS call to Teresa and she found us and guided us to the property which we'd just missed. The wildfires have left this area alone although you can see evidence of this at the very top of the hills.

Highly recommended :)

Fint hus, mycket bra hyresvärd!

  • 5 of 5

Ett perfekt hus för oss, en barnfamilj på aktiv semester. Höll allt som utlovades: varm pool, internet, fräscht och nytt. Teresa, hyresvärdinnan, finns nära och hjälper gärna till med både hus och tips för semestern. Jag rekommenderar verkligen att hyra detta hus!

Perfect in every way

  • 5 of 5

Thank you Teresa, we loved Casa do Barco, for many reasons;

Easy Booking, Great Location, comfortable spacious Cottage, with your own private pool and Bbq. Great Wifi And Sat Tv's. The Cottage is totally decked out for all your needs. Teresa is only minutes away and very willing to help and support with local knowledge. Another bonus is that Teresa can assist with Car Hire at a great price, no waiting in lines as there is someone waiting for you at the airport

Super bien équipée, super propre, super bien placée

  • 5 of 5

C'était notre 6ème séjour à Madère, la région de Calheta est la place oū il faut être car c'est là que le climat est le meilleur. Bien sûr une voiture est indispensable pour voir l'est merveilles de l'île. Téresa est une hôte très discrète et la maison correspond en tous point aux photos.

Absoluut supergoed. Een aanrader tot en met! Geweldige prijs-kwaliteitverhouding.

  • 5 of 5

Als het van de kinderen afhing, waren we hier blijven wonen. Zalig klimaat op Madeira, maar ook een zalig huisje. Goed uitgerust, super zwembad, enorm vriendelijke huisbazin, goede bedden. Het huis en zwembad worden ook heel goed onderhouden.

We kunnen hier écht niks slechts over zeggen, behalve misschien twee kleinigheden:

- relatief moeilijk om binnen en buiten te rijden: wat steile helling en bovendien moet je kleine bocht nemen binnen de muren.

- op de foto's was de indeling van het huis niet goed te ontdekken. Ook nogal veel manieren om naar buiten te gaan zodat het wat duurt voor je overal de weg vindt door het huis.

Zonder enige twijfel een absolute aanrader voor iedereen die een huisje wil huren in Madeira.
