Traumhafte Villa in wunderschöner Lage

  • 5 of 5

Das Haus hat unsere hohen Erwartungen bei weitem noch übertroffen. Es liegt wunderschön oberhalb von Calheta und ist sehr schön eingerichtet; alles Notwendige ist vorhanden. Falls mal Langeweile aufkommt, gibt es Kinderspielsachen, Brettspiele und Bücher. Traumhaft ist der Blick von der großen Terrasse über den Sky-Pool auf das Meer.

Die Vermieterin ist sehr freundlich und stets bemüht mit Rat und Tat den Gästen zur Seite zu stehen. Auch die Betreuung durch Jorge vor Ort hat wunderbar geklappt.

Wir haben zwei wunderschöne Wochen auf Madeira verbracht und kommen auf jeden Fall wieder.

Owner's Response: Liebe Gäste, vielen Dank für ihre Bewertung. Es hat mich besonders gefreut, dass die Organisation von Jorge mit dem Silvestermenu im "Onda Azul Restaurant" und der Transfer zum Silvesterfeuerwerk nach Funchal so toll geklappt hat. Das Feuerwerk zählt ja zu den schönsten der Welt und ist schon eine Reise wert. Das Wetter war ja im November und Dezember fast noch sommerlich und es freut mich auch, dass sie die Umgebung sowie die ganze Insel kennenlernen konnten. Viele Grüße an die gesamte Familie und einen guten Start für 2018.. Auf ein Wiedersehen und herzliche Grüße vom gesamten Team! Ihre Jessica Dear guests, thank you very much for your good review and feedback. I am happy that Jorge could arrange a New Year menue at Onda Azul in Calheta and arrange the transfer to Funchal to see the fireworks. The firework is one of the most famous in the world. The weather during November and December was very good nearly summer temperatures and we are really happy that you could discover the closer surrounding etc. Best greetings to the entire family and have a good start for 2018 from the whole team! yours Jessica

Was für ein Paradies!

  • 5 of 5

Sonnenschein, Wind, Wandern, Schnorcheln, Essen, Besichtigen, Sonnenbaden und Leben in einer traumhafte schönen Villa mit atemberaubenden Blick - das fühlt sich nach Paradies an! Dabei ist das Haus in Estreito da Calheta fast noch schöner als auf den Bildern. Die vorzügliche Beschreibung der Vermieterin trifft den Punkt: Schon ihre Reiseunterlagen machen Lust auf viel Madeira.

Die Lage ist sehr geeignet als Ausgangspunkt für Levada-Wanderungen, und auch nach Funchal oder nach Porto Moniz ist es nicht weit. Falls man überhaupt die schöne Terrasse und den Pool verlassen möchte, denn überall ist es so angenehm und alles bestens ausgestattet, dass man mehr eigentlich gar nicht braucht. Das Haus ist sehr gepflegt und sauber, der Service freundlich, verlässlich und zuvorkommend. Kleiner Laden in Fußweite, viele nette Lokale in der Nähe, freundliche Menschen im Dorf, angenehmes Klima: ob aktiv oder faulenzend, wir haben uns extrem wohlgefühlt!

Owner's Response: Vielen lieben Dank für Ihre netten Worte und das tolle, positive Feedback! Wir freuen uns immer sehr, wenn unsere Gäste so schöne Ferien verbringen konnten und tolle Eindrücke mit nachhause nehmen. Wir bleiben in Verbindung und vielleicht kommen sie alle einmal wieder und wandern dann die schönsten Wanderwege nochmal! Tauchen mit Delfinen im Atlantik und dem "Lobosonda Team" war auch eine unserer schönsten Familien-Erfahrungen...diesen wunderbaren Meerestieren unter qualifizierter Anleitung ganz nah zu sein ist einfach unvergesslich. Bis hoffentlich bald wieder in Estreito da Calheta liebe Grüße vom 17°West Team

Marvelous place and hospital staff!

  • 5 of 5

A beautiful villa with a marvelous view!

Arriving late at night, we had some problems finding the house, but the sweet staff came to our rescue and met us in the nearby village, and escorted us first to the supermarket and then to the villa. Althrough out or stay they were so friendly, and fast to help us with any needs! They brought a delicious traditional Christmas bread, and helped us out with planning our trip.

The house is absolutely beautiful, very spacious and well equipped, the only downside was that it was very cold during our stay, and since the house has no heat, it was a cold first night, however the staff had put out some Madeira wine and cake to warm us this cold night. There was also plug in heaters, and the fireplace gave good warmth.

Overall a lovely vacation spot, and we would definitely recommend this house to anyone vacationing in Madeira!

A perfect place in a wonderful island

  • 5 of 5

Thanks a lot for letting us stay in your home. The villa is absolutely perfect for our needs. Plenty of space, everything fresh and stylish. We loved the pool, the barbecue, the fireplace and the fully equiped kitchen. A cup of coffee on the patio in the early morning watching miles and miles of the atlantic far below is true life quality :)

Wifi worked fast and smooth with no problems. The welcoming and service from the staff on place was fast and flexible. We have nothing but good things to say about the villa. We will be back in the future and rent the villa again,

The villa gets the best rating we can give and we can truly recommend it to other visitors in Madeira

Car: recommended

The (registered and licensed) Villa 17 degrees west is located in a prime location in the vineyard just 5 minutes from the beach.

The spacious pool villa is da Calheta just 25 km from Funchal, in the picturesque wine town of Estreito.

This western part of Madeira is one of the sunniest parts of the island. Just minutes away from the house, you can discover the mountain world with which UNESCO protected laurel forests on your tours.

Walking past hydrangeas and the spherical white and blue agapanthus flowers and discover the Levadatouren small waterfalls.

The neighboring towns of Prazeres and Jardim do Mar is only 5 minutes away by car. Calheta is the ideal starting point for beautiful car trips around the island or for the many Levada walks that often start in the west of the island.

Everything is 'around the corner'

Fresh bread and food you get in a typical small shops with Cafe below the house.

More mini companies as a hairdresser or quaint bars are within walking distance. You are in the heart of Madeira and experience no major tourism in Calheta. In green lawns embedded, there is a very nice playground.

In just 5 minutes drive in a very well-stocked supermarket on the beach and get there fresh fish, fruit, vegetables lots of breads etc. The Modern Art Museum 'Casa das Mudas' offering spectacular views of the harbor and the bipartite Calheta beach. One can well from one side to the other swimming beach side in a calm sea.

In Calheta Hotel on the weekend often hosts live music. Frequently buffet with changing themes offered.

In Prazeres 5-minute drive from the house, you can stock up on Sunday at the farmers market with fresh vegetables and fruits and drink with a mini Zoo Cafe in a beautiful tropical garden (Quinta Paedagogica). Porto Moniz with the famous natural swimming pools and good seafood restaurants you can easily connect to an island tour by driving in Prazeres over the mountain toward Rabacal.

There you can enjoy spectacular views of the volcanic green landscape and the natural pools. Rabacal offers a well-known hiking trail. The way back to Calheta may cause the lighthouse with its views of the spectacular rocky landscape and end z. B. in Jardim do Mar. Drink there a Portuguese Galao in the Bar O Portinho (and try the sandwiches and mussels) on the seafront or a freshly squeezed juice in the city center in the local bar 'Joe's Bar' with an enchanted backyard.

Pure nature:

Who has observed dolphins and whales with the large 17 ° West binoculars from the terrace of the villa, can also take a boat tour z. B. with the Lobosonda, the restored and TV known whale and dolphin watching boat book in Calheta on the beach.

The natural world is unique and the view from the water to the many waterfalls and the interesting coastline unique.

Festivals throughout the year:

In Madeira there is a possibility, still deeply immersed in old village traditions. Easter is a great experience and other festivals are often around and take in the town centers.

Take the Flower Festival, Easter Festival, the carnival, the Atlantic Festival in Funchal, the olives, wine or lemon hard part? You should do it. These festivals are easily breathed beautifully and not touristy but tradition.

Trip to Funchal:

New Year and Christmas, z. B. worth making a detour from Calheta to Funchal. The choice of festivals is great and always a special experience. The New Year's Eve fireworks display is world famous and is one of the most beautiful fireworks in the world. Full Funchal shines from November in bright gloss and in the street cafes, people sit up late at night with pleasant temperatures.

In the summer months you can visit the great Atlantic Festival in Funchal and also here experienced spectacular fireworks. On the last night will start the great final fireworks.

Of course, part of a visit to Funchal times a visit to the world famous Reid's Hotel in the already resided the Empress Sissi and Winston Churchill. The 'Reid's Tea Time' is a must under Teefreunden. Reserve before please long and simply enjoy the view of the wonderful terrace overlooking the sea.
