Photos and Description of this Madeira holiday villa

This is a 3 bedroom super luxury villa located in arco da calheta in an urbanization. As said before the property has 3 luxury modern style bedrooms, 3 luxurious modern bathrooms, new modern kitchen, laundry room, etc... The property was recently decorated with high quality furniture which is extremely comfortable. The villa also includes cable TV and also a DVD/CD hi-tech sound system. The property on the outside has a lovely garden with a big pool and a BBQ area and also a big parking space in case you need it. The property has a magnificent view of arco da calheta and the ocean and it is also well located to all the local services are all at walking distance. You only need a car if you want to go to the beach witch is 5 minutes away. If you are looking for privacy, relaxation and luxury this is the property for you.

Travel: Funchal is the only airport on the island and it is approx. 45 mins from the house. We recommend hiring a car at the airport but keep it small. Once off the main roads Madeira roads are narrow.

Distance: Funchal city is more or less 37km from Arco da Calheta. The nearest shop to the villa is 2 minutes away.

Supassed expectations!

  • 4 of 5

We spent Christmas 2014 at the villa and had a wonderful time. The villa was beautiful. We swam in the heated pool every day and enjoyed using it as a base for exploring.

Lovely Villa! Everything you could need!

  • 4 of 5

The journey from the airport was very straight forward in our hire car although we did take a wrong turn close to the office but a very nice local shop keeper shut his shop to show us the way. Ezekiel the Manager met us at the office, was very friendly and gave us lots of information about the Island and showed us all around the villa. The villa was everything we had hoped for and more. The photo's don't do it justice. We used the lovely warm pool every day and cooked our Christmas lunch on the BBQ. A car is probably needed to get around the area although on New Years Eve we used a taxi to take us to and from Funchal to watch the spectacular firework display. There were four adults in 3 separate bedrooms and the villa was big enough to not get under each others feet. We left feeling completely relaxed. Madeira is a beautiful country and we would love to come back in the near future.

Wonderful villa makes for a great holiday

  • 5 of 5

Had a wonderful week in this very spacious villa for just the two of us. It has all the mod cons you'll need for a self catering holiday, breakfasts were always at the villa, then we explored the many restaurants around the island for evening meals, after exploring the island or having a lazy day by the pool.

Ezekiel gave an excellent introduction to the villa and the local amenities. We only had one small issue with the TV, which Mr Alberto sorted out for us. Just a note to English visitors that will spend any amount of time watching the box, there are very few English channels available, a handful at most and they are news based. However you shouldn't need the TV as there is plenty to do in Madeira itself and you have the pool just a step out of the living room.

Definitely recommend Golden View Villa as a great place to stay and use as your base whilst on Madeira.

If we had the 450,000 Euros spare we'd might even consider buying it!

Good Choice for Relaxing Holidays

  • 5 of 5

The Golden View Villa is a very nice modern villa located in the centre of the village Arco da Calheta. It offers plenty of space on a high standard of comfort. The top highlight is the magnificent pool and surrounding garden which offers a spectacular free view on the ocean.

Shops for daily needs are only a few minutes walk away, but for exploring the beautiful scenery of Madeira with its spectacular views from the cliffs to the ocean, visiting other highly interesting places like Funchal (as one example only) and to be able to make easy shoppings in bigger markets (the nearest Continente supermarket is about 12 km away direction Funchal) a rental car is highly recommended. Also for an easy access from the airport (about 45 km away) to the villa.

The owner of the house is a very friendly and helpful Gentleman originating from the neighbouring village. We had in the beginning technical problems with the pool (water too cold) and with the TV. He resolved this problems immediately and gave several times valuable advice about good restaurants, places to visit, etc.. He is proud of his home island and if his guests show interest he was always there for a god hint.

In summary we are of the opinion that this vial is a very good choice for a nice stay on Madeira for guests who prefer a certain amount of independence during their holidays. We can recommend to book this property.

We hope to have you and familly or friends again in the near future as you were one of our very best guests. Muito obrigado!

Hols in Madeira

  • 5 of 5

The house and weather made the best of our holidays in Madeira. The house is bigger than it looks in the pictures and we found it quite lively, clean and modern. We spent most of our time in the pool area which is perfectly sized..not too big not too small. Ezequiel, the Property Manager was very helpful with all our requests and questions. The area of Calheta has almost everything you need at a short distance (but you need a car for sure as is away 40mins from Funchal and the airport!): supermarket, beach and even service for your rented car in case anything goes wrong!! Local people was really nive and helpful. The island is not a beach destination, but it has everything you need to overcome this: excellent weather, excellent food, excellent wines, excellent roads, pretty towns, walks in the wild and good shopping. I do reccomend it for a relaxing time away from the day to day worries of a city like London.

Arco da Calheta is a very attractive village which has a social centre, cafes and a number of small supermarkets which sell everything you need. The locals record that Arco da Calheta has the best micro-climate of all! It’s a quiet location – you are more likely to hear the birds than traffic as is in a private urbanization. The Calheta sand Beach Hotel which is down by the beach has a spa which the public can use and there is a leisure centre, banks, a big supermarket named 'Pinco Doce' and the Iates marina with their restaurants. Driving towards Funchal you will find Madelena do Mar where there are restaurants and bars and a rocky beach. Further on is Ribeira Brava, with another rocky beach. There is also a small market, a large supermarket, banks and a number of restaurants. Golf: Madeira has 2 golf courses only 40 minutes away by car.
