A Great Place to Visit

  • 5 of 5

We found the property very easily, following the directions given. The property was every bit as good as the listing description and we would certainly recommend it to anyone heading that way.

From the property we were able to explore a great deal of this beautiful island and it was a pleasure at the end of a long day to relax by the pool.

  The house is fantastic, exceeds expectations, has a great location, amazing sea view, large, lit environments, large and comfortable room, tasteful furniture, full kitchen with new appliances, spacious rooms with comfortable beds and mattresses.

The pool is a show, to be heated, although some cold days, children used a lot. We use quite grill.

Next the house has basic shopping for markets. The nearest beach "Calheta" has a great structure and is very beautiful.

I thank Mr. Ezekiel respond quickly by our contacts, take all our doubts.

Recommend and the next trip to the island of Madeira, be sure that I will rent again.

A perfectly luxurious home from home

  • 5 of 5

We were a family of 4 adults & 4 children (aged 12, 10, 8 & 1). This villa had all mod cons, was clean & very comfortable. The pool & BBQ were well utilized with no complaints! The villa was in a quiet location with locals & other holiday villas in the vicinity. The nearby village had a small shop for essentials but a car was required for a trip to the supermarket in Calheta & daytrips to Funchal, Porto Moniz, Cabo Girao & Machico, all accessable within an hour. The steepness of the roads off the rapido/motorway are not for the fainthearted. They are very steep & can be narrow enough. A small car was easier to 'nip' around in. There is a sandy beach (imported from Morocco apparently) in Calheta, a 5-10 minute drive. We preferred the pool however.

Luxurious house on a beautiful location

  • 5 of 5

We enjoyed staying in this house very much, it was located with a beautiful view in a nice little village. The house was very complete, luxurious and clean. All facilities we expected were present, we even had wifi. From this location we could reach each location in Madeira within about an hour. The supermarket and mosts restaurants were only a 15 minute drive away. We would recommend this house to anyone!

Great place to stay...

  • 4 of 5

My family and I stayed here in July and thought it was fantastic. Great villa with plenty of room and tasteful decor. Heated pool was nice, especially for a swim in the evening. A handful of decent restaurants within 5 minutes drive *Italian Pizzeria at top of hill was friendly and had the best quality food. Car essential. Bigger engine the better, my 1.2 litre Renault struggled on the hilly roads a little bit.

Madeira is beautiful and our 2 weeks holiday there was enhanced by the villa. Definitely recommend.

Nice Villa - recommendable

  • 5 of 5

The house is situated in the village of Arco de Calheta. It is a luxury Villa, completely new, very well equiped with a nice pool, very clean, good kitchen, nice bedrooms & bathrooms, Good privacy. We stayed with 5 people using the 4 bedrooms. But you need a car to go there and move around.

Next supermarket in Calheta. Buy shrimps and grill them at home - there is a grill next to the garage.

Pricing was resonable. No Probs in getting in and out.

Car: recommended

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 reckon that Arco da Calheta has the best micro-climate of all! It’s a quiet location – you are more likely to hear birds than other sounds as is 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.
