About Helen Bäuml
We visited the island for the first time in October 2018 - and fell in love after only 24 hours. For some years we had been traveling and searching for the perfect spot for the two of us. Although we enjoyed our time as entrepreneurs in Germany, the yearning for more sunshine and ocean views never let us go. Anyone who has ever been to Madeira knows about the unbelievable diversity of the island: impressive cliffs, enchanted fairy tale forests, inviting natural pools, impressive mountains and overwhelming waterfalls. Together with the wonderful openness and joie de vivre of the inhabitants of Madeira it quickly became clear to us: Here we belong.
Helen Bäuml purchased this apartment in 2019
Why Helen Bäuml chose Arco da Calheta
If you have ever been to Madeira you know that here, more than anywhere else in the world, location is VERY important. Madeira is full of little microclimate zones: You can travel through a single tunnel and find a completely different weather. Casa Serena is in the warmest, sunniest spot on the island and located right on the "banana line" which is the safest guarantee for sun (above it is too cool and cloudy, too low and you can get a lot of dampness from the sea). It is located on the side of the bay with less wind (we can still get strong winds here, but without having to worry about damages). Best of all is of course the extraordinary ocean view from every apartment. 180° degrees of ocean, as well as beautiful mountains, village lights, perfect for stargazing, watching ships and sea mammals and even paragliders.
What makes this apartment unique
Nothing makes us happier than sharing the magic of this island with guests! We stay in the top part of the house, so if we can help with any questions about the apartment or the island, just ring the bell.
