Description

SISTER PROPERTY TO VILLA DO MAR I, VILLA DO MAR II AND VILLA DO MAR III

This very private, cosy stone cottage located just above what is virtually a private beach for the few neighbouring properties, was beautifully converted from an old fisherman's cottage that is believed to be the first dwelling on this fajã (a flat strip of land at the foot of a cliff).

The whole cottage is open plan. The comfortable sitting area is a veritable balcony over the beach and sea and is separated from the bedroom area by two doors that open the full width of the cottage, allowing you to wake up to that breath-taking view. Further back is the modern shower room and the fully equipped kitchen that still features the original bread oven.

Outside is a very private yard with overflowing bougainvillea, which features an outdoor dining table, a portable barbecue and a couple of sunbeds under a private curtained canopy, and again benefits from that spectacular sea-view. The Cottage is secluded and very private and off the beaten track and accessed via a narrow steep driveway. Itis perched above the beach, and affords astounding views - you feel as one with the ocean.

A lovely little beach hut is located right on the rocky beach 30 metres below, and shared by the three Villas do Mar, access is via a pathway with steps that leads from the level of the Villas do Mar down to the beach.

There are many walks around Calheta and easy access to the plateau of Paul da Serra, with its many levada walks, makes this villa perfectly located for walking in Madeira and for enjoying a lovely holiday surrounded by the beautiful Madeira countryside.

Madeira
Some seven hundred kilometres west of the African coast, Madeira is a stunning mountainous emerald island, lapped by the warm waters of the Gulf Stream. The first island to be discovered by the Portuguese navigators in 1419, Madeira became an important resting place on the long trip to the new world. From these humble beginnings, the holiday trade was formed and this spectacular island, which used to be the favourite place of the rich and famous, is now the preferred choice of all sorts of visitors, from those seeking year-round warm temperatures to nature lovers and sightseers, sports and active enthusiasts of all ages. Culture, history, stunning nature, a myriad of sea and land activities, added to a great foodie scene means Madeira has something for everyone. No matter where you go on the island you are rewarded by fabulous scenery, tiny villages and friendly people. With a population of over 100,000, Funchal is not only the capital, but also the 'heart' of Madeira and home to many of the islanders. This makes it a busy, chic, cosmopolitan and fun city, full of shops, shopping centres, bars, cafés and a great variety of restaurants and entertainment; a vibrant, cosmopolitan town where historic splendour and breath-taking natural beauty combine with a thoroughly modern atmosphere.

If there's anything specific you'd like for your next stay, feel free to let us know in advance. Until then, take care and see you soon!
    Gemütliches und traumhaft schön gelegenes Cottage, wir haben uns vom ersten Moment an rundum wohl gefühlt. Trotz des wenigen Platzes tolle Ausstattung inkl. eigener Terrasse, Zugang zum Privatstrand (ca. 30m unterhalb, den man sich mit den anderen Häusern am Hang teilt) und sogar neu gebautem, kleinen Pool! Der Kontakt zu Bruno war sehr freundlich, er hat immer sehr schnell auf unsere Fragen geantwortet und hilfreiche Informationen gegeben. Uns fällt, aus unserer Sicht, nichts Negatives zu der Unterkunft ein. Vielleicht nur ein paar Hinweise: Die Hütte liegt in einer relativ abgelegenen Gegend. Man benötigt auf jeden Fall ein Auto, auch für z.B. Einkäufe oder Restaurantbesuche. Wer mehr "Leben" sucht ist hier falsch. Die Zufahrt zur Hütte am Hang entlang ist in der Tat eng und steil. Aber wir fanden, man gewöhnt sich schnell daran. Die Küche ist voll ausgestattet, aber etwas eng und z.T. niedrig, für größere Menschen. Herzlichen Dank an Bruno und das Team, wir kommen gerne wieder!

    Thank you so much for your kind words and for sharing your experience at our cosy cottage! We're thrilled to hear that you felt right at home and enjoyed the beautiful surroundings, including the private terrace and access to the beach. It's wonderful to know that Bruno was able to assist you promptly and efficiently throughout your stay. We appreciate your feedback regarding the remote location and accessibility. While we understand that the secluded setting may not be for everyone, we're glad you found the access road manageable and the amenities satisfactory. Your comment about the kitchen being a bit cramped for taller individuals is duly noted, and we'll certainly take this into consideration for future improvements. We would be absolutely delighted to welcome you back anytime! Please don't hesitate to reach out if you plan to return—we'd love to have you back for another relaxing getaway.
    Ein Traum. Noch besser als auf den Bildern. Bootshaus am Meer zusätzlich. Perfekt für Frühstück. Auto nötig. Recht eng. Nicht mit dem Cybertruck anreisen :-)

    Dear Stefan, We're thrilled to hear that your stay was a dream and even better than the pictures! It's fantastic that you enjoyed the boathouse by the sea, finding it perfect for breakfast – what a delightful way to start the day. Thank you for the heads-up about the narrow roads; your comment about the Cybertruck brought a smile. A car is indeed necessary in such locations, and we appreciate your humorous note. If there's anything else you'd like to share about your experience or any suggestions for future guests, please feel free. We hope to welcome you back for another dreamy stay in the future. Best regards, António
    Little paradise! Beautiful!

    Thank you for your wonderful review! We're thrilled to hear that you found our little paradise beautiful. It was a pleasure hosting you, and we hope to welcome you back for more unforgettable moments.

    Dieses kleine Appartment direkt am Meer ist ein absolutes Juwel für alle, die eine tolle Aussicht und idyllische Ruhe dem "blitzeblank Luxus" vorziehen. Wir haben uns hier super wohl gefühlt und uns jeden Tag nach unseren Ausflügen wieder auf "daheim" gefreut. Bruno war super hilfsbereit und es hat uns an nichts gefehlt. Hotel'sche Perfektion findet man hier nicht, aber dafür eine Wohnung mit unendlich viel Charakter und einem Traum-Ausblick! Danke für die schöne Zeit!

    Thank you for your kind words about Cottage do Mar!
    What a fantastic calming sea view this little cottage offers! We loved waking up to the sounds of the waves crashing down below & watching the gorgeous sunset from the privacy of our patio. The location feels like we truly are on our own little island. Unless we drove out into the villages/towns, some days we wouldn't see another person. So peaceful! Bruno met us at check-in & kindly guided us to the cottage. He showed us where things were located around the cottage which we found very helpful. We were also welcomed with several items such as bread, milk, sparkling wine, fruits which was very nice for tired travelers. The rental has just about everything you might need (appliances). The washing machine really came in handy and we used the BBQ on Christmas day when we figured most restaurants would be closed. We walked down the 130 steps (yes, I counted) from the private access beach hut down to the pebbled beach 3 of the 7 days we stayed there. We saw 2 people max on each of those days. The weather in Madeira was pleasant (esp compared to winter in London) but it was not sunbathing weather (plus it rained) else we would have made better use of the nice private beach hut. The cottage was pretty clean overall but the floors were quite dusty upon arrival (we like to walk barefoot inside the house so we can fully relax). I had to sweep up the whole place first since we felt dust on our feet after we walked around inside. I did mention this to Bruno that the cleaners must have forgotten to sweep/vacuum & mop the floors, for the sake of future renters. Like the listing says, it is a VERY steep & narrow climb down a 1-lane driveway to get to the cottage (the other side is the drop from the cliff). Although it might be a bit scary & challenging for some drivers, it wasn't too bad for us as my husband is good at navigating challenging roads. However, we did make it a point to get back to the cottage before it got dark, to be on the safe side. Note - Pack (or buy) your toiletries (soap, shampoo/conditioner, lotion as they are not provided) and bring a pair of slippers (or flip flips) for inside the cottage as the living room has bumpy cobble stones. Also, we used the property booking agent (Our Madeira) to help book us a car rental. The prices were fair & airport pick up /drop off was convenient so I'd recommend getting your car rental through them also. We had a lovely & relaxing holiday. Thank you so much!

    Logement vraiment superbe pour 2 personnes, nous n'avons malheureusement pas pu profiter de l'exterieur vu la meteo.. Attention a l'accès qui n'est pas ėvident pour conducteurs mal å l'aise avec fortes pentes et voie etroite...

    Die Unterkunft liegt eingebettet zwischen Meer und Bananenplantage, nachts kann man das große Panoramafenster geöffnet lassen und dem Rauschen des Meeres lauschen, die Unterkunft ist sehr sauber und mit allen was man braucht /brauchen könnte (Toaster, Taps und Filtermaschine, Mixer, Entsafter, Waschmaschine und Geschirrspülmaschine). Die Straße zur Unterkunft ist einspurig und etwas abenteuerlich, aber sicher. Sehr freundlicher Kontakt

    Thank you very much for your comments.

    We had a fabulous stay ! The villa is in a spectacular position, right above the little beach which isn't private ...but wasn't very busy when we were there. Swimming was wonderful in August, quite awkward getting in and out over the big pebbles but we managed. There was no strong current as mentioned by one reviewer ( maybe there is at different times of year) We loved having the use of the beach house too..... fabulous to take food and drink down for the day and be able to keep everything cool in the fridge. We only had one night when the owner's son and friends were down there and although they were very friendly and let us have a shelf in the fridge, we decided to cook back up at the villa for more peace. The villa has everything you could need and is very stylish and clean. Kitchen is well equipped and we were left bread, fruit and a bottle of Fizz which was very thoughtful. The road to the villa is scary as other guests have mentioned but we managed and since we wanted to have a peaceful week just staying by the beach we ended up just venturing out a couple of times anyway. Good supermarket in Calheta just 5 mins away .....good tip is to go there to stock up before you check in ! We will definitely be back ...just for the beautiful sunsets that you see from the terrace and french doors!

    Hi, We stayed at the property first week of july. I can only say that the property is exactly what you see in the pictures and more. We opened the sliding door to the living room and never closed it once during our stay as it was such a beautiful view and the sound of the waves was so soothing. The property is very clean and gave everything that we would have wanted. Communication was perfect, host was punctual and friendly. We had a great stay and will return next year. It is a quiet and safe location, couldn't have asked for more to be honest. Enjoy Regards Declan

    We had a very lovely stay. I you are looking for a place to calm down and be for yourself, this is perfect. The apartment was very well equipped and clean. Also access to the private beach was great, although the waves were to strong at that time (May) for us to swim there. We can imagine re-visiting

    Dear Simon, Thank you for reviewing your stay at Cottage do Mar. We are happy to hear that this was one of the most beautiful spots you have ever stayed. Kind Regards, António Kin

    A jaw dropping location overlooking a pebbly beach and breaking surf. Positioned off the road close to the bottom of a private track that is narrow, twisting, steep in parts and two way, no real passing places - perhaps one. Not for the nervous but very private - we only met one vehicle in 9 days. If you want peace with the sound of the sea this is for you. You will need a vehicle, nothing in strolling distance. Also I recommend a small vehicle and take out insurance to cover the excess! Fantastic sunsets!

    Un endroit de rêve, calme, tranquillité et une vue imprenable sur l'océan. Un intérieur soigné décoré avec goût et très bien équipé. Une terrasse très accueillante. Cherry on the cake, le "cabanon" sur la plage quasi privative. Tout le confort que l'on peut imaginer s'y trouve : Très grande terrasse ombragée, bains de soleil, tables, chaises, barbecue, douche extérieure, sanitaire et la mer.

    Es war perfekt. Mitten in den Bananen Plantagen, das einzige was man hört ist das Meeresrauschen mit dem wunderschönen Blick. Mit den Farben vom Sonnenaufgang aufwachen und draußen beim Essen den Sonnenuntergang zusehen. Es war sogar noch viel schöner und komfortabler als gedacht. Würden es sofort nochmal buchen.

    After working from home for more than a year I could have not asked for a better place to unwind and de-stress myself, perfect location away from hustle and bustle of a busy tourist district yet close enough for everything that you will need to stay there, the views, access to the private beach and constant sound of waves crashing into the rocks will surely take your breath away. There is a narrow steep access road that leads to the property, if you are not comfortable driving on such road then you should rent a smaller car. Bruno , who I communicated with was very prompt and provide me all the necessary information that I needed for my stay.

    Wonderful place, spectactular view.

    We spent a week before christmas in this very beautiful cottage which is very tastefully decorated. We enjoyed the wide look over the ocean and the sound of the waves. Everything we needed was there. A plus was the nearby beach with beach house. Bruno the maintaner greeted us very friendly and told us that we could call him if we had a problem. You need to be a good driver for the small and steep path down to the cottage, it is good to hire a small car. Thank you very much, we had a wonderful time.

    From the moment we booked Bruno was in contact with villa details, places to go, places to eat, etc. The view from the villa was amazing however the road to it gets the pulse racing - iy=ts quite steep!!! Villa is small but perfect for 2 people with evreything you need for a short getaway.

    eine perfekte Lage, sehr geschmackvolle Ausstattung, Blick vom Bett auf das Meer, Freisitz mit Liegen, alle Mahlzeiten auf dem wunderschönen Freisitz mit viel Charme, eine wunderschönes Atmosphäre für einen ruhigen und privaten Urlaub zu zweit am Meer. Wir fanden es insgesamt sogar noch schöner als in die Beschreibung und auf den Bildern angeben. 10 Punkte PLUS.

    sehr schön!!!

    Gerne wieder, besonders schön war das wir das Strandhaus auch für uns alleine hatten. Ideal für einen schönen Grillnachmittag mit schwimmen im Meer. Das Apartment hat alles was man braucht, der Service war super und wir haben uns sehr wohl gefühlt. Alles war sauber und die Kleinigkeiten für den ersten Tag waren toll und vom Vermieter mitgedacht.Etwas herausfordernd war der Weg zum Haus, aber für einen geübte Fahrer mit Ruhe kein Problem.

    Trotz ein paar Abstrichen eine der schönsten Unterkünfte, die wir je hatten.

    Die Lage ist traumhaft, und absolut ruhig. Der schönste Platz von Madeira :-). Die Einrichtung war sehr modern und geschmackvoll und wir haben uns sehr wohl gefühlt. Super auch die Panorama-Fester, die man zu 2/3 öffnen kann. Es war alles vorhanden, was man von einem Ferienhaus erwartet. Man muss allerdings ein routinierter Autofahrer sein, um die sehr steile, einspurige, kurvige Straße sicher fahren zu können. cccccccccir hatten Glück und es kam nie jemand entgegen :-)

    Vielen Dank für Ihre Anmerkungen und es tut uns leid, dass die Kontaktnummer verwirrt wurde. Wir hatten die neue Nummer bei einem Personalwechsel gesendet, aber aus irgendeinem Grund hatten Sie sie nicht. Um eine solche idyllische Lage zu erreichen, gibt es eine steile, enge Straße, die sich aber lohnt. Danke nochmal.
    Super Lage, perfekte Aussicht aufs Meer

    Chillen auf Madeira

    Wir haben unsere Zeit im Cottage do Mar wirklich genossen!
    Jeden Abend beim Essen den Sonnenuntergang zu sehen und zum Rauschen des Meeres einzuschlafen war eine tolle Erfahrung.
    Die Zufahrtsstraße ist zwar gewöhnungsbedürftig, aber, wenn man kein Fahranfänger ist, definitiv machbar und für madeirische Verhältnisse nicht außergewöhnlich.
    Echt toll ist auch die Küchenausstattung, die wirklich keine Wünsche offen lässt.
    Das WLAN funktioniert tadellos, zum Fernseher kann ich keine Angaben machen, den haben wir nicht verwendet.

    Vielen Dank. Wir freuen uns sehr, dass Sie Ihren Aufenthalt genossen haben.

    I think we could not have found a better place to stay in Madeira! Perfect little spot away from crowds with a private beach and beach cottage just a few stairs below the apartment - loved it! The sea front terasse is perfect for breakfasts, sunny in the afternoon and great for an evening BBQ. I would highly recommend this accomodation to anybody who is on the lookout for a pieceful, relaxing, sunny stay on the island!

    Schmal, steil aber easy, das waren die Worte des Mitarbeiters der Weg zu unserem Haus fuhr. Wir haben in der Vergangenheit schon viele enge und steile Straßen befahren. Die Breite reicht gerade mal für ein Auto, das ganze steil den Berg runter, an vielen Stellen zum Abhang nicht gesichert. Auf der ganzen Strecke eine Möglichkeit zum Ausweichen für den Gegenverkehr und diese ohne Randbefestigung. Und das ganze ja wieder hoch. Wir haben uns genau 15 Minuten im Haus aufgehalten die Koffer wieder ins Auto gebracht und uns ein Hotel genommen. Die Vorstellung diesen Weg jeden Tag hoch und wieder runter zu müssen hat nichts mehr mit Urlaub zu tun. In der Beschreibung der Lage des Hauses wird mit keinem Wort auf diesen Zufahrtsweg hingewiesen. Dieser Umstand ist für einen seriösen Vermieter unakzeptabel

    We are sorry that you found the access road to the Cottage unpleasant. The road is challenging but has been used by many of our guests in the past 7 years, accessing the 3 amazing Villa Do Mar houses. We have however taken note of your comments.
    aussergewöhnlich

    Was für ein schönes Ferienhaus. Einfach wunderschön. Hoch über dem Atlantik. Es gibt nur das Geräusch der Brandung. Kein Autoverkehr. Nichts. Nur der Ozean. Der Besitzer supernett. Klare Empfehlung von uns.

    Fantastic comments and a great recommendation. Thank you very much. Fantastische Kommentare und eine tolle Empfehlung. Vielen Dank.

    Un appartamento da sogno, fornito di tutto il necessario curato in ogni minimo dettaglio, vista mozzafiato, ospitalità veramente familiare, disponibilità e grande aiuto in ogni momento! Se non ci fosse un'isola meravigliosa da visitare si potrebbe fare vacanza non uscendo mai da quella casetta. Molto grati d'aver potuto vivere un'esperienza oceanica da una posizione così speciale.
