Beachfront cottage in sunny Calheta – the ideal hideaway | Cottage do Mar - 112

Private, tranquil, overlooking the beach, the perfect retreat for two

SISTER PROPERTY DO 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. 

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.

Car hire is essential as the villa is located just above sea-level at the bottom of the cliff. As the access is narrow and steep, for your comfort you should hire a smaller size car.

The beautiful Madalena do Mar is the nearest village along the coast. Known for its long bay, wonderful climate and for producing the best bananas on the island, it has a selection of cafés and restaurants, a lovely promenade and partially sandy beach.

Calheta with its man-made golden beaches is popular with tourists and locals alike. The marina is the atsrting point for many sea activities. There is a good choice of bars and restaurants, and other faciltiis such as a bank, pharmacy and branded supermarket.
Calheta is famous for producing the best white rum 'Aguadente', a special ingredient of the typical Madeiran drink 'Poncha'. If you are interested in knowing how the white rum is made, we recommend a tour of the 'Engenho da Calheta' the rum distillery where you can wander around and sample the produce.

Location Description:

A few minutes by car will take you to the resort town of Calheta, which, with its man-made golden beaches, is popular with tourists and locals alike. There is a beautiful marina and a good choice of bars and restaurants. There are a handful of boutique shops and a good supermarket. Calheta is famous for producing the best white rum ‘Aguardente’, a special ingredient of the typical Madeiran drink ‘Poncha’. If you are interested in knowing how the white rum is made, we recommend a tour of the ‘Engenho da Calheta’ the rum distillery where you can wander around and sample the produce. Centro das Artes Casa da Mudas is a new centre located at the edge of a cliff overlooking the sea and was built to host superb art exhibitions, musical performances and other events. Madeira is a paradise for those who enjoy walking and hiking, and Arco da Calheta is ideally situated, having easy access to the road network and most places on the island. Within 15 minutes are the beaches at Ponta do Sol and Ribeira Brava, the esplanades at the surfing paradises of Jardim do Mar and Paul do Mar, the laurisilva forest of Madeira (a UNESCO world heritage site - http://whc.unesco.org/en/list/934) and the many walks in Paul da Serra (1500 meters). An easy 30-minute drive brings you to the capital, Funchal. The airport is 45 minutes away by car.
