Delightful villa with infinity pool and outstanding views | Villa Do Mar III - 28

Located in the sunniest area of Madeira offering tranquility and outstanding views

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

Located on a fajã (a piece of land at the foot of a cliff) in the sunny Calheta area, close to its sister villas (Villa do Mar I and Villa do Mar II) and slightly elevated, Vila do Mar III has been beautifully converted from a farmers barn into a delightful villa with outstanding views and a heated pool that reaches into the living area.

The living area is full of light and has full length sliding windowpanes that provide direct access to the pool and those gorgeous sea-views. It leads to the large fully equipped kitchen with a built-in open barbecue.

All bedrooms are on the first floor and have en-suite shower rooms.

The large swimming pool occupies the front of the villa and is surrounded by garden and some banana trees. A traditional lookout point at the edge of the pool terrace is perfect to appreciate those views during afternoon cocktail hour!

There is a deserted pebble beach approximately 30 metres below the street level, reached via a rough track. Although public, the difficult access makes it virtually private.

A lovely little beach hut is located right on the rocky beach 30 metres below, and shared by, the three Villas do Mar. A front terrace with sunbeds, outdoor shower and built-in barbecue and large table (seating for 16), is complemented with a kitchen (fridge, 4-ring hob) and toilet. 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.

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 DRIVE 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,

Breathtaking!!!!
<p>We have just returned from an amazing holiday at Villa Do Mar III. The pictures of the villa found on the website do not do it justice…it is even better than it looks. People go on about the road down, yes it's daunting at first, but you soon get used to it, and what's waiting for you at the bottom is well worth the ride down. The villa is superb, the pool amazing and the views spectacular. The kitchen is well stocked with equipment and on arrival the owner supplies some basic rations and a bottle of wine…..much appreciated. Also offered is a complimentary meal at the owners seafood restaurant in Camara de Lobos, which is fabulous. At night, sitting out at the "Lookout" with a bottle of wine watching the sunset is surreal….and actually where I proposed to my girlfriend (she said yes). All in all, a fantastic place that we will definitely return to! Top-Tip: Get a hire car!!!!</p>

Congratulations to you both! Thank you so much for your lovely comments. We are in full agreement with you. The drive down is so worth it. Will you be returning for your honeymoon?
Amazing place stunning
What an amazing place for a holiday, absolutely stunning - so beautiful surroundings and decor. The only down side was the very steep and scary access road.

Thank you very much. The road down is challenging for some - but it is so worth it!
Wonderful stay
Beautiful place to stay with very nice pool with view on the ocean! Very quite with bananas and mangos in the garden. One small remark , bed in one room is not good. The road to the house is very steep and you need to be an experienced driver but it is worth doing it !

Thank you very much for your review.
Very nice accommodation with great pool and view
This house/accommodation is very very nice and extremely well suited for a family with kids enjoying a great swimming pool that can be heated up to 28 degrees. The only thing that was a bit too entertaining was the very steep and narrow road down to the house ;-)

Glad to hear that you enjoyed the villa. The access is a little challenging but worth it to stay in such a secluded spot with those amazing sea views.
Wunderschönes Haus mit traumhaftem Meeresblick
Das Haus ist sehr modern mit einer pool-begehbaren Fensterfront . Der Pool wurde gegen Aufpreis für uns geheizt, so dass wir auch im Februar jeden Tag im Pool waren. Die gesamte Ausstattung ist super, wir haben jeden Tag in dem herrlichen Ambiente genossen, auf der Terrasse gelegen und frischen Fisch in der schönen Küche zubereitet. Es blühte alles, auch um das Haus herum; alles umgeben von Bananenplantagen. Es gibt sogar ein Strandhaus, das haben wir in der Jahreszeit aber nicht genutzt. Einzig die Zufahrt zu den Häusern ist steil und eng; wenn sich 2 Autos begegnen muss man sehr vorsichtig sein.

Merci Beaucoup!
Excellent villa with stunning pool and views
The villa was really gorgeous. The only thing that marred our stay was the weather - it rained every day but one! However, we still managed to make good use of the pool and enjoyed exploring western Madeira. The complimentary fish supper at the owner's restaurant was also a lovely and unexpected surprise, as were the fresh mangoes and other fruit left for us!

We are sorry abut the weather. The one thing we cannot guarantee. October can be a month of sun or rain and you were very unlucky. Delighted that everything else was to your liking and hope you will return one day.
A taste of paradise
We stayed at this villa June/July for two weeks, the villa exceeded our expectations. It was a little taste of paradise, the pool was amazing and the view breathtaking. Any little hitches or teething problems were quickly dealt with in such a professional and friendly manner. I cannot recommend this villa enough and in fact the whole Island of Madeira is a must for all travellers. I would just also like to say a huge thank you for making my birthday so memorable with a beautiful meal at the villa do carne, thanks to everyone involved. I would certainly like to return to this villa in the future and will also encourage all my friends and family to book also. First class!!!

Well thank you very much, and we are delighted that you enjoyed all aspects of your holiday. See you again soon we hope.
Superb Villa
We have just returned from a 2 week stay in this beautiful villa. The pictures do not lie it is absolutely stunning, very clean with excellent amenities, the pool was amazing as were the surroundings. I would like to thank Sr Acacio for making our stay so special and for all the help he gave us enabling us to really enjoy our stay, also for the lovely night in Vila da Carne. Big Thank you also to Morrissio our taxi driver/ tour guide. Although the access road is pretty scary work is due to start very soon on amending this problem. I would recommend this Villa and would love to return to it. Madeira and its people are very special.

Traumurlaub in schönem Haus an herrlicher Lage
Sehr freundlicher Empfang - Gepflegtes, schönes Haus - Herrliche, ruhige Lage inmitten von Bananenbäumen - Einzig die steile und schmale Zufahrt ohne Ausweichstellen war gewöhnungsbedürftig - Wir würden jederzeit wieder kommen

Well we can't ask for a better review! Thank you very much for staying at Villa Do Mar III.
Better than the pictures!
We hoped that the villa would be as beautiful as the pictures show, but is was better! Although the access road is really special - we loved our stay in this villa (especially the pool which we used every day). We made every day trips around the isle and were altough impressed by the friendly people. Our plan is to come back one day!
