Ideal for couples or families, sunny area surrounded by vines | Casa Vista Bela - 95

Sunny Calheta - Ideal location for sun, sea and exploring

This is a great holiday villa, whatever you wish to do whilst in Madeira. Located in sunny Calheta, with great views over vineyards and banana plantations to the sea, it is only a five minute drive to the beach, sea and marina, but also perfectly located for exploring the island and with easy access to the Paul da Serra plateau where you will find the best walking conditions.

The entrance leads directly to the very spacious open-plan living space with lounge and dining areas, which leads onto the long front terrace with superb panoramic views to the sea, outdoor dining facilities and sun-beds.

The large fully equipped kitchen is off the living room and opens up to the back terrace where you will find the large built-in barbecue and the separate laundry room.

The living area also leads to the large ground floor bedroom with double bed and en-suite, to the second bedroom with two children's single beds and to the family bathroom.

At the top of the stairs is a great leisure room with two sofa beds (for the 9th and 10th person), a children's desk and a stand with a selection of books and activities for children, as well as a selection of table games. The front balcony is a great place for an evening drink contemplating the wonderful views over the vineyards and banana plantations to the sea.

There are two further bedrooms (one with a double bed, the other with two single beds) on this floor, as well as a family shower room.

Overall a great spacious villa that works as well for a couples as for families, and is perfectly located to benefit from the sun and sea and as a base to explore or for walking holidays.

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.

The nicest house with the nicest view

Thank you very much.
Sehr schön und gut ausgestattetes Haus, gut geeignet für 2 Paare und Kinder.
<p><span>Sehr schön und gut ausgestattetes Haus, gut geeignet für 2 Paare und Kinder. Die Küche ist top ausgestattet, schöne Terrasse zum draußen essen, auch den Griller haben wir einmal benutzt. Die Matratzen sind eher hart, wir mögen das, aber manch einer ist da empfindlich. Den Gastgebern gehört das Cafe gleich daneben, wo man im Laden so ziemlich alles bekommt, auch Werkzeug usw. Die Sandwiches dort sind auch zu empfehlen, ebenso der Poncha. In der Nachbarschaft gibt es einige Hunde und Hähne, die einen stören könnten, wenn man einen leichten Schlaf hat. Ansonsten günstig gelegen, man ist gleich auf der Schnellstraße. Unbedingt einen Besuch in der Pukiki Tiki Bar machen und einen Cocktail trinken! Wir waren im Jänner dort, da kann es nachts schon etwas kalt werden und man muss den Heizstrahler einschalten. Insgesamt eine tolle Unterkunft, würden wir auf jeden Fall wieder nehmen.</span></p>

Vielen Dank für Ihre Anmerkungen. Wir freuen uns, dass Sie eine schöne Zeit hatten.
perfect holiday villa, great location
Beautiful, well maintained and clean Casa in a perfect location with sweeping sea views surrounded by vineyards and banana plantations. The wide double aspect balcony means you can chose sun or shade all day long and there is plenty of outdoor furniture and a traditional barbecue. It's easy to find just a few minutes from the VE3. David and his family are very welcoming, they serve lovely Tostas and home made garlic bread at Café Do 99 just a short walk away, and they have a small shop with basic essentials, wine and beer. There is a larger supermarket 10 minutes walk away but we didn't need to go there. Don't miss an evening or three in the Pukiki Tiki bar 5 mins walk down the road to the East. Calheta Beach is within an easy short driving distance. Funchal is about 30 mins away via the motorways, and the villa is about 50 mins drive from the airport. We had a perfect holiday and would love to come back soon. We booked the villa through Our Madeira and cannot fault the organisation and communication. Thank you so much for everyone who made our holiday so special.

Geräumige Unterkunft mit Blick aus Meer
Das Ferienhaus bietet alles, was man zum Ausspannen benötigt. Saubere Zimmer, gut ausgestattete Küche und große Terrasse mit schönem Blick aufs Meer. David, unser Kontakt vor Ort war sehr hilfsbereit und bietet in seinem nahegelegenen Cafe wunderbar frisches "homemade" Brot an.

"Thank you very much for your you lovely comments. Vielen Dank für Ihre schönen Kommentare.
Schönes, großzügiges Ferienhaus in ruhiger Lage mit toller Aussicht
Das Haus liegt in einer ruhigen Seitenstraße von Calheta und besitzt einen tollen Meerblick. Im Haus ist alles vorhanden, was man braucht, es ist sauber und falls Probleme auftreten ist der zuvorkommende Housekeeper hilfsbereit zur Stelle. Neben der herzlichen Begrüßung gab es ein Begrüßungsgeschenk in Form von heimischen Wein und Kuchen. Ein paar Meter vom Haus entfernt gibt es einen kleinen Shop/Cafe in dem man wirklich fast alles bekommt. Alles in allem war es ein toller Aufenthalt, auch wenn das Wetter mal nicht so toll war.

Thank you very much for your review and comments. Much appreciated.
OurMadeira to the rescue!
Our Madeira review (5 stars unless I can give you more!) This was the first time we have used Our Madeira and found the customer service to be exceptional. They answered all questions we had about accommodation promptly and also sourced us a great deal on car hire with fully comp insurance. When we found ourselves stranded on the island for a second week following flight cancellations, Linda could not have been more helpful, staying in the office out of hours to source accommodation for us, organising letters for our insurance company and also finding out about a second car hire. This went above and beyond our expectations and we will not hesitate to book again and recommend Our Madeira to anyone wanting to holiday in Madeira. We ended up staying here after being stranded on the island following a flight cancellation and from the start David, who looks after the villa, could not have been more helpful. He picked us up and returned us to the airport at a reduced rate. His family run a small shop and bar a very short walk from the property and so he was always on hand for little things such as acting as a translator when ordering taxis and keeping the shop open when we arrived to let us get essentials. This made our first night at the villa a lot more enjoyable! The house itself was very clean and spacious with a large balcony and stunning views of the ocean. It got sunshine all day long and well into the evening. It was traditional in style inside and out with comfortable furniture. The villa has good parking if you have a hire car. It also had great wifi.
