Modern cliff-top villa, panoramic sea-views, A/C, heated pool | Cliffscape

Esttreito da Calheta, Portugal


With outstanding panoramic sea-views and offering privacy and seclusion, surrounded by tranquil countryside, Cliffscape is a superb quality air-conditioned villa with heated pool that fully lives up to its name, with the great advantage that it is located in the sunniest area of Madeira and only 300m from the nearest facilities.

Located at the end of its own driveway and perched on the cliff top, this contemporary villa is designed to embrace the superb views. A central living area comprising open-plan sitting area, dining area and kitchen, leading via the large patio doors to the solarium and pool, is flanked by bedroom wings to each side, ensuring those great sea-views are enjoyed everywhere. The spacious and bright air-conditioned sitting and dining areas have direct views over the solarium and pool and out to the sea, and are where you will find the flat-screen TV with cable connection, DVD player (with a small selection to watch) and a PlayStation 4 (with a couple of games). The modern kitchen in black and white is fully equipped with 4-ring induction hob, built-in oven and microwave, fridge/freezer, dishwasher, electric kettle, coffeemaker, toaster, sandwich maker and hand-held liquidizer.

In the east wing is a bedroom with single beds and en-suite shower room and a second bedroom with a double bed and a shower room across the hall. The more spacious master bedroom with a double bed and en-suite shower room is in the west wing. All bedrooms are air-conditioned, benefit from direct sea-views and have patio doors opening to the solarium.

The solarium runs along the whole front of the house and features an outdoor dining table, outdoor sitting area, the large rectangular infinity pool, (optionally heated), and six sun-beds. Below this is the lawn leading down to the cliff. There is a large built-in wood/coal barbecue with side worktop and sink to enjoy leisure days at the villa and a ping-pong table close by. The villa features a separate laundry with washing machine, iron and ironing board and secure parking for 2 cars is available. Cliffscape is a walled property that provides security and privacy, with a southern exposure ensuring those fantastic views and the sunniest weather in Madeira.

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.

    Gerne wieder

    Wir waren Mitte September für 12 Nächte Gäste in diesem wunderschönen Haus. Es liegt am Rande einer kleinen Siedlung, sehr ruhig, aber nicht zu abgeschieden. Das Haus ist geräumig, der Blick aufs Meer unglaublich schön. Wir würden wiederkommen. Auch der Kontakt zur Agentur war vorbildlich. Wir haben uns sehr gut aufgehoben gefühlt.

    Thank you very much for your feedback. We certainly do hope you will return one day. Thank you also your for your kind comments about the service you received from the Our Madeira agency. We do try our very best to assist our guests as much as possible.
    Absolutely fantastic stay
    We were a party of four and had a wonderful week in Maderia. The villa is perfect. Modern and spacious and with everything you need. The expansive terrace and pool area had views to die for and the sunsets were spectacular. The property manager was friendly and very helpful and nothing was too much trouble. Would not hesitate to recommend this villa and location. Thank you for a wonderful stay.

    A beautiful villa with stunning views

    This was our first time on Madeira and spent our holiday with 6 people in this villa. In summary, a stay in this villa is very pleasant, also because of the magnificent / unique view and essentially everything is available and very clean, as how completely Madeira. A small complaint (kettle defective) was done immediately.

    Madeira at its best!

    Cliff house was our favorite part on the whole island and island itself it's beautiful and has much to offer. It's located in the country side, surrendered by empty lots and little banana farm on the left. We could watch goats down the cliff, cow on the terrace above and of course birds flying above. Just fabulous!!! Binoculars and lunette very available. Rooms are spacious, bed and linens comfortable. There was a crib in master bedroom which sent shivers down my spine. We moved it to an empty room.. Especially my 10year old, took full advantage of the pool, which in April weather it's something, even with 24degree water temp in the pool. Kitchen had everything that we needed with welcoming foods, coffee and white wine. We ended up cooking our dinners (which we never do) because where else can you find that kind of water front dinning experience. And OMG :!there is a small,sweet, herb garden with rosemary, thyme, mint, parsley and cumin. Just loved it! The view is ever changing and you can't get enough of it, wether with your morning coffee or glass of wine at the evening. And the whole place is so QUIET... with occasional squawking of the sea birds. House was sparkling clean and host oh so welcoming. If you go to Madeira just to stay there, you will not be disappointed.

    This villa is a definite 5 star rating and new to the rental market with us being the first guests to arrive. The owner has spent a fortune building this property and it is evident throughout. The location is dramatic set on the cliff giving it it's appropriate name with views to die for and no near neighbours giving total peace & tranquillity. Thank you for the privilege of being the first guests and we promise to return soon!

    Amazing villa

    Lovely, very private villa with unbelievable views out into the Atlantic. Very well equipped and spacious inside, and very clean. Would recommend pool heating outside of the summer months, which takes the edge off the cooler pool temperature this time of year. Located just outside of Calheta, with sufficient shops nearby, although a car is needed. Good location to explore the west and north west parts of the island, as well as Calheta area. Would recommend booking via Our Madeira, who we found very organised, helpful and responsive.

    Perfekter geht´s nicht
    Ambiente, Qualität, Raumaufteilung, Service, alles war in exzellentem Zustand. Cliffscape muß man erlebt haben. Atemberaubend ist die Terrassenseite Richtung Meer. Total unberührt, allein und maximale Ruhe ist gegeben. Wenn es uns möglich ist, werden wir ganz sicher in dieses Haus wiederkommen und gar nicht erst nach einer Alternativen sehen. Ganz herzlichen Dank an die Eigentümer, die mit bestem Geschmack dieses Haus eingerichtet haben.

    Beauyiful clifftop villa

    Fabulous location and everything you need for a comfortable stay. We stayed in December/ New Year and it was quite windy. We didn't use the pool as the pool heater had teething troubles but Fernando refunded the heating charge without hesitation.

    Thank you very much for your 5 star review. This is a stunning new villa and we are delighted that you enjoyed your stay. You must return when the weather is warmer and enjoy the pool.

    Super schöne Unterkunft Schlüsselübergabe und Einweisung war sehr freundlich und hat reibungslos funktioniert. Wir hatten einen erholsamen Urlaub mit vielen Wanderungen durch die schöne Natur Madeiras. Die Abende genossen wir mit Rotwein, bei superschönen Ausblick und Sonnenuntergang im aufgeheizten Pool.

    Ein wunderschön gelegenes Ferienhaus mit weitem Blick über den Atlantik

    Wir hatten eine traumhafte Woche auf Madeira und dies nicht zuletzt wegen des sehr schönen Ferienhauses 'Cliffscape'. Der Empfang durch den Besitzer, der auf uns wartete, war ausgesprochen liebenswert. Auch die sonstige Betreuung über 'Our Madeira' war sehr gut. Das Haus ist sehr gut ausgestattet, sowohl in der Küche als auch bzgl. der Bestuhlung auf der Terrasse. Der Pool ist ein Traum, uneinsehbar, wunderbar. Wir werden wieder kommen ...

    Cliffscape "Entspannung pur"
    Im Cliffcape haben wir uns super wohl gefühlt. Wir waren mit 6 Personen da. Die Zimmer sind modern eingerichtet. Die Küche hat alles was man so braucht. Der Pool war ein Traum, hätte nur etwas wärmer sein können. :-) (Für uns Frostbeulen) Wenn etwas gefehlt hat, wurde es direkt gebracht. Linda war sehr hilfsbereit und war für uns bei Fragen immer erreichbar. Ich kann das Haus nur empfehlen, gerade wenn man sich erholen möchte. Der Ausblick ist einfach super schön

    Sensationelle Lage

    Das Haus liegt an sensationeller Lage ist modern und gross. Man fühlt sich vom ersten Moment an wie zu Hause. Annahme und Rückgabe Schlüssel hat perfekt geklappt. Einrichtung Haus auf hohem Standart. Betten sind modern aber für mich steinhart. Da ich Rückenprobleme habe erlaube ich mir kein weiteres Urteil dazu abzugeben. Küche sehr gut ausgerüstet. Jederzeit wieder.

    Stunning uninterrupted sea view

    We stayed at Cliffscape for a couple of weeks in November to get some much needed winter sun. We enjoy visiting Madeira and have been before - it has a great climate all year round. Cliffscape is a modern, fresh villa and has a spectacular sea view from a front line position. It's a 5min drive to Calheta which has a good supermarket, sandy beach and an excellent children's play park which our 2 year old enjoyed. I would recommend to families - it has all the amenities you need and a great pool.
