Location Description:

Madalena do Mar is a small village located on the southwest coast of the island with beautiful sea and cliff views. Its name came from the legendary Polish Prince of the 15th century, Henry Allemão. He lost a battle in 1444 and was given land by João Gonçalves Zarco and established a great-populated farm where he built a chapel and dedicated to the Saint Mary Madeleine. It is a characteristic fishing village with a beautiful promenade along the pebble beach. Its location and accompanying climate has helped it to establish the biggest banana plantations on the island. There are several restaurants for lazy lunches or evenings out. Calheta with its man-made golden beaches is popular with tourists and locals alike. There is a beautiful marina and a selection of bars and restaurants. 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. 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.

Perfect location, great for family holiday, amazing heated and illuminated pool, stunning view
We spent a very relaxing week with our 12 year old daughter in this amazing place. The villa has everything you need, the heated and illuminated pool was the best we ever had, the property is a beautiful tropical garden, the view absolutely amazing. We actually didn't really want to leave this paradise to buy some groceries or do some sightseeing. Our daily adventure was the steep and narrow path from the main street to the house. Nothing for the faint-hearted and only recommended for self confident drivers. We highly recommend a small and nimble car. Very friendly owner who passes by every other day to clean the pool himself and always left some freshly picked fruits from the garden at the doorstep. The Barbeque is weatherproof and the table beside it has a roof. And there is even a special device to prepare espetadas and serve them at the table. A small pathway leads from the villa to the beach with a lovely beach-house. To make a long story short: It couldn't have been any better!

Villa do Mar I
Wir verbrachten zu zweit zwei Wochen in der Villa Do Mar auf Madeira. Die Villa und der Garten sind wie auf den Bildern zu sehen. Der Platz war natürlich mit der geringen Belegung mehr als ausreichend. Die besondere Lage der Villa auf Madeira mit vorderseitig dem Meer und rückseitig der Felswand führt zu sehr angenehmen Temperaturen auch im Januar. Die Temperaturen fielen nachts gefühlt nie unter 18 - 20 Grad und waren sicher einige Grade höher als zur gleichen Zeit in Funchal oder Calheta. Besonders hervorzuheben ist die Unterstützung vor Ort durch die Ansprechpartner (Alberto als Besitzer und Rodrigues als dessen rechte Hand). Eine derartige hervorragende Unterstützung in allen Belangen habe ich bisher in noch keinem Urlaub erlebt. Die Anfahrt zur Villa ist schon besonders, sehr eng und sehr steil - selbst für Madeiraverhältnisse. Nach ein paar Fahrten hat man sich aber daran gewöhnt. Hier ein kleiner Tipp: vor dem Losfahren einmal kurz hupen, damit eventueller Gegenverkehr auch ein Signal geben kann. Man fährt erst los, wenn der Weg wieder frei ist (zweimaliges Hupen des Fahrers sobald man angekommen ist). Umdrehen oder rückwärts Fahren ist auf keinen Fall anzuraten. Auf Anfrage war es möglich unseren kleinen Hund mitzunehmen, aber Vorsicht, es ist Rattengift im Garten ausgelegt. Der Pool wird jeden Tag vom Besitzer früh am morgen akribisch gereinigt, hat uns nie gestört. Poolheizung hatten wir verwendet - dadurch schöne Badetemperatur, wenn auch 24 Grad sicher nur knapp am Mittag und bei Sonneneinstrahlung erreicht werden. Die Küche ist ausreichend aber nicht sehr gut mit Grundzutaten ausgestattet. Alle Gewürze oder Spülmaschinentabs etc. sind selbst zu besorgen - hier wäre etwas mehr schön. Einkaufen ist in Caletha in wenigen Minuten Fahrzeit möglich. Die Restaurants des Besitzers sind auf jeden Fall zu empfehlen, wir wurden vom Besitzer auch jedesmal sehr nett persönlich begrüßt. Der Transport zu den beiden Lokalen (einmal Fisch und einmal Fleisch) wird organisiert - bei Anmeldung am frühen Nachmittag, allerdings ist die Villa etwa 30 Minuten Fahrzeit von den Restaurants entfernt.

Thank you very much for your kind comments and recommendation.
A wonderful home
Everything at the villa was perfect: the house, the pool, the view, the service.... Our stay in Madeira was a great experience with the beautiful nature and the climate. But the weather... unfortunately we had much of rain and storm. That was bad luck. We are happy to be back next year...
