Premium contemporary villa set in beautiful sunny countryside with sea-views | Bella Vita

Calheta, Portugal



With a privileged tranquil location close to Prazeres, overlooking the rolling countryside and the sea, this beautiful air-conditioned new villa is finished to the highest standards in a contemporary décor and offers a fantastic inside/outside open plan living area and terrace with pool deck overlooking the surrounding countryside and sea.

Refurbished and extended from an old stone cottage, it features such luxuries as en-suite shower-rooms, a high-tech kitchen with built-in wine chiller, smart TV with a Netflix account for guest's use and a separate games/leisure room, allowing guests to experience the great lifestyle that its name implies.

The open-plan living area with seating area, dining area and open-plan kitchen features large sliding glass doors, turning it into an inside/outside space that extends to the front terrace and al-fresco eating area that winds around to the side and the built-in barbecue. Terraced lawns lead down to the to the large pool and surrounding deck with sunbeds and sun-umbrellas.

Family time can be also enjoyed in the leisure/games room with table football, Playstation 4 and table and chairs for table games.

The three bedrooms occupy the part of the house that was the old cottage; two are on the first floor and feature en-suite shower rooms, and the other is on the ground floor and has an adjoining family bathroom.

The owners have taken great care to make the villa environmentally friendly, and it has received an A+ Energy Efficiency Certificate. Building and glazing insulation means it is fresh in the summer and warm in the winter, and the hot water system uses solar and photovoltaic panels to heat the water and produce electricity. 

There is secure parking for 3 cars at the rear, up a flight of steps. 

Located away from the busy resorts, yet with easy access to nearby villages and the town of Calheta, it allows guests to experience the real Madeira. Close by, within walking distance is Mr. Gomes minimarket and snack- bar. Other restaurants and local bars can be found a little further away, and Prazeres, 4 Km and a 5-minute drive away has a greater selection.

The resort of Calheta with its man-made beach, branded supermarket and more cafés and restaurants, is 10 Km away, easily accessed via the expressway in 10 minutes driving time.

Funchal is an easy 50 minute drive via expressway and motorway, and the airport a further 10 minute drive.

    We had an amazing stay at Belle Vista, the villa is spacious, clean, private and set in a remote location in the mountains which is exactly what we wanted. The air felt so clean. You will need a car or take a taxi to reach any shops or restaurants, although there is a small bar in walking distance, but in terms of peace, quiet, views and escapism, this location has it all. The Villa is appointed to a high standard and is well maintained. Feels more like a hotel in the bedrooms and bathrooms than a private home. The outdoor space and pool was perfect and the views are incredible. You are not overlooked. The only thing I would say; just to be very honest about the advertising of this villa. The photographs you see on Airbnb are taken on a flattering wide angle lens! Maybe I should've clocked that! But when we arrived, the pool was definitely smaller (approx 10m) than expected, along with the garden space! Obviously this applies to the villa too, but that is not to say the villa isn't spacious, it is, but if you are looking to swim lengths then this pool isn't for you! You will also have to leave 300Euros in cash for a deposit when you check in, so make sure you have that cash before you arrive. We've never had to do this before on Airbnb, so I think it is useful for you to know in advanced. We were a family of 4 each with our own large comfortable AC room, but the villa definitely sleeps 6 comfortably. We cooked nearly every night and the kitchen is equipped to a good standard and clean. Nice extras such a welcome hamper, big towels for bath and pool and Nespresso coffee machine, just make sure you take a stash of pods, we struggled to find these in supermarkets! We would love to go back! Thank you for hosting us, we had the most relaxing family holiday. Madeira itself is beautiful and friendly.

    Amazing villa and pool very modern and clean everything you could want from a villa, not far from a local beach if you have small children, a couple of local supermarkets, view was wonderful to wake up to every morning,very peaceful and relaxing looking at the hills and sea in the distance, would recommend it to anyone as it's a fantastic villa.

    Beautiful modern villa in an amazing setting with a stunning view! We loved our stay at the villa, we had everything we needed, the kitchen was very well equipped, the furniture is high quality and modern. It was even warm enough to go swimming in the pool in December; it was heated to 26 degree. We definitely want to come back.

    Thank you for your comments, see you soon

    We really enjoyed our stay at the Bella Vita Villa. Everything was extremely clean and extraordinary well equipped. The villa itself was really spacious and luxurious with a breathtaking view. There's no reason you shouldn't book this villa for your stay in Madeira :) Bonus: There's a very well trained cat at the villa which we named Skrt. We miss him already! Kind regards, Nicolas

    Thank you very much indeed for your lovely comments. Very important as this is a new rental :)

    Ich mochte es fast nicht verraten: Aber das Haus ist einsame Spitze! Design sehr ansprechend, die Ausstattung komplett, vielfältig, sehr hochwertig, sehr bequem, gemütlich, absolut Stand der Technik und beyond. Im Juli 2020 fast alles noch neu, Pool tool, Aussicht sowieso, Weinkühlschrank, Playsstation, tolle "analoge" Spiele in neu, nicht abgegriffelt, liebe Katze sehr zutraulich, Klimanalage funktioniert einfach und zuverlässig, viel Liebe zum Detail. Wir haben die Zeit sehr genossen und sind dafür sehr dankbar. Noch nie war eine Ferienunterkunft schoener als unser Zuhause, dieses mal war das der Fall!

    We are delighted that you enjoyed everything about Bela Vita. Your comments are very important for us as this is a brand new rental property for this year, and of course like all rentals, it has been badly affected by the Covid-19 situation. Thank you very much indeed for your feedback.
