About The Owner/Property Manager
Myself and my Madeiran Husband really enjoy looking after our Villa with help from close family. We decided to start renting out our villa, for holidays, because we wanted to show what it was like to holiday in the real Madeira - not the busy city. Arco da Calheta has the really typical, rural, Madeiran feel, just right to experience what it would be like to live in Madeira and be a local! We hope we can make your stay with us every bit as enjoyable as it is to live in Madeira.
The Owner/Property Manager purchased this Villa in 2007

Wonderful piece of paradise
The house is well set up all extras you could ever need a real home from home
Setting is stunning ! Waking to a sea view over banana groves is breathtaking.
The pictures on the page don't do the house justice it's huge ! Room after room is discovered. The games room was a huge positive ! And the pool is wonderful.
This side of the island is hotter than most and we only had a fleeting drizzle one day. You are a little out on a limb and definitely need a car to discover the best of the island but the roads are so easy to navigate and we'll signposted so don't worry.
The house is clean with all amenities needed it is a little tired in places but it has real charcater and if 2 families are travelling together it's perfect as you can holiday together but still have time apart. The beds are amazing so comfortable.
Spacious villa with fantastic sea views in a lovely part of the island
I stayed at the villa for a week with 10 members of my family. We had a wonderful week and were sad to leave! Emma & Quim were extremely helpful and responsive to messages ahead of our arrival (and during our stay). Miguel met me at the villa and arranged for a local taxi driver, Nelson, to take me to the supermarket before the rest of the group arrived.
Nelson is absolutely brilliant and took us on a great tour to Porto Moniz one day - stopping to show us several view points on the way there and back which we wouldn't have known about otherwise.
The villa is extremely spacious, very clean, comfortable and well equipped. The views from the balconies and pool area are spectacular. The pool isn't heated but we used it every day we were there (in October) - you just have to be a bit brave about getting into it! Having two kitchens and two living rooms plus the pool area and game room meant that there was plenty of space for us all without it ever feeling crowded.
The neighbours are lovely - we got talking to the people who live over the road and they recommended things to do locally - including the trip to Porto Moniz which was one of the highlights of our stay.
The villa is located in a small village called Arco da Calhetta - there are a few shops and snack bars about a 12 minute walk from the villa (the local supermarket there is very small but has the essentials and some fresh fruit and vegetables).
Calhetta is about 5 minutes drive away. It took us just over an hour to walk down there one day but it's very steep and there is no pavement so it would be better to drive if possible. We didn't even think about walking back up! The local supermarket in Calhetta is much bigger and had everything we needed. There are several restaurants in Calhetta - we had a fantastic meal on our last night there at the Savoy Calhetta Beach Hotel (Onda Azul restaurant). It's well worth a visit. There's also a restaurant at the other end of the hotel that has tables outside by the beach and serves nice ice cream.
We took a public bus from the village (the stop was 20 minutes walk from the villa) to Funchal one day. It cost 4 Euros each way and took 1.5 hours but it was well worth the longer journey for the scenery - the public bus takes the coastal route through all of the villages rather than through the tunnels.
I would love to return one day and I would be more than happy to stay at this villa again.
Perfect location for visiting the island. The owners are very helpful and kind. They went the extra mile to find a caterer for a party in the house. They answered every question, requirement very quickly. The house is absolutely amazing and extremely functional for a family reunion ! Amazing view from the swimming pool. If I resume fantastic !
We were all absolutely amazed by the property. It actually exceeded our expectations. All the rooms and there is plenty of them to accommodate 11 people, were spacious with spectacular views. There is also a large game room with a pool table, dart board a Foosball table for those who get bored or tired after challenging climb to Pico Ruivo. When you get all the way down to the bottom of the building, you will find a large terrace with a swimming pool with a clear water, overlooking the Atlantic ocean. If you like the smell of burning meat and aubergine, there is a BBQ grill and a near local shop, where you can buy your sausages.
Great place very spacious clean perfect
Amazing View & Gorgeous House
This List was perfect for my family of 9 Traveling to Madiera. We loved everything about the house from the space to the amazing views.
Emma & Quim were very quick to respond to any questions that arose, and fixed the small issues that arose very quickly. I would definitely recommend this list to anyone, and would recommend travelling to Madiera Portugal. Thanks for the Great Hosting and Rental of your Amazing house!
Our villa is located near some of the best and most beautiful Levada walks on the island - Rabaçal and 25 Fontes (waterfalls).
Down in the Marina you can go out Dolphin watching, big game fishing or just for a sail boat ride.
Up in the mountain in Prazares, about a 15min drive away, you can try out or just watch world renowned Paragliding.
