About the property

3 Bedroom Rustic Villa Perched 30 Metres Above The Beach

SISTER PROPERTY TO VILLA DO MAR II AND VILLA DO MAR III

If you want to get away from it all, relax and simply enjoy the beauty of Madeira's dramatic coastline, then Villa do Mar is the perfect choice. Situated in Fajã Do Mar, where temperatures never drop below 19ºC, 30 metres above the deserted pebble beach, this idyllic, rustic 3 bedroom villa is the ultimate holiday retreat.

A unique 3 bedroom rustic villa with private pool situated right on the cliff edge above the pebble beach. Ideal for holidays with friends and family. Air-conditioning and internet. Open plan lounge/dining area with a mezzanine above with 2 single beds - ideal for children. Two bedrooms have direct access to the garden and the third has a balcony with sea view.

Very large garden and pool area, private parking.

The villa is secluded and off the beaten track. The garden is large with a variety of indigenous plants and palm trees and leads down to the sunny private swimming pool area. 30 meters below is the pebble beach called "Praia do Calhau".

The lounge/dining area is open plan and opens directly onto the terrace and garden that leads down to the swimming pool. Above the lounge there is a mezzanine with 2 single beds - ideal for children.

The master bedroom, with en-suite bathroom, and one of the twin rooms, has direct access to the garden, and the third bedroom has a balcony with sea view. The second and thrid bedrooms can be made up as a double bed or two single beds.

The outside space is fantastic and the views will take your breath away. The doors from the lounge open on to the wooden terrace which surrounds the front area of the villa, with outdoor dining facilities and a built-in barbecue. The garden is large with a variety of indigenous plants and palm trees and leads down to the sunny swimming pool area, with sun loungers and parasols. The perfect spot to relax with a glass of wine and watch the beautiful sun sets.

Villa Do Mar I has been the home to many a happy holidaymaker for the past couple of years. It was originally built and used as the owner's summer retreat.

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 b

Just a perfect retreat

  • 5 of 5

We love hidden places nestled amidst nature and this house is a dream. The garden is even prettier than on the photos and you can choose between a bunch of different corners to stretch out, eat or enjoy the surroundings. Don't miss the little barbecue house right on the beach!

We invited friends and had a wonderful time; we also tried the restaurant of the owner in Camara do Lobos and it was very good, nice view towards ocean and town.

What you need to know:

- the restaurant indicated as meeting point is right on the road facing the ocean, but its name is only written on shaky flags and if it's windy you don't see that. Take the number of the contact person with you, so you can call him if you have problems to find the meeting spot.

- the road to the house itself is very steep and narrow, but you get used to do it with a car, even at night.

- you have to be careful to not lock yourself out, as the front door can't be opened from outside with a handle. So once the keys are in the house, everybody is out and the wind shuts the door you have a problem (it didn't happen to us, but it's easy to happen).

- pets are allowed and we appreciated that very much; please respect house and garden if you travel with a dog, so they don't change this rule...

- you need to bring or buy tablets for the dishwasher, wastepaper bags and the basics for the kitchen (salt/pepper/sugar, oil/vinegar); there will be some bread, butter and jam upon arrival but the rest you need to buy and you can't reach a shop walking (a car is needed), so better buy groceries before you get there.

- be careful roasting things in the kitchen, the fire alarm goes off very easily. There is a frame on the wall next to the alarm system that tells you how to switch it off, but once you are stressed you might not see that... the alarm is VERY noisy.

A wonderful home

  • 5 of 5

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...

Marvelous property and very nice, charming house at the sunniest spot on the island! Owner was very helpful and responsive when a problem occurred. The house and garden are even more beautiful than you would expect from the pictures.

Location

Car: necessary

A few minutes by car will take you to the resort town of Calheta, which, with its man-made golden beaches, is popular with tourists and locals alike. There is a beautiful marina and a good choice of bars and restaurants. There is a handful of boutique shops and a good supermarket.
