Overview

About the property

In the sunniest area of Madeira offering tranquility and outstanding views

SISTER VILLA TO VILLA DO MAR I AND VILLA DO MAR II

With an infinity style pool that reaches into the living area, and located in the sunniest area of Madeira, this delightful villa offers tranquility, outstanding views and close access to the sea.

Located on a fajã (a piece of land at the foot of a cliff) in the sunny Calheta area, close to its sister villas (Villa do Mar I and Villa do Mar II) and slightly elevated, Vila do Mar III has been beautifully converted from a farmers barn into a delightful villa with outstanding views and a heated pool that reaches into the living area.

The living area is full of light and has full length sliding windowpanes that provide direct access to the pool and those gorgeous sea-views. It leads to the large fully equipped kitchen with a large open barbecue.

All bedrooms are on the first floor and have en-suite shower rooms.

Vila do Mar III is a sister villa to the popular Villa do Mar I and Villa do Mar II which are close by.

NOTES ON ACCOMMODATION

There is a free Wi-Fi connection in the Villa and a telephone that can be used free for local calls to landlines

FURTHER DETAILS

The villa is secluded and very private and off the beaten track.

The villa has a traditional lookout point at the edge of the pool terrace. Perfect to appreciate those views during afternoon cocktail hour!

Situated in Fajã do Mar, 40 metres above the sea-level, where temperatures never drop below 19ºC, this lovely villa is the ultimate holiday retreat.

There is a deserted pebble beach approximately 30 metres below the street level, reached via a rough track. Although public, the difficult access makes it virtually private.

A lovely little beach hut is located right on the rocky beach 30 metres below, and shared by, the three Villas do Mar.

A front terrace with sunbeds, outdoor shower and built-in barbecue and large table (seating for 16), is complemented with a kitchen (fridger, 4-ring hob) and toilet.

Access is via a pathway with steps that leads from the level of the Villas do Mar down to the beach.

This property is registered and has an Alojamento Local lodging license nº23763/AL

Excellent villa with stunning pool and views

  • 5 of 5

The villa was really gorgeous. The only thing that marred our stay was the weather - it rained every day but one! However, we still managed to make good use of the pool and enjoyed exploring western Madeira. The complimentary fish supper at the owner's restaurant was also a lovely and unexpected surprise, as were the fresh mangoes and other fruit left for us!

Owner's Response: We are sorry abut the weather. The one thing we cannot guarantee. October can be a month of sun or rain and you were very unlucky. Delighted that everything else was to your liking and hope you will return one day.

A taste of paradise

  • 5 of 5

We stayed at this villa June/July for two weeks, the villa exceeded our expectations. It was a little taste of paradise, the pool was amazing and the view breathtaking. Any little hitches or teething problems were quickly dealt with in such a professional and friendly manner. I cannot recommend this villa enough and in fact the whole Island of Madeira is a must for all travellers. I would just also like to say a huge thank you for making my birthday so memorable with a beautiful meal at the villa do carne, thanks to everyone involved. I would certainly like to return to this villa in the future and will also encourage all my friends and family to book also. First class!!!

Superb Villa

  • 5 of 5

We have just returned from a 2 week stay in this beautiful villa. The pictures do not lie it is absolutely stunning, very clean with excellent amenities, the pool was amazing as were the surroundings. I would like to thank Sr Acacio for making our stay so special and for all the help he gave us enabling us to really enjoy our stay, also for the lovely night in Vila da Carne. Big Thank you also to Morrissio our taxi driver/ tour guide. Although the access road is pretty scary work is due to start very soon on amending this problem. I would recommend this Villa and would love to return to it. Madeira and its people are very special.

Traumurlaub in schönem Haus an herrlicher Lage

  • 5 of 5

- Sehr freundlicher Empfang

- Gepflegtes, schönes Haus

- Herrliche, ruhige Lage inmitten von Bananenbäumen

- Einzig die steile und schmale Zufahrt ohne Ausweichstellen war gewöhnungsbedürftig

- Wir würden jederzeit wieder kommen

Car: necessary

Perched on a tranquil fajã (a piece of land at the foot of a cliff) in the sunny Calheta area.

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 are a handful of boutique shops and a good supermarket.

Calheta is famous for producing the best white rum ‘Aguardente’, 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.

Madeira is a paradise for those who enjoy walking and hiking, and Arco da Calheta is ideally situated, having easy access to the road network and most places on the island.

Within 15 minutes are the beaches at Ponta do Sol and Ribeira Brava, the esplanades at the surfing paradises of Jardim do Mar and Paul do Mar, the laurisilva forest of Madeira (a UNESCO world heritage site - http://whc.unesco.org/en/list/934) and the many walks in Paul da Serra (1500 meters).

An easy 30-minute drive brings you to the capital, Funchal.
