A gem of a property, ideal for exploring Madeira!

  • 4 of 5

I stayed at this property over the New Year, 2016/17. The cottage is very private, but is also very well located. The nearest supermarket is within walking distance, albeit that the walk back from it is all uphill! The bus service to Funchal, the main city of the island, runs along the coast road from Arco da Calheta to Calheta village, which is a few minutes walk from the cottage.

There are several restaurants located nearby, on the way to/from the supermarket. You would probably want to drive to these, although they are walkable.

The property offers excellent views up the coast in the general direction of Funchal, and in good weather there is the temptation just to lie in the hammock reading a book and soaking up the sun.

The cottage is an ideal place from which to explore the island, being relatively centrally located. It is also close to Funchal. You can travel right into the city by car, or park up in the fishing village of Camara de Lobos and take the bus into the city centre (or walk there and back, as I did one time is a 12 mile round trip on foot).

On the whole, i would highly recommend this place. Your Madeira holiday starts here.

Prachtig huis met een schitterend uitzicht!

  • 5 of 5

Wij hebben een heerlijke vakantie gehad op het prachtige eiland Madeira!

Het huis was schitterend gelegen met een geweldig uitzicht! Alles benodigdheden waren in het vakantiehuis aanwezig.

Een minpunt was de slechte staat van de waterkranen in de badkamer en douche met bijna altijd koud water.

Dit huis is zeker aan te raden voor een heerlijke vakantie!

Excellent location. Overall very good.

  • 4 of 5

Lovely views, good weather, really nice welcome. Parking on road and tricky. Noisy and sensitive pumped water system especially at night. Some of the taps needed washers replacing. Could do with a music and DVD system.

But really en joyed our stay.
