Overview

About the property

Three Bedroom Villa, Sleeps 8

Perfectly located amidst banana trees, close to the sunny resort of Calheta, with superb panoramic views of the sea, The Designhouse is a fabulous contemporary villa beautifully designed by a British architect as the perfect holiday home. Thought has been put into every detail, making this the perfect option for a great family holiday, or for a get away break for one or more couples.

To benefit from the views and tranquillity, The Designhouse has an upside down layout. From the driveway, the main entrance opens to a hall with stairs leading down to the bedroom floor and then to the living area and sun terrace with heated infinity pool.

The Cubist architecture of the villa is complemented by a Le Corbusier chaise longue and glass table and chairs, Wassily chairs, EGE carpets and Paul Henningsen lamps in the living area. Spacious and fully open-plan, the uninterrupted panoramic floor to ceiling sliding picture windows display the wonderful views over the banana treetops to the sea.

The contemporary feel continues into the red themed fully equipped kitchen with central island, off of which is the laundry.

Both lead to the wonderful southern exposure sun terrace, which runs the whole length of the villa and features a beautiful heated 10m long infinity pool with waterfall. To take full advantage of outdoor living, a large comfortable sofa and outdoor dining table sits under a covered area for provides greater comfort in hot sunny days and balmy evenings.

The Master bedroom with double bed, en-suite shower room is on the first floor, features panoramic sea-views when lying on the bed, and leads to both a private balcony and the shared balcony. The second bedroom also features a double bed from which you can contemplate the ocean, and leads to the shared balcony. The third bedroom has two single beds and also leads to the shared balcony. A study with desk, and its own private balcony, for those that wish to ally business with pleasure, can be used to place up two extra beds.

The Designhouse offers the best of all worlds; although it is located in a tranquil position on a street with no exit, it is also only 3 Km from the village resort of Calheta with all its facilities, and only 1 Km away from the expressway that takes you all over the island. Funchal is only 30 minutes away and the airport a further 10 minutes drive.

Superbe location

  • 5 of 5

Location conforme aux annonces : propre, spacieuse, bien située.

Proche des sentiers de randonnée, des bateaux pour se balader avec les dauphins et d'Helmut et ses parapentes.

Nous avons passé 10 jours à 6 sans soucis.

Un merci à l'équipe de Our Madeira pour sa réactivité et ses réponses pertinentes à toutes nos questions

A beautiful house with a magnificent view.

  • 5 of 5

A very beautiful, well kept spacious house with a magnificent view the Atlantic ocean amidst a Palmtree estate. You will find a lot of space for six people, a nice and perfectly equipped kitchen and a very clean place. On demand, the pool can be conveniently warmed up. A perfect place for a leisurely time.

A wonderful house with a stunning view!

  • 5 of 5

We have just spent a wonderful week at this house and are already hoping to return again one day.

Madeira is a beautiful island and this house near Calheta has one of the most stunning views I have ever encountered. The house itself is beautifully set out with everything we could have asked for....a real home from home and incredibly spacious. Our Madeira and Vanda in particular were very helpful. I fully recommend this property!

You won't be dissapointed

  • 5 of 5

An absolute gem of a house in a stunning location and Island!

This was our first visit to Madeira and we absolutely loved it and will make it our regular place to holiday. So much better and nearer than the Caribbean!

The design house was perfect for our stay and the images are a good representation of what you get. It is new, modern, well equipped and set in lovely grounds with stunning sea views and no near neighbours.

A car is a must in our opinion as it is not easy to walk to local bars/restaurants although a taxi would suffice.

The management company were a delight to deal with and the car booking company they suggested worked out perfectly.

Thumbs up from us!

What a great stay!

  • 5 of 5

Our overal impression is GREAT and more than word can say. Close to the airport and all facilities, the house is really confortable, very clean and well equipped. Due to its location, you are pretty close to all main sites to visit in Madeira. The pool will be really appreciated by everybody (2 adults & 3 children) specially after a long walk in the Levadas.

Don't hesitate to rent this house for your holidays!
