About the property

Villa in Loreto, Arco da Calheta, Madeira - Peaceful and Romantic vs. Family Friendly - Guest Choice!

This luxurious villa located on the edge of Loreto, a traditional Madeiran village above Arco da Calheta. It is equally as perfect for a couple wanting a romantic sojourn as it is for a family wanting quality time relaxing and enjoying each other.

The three bedrooms, huge sitting room, dining room and facilities are equipped for casual or smart entertainment - family time or entertaining business associates. The location is outstanding, not only in terms of views but for gaining access to the roads leading to the capital, Funchal, or roads West to explore the Levadas and the natural beauty of the island.

The sundecks around the pool and house are very private and afford views across the bananas and vines to the 180 degree ocean view.

Guestbook comments from the owner

5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 20, 2014 for a stay in November 2014







'My experience was exceptional. The house was beautiful, clean, and there was wifi available as well as kitchen utensils to cook full meals. The pool was refreshing&relaxing, and a great compliment to the view. Everything was wonderful and created a perfect get a way weekend.' - Sarah R November 2014



'You never need to leave this villa! It has very large comfortable light rooms with a beautiful view of the sea. Outside their is a large patio with a beautiful pool on the lower deck. If you can tear yourself away from the villa the scenery on this island is breath taking.



We certainly would recommend a stay in Villa Loreto for its peace, tranquility, views and comfort.' Sue H - July 2014





'Fantastic. We stayed here in August 2014 and found the house to be simply perfect. The house is very well equipped and has everything that you could ever need during your stay. The location of the house is also wonderful as it is far away from the hustle and bustle of Funchal but close enough for you to explore all the local attractions. The house is also very private and even though it is a terraced house the other houses are currently empty so there is no one overlooking you. I would definitely recommend this house.

New property well furnished excellent facilities and location. Very short walk to the local village.

  • 5 of 5

We had a 4 hour delay with our flight but nothing was too much trouble for Peter who manages the property, he had stocked the fridge with basics and even left a pizza for us, we cannot thank him enough.

The house is new and all the fittings are new too and good quality, the bed was comfy as was the sofas and dining suite.

The house is, like most houses in Madeira perched on the side of the cliff, with stunning views to wake to from the bedrooms and from the picture windows in the living room and kitchen. We had come for a walking holiday and this is the perfect location, with a very short walk up to the local village with bars and bank and a modern deli style mini supermarket and on up to the tree line all on footpaths or roads with perhaps one car every 10 minutes. It took us an hour through banana plantations down to the seaside town of Calheta, with it's sandy beach and safe swimming. The town has a very well stocked supermarket, hotels, restaurants bars and a working rum factory open to the public and the well hidden national Casa das Mudas Art Gallery.

The road system on Madeira is modern and Calheta is an ideal place to tour the whole North of the Island, walking the coastal routes and levadas.

All in all an excellent holiday and living in this house was effortless and comfy.

It had it all and was in located the best part of Madeira.

The pool and views were amazing.

Brilliant Holiday

  • 5 of 5

Stayed in this spacious villa for two weeks. Wonderfully quiet location with an unbeleivable view down the hillside and over the ocean.It was a pleasure waking up every morning, pulling the curtains and gazing out to sea.

The directions to the villa from the airport were good as was the road..its only about a 45 minute drive.We were met just outside the villa by the owners representative who provided a comprehensive tour of the facilities and who left us in no doubt if anything went wrong (it didn't), he was only a phone call away..

Accommodation was well planned and well equipped for all needs (our only "disappointment" was that the bananas growing in the garden were not yet ready for eating.)

The local shops are all within reasonable walking distance and the Pizza /Italian restaurant in the village is highly recommended...we ate there on several occasions. Also recommend a short drive to Praxeres which is a beautiful village with some nice restaurants (we enjoyed Chicos).

One tip...do not make our mistake and hire an under-powered car. When they say mountains in Madeira, they mean MOUNTAINS. The views all over the island are stupendous, but reaching some of them can be a little heartstopping!!.

All in all, a brilliant holiday, great weather, excellent location and facilities and best of all a great villa,

Extremely spacious luxury villa in fab location

  • 5 of 5

Stayed in this fabulous villa late April for a week and can't recommend it enough. We had a wonderful, relaxing week - just what was needed :)

The weather was perfect (low 20's) and the villa gorgeous, amazingly spacious, immaculately clean, equipped with everything you could possibly need - a real home from home! The ocean views are amazing and the patio areas and pool are nice and private. The villa is within easy walking distance of local shops and an excellent pizza restaurant. We found the locals nice and friendly - can't wait to return!!

Luxury villa perfect for families

  • 5 of 5

I stayed in the villa for two weeks in August with my husband, mother my children 7, 9 and 18 months. The villa had everything I needed, plenty of room, high chair, cot, fully equipped kitchen, spacious outdoor area and fantastic pool with the most amazing uninterrupted views. My kids would have been more than happy to not leave the villa, however, it is situated with in walking distance of local shops, a bar and must try pizza restaurant. 5 minutes down the bottom of the hill is one of the only man made beaches in Madeira. For 6 euros a day the girls were on the inflatables in the sea for up to 5 hours!! Childcare itself, a beautiful villa, friendly locals. We would come agin in a flash.

A little bit of paradise!

  • 5 of 5

I was lucky enough to stay in this villa with my family.it was a truly wonderful experience, as there is so little need to leave it. The villa has enough outside space to stretch out. I spent most of my time during the day in the pool area, where there is ample space for at least 5 loungers and the pool is a lovely size and so refreshing. The upstairs deck has an enormous space for everyone too, in that adults can sit happily at the six seater ding table whilst the children could do cartwheels, gymnastics and generally run around. Madeira is very mountainous, so car hire is a necessity. Arco Calhetta is just down the road by car, where there is a supermarket and a man made beach with an Aqua zone play area which will amuse children for hours. Thank you so much to Hugh for my little stay in paradise.x
