Overview

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.



Traveling group: Teenagers.

Would I recommend this vacation rental to my best friend? Yes' Chrissie - August 2014

Brilliant villa brilliant holiday

  • 5 of 5

We stayed in the villa in July 2017. Both the villa and Madeira surpassed our expectations and we had a superb family holiday.

From the moment we made contact the owners have been nothing short of fantastic in answering questions and providing information. A real pleasure to deal with.

The photo in the listing are a good representation of the property. The house itself over 2 levels was immaculately clean and so comfortable. Due to my habit of snoring after a drink or three I took the single bed room and the beds were very comfortable perfect for children or adults. My six year old daughter loved the double room and my wife had the master bedroom with balcony and on suite bathroom. My wife is allergic to feathers but this was not an issue when we asked the owners. We all slept very well. The bathrooms up stairs were very clean and spacious.

The downstairs is very nice with three doors you can open on to the verander. Comfy sofas, TV with all mod cons, Wi-fi and a lovely dining area. The kitchen is very well equipped and we had no issues cooking in it.

The verander affords fantastic views of the ocean (as do two bedrooms). Steps lead down to the pool area which has its own toilet and shower block. Finally there is another set of steps leading to the banana grove.

The best thing I liked about this villa is the privacy. We felt very safe but had no issues of disturbing anyone. With some careful positioning of phones connected to wi-fi on the verander we connected a Bluetooth speaker down by the pool. We could play in the pool for hours she streaming music at a reasonable volume with no danger of disturbing a soul.

Overall I would recommend this villa to anyone. As a family with a six year old we had no safety concerns what so ever and loved our stay. Very highly recommended and we would stay here again without hesitation.

Madeira

The island is amazing. This was our first visit, it won't be our last.

Car hire advice:

The horror stories about Goldcar car rental at Funchal airport are legendary if you do your research. What ever company I went with it would not be them. Please research them before even considering a booking with them.

We rented through Rentals.com with INSULARCAR. The best easiest and pleasant car hire I have ever done. Cannot recommend them enough.

Beautiful quiet location with our own banana trees in the garden!

  • 5 of 5

A really lovely smart villa with a sparkling clean pool plus everything else you could want and extremely helpful owners who provided lots of useful info before arrival. A quiet tucked away spot but within easy reach of both Funchal and the west and north of the island. We had an amazing holiday and would definitely visit again :-)

Perfect for couples, a group of friends or families

  • 4 of 5

A mature couple looking for a relaxing holiday in a luxurious but affordable environment. Both the island and the villa delivered. The directions to the villa where fantastic and we didn't get lost once although I think the gradient of the hills caught us a little by surprise. We were met by Teva who gave us a quick tour and pointed out everything we needed to know. There was a nice selection of supplies such as milk, wine and bread rolls, everything a weary traveller would need.

The villa was of an exceptional high standard lots of space but still homely. It offers flexible living and we were particularly impressed with the kitchen which was very well appointed with everything you would ever need for a small picnic to a roast dinner (not that we cooked one).

We ate at the local pizzeria which was fantastic value for money and enjoyed morning coffee at the village supermarket, excellent coffee and cake, outstanding value for mone. Wherever we visited on the island the people couldn't have been more friendly or helpful. Even chatting to the locals walking through the village was a real experience in friendliness. All speak impeccable English.

We would highly recommend a stay at this villa in Loreto and a trip to Madeira if you are looking for a quieter pace of life with some stunning scenery, beautiful walks and great people.

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.

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,
