This is an excellent holiday villa on the relaxing, warm and friendly island of Madeira.
A well located good sized 3 bedroom villa with excellent views, 3 double bedrooms and an open plan living area bigger than the photographs suggest. The terrace around the pool is a superb place to relax and you are not overlooked which is nice.
There are a lot of steps up to the villa which you must be OK with and a car is essential to both get there and get around the island. The garage ensures your car stays cool, care is necessary with the steep ramp off the road which a typical challenge of many villa's on the island.
Located on the south side of the island the sea is calm and the ambiance generally warmer.
Full cooking facilities in the kitchen make for great meals.
Our 2nd visit to this villa and another great experience.
I look forward to the next visit
We've just returned from a wonderful week in Calheta. The entire experience from start to finish couldn't have been better. From communication with Joao before travel to the accommodation itself, it has been wonderful. The villa is in a beautiful location with wonderful views over the sea and the pool was a massive hit with our son. As other reviewers have said a car is essential even if you intend to spend most of your time by the pool. I would highly recommend staying at this property.
Gorgeous family villa
Lovely, clean villa. Suited our family with three teenagers. It had an underrated location description we felt; we loved the proximity to the fabulous beach at Calheta with it’s very inexpensive sun loungers/parasols. Easy to access the whole of the island but peaceful and a welcome respite from the hassle of Funchal. Steps up to the villa are steep as described, not a problem for us but could be tricky for those with poor knees. Sunsets are glorious from the villa, pool is bigger than the pictures suggest and lovely and deep. Joao and his sister in law were completely welcoming and very helpful when we had questions. There were some unexpected touches that made our trip easier including swim towels and cooking herbs/oils etc. We’d undoubtedly stay again for our next visit to Madeira.
thanks and until next visit
I cannot recommend Joao or villa highly enough!
Having recently had a not so good experience with a villa rental elsewhere, it was so refreshing to have a really good booking experience, followed by swift, informative and timely communication with Joao.
Having followed the pictorial route planner supplied by the owner, we found the villa to be above expectation, and were surprised and delighted to have a welcoming tour.
The facilities the villa provided were all you could need, and the one very small issue we encountered was dealt with swiftly and without any fuss.
The views from this location are stunning and we found ourselves every day just stood by the pool looking out over the sea view.
The pool is a really good size and a perfect way to spend the day, sun drenched from mid morning to early evening.
The three bedrooms are a really good size, with ample storage and hanging space and comfortable beds. With 3 toilets (one outside) you should never get caught short. The kitchen is huge and has everything you need.
There is a very good supermarket in the local town which is about a 10 minute car ride away.
A car is essential here, and good mobility as the villa is up quite a few steps from the gated driveway.
Overall we were delighted with our stay here and would not hesitate to book again!
Truth and reality just makes an incredible stay
A dream place, quiet and beautiful surroundings, stunning views.
This was the best holiday place we have been too. Joao, the host was so welcoming and helpful. The house is in the most beautiful location, conveniently located 10 min drive from Calheta which has a great supermarket and beautiful beach.
Everything in the house was comfortable, with all the things you needed to cook and great kitchen facilities. The pool was clean and warm, giving out on beautiful views over the ocean.We can only highly recommend Joao’s house and we hope we can come back soon.
