    Description

    The house is one of the older properties on Madeira. The room downstairs provides lounge, dining and kitchen areas. The walls are very thick stone they are over 150 years old, part of the original cottage. This keeps the house cool in the summer, and warm in the winter.

    The bedrooms are on the road level. No carrying suitcases up or down stairs.
    Off the bedrooms there is a generous balcony. You can sit at the table in the sun all day long. Or watch the sunset. The shutters will keep the heat out of the bedrooms in the summer

    Outside the house is the terrace and pool. The pool is about 3 metres wide and 6 metres long; the depth is about 1.5 metres. There are loungers for sunning yourself and we supply you with pool towels so you don't need to bring your own. You can lie on your sun bed and watch the paragliders as they float from one place to the next on the thermals with their colourful canopies. You can try it if you like they have double ones to take up beginners

    If you want to swim in the sea we are a short drive, or bracing walk from the sea. Artificial beaches have been created using sand from North Africa. the sea also benefits by being warmed by the gulf stream bringing warm currents from the African waters. Snorkelling is great, fish are abundant and colourful. A local firm offers whale watching trips form the Marina and also snorkelling with the dolphins. My grandsons ages 8 to 13 tried it and still talk about the experience.

    Funchal is a 30 minutes drive and offers all sorts of city experiences.

    Lovely Traditional Madeiran House
    Had a lovely week staying here. Communication with Carole was excellent and we met both her and husband Geoffrey who came over to stay in their other accommodation towards the back end of our stay. As we did not hire a car they took us for lunch in Funchal and also for a lovely meal at their favourite restaurant. Communication with the Property Managers Ezekiel & Dive was also good and Ezekiel was even good enough to pick us some shopping on the day we arrived as we had to isolate until the results of our Covid tests came through. Terese, their next door neighbour who cleans the house also cooked us a meal on the Sunday which was also much appreciated We would highly recommend both Madeira and Arco da Calheta which has a lovely marina.

    Realaxing holiday with great view
    We had a comfortable and relaxing stay the last two weeks in December! Two nice bedrooms on the upper floor with exits to the balcony. The hot water might run out in the shower during less sunny days. Downstairs is the old part of the house with thick stone walls. A bit dark but nice. The kitchen area is quite well equipped with dish washer but an oven would have been a plus. The outdoor pool area is great with pool, grill, garden furniture and some fruit trees (we could pick avocados). The pool temperature was however disappointing, the solar heating is not dimensioned for the amount of water, at least not in December, although some consecutive days of sunshine, the water temp was around 22 degrees. In the nearby area there are a few small super markets. A bigger one is at Calheta beach, 30 mins walk or 7-8 mins by car/taxi. There are some descent snack bars nearby but we can recommend restaurante Neya and Engenho Velho, 15-25 minutes walk.
