Villa overview - owner's description
Our Villa is located in the rural southwest of Madeira, near Arco da Calheta, 40 minutes from Funchal airport. It is only a 5 minute drive away from the golden sandy beach in Calheta.
- Our Villa has its own private, south facing swimming pool (9m x 4m) and beautiful sea views, with tiled patio bathing area, sun beds, umbrellas and outside shower. Pool towels are also provided. NB: Swimming Pool access is via steps down to the lower level and the pool will not be shared.
All of the bedrooms are large and spacious and have large king-sized double beds with special matresses of high resilience foam to ensure an excellent nights sleep. We rent our villa as a 3/4 bedroom villa or a 6 bedroom villa depending on the number of guests staying at the villa.
The living room has a private balcony with amazing sea views, perfect for those evening drinks when all the village lights come in the valley on below. The large family kitchen has a big solid wood kitchen table and chairs, microwave, cooker and fridge/freezer and a very well stocked selection of pans & cooking utensils.
Our Villa now has a Games Room available for all bookings. It includes tablefootball, full sized Pool table and darts board. *
The villa has free wifi internet and is within easy access to good levada walks.
Baby & Child facilities.
We have a Chicco cot (with bed linen) and Chicco high chair available on request for babies and provide colourful plastic plates, dishes and cutlery for young children. We also have a non-slip mat for inside the bath for babies/toddlers to sit on whilst bathing.
The villa will be rented as either a 3/4 bedroom villa or a 6 bedroom villa, therefore the swimming pool will not be shared by 2 different parties/groups.
The property is situated in 1600m2 of lush banana groves and has been built in the tradional terraced style on the mountainside in the peaceful and tranquil hamlet of Ledo. The main living accomodation is at street level and thus enjoys magnificent panoramic views of both mountains and sea.
The local café is a 2 minute walk away and the village of Arco da Calheta is just a short 10min walk. Here you will find a post office, a fruit & vegetable shop - selling local produce - many cafés and bars, a church, a cash machine and a childrens play area.

it is a really lovely villa in a beautiful location among all those banana trees.
I only gave 3* for cleanliness because my wife washed all the floors so that we could walk around barefoot, and they looked a whole lot better. there are a few cosmetic blemishes. but you get with any villa.
as for communication or lack of maybe a quick visit a couple of days into the first week just to see that we knew where everything was and to ask if there are any questions.
But in conclusion it was a lovely place for two heavenly weeks.
When we arrived we were given a very rushed tour around the villa and asked to say if everything was ok to let them know now as it was a long way back to see anything. On first sight all looked fine. But once we had time to settle in we found the villa to be in need of a good clean, As we were a group of 12 adults from 2 families and booked in as such we would have expected to have 12 glasses 12 cups etc but this is not the case and most of the cups provided had no handles. When we went down to the pool
we found that there was only 7 sunbeds set out around the pool, we did find some more hidden away in the games room, which after a good wash down we were able to use. One of the shower rooms had glass in the shower tray - which indicates that this room was not cleaned before our arrival, the shower room on the second floor is dangerous as the water from the shower head aims directly at the overhead light which just a bulb hanging from the ceiling. The socket behind the double bed on the second floor is dangerous and hanging out of the wall. I did try to call Quinn but got no answer and as he said he would be back on the Friday with clean towels decided it could wait, however as Quinn came on the Thursday when all but 2 were out I never got the opportunity to speak to him. As the holiday had taken a lot of organizing we decided to make the most of it and had a really great time. The island is beautiful and Nelson - the taxi driver- is a must if you want to take a tour of the different areas. -
On arrival we were warmly greeted by the owner.
Initially the property looked amazing, however on inspection the property was dirty so we spent our first afternoon in Madeira cleaning. The games room was particularly bad and when you opened the drawers it had collections of dead bugs and cobwebs.
There was no cleaner provided throughout our 3 week stay, and when I asked about changing the bedlinen, I was advised that I had a washing machine!
We have stayed in many villas over the years and all have provided cleaning services, changes of bed linen and the pool was regularly cleaned, so I was quite disappointed about this response.
It is such a shame as if the property was clean and better mainintained it would be a pleasure to stay in as the views and location are spectacular, although the steps to the pool are very challenging!!
The locals are extremely friendly and Nelson the Taxi driver and his crew were brilliant!
We have had a wonderfull time staying in Madeira thanks to this appartment. The weather in December is not the best but weve absolutely enjoyed it.
Good place to start exploring the island, and a magnificent view over the banana trees and the ocean..
We had a lovely week . It is far enough away from the hustle of big towns but the communication is so good its easy to visit anywhere on the island.
Stunning views and all the facilities we needed,
Its not ultra modern but it did not detract from the holiday or let us down in any way.
I will return as soon as I can

Private Owner From Calheta, Portugal Member since Jul 2009
Myself and my Madeiran Husband are based in Madeira and really enjoy looking after our Villa with help from close family.
We decided to start renting out our villa, for holidays, because we wanted to show what it was like to holiday in the real Madeira - not the busy city. Arco da Calheta has the really typical, rural, Madeiran feel, just right to experience what it would be like to live in Madeira and be a local!
We hope we can make your stay with us every bit as enjoyable as it is to live in Madeira.
