Gulf Stream waters lap the shores of Madeira resulting in fantastic summers and mild winters making the island an exquisite holiday destination all year round. Our spacious cottages enjoy a privileged location in Estreito da Calheta which is to be found on the sunny west coast of this idyllic island. The accommodation is within easy travelling distance (7 minutes by car) to Vila Calheta - a lovely area with an outstanding sandy beach, a big marina, a well stocked supermarket, great coffee bars and some good restaurants serving local specialities, to be sampled with cold white wine or a 'shandy'.

Each villa has its own private terrace and the panoramic views are spectacular! All the windows and glass doors are double glazed with comfort in mind. If you need to check in on the real world you can do so by scrolling through any of th...

This was our second visit to Madeira, and it will not be the last. We have rented many cottages over the years, in different parts of Europe. Lavender Cottage was no doubt the best so far. It is very well equipped, the host, Heather, has thought of everything. This summer was quite hot, but the cottage felt very cool and... more

Heather and her family were really welcoming and gave plenty of tips and advice on how to maximise our short week on the island. She certainly goes the extra mile. Thank you, Heather! The house had everything you would need - and more - the facilities were excellent. This was our first Christmas abroad as a family, and I don't... more

Thank you so much to Heather for an amazing place to explore Madeira! Fantastic place to be, so much to offer, and you are an amazing host, there when needed! Just far enough away from the bustle of Funchal, but great to be so close to those amazing views, and stunning scenery! I have the distinct feeling that this wont... more

Additional amenities & feature info
The bedrooms are extremely spacious and well equipped and are fitted with overhead fans for those still sultry nights. The sliding glass doors that lead out to the garden can be shuttered in the traditional way for extra privacy or for those sensible afternoon siestas.
There is a stunning swimming pool area landscaped into the fully enclosed garden. No better place could be found for those days when doing very little but relaxing and sunbathing is what you are after.
