SISTER PROPERTY TO VILLA DO MAR I AND VILLA DO MAR II Located on a fajã (a piece of land at the foot of a cliff) in the sunny Calheta area, close to its sister villas (Villa do Mar I and Villa do Mar II) and slightly elevated, Vila do Mar III has been beautifully converted from a farmers barn into a delightful villa with outstanding views and a heated pool that reaches into the living area. The living area is full of light and has full length sliding windowpanes that provide direct access to the pool and those gorgeous sea-views. It leads to the large fully equipped kitchen with a large open barbecue. There are many walks around Calheta and easy access to the plateau of Paul da Serra, with its many levada walks, makes this villa perfectly located for walking in Madeira and for enjoying ...SISTER PROPERTY TO VILLA DO MAR I AND VILLA DO MAR II Located on a fajã (a piece of land at the foot of a cliff) in the sunny Calheta area, close to its sister villas (Villa do Mar I and Villa do Mar II) and slightly elevated, Vila do Mar III has been beautifully converted from a farmers barn into a delightful villa with outstanding views and a heated pool that reaches into the living area.

It leads to the large fully equipped kitchen with a large open barbecue. There are many walks around Calheta and easy access to the plateau of Paul da Serra, with its many levada walks, makes this villa perfectly located for walking in Madeira and for enjoying a lovely holiday surrounded by the beautiful Madeira countryside. All bedrooms are on the first floor and have en-suite shower rooms. Bedroom 1 - Double bed, French doors to the balcony and air conditioning. Bedroom 2 - Beds can be made up as one double bed or two singles beds, French doors to the balcony and air conditioning. Bedroom 3 - Beds can be made up as one double bed or two singles beds, French doors to the balcony and air conditioning The villa has a traditional lookout point at the edge of the pool terrace. Perfect to appreciate those views during afternoon cocktail hour! There is a deserted pebble beach approximately 30 metres below the street level, reached via a rough track. Although public, the difficult access makes it virtually private. A lovely little beach hut is located right on the rocky beach 30 metres below, and shared by, the three Villas do Mar. A front terrace with sunbeds, outdoor shower and built-in barbecue and large table (seating for 16), is complemented with a kitchen (fridge, 4-ring hob) and toilet. Access is via a pathway with steps that leads from the level of the Villas do Mar down to the beach. Cleaning and linen change is provided every 7 days. All linen and towels are provided, including towels for the swimming pool. There is a free Wi-Fi connection in the Villa and a telephone that may be used free for local calls to landlines Car hire is essential as the villa is located just above sea-level at the bottom of the cliff. As the access is narrow and steep, for your comfort you should hire a smaller size car. Swimming Pool Dimensions and heating Type: Rectangular Length: 8,40 metres Width: 5,40 metres Depth: from 0,70m to 1,60m Pool heating is optional and costs 140,00€ per week for a setting of 24ºC, payable on arrival in cash. For each additional degree setting a supplement of €20 per wek applies, up to a maximum of 26ºC. Pool heating can be provided and should be requested at least one week in advance. Should it be requested after arrival at the villa, the minimum charge applicable is one week, which is payable from the time the heating is turned on. A security deposit of 100€ is required on arrival, refunded at the end of the stay should there be no damages A few minutes by car will take you to the resort town of Calheta, which, with its man-made golden beaches, is popular with tourists and locals alike. There is a beautiful marina and a good choice of bars and restaurants. There are a handful of boutique shops and a good supermarket. Calheta is famous for producing the best white rum 'Aguardente', a special ingredient of the typical Madeiran drink 'Poncha'. If you are interested in knowing how the white rum is made, we recommend a tour of the 'Engenho da Calheta' the rum distillery where you can wander around and sample the produce. Centro das Artes Casa da Mudas is a new centre located at the edge of a cliff overlooking the sea and was built to host superb art exhibitions, musical performances and other events. Madeira is a paradise for those who enjoy walking and hiking, and Arco da Calheta is ideally situated, having easy access to the road network and most places on the island. Within 15 minutes DRIVE are the beaches at Ponta do Sol and Ribeira Brava, the esplanades at the surfing paradises of Jardim do Mar and Paul do Mar, the laurisilva forest of Madeira (a UNESCO world heritage site - http://whc.**********/en/list/934) and the many walks in Paul da Serra (1500 meters). An easy 30-minute drive brings you to the capital, Funchal. Booking Notes The advertised prices are based on a 4-person occupancy and supplements apply should additional people join you for any length of time. A security deposit of 200€ or £200 is payable on arrival in cash. This is returned should there be no breakages or damage to the property. To secure your reservation, a deposit of 30% is required, or the full amount if within 8 weeks or arrival, and the balance is due 8 weeks prior to arrival. Should you cancel up to 8 weeks prior to arrival only the deposit is non-refundable, and within this period the full amount. Certificate of Excellence from TripAdvisor in 2018.

What an amazing place for a holiday, absolutely stunning - so beautiful surroundings and decor. The only down side was the very steep and scary access road.

Glad to hear that you enjoyed the villa. The access is a little challenging but worth it to stay in such a secluded spot with those amazing sea views.
