About the neighborhood
Our house is located in Calheta on the south side of the island. The only sandy beach in Madeira is located 3 minutes drive away and is perfect for swimming and ideal for families with children. There are shops and restaurants along the waterfront.

The charming village of Jardin do Mar is only 5 minutes drive away. This village is very picturesque and lies beautifully along the cost. Park your car at the parking and walk to the village square. Walk down the pedestrian road to the left past a local shop and follow the road down to the promenade. At the end follow the signs to Joe's bar for a refreshing drink or lunch (At the top when the road forks keep right to the bar and parking).

How to get there
Airport: Funchal: 34.2 mi
Distance from Funcal: 30 minutes

Directions from Funchal or Funchal Airport: Follow the motorway towards Ribeira Brava. At Riveira Brava keep on the motorway going past Ponta do Sol, Madalena do Mar. Do not turn off to Arco da Calheta or to Calheta. Here you go straight over the roundabout after the tunnel towards Prazeres. After a short while, you will get a roundabout where you take the turn off to Jardim do Mar.

Just after the chemist, take the first right (steep uphill) (Caminho Girao de Ca). Continue straight up, crossing a brigde. You will pass a road to the left and a small water point on your left. The stable is the first house on the left.
