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 the news channels included in the TV programme menu or by connecting to our wireless broadband internet facilities. Within walking distance there is a mini market, a cafe, pharmacy and health centre. And if walking is what you enjoy then this area offers some of the finest levada walking on Madeira! Rosemary cottage is the smaller of our two recently built villas and is perfect for your island holiday! The living area with its vaulted ceiling comprises a well equipped open plan kitchen and comfortable dining area. There is a wonderful flow between this and the glass fronted, comfortably furnished lounge area which opens onto a private terrace; ideal for alfresco dining. And for those occasional chilly days or evenings there is a cosy wood burning stove fireplace central to the living area.More

About the neighborhood
One of the pleasures of an island holiday is that the ocean is never too far away! Spend your days exploring the coastline of majestic cliffs, pebbled beaches and natural rock pools that attest to the island’s volcanic origins, or take a ferry or flight to Porto Santo and enjoy miles of golden beaches. Blessed with an almost perfect climate, visitors will soon realise that one trip to Madeira is simply not enough! Calheta is a lovely area by the sea with a nice man-made beach with golden sand, bars, toilets and changing rooms, first-aid facilities and a big marina. This beach offers a wide variety of nautical activities (canoeing, windsurf boards and catamaran rental services) and crystal clear waters. The yellow sand was brought mainly from Morocco, but also from Figueira da Foz (mainland Portugal).
