The space

A beautiful fully equipped traditional holiday home is located in an attractive village of Arco da Calheta, situated in the south west of the island. This holiday home is absolutely unique and gives you all the peaceful and relaxing holidays; because of being on a secondary road; there is no traffic noise. But, still located just a few minutes from all the amenities, like supermarket, coffees, bakery, restaurants, bank, ATM, health care, hair dresser, and also easy access to sea or to water games. Great place, either for a family, group of friends, or just a couple celebrating a special date; just for a break.
There are 2 bedrooms, 1 bathroom, 1 toilet and kitchen & dining room, balcony with uninterrupted 180º views of the ocean and village. Providing a perfect place to relax with a cool glass of wine after enjoying a day out, perhaps on a local levada walk or if you like the idea there is even a paragliding school a mere of few minutes from your door.

Rosa is a great host and the cottage is absolutely adorable. For us the location was perfect - far away from crowded tourist places, but at the same time just a few minutes away from any amenities you might need. The view from the terrace is absolutely amazing. The kitchen is very well equipped and the house in general offers great values for money. Just one piece of advice, if you plan to visit in the winter months, be sure to bring some warm socks, because it can sometimes get a bit chilly inside:)

Rosa is the perfect host: Communication was fast and friendly at every time, a lot of helpful information was given in advance and during the welcome we got every explanation and perfect answers to all of our questions, Rosa is a friendly "living encyclopedia"! Thank you so much! Meeting on the parking-place and taking us the way to the house is very helpful. The drive-up to the house really prepares you for the steep roads at Madeira, it was a challenge, but also fun and always successful with our little car. The location of the house is quite perfect: Between bananas and wine gardens away from the streets with a very marvellous view over the village arco calheta, from the mountains to the sea, sun from the morning till late afternoon. And a local supermarket, bars, cafes in walking distance (although a car is really recommended for the stay)! The house itself is a "room wonder": tiny from the outside, but really spacious inside and very well equipped. We often used the kitchen for cooking and living (as November-evenings are sometimes too cold for sitting on the balconies). The location is perfect to discover the west of Madeira. Paul da Serra and Rabacal for walkings are very close-by and also the North is not far via Encumeada tunnel. We loved the possibility to stay in the south or moving to the north, depending from the weather and the interests for the day. We enjoyed our stay at Madeira and especially in this nice and quite location!

We have really enjoyed our stay at this sunny cottage. The simple house is more spacious than photos. It is well equipped with everything we need. We have spent quite a lot of times in the house to sit in the terrace and read books. It was really relaxing. The area of Calheta and around has many beautiful walking paths. And it is also very easy to get to other areas by car. And Rosa is also very friendly and gave us all information we'd need. We have had a wonderful stay.

Rosa was a dream. She patiently helped us on more than one occasion through all the twists and turns of Calheta life. Our stay was much more pleasant thanks to her. The neighborhood was extremely safe and we found the locals to be very friendly and helpful.
