The space

Our two spacious cottages enjoy a privileged location in Estreito da Calheta which is situated on the sunny west coast of this idyllic island. 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.
Each cottage has its own private terrace and the panoramic views are spectacular! Lavender Cottage is a 2 bedroomed, 2 bathroom cottage; perfect for 4 people.
The living area with its vaulted ceiling comprises an 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. 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. The kitchens are fully equipped and we supply all the necessary linens and towels. There is a stunning swimming pool area landscaped into the fully enclosed shared garden. No better place could be found for those days when doing very little but relaxing and sunbathing is what you are after.
Banda do Sol 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.
Within walking distance there is a mini market and cafe. And if walking is what you enjoy then this area offers some of the finest levada walking on Madeira!

Heather was an extremely welcoming and accommodating host and the property itself was perfect for the relaxing break we were after. It had everything we needed and lots of extra little bonuses included the BBQ, the pool and of course the fantastic views of the sea and the hills. Madeira itself is a great place and our holiday was great. Having such a nice place to come back to everyday was the icing on the cake. Thanks Heather for letting us stay.

A completely wonderful place to stay - the accommodation and hosts were exceptional, and Madeira is a wonderful place to stay. Wish we could have stayed longer.

Heather , charmed us with their reception . We are waiting for a delicious dinner and a lot of nice gifts. The house is very nice and comfortable. Of course you'll need a car to explore the island and travel . Within 5 minutes drive there is a good sandy beach Calheta and a supermarket. We and the kids really liked the reception. We want to go back with friends .

Me and my family would like to thank Heather. It was one the best stay ever. We had "EVERYTHING" what we could need. Villa is so beautiful and the name "Lavender Cottage" is the right name. :) Heather and her parents are very friendly and always ready to help us or to give us an advice. Thank you once more and believe we will come back soon.

Wir waren sehr zufrieden und haben uns bei Heather sehr wohlgefühlt. Die Aussicht aufs Meer ist grandios, besonders vom Pool aus. Das Haus hat einen liebevoll angelegten Garten und es ist alles vorhanden was man so zum kochen und baden brauchen kann. Vielen Dank für die nette Gastfreundschaft!

Beste Heather, zurück im kühlen und grauen Hamburg denken wir mit Sehnsucht an das warme und grüne Madeira zurück. Der Aufenthalt in deiner geräumigen Villa mit dem herrlichen Blick auf Calheta und aufs Meer hat uns sehr gefallen. Wir bedanken uns für deine fürsorgliche Gastfreundschaft und freuen uns schon auf die Wiederkehr. Mit einem herzlichen Gruß auch an deine Eltern, Klaus

Très bon accueil, beau panier de bienvenue ! Heather est une mine de bons conseils et très disponible pour ces hôtes. Le logement est parfait, la piscine est un vrai plus. A recommander sans hésitation pour une découverte de cette belle île.
