Holiday destination Calheta, Madeira
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 (fridger, 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.
A few minutes by car will take you to the resort town of Calheta, which, with its man-made golden beaches, is very popular. There is a beautiful marina and a good choice of bars and restaurants. There are a handful of boutique shops and a good supermarket.
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 are the beaches at Ponta do Sol and Ribeira Brava, the esplanades at the surfing paradises of Jardim do Mar and Paul do Mar and the many walks in Paul da Serra (1500 meters).
An easy 30-minute drive brings you to the capital, Funchal.
Full driving instructions and check-in procedures will be provided approximately one month prior to arrival.
You will be met and shown around the villa.
