we've stayed in Funchal 4 times and loved it but fancied a change. There seem to be quite a few villas for rent in Arco De Caleta. Never been there so my question is, are there many bars and restaurants in this area. I know there are some by the Calheta marina but we don't really want to hire a car on holiday so are there any in Arco? We want to stay in a villa that's 15 minutes walk or a short taxi ride to places to eat out and/or supermarkets. We usually stay at Jardins do Lago in funchal and walk into Funcahl but ride back. That's the maximum sort of distance we would be prepared to stay out of town. Can anyone compare the two areas?
