“Perfect relaxing break”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 2 April 2014

If you want a break 'far from the madding crowd' this is the perfect place. So relaxing I read 6 books in a week. The sound of the waves on the shore below and the beautiful sunsets made this holiday. The villa is well equipped and very clean. Robert and Gill the owners are on hand but are not obtrusive. Due to the up or down journeys needed to restaurants, bars, beach & supermarket a car is very useful unless you are very fit! Great location to visit other parts of the island. Overall a first class experience.

5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 3 July 2009

Casa Palmeira is a semi detached bungalow type property situated on the side of the cliff overlooking Calheta beach with beautiful terraced gardens which both preoperties (Casa Palmeira and Casa Nolina) share. It has it's own private sun terrace and also a space for eating outside through the patio doors from the living area. The property sleeps two, is well equiped and spotlessly clean. The owners live further up the cliffside and their property is reached by steps from the garden. There is ample space to park a car in the area below the gardens and both properties are secure behind locked gates. Because Casa Palmeira is in an elevated position there are quite a few steps to climb to reach the property so anyone with limited mobility would have difficulty. Gill and Rob the owners of both properties made us so welcome, were on hand to give any advice required and at the same time respected our need for privacy. We stayed for a fortnight and found it the ideal base to walk the many beautiful Levadas. It is a 10 minute walk to the lovely man made sandy beach in Calheta, the local supermarket and other shops, the marina and cafe bars are just along from the beach and will take a further 5 minutes on foot. The use of a hire car is not essential, we didn't hire one, we used the local bus service and the occassional taxi to take us to the start of some of the walks. The Calheta Beach Hotel runs a mini bus to Funchal three times a week and if they have any spare seats (residents first) you can go to Funchal for the day for 15 euros return, you get about 5 hours to do whatever you like. We went up to Monte by cable car and looked round the Palace gardens, had lunch and then back down to Funchal where we still had ample time to look round. Sight seeing trips and guided Lavada walks can also be booked through the same hotel and we took advantage of this service and had some excellent days out. I would certainly reccommend this property, everything was of high standard.
