Absolutely amazing villa, really felt no need to go out anywhere else for dinner or drinks on an evening (although forced ourselves one night). The pool and garden was sun drenched all day, right up until evening. Location to the beach is great, and you can be there within five minutes by car. The local supermarket just opposite the beach is called pingo doce and has more than anything you might need, including vegetarian, non dairy options. There is also a couple of little local mini markets within five minutes walking distance. A few bars, which we never went to and a kids playground next to the church. The apartment is kitted out to a really high spec, with all the kitchen utensils you need, there is two kitchens, which is great if you are more than one family. The beds were comfy, great hot showers and more than enough bathrooms for all. We had everything we requested provided for us, like two cots and high chairs. More than enough towels, everything was just top notch. The pool was lovely and clean at a nice temperature. The villa is in a really nice quiet area and very close to the lavada which you can follow up for a nice, but very steep walk! I definitely recommend the villa, it was beautiful and I can't fault anything. I also seriously recommend a car for getting about and something with some decent power as some of the hills around the area are very steep indeed! Totally 5 star holiday :)
We have just had a very enjoyable stay in Villa Panoramica. It is a large, modern and stylish Villa with all the amenities you could wish for. The house and well-sized (heated) pool have a wonderful view over the bay of Arco de Calheta.
The Villa is large with easily enough space for 8 people. It is stylishly designed on a black & white theme. The whole place has been created with a great deal of thought and an eye to detail. It has a well-appointed kitchen and both the kitchen and lounge have large sliding doors giving easy access to the pool area.
The house has a very good internet connection and TV with plenty of channels in English, including Fox and CNN.
Jorge, the owner is extremely helpful and positive and speaks perfect English, which makes life very easy! He is very easy to contact by phone whenever you need some information or a little help.
I also want to mention that Jorge has an excellent team of cleaners, which means that the Villa is absolutely spotless when you arrive.
Villa Panoramica is highly recommended!
Had a great stay at this villa, Jorge who was our contact could not do enough to help us, nothing was too much trouble. Great suggestions on places to visit and restaurants to eat at.
Jorge himself also worked as bar and restaurant manager at a hotel in Calheta, we ate there twice and were not disappointed the food was excellent.
Will be advising friends and family who intend visiting Madeira to contact Jorge.
Villa itself had wonderful ocean views from all forward facing windows, comfortable beds and well appointed with tasteful furniture.
