It was originally built and used as the owner's summer retreat. The house has air conditioning (lounge and bedrooms) and free Wi-Fi internet connection. There are many walks around Calheta and easy access to the plateau of Paul da Serra, with its many levada walks, makes this villa perfectly located for walking in Madeira and for enjoying a lovely holiday surrounded by the beautiful Madeira countryside.

Electric swimming pool heating is optional and costs, 140€ per week for a setting of 24ºC, paid in cash on arrival. A supplement of 20€ per week applies for each additional degree setting up to a maximum of 26ºC Pool heating can be provided and should be requested at least one week in advance. Should it be requested after arrival at the villa, the minimum charge applicable is one week, which is payable from the time the heating is turned on. Car hire is essential as the villa is located just above sea-level at the bottom of the cliff. As the access is narrow and steep, for your comfort you should hire a smaller size car. Madalena do Mar is a small village located on the southwest coast of the island with beautiful sea and cliff views. Its name came from the legendary Polish Prince of the 15th century, Henry Allemão. He lost a battle in 1444 and was given land by João Gonçalves Zarco and established a great-populated farm where he built a chapel and dedicated to the Saint Mary Madeleine. It is a characteristic fishing village with a beautiful promenade along the pebble beach. Its location and accompanying climate has helped it to establish the biggest banana plantations on the island. There are several restaurants for lazy lunches or evenings out. Calheta with its man-made golden beaches is popular with tourists and locals alike. There is a beautiful marina and a good choice of bars and restaurants. There is a handful of boutique shops and a good supermarket. Calheta is famous for producing the best white rum 'Aguadente', a special ingredient of the typical Madeiran drink 'Poncha'. If you are interested in knowing how the white rum is made, we recommend a tour of the 'Engenho da Calheta' the rum distillery where you can Tourist License / Licencia de turismo N °: 26237/ALMore
