House | 2 bedrooms | sleeps 4
This old stable is beautifully refurbished and has a cool patio under the vines. The area around is mainly farmed and perfect if you would like to stay close to the beach.
The house consist of 2 bedrooms upstairs (both with double beds).
Downstairs you have the sitting room with a sofa that can be used as a sofa bed for 2 people. There is a fully equipped kitchen, bathroom and a laundry area. We also have a baby cot available if needed.
We encourage all our guests to taste the local produce from our lands when in season. Potatoes, sweet potatoes, corn, onions, lettuce, tomatoes, herbs and of course grapes!
If you are visiting us in the time of picking the grapes, you are welcome to take part in picking or stamping!
You will need a car when staying in the Stable. There is no real buss connection and even though it is 3 minutes drive to Calheta beach, it is not possible to walk because the road goes through a tunnel and there is no real sidewalks. We advice you to hire a car at Funchal Airport. Then you can pick up and drop off the car at the airport. There is also a car-hire company in Calheta, but their prices tends to be the same as those at the airport.
Every day there is a bread-van that drives past the house, selling fresh bread and cakes. Make sure you try the portuguese custard tarts called Pasteis de Nata. (they are jummy!)
If you need internet access, there is free Wi-fi at Calheta Beach. You can also use the internet for free at the Multi Media Center (next to the police station) at Calheta Beach or at the library in the village Jardim do Mare. They also have free wi-fi at the library.

The Madeira region
The island of Madeira is famous for its lush nature, good climate and world known Madeira wine.
The island is very green all year round with endless opportunities for walking in the mountains and along the levadas (water canals).
The climate is very mild and stable throughout the year, averaging 23-26 in the summer and 18-20 in the winter.
Our house is located in Calheta on the south side of the island. The only sandy beach in Madeira is located 3 minutes drive away and is perfect for swimming and ideal for families with children. There are shops and restaurants along the waterfront.
The charming village of Jardin do Mar is only 5 minutes drive away. This village is very picturesque and lies beautifully along the cost. Park your car at the parking and walk to the village square. Walk down the pedestrian road to the left past a local shop and follow the road down to the promenade. At the end follow the signs to Joe's bar for a refreshing drink or lunch (At the top when the road forks keep right to the bar and parking).
