The remote controlled gates which open onto a gentle slope, and the one small low step into the house, coupled with the downstairs double bedroom, make this house suitable for wheelchair access, or for the less physically able. The small outside patio area and BBQ make this a perfect setting for watching the sunset over the sea or the twinkling lights from hills of nearby Estrela in the evenings, whilst dining outside.
My English speaking representative who also looks after the property for me, will arrange to meet you on your arrival, answer any questions and give you the keys. She will also provide a small 'welcome pack'. A 'Secuity Deposit' cheque/cash of 200 euros, will be taken on your arrival to cover against damages but this is refunded before your departure, after the property is inspected.
The Madeira region
Madeira, which is Portuguese, is known as 'the floating garden' and is a lush, fertile, tropical vacation paradise, boasting beautiful scenery, hospitable people and gleaming sunshine. It owes its warm, pleasant climate to the fact that it is only 350km from the coast of Africa but 750km from mainland Portugal. It was officially discovered in 1415 and this quaint 'old world' masterpiece of nature is a canvas alive with folklore and time honoured tradition, with charming, pristine villages decorating the island. The exports include bananas, sugar cane, madeira wine, honey cake and poncha (a locally made drink), Apart from being very popular with walkers who enjoy the beautiful lavada walks, Madeira is also popular for sailing, deep sea fishing, whale and dolphin watching and paragliding. Throughout the year there are various festivals, which include flowers; wine; the sea and jazz. The spectacular fire work display on New Year's Eve is one not to be missed.
The village of Estreito da Calheta is on the west coast of Madeira and is favoured for its beautiful weather and fantastic sunsets.
Although you need a car, whilst staying here, everything is within close proximity. Local cafes/bars, restaurants, general stores, supermarket, shops, banks, pharmacy, hospital, beach and marina are all within 4-6 minutes drive away. The dual carriageway is only 2 minutes drive away and will take you towards Funchal and the airport in one direction and out to Porto Moniz, with its famous natural rock pools, in the other.
Calheta's sandy beach and marina are 4 minutes drive away and has many cafes and bars where you could get a snack or full course meal, a very pleasant spot, particularly during the warm evenings.
The main bustling town of Funchal is approximately 25 minutes drive away and here you will find lace making factories, shops, restaurants and bars. There is also a casino, with evening 'supper shows' and a cable car, from which you get fantastic views over Funchal. Madeira is a garden paradise and there are several beautiful garden areas, in which to view the vast array of flowers.
