Peaceful & Romantic, Loreto
Villa | 3 bedrooms | sleeps 6
This luxurious villa located on the edge of Loreto, a traditional Madeiran village above Arco da Calheta. It is equally as perfect for a couple wanting a romantic sojourn as it is for a family wanting quality time relaxing and enjoying each other.
The three bedrooms, huge sitting room, dining room and facilities are equipped for casual or smart entertainment - family time or entertaining business associates. The location is outstanding, not only in terms of views but for gaining access to the roads leading to the capital, Funchal, or roads West to explore the natural beauty of the island.
The sundecks around the pool and house are very private and afford views across the bananas and vines to the 180 degree ocean view.

"Wonderful and relaxing villa..."
We were looking for somewhere a little special to holiday and celebrate our anniversary somewhere quiet and beautiful. We were certainly not disappointed with our stay at loreto luxury villa which is built into the cliffs just outside of the quiet and scenic village of loreto. The villa which gave us amazing views, a peaceful and stunning location and a five star hotel quality luxury villa was absolutely just what we were looking for ( no actually much better ) We celebrated a delicious meal on our anniversary evening at the local Italian restaurant which served very tasty and reasonably priced food with a great quality wine list to choose from. We will certainly be returning to loreto luxury villa in the future as we thoroughly enjoyed one of the loveliest holidays there. Thank you so very much to Peter and Jane for organising and delivering a cake and champagne for us to celebrate on our anniversary this just added to our lovely stay.... Thank you.

"Beautiful Villa with Stunning Ocean View"
Having enjoyed our initial holiday there a couple of years ago, my partner and I recently visited the beautiful island of Madeira for the second time. We wanted some rest and relaxation so decided to book a private villa rather than staying in a hotel in Funchal, as we done on our previous visit.
This villa is near Calheta in the more tranquil south west of the island and it's in a perfect spot for chilling out. We had ample space as the villa is easily large enough for three couples. The ocean aspect is simply stunning and we enjoyed eating breakfast out on the sun terrace every day, before sunbathing by the pool.
The villa is advertised as luxury and it certainly ticked that box for us. It's tastefully decorated and provided everything we needed to make our stay comfortable, including a dishwasher, large TV and wi-fi internet.
The property managers Peter and Jane were particularly friendly and helpful in meeting us at the start and end of our stay.
We enjoyed exploring the local area - there's a great pizza restaurant just up the road in Loreto village and a local shop that does tasty sandwiches and garoto coffee. The local town of Calheta just down the hill has more restaurants, a well stocked supermarket, tasty ice cream parlour and two sand beaches. We are already planning our next trip and have recommended this place to friends and family.

"Stunning villa = amazing holiday!"
We have recently returned from a fantastic holiday in Madeira and had the most relaxing stay in this stunning villa!
Upon arrival to Madeira we contacted Peter and Jane, the letting agents, to inform them when we would be arriving at the villa. As soon as we pulled up they were already there to offer us a friendly welcome. They showed us into the villa, provided us with our keys and gave us a tour around which made us feel at home straight away.
We couldn't believe the size of the villa and the beautiful surrounding views of the local life and ocean. It definitely exceeded all of our expectations! The decor is very modern and you are provided with everything you need for your stay... plenty of bedding, towels for both the pool side and bathrooms, all kitchen crockery and appliances, a large flat screen TV, DVD player and wifi.
We spent most of our time poolside and there was plenty of outside furniture to enjoy the ocean views. We met the pool cleaner who was very friendly and does a very good job in keeping the pool very clean and well maintained.
During the evenings we mostly ate at the local Pizzeria in Loreto which is just a short walk up from the villa and offers a great selection of Italian foods. We also tried the local dish, Espetada, in Camara de Lobos which is highly recommended. There is also a BBQ provided at the villa and we brought food to cook from the supermarket in Calheta, Pingo Dolce.
Overall we had a fantastic holiday and staying at this villa made it even better. Can't wait to book up for next year!

In 2011 after touring around Europe we decided to have a few quite days before the long journey home back to Oz. We were able to get some much needed rest in a FAB villa in Calheta Maderia. It was just what we needed, private, clean with the most magnificent view that we took in while lounging by the most scrumptious pool. Looking forward to getting back there on our next travels.
