Villa | 4 bedrooms | sleeps 8
Large balcony, terrace and very big glass windows to watch and enjoy all day sunshine and sunsets of sun go down over the sea. Sleeps 8 - 4 bedrooms. Our beautiful stone Villa 'Sunshine' is just 25 minutes drive from Funchal on excellent motorway - Via Rapida. Our friend and agent Ezekiel will show you where the house is and can arrange transport from the airport if you prefer. As you approach the property there is a gated area and an inside private car port. The road level accesses direct the ground floor into 2 bedrooms and the ground floor living, sitting area, kitchen, bathroom and pool, so you don't have to heave luggage up and down stairs. An internal and external (this one independent beside the house in front of the car port) staircases leads to the First floor living accommodation with double sitting areas, 2 bedroom (one En-Suite), balcony and big glass windows facing the fabulous ocean and mountain view..
The villa has a big space in the front enter and approached via the pool terrace, All this area a very nice place to be outdoors. On the this ground level the kitchen, main enter door, one bedroom, laundry room and living room opens out onto a covered patio with the pool. The pool is approx 5x8m and 1.5 m deep with steps to get in or out and an staircase in aluminium. There is a large tiled area round the pool. 1 loungers and a table with 4 chairs. Beside the pool there is a small garden and if you swim from the pool you can see the see as a Crystal infinity pool.
Funchal is the only airport on the island and it is approx. 45 minutes from the house. We recommend hiring a car at the airport but keep it small. Once off the main roads Madeira roads are narrow.
There are no natural sand golden beaches in Madeira but one has been created only 5 minutes drive away. The rocky beaches are great. The house is in the village of Arco da Calheta, only 25 minutes drive to Funchal and all it offers. It is a great location for walkers.
For snorkelling or scuba diving. The fish are wonderful and the waters clear.

The Madeira region
Travel: Airport at 35 minutes. Coach tours. Because Madeira is a relatively small island a rented car makes the 2 Madalena twin villas a good base also for sightseeing.
Entertainment: Madalena do Mar restaurant is one of the best sea front restaurant in Madeira Island! As well Calheta beach restaurants are very good.
Attractions: the houses provided a good base from which to tootle off and explore nearby villages and towns, walking during the day along Madeira's fantastic levedas and whiled away the afternoons in the secluded garden suntrap surrounded by banana trees.had double aspect views of the sea and the mountain and was filled with sunshine for morning cup of tea in bed.
Other Activities: boat trips, volley ball court, etc..
Arco da Calheta is considered the island's warmest area, where the sun shines for longest. Arco da Calheta is also, known for its traditional fishermen's district and its lovely promenade by the beach running from one end of the village to the other.
