TRADITIONAL MADEIRA COTTAGE
House | 2 bedrooms | sleeps 4
2 Bedrooms, 2 bathrooms, sleeps 4, pool, wireless
Traditional Madeira Cottage is a traditional Madeiran house in the village of Arco da Calheta.
The locals reckon that Arco da Calheta has the best micro-climate of all! Ans it's a quiet location . The house has two bedrooms, one with an en-suite bathroom. Downstairs is one big room which provides lounge, dining and kitchen areas. The walls are very thick stone – they are over 150 years old, part of the original cottage. This keeps the house cool in the summer, and warm in the winter.
Outside there is a swimming pool and south facing terrace. The pool is about 5 metres by 8 metres; the depth is about 1.5 metres, solar heated
There are two bedrooms upstairs. Both open on to the balcony, which faces south, giving stunning views over the sea and surrounding mountains. The first bedroom has an en-suite shower room, and there is also a family bathroom.
The shops are a short walk away but in case you arrive late in the day, ask about a welcome pack
There is a garden below the swimming pool, with a wooden house (Casa da Madeira). If the owners are staying there they may use the pool (don't worry, we are quite nice really!). You are welcome to pick fruit from the trees in the garden - these include , custard apples, passion fruit, and some young citrus trees.
Pool refurbishment: The pool was refurbished in December 2008, so you will have an even better swimming experience!
Previous guests may be pleased to learn that the parking area has been altered to make parking much easier. In addition in December 2012 an electric hob was installed to replace the gas one. For users of the high tech shower who may have experienced a cheeky coolness to the water, happy news. The gas boiler which supplied hot (well almost) has been replaced with a solar water system. This is supported by an electric immersion heater. So, cold showers by choice only now!

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.

"Very comfortable accommodation with excellent pool & view"
We visited Madeira for the first time in Sept 2014, and as we like a quiet place to stay this was just right for us. The road to the house was a bit challenging, but having hired a smallish car, we … More
