The Madeira Islands region

Madeira is known for it's great weather, flora, mountains and warm seas. There are many activities available to choose from Levada walking, Mountain walks, Hiking, Sailing, Dolphin and Whale watching, Scuba diving, Big game fishing, Canyoning, Surfing, Para-gliding.

One can do a day-trip to Porto Santo and enjoy it's many kilometers of sandy beaches. It's a place where you can also just kick off your shoes and just simply relax.

Arco da Calheta

Arco da Calheta is on the south-west of the Island where we like to boast of having the best weather. It is set in a rural area. There are some restaurants within a short driving distance of the apartment.

There is a local fruit and veg shop and mini supermarket and fresh bread/rolls are available within walking distance from the apartment. The nearest sandy beach, hotel and supermarket are a 5 minute drive away.

Funchal is 30 minutes from Arco and the airport, 45 minutes. Bus services on this end of the island are few and far between, so a car is essential.

"A wonderful Christmas in Madeira!"

Our Madeiran Christmas lived up to all our expectations! Marilyn and Marc struck a good balance between attentiveness and giving us our own space. The apartment was one of the best we have stayed in. Simply but tastefully furnished, had everything we needed (even some Christmas decorations had been put up for us!). One of its main assets was the amount of light that came in off the terrace. We had a rain-free fortnight and ate nearly all our meals outside, which was wonderful. Calheta is a small hamlet on a hillside and the driving, initally, takes some getting used to, but the uninterrupted view of the sea is magical. There is a well-stocked supermarket 10 mins drive away, and Calheta beach is lovely for a swim - one of only two sandy beaches on Madeira. The slow pace of life on Madeira made us stop and relax, which is what we needed. We normally come back from frenetic city breaks exhausted and in need of a holiday; this time we truly did stop and read some books in between a few walks and drives to a few places. We would heartily recommend this property for its location, its quality and its friendly owners. And we hope to visit again for another quiet Christmas when circumstances allow.

"Simply Perfect"

Wonderful, spacious apartment for 2 with gorgeous views off of the balcony. My husband and I stayed here for our honeymoon in early September. We wanted to have a relaxing base to go hiking, away from the tourist crowds of Funchal and we could not have found a better place. Marc and Marilyn are fabulous hosts, greeting us when we first arrived and giving us excellent insider tips and recommendations for the area. The apartment is comfortable, spotlessly clean and kitted out with everything you could need from wifi to a BBQ in the garden. STRONGLY recommend a rental car. We are already planning our next stay. Thank you Marc and Marilyn!

"Excellent place to stay"

This is a well appointed excellent one bedroom penthouse apartment. The owners, Marilyn and Marc are very friendly and helpful, meeting us on arrival and providing a useful welcome pack. The driveway is quite steep and the turntable quite challenging at first but great fun once you get used to it. The stunning views from the balcony of the nearby villages, the coast and even the odd hang glider never cease to be of interest. A good base for walking and exploring the island. Always a relaxing place to return to after a marvellous day out. Excellent value and we hope to return next year. Thank you.

"Perfect place for a relaxing break"

This is a lovely place to spend a relaxing holiday & a great base from which to explore the island. The apartment was equipped with everything we needed & Marilyn & Marc were fabulous hosts. The view from the balcony is simply stunning. The local shop is a 5 minute walk & supermarket & chemist a 5 minute drive. Would definitely recommend. I'm sure we'll be back!
