kitchen: Large kitchen and dining area converted from the original shop and still retaining the shop counter and cupboards. The kitchen is fully equipped for those who enjoy cooking and entertaining at home with the opportunity to experiment using exotic fruits from the garden. The refectory table seats 8 people.

The upstairs: The pretty hallway with original parquet floor and original painted walls in pastel colours leads the length of the house opening onto a terrace either end. The main bathroom with parquet floor and central bath with shower attachment toilet and bidet is half tiled with local tiles.

The two double bedrooms decorated in pastel shades each have two windows – one each opening onto the east-facing terrace. One bedroom has a 140/190cms double bed and hanging space for clothes. Both bedrooms have ceiling fans. The second bedroom is “pink” with the second window looking out over the garden and hills. A 160/200cms double bed in this room comes with hanging space for clothes, colourful bed linen and summer and winter duvets for all bedrooms are provided. Towels (but not beach towels) extra pillows and bed linen are also provided for guests.

The upstairs terraces : The upstairs terraces are reached via the house or an exterior staircase. Find locally commissioned sun-loungers, table and chairs so you can enjoy breakfast in the morning sun or just a relaxing read, or spend your time gazing out to sea. Part shaded by the vines, part exposed to direct sun, you can idle the hours away here in comfort.

Outside the west-facing terrace also has an exterior staircase leading from the upstairs hallway down to the main terrace.

An original Portuguese seating bench, a dining table and chairs offer “al fresco” eating under the grape-vines. The original outside cookhouse has been converted into a BBQ room with the original outside stone sinks.

Location description from owner

The Madeira Islands 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

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.
