This ideal villa is in a beautiful position and is a real sun trap. It is surrounded by banana plantations and looks out over the Atlantic. It is well equipped and well maintained. A word of warning; If you holiday during the winter months and suffer from cold feet - take a hot water bottle!!
The perfect place to stay on Madeira.
This is a fantastic place to stay. Quiet but close enough to Calheta to walk with ease. Beautiful views from terrace and swimming pool, a great place to watch the sun set over the sea. The villa very clean and looked after. The villa is situated in a perfect location, about a hour's drive from the airport and central enough to access the interior of the island. A car is a must but one little warning, don't drive it down the hill by the villa, it's very steep and a very poor surface, you may not get up again.! We will definitely book this villa next time we visit Madeira.
A Villa with a stunning location and views.
We recently stayed in this villa for ten days, it was sublime, the villa was exactly as described, it is in a very tranquil and quiet location and, the views cannot be underestimated. The fact that its very close to the sea means that any breeze is slightly cooler than higher up in Calheta but, don't underestimate how hot it can get. Hence the swimming pool is a must, The covered Al Fresco dining area is brilliant as nobody has to sit in the sunshine whilst eating, a large stand up BBQ has now been built into the wall near the steps to the pool. There is a small supermarket just down the hill at the marina but, we started to use the Continent Hypermarket at Ribiera Brava because it is bigger and had a better range. This property is truly worth a visit.
Thank you very much for your comments. This really is a special place and we are very happy that you have enjoyed your stay!

All good except the lumpy pillows.
"I liked almost everythin...
"I liked almost everything. The house is located in a quiet place (perhaps the loudest sound is the singing of nightingales and, sometimes in the evenings, frogs).
Clean air and stunning ocean view make you forget about time. The house is clean and cozy. The kitchen is very well equipped. Veranda and comfortable furniture on her cause separate delight.
Perhaps the only minus is road to the house.
Conclusion: we know where to stay during our next visit to Madeira."
"An absolutely marvellous...
"An absolutely marvellous place. Stunning views of the coastline from the terrace. The house is well equipped and the swimmingpool is placed so you will have a view of the sea and coastline from there as well. The only noises are from the waves, the wind in the banana tree leaves and - during the evenings - the crickets. The small cement road leading down to the house is very steep indeed. It is highly recommended to park the car at the paved road and walk the 50 meters down to the house."
Casa do Mar is in Calheta, about 30 minutes from Funchal and 45 minutes from the airport. To get to Calheta from the airport you need to take the freeway towards Calheta: Airport - Funchal - Ribeira Brava - Ponta do Sol - Calheta. Casa do Mar is about 1 Km from Vila da Calheta.
