Casa do Avo is a two bedroom cottage situated in a very calm area in Arco da Calheta. You can get to the nearest beaches (Madalena do Mar or Calheta) in only 15 minutes by car. You can also get to the mountains in 10 minutes by car. The cottage has a fantastic network of trails and levadas. There are 2 (Madalena do Mar and Achada) of the more than 200 trails criss-crossing the island’s basalt rock masses, taking hikers into a rare natural world. Along these irrigation channels you will come across species of fauna and flora found hardly anywhere else in the world, in Madeira’s traditional Laurissilva Forest, which has been declared a World Natural Heritage Site.
Nearby you can find small markets, restaurants and bars were you can taste the famous Poncha of Madeira.
Depending on the time you visit us you can assist to religious celebrations or to various events on the island, like Christmas, New Year’s Eve, Carnival, Flower Party...
Come and have fun with us
