About Mrs Christine Hunter
In 1976, when my children were young, I went into teaching. I left full time teaching in 2001 and went into the property business, much to the disbelief of my husband, family and friends. I bought a large 4 storey Victorian building on the Isle of Wight and converted it into 8 luxury flats, which I sold. I am still involved in the property business and love it.
Mrs Christine Hunter purchased this House in 2008
Why Mrs Christine Hunter chose Estreito da Calheta
I started travelling to Madeira about 15 years ago and fell in love with the island and the people. I bought a large piece of land in 2004 and had 5 lovely houses built, which were completed in 2008, just in time for the 'financial slump'! Four of the houses I have now sold. and the 5th is being kept for for holiday lets. I particularly liked this piece of land because it was fairly flat, only 150m above sea level and had stunning views. I had the houses built because I didn't want a 'time-share'. I wanted something that I owned for as long as I wanted and didn't have to give back at the end of a certain period and I don't regret it at all.
What makes this House unique
With its easy access to the dual carriageway, I have the best of both worlds, being able to get easily to Funchal, if I want the bustle of a large city, or out into the beautiful country side for a walk but also to be able to spend my evenings on the patio or balcony of the house, listening to the crickets singing, looking out over the Atlantic Ocean and watching the twinkling lights appear on the mountainside in the evening light, truly magic!

vacances à Estreito da calheta
nous avons passé des vacances très agréables sur une île riche en diversité de paysages et de découvertes. le logement bien conçu avec ce qu'il faut pour le confort de chacun.
Juste un petit bémol sur la présence d'un petit arbuste qui gène la visibilité de la vue sur l'océan depuis la table de repas extérieur.
Accueil chaleureux et appréciable.
Très bon séjour
La maison est très fonctionnelle et très agréable avec des enfants. De plus, le quartier est très calme. Nous avons beaucoup apprécié de prendre les repas sur la terrasse avec vue sur l'océan.
Sehr schöne Ferienwohnung
Wir hatten trotz des durchwachsenes Wetter eine sehr schöne Zeit in dem Ferienhaus. Die Lage des Hauses bietet sich prima für Wanderungen im Zentrum der Insel sowie im Westen der Insel an. Man ist auch in ca. 30 Minuten in Funchal.
Das Haus war super sauber und aufgeräumt. Es fehlte uns an nichts.
A beautiful house on a beautiful island
The house was very clean, and all the rooms were of very good quality. We were welcomed by the neighbour, who was very friendly. We had a beautiful view on the ocean and on the mountains.
The road from the airport to the house was easy to ride in approximately 1 hour.
We made a lot of road trips, wanderings, we went to the Dolphins by a catamaran, we visited Funchal, the caves in Sao Vicente.
So we had an excellent vacation on Madeira!!!
fantastic holiday home with an amazing sea-view
We had a very nice time in this great holiday home. The house is very well equipped and the view from the terrace and from many of the windows to the sea is a dream. We can highly recommend this holiday home and would love to come back. Thank you very much for everything.
Thank you so much for your lovely review, I am so glad that you enjoyed your stay.
Calheta is ideally set on the SW coast of Madeira, in one of the sunniest and warmest parts of the island. The sandy beach and Marina, with its waterside cafés and bars make it an ideal location for families and individuals alike. Easy access to the dual carriageway means that within 30 minutes you could either be in the bustling town of Funchal, with its harbour, casino, theatre, numerous bars, restaurants and night-life or in the tranquil area of Paul do Serra, for one of the many levada walks through the most beautiful, picturesque scenery. The amazing abundance of flowers, throughout the year, the wine and flower festivals and the friendly people make Madeira a truly wonderful experience.
