Destination guide

See marvellous Madeira in Estreito da Calheta

If it's the way the deep blue Atlantic melds with the verdant colours of Madeira that catches your eye, or the way the rugged volcanic cliffs of this far-flung isle soar from nothing to the clouds, you're bound to love Estreito da Calheta holiday rentals. They sit draped on the low ridges west of Funchal, enfolded in pockets of vineyard and palm gardens. Many are sat within walking distance of Praia da Calheta – one of the island's few sand beaches. Others have their own panoramic pool or patio for those lazy days and long lunches under the peaks.

Things to do

Cutting-edge art in Estreito da Calheta

Believe it or not, sleepy little Estreito da Calheta is the unlikely home of one of Madeira's – nay, Portugal's – most enthralling modern art galleries. You'll find the stark basalt Brutalism of the Casa das Mudas rising against the coast and the ocean close to Praia da Calheta. Take some time to wonder at the award-winning architecture before delving inside to find exhibitions of cutting-edge photography, avant-garde sculpture works and even live performance art. There's also an excellent on-site cafe to help you mull things over once your done.


Collect yourself in Estreito da Calheta

Sleepy, historic and oozing Madeiran charm, Estreito da Calheta is a fine place to soothe weary muscles and get a bit of hard-earnt R&R. You'd be pushed to find somewhere further from the Rat Race if you tried. How does a Estreito da Calheta holiday rental with a pool overlooking the endless Atlantic Ocean sound? How about a place just steps from sandy little Praia da Calheta and its clutch of cocktail bars? Or you could always pick somewhere bathed in the scents of Madeiran jacarandas and orchids.


Every month's a good month in Estreito da Calheta

The mild climate of Madeira means Estreito da Calheta holiday rentals offer a getaway no matter the time of year. You can come in the summer months between May and August if you're after the balmiest days of all – expect averages in the mid-20s. Autumn and winter, starting in September and lasting through to March, stay pleasant but can get cool, presenting great conditions for hiking the peaks. Spring – in April and May – is also good for getting out and about in the hills and coastal reaches.

Natural features

From flowers to dolphin-spotted seas in Estreito da Calheta

Little Estreito da Calheta is dwarfed by the hulking rises of Madeira's western mountains. They shoot up behind it to form a Hawaii-like backdrop of green-coloured ridges – an enticing prospect for any hiker or budding botanist – and colourful blooms of jacarandas, orchids, lilies and flames of the forest come to life in the springtime. In front of the town is where the Atlantic Ocean sloshes against the rocky shore. Dolphins are regular visitors along the coast and there are even one or 2 sandy beaches to laze on nearby.
