Calheta, the sea side village, enjoys the very best of all year climates and has recently been improved with yellow sandy beaches and a marina.
The sea temperature aided by the Gulf Stream permits sea swimming throughout the year.
A variety of watersports can be enjoyed together with big game and sea fishing plus whale/ dolphin watching.
The village has a supermarket, 4* hotel and good selection of restaurants and coffee bars all within a short walk.
There is a Sugar Cane Factory which as a working museum transforms the harvest into Rum ( Aguardente ) and other products including the famous Bolo do Mel ,Honey Cake.
Walkers can go inland to enjoy the mountains and levada walks through the Natural Park .
The levada system provides walkers with over 2000 km of accessible mountain walks through spectacular countryside.
Interaction with Guests
I meet them at their arrival and I'm always available to provide anything they need.
Calheta Loft is an open plan apartment with a well equipped kitchenette, comfortable living/dining area and bathroom. On the ground floor are twin beds with a curtain that separates them from the living area. Above is a mezanine, also with twin beds and a sofa bed that can accomodate a 5th person. There is a small terrace with table and chairs for the Loft apartment. There is no passing traffic, so it is quite private This apartment is particuarly well suited to families.
There are lots of apartments in Calheta but not many that are only 50 metres from the beach, so the location is ideal.
The loft was built recently so everything is new. It is tastefully furnished, bright and airy with tiled floors throughout and is the perfect base for a holiday in Madeira.
The loft is very well located and although a hire car is always useful for sightseeing, it is not essential if you are happy to spend your days lazing by the sea or sunning yourself on the beach.
Within walking distance is a good selection of restaurants, bars and cafés, the supermarket, marina and promenade. There is also an old sugar mill which was founded in 1901 and which still produces brandy and sugar syrup.
Definitely worth a visit is Casa Das Mudas, an internationally renowned arts centre which was built to promote awareness and life-long learning of art in general, contemporary art in particular.
There is a bus stop on the area.
Other Things to Note
I advise to rent a car in order of enjoying all the nice places Madeira has.
Guests will be greeted by the owners, we demand that does not exceed the capacity and enjoy all the space while respecting the environment and not destroy anything.
You will find everything clean and in order please leave it the same way.
Good experience as the place was clean, handy and well located. We were just surprised to find out they were no closed rooms (curtains only) but not a big deal. I wish we could have discussed more with Isabelle and Ruis both are so friendly and they provided us with great advices. I highly recommend this place.
Agréable appartement, confortable et bien agencé. Accueil très sympathique : Isabel et Ruis nous ont conseillé des balades aux alentours et nous ont offert une corbeille de fruits de Madère. Les températures à Calheta avoisinent les 20°C en février.
Isabel and her husband were excellent hosts and they did more that is expected from hosts which we appreciated a lot. We felt very welcome.
The apartment was very nice and just like on the pictures. Cozy, spacious and close to everything in Calheta.
We were very satisfied and would love to come back later :-)
very nice Loft, as you can see from the pictures. Its close to the beach, where you can walk by feet and the supermarket is also very near. Nice couple and clean rooms.
Calheta is on the sunnier side of Madeira, at least in winter, and was an enjoyable place to land for a few days. The loft space is open with high ceilings and felt quite comfortable. Shops and restaurants were both within walking distance. The garden behind the house was very nice. It was a bit chilly during our stay but with extra blankets we managed to keep most of the cold away. It seems to be the norm that air-conditioning and heating are typically not part of living spaces as they are mostly superfluous in Madeira's mild climate. A nice place to stay and Isabel and her husband were helpful in getting us clear information for our arrival.
We spent a good time in the apartment, really close to the beach, with full equipements. Isabel and her husband are receptives. Thank you !
Calheta is a nice city for visit all Madeira and particullary the west of the island.
De retour de Calheta, nous avons trouvé que le logement était idéalement situé : Calheta est très pratique pour visiter Madère et la maison est dans un quartier tranquille, à 2 mn de la plage et 5 du supermarché. Le loft est bien conforme aux photos. Equipé à neuf et très confortable, nous y avons passé une excellente semaine en famille. Les propriétaires nous ont accueilli de manière vraiment sympathique, avec des fruits de l'île. Nous recommandons vivement cette offre !
