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.
They have access to the appartment and to the car parking.
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.
We had a very good time in the loft of Isabel. We were very friendly welcomed by Rui. The location is great, very quiet and close to the beach. Rui and Isabel were very helpful and fast to answer to any of our request. We definetly recommend the place for families or small groups of 4 people.
We stated here at the beginning of our trip. Nice place, really clean, very convenient and good location to explore the west part of the island.
The loft is perfect for 2 people, equipment includes all the minimum needed. 5 minutes from the supermarket, 2 min from the beach.
We recommend warmly!
We stay a week in Isabel's apartment and enjoyed our time in Calheta. Isabel is very nice and helpful! The flat is spacious, clean and has all basic items that you will need during our stay. Parking is possible on the property and the beach is in a 2 min walking distance.
Be aware that not all apartments might have a sea view. In summary we had a good time and I can recommend it!
The flat was absolutely lovely - clean, bright and spacious and in a good location. We really enjoyed our 2 days there.
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 :-)
