We love the sea and district vistas from this Madeiran home, situated in one of the hottest areas of the island. Relax on the private balcony with a glass of wine, or enjoy the views from the sofa in the living room – you can peer through the porthole in the wall to the ocean beyond. With its grey hues and potted plants, this open plan space is a great place to unwind. The main bedroom is a particular highlight with its seascape outlook and access to the balcony. This home is ideal for a couple, friends or a family. If you fancy feeling warm golden sand between your toes, then head to Calheta Beach, a ten-minute drive away, where you can also find bars, restaurants and a supermarket. Also, close by is Engenho da Calheta, one of the oldest sugar cane mills on the island. The facilities here were used to produce sugar cane brandy – head to the tasting room or wine bar here. If you want to explore the capital, Funchal city centre is around a forty-minute drive, where you’ll find Funchal Cathedral, tropical gardens, the pretty harbour and Madeira wine cellars.

About Calheta

That first glimpse of Calheta, presiding over Madeira's southern coastline, is an image that leaves you instantly hooked. The historic old town is a delight – there's the 15th-century parish church boasting ornate wooden ceilings, one of the island's two surviving sugar cane mills and Casa das Artes showcasing Portuguese modern art.
