With spectacular views stretching over the Atlantic Ocean, this traditional Madeiran villa sits near the agricultural village of Calheta. Surrounded by lush and hilly farmland, there's even a beloved beach on your doorstep. Alternatively, the UNESCO World Heritage Site of Laurisilva Forest awaits just a few kilometres away, as well as scenic mountainsides for hikers to trek across. With decorative tiling and vivid artwork, this characterful home is bursting with colour both inside and out. There's no denying that you'll be treated to a real taste of local life here, sitting among the sprawling gardens and a banana field. What better way is there to start each day than by swimming in your private pool and sunbathing on the patio? When you grow peckish, we imagine breakfast buffets laid atop the kitchen island, picnic lunches, and alfresco dinners at sunset as you sip on poncha. Split between two separate apartments, this sense of privacy may be perfect for friends and families who crave quiet time after their adventures.
