Surrounded by luscious landscapes and that breathtaking ocean view – this spot dits perched in the sun-drenched hills above Calheta. Once an old barn, the newly transformed villa offers modern styles to an infrastructure packed with original character. Make the most of the sunshine with the indoor-outdoor living space that extends the open-concept living room and kitchen onto the large wrap-around terrace. Out here, you're given free rein to gaze at the dreamy vistas until you reach a meditative state at any minute of the day. Alternatively, you could go for a swim or rustle up something to eat on the barbecue – evening meals and drinks out here in front of the setting sun couldn't be more blissful. A nature lover's dream, there are many hiking trails around Calheta and easy access to the plateau of Paul da Serra, featuring levada walks and spectacular hidden landscapes. Making this spot – perfect for those looking to embrace the art of relaxation and reconnect with nature in the beautiful Madeira countryside.
