edit_location Location - Area

Calheta is fast becoming one of the most popular towns on the South coast. It has the most interesting marina which is full of privately owned boats and yachts. Many of these offer trips out for dolphin and whale spotting, trips to the Desertas Islands, deep sea fishing and lots more. Along the side of the marina are many snack bars and restaurants where the atmosphere is electric and you mingle with the locals and tourists alike. In the evenings even live entertainment can be enjoyed. Just five minutes walk away is a protected golden sandy beach which runs very gradually into the warm blue waters of the Atlantic Ocean and ideal place for young children to dig on the beach and paddle or swim in the water. Many locals swim from one part of the beach to the other for fitness as well as enjoyment. There is a large well stocked supermarket which serves all the needs of the self catering client and a bank with instant access machines.

A little corner of Paradise.....

We spent a wonderful week at Calheta Plaza in November 2009, and as the previous reviewer commented, it was the most stylish and comfortable holiday accommodation we have ever had. The large, airy flat was luxuriously appointed and spotlessly clean, and the view from the balcony breathtaking and fascinating. The situation half-way up a steep mountainside is somewhat challenging, especially since one of the tunnels between Funchal and Calheta was closed at the time of our visit, entailing a diversion over a rather hair-raising mountain pass. This made us feel a little cut-off as my husband was not inclined to make this journey by car too often, but once we were established in our retreat halfway between the hillside village of Estrela and the beach and marina at Calheta, we had no great desire to travel further afield.
The baker's shop just across the road was wonderful for fresh, fragrant rolls for breakfast, and the occasional pastry treat ! The restaurant half-way down the hill, whose name escapes me,, had a really charming atmosphere, and there was also a selection of cafe-type restaurants at the marina.with some musical entertainment in the evenings.Pingo Doce supermarket at Calheta was well-stocked and priced and you could park free there for an hour if you asked for a ticket at check-out Parking at the beach was metered in the day-time, though.
Our weather was somewhat mixed, as we had to expect in November, so we sat on the beach only once and did not use the pool at all, except to catch the last rays of the sun when it had left the balcony on the nicer late afternoons.
Minor improvements we might suggest that could have made the apartment even more fabulous: a coffee-maker, an oven glove, some shelving in the bathroooms, particularly inside the shower. Also, while we realise that low lighting is ecologically desirable we found the living room lights a little dim for reading, and would have appreciated a standard or table lamp close to the sofas ! And there were only two rather rickety loungers by the pool. ! But these are all trifling matters compared to the enormous pleasure we derived from our week at Calheta Plaza.. We would certainly recommend the accommodation to friends and hope to return some day. Many thanks, Victoria.

Owner's Response: Thank you for your feedback. There is now a coffee maker and oven gloves have been provided. There is also now additonal shelving in the shower room and a reading light has been added to the living room. The loungers will hopefully be replaced before the summer, if not we will arrange for these to be available in the apartment for guests to use. It is a shame that the road was closed. It looks like this was to carry out works to create a new tunnel which will ultimately make the journey to the west of the island quicker. I am sorry that this caused some inconvenience. The road is now open again.

Stunning apartment by the sea

I agree with the previous guests that this is the nicest apartment we have ever stayed in. Everything was clean upon our arrival. We arrived in the dark and were stunned to see the spectacular sea view when we woke the following morning. It was so difficult to leave.

At breakfast time each morning (which we ate on the balcony) we were treated to a flying display from the mountain swifts and the odd bird of prey. They were so close it felt that you could almost touch them.

We had a fantastic holiday in this well appointed apartment. The owner has provided a comfortable environment with every thing required for a relaxing holiday. For those who like cooking the kitchen contained everything you need to cook fabulous meals. Usually when we go on holiday we end up packing sharp knives, bottle openers and other items vital for cooking. Victoria has thought of everything. Even a knife sharpener was supplied.

Not keen on cooking! no problem. The local restaurants were very welcoming. We especially enjoyed the restaurants down at the marina which produced good quality food at an excellent price.

The swimming pool provided relief after a day’s site seeing and walking. Even though this is a shared facility I think we were the only people using at the time.

I would certainly recommend this apartment. I intend to stay again when I next visit Madeira
