Overview

Pool Villa/House Quirky Modern All Bedrooms En-Suite

Villa Aveiro is a stunning holiday home that sits at the foot of a cliff, nestled in the beautiful Madeiran countryside that has its own banana plantation as well as outstanding panoramic views. The home is a converted farmers barn with glorious views over the beach and horizon. Villa Aveiro lies close to its two sister villas in the picturesque area of Calheta.

With a backdrop of dramatic green hills, the villa provides awe-inspiring views to wake up to daily. In the garden, the sparkling pool lies in between radiant flowers and exotic banana and mango trees. There are also small seating areas and sun loungers placed poolside, a wonderful place for guests to enjoy al fresco dining under the dazzling daytime sun and starry night sky.

The open plan living and dining room benefit from splashes of vivid colour and prints as well as bursts of natural light from the floor length doors leading poolside. The charming room sees a rustic brick wall gorgeously complemented by a bright orange wall right beside it and cosy sofa chairs placed in the centre.

All of the bedrooms are situated on the first floor and come equipped with en-suite shower rooms, striking prints and natural light. A balcony is accessible from the master suite and allows guests to look over the pool and the wonderful horizon while enjoying a sip of morning coffee.

The home provides a blissfully peaceful holiday location. The breath-taking nature that encircles Villa Aveiro is enough to make your holiday an exceptional experience.

While staying at Villa Aveiro, the Art Gallery of Prazeres is a must visit for art lovers. The local gallery only opens at weekends and is a fantastic cultural hub celebrating the island of Madeira.

The art gallery focuses on displaying unique and dynamic works and producing cultural events that represent the island. The venue showcases art from local, national and international artists and aims to contribute to the local Madeiran community.

Calheta Beach is a man-made beach created in 2004. The beach is in a quieter area where locals and tourists both sunbathe. The calming atmosphere is complemented by the many surrounding restaurants and bars where you can indulge in some traditional island cuisine.

Madalena do Mar is the nearest village and lies along the coastline. With stunning views over the sea and the cliffs, the fishing village consists of magnificent hills flourishing with trees, plants and flowers. The area is also known for having the largest banana plantations on the island. The village was named Madalena do Mar from a 15th century Polish prince called Henry Allemão who was given the land after losing a battle.

The village provides an idyllic setting to indulge in a nature walk, taking in the beauty of your surroundings.

THE REGION

Calheta, meaning ‘Small Cove’, is where many tourists flock to in order to indulge in beautiful man-made beaches and striking scenery.

This part of Madeira is formed of several municipalities, each with something unique and special to offer. Calheta Village is an ideal place to start especially if you enjoy a stiff drink! An old sugar cane factory still produces one of the world’s most respected white rums – Aguardente…perhaps you want to leave this part of your holiday till late in the evening!

Jardim do Mar is where you will find many of the locals on dawn patrol, taking to the waves and surfing. The waters can both be heavy and flat, making them ideal for abilities of surfer. Akaw!
 
For lovers of seafood, you should look no further than Paul do Mar. This is a village where most of the fisherman work out of, so you know you’ll be able to find the catch of the day here.

For those who have travelled to Madeira for its inland beauty, then look no further than Arco da Calheta and Prazeres. Within these locations you won’t only be able find some stunning hiking trails, but you’re also likely to stumble across some traditionally styled Parishes and unforgettable views.

ABOUT MADEIRA

The island of Madeira can be found south west of mainland Portugal, in the middle of the Atlantic Ocean. Due to the island’s location, its is considered to have a Mediterranean climate that serves locals and visitors all year round – making it an ideal escape from reality at any point in the year.

What we love Madeira for is its seemingly ongoing festivals! Madeirans have found an excuse to celebrate most things; including film, their natural surroundings and key patron saints. This means that planning a visit during these days and even weeks of commemoration is well worth it (scroll down to see some key dates).

Madeira is divided into several municipals, each with a special offering to those who visit this island. Our favourite two communities are Funchal and Calheta and these are where you will find most of our beautiful villas.

Madeira’s landscape extends much more than a striking coastline. Make sure you pack some hiking boots and venture inland during your stay. With mountainous trails along Vereda do Arieiro, or more countryside appropriate paths like Levada do Risco and waterfall chasing treks like Levada do Caldeirao Verde – this archipelago has everything a keen outdoors person requires.

For those who enjoy either playing or watching sports, you’ll be happy to know Madeira offers so much selection. Madeira is also home to three notable football clubs, so if you’re visiting during the football season and want to see a good quality of football, you have every chance to. Porto Santo Golfe is the island’s renowned golf course. With an 18-hole course (Par 72) overlooking a Galapagos-like backdrop, golf enthusiasts will certainly want a ‘slice’ of the action! Surfers can access some great beaches like Jardim do Mar, Ponta Pequena, Paul do Mar, and Fajã da Ovelha in order to find some swell. Or, if you’re simply looking to recline on a sun lounger and soak up some rays, whilst listening to crystal clear waves break as they hit the shores, you will find plenty of man-made beaches & Lidos created for your leisure!

With a superb climate, close proximity to the coastline, wonderful cuisine, charming locals and astonishing scenery – this is a fabulous holiday choice for families & friends.

But while you're enjoying one of our fantastic villas in Madeira, you may well want to take some time out from all that sun worship to explore everything else the region has to offer – so we've put together this handy travel guide to give you a little help and inspiration!

The Ponta do Pargo Lighthouse Museum in Calheta is an exciting and educational experience for kids. Through exhibitions, the lighthouse’s history is displayed as well as various stones from Madeira's lighthouses.

The lighthouse is one of Calheta’s key attractions so paying it a visit is a great way to learn more about the area. The museum is located 300 metres above sea level on top of a cliff and boasts phenomenal views.

Reviews

  • Our stay at Villa Aveiro was as excellent as could be - in all respects!

    on 08/04/2019

    We arrived with a 10 hours delay at midnight - but the welcome was fantastic! Mr. Bruno was very kind - a cool sparkling wine was waiting for us in the fridge (and some toast, marmelade and coffee for a first breakfast - so we needn't leave the house very early the next morning). The pool was pre-heated so we could take a first dive before breakfast. The views from the terrace and the bedrooms are fantastic - we had a few wonderful sunfalls. We used the indoor-barbecue regularly for fish and other seafood bought in the local (and very well assorted) supermarket in Caleta. The whole area is very calm and quiet. As we had to change our rent-a-car the guy in charge asked why we needed a car - since we were residing in paradise. He was perfectly right!! If you want to spend unforgettable holidays on this beautiful island (with or without children), this is the place to be!

  • Breathtaking!!!!

    on 15/10/2018

    We have just returned from an amazing holiday at Villa Aveiro. The pictures of the villa found on the website do not do it justice…it is even better than it looks. People go on about the road down, yes it's daunting at first, but you soon get used to it, and what's waiting for you at the bottom is well worth the ride down. The villa is superb, the pool amazing and the views spectacular. The kitchen is well stocked with equipment and on arrival the owner supplies some basic rations and a bottle of wine…..much appreciated. Also offered is a complimentary meal at the owners seafood restaurant in Camara de Lobos, which is fabulous. At night, sitting out at the "Lookout" with a bottle of wine watching the sunset is surreal….and actually where I proposed to my girlfriend (she said yes). All in all, a fantastic place that we will definitely return to!

    Top-Tip: Get a hire car!

  • Amazing place stunning

    on 03/09/2018

    What an amazing place for a holiday, absolutely stunning - so beautiful surroundings and decor. The only down side was the very steep and scary access road.

  • Wonderful stay

    on 07/08/2018

    Beautiful place to stay with very nice pool with view on the ocean! Very quite with bananas and mangos in the garden. One small remark, bed in one room is not good. The road to the house is very steep and you need to be an experienced driver but it is worth doing it!

  • Very nice accommodation with great pool and view

    on 13/06/2018

    This house/accommodation is very very nice and extremely well suited for a family with kids enjoying a great swimming pool that can be heated up to 28 degrees. The only thing that was a bit too entertaining was the very steep and narrow road down to the house ;-)
