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.

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.

Our stay at Villa Aveiro was as excellent as could be - in all respects!
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!
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
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.
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
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 ;-)
