The villa's well-equipped kitchen is a true joy to cook in, with ample food preparation space and a wide range of high-quality appliances, cookware and utensils. The whole property is effortlessly chic from top to bottom, with dark wood kitchen units and gleaming black countertops, and a stylishly decorative chrome bannister to the staircase that ascends the first floor - all of this decadence is beautifully offset by the huge floor-to-ceiling windows throughout, that flood the villa with natural light as well as showcasing those incredible ocean views.

Villa Massapez has three bedrooms, two doubles and a twin room, and each is just as tastefully decorated and furnished as the common areas. All bedrooms are ensuite, making it extra convenient if you have two or more separate family groups staying together, and all comfortable feature beds, stylish furniture and breathtaking views. From your room, you'll be able to step out onto your furnished private balcony - the ideal spot to enjoy a morning cuppa or an evening pre-dinner drink as you look out over the ocean.

The villa's exterior won't disappoint, with a large private pool which is easily accessible by steps and a selection of quality sun loungers on which to sunbathe or enjoy a good book - if you can tear your eyes away from the view, of course! Villa Massapez features a luxurious outdoor dining area with a built-in barbecue, perfect for alfresco meals. Cosy yet open to the surroundings, this fully-furnished area is sure to be the place you all retire to in the evenings to enjoy a glass of local wine and each other's company as you watch the sunset over the Atlantic.

Villa Massapez is located just outside of the small town of Lombada dos Marinheiros, an area of Calheta well known for its beautiful walking and hiking routes. You’ll also find a small supermarket and bar here. Calheta’s famous harbour promenade and all it has to offer in the way of restaurants, attractions and shopping opportunities is just a few minutes away and is sure to be where you’ll spend much of your time when you’re out of the villa. This historic and beautiful town is a hotspot for those who love all manner of outdoor pursuits, including hiking, biking, surfing, kayaking, windsurfing, scuba diving and paragliding, and you’ll find lots of companies in the local area offering courses and equipment hire. Calheta is also one of the most fantastic spots on the island for whale and dolphin-spotting, and you’ll find plenty of places offering whale-watching tours, fishing tours and boat trips along the marina.

Madeira is home to some beautiful beaches, and although most of them are pebbled or rocky, Calheta beach is the first imported sandy beach on the island. Located on the south coast, visitors here can enjoy the sunniest parts of the island, and the soft golden sands offer the perfect place to relax. The beach is split into two areas, with walls protecting the swimming area from high waves and strong currents, making it a safe place to enjoy the ocean with the children. Calheta beach has all the ingredients you need for spending a memorable day, with public showers and toilets for your convenience, a nearby supermarket, and restaurants and bars just a short walk up the promenade, including a fantastic beachside cafe that serves fruit platters and great coffee at very reasonable prices. The cafe plays music during the day and even has WiFi that reaches down to the beach, so be sure to get the password when you’re in there buying refreshments!  

Lovers of art and history will find plenty to enjoy in Calheta, too, including the town’s Mudas Museum, situated in a stunning cliff-top location. Here you’ll find a collection of contemporary Portuguese art dating from the 1960s to the present, although it’s worth knowing before you make the trip that the museum is only open Tuesday to Sunday.

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.


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!

Best Suited For: All Ages
Ideal for Kids Ideal for Teens

This stylish and spacious family accommodation is a lovely choice for those with children. The addition of a twin room is ideal for couples with older children or teens, and kids within larger families might even enjoy sharing a ‘big bed’ as part of their holiday adventure. Having separately adjustable air conditioning in each room is a plus for those with kids and will stop arguments about whether it’s too hot or too cold! - and a flatscreen TV in the living area is sure to be a plus when it comes to entertaining them while you make breakfast or plan the day ahead.

The villa’s private pool is not fenced off, so little ones will need to be well-supervised; however, it is easily accessible by steps and features an integrated chill-out area that the children are sure to find fun - it can also be heated for an extra charge.

Lombada dos Marinheiros is well-known for being the starting point for a lot of the region’s famous hiking trails, so families who love the outdoors have a lot of options for nature walks, rambling and cycling. The surrounding area is beautiful, and young photographers and artists will find plenty to inspire their talents, so make sure they bring their cameras or paints.

If the children have the energy to burn, we suggest heading to nearby Calheta, where you’ll find a range of watersports and activities to enjoy, as well as courses in scuba diving and snorkelling available. Whale-watching tours are popular here, so for the chance to do something unique with the children during your holiday, it’s well worth heading to the marina and seeing what boat trips are available.  

Younger children will enjoy spending time at Calheta’s famous playground situated right on the beach and featuring a pirate ship climbing frame and swings and bouncers for younger children before heading off for a day playing on the golden sands. The beach at Calheta is one of few on the island that isn’t a pebble, and this large, beautiful, man-made beach can get fairly crowded in the summer months, largely down to its soft sands and easy accessibility. The kids will enjoy the family-friendly vibe here and the fact that they can paddle and swim in safety thanks to the barrier that creates an enclosed swimming area and prevents the larger waves from spoiling the fun! There are some great amenities available, including ample parking, parasol hire, grocery stores and a fantastic beachside cafe that serves fruit platters and great coffee at very reasonable prices. The cafe plays music during the day and even has WiFi that reaches down to the beach, so be sure to get the password when you’re in there buying refreshments!
