Another bedroom has a double bed and enjoys both sea and hillside views. The two remaining bedrooms both feature two single beds each. Also on this floor is where you’ll find the lovely family bathroom.

The terrace that surrounds the villa is extensive and features several different areas. Wherever you decide to relax, socialise or dine, the sea views are breathtaking and you feel as if you’re right above the water. Dotted around the terrace are charming seating and dining areas. The large, private infinity pool offers the very best views over the sea. It’s surrounded by an area with sun loungers, which you can relax on as you watch boats sail by.

Villa Petrel is ideally located for evening meals out in particular; with a restaurant just a few minutes’ walk away. There’s also another restaurant, a bakery and a couple of cafés within a 10-minute walk or five-minute drive. Head down to the waterfront and marina and Calheta and you’ll find an even greater choice of places to enjoy drinks and meals. You can stroll right down to this area in around 30 minutes if you’re feeling active!

Reward yourself with a leisurely afternoon spent on the sandy beach. It’s one of the few of its kind in Madeira, as the island’s beaches are naturally volcanic. The sand was brought in from Morocco, with Calheta being the first town to get a golden, sandy stretch to enjoy. It’s not just swimming that the sea is ideal for, you can also try a range of watersports. Popular activities include windsurfing, canoeing, waterskiing and scuba diving.

Also close to the marina is the clifftop museum, Casa das Mudas, which showcases great Portuguese contemporary art. Another place that’s well worth visiting is Engenho da Calheta, a working sugar cane factory. Here you can see how Maderia rum is made and even try a few drinks yourself. Another popular thing to do in Calheta is to hike through the lush hills, following trails to beautiful waterfalls and areas of stunning natural beauty. These trails and Levadas a few kilometres away and up the mountains and behind Calheta.

Just a 40-minute drive away is the city of Funchal, Madeira’s capital. Here you can ride the cable car up a mountain and stroll around beautiful botanical gardens. There’s also an old town area that history lovers in particular will enjoy exploring.

  • Strongly suggested

    Posted by Jonathan on 03/07/2018

    A beautiful villa that is fully equipped in a quiet area. The infinity pool merges into the ocean and enhances the view. An exotic stay! Especially when we visit the surrounding corners!

  • Lovely house with stunning views

    Posted by Dorothy on 26/05/2018

    We had a wonderful relaxing stay at Villa Petrel. The house is high up on the hill, with views of the sea, and the terrace gets sun all day. The house is well equipped, comfortable and beautifully clean. Calheta is a short drive away, with a supermarket and restaurants. Thank you so much, we really enjoyed our stay.
