Casa Espetada sits high above the pleasant village of Arco da Calheta and boasts views of the glorious green hills and the horizon. Enjoy the beautiful island of Madeira from this idyllic location in the hills. From here, you’ll be able to see the blue sky meet the horizon.
Outside, the home has a private swimming pool with sun loungers that allow you to feel the full rays of the beautiful sunshine. The outdoor area also contains a quaint seating area where you can enjoy a morning coffee, evening cocktail or dining al fresco with friends. After a pleasant nights sleep, make your way to the poolside and indulge in the glistening pool for a swim while looking out onto a phenomenal view of the horizon. While enjoying the sun, you can make the most out of the built-in barbecue and seating area for get-togethers and casual evening dinners.
The living area is a bright and cosy room where guests can indulge in unwinding after long days out in the sun. The room boasts an attractive glass fireplace and bright wall art with a sink in L-shaped sofa and flat screen television. Here, guests can relax while having a wonderful night in.
The kitchen contains a charming dining area where you can enjoy entertaining family & friends over dinner. The area also holds an island with bar stools, which is great for socialising as you prepare food.
The air conditioned bedrooms benefit from colourful bedding and windows with great views that reveal the beauty of the local area. They are also tastefully decorated with stylish furniture with everything you need for a comfortable stay.
While staying at Casa Espetada, you will be delighted to discover that the Restaurant Miradouro is within walking distance, but be prepared to tackle the 400 metre ascent up a hill! The friendly local venue serves a beautiful range of dishes including meat skewers, grilled chicken and passion fruit pudding. The portions are generous here – so expect to take a goodie bag home!
Madeira Beach Marina is a 5-minute drive away from the villa and is an excellent spot to admire the range of boats that frequent the island from. Come here for some quiet contemplation.
The little village of Arco Da Calheta lies only 3 Km away from Casa Espetada. Founded in 1572, the village is an idyllic location for some inspiring nature hikes with it being situated in between breathtaking mountains and below epic surrounding hills.
While in this charming village, head down the island’s only tiki bar, Pukiki. The bar was created to emphasize the history between Madeira and Hawaii. Madeira used to be widely referred to as the Hawaii of Europe as many people from the island sailed to Hawaii to find work in the sugar cane industry during the 1800s. With the largest selection of rum on the island, the cocktails at Pukiki are a delight and a must try. The locally run bar is also a stellar location to watch the sunset from and all of the rum-based drinks are created from sugar cane.
