Full description:

The proximity to the Atlantic Ocean in such a sunny and tranquil area of Madeira makes this traditional style home one of a kind.

Set on a fajã, just below Arco da Calheta, 5 minutes from the centre of Calheta, & 40 minutes from Funchal, this period property features five bedrooms, ample reception areas and exclusive access to the pebble beach and ocean below.

The surrounding banana plantations keep the property extremely private. It opens up to an ample entrance hall, added to the property in the 2000's, when it was refurbished. A new fitted kitchen and extra bathrooms were also added at that time. It is internally well-divided, something that is unusual in this type of period property.

On the ground floor, three distinct reception areas invite you to unwind from the bustle and hustle of modern life and relax. The sound of the pebble stones being dragged by the the waves mesmerize anyone who sits on the sofas with the open window.

At this level, there is a fully fitted bathroom, a guest WC and a pantry, taking advantage of the empty space underneath the staircase.

The top floor comprises the five bedrooms, four of them featuring ocean views, two fully fitted bathrooms, and the old kitchen area, which is not used anymore, just to access the bedrooms, despite still featuring the traditional bread oven and bread making tub.

The centennial part of the property is in stone: warmer in the winter, cooler when it gets hot outside. The top floor has high ceilings and solid wooden 'casquinha' floors.

There is space to build a swimming pool and create gardens to the west of the house in what is currently a banana plantation. The property features a barbecue and a private carport near the access road. A footpath gives pedestrian access to the property.

Please note that in Madeira it is not allowed anymore to build this close to the ocean. These types of seafront properties are not easy to find, especially on generously sized flat plots.

This charming property is perfect as a holiday home and would also be a gem in the short-term holiday market representing an excellent investment. Similar properties in the surrounding area have a good return on investment as holiday rentals, achieving year-round occupancy.

About ImoPalheiro Lda, Palheiro Estate, Madeira

The Palheiro Estate

Located on a prime hilltop site overlooking the sophisticated capital of Funchal, the 130 hectare Palheiro Estate, has grown from an early 19th century hunting lodge and summer retreat for nobility into a sophisticated, low density resort destination.

Palheiro benefits from an unrivalled location, on the one hand its elevated position gives stunning views over the city and harbour, yet it is only ten minutes by car to the city centre, with its elegant mix of historic buildings and modern shopping. On the other hand, it is only fifteen minutes to the international airport, with direct flights to over 40 European destinations.


Madeira is a small island (50 km long) located 900 km. south-west of Portugal and 600 km. off the North African coast.

For over 200 years, Europe's elite have been drawn to the archipelago of Madeira, enjoying the reliable, year-round fine weather and dramatically beautiful landscapes. The waters surrounding the island are warm and the winding coastline provides many opportunities to enjoy them. Savvy second home purchasers are aware that Madeira, which can be easily reached in around three hours via direct flights from the UK, Ireland and mainland Europe, is an ideal alternative to long haul destinations for sun seekers, offering year round rental opportunity as well as a superb second home location.
