Around the villa 17° West.....
5 minutes from the house you can drive to the nice Marina and the beach, restaurants and the supermarket pingo doce.
Park outside the supermarket from 19:00 h free. You can buy fresh bread,
good vegetables and fruits, fresh fish, good coffee etc.
Farmers Market in Prazeres Sunday around 10:00 h, 5 min from the Villa
Buy fresh vegetables and exotic fruits directly from the famers.
After the market go to Quinta Pedagogica an exotic garden near the church
with the best coffee and fresh bread to buy...lovely place a paradise
Bars, restaurants we like....
On the small hill right side of the house you find a new modern coffee/sandwich bar - nice people and good snacks.
Opposite from entrance "Quinta das Vinhas" small shop
In the morning you can buy fresh bread and always vegetables, eggs drink
a coffee and enjoy the village atmosphere. Go to the Quinta das Vinhas below the house and have a look. A great place to relax and for making pictures.
O Portinho and Joes Bar in Jardim do Mar....
Directly on the promenade you find "O Porthino" we love the small coffee/snack bar 4 m from the sea. Joes Bar is in the center of Jardim do Mar. Good Bar/Restaurant in the nice old village.
Calheta Beach Restaurant in the Marina in front of Pingo Doce
Try "Lulas Grelhadas" or Tuna Steaks very good restaurant and moderate prices for really good food. The Lounge area with view to the beach is nice....relaxed atmosphere.
From Prazeres to Porto Moniz, Sao Vincente, the Surfer Beaches
Go to the North and follow in Prazeres the signs to Rabacal if you want to walk the nice Levada in Rabacal. After the levada you could go directly from this mountain to the open pools in Porto Moniz and Sao Vincente or the Surfer Beach. In Sao Vincente drive down to the great lava beach with waterfall - scenery like Hawaii great place. Opposite of the lava beach try one of the best small bars in the rocks "Club Naval" with super friendly staff. Kids from guests can borrow a canoe and can drive through the stone rocks. Fantastic for a trip.
See my pictures from the bar and scenery.
Levadas near the Villa
I like the Levada in Prazeres especially for starter...and or with children.
check on with pictures or see my pictures with flowers on this pages. You can go in Prazeres the way back to Calheta or the left side a bit through the wood later you cross as well the village. Both sides are very interesting. You will see all kind of flowers, animals, water, fruit trees etc.
Levada in Jardim to Mar, 5 minutes by car
You can also walk in Jardim do Mar a Levada walk. Pls check, more difficult!!!
I love the sea...
My heart belongs to the sea - this year we had a chance to dive with a big group of dolphins not far away from Calheta Beach in the Atlantic Ocean. When you see only the deep blue Atlantic around you below you, hear the "clicks" from the dolphin family with babies see a whale is coming nearer from a distance you know how great our earth is. If you go out for snorkeling, diving, fishing, Levada walks you always feel something special.
Information before you travel.....
-I suggest the famous Madeira Levada App:
"Levada Walker" from the University/Madeira developed this app with great
-You tube and give in "Ivan Hamitov Madeira" great Madeira pictures from
Funchal, Cabo Girao, Waterfall in the North, Fireworks all made with his
professional drone, best films, best cuts about Madeira
I will be the best host for you:
After my travels to the smallest islands like Pitcairn Island or Easter Island i.e. I only made the best experience with my hosts in the smallest hut on the beach, the small hotel or a villa - decided after only best experiences to be a good host and make my guests happy. Traveling is one of the most important things to understand the world a little bit, meet new people with totally different backgrounds, cultures.....If we are not on Madeira Jorge our friend and housekeeper will welcome you! We great you with flowers, prepare the villa - even if you arrive later, inform you what to do and will present you a bottle of the fine Madeira Vine. You only call Jorge when you leave the airport and he or his wife will wait for you in the Villa. It is like coming home....enjoy the great island, trips, clean air and water and the happy and nice people.
Before you start:
-I send all guests a photo documentation to find us quickly in Calheta.
-You also receive an email with restaurant infos, what to see etc.
