Casa Xavier is a pretty 3 bedroom and 4 bathroom coastal villa located in the sunny area of Calheta in Madeira close to its sister villas (Casa Tiago and Villa Torres). Casa Xavier has been beautifully converted from a farmer’s barn into a delightful villa with breathtaking views and a heated pool (€) that reaches into the living room area, giving a unique look for the villa.
The living area is airy and has full length sliding windowpanes that provide direct access to the pool and those breathtaking sea-views of the Atlantic Ocean. This room is leads to the spacious fully equipped kitchen with a decent open barbecue area.
All bedrooms are on the first floor and have en-suite shower rooms.
- Due to the narrowness of the track that leads down to these idyllic villas (Casa Tiago, Casa Xavier and Villa Torres), smaller cars are recommended.
Bedroom 1 Double bed, French doors to the balcony and air conditioning.
Bedroom 2 Beds can be made up as one double bed or two singles beds, French doors to the balcony and air conditioning.

The villa has a fantastic lookout point at the edge of the pool terrace. Perfect to appreciate those views during the afternoon cocktail hours!
There is a deserted pebble beach approximately 30 metres below the street level, reached via a rough track. Although public, the difficult access makes it so private and non-touristic. A lovely little beach hut is located right on the beach and shared by, the three villas (Casa Tiago and Villa Torres).
A front terrace with sunbeds, outdoor shower and built-in barbecue and large table (seating for 16), is complemented with a kitchen (fridge, 4-ring hob) and toilet.

Good to know
A few minutes by car will take you to the resort town of Calheta, which, with its man-made golden beaches, is popular with tourists and locals alike. There is a beautiful marina and a good choice of bars and restaurants. There are a handful of boutique shops and a good supermarket.
Calheta is famous for producing the best white rum ‘Aguardente’, a special ingredient of the typical Madeiran drink ‘Poncha’. If you are interested in knowing how the white rum is made, we recommend a tour of the ‘Engenho da Calheta’ the rum distillery where you can wander around and sample the produce.
Centro das Artes Casa da Mudas is a new centre located at the edge of a cliff overlooking the sea and was built to host superb art exhibitions, musical performances and other events. Madeira is a paradise for those who enjoy walking and hiking, and Arco da Calheta is ideally situated, having easy access to the road network and most places on the island.
Within 15 minutes drive are the beaches at Ponta do Sol and Ribeira Brava, the esplanades at the surfing paradises of Jardim do Mar and Paul do Mar, the laurisilva forest of Madeira (a UNESCO world heritage site – http://whc.unesco.org/en/list/934) and the many walks in Paul da Serra (1500 meters).
It’s an easy 30 minute drive to Funchal, the capital.
