This holiday rental villa is the most special place you can find on self catering... Being in family hands for decades, it was carefully restored to offer the best feeling of the local traditional life.
Casa dos Loureiros is located in Arco da Calheta, above the Calheta´s village, very close to Calheta´s sandy beach. It used to be a family house, where the owner´s aunts lived for the last 50 years. They were dedicated to agriculture, and all the land was well know as growing sweet potatoes. Now, trying to keep it in the family, the owners restored two houses and transformed them in a modern way, but trying to keep the old signs of the traditional life.
So you have a 3 bedroom house, Loureiros Cottage and a beautiful cozy studio, called Cica´s Studio. If you book both houses,a group up to 8 persons can stay here and you will have all the place just for yourselves.
'CICAS STUDIO' is an open plan detached house,around 50sqm, with living area and bedroom area, a separated bathroom and a kitchenette.
Totally and modern equipped, it offers everything you may need during your stay. Keeping the old track of the traditional houses, the ceiling is very high, and offers three doors connecting directly to the outside areas, bringing all the light and brightness inside. The view from any of these doors, is absolutely awesome....breathtaking sea view...!!!
In the kitchen area, the stone oven that used to be to make the daily bread, was left as it was at the old times...
Most of the traditional houses in MAdeira, had an oven like this one...now, its only part of the History of the house..
Right in front of the house, you can find a fantastic area, with a traditional bench, where old ladies used to sit talking about everyone lives, while watching the fabulous sunset...This patio leads you to the rest of the surrounding areas, provided with outside furniture for you to enjoy the sun, meals all fresco, or just taking a knap. The barbecue is great and will offer you a tasty meal after a deep swim in Calheta´s beach.
'LOUREIROS COTTAGE', located a little above, is a bigger house, with 3 bedrooms, leaving room sharing the area with the kitchen and a bathroom. It was totally renewed but also keeping the old signs of life in another times... Here you can find all the comfort you expect, as modern equippements make part of it. The bedrooms are not big, as there was a deep care to make everything as it was originally. Outside, in front of the house, again an old bench for the Ladies to sit talking and enjoying the fantastic views. This was a detail all the traditional houses in MAdeira used to have...
Barbecue- it is located in a very big terrace, enjoying a fantastic view over the Atlantic., 180º... preparing your meals

Sun sets - it is almost impossible to describe the beauty, calm and peace you get in Loureiros House during the sun set... absolutely awsome...!!! Enjoying an open view over the Atlantic, and totally quietness, you will be spechless with this dream vision, difficult to imagine, it only exists in Loureiros House...
