Calheta, Madeira
3 km

Perfectly located amidst banana trees, close to the sunny resort of Calheta, with superb panoramic views of  the sea, The Designhouse is a fabulous contemporary villa beautifully designed by a British architect as the  perfect holiday home. Thought has been put into every detail, making this the perfect option for a great  family holiday, or for a get away break for one or more couples. 

To benefit from the views and tranquillity,  Designhouse has an upside down layout. From the driveway,  the main entrance opens to a hall with stairs leading down to the bedroom floor and then to the living area  and sun terrace with heated infinity pool. 

The Cubist architecture of the villa is complemented by a Le Corbusier chaise longue and glass table and  chairs,  lamps in the living area. Spacious and fully open plan, the uninterrupted panoramic floor to ceiling sliding picture windows display the wonderful views over  the banana treetops to the sea. 

The contemporary feel continues into the red themed fully equipped kitchen with central island, off of which is the laundry. 

Both lead to the wonderful southern exposure sun terrace, which runs the whole length of the villa and  features a beautiful heated 10m long infinity pool with waterfall. To take full advantage of outdoor living, a  large comfortable sofa and outdoor dining table sits under a covered area for provides greater comfort in  hot sunny days and balmy evenings. 

The Master bedroom with double bed, en-suite shower room is on the first floor, features panoramic sea views when lying on the bed, and leads to both a private balcony and the shared balcony. The second bedroom also features a double bed from which you can contemplate the ocean, and leads to the shared  balcony. The third bedroom has two single beds and also leads to the shared balcony. A study with desk, and  its own private balcony, for those that wish to ally business with pleasure, can be used to place up two extra  beds. 

The Designhouse offers the best of all worlds; although it is located in a tranquil position on a street with no  exit, it is also only 3 Km from the village resort of Calheta with all its facilities, and only 1 Km away from the  expressway that takes you all over the island. Funchal is only 30 minutes away and the airport a further 10  minutes drive.
