Romantic Casa Do Cais in Calheta on the south coast of Madeira
The self catering apartment Casa do Cais is located in one of the last remaining fishing villages, Paul do Mar. The Atlantic Ocean is literally two metres from the front door. The local harbour and beach is only one hundred yards walk along the sea wall. For the budget traveller is the perfect hideaway location for the surfing, body boarding, fishing, walking, and photography or sea side enthusiast. In this house, on the magnificent roof terrace, overlooking the ocean and the harbour you forget about the world . You do not see or hear anyone or anything except the sound of the sea. There is a local supermarket, baker, a hairdresser and bank within 100 metres walk. Paul do Mar is really a traditional fishing village and life continues as it has done for many hundreds of years. This means that you could wake up to find a large pile of freshly caught, tuna fish lying outside your neighbour's front door! Well, he is one of the local fishermen after all.
