About this nature house

This naturehouse is a group of 8 typical self-catering cottages in Arco da Calheta, Madeira Islands, with breath-taking panoramic views over the Atlantic Ocean. It is a simple and genuine haven for those looking for calm, rest and a real example of Madeira Island’s lifestyle. The rustic cottages, which have been carefully and eco-friendly restored, suit the natural environment. Every space of this little paradise is framed by the lovely ocean view and by the energy of the stones. It is familiar, romantic, cosy and peaceful! You can feel the smell of the gardens, relax in the swimming pool, enjoy wonderful sunsets, discover our agricultural land with fruit trees, vegetables and aromatic herbs. Since our family started restoring the traditional houses in Arco da Calheta, one of our main goals is to respect the existing natural landscape. All additions and modifications are carried out with the minimum impact in order to build a harmonious place with a proper integration into nature.

Nature and surroundings

We try to balance the built area with as many green areas as possible and we keep these spaces colourful with local flowers and indigenous plants. As we are lucky to have some natural springs in our gardens, all the water is collected and accumulated on a well. Al the orchards and gardens are irrigated with this resource, so we don’t have to waste potable water. Apart from being an ecological measure, the well is also the natural habitat for singing frogs and different quiet fish species. Calhau Grande has a wonderful solar exposure and the temperature is always mild. For this reason, we give preference to ample glass walls, providing natural light and warm temperatures as well as good views over the Atlantic Ocean to all cottages. As they are also origin built with basaltic stone, their interiors are correctly insulated from climatic changes, so there is no need to implement air conditioning devices.
