Stay either in the main house or in one of the very well appointed s/c cottages in the vineyard. You can have dinner in the house if you want - good local food, simply cooked, but the service can be a little slow.

Room Tip: Cottages away from the car park and near the pool are the quietest.

We had a wonderful cabin with fireplace and fully equipped (we got a starter kit with water, butter, jam, milk) kitchen. Buns were delivered every morning so we could take the breakfast on our terrasse with view to the ocean. A small supermarket is just outside of the resort. Drive to levadas is 20-45min (Santana, Pico Ruvio/Grande) and 5min to paul do mar or jardim do mar for surfing. Super friendly staff and beautiful vineyard. Can defenetly recommend it.

We stayed in the cabins at Quita ads Vinhas. It was perfect for us. Loved the peaceful feel. Beautiful countryside scenery vs the compact hotels and condos elsewhere. We could sit outside on grassy lawns around a small pool and see the stars and twinkling lights along the valley at night. Lovely. You will need a car. Internet is only available in the big house. Great welcoming staff will help you with anything (loaned me hiking poles and helped find a good car rental). On site restaurant was only okay.

We stayed in a cottage for a week in November 2015. This was a really great place to stay – so relaxing.

The cottage was split level with the bed, bed side tables and a large chest of drawers (no wardrobe) on the mezzanine. On the ground floor was a spacious the bathroom, clothes hanging space under the stairs, kitchen area with a small table and two chairs, and a lounge area with a settee, armchair, coffee table and TV. There was the option of an open fire or an electric radiator – if you needed it.

The kitchen was well fitted out with two rings, microwave, toaster, kettle and coffee maker; cutlery, crockery, pots and pans.

Outside on the small but pretty patio was another small table and two chairs. The cottage was one of a group clustered around a swimming pool with its own seating area.

There was a welcome pack of essentials (butter, milk Jam etc.) and four fresh bread rolls delivered very morning.

The main hotel, a former manor house, is up a steepish path which is lit at night, but a torch is helpful. The food was traditional Madeiran and there seemed an emphasis on home cooking. We ate there once and it was good to meet the other guests.

Whilst there we also ate at Conventio das Vinhas – if you eat out in Calheta eat there.

We had a large room with doors onto the arcaded path to the pool. The atmosphere in the house was very relaxing and the staff very helpful and friendly. We would certainly return. The walking opportunities were excellent if you have a car. Bus services in this part of the island are hopeless. Some of the less well-known levadas and coastal walks were beautiful. The weather could not have been better - at the end of September. There were plenty of places to eat in addition to the house itself.

Room Tip: The three rooms on the lower floor have direct access to the garden and the pool.
