Cottage Sol

A house near the sky, with an extraordinary view. You will feel like the king of the world!

Up to 4 people Self-catering Equipped Kitchenette Private Garden Free WIFI

The house Sol is one of the highest cottages of Calhau Grande, being totally independent from the other houses. It is a very cosy cottage with two floors and a balcony which embraces an incredible view over the Atlantic Ocean. This balcony is directly connected with a private garden and orchard, where you can have a meal or drink a glass of Madeiran wine as the sun goes down through the ocean. Outside, there is also a barbecue area, with a table and chairs, where you can cook your own meals while looking to an outstanding view. The cottage is facing the sun [sol] and the ocean, benefiting from very nice and warm temperatures.



Inside the cottage, the ground floor, working like an open space studio, is dedicated to a comfort area with a bed, a kitchenette and a bathroom with shower. Upstairs, taking advantage from the eaves of the construction, there is a comfortable lounge area built from local wood. It is a truly warm additional room, that can also be used to rest, play games, or even to read quietly with the sounds of the nature as a background environment. Its crowning glory is exactly its floor-to-ceiling opening glass wall which gives unbelievable views to the ocean and to the private garden, even while lying in bed.

Peaceful, rural and quiet place How do you know if you had a good holiday? For me… when you have no idea what day it is. I came stressed in mind and body and I leave very relaxed and sad, because holidays are over. With the sun in the sky as the only clock and this peaceful, rural and quiet place you can´t hurry. Thanks very much Sofia and the rest of the Gouveia Family. We wish you always many and nice guests! Christoph and Jenni 11/2016
Wonderful stay Sofia and Family, thank you for a wonderful stay at Calhau Grande! This is a place to really relax and to explore the western side of Madeira. We are now watching our final sunset from the balcony as I am writing this, a very cool experience! Thanks again and maybe until another time! Hilbrand and Inge 10/2016
