The building is a gated community of twenty-one apartments over five floors that share a garden location amongst the local banana groves situated below the village.
180 metres above sea level, the apartments enjoy privacy. The property was built in 1997 and since then the owners have carried out a number of improvements. Each apartment can also enjoy the beautiful outdoor swimming pool and sun deck.
Arco da Calheta is an unspoilt rural village that has a church, sports centre, post office, various shops selling local goods, hairdressers and a taxi rank — these are all within a short walking distance from the apartments.
