About the Owner

Gary and Glenys moved to live on this beautiful island in October 2014 attracted to the moderate climate, stunning scenery and generous friendly people.

Glenys’ career designing ladies knitwear for the fast paced fashion business involved extensive travelling to the Far East. Having always been interested in art I hope to pursue my passion to paint the inspirational flora, fauna and seascapes on the island. There may be some of my pieces hanging on the wall in Bela Vista Villa, I hope you enjoy them?

A beautiful apartment in a stunning position

  • 5 of 5

If you are looking for peace and quiet with an amazing view then this is the apartment for you. It is immaculate throughout with everything you might need. A great shower, comfy sofa and a huge terrace to sit and enjoy the panoramic view. Gary was very helpful and friendly too.

This is quiet spot so if you are looking for nightlife, it's not the right place. You will need a car too to properly explore the area. However, if a chilled out holiday with peace and tranquillity is what you need, then this is the right place! We will definitely be back!

Top-class accommodation in a lovely location

  • 5 of 5

Previous reviewers have described the positive features of this fantastic villa, and I'm not sure there's much I can add. Based on the photographs and reviews, my wife and I had very high expectations, and we were not disappointed. The accommodation was immaculately clean and tidy on our arrival, and it was also very well-equipped. The view from the terrace was superb. As a keen birdwatcher I had come equipped with a telescope, and with the help of this I managed to see and identify three distant sperm whales from the terrace one evening. Nearer at hand, there were quite a few birds to see around the villa, including Atlantic canaries and plain swifts, which were new for me. Our hosts were friendly and helpful without being intrusive, and we appreciated the accurate maps and directions for finding the villa and visiting local shops. I would recommend this property without hesitation. Diolch yn fawr, Glenys a Gary!

Wonderful holiday in gorgeous villa

  • 5 of 5

This was a wonderful villa to stay in, it was so clean, and beautifully equipped, with everything we could possibly need. The terrace is gorgeous, with stunning views over the sea, and the owners, Gary and Glenys could not have done more for us, without being at all intrusive. From the moment we arrived, exhausted after the flight over, and they offered us food so we didn't have to go out again, to the advice on local places to visit, we really felt that they wanted us to enjoy our holiday as much as possible.

The fact they speak Welsh was an added bonus for my husband, who was able to talk to Glenys in his own language.

The villa was certainly the cleanest place I have stayed in, and I can honestly say we didn't find anything wrong.

It's ideally situated just about 20 minutes' drive from Funchal, and near supermarkets in Ribeira Brava . It's also a really quiet area, and very peaceful at night.

Exemptional accommodation

  • 5 of 5

This property is certainly 5 star accommodation, every small detail has been taken care of. It was definitely as described, in fact in reality it is even better. The view from the apartment is beautiful. It was spotlessly clean and maintained to a very high standard. Glenys and Gary are very welcoming and helpful without being intrusive. I would most definitely recommend this property to anybody who enjoys self catering and enjoys high quality accommodation. I would say a car is really needed although the bus does stop at the end of the road. We spent3 wonderful weeks and saw a lot of this beautiful island. Supermarkets are less expensive than the U.K. Coffees, wine, beers, pastries and eating out are very inexpensive.

Ribeira Brava has a lovely museum, shops, restaurants, public swimming pool, there is a safe sea bathing area with all facilities, one supermarket in town and two on the outskirts.

Bela Vista Villa is Exceptional

  • 5 of 5

So much has already been said by previous guests - all of which we completely agree with.

To add a couple of new points:

The build standard (quality) of the villa and apartment is superb!

The high ceilings give an added feeling of space.

Also, do ask to see Glenys' paintings - they are VERY good!

We did the big cable car at Funchal and were lucky enough to have a clear day - check for clouds before you go.

Yes, we did the toboggan down - well worth it!

(If you are braver than us, try the cable car at Achadas da Cruz - pretty well vertical drop for 450 metres!)

The Botanical Gardens have suffered a bit this year from the fires but are still well worth a visit.

The volcanic caves at Sao Vicente are a good day out - go on to the North coast and have some lunch afterwards.

The entire island is stunning - we are amazed how different each quadrant is.

Do get a diesel car - some of those mountain roads are seriously steep!

We will say it again, the hosts Gary, Glenys (and, of course, Louie) were perfect.

Thank you SO MUCH for a lovely holiday.

Stunning Villa!

  • 5 of 5

This villa is fantastic and a real credit to Gary & Glenys! The attention to detail and having everything you could possibly want in a holiday villa is amazing.

The villa is even better than the photos and spotlessly clean. Having stayed at many villas over the years this is one of the very best.

We would not hesitate to recommend this villa to anyone.

Thanks Gary , Glenys & Louis, we had a great holiday.
