About the property

Oceanfront, pool, Old Town

Amazing property right on top of the Atlantic ocean, with the luxury of unlimited sea views, swimming pool and tropical garden. A very secluded dream property right on top of sea in the most sought after location in all Madeira - The Old Town of Funchal.

The property consists of two units, Beach House (4 beds) and Surf Studio (2 beds). Both units can be rented separately or together, then adding up to 6 sleeps. Each unit has its own terrace with trellis giving extra privacy. All bedrooms are with sea views. Bathrooms have large showers & modern fittings. The swimming pool gets sun all day, and this part of Funchal is by far the sunniest in all Madeira making it the perfect winter home. Beach House and Surf Studio share the pool.

In the surroundings of the property there are only nice Madeiran houses with gardens, great sea views, local cafés and restaurants. Funchal fruit-, vegetable- and fish Market is just a short walk away. Enjoy the buzzing old town by day and night, try the local fish restaurants and poncha bars, and then come back to the tranquility of this oceanfront house. A dream location very very rare to find.

This property is the ideal base from where you can explore the beautiful island of Madeira. It is located in the heart of Funchal, just by the seaside, where you can swim, water ski, scuba dive, sail and so much more. The two golf courses are very near, Palheiro Golf is just 13 min away and Santo da Serra Golf is just 28 min away by car.

Madeira is a hikers paradise and from here you can reach the mountains and discover the levada trails. A bus stop is nearby, and the main road to the airport is very easy to catch. No car is necessary, everything is a short walk away. But if you have a car you can just park on the street outside.

If you would like to swim in the ocean, we recommend the public bath Barreirinha 500 metres away with showers and lifeguards. There you also find a very nice beach café!

When it comes to restaurants, you have only 400 meters to “OTasco”, 500 m to “Riso” (try their confetti duck;), 600 m to “Do Forte” or 900 m to "Mozart" (go for the special menu with wine package, great value)! Skipping restaurant for a night, make the most out of a BBQ: fresh fruit, vegetables, fish and meat are just nearby in the famous Funchal market 1.2 km away. Perfect for an al fresco-lunch or dinner by the poolside.

When is a great time to visit the island? All year round! There are events each month going on such as fireworks, flower festival, golf open, carnivals, big game fishing, garden shows, music festivals & much more to keep you entertained year round. Madeira events to look out for: New Year Fireworks in Madeira (has the record of the biggests fireworks in the world), Madeira Walking Festival (January), Madeira carnival, Madeira Flower Festival (May), Madeira islands Open Golf (May), Funchal Atlantic Fireworks Festival (June), Funchal jazz (July), Madeira Rally (August), Madeira Wine Festival (September), Madeira Christmas (December)

Quiet but close to town

  • 4 of 5

Very nice place, walk distance to city center, only one negative point:there should be screens to all windoms specialy in bath room to ventilate, beside this very pleasant and confortable home.

Spectacular views and a magnificent pool

  • 4 of 5

The property is located about 600m from the centre of the old town on a steep hill overlooking

the ocean.

First impressions were good. Property was spacious inside and the terrace was very generous.

The view from the terrace was exceptional with views of the panoramic ocean and across to the

busy harbour with its regular arrival of cruise ships. The pool was large & refreshing and was

certainly one of the main attractions for us whilst staying at the villa. Sun-bathing by the

pool had a feeling of complete tranquillity with only the local gulls breaking the silence.

The property itself contained all you needed for an enjoyable stay including a fully equipped

kitchen should you decide to dine out on the large terrace. The living room had Satellite TV &

Wi-Fi so you could keep up with events back home.

We made a trip to the large supermarket on the first day to stock up on supplies and got a

taxi back as it is a bit of a trek especially with a lot of shopping and the smaller local

supermarkets only stocked limited items.

Funchal old town is a bustling centre of cafes, restaurants and bars offering a variety of

quality local and international dishes. A particular favourite was Santa Maria which did

exceptionally tasty pizza at reasonable prices, ideal for a stay on a budget.

I would suggest that the steep terrain is not to everybody liking but if you are able to

explore locally then you are in for a treat. One little gem was the little bar situated about

half way between the town centre and the villa which served as a very welcome refreshment

break as we made our way back in the beautiful sunshine.

We organised taxi transfers with the letting agents which were impeccably on time so adding to

our overall enjoyment of the holiday.

The winter weather in Madeira is in the low 20's so we may be tempted back to the island for a

top-up of our tans!

Would thoroughly recommend this property for a tranquil, comfortable and enjoyable sunshine

Wunderschönes Haus in perfekter Lage

  • 5 of 5

Das Haus ist wunderschön und die Lage perfekt. Kurze Wege in die Altstadt und zum einkaufen, dabei absolut ruhig.

Da wir gerne kochen haben wir uns sehr über die sehr gut ausgestattete Küche gefreut.

Wir hatten 14 perfekte Tage auf Madeira und kommen sicher einmal wieder.
