About Helena Paiva

My parents were both born in Madeira but they both came to the Island of Jersey in the English Channel back in the early sixties. I was born in Jersey along with my sister & Brother and were educated in Jersey. I am married and have a daughter, my husband was brought up in Madeira. I love to travel and did a bit of travelling through Asia in 1999 - 2000.

Helena Paiva purchased this villa in 2006

Why Helena Paiva chose Funchal

My parents are from the Island, and majority of my family are there. My husband was brought up in Madeira and would like to retire there, this is why we bought the property but until we retire we would like to share the experience of our beautiful villa and the beautiful island of Madeira with others so that you can experience what Madeira has to offer.

What makes this villa unique

One of the best attraction that the villa has which we enjoy when we go over and a few of our guests have also mentioned is that it is in a very peaceful area and you can sit at the bottom of the garden with a drink and enjoy the wonderful view of Funchal - because of how high the villa is situated.

Guestbook comments from the manager

Guest 1: Villa was excellent - what a stunning view - could sit all day and just gaze. Great size rooms. Accommodates six with ease. Pool lovely, BBQ area is superb - best one in 6 villa hols I have booked over the years.

Madeira itself is simply breathtaking - explored virtually whole island.

I will probably be back again at some stage.

Thank you again for your organisation

Guest 2:We had a great time in Madeira from the moment we landed until we left. Upon arriving at the airport, the rep was very helpful.We thought the villa was fabulous and the pictures on the internet did not do it justice, especially the views which were amazing. It was more than well equipped with everything that was needed. lady who came to clean and change linen was very thorough.

Getting around was not a problem, once we found our bearings. The neighbours were helpful in letting us know that we had left the car lights on. We would not hesitate recommending it to others.

Well thought out and well located villa

  • 5 of 5

Lovely view of Funchal with all the amenities you need for a great family break or a group break. The owner has thought about most of the eventualities and ensured you have the resources for them. The kids loved playing in the pool and drying off in the warm sun while overlooking Funchal and the sea. The welcome book gave great tips and advice on what to do. A short drive to Funchal or outlying areas made it easy to get a taste of Madeira...

Ottimo soggiorno

  • 5 of 5

La casa è molto bella con splendida vista su Funchal inoltre è dotata di tutte le necessarie attrezzature (compresa una Moka per 6 persone) e di ogni piccolo elettrodomestico. Confortevoli il locale barbecue, la piscina con sedie a sdraio ed il parapetto in vetro che permette una ottima visuale verso l'oceano. Abbiamo particolarmente apprezzato, considerata la nostra età, la qualità dei materassi. Inoltre è in ottima posizione per visitare l'isola. Consigliamo vivamente questa struttura.

Location parfaite!

  • 5 of 5

Nous avons passé 2 semaines dans cette villa située sur les hauteurs est de Funchal.

La maison est spacieuse, parfaitement équipée, très bien entretenue et propre, le linge est fourni et changé en milieu de séjour, le ménage est également effectué.

La vue est absolument incroyable, il n'y a aucun vis à vis coté jardin/piscine.

A recommander!

A noter que les photos du site ne mettent pas la maison en valeur.

Car: recommended


There is only 1 airport in Madeira, Funchal airport. We recommend that a car is hired to make the most of your holiday. Madeira has some lovely places to see, and for those that like trekking there are also lovely places that can only be reached by foot, all this information can be acquired by the Tourism Office in Funchal. We provide a driver to collect or lead the way from the airport to the villa at no extra cost.


The villa is just on the outskirt of Funchal therefore quite central. There is a large supermarket just 5min drive with petrol station, bank and cafes. You then also have Canico which has restaurants, bars and cafes. 15 min drive you have the Santa Cruz Waterpark. Most places can be reached quite quickly due to the motorways although you still have some of the old roads which can be scenic but also bumpy. Near the villa there is a botanic garden which in summer is very beautiful to visit.

Further Details:

The driver that we have available for pick up and drop off is available for guided tours this will be paid by yourselves direct to the driver. Owners speak English and Portuguese. There is alot of activities to suit all, you can do whale and dolphin watching as well as diving, all information will be given at the tourist office.
