About the property

3 Bedroom Villa with Heated Pool in Peaceful Location Close to all Amenities

This magnificent detached Villa, occupies one of the finest ocean front positions, with sensational 180º far reaching views.With a private heated swimming pool, garden, sea view terraces, games room, air-conditioning in bedrooms and two wood burning fires for cooler winter evenings.

Located in a peaceful residential area of Garajau, yet within easy walking distance to all amenities – supermarkets, bakery, restaurants and bars, Villa Aquarela was totally refurbished to a very high standard in 2012. The end result is a stunning 3 bedroom villa, with 627 square metres on living space, beautifully furnished and equipped to a very high standard.

On the first floor is a bright, spacious open plan lounge, with leather sofas, flat screen television and wood burning fire. Adjacent to this is the dining area and fully equipped kitchen and separate laundry room. There is a second lounge with fireplace and views of the sea, pool and garden below. Patio doors from both lounges open onto the south facing terraces. Also on this level are two of the bedrooms, a twin with separate shower room and the Master Double Bedroom with en-suite bathroom and sea view balcony.

On the lower level is the third double bedroom with en-suite shower room and direct access to the terrace, patios and swimming pool. All bedrooms have individually controlled air conditioning units. There is yet another sunny seating area, a pool table, ping pong table and table football – so plenty to keep the children (and adults) amused at any time of the day!

There is plenty of outdoor space with a variety of patios for you to relax and enjoy your days in the sunshine. There is a large wooden dining table and chairs by the built in barbecue, making dining al fresco a must. Just below, perched above the sea cliff, is the swimming pool, sun loungers and shower and tropical garden, all with 180º views of the ocean.

The location of the villa is peaceful and private, yet with the benefits of having everything on your door step. You can take the local pathways down to the headland where you have the ‘Cristo Rei’ – Statue of Christ, and below it the pebble beach of Garajau, which is accessed by cable car and offers sea bathing, changing rooms and a lovely sea front bar and restaurant. Just a few minutes’ walk is the bus stop with a regular service to the capital Funchal, only 10 minutes away. The Palheiro Golf Course is also close by, just 10 minutes by car.

The villa has secure electronic gated parking and free Wi-Fi.

Guestbook comments from the manager

Have just had the most amazing time staying at Villa Aquarella in Madiera. The villa is in an excellent position with panoramic views over the ocean. The children loved the games room & the pool, I just can't fault anything! There's local restaurants & shops within walking distance, and a regular bus into the capital of Funchal. The villa is so spacious, with everything you could wish for, all in all a perfect destination for our family holiday.

Villa Aquarella

  • 5 of 5

Bonjour,

Voilà maintenant près d'une semaine que nous sommes rentrés sans encombre chez nous et je voudrais vous remercier pour la qualité des prestations que votre agence nous a fournies.

En effet que ce soit pour le transfert de l'aéroport, la mise à disposition à une heure tardive de la maison très confortable, la propreté dans laquelle nous l'avons trouvée, la parfaite concordance avec la description et les images sur le site internet, la réactivité à régler au plus vite les petits problèmes constatés, la facilité de location du véhicule et son prix tout compris, tout a été parfait.

Merci encore et bonne continuation

Bien cordialement,

G.André

Perfect house in a good location

  • 5 of 5

The house was even better and bigger, than we expected from the pictures. We were 6 adults, we used and enjoyed every corner of the spacy house. Preheated pool was a must for us, and it worked perfectly. Linda, who meet us at the house, was very kind and helpful. Big sunny barbeque area. Everything just modern and in good condition. Highly recommended.

A great villa on a beautiful island.

  • 5 of 5

A fabulous villa, clean,tidy and well maintained with everything you could possibly need provided for you. Positioned with an easy walk into the local shops and restaurants, so although we had a car we seldom used it on an evening.

Would definitely recommend this villa.

Ocean front villa - Garajau, Madeira

  • 5 of 5

This villa was as described. It is spacious, but also has quiet comfortable areas to relax. Everywhere was clean and beautifully presented. The kitchen is well equipped; we stayed for 2 weeks and used most of the domestic appliances including the cooker and washing machine. There is a games room downstairs with snooker and I recommend the table football...great fun!

The views are simply breathtaking, with nothing to obscure the gorgeous blue sea. The pool was clean and maintained and the gardens appear to have recently had newly planted flowers and shrubs. . Each terrace is a delight to use and the owners have put a lot of thought into providing the essentials for their visitors. It is about a 10 min walk to the shops and restaurants which cater for your every need. We found the local bakery and coffee bars offered delicious cakes bread etc. The restaurants in Garajau are of a high standard with a good selection of fresh fish + meat. We used both the bus and taxis with ease and found local people helpful and friendly.

The owner has a handbook which was very useful.

I would recommend this villa the location is excellent and the facilities made our stay in Madeira a delight.
