What you should know…

  • Pool heating is optional with an additional cost and should be requested at least a week in advance. However, Madeira usually has a pleasantly warm climate
  • There is an additional bed available if required
  • Point of the Sun does not have direct access to the road. It is reachable via 25 steps and 60m walk along a levada path. Though, this does mean that the home benefits from a calm ambience

Ponta do Sol is a favourite amongst visitors, as it tends to be the sunniest place on the island and you can enjoy dramatic views of the sea splashing off the rocky beach. One of the oldest municipalities in Madeira, Ponta do Sol is one of the most attractive and character-full towns on the island, with small streets and lanes that have been carefully preserved along with the delightful town houses. Some of these have been transferred into small hotels, bars and restaurants.

Seasoned golfers will be eager to visit the Palheiro Golf course which is situated only 30 km from the villa. Set within the wonderful 200-year-old Palheiro Estate beside five-star hotel Casa Velha do Palheiro, the golf course itself is a beautiful sight worth admiring. So, even if you don’t play, you can enjoy taking in the arresting scenery.

The 18-hole championship golf course was designed by golf architect Cabell B. Robinson and sits almost 500m above sea level so benefits from striking views over the skyline and ocean. The course is also home to a wonderful botanical woodland containing vegetation and beautiful fragrant flora.

Funchal Airport is only 40 km away from the villa.

  • Great vacation

    Posted by Gana & Klaus on 03/02/2019

    Our family of four spend the Christmas holidays and New Years at this wounderful home. We were made to feel at home and like visiting a friend. Thank you sooooo much. We will be back.

  • We loved it!

    Posted by Jessica on 16/12/2018

    The villa was amazing. It Had everything we needed. We traveled with our two children who loved the pool. The views are breathtaking. The property management and villa owners are so very helpful. We would stay in this villa again.

  • What a view

    Posted by Andrew on 25/08/2017

    Excellent property well located on the cliffs overlooking the beach. The house has a nice homely feel and a well equipped kitchen. The views are amazing and the location is nice, as it's not far from Funchal but far enough away to feel more relaxing and slower paced.
