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.

Calheta, meaning ‘Small Cove’, is where many tourists flock to in order to indulge in beautiful man-made beaches and striking scenery.

This part of Madeira is formed of several municipalities, each with something unique and special to offer. Calheta Village is an ideal place to start especially if you enjoy a stiff drink! An old sugar cane factory still produces one of the world’s most respected white rums – Aguardente…perhaps you want to leave this part of your holiday till late in the evening!

Jardim do Mar is where you will find many of the locals on dawn patrol, taking to the waves and surfing. The waters can both be heavy and flat, making them ideal for abilities of surfer. Akaw!
For lovers of seafood, you should look no further than Paul do Mar. This is a village where most of the fisherman work out of, so you know you’ll be able to find the catch of the day here.

For those who have travelled to Madeira for its inland beauty, then look no further than Arco da Calheta and Prazeres. Within these locations you won’t only be able find some stunning hiking trails, but you’re also likely to stumble across some traditionally styled Parishes and unforgettable views.


The island of Madeira can be found south west of mainland Portugal, in the middle of the Atlantic Ocean. Due to the island’s location, its is considered to have a Mediterranean climate that serves locals and visitors all year round – making it an ideal escape from reality at any point in the year.

What we love Madeira for is its seemingly ongoing festivals! Madeirans have found an excuse to celebrate most things; including film, their natural surroundings and key patron saints. This means that planning a visit during these days and even weeks of commemoration is well worth it (scroll down to see some key dates).

Madeira is divided into several municipals, each with a special offering to those who visit this island. Our favourite two communities are Funchal and Calheta and these are where you will find most of our beautiful villas.

Madeira’s landscape extends much more than a striking coastline. Make sure you pack some hiking boots and venture inland during your stay. With mountainous trails along Vereda do Arieiro, or more countryside appropriate paths like Levada do Risco and waterfall chasing treks like Levada do Caldeirao Verde – this archipelago has everything a keen outdoors person requires.

For those who enjoy either playing or watching sports, you’ll be happy to know Madeira offers so much selection. Madeira is also home to three notable football clubs, so if you’re visiting during the football season and want to see a good quality of football, you have every chance to. Porto Santo Golfe is the island’s renowned golf course. With an 18-hole course (Par 72) overlooking a Galapagos-like backdrop, golf enthusiasts will certainly want a ‘slice’ of the action! Surfers can access some great beaches like Jardim do Mar, Ponta Pequena, Paul do Mar, and Fajã da Ovelha in order to find some swell. Or, if you’re simply looking to recline on a sun lounger and soak up some rays, whilst listening to crystal clear waves break as they hit the shores, you will find plenty of man-made beaches & Lidos created for your leisure!

With a superb climate, close proximity to the coastline, wonderful cuisine, charming locals and astonishing scenery – this is a fabulous holiday choice for families & friends.

But while you're enjoying one of our fantastic villas in Madeira, you may well want to take some time out from all that sun worship to explore everything else the region has to offer – so we've put together this handy travel guide to give you a little help and inspiration!

  • The house has a exclusive location.

    on 30/08/2019

    The house has a exclusive location. You have a view on the village, the beach and other houses on the flanks of the narrow valley. The house is very spacious and very clean! Because there is no parkingspace you have to leave your car on the road. Then you have to do some stairs and a short walk along the bananatrees to the house, for us no problem at all. If you like music, this is the perfect place to stay. Sometimes there is music in the evening from the hotel on the other side of the hill or from the village. We liked it! That also means that during the day you hear the noise from the traffic in the village that is driving to the nearby VE3. The communication with Carlos was perfect!

  • Great vacation

    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!

    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

    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.
