This lovely modern villa is situated in a quiet family-friendly neighbourhood in the picturesque village of Madalena do Mar. This charming fishing village on the southwest coast of Madeira provides a variety of attractions, from quaint restaurants serving delicious seafood, historic buildings set amongst lush scenery and a pretty pebble beach on which to soak up the year-round Madeiran sun, all just moments from the villa. And with the more vibrant Calheta just a ten-minute drive away you will have plenty to keep the whole family amused.

The ground floor encompasses a delightful open plan living area providing various spots in which to relax and entertain. A large dining table, smart modern kitchen with a breakfast bar and a comfortable seating area all benefit from the amass of sunshine pouring through a series of glass doors out onto a fabulous terrace area.

The attractive bedrooms at Villa Santa Maria are located on the first floor, all of which continue the chic modern style visible on the ground floor. Finished in calming neutral tones these elegant retreats will provide guest with a much-needed sanctuary after a long day exploring the Island. All bedrooms have the luxury of opening out onto a beautiful terrace area, where stylish seating and loungers await, boasting views right out across the Atlantic.

The main terrace accessed through the living area on the ground floor is a fantastic space in which to maximise the glorious sunshine. This calming oasis, full of local flora and fauna and boasting a lovely outdoor pool is the perfect place in which to forget your everyday cares and drift away. And with shaded seating areas as well as a dining table, cooking up a feast on the barbecue and enjoying the fruits of your labour well into the balmy nights is a must.

Madalena do Mar is a charming fishing village found on the southwest coast of Madeira, where Banana Plantations abound, providing a lush landscape visitor will love to get out and explore. Backed by majestic mountains this coastal gem boasts fantastic views both of the Atlantic Ocean and the stunning countryside that surrounds it. The pretty pebble beach with its attractive promenade is the perfect spot in which to while away the afternoons before heading to one of the lovely traditional seafood restaurants to enjoy some locally caught limpets, a traditional delicacy.

Just 8km down the road you can find the livelier coastal town of Calheta. This lovely area is a very popular spot due to its beautiful sandy beaches, some of the first man-made beaches on the Island, as well as the crystal-clear water, where a variety of activities are on offer from snorkelling to surfing as well as some fantastic whale watching tours. For a great afternoon activity in the town be sure to visit the sugar cane museum and working factory where you’ll not want to miss the complementary slice of delicious traditional honey cake and glass of Poncha.


There are a wide range of activities on offer on the Island, but one that has visitors travel from around the globe to experience, is the 2,092 kilometres of narrow stone irrigation channels known as levadas, criss-crossing Madeira's lush mountainous countryside into the Laurisilva forest. These hiking trails offer the most outstanding views and vary in abilities. In fact, three stunning trails can be found within easy reach of your villa.

If it’s the more dynamic activities you’re after, perhaps make the most of these wonderful terrains by partaking in one of the many mountain-bike trails that plunge and ascend this beautiful landscape, or throw yourself into some adrenaline-pumping canyoning, which will have you shooting over cascades and abseiling down beautiful waterfalls.

For the more serene, perhaps a wine tasting tour on the south coast of the Island, or a day trip to the historic Capital of Funchal is the perfect way to spend your time. Whatever your itinerary, the beautiful Island of Madeira with its year-round sunshine really does have something for everyone.
