Situated in a family-friendly neighbourhood in the picturesque village of Prazeres on the southwest coast of Madeira, this delightful modern villa with stunning sea views is a fantastic choice for a family or group of friends looking to get away from it all. Surrounded by an abundance of nature, with beautiful hiking trails on your doorstep as well as pretty beaches within a few minutes’ drive, you’ll love to experience the great outdoors that surrounds you. The local village will provide lovely traditional restaurants as well as shops in which to get all your essentials, but if you want a little more excitement then the charming town of Calheta is just 8km down the road.

Some of the rooms benefit from glass doors out onto a sun-drenched terrace, perfect for maximising the warm Madeiran sun, or just letting the gentle sea breeze cool you at the end of a long day.

The exterior space at Villa Viana affords the luxury of a large terrace off the living area, appreciating uninterrupted views of the glistening Atlantic. Set around an enticing outdoor pool, guests will love to recline on stylish loungers before diving in to cool off. When it gets too hot, grab some shade on the outdoor seating to enjoy a sundown cocktail or two before dining al fresco, having cooked up a treat on the barbeque - a perfect end to another perfect day on the beautiful Island of Madeira.

The villa is situated in a quiet family-friendly neighbourhood in the picturesque village of Prazeres in the relatively rural southwest region of Madeira. Where majestic mountains and lush banana plantations meet the crystal-clear azure waters of the Atlantic, there is something for everyone in this quiet corner of Madeira. Prazeres village has a gentle charm, with a little animal farm, herb garden and tea rooms attached to the local church. And for beach bums, Jardim do Mar - quite literally the ‘garden of the sea’, a scenic coastal area boasting three pebble beaches backed by spectacular scenery, is only minutes away. For adrenaline junkies, you’ll love to know the best surf on the Island can be found here.

Just a short drive down the road you can find the lovely coastal town of Calheta. This popular spot is home to one of the first man-made beaches on the Island. With beautiful golden sand and beautifully clear waters, this family-friendly beach offers a range of activities including snorkelling, canoeing and windsurfing. And with frequent whale watching tours also on offer, the whole family are kept entertained. The town itself has a great variety of restaurants offering fantastic seafood, as well as a good number of bars and shops. And for something a little different, the sugar cane museum and working factory is well worth a visit.

One of the most breath-taking activities on the Island of Madeira has to be the wonderful 2,092 kilometres of narrow stone irrigation channels known as levadas that are used as hiking trails, criss-crossing Madeira's lush mountainous countryside into the Laurisilva forest. In fact, there are three stunning trails within easy reach of the villa, offering spectacular views, so be sure to pack appropriate footwear!

40km east of the villa you’ll find Madeira’s historic capital Funchal, a fantastic destination for a fun-packed day trip. Funchal is a wonderful city in a beautiful setting amidst banana plantations and floral gardens, facing proudly out to the glistening Atlantic Ocean. Amble along the promenade enjoying a glass or two of Poncha in one of the beachfront bars, before taking the cable car up to Monte to visit the world-renowned tropical gardens. Little and big kids will love the traditional wicker taboggan run back down to the old town where you can enjoy mouth-watering seafood, delicious skewered meats and exquisite tapas in one of the many fantastic restaurants.

The whole Island is relatively easy to explore due to its size. So whether it’s wine tasting in the south, or relaxing in the black lava pools of the north, the stunning natural scenery of Madeira ensures there really is something for everyone here.

THE REGION

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.

ABOUT MADEIRA

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!

Villa Viana is a great choice of villa for any family; situated in a quiet neighbourhood with a spacious open plan living area, a selection of double and twin bedrooms as well as a fantastic outdoor pool.

Being so close to the Ocean, there are a wide variety of water sports on offer close to the villa, from snorkelling and canoeing to surfing and windsurfing. There are also whale watching tours for budding nature enthusiasts

There are three quiet beaches in Jardim do Mar as well as a lovely family friendly sandy beach where water is calmer in the more popular Calheta

Funchal, just 40km away, has many activities kids will enjoy. The 20-minute cable ride is a great way to see the Island from above, and the traditional wicker taboggan ride down will excite both little and big kids alike. There is also a fantastic lido right on the water’s edge, ensuring a safe space for kids to swim and play

The caves at São Vicente, just 37km from the villa, provide a great option for a day out. They were formed when the lava from the volcanic eruptions thousands of years ago forced the hot liquid through the rock. Now it is possible to walk through some of these passageways which give a fascinating insight in to the geology of the area. There is a great museum and 3D cinema as part of the experience.

Reviews

  • Perfect for chilling out

    on 17/09/2019

    A stunning villa, with stunning views, this was perfect for two families with teenage children. It’s a great base for exploring the western end of the island and chilling out by the pool.

    The Villa is perfect, so not much really to improve other than some extra pillows and some more cutlery.

  • Great vacation

    on 30/03/2019

    A great house, beautiful views and great service! We felt really good!

  • Very Good!

  • Very Good!

    on 18/04/2018

    We originally had booked another house, but Heliodoro offered us this house, because the house we booked was no longer available. Very Good! Villa Viana is very new and fantastic to stay for a holiday. You have every comfort, very clean, nice kitchen and a private swimming pool. The appointment with Heliodoro for the key was very professional. We recommend Villa Viana!

  • We had a fantastic holiday!

    on 27/02/2018

    We have just returned from a week staying here, and we didn't actually want to leave! We felt right at home as soon as we arrived. The villa is superb - it has everything you need for a relaxing and enjoyable holiday. It is spacious, decorated beautifully, and the location is perfect, with wonderful views of the mountains and sea. Having a pool to jump into whenever we want also added to the fun for the kids. The villa is located about 5-10 minutes drive to the beach and main town, so you can divide your time between the pool and beach. Rueben who met us on arrival and checkout was brilliant - he drove us around to show us how to find the local supermarket, restaurants and beach. I have already recommend the villa to friends as it's the perfect villa for both friends and families. We definitely feel that the villa was value for money and staying there made our first visit to Madeira so much more enjoyable. We had a fantastic holiday!

  • A great villa with a fascinating view!

    on 06/01/2018
