Situated in the charming little town of Porto Moniz, perched on the northwestern tip of Madeira, Casa Penedia is a stylishly beautiful three-bedroom villa overlooking the ocean and accommodating up to six guests. Featuring some of the most dramatic views on the island, Casa Penedia is the perfect getaway for families and friends, with a bright, spacious interior that oozes rustic charm. The decor is primarily bright white, with sprays of exposed stonework, hardwood floors and classic furnishings, including a large cream corner sofa in the lounge area - perfect for relaxing in front of the TV after a day of taking in the sights.
The villa is uniquely designed to make the most of the incredible views, with ground floor bedrooms and an open plan first floor that opens out onto a large glass-fronted, furnished balcony. Casa Penedia lends itself perfectly to enjoying time together, with ample dining space for you and your guests at the solid wood dining table and a well-equipped kitchen that is roomy enough for everyone to chip in and prepare meals together. All of the high-end appliances you could possibly need are here, including an oven, microwave, toaster, fridge, coffee machine and kettle - as well as cookware, crockery and utensils. The villa also has a washing machine for extra convenience; ideal for holidaymakers who want to travel a little lighter, saving plenty of room in their luggage for souvenirs!
Casa Penedia features two double bedrooms and a twin room, making it an ideal accommodation choice for families with older children, as well as couples or friends holidaying together. A cot and highchair are available on request, too, so even the youngest guests can enjoy their stay in comfort. Each bedroom is decorated to the same high standard as the rest of the villa, with bright and fresh decor, well-appointed furniture and soft furnishings, and comfortable beds that promise a restful night’s sleep. For extra convenience, the villa has two bathrooms with shower facilities - meaning that everyone can get ready in the mornings stress-free!
The villa’s first-floor terrace is a real treat, with sun loungers for reclining with a good book or a glass of local wine and an alfresco dining area. Casa Penedia’s built-in barbecue area means that you’ll be able to rustle up a delicious feast for all to enjoy while taking in the breathtaking views of the Atlantic.
What you should know…
- The area’s famous laval pools can be quite dangerous to swim in during the winter months - not to mention cold!
- The town is small, so the restaurants and cafes in the town can get quite busy during peak season
- There is a high chair and cot available at Casa Penedia on request
- The villa is located in a small and quiet town, so it might not be an ideal destination for those who are looking for somewhere more bustling and cosmopolitan

Porto Moniz comprises towering mountains and rugged scenery and is famous for its whaling history. Today the town’s main attraction is its many lava pools, which, when filled by the rising tide, provide warm and safe waters for bathing - ideal for kids! These little pools are formed by natural volcanic rock and really are a sight to behold - pack your snorkelling gear, and you’ll be able to take a look at the small fish swimming at the bottom of the crystal clear waters! There is also a natural black sand beach here, one of the very few sandy beaches on the island. There are some great amenities that include a children’s swimming pool and play area, changing rooms with lockers, toilets, a first aid station and a snack bar. There are also sun loungers and parasols for hire.
There are some fabulous walking trails in the area which lead to stunning viewpoints high above the town, and we recommend visiting the harbour and the Forte de Sao Joao Baptista during your visit; both
attractions that reflect the town’s extensive history.
The region is also known for its vineyards that produce some excellent local wine (be sure to grab a bottle or two while you’re here!), as well as for offering some of the best fish and shellfish on the northern coast - the grilled limpets are a particular favourite. If you want to immerse yourself in the town’s culture while you are in Porto Moniz - and we highly recommend that you do! - there is a yearly summer cattle fair that is popular with locals and tourists alike and offers agricultural materials and products, as well as a variety of recreational activities that the whole family can enjoy.
Porto Moniz is home to some wonderful restaurants and eateries, mostly offering a variety of Portuguese seafood dishes, including tuna steaks, seafood rice and scabbard fish with banana. It’s worth noting that as it is a smaller village, these restaurants can get pretty busy during the summer months, so for a better eating experience, we recommend eating out in the late afternoon or early evening.

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!
Casa Penedia is a tranquil retreat ideally suited to families with children, with a twin room in addition to two double rooms and the option to have a highchair and cot provided for younger children. The villa is set over two storeys, so parents will want to be vigilant with younger kids who aren’t au fait with stairs, but guests of all ages are sure to enjoy the incredible views and quiet, family-friendly village of Porto Moniz.
There is a sandy beach of black volcanic sand nearby, and with amenities such as toilets, a play area and a beachside snack bar, it is easy to spend many happy hours here building sandcastles and enjoying the coastal lava pools, where the kids will enjoy spotting an array of marine life including colourful tropical fish and sea slugs. The island of Madeira is well-known for its beautiful hiking trails, so energetic children will enjoy spending time exploring the local area with the whole family - there are even some shorter trails that will be easier on little legs!
Eating out while on holiday with children can be a headache sometimes - particularly if your little ones happen to be fussy, but if you have adventurous young eaters in your midst, then you’re in luck, especially if they happen to love fish and seafood. Authentic Portuguese cuisine is the order of the day here, but fussier eaters won’t starve, with menus including ‘simpler’ dishes such as soups, salads, chips, roast chicken and meat dishes, as well as vegetarian options.
Porto Moniz is in the Calheta region, so if you’re after something really unique to do with the children and are able to travel to Calheta, we recommend visiting the marina there and seeing what boat trips and whale-watching tours are available. You’ll find one of the only golden sandy beaches on the island here where the kids can paddle and swim in safety, thanks to the barrier that creates an enclosed swimming area and prevents the larger waves from spoiling the fun. There are some great amenities available, including ample parking, parasol hire, grocery stores and a fantastic beachside cafe. If you have younger children, be sure to visit the beachside playground, which features a pirate ship climbing frame, as well as swings and bouncers for younger children. Calheta also offers a wide range of watersports and activities to enjoy, as well as courses in scuba diving and snorkelling, so it is easy to find something to amuse and delight children of all ages.
