If ‘luxury’ is top of your list when choosing your holiday accommodation, look no further than Casa Tipica, an incredibly stylish cliff-top villa featuring breathtaking ocean views and a style and ambience you’ll be talking about long after your holiday has ended. Featuring a cosy cottage aesthetic that oozes sophistication, Casa Tipica accommodates up to six guests across two double bedrooms, with the addition of a sumptuous sofa bed.

The interior really is a joy to behold, with a light, neutral decor throughout with high, wooden-beamed ceilings, floor-to-ceiling windows and doors and numerous balconies to really showcase those incredible sea and mountain views. Set over three spacious floors, Casa Tipica features everything you and your family will need to enjoy the most memorable of holidays, including comfortable lounge areas with large corner sofas, beautifully textured soft furnishings, warming pellet fireplaces, handsomely crafted furniture, and flatscreen TVs. The villa offers spaces for relaxation and contemplation, as well as ample room to dine together, and a large well-equipped kitchen featuring high-end appliances, including a washing machine and dryer - perfect if you want to pack lighter and leave room in your suitcase for souvenirs.

The villa’s separate, cosy living spaces make Casa Tipica a first-rate choice for groups of friends or families holidaying together, giving the option of privacy when needed, and two stylish and modern bathrooms make living arrangements extra convenient. The bedrooms are decorated to the same high standard as the living areas, with high-quality furnishings, fresh, light decor and those stunning beamed ceilings. A haven of peace and tranquillity, a restful night is assured at Casa Tipica, and of course, you have those glorious views to wake up to! Oliver recommends enjoying a morning cuppa on the bedroom balcony as you drink in your incredible surroundings and plan the day ahead.

Casa Tipica features an equally impressive outdoor space, with a large, fully furnished patio terrace, barbecue area and several furnished balconies - ideal for alfresco meals, pre-dinner drinks, reading, sunbathing, and the list goes on. The jewel in this villa’s incredible crown is the covered and climatised private pool - a surreal and magical experience to enjoy while holidaying in this incredible mountain region.

Oliver Approved

What you should know…

  • Casa Tipica's private pool is completely covered, and the glass exterior can get quite 'fogged up', so we wouldn't recommend leaving young children in there unattended
  • There is a supermarket within easy walking distance of the villa
  • A highchair and cot are available on request
  • The villa sleeps up to six guests, although two of you will need to make use of a sofa bed

Casa Tipica is situated in the village of São Jorge in the municipality of Santana. São Jorge, which is a land of unique landscapes, is also interesting in relation to the natural and historical heritage.

Those who visit the parish can take the opportunity to get to know Serragem da Achadinha. It was considered to be a Monument of Local Value by the Regional Directorate of Cultural Affairs (DRAC) since 1998. Located in the Sítio da Achadinha this sawmill offers you the possibility to observe ‘on-site' a watermill and water-powered saw, which show how the population used the driving force of the water for their livelihood.

In Calhau de São Jorge you can find the Primitive Core of the parish of São Jorge. These ruins belong to the old sugar cane mills that were built there in the early settlement. This nucleus is classified as a Monument of Municipal Interest since 2003, because of its historical relevance.

You must also visit the lighthouse of São Jorge, in Sítio da Vigia. Apart from serving as a guide for marine navigation, it is a very popular place for visitors. Also stop off at the viewpoint of Pico and indulge yourself with a panoramic view over the parishes of São Jorge and Santana.

São Jorge has, as a monument of great interest, its parish church. Built in 1761, this temple is considered the landmark of the architectural heritage of the Municipality because it is the largest Baroque church in the region. Apart from its great size, its interior has an altar in gilded woodwork and a fine collection of paintings. This Church is considered a Monument of Local Value by the Regional Directorate of Cultural Affairs (DRAC), since 1995.

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!

Best Suited For: All Ages
Ideal for Teens

Casa Tipica’s elevated position, fantastic views and spacious, well-laid-out rooms are sure to delight guests of all ages, so it’s no surprise that families with children choose this stunning villa for their holiday accommodation. The addition of a double sofa bed makes sleeping arrangements simple for those with older children who don’t mind sharing, and there is a cot available for families travelling with a baby or toddler.

Caution is advised with young children near the stairs, balconies and in the private pool, but well-supervised children are sure to enjoy all that the villa has to offer - particularly the climatised pool. It is worth noting that there are two small steps accessing the covered area, so it could be difficult for very young children to enter the pool area unaided. If you have any little artists or photographers in your midst, they’ll be in their element here, with plenty of gorgeous landscapes to sketch, paint and photograph, and if you happen to visit between April and May they might even get the chance to witness the incredible blue whale migration. There are numerous walking trails in the area, and most are suitable even for the youngest of legs, as well as natural pools and ecological areas teeming with wildlife to explore. If you want to spend a family day at the beach, we recommend heading to the coastal town of Calheta, where you’ll find a beautiful sandy beach that has fantastic amenities and is close to restaurants, cafes and shops. There’s also a really well-maintained beachside playground here that the little ones will enjoy that includes equipment such as a pirate ship climbing frame, swings and bouncers.

Kids who love sports and being on the water will be in their element in Calheta, as it is popular with those who love to surf, snorkel and scuba dive. There are plenty of places along the marina where you can hire equipment or book courses in these activities, as well as paragliding, kayaking and windsurfing. For a truly unique experience, while visiting the island of Madeira with the kids, Oliver recommends booking a whale-watching tour - a popular activity with visitors here - for the chance to spot some of these majestic creatures in the wild.
