Pool Modern Ideal for Kids Walk to Beach Walk to Village

This fabulous, five-bedroom villa sits on the east coast of Madeira in Caniçal, and has ample space for a family or group of friends. Surrounded by lush palm trees, and sea and mountain views, Casa Boal is a light and beautiful place.

There’s a fantastic games room on the lower ground floor where you can rack up a game of billiards, and a handy laundry room for washing and drying clothes. But the ground floor is where it all takes place. The living areas and bedrooms are all located on this level giving the property a sense of fluidity. Whitewashed walls, wooden-panelled flooring and modern furnishings create a tranquil ambience, and it won’t be long before you’re relaxing on the huge sectional sofa and staring through the floor-to-ceiling glass doors at the endless blue sky and equally blue sea. There’s also a sleek dining table, seating eight people, for sociable evening meals. The rear kitchen is kitted out with every modern appliance you’ll need for a comfortable stay including microwave, coffee machine and refrigerator, and there’s also a small breakfast table, perfect for a casual bite to eat.

Two separate corridors lead off from the open-plan living area to the five bedrooms featuring a mix of single and double beds. There are also five bathrooms with baths. The bedrooms are all light and airy and adorned with fresh, modern furnishings but with the natural light flooding through the windows and the alluring swimming pool glistening in the sunshine, you’ll want to head outside. Bask in the sun by the pool, snooze in a hammock on the balcony or take it easy with a good book on the neat lawn. Do exactly what you want here, as the casa is the perfect place to unwind. Come lunchtime, gather in the back garden, throw some fish on the barbeque and feast al fresco at the wooden table.

Casa Boal is ideally placed for those who want tranquillity and is also conveniently located within walking distance to a sandy beach and several pretty cafes. For further amenities, it’s just a 10-minute drive to Caniçal with its harbour and seafront walks, supermarkets and delicious fresh fish restaurants.

Casa Boal is set in the family-friendly neighbourhood of Caniçal, a little fishing village with several beautiful beaches and a colourful harbour dotted with fishermen’s boats. From the casa it’s just a 10-minute drive to the centre of town and a short walk to Prainha do Caniçal beach. Hidden in a beautiful cove, it’s a black sand beach with clear and clam waters making it a peaceful place to swim. Afterwards, you can enjoy a bite to eat at the beachside snack bar. Another nearby beach worth a visit is Ribeira de Natal, a pebble beach with crystal clear waters. It’s the perfect beach for swimming, snorkelling and diving. After a dip in the sea take a walk along the promenade towards Caniçal centre and enjoy a bite to eat at one of the many fine restaurants serving fresh fish and shellfish. There’s also a beach complex in Caniçal featuring a swimming pool and inviting sun loungers.

While the coastline offers some great beaches, inland there are some fabulous hiking trails. Be sure to visit the Ponta de São Lourenço in Caniçal, it’s one of Madeira’s largest nature reserves and has a 3km footpath that offers walkers stunning views, and plenty of wildlife. You can also explore the nature reserve from the sea with plenty of experts offering kayaking, snorkelling and sailing trips.

But for even better views, drive 10-minutes west from the casa to Pico do Facho. Here you’ll be rewarded with stunning vistas of Machico, the island of Porto Santo and even Pico Ruivo, Madeira’s highest peak at 1,862 metres. Those with a head for heights can also head to the nearby viewpoint of Ponta do Rosto. Here you’ll be rewarded with sweeping views of the whole island.
Caniçal was once the centre of Madeira’s whaling industry but whaling in Madeira stopped in 1981 and now it’s illegal to kill the whales, dolphins and seals. If you want to learn about the island’s history of whaling, make sure you stop at the Whaling Museum in the village where you can explore life-like whale models, gruesome harpoons, 3D films and various interactive exhibits.

Funchal is the largest city on the island of Madeira and is encapsulated by Pico Ruivo and its neighbouring mountains, which look as if they have been seamlessly carved into the skyline by a Lusitanian God.

There is no better spot to start your holiday than in the Old Town, which illustrates its personality though street art, architecture and busy local businesses. There are many fine eateries, botanical gardens, a cathedral and impressive museums. Perhaps hop on the Madeira Cable Car as one of your first activities, as this will give you a great idea of the islands size.

Many flock Funchal in order to enjoy the Atlantic Coastline. This is home to its prominent harbour, where hundreds of boats and yachts, some of which enable visitors to embark on a magical sea voyage, can be found. Funchal really is a destination for lovers of the sea; as there are renowned surfing points, as well as being a great place to spot some whales.

Madeirans are also notorious for their elaborate festivals. If you’re travelling during the New Year, you will be treated to one of the world’s biggest Firework Festivals…a dazzling sight! During late February & early Mrach, you are able to witness Carnival and the streets of Funchal are lit with parades and festivities. If that’s not enough for you; the Atlantic Festival International Fireworks Competition, Wine Festival and Christmas are all noteworthy dates for anyone visiting Funchal.

There are some incredible villas on the island and we believe that we have done a great job finding them for you. Have a browse and let us know what you think.


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 Kids Ideal for Teens

Casa Boal is a great place for a family holiday, with plenty of space for everyone to kick back. Children will love being on the same floor, with bedrooms and bathrooms grouped together. The open-plan living room is a fantastic space to relax in and come evening the kids will want to lounge on the huge sectional sofa with a film. The downstairs games room is an added bonus, and they can spend hours playing billiards too. But when the sun is out they’ll want to play on the lawn, splash in the swimming pool or simply doze in a hammock on the balcony. Alfresco meals can also be enjoyed in the back garden at the wooden table.

For a day at the beach, pack the sun cream and head to Prainha do Caniçal. This pleasant black sand beach is perfect for all ages with its calm waters and beachside snack bar. But for more activity, head to nearby Ribeira de Natal. It’s a pebble beach but has fantastic crystal clear waters and is perfect for children who want to snorkel.

The town of Caniçal has plenty of good fish restaurants and children can try fresh octopus, tuna steak and scabbard fish. There’s also a whaling museum where they can learn about Madeira’s whaling history. Children will enjoy exploring the life-like whale models, gruesome harpoons, 3D films and various interactive exhibits. There’s even a replica submarine that they can climb into.
There are plenty of scenic walks nearby and a nature reserve where children can get close to nature and spot lizards, sea birds and even sea lions. Older children might also like to try their hand at kayaking or sailing in the waters of the reserve.

For more adrenalin-fuelled entertainment, make sure you visit the Santa Cruz Aquapark. Just under 15-minutes drive from the casa it offers a variety of rides and is a great place for all ages to let off steam. Children can spend time whizzing down a water slide, splashing in one of the pools or jumping on a rubber ring and riding the lazy river. After exhausting the rides, be sure to grab a bite to eat from the café then relax in the shade and watch the bird and reptile show featuring colourful parrots and lizards.
