Villa Amelia is a bright, care-free holiday home where you can enjoy the peace and tranquillity of Madeira island. Located in the peaceful resort of Caniço de Baixo at the end of a quiet cul-de-sac, the villa offers peace and quiet, whilst remaining nearby the bustling shops and restaurants.

Sleeping six guests, this is the perfect place for a family or group of friends, that want the privacy of a private villa, combined with the amenities of a luxury hotel, offering access to the Hotel Albatroz Beach & Yacht Club’s facilities.

Within the villa itself, the furnishings are simple and laid-back, creating the atmosphere of a home away from home. The villa was recently redecorated, so it feels clean and fresh, ready for lucky awaiting guests! From the moment you walk in, it is easy to sit back and relax, settling into holiday mode! There is a fully-equipped kitchen, with all the appliances you need to cook some delicious holiday meals. The living and dining room is sociable, with large sliding glass doors that allowing sunlight to flood in, enlivening the space and also offer access out to an elegant balcony.

As well as the bright, sociable spaces, there are three private bedrooms; one double and two twins. With two en-suites and one family bathroom, everyone can enjoy their own privacy, with all the furnishings chosen for your comfort.

With a south-facing location, Villa Amelia tempts you to spend as much time as possible outdoors. The private, heated swimming pool is perfect for kids and adults alike, creating a relaxing atmosphere outside. There is a fabulous outdoor barbecue and space to dine al-fresco, so you can sit outside long into the evenings, maybe finishing the night with a cool class of wine on the peaceful balcony.

Guests also have the use of the superb Hotel Albatroz Beach & Yacht Club’s facilities and friendly staff. This includes a gymnasium, spa, tennis court, bar & restaurant, exotic gardens and two swimming pools. One of these pools is child friendly and heated, whilst the other is a striking world-renowned leisure pool, which was featured in 'Condé Nast Traveler’s' 116 of the most stunning swimming pools in the world...a really very special spectacle.

Villa Amelia is located in the peaceful resort of Caniço de Baixo. The villa sits at the end of a cul-de-sac, providing peace and tranquillity, yet within walking distance of all the bustling local restaurants and bars in Caniço de Baixo. The property is perched atop a sea cliff with stunning views of the Atlantic Ocean and only a 10-minute walk to the beautiful beach. Sitting just moments from the small coastal village of Garajau in the region of Caniço, famed for the imposing Cristo Rei Statue that gazes out across the Atlantic, Villa Amelia is perfectly located to enjoy the many local bars, shops and restaurants, as well as fantastic activities such as diving, golf and hiking, that are right on your doorstep.

For a wonderful golden sandy beach (imported from Morocco), head 16km east to Machico, where you’ll enjoy fantastic swimming and sunbathing opportunities. Situated in Santa Cruz, you’re also in prime position to take advantage of the beautiful surrounding pine landscapes. And with a stunning backdrop of orange houses nestled in green rolling hills, with the largest mountain on the island Pico Ruivo, inviting you to climb its peaks, you’ll love its scenic beauty. Santa Cruz is also home to many wonderful 16th century monuments as well as some delicious fine dining restaurants.

The Island’s capital Funchal is just 13km west, where you’ll love to amble along its seafront promenade enjoying a drink in one of its many beachfront bars. From here take the cable car to Monte, where you can visit the world-renowned Monte Palace Tropical Garden. And to get back to the Old Town from Monte don’t miss sliding down the steep hill on a traditional wicker toboggan! Once in the old town, be sure to visit some of the fabulous restaurants serving mouth-watering skewered meats, alongside exquisite tapas and heavenly desserts such as honey cake and passion fruit pudding. Football fans will also enjoy a visit to a museum in honour of Madeira’s best loved son Cristiano Ronaldo here.

With opportunities for outdoor activities, from 4x4 excursions, rounds of golf, mountain-bike trails and canyoning, you can pick your favourite way to enjoy Madeira’s lush countryside.

About the City

About Funchal

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.

  • Great villa, friendly and helpful hosts

    Posted by Stuart on 03/11/2018

    Wonderful villa in a lovely town with several good restaurants nearby. The hosts really went out of their way to make us feel welcome - they even provided complimentary transfers to and from the airport and allowed us to use the facilities of their fabulous parent hotel on the day we vacated the villa.

  • Beautiful house, good location and excellent service

    Posted by Matte on 14/07/2018

    The villa is beautiful and comfortable with 3 bathrooms (really a luxury for our family of 5 persons), a beautiful pool and all necessary facilities in the kitchen. Also, the location is perfect, between Funchal and the airport, in a quiet neighbourhood with some nice restaurants nearby.
    And - the service was really outstanding! We were picked up from the airport on arrival and transported to the villa. And on the departure day, we were also picked up and were able to spend some hours at the Albatroz beach and yacht club (I really recommend the salt water pool there!) for swimming, tennis and lunch before we were again given a ride to the airport. Really amazing service!

  • Exceptional

    Posted by Yuka on 02/01/2018

    Location and the given big space of the villa. Well equipped too.

  • Fantastic Villa - comfortable, peaceful, near to restaurants, snorkelling & mountain biking

    Posted by Megan on 30/07/2017

    Everything was wonderful! The villa's facilities were great - massive beds in spacious rooms. 3 bathrooms for 3 bedrooms - perfect. Kitchen well prepared. Lovely pack of groceries left on arrival - bread, cheese, butter, jam, milk & wine!
    The pool area was fantastic. Great location - several restaurants in walking distance (slight hills to contend with, like everywhere in Madeira!) & wonderful snorkelling at the Galo hotel - just a small fee to sunbathe there, but well worth it and great food/drinks there.
    Husband also used Locoloko for a mountain biking tour. Fantastic value for money - he had a great time. And the little cat and kittens who came to visit in the villa grounds - aaahhhh - lovely little Mao!
