Villa Horizonte is based just a stone’s throw away from Ribeira Brava, making it incredibly easy for guests to soak up the local atmosphere of this charming and enticing area. Sao Bento Church is an immense religious landmark that can be found around 10 minutes away from the villa. This church is best recognised for its traditional white-washed walls, making it a tremendously authentic landmark for guests to enjoy. Inside, this monument hosts a plethora of unique artefacts and fixtures, allowing guests to deepen their understanding of this region’s far-reaching history. In addition, a lot of these pieces have also been displayed in the Royal Museum of Fine Arts in Brussels, showcasing their terrific legacy.
 
Another impeccable landmark within this area is Solar dos Heredia, a unique temple that is teeming with a selection of grandiose Baroque features. Despite being built in the late 18th century, it now serves the very modern purpose of being the area’s town hall, giving it a much more communal feel. Thus, guests now have the opportunity to take a deeper look into Ribeira Brava’s history in both the past and present. As such, this is an incredible landmark to visit if you are looking to embark on a sightseeing tour with a twist. Solar dos Heredia is located just over 10 minutes away from Villa Horizonte.
 
Sao Bento Fort is a truly exceptional landmark that is situated just over 5 minutes away from the villa. First crafted in 1708, this monument was first built to help the region’s coast from a variety of ferocious attacks. However, it suffered a tremendous amount of damage due to a serious flood that occurred in 1803. It wasn’t until 1916, when the fort was rebuilt, that it became a key landmark throughout the area. Guests must travel to the very top of this landmark and bask in the variety of alluring sights of the iconic buildings that sit below. Once you have explored everything that this monument has to offer, be sure to take a short walk into the local town and gaze out at the quaint sea views that sit before you.

THE REGION

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.

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!
