Villa Lacerta occupies a fantastic position overlooking the city of Funchal in Madeira and opens up almost panoramic views over the city and idyllic sea. This large holiday home offers families a characterful place to relax and enjoy a traditional atmosphere.

This villa has a sense of comfortable elegance throughout, with its quality furnishings and homely décor creating warm and welcoming spaces. There’s also plenty of space outside, with a beautiful garden that offers some truly spectacular views.

Villa Lacerta’s accommodation is set over three floors. On the ground floor is where you’ll find the open-plan living/dining room. This space is full of fine pieces of furniture, with wood flooring that complements the cosy soft furnishings, making it an inviting place to unwind. Two comfortable sofas and two armchairs sit around a charming fireplace, with a television to keep everyone entertained. Doors open directly onto the outside space. The classic wood dining table seats up to ten people and is conveniently located close to the well-equipped kitchen. Through the kitchen is a smaller, more intimate dining room.

To the first floor are three bedrooms, with all having sea-facing views and access to the balcony that runs along the front of the villa. There’s really no better way to start every morning than walking straight out onto your balcony and soaking up the breathtaking views. The master bedroom has a double bed, ensuite bathroom with whirlpool bath and its own sitting area. The second and third bedrooms feature a double bed each and share the use of a family bathroom. On the lower-ground floor are the fourth bedroom and another bathroom.

The gated and walled plot features a lovely garden in which to chill out and appreciate your stunning surroundings. Enjoy al fresco dining on the terrace that’s directly accessed from the ground-floor living/dining room. Steps down take you into the main part of the garden with lawns and a large, private swimming pool. There are sun loungers for lying back and relaxing, with the pool offering some of the very best views.

There are plenty of amenities close to Villa Lacerta, making it extremely well-located for stocking up on groceries, enjoying evening meals or simply seeing what’s on offer. Several restaurants are within a five minute drive, as are a pharmacy and a supermarket. Drive less than 10 minutes into Funchal city centre and an even greater choice of bars, cafés, restaurants, shops and attractions opens up.

Funchal is a lively and cosmopolitan city, with plenty to see and do. The old town area, also known as Zona Velha to locals, is one of the most picturesque areas and definitely a must-visit spot. The narrow, cobbled streets are lined with historic buildings, many of which are charming churches that date back many centuries. 15th-century Corpo Santo Chapel is one of the oldest and most beautiful found here. Close to the atmospheric old town area is Barreirinha Beach Lido.

Barreirinha Lido gives you the chance to enjoy the sea, despite there being no sandy beaches in the area. The ones you’ll find in Funchal are volcanic and made of black sand. The beach at Barreirinha Lido is a small, pebbled stretch where you can hire sun loungers and use facilities such as a Lido and changing rooms & lockers. The sea is generally very calm, making it ideal for the whole family to enjoy a dip.

One of the most popular things to do in Funchal is taking a ride on the cable car up to Monte. Marvel at the views over the city, sea and botanical garden down below as you make your ascent to this pretty area.

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.

Reviews

  • A beautifully appointed villa with fabulous views over Funchal bay

    Posted by Dominique on 16/12/2017

    Villa Lacerta is a modern villa built in the style of a traditional quinta, and the antique furnishings added to the traditional feel of the place. The pool and the garden were wonderful to relax in , and the view over Funchal Bay from the various terraces was stunning. It was very spacious.We were a party of five and it had more than enough space for us all, and was also very well equipped. It is a little further out, but this is no bad thing as it meant that the area was quiet at nightime (unlike other areas of Funchal that are plagued by barking dogs and traffic noise). We found it an easy drive into town and there is also a bus stop a few minutes walk from the property. There is also a very good restaurant nearby, near the church. Otherwise there is not much else in the immediate locality as it is a relatively quiet residential neighbourhood.

  • Fabulous Villa for fabulous holiday

    Posted by Patricia on 06/10/2017

    Stayed here 22nd to 29th September, 6 of us on family holiday for father/father-in-laws 75th Birthday! What a lovely property, loads of space, fabulous view, great management team who helped find us when we got lost on arrival! Loved the surrounding areas and Funchal in particular ... age ranges were from 17 to 75 and it was a perfect week thank you

  • That was great

    Posted by Adeline on 24/09/2017

    We enjoyed greatly our stay in Funchal. Madeira is a fantastic place for vacation, and the house was top. Particularly the view on Funchal and on the sea. We didn't get tired of the view, of the sunsets always different and the illumination of Funchal at nightfall. The sea is really seen from every bedrooms at that's a plus.
