Situated in a quiet neighbourhood in the pretty coastal village of Garajau on the south coast of Madeira, Villa Madere is the perfect abode for those looking to relax in style, with all the amenities of Garajau on your doorstep. And with wonderful hiking trails, spectacular diving opportunities and a golf course, all within a few minute’s-drive from the villa, you will have plenty of activities to enjoy within easy reach.  

Sleeping up to eight guests, this modern dwelling has been recently refurbished, offering guests contemporary living in stylish, comfortable surroundings. With plush wooden floors, exposed brickwork, wooden beams, traditional stone fireplaces and fantastic pops of colour, you’ll love its unique style. On the ground floor you’ll be greeted by a lovely open lounge with split level dining room and a large well-equipped kitchen, providing a fantastic space in which to entertain. There is also a games room on the lower level, ensuring adults can keep up with their fitness regime and younger ones can challenge each other to a game of table football.

Three of the four delightful bedrooms can also be found on the ground floor, each of which are adorned with fresh calming décor and modern furnishings. The remaining bedroom resides on the first floor benefiting from views out across the glistening Atlantic Ocean and the neighbouring Desert islands.
The outside space here at Villa Madere is a peaceful haven. Surrounded by a traditional stone wall affording guests convenient privacy, this little oasis is bursting with beautiful local flora and shady palms, providing quiet little areas in which to relax and unwind in. With a refreshing outdoor pool surrounded by comfortable seating, guests will love to cool off under the hot Madeiran sun. A separate cosy Jacuzzi area is the perfect spot for enjoying a glass of wine as the warm evenings draw in. And with an attractive outdoor dining area, eating al fresco, perhaps cooking up a delicious Madeiran feast on the barbecue, is a must.

Situated just moments from small coastal village of Garajau in the region of Caniço, famed for the imposing Cristo Rei Statue that gazes out across the Atlantic, Villa Madere 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.

Take a bracing walk along the Ponta do Garajau headland, which boasts spectacular views of the Desertas Islands on a clear day. And nestled at the base of the Garajau cliffs, accessed by cable car, you can enjoy a quiet little bay located within the Garajau Natural Partial Reserve, which thanks to its extraordinary biological richness and its crystal blue waters, offers unparalleled conditions for snorkelling and diving.  

For a wonderful golden sandy beach (imported from Morocco), head 15km 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 15km 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.

There are a wide range of activities on offer on the Island, from a quiet round of golf just 2km from the villa, to exhilarating 4x4 excursions across the Island, but one of the most breath-taking has to be a glorious hike along some of the 2,092 kilometres of narrow stone irrigation channels known as levadas, criss-crossing Madeira's lush mountainous countryside into the Laurisilva forest. One of the most scenic is the Levada do Caldeirao Verde, which meanders four miles past leafy glades and plunging ocean views before emerging into a picturesque clearing sprinkled by a 91-meter waterfall. Just spectacular! And for the adrenaline junkies amongst you, try your hand at the many mountain-bike trails that plunge and ascend this beautiful landscape, or throw yourself into some canyoning, which will have you sliding over cascades and abseiling down waterfalls.

For the more serene, a wine tasting tour is a must. Head to Camara de Lobos, a lovely traditional fishing village 18km west for a free Madeira wine tasting experience at local producer Henriques & Henriques. Or perhaps the black lava bathing pools of Porto Moniz, 58km north, will provide the perfect day trip, where the meeting of Atlantic waves and a prehistoric volcanic eruption has formed spiky rings of black lava rock along the waterfront turning it into one of the world's weirdest and most beautiful swimming baths.

However, you like to spend your holiday, Madeira’s year-round climate and stunning natural scenery, from majestic mountains, rugged cliffs, lush forests and delightful flower gardens, will provide you with everything you need to enjoy a wonderful holiday experience.

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.

Villa Madere is the perfect villa for families, with two double and two twin rooms and a large open plan entertaining space for kids to enjoy. There is also a lovely games room with table football for kids to enjoy. And on those hot afternoons the fantastic outdoor pool and jacuzzi, set within beautiful walled gardens, is the perfect playground for the whole family.

Beaches - Pretty Garajau Bay is just minutes from the villa. Accessed by cable car, kids who are good swimmers will love to snorkel with the vibrant sea life that is abundant here as part of the Garajau Natural Partial Reserve. However, the more family friendly Machico beach is just 14km away, with its beautiful golden sand and plenty of amenities.

Santa Maria de Colombo Boat trip - Looking straight out of ‘Pirates of the Caribbean’ the Santa Maria is a replica of Christopher Colombus’s ship that kids will absolutely love. The boat leaves twice a day for a trip out to sea looking to spot dolphins and whales. In the summer the boat will often drop anchor so you can jump in to the sea to cool off.

Whale Museum, Canical - The whale museum or Museu da Baleia is around 20 minutes-drive past the airport in a sleepy little fishing village. With audio sets (for adults and kids), it’s a great little place for a visit.

Cable Car ride, Funchal – This 20-minute cable car ride is a fantastic way to see the beautiful Island of Madeira from above and children will love spotting things as you travel up the mountain. The Monte Gardens at the top are also a great way to cool off in the Summer as they are so shaded, they also boast some wonderful ornamental gardens.

Toboggan ride, Funchal - If you take the cable car to the top of the main hill in Funchal one of the traditional ways to come back down again is by a wicker toboggan. Children will love this hair-raising activity!

Outdoor pools - Madeira’s outdoor pools are spectacular. The most famous, at Porto Moniz, are a lovely collection of natural swimming pools formed by volcanic lava. There is also a children’s pool here.

The Madeira Theme Park, Santana – This magnificent space is dedicated to the history, science and tradition of the Madeira Islands. A replica of the Monte train, traditional oxcarts and nets, a traditional Santana house, a windmill, a maze and even a lake are some of the Park’s fantastic attractions.

São Vicente Caves - The caves at São Vicente were formed when the lava from the volcanic eruptions thousands of years ago forced the hot liquid through the rock. Now it is possible to walk through some of these passageways which give a fascinating insight in to the geology of the area. There is a great museum and 3D cinema as part of the experience.

The Madeira Skywalk, Cabo Girão - Stand on the glass over 560 metres above the sea for draw-dropping views down the cliffs.
