Situated just outside 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 Ocinac is perfectly located to enjoy the peace and quiet of its coastal position, yet still be within easy reach of local bars, shops and restaurants.

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.

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 Ideal for Xmas/NY

Villa Ocinac is the perfect villa for families, with three double bedrooms and a large entertaining space for kids to enjoy. And on those hot afternoons the fantastic outdoor pool and manicured lawn 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.

    Fabulous villa, very happy here!

  • Wonderful

    on 29/09/2019

    We spent a wonderful week at this villa in September. It’s in a great location just 15 minutes’ drive to the airport in one direction and 15 minutes to the centre of Funchal in the other. The villa is right by the sea with spectacular cliff-top views from the garden and all rooms in the villa. It’s just as shown in the photos – a beautiful, spacious contemporary villa. We enjoyed our first holiday in Madeira very much and hope to come back to Villa Ocinac again one day.

  • Fantastic

    on 30/07/2019

    The villa has great equipment, but the highlight remains to be the view!

  • A dream stay

    on 14/05/2019

    The villa is located a few meters from a cliff which overlooks the sea, so that the view from the garden, balconies, bedrooms and the terrace in front of the living room and the kitchen is magnificent. One of the bathrooms has a glass wall that overlooks the bedroom, so you can see the sea whilst showering.

    The location is very quiet, in the small town of Caniço, which has all the shops you could need.

  • Exellent house

    on 04/04/2019

    An excellent property in a quiet neighborhood and a fantastic view.
