A 10-minute drive from the centre of Madeira’s largest town, Funchal, the elegant Villa Quinta Santa Luzia is set amongst a large area of greenery with a farm and vineyard. The house is large enough to accommodate seventeen guests and offers the use of a private pool, terrace, tennis court and much more.

Villa Quinta Santa Luzia is a special place to come together, whether you are celebrating an occasion or just want to share the experience. There is a lot to look forward to, like enjoying your meals in the sunshine on the spacious veranda, or perhaps taking an organised boat trip around the island. Parties with up to forty-five guests can be arranged and catered for, taking place beside the pool or in the billiard house.

The pool terrace offers sun loungers and a barbecue, and a covered dining terrace and children’s play area can also be found here. The property enjoys spectacular views over the bay of Funchal, and its charming gardens are also sure to impress.

The interiors are suitably grand and features a library, living room, dining room and a well-equipped kitchen, recently upgraded with high-quality appliances. A grand piano in the hall and a full-size snooker table are among the features you can enjoy during your stay.

There are three Double bedrooms, five Twin bedrooms (can be converted into Double bedrooms upon request) and a single bedroom – all rooms have a private en-suite bathroom except two adjoining rooms which share a bathroom.

All sorts of extras can be arranged, including massage treatments, groceries and excursions around Madeira. You can look forward to a welcome basket with fresh produce from the Quinta, cheese, bread and coffee – this can be upgraded with some extra treats like Madeira wine for a small charge.

Funchal has plenty to see, with its Old Town and cathedral just a short distance away. Tropical and botanical gardens add lots of colour, while the beautiful views are enhanced yet further by a trip on Funchal’s cable car, which takes you from the Old Town to Monte Palace.

This is a historic home, and as such:

  • It has probably been standing for over 100 years, which means it's full of historic value and charm but it may also have one or two quirks!
  • Some of the decor and furnishings may not be brand new, but that should not detract from your holiday experience in this unique setting that allows you to take a step back in time!

Funchal is Madeira’s biggest centre, but is still quite a small town. Positioned on the southern coast, it has a lot of charm and has a relaxed feel, with an array of pretty gardens and the beautiful waterfront giving you lots of reasons to stay outside in the sun.

Chief amongst Funchal’s landmarks is its 16th-century cathedral, Sé. Take a look inside and upwards to see the magnificent wooden ceiling. You may also want to visit the vibrant farmers’ market which takes place in the town, with its array of fresh fruit, vegetables and colourful flowers – you are sure to find something you have never tried before.

The cable car ride which takes you from the Old Town into the hills above is another must. Not only are the views spectacular, but they will take you in the direction of the Monte Palace Tropical Garden and the Botanical Gardens of Madeira, both of which are well worth a visit.

Funchal’s attractive waterfront and marina make for a cool hangout, with bars and cafés, a park and lido with an outdoor pool and bathing area. The town also has lots of dining terraces and pavement cafés, located close the Old Town’s main shopping areas. Football fans can visit a museum dedicated to Madeira’s very own Cristiano Ronaldo, while the Madeira Story Centre – near the lower cable car station – tells the tale of the island itself.

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!

Kids

Best Suited For: All Ages
Ideal for Kids Ideal for Teens Ideal for Xmas/NY

With oodles of outdoor space and stunning views, the kids will love the lifestyle that a stay at Villa Quinta Santa Luzia opens up. As well as a play area for the youngest, you have a large swimming pool, table tennis and table football, and a tennis court. Animal lovers will also love the sheep and hens that are down on the farm.

Trips around the island will also be rewarding. Everyone will love the cable car rides from Funchal Old Town, with the views of the Atlantic Ocean it affords being quite breath-taking. There is an alternative way of going back down again which they may like to try – a toboggan, with no snow required.

Funchal has plenty of parks and gardens to explore, and you will find a playroom and outdoor playground at Santa Catarina park, not far from the marina. An oceanfront lido is ideal for swimming and sunbathing, and there’s also a chance to try scuba-diving. To the north of the town, Funchal’s Ecological Park is another fine place to go wandering together, with wildlife and stunning scenery.

As the largest town on the island, Funchal also guarantees good shopping and dining options, and the familiar fast food names are present. The Forum mall is a good place for well-known stores, movies and also great views if you head up to the roof.

Guests are welcome to explore the farmland and pathways that wend their way alongside narrow leavadas (irrigation channels) that help circulate water around the Quinta.  There are many nooks and crannies to be discovered.

Reviews

  • Outstanding villa

    on 24/12/2023

    This is the most outstanding villa we have ever stayed in. We feel so honoured to be able to share this amazing place for our family Christmas. Thank you Villa Quinta Santa Luzia.

  • Very nice house

    on 23/10/2023

    Very nice house to stay in Funchal. Within walking distance of the city center and easily accessible by car to the rest of the island.

  • Great quiet place

    on 31/01/2023

    Great quiet place, loaded with history. A wonderful garden large enough to get lost within.

  • A special holiday

    on 10/06/2019

    Our stay at the Quinta has been 11 days and we have enjoyed every minute of it. We´ve eaten all our breakfasts and dinner on the spacious varandah where you have a magnificent view out onto the Atlantic sea. The kids have had such a great time – what a house to play and hide in! The parents have to run around and look for them and also have fun.

    The pool area with all the flowers around is also great. Some if us have taken a swim almost every day.

    Kestrels, black caps, robins and other birds, have been around all the time – we love seeing hearing them.

    Thanks a lot Andrew, for your kindness and hospitality, we really appreciate the tour you gave us on the Quinta. Now we are going back to Sweden and we will remember this homely place forever.

  • A Glorious Quinta

    on 10/02/2019

    Andrew, it was an absolute pleasure to meet you, hear about your family and your current projects and stay in your glorious Quinta.

  • Unforgettably beautiful and spacious villa with stunning views overlooking Funchal

    on 26/09/2018

    Luxurious traditional quinta with excellent modern facilities. Ideal for groups with plenty of bathrooms and catering space. Large gardens and estate with infinity pool and barbecue area and its own kitchen including another dishwasher! We have been going to large villas for many years as we are a walking group, and this property has been by far the best yet. A delightful stay here complemented by Andrew ,our very helpful and relaxed host who will show you around the estate!

  • Huge villa perfect for larger groups

    on 05/08/2018

    Quinta de Santa Luzia was perfect for our large family holiday. We had nine adults and seven children in our party with an age range from 2 years to 77. This massive villa and extensive grounds provided more than enough space to ensure we never felt cramped, in fact we spent most of the time trying to track people down. We have been renting villas across Europe for over a decade and this villa is by far the best.
