There are some local restaurants, bakery and a small supermarket. The Botanical Gardens are a must for garden lovers, especially as they are so close to the villa, approximately 500 metres. However it is an uphill walk all the way, but the local bus service is frequent and on your door step. Only a 5 minutes walk are the lovely Orchid Gardens and Quinta das Boa Vista, definitely worth a visit.

The cosmopolitan city of Funchal with its Fruit & Vegetable Market, Fish Market (the best morning to visit is Friday), Marina, Harbour, Theatre and many shops and restaurants is only a kilometre away.

Coast/Beach
The coast is about a 10 minute drive by car. Madeira's beaches are all pebble, with the exception of a few which have black sand and one with golden sand in Calheta, 30 minutes west of Funchal. Sea access for swimming is excellent along the south coast, either from the beaches, the many seafront hotels or from the 'lidos' which, for a small daily charge, offer swimming in sea water pools and protected sea areas.

Golf
Two championship courses, Palheiro (3kms) and Santo da Serra (15 kms) offer challenging golf amongst spectacular scenery. Alternatively you may like to take the ferry to the nearby island of Porto Santo and try the course there!

Stunning villa!
Absolutely amazing. Even the furniture was stunning! The cleaners must be the best in Madeira! It’s the cleanest house I have ever stayed in. Spotless! We did spend about £14 a day on taxis though. The walk to town is too steep. But overall taxis are cheaper and less stress than hiring a car. The owner is a lovely lady too. My wife wants to live in this villa!

A great review. Thank you very much. Glad you enjoyed the experience!
Wonderful house with all amenities
A lovely house that we would love to return to. It was spacious, fully equipped and with a great view over Funchal. We especially enjoyed the fact that it was olcated in a non-touristy area, with a school across the street and a small bakery and fruit 'n vegetable store within walking distance. Each evening we caught the local bus to go downtown for a meal. Very convenient! We went hiking along levadas, took the teleferique to Monte and the traditional toboggans down. We also visited the Jardín Bótanico and Mercado de Lavradores. Over all, a very good visit to Madeira! The only thing we would like to address about the house was the lack of softer mattresses on top of the beds, other than that it was perfect.

Ideal for watching the famous New Year Fireworks
Our group of eight found this villa to be in a great location with beautiful views and ideal for watching the famous New Year fireworks. Convenient for shops, good take-outs, buses and taxis. It is modern, clean and well-equipped. The swimming pool was super. Carlota the owner was friendly and very helpful. We could eat inside and out, plus BBQ.

Wunderbare Villa mit herrlichem Blick
Wir hatten eine sehr schöne Zeit im Casa da Pinheira I. Der Empfang war sehr freundlich. Die Villa ist prima ausgestattet. Der Pool ist super gepflegt und wurde von unseren Kindern bei jedem Wetter ausgiebig genutzt. Der Blick auf Funchal und den Hafen mit den Kreuzfahrtschiffen ist traumhaft. Fußläufig ist ein Mini-Markt, ein Obst-/Gemüsehändler und eine leckere Bäckerei zu erreichen, was sehr praktisch ist. Funchal und Madeira haben uns begeistert und Casa da Pinheira I ist als Unterkunft absolut zu empfehlen.

Perfect vacation in Madeira for our big family
We had an excellent holiday in Madeira, and the house was great. We enjoyed the stay very much. As you informed, the house had everything inside, we didn´t missed anything. I really hope that we can come back again. We were 9 persons and a baby and there was plenty of room for all of us. And we specially liked the pool area where we spend most of our days. The breakfast time with the view was faboulous. Hopefully we can come back some day.

Thank you very much for your review. As it was all very positive I am assuming that you hit the 2 star rating button in error! Easily done. Looking forward to your return visit.
super Villa, geräumig, traumhafter Blick ******
Wir haben die Villa mit 6 Personen (3 Paare) bewohnt. Wegen der vielen schönen Schlafräume und Badezimmer kam jeder auf seine Kosten. Es ist alles sauber und hübsch eingerichtet. Der Wohn-Eßbereich und die Küche sind sehr großzügig. Alles funktional und bestens ausgestattet. An dem großen Holztisch auf der Terasse, mit einem grandiosen Blick auf Funchals Hafen mit den Kreuzfahrtschiffen, haben wir uns jeden Morgen die köstlichen Brötchen schmecken lassen. Der Bäcker und ein Minimarkt sind schnell zu Fuß zu erreichen. Das fast halbstündige Feuerwerk, von der großen Außenterasse aus bestaunen zu können , war einfach nur traumhaft. Der Pool ist groß und entspannend. Es gibt genug Liegen und Sitzmöglichkeiten, auch an jemanden, der sich mal zurückziehen möchte, wurde gedacht. Unsere 2 Autos parkten wir in der angrenzenden Garage. Die Übergabe und Abnahme durch Carlotta war freundlich und klappte reibungslos. Vielen Dank auch für den Willkommenskorb mit der leckeren Grundausstattung. Die Lage war für uns ideal. Mit dem Auto lässt sich von hier aus die gesamte Insel super erkunden. Es gibt aber auch eine Bushaltestelle direkt vor der Tür, also auch mal eine Alternative um nach Funchal-Stadt zu gelangen. Den Orchideengarten erreicht man auch zu Fuß...der 200 Meter Aufstieg sind zwar etwas mühselig aber auf jeden 'Fall lohnenswert. Wir können die Villa absolut zu einhundert Prozent weiter empfehlen Für uns alle war es ein schöner unvergesener Urlaub im sonnigen Madeira.

Perfect Stay at Casa da Pinheira
Thanks a lot. It was a perfect and wonderful time in your house and in Madeira. The big and light house gave us everything we needed for a relaxing holiday. Ideal for 10 people and great view over the city. The pool gave us every afternoon a refreshing bath after long and hot hiking hours. We felt all the time so comfortabel and I think it was the best choice to spent the madeira time in your house. We will for sure come back!! At least we will recommend the house to everybody coming to Madeira! Thank you!

Hard to beat location and perfect for a group
As a group of friends going walking together on the Island Villa Pinhiera suited us perfectly. Built on overlapping levels the property seemed deceptively spacious and afforded plenty of privacy between the bedrooms. Whilst only one room was en-suite, there seemed to be enough bathrooms to go round. The huge kitchen had plenty of equipment and enabled us to cook several nights, and the wi-fi kept everyone amused uploading the days photos. The pool was (just) warm enough for hardier folk to swim in march, and the view from the house is hard to beat. An easy, safe, but steep walk into town in 15 minutes takes you to many bars and restaurants - these are mostly near the bottom of the cable car - something useful to know on your first night. Coming home there never seemed to be a shortage of taxis. Funchal is a delightful city to stroll around withe everywhere being walking distance. Sightseeing wise apart from the many options for walking, we thought the lava caves at Sao Vicente well worth the drive. For authentic Poncha go to Bar no 2 - old town facing the ocean.

Thank you for your super review and I am glad that Casa Da Pinheira was the perfect choice for you. It is ideal for small or large groups as there is plenty of space both in and around the villa, and very close to town. Great to see you found Bar Noº 2 for the famous local drink of Poncha! Hope to welcome you back again one day.
Great, spacious villa
Lovely villa, very spacious and lots of rooms so could host a large number of folk. It has a wonderful view over Funchal and there is a reliable, reasonable frequent bus service into town. We hired a car which we probably didn't need to as we found we spent most days around Funchal. There is also a bakers/ mini supermarket/ bar within walking distance. The kitchen is better than most villas and there's lots of equipment, dishes plus a good microwave/ dishwasher. We were a party of five (3 adults and 2 kids, almost 4&2). The kids loved the pool especially the shallow area for splashing. My only caveat would be for children who have just learnt to crawl or walk as there is a few stairs.

A super 5 star review - thank you very much. It is a great house and very well equipped, so a home from home, and with the advantages of lots of space and those wonderful views over the capital and Atlantic Ocean.
Fabuleux séjour à funchal
Nous avons passé 11 jours dans cette magnifique villa, située sur les hauteurs de Funchal. Nous étions 9 : 6 adultes et 3 adolescents. La villa correspondait aux descriptifs de l'annonce : villa spacieuse, très calme, propre, bien équipée, avec une vue fantastique sur Funchal et l'océan. 8 à 10 mns du centre-ville en voiture. Très bon accueil. Nous recommandons sans réserve cette location.
