Fabulous villa, heated pool, games room, overlooking Funchal | Villa Luz - 78

Fantastic views over the city, particularly for the New Year fireworks display

With outstanding views of the town and ocean, Villa Luz, one of the larger villas in Madeira, is a superb villa with great leisure facilities, including a heated infinity pool, large solarium, games room and capacity for 12.
Located in a premium tranquil residential area of Funchal, close by you will find all the facilities you may need and easy access to town and, via the expressway, to all areas of Madeira.

On the ground floor, a very spacious open-space lounge and elevated dining area with direct sea-view is complemented by a separate private TV room.
A fully equipped kitchen features a breakfast table and TV and leads to the covered veranda with outdoor dining table and built-in barbecue overlooking the pool, Funchal and the sea.
The whole front of the villa is the south-facing solarium that features a magnificent infinity style heated pool overlooking Funchal and the ocean. Of the villas in Funchal, this one very probably provides the best view of the new year's eve fireworks and cruise ships in the harbour.
A large games/leisure room with pool table, table football and a treadmill can be found in the lower ground floor.

On the first floor is the Master bedroom with dressing area, en-suite bathroom and private balcony. A further room with a double bed and two rooms each with two single beds share the family bathroom and a full-length south-facing balcony.  All offer direct sea-views from this beautiful villa.
Off the games/leisure room in the lower ground floor is an interior fifth double bedroom (no windows to the outside) and separate shower room.
On the 1st floor bedroom landing is a single chaise longue bed with mattress, underneath of which is a pull out mattress, for the 11th and 12th persons (more appropriate for children - you can see this in the pictures).

The largest shopping centre on the island is less than a kilometre away; closer by is a large branded supermarket, shops, bank and pharmacy. The nearest supermarket and bakery/café is approximately 350 metres away and the nearest restaurant 300m away.

We had a weeks holiday in this fab villa.
<p><span>We had a weeks holiday in this fab villa. Four adults and a 20 month baby and it was the perfect set up for us all. Plenty of space for our daughter to play and a lovely terrace where we had breakfast every morning, overlooking Funchal. The infinity pool was a huge hit with us all! The location is also great too. Lovely little shop close by for basic essentials with a bigger supermarket not that far away either. There are plenty of cafes locally if you didn't wish to go into central Funchal. There a bus stop round the corner which takes you into Funchal centre or you can take a bus the other way, up to a fab view point. The check in and check out, could not have been more straight forward and the recommendations offered in the welcome pack were greatly appreciated. Fab week away and I know that we will be back!</span></p>

Huge house. Great views.
<p><span>Huge house. Great views. Lovely staff to meet and greet. Pool temperatures were as expected and paid for. We were just 3 people but house would be great for a family of up to 8. However, suggest may not be perfect for very young children as some risks as house is in a lovely elevated position</span></p>

splendide villa
Villa spacieuse et très bien équipée pour un groupe d'amis ou en famille. Très bien localisée pour organiser des ballades, des visites sur toute l'ïle La piscine pouvant être chauffée permet une baignade matinale (même si il manque quelques degrés en air extérieur). La salle de billard et babyfoot offre des soirées bien animées. Si nous devons émettre une petite remarque : un sèche linge serait un plus N'hésitez pas à louer cette villa : tout est parfait !!

beautiful, modern, spacious, glorius view of the harbor. A little better supplied kitchen would have made it perfect (spices, paper towels, garbage bags.)

Amazing venue in a beautiful and inspiring island!
We stayed in villa Luzia for a week! What a house - it is made to enjoy and have fun. It was very comfortable for 3 families, with plenty of things to do in the villa itself. It a very good point to explore the beautiful island of Madeira and Funchal (being 10 minutes away from Funchal downtown was a hit).

Beautiful villa
Had a very relaxing time in a beautiful villa with amazing views. The villa is equipped with everything you could need. 'Our Madeira' the company that looks after the villa were very helpful and gave on lot's of information about places to see etc!! A car is definitely handy to have to get around.

The perfect villa for vaccation
We was a party of 10 people and stayed for 1 week. The house was perfect and a beautiful view. Close to bus stop with short trip to city center. About 1,3 km to shopping mall with possibilities to buy clothes, shoes, food and more.... Good service from Norberta and quick replay at mail.

First class villa amazing views
Villa had all that was needed for a wonderfully relaxed time, pool was excellent but weather not so good, when we go again it will be June or later in the season.Pool can be heated so no problem with having fun. Boiler broke down whilst we were there but it was renewed the very next morning (good service). Car is a must as it is situated a bit far out of town and away from shops, resturants etc. We hired a mini bus so had access to all parts of the island. Visit the mountains if you can for some fantastic views. Resturants in Funchal are very good vzlue also tbe smaller ones. I could go on but just try it for yourself as you will not be disappointed

Um sonho
Tal e qual como esperávamos encontrar a casa com tudo o que se precisa quatro casais que ficaram simplesmente encantados vista maravilhosa sobre a cidade e Oceano Atlântico, obrigada as pessoas responsáveis por esta maravilhosa Villa Luz.

We stayed one week and enjoyed every minute!
Villa Luz was perfect, we arrived on christmas day, had no problem to find our way to the villa on our rented cars. We were met at the vills, everything was ready and the pool was heated, nice. We had a spectacual view of the New Years fireworks! Wow, some extra credits for this. We are very happy with our stay and can highly recommend Villa Luz.

Thank you very much for your kind comments and recommendation.
The villa was everything we hoped it would be and
We loved the villa and appreciated all the extra things that were there, like the exceptionally well equipped kitchen , the size of the beds and the overall quality of everything present. It was a rare occasion that we didn't have a car but it was unnecessary as the buses were frequent and the taxis cheap, It was a first trip to Madeira for the 6 of us and I'm sure we will go back, it certainly was a holiday to remember. We absolutely loved the island.
