Beautiful villa
<p><span>We had our best holiday ever in this excellent villa. So spacious, luxurious and comfortable in every way. We enjoyed the garden, the pool house and the beautiful views over Funchal and the Atlantic sea. Even if the charming city centre is just a short walk away the surroundings of the house is tranquil and very relaxing. We are planning to come back soon.</span></p>

Lovely villa in Funchal
<p><span>If you are looking for a luxury accommodation when visiting Madeira this is it. Villa Luzia is a house with a wow-factor and includes everything you need for a perfect holiday. I loved the spacious rooms, the pool house, the comfortable beds and the breakfast area outside the kitchen with full view over Funchal. Madeira is such a beautiful island with wonderful levada walks, nice people and a cosy atmosphere down town. Also excellent service from Linda and the crew. Thanks!</span></p>

Thank you very much indeed for your great comments.
Excellent villa, we really enjoyed our stay
<p><span>The villa is extremely well appointed with everything you would need for a holiday of two families totalling 10. With 6 older children (17- 22yrs) we were close enough to the night life for them, and far enough away for the adults to enjoy the views from the villa over looking the sea. The villa was extremely spacious with more than enough space for us all and the games room was perfect for team competition, so great fun!</span></p>

Thank you!
60th birthday celebration with all the family.
<p><span>We had a wonderful stay at the villa. We found everything that we needed for a wonderful family holiday. The villa was spotlessly clean and beautifully presented. There was plenty of space inside the house and as we were three families there was still plenty of room . The bedrooms were very comfortable with luxury matresses and bedding. We made use of the swimming pool and there were plenty of toys for the children to play with in the pool.[the pool was a little cool] . We found the information provided by the rental company to be correct and Norbetta from the company was excellent she met us at the agreed times and always responded to our emails promptly I would have no hesitation in recommending this property or company to a friend or relative based on my experience with them. Norbetta also found a cook for us and this proved very successful. The only thing we had a slight problem with was pulling out on to the steep road when leaving the property but we soon overcame this having someone keep a look out for us to ensure it was safe. Thankyou for a wonderful holiday Regards Heather</span></p>

Perfect location. Lovely views.
<p><span>This is a marvelous house for visiting Madeira! So spacious &amp; confortable. And the beds...oh the beds! Scrumptious! The views of the city &amp; the water were fantastic. It's was such a pleasure to wake up to that view daily. The house is wonderfully equipped from kitchen to bathrooms to game room. We were two families with several young adults &amp; no one got in anyone's way. The location was great to walk into the city or grab a cab home if it was late. I could not imagine a better place to stay for a visit to Madeira!</span></p>

Fantastisch!!
<p><span>Van alle gemakken voorzien, heerlijke bedden, huis nog mooier dan in de beschrijving, brandschoon. Grote benedenruimte met poolbiljart, tafeltennistafel etc. Prachtig zwembad, fantastisch terras met adembenemend uitzicht. Bovendien een geweldige service voor en tijdens ons verblijf door Norberta, Carolina en Linda van Our Madeira. Op loopafstand van het centrum (wel steil), erg leuk stadje. Kortom een vakantie om nooit meer te vergeten. We waren met z'n achten van 2 tot 63 jaar. Iedereen heeft alleen maar genoten.</span></p>

melbourne PICTURE PERFECT, FABULOUS STAY IN LUXERY VILLA IN FUNCHAL, MADEIRA
What a great stay we had in this very well equipped huge villa. It had everything we needed, the games room was a fun place after a day by the pool or at the beach, we enjoyed drinks on the balcony/outdoor area with amazing views of Funchal town, and the huge bedrooms with the most comfortable beds. It was a short walk down to the old town where there are fantastic seafood restaurants. Our arrival was seamless and Carolina was terrific with her run down of the Villa. I would highly recommend a stay here and encourage you to visit Funchal and Madeira, Portugal. Thanks.

A great review. Thank you very much and for the recommendation.
A beautiful luxurious and spacious villa
Lots of space inside and out. Especially loved the views, the games room and the swimming pool (although a little bit cool). All rooms well presented and comfortable (beds much too soft for me). Outside furniture of which there is plenty good quality and very comfortable. We didn't use the kitchen but it was equipped exceptionally well.

Luxury, space and remarkably high standard
The web site does not do justice to the space of the site, or the sense of seclusion, overlooking the harbour. We found it difficult to get the car through the gate initially, but after a few times this becomes less of a problem. Walked down to Funchal a number of times, only walked up once, next time we went to the market, got a taxi up to the house for 5 Euros including a tip - taxis everywhere, including just outside Supermarket. Is there a downside? Some traffic noise in the early evening, and the surrounding dogs can be a problem in the evening while they settle down. Understand property is on the market for Euros 2.25M, which gives you an idea of the extent and quality of the property - it may not be available for let after this, so take the opportunity now. Backup from Norberta (understand she is the agent for the property) was excellent! Highlight of the trip? Lunch on the beach near Cabo Girao, only accessible by cable car. Good food, good atmosphere.

Thank you very much for your 5 star review. Glad you enjoyed the house and our service.
Fantastic house within walking distance of the center of Funchal
What a fantastic house! Great location with brilliant views over Funchal, yet within walking distance from the restaurants (although with quite a climb back to the house). The house is huge, laid out on three floors with a separate building for the swimming pool (connected to the main building with an underground tunnel). The communications from property management where excellent, with clear summaries on what is happening next and quick responses to inquiries. When we got to the house our host Linda was waiting for us and made a great introduction of the property. Upon arrival you need to make a cash security deposit, which I think is fully understandable, considering all the artwork and delicate items in the house. The enormous games room in the basement is great! There is an excellent pool table and also a table football game and a full size ping ball table. There is pretty much everything in the house, cannot really think of anything more to wish for.

Outstanding holiday villa
Villa Luzia was everything we hoped for and more! Plenty of space for two families with one 8 yr old and one 16 yr old to chill out. Bedrooms are spacious and comfortable, great views from the balconies and verandah over Funchal, beautiful spotless swimming pool and a well equipped kitchen. The villa is only 10 minutes walk (downhill) into Funchal and a very reasonably priced taxi back! Would love to return to this amazing property, until next time ...
Morag Fraser   Oct 2017
Beautiful living
Breathtaking waking up in the morning with a full víew of Funchal and the sea. Spacey rooms with lovely, comfy furnishings. Only a ten minute walk to the City with malls and groceries stores. In-house pool with gym and shower. TV with suround system available and the feeling about this accommodation over all is a luxury one! Small amenities makes the difference! Very charming!

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).

Fantastic place for holiday
Beautiful, stunning house with fantastic view. Very comfortable with perfect location, close to the town centre. We spent there amazing time with friends and our families and felt very sad when had to come back home. Linda was very friendly, supportive and responded immediately when any help was needed. Thank you Linda very much to make our holiday amazing! We would like to come back to Madeira and if possible maybe stay again in the same immaculate house. Many thanks. Wioletta

Excellent property - it has everything you want to a very high standard.
Excellent property. Everything was to a very high standard and lived up to our expectations. The beds were extremely comfy and the quality of everything was good, even down to the pots in the kitchen which seemed to be brand new. The games room was also excellent and well used by our grandsons as was the pool. Only down side was that the pool was on the cool side which deterred some of our group. It certainly wasn't the 30 degrees that the thermometer read! Linda was extremely helpful and friendly and we would certainly recommend this villa.

Thank you for your super comments and taking the time to submit them. In response to your comment about the water temperature of the swimming pool, when the air temperature is high, as it was during your stay, the water temperature will always feel cooler. We must assume this is the reason for only a 4-bubble review, which is a shame. Never mind ☹
Stunning!
This villa is super luxurious and has every possible amenity. Spacious, charming, comfortable, amazing views, good value, great managers (thanks Norberta and Linda). Love it!

Beautiful villa, spotlessly clean, great location
The villa was everything you could ask for and very true to the pictures. It had beautiful views out over the sea but within a 15 minute walk of the town and excellent choice of restaurants. The Villa itself was massive, well thought through with everything you could need to have a very comfortable stay, it was spotless and thoughtfully decorated. The swimming pool and general facilities were fabulous. We had a great welcome from Linda and Norberta, there was a useful guide with villa instructions, useful maps and guide books available and an appreciated welcome food pack. All in all nothing you could fault and we look forward to returning in the future.

Family Vacation to Funchal
House is even better in person if you can believe that. We are pretty fussy and the house could not have been better or cleaner. Even the 15 and 19 year orders with us were not bored.

Outstanding stay in Funchal
We (4 adults and 4 kids) had a wonderful stay at this outstanding property. The house is equipped with all you can imagine and even more: eg huge playing room with pool billard, table tennis, chess, cards table, etc., a fantastic swimming pool house, in all bedrooms luxury and very comfortable beds, wonderful views. A big thank you to Norbert and Linda who took perfectly care of us.

Absolutely stunning
We stayed at Villa Luzia for a week in November, and it is simply stunning. The views from the decking over the sea and city are fabulous, the photographs do not do it justice. The facilities are fantastic, we made full use of the kitchen and the BBQ room. The games room with pool table, table tennis were great fun. The pool is very well maintained and clean, as is the whole villa. All the bedrooms are en-suite, spacious and beautifully decorated. The villa is located close to the town, walking down hill to the town centre is easy, but we would recommend a taxi back up the hill, as it is very steep. For anyone thinking of visiting Madeira, Villa Luzia is the perfect base for exploring the city and island, and we would thoroughly recommend it.

Beautiful Property - Would highly Recommend
We stayed at this villa with my parents in November and we were very pleased with our choice. It looks exactly like it does in the pictures. All of the rooms are lovely and it has great facilities including a games room and a pool. The views are stunning and it is either a short(ish) walk to town or a very cheap taxi ride away. If we are to come back to Madeira we would book this property again.

Luxurious Home Away from Home!
The property was everything we could have asked for and more! It was definitely home from home. Villa Luzia is beautifully presented and every room decorated and furnished to an exceedingly high standard. The facilities are second to none. The kitchen has everything any chef could need in triplicate! The indoor BBQ room is also fully equipped without any need to use the kitchen. The lounge is a very restful room in which to relax and read. We all thoroughly enjoyed the games room and pool house. We would definitely recommend this Villa to our friends and family. Hopefully we will return.

The best villa we have stayed in so far
Exemplary property and service which made our stay in Madeira unforgettable. We all loved the pool and the children were able to master pool, table tennis and table football in the most luxuirious surroundings.
