In luxury Palheiro Village, Heated Pool, Discounted Golf | Casa Bela Vista

Funchal, Portugal


This magnificent 3 bedroom villa is situated on a south-facing hillside and boasts superb views of the ocean and the hills surrounding Funchal. It is conveniently close to the Palheiro Village Forum with its 18 meter heated swimming pool. Key benefits of staying in the village is that you receive a 30% discount on the green fees at Palheiro Golf, discounts at the Palheiro Spa, and on food and beverage in the Club House and Hotel Casa Velha do Palheiro.

Only 10 minutes by car to the hustle and bustle of Funchal and minutes away from the pebble beach of Garajau, you are conveniently close to everything including restaurants, bars and shopping, yet nestled in the peace and tranquillity of the village. Luxury, comfort and practicality shaped the design and specification for the properties in Palheiro Village, which offers a relaxing and convenient base from which to enjoy the pleasures of Madeira.

The living/dining area is open plan, airy and bright with a beautiful wooden floor. It has two comfortable sofas, open fireplace, cable TV and DVD player. The round dining table seats 6 people and is adjacent to the terrace which also has a dining table. The spacious kitchen is fully equipped and well designed with table and chairs, gas hob, electric oven, fridge/freezer, microwave, dishwasher, washing machine, It has French windows which open onto one of the two terraces.

There is plenty of outside space. There are two terraces, one directly outside the kitchen and lounge with a dining table - ideal for dining alfresco! The second terrace has a water fountain feature and 2 sofas. The garden has a small table and chairs, sunbeds and a Jacuzzi.

Perfect for family and friends, and situated next to the 18 metre heated pool, Casa Bla Vista is one of the nicest villas in Madeira in which to appreciate those breathtaking views. Garajau is 5 minutes by car and has a choice of restaurants, supermarkets, bakeries and a bank. 10 minutes by car is the village of Caniço which is larger than Garajau and also has a good choice of restaurants, shops and a shopping centre. The capital Funchal is 10 minutes by car. Just outside the entrance to Palheiro Village is a bus stop with regular services. There are many beaches around the island. The closest to the village is at Garajau, approximately 5 minutes by car. It is a pebble beach (as are the majority of beaches in Madeira) and is reached by a cable car. There is a restaurant on the beach serving lunch and dinner.

    Stunning villa

    We thoroughly enjoyed our two week stay at this stunning villa. The view from almost every window is sublime - there is even a spectacular view from the shower. The villa has everything you might need and the kitchen in particular is very well equipped with everything you might need. Weighing scales, cake tins and sharp knives are not usually found in holiday homes so is was a pleasant surprise. The villa is beautifully furnished with beautiful furniture and artwork so it really does feel like a home from home. The garden area is delightful and plenty big enough for our toddler to run around. We loved the terrace outside the kitchen for drinks and the odd meal - if only the weather had been kinder! We were three generations (grandparents, us and our toddler son) and the villa suited us all perfectly though there are lots of hard steps so we had to keep a close eye on our son (and my elderly father!). The pool could hardly be closer so we didn't miss having our own pool at all. In fact it was far safer with a toddler in tow. There is a nice honesty bar and children's play room at the pool too and it was nice to be able to swim in a good sized pool rather than a smaller private one. It was almost always either empty or just one other family/couple swimming. We loved it! We will hopefully return. We loved being so close to Funchal as we have previously rented villas in Calheta. We also enjoyed the use of the clubhouse restaurant and hotel spa. The only improvements would be cushions for the outdoor seating (there were cushions for the loungers) and a decent coal BBQ. The gas BBQ was a little disappointing. But these are minor niggles. We love madeira and this villa made out holiday very special. The photos simply do not do it justice.

    Great house
    This house is fantastic, we had a very nice stay there. You can find everything necessary in the kitchen, the bedrooms have a wonderful view as well as anywhere in the house. Beds are really comfortable. Cleaning is done frequently. The swimming pool (heated) is very big and warm. We loved swimming in the evening, we were alone in the swimming pool most of the time. Being close to Funchal makes it very easy to get anywhere in the island quickly. Supermarket is only 5 minutes away. I hope of coming back soon.

    Beautiful house in beautiful setting
    The house has everything we needed, and even more. It is more beautiful than what the pictures show. The views are amazing. It is perfectly located, not too far from Funchal but quiet, and very convenient to visit the island. Linda was very helpful. We hope to come back soon to Cala Bela Vista.

    Thank you very much. We certainly hope to welcome you back one of these days.
    Fabulous views of ocean & Funchal
    Great location to explore the Eastern end of the island. Car needed. 10 minute drive to Funchal. Note there are many restaurants that provide shuttle service to & from their establishment. Hot tub was appreciated as it was cool in February. Good location of this particular unit within the complex as it is very close to communal pool (unfortunately not heated, so did not swim in February), Condo is lovely but living room furniture needs updating. Very lumpy & uncomfortable.

    Thank you very much for your feedback and we will certainly take a close look at the bed linen, although I must say that this is the first negative comment we have had. It is a shame that for only this reason you gave the villa 3 stars.
    Lovely villa in beautiful setting with great views

    We enjoyed our stay in the villa a lot. The villa is beautifully furnished. All three bedrooms and the spacious living room have a wonderful view over Funchal. The kitchen is equipped with everything you could wish for and we even got some essential groceries and a bottle of wine as a welcome gift. We enjoyed using the big communal pool with the kid's playroom as well the private jacuzzi and the wonderful garden. It was our fourth time in Palheiro village, first time in this lovely home and we will hopefully be back in the future.

    Wonderful stay

    The house was perfect for our little family stay in Madeira. Location is great as well, we wouldn't have changed anything !

    Lovely villa - lots of space and a superb view
    A fantastic villa with everything you could want and excellent standard . The views were breathtaking. Ideally placed for exploring this beautiful island. The staff on the site were very helpful and even a bought round a bottle of bubbly for my wife's birthday! Very impressed with the amount of times the villa was cleaned and linen was changed. Would definitely recommend this villa to others and looking forward to returning again.

    Thank you so much for your super 5 star review and for taking the time to post it. We are delighted that everything was to your satisfaction and look forward to your return visit.
    An ideal villa in a beautiful location.
    Stunning property with amazing views. A very clean and well maintained villa with very spacious rooms. The staff were very friendly and couldn't do enough for us. Linda was a very welcoming face upon arrival and Norberta was kind enough to offer us an extended check out time due to our evening flight, which was very much appreciated. Location is a 15 minute drive from Funchal so not necessary to hire a car if you want a relaxing week (without any driving!) and a taxi into Funchal is only 15 Euro one way, if you need to visit the Supermarket etc. We would have no hesitation in renting this property again or recommending it to friends and family. Plenty to see and do on the island and we look forward to visiting Madeira again soon. The only negative point was the opening times of the golf restaurant, the resort literature implied the restaurant was open later on Tuesday evenings, so that was the day we chose to eat there. We arrived at 7.45 but were informed last orders for food were 7.30. Thankfully they still agreed to serve us (after we had walked up the steep hill to get there!) but the food wasn't really that great. I ordered the calamari and it was very over cooked. Apart from that one minor negative point, we cannot fault anything else with our stay, it was fantastic.

    Many thanks for the lovely review for Casa Bela Vista. We will forward your comments regarding the restaurant,and the opening times. Relieved to see that you were served after your uphill walk! See you next time. Linda & Norberta
    What a magnificent villa and beautiful setting! The view from the villa is really wonderful. Endless miles of sea and lots of sun. We felt miles away from our home near Paris. The villa is really well equipped - we had everything that we needed from towels, sunbeds, toys, and even a cot and high chair for our baby. Moreover, it was really comfortable - great beds, comfy sofas, English television. Everything is done to a high standard. The property was very clean and well maintained. Though we did not need heating during the day, having the under-floor heating at night was a real luxury (we were there in December). And Palheiro Estate is a perfect place for a holiday. Really well managed. We were staying across from the Village Forum. This was perfect for us - our three year old daughter loved playing in the toy room there. And I was happy to have access to the beautiful pool but not to have it right in the garden of the villa (where she might wander on her own). Norberta made sure we had all we needed throughout our stay - even helping us get dinner on our first night of arrival. She was a pleasure to work with organizing our stay. We can't wait to come back!

    You are absolutely right, it is a beautiful villa, in the perfect location with the best views! We are so pleased that you enjoyed your stay and the comforts of Casa Bela Vista and look forward to welcoming you again. Thank you for taking the time to post your review. Norberta & Linda
    la casa es fantástica, cómoda y con unas vistas increíbles de Funchal y el mar. Estuvimos 7 personas y teníamos todas las comodidades posibles. Todos los días desayunábamos y cenábamos en la terraza y las chicas hemos pasado horas en el jardín. La piscina está "pegada" a la casa por lo que estábamos en 4 pasos. las habitaciones, los baños, la cocina......todo es espectacular. Estuvimos muy a gusto.Gracias

    Cette villa de luxe est parfaite. La décoration est de très bon goût, les pièces spacieuses et la vue est sublime. Nous avons été chaleureusement accueillis par Linda. Merci à Norberta et Linda d'avoir toujours répondu aux multiples mails que nous leur avons envoyés ! Petit conseil : il n'est peut-être pas utile de louer une voiture car les taxis peuvent vous faire visiter l'île et cela peut vous économiser un stress terrible dû aux nombreuses rues étroites et aux côtes impressionnantes. En plus, notre chauffeur parlait français et nous a servi de guide, c'était très agréable.

    All was perfect, tout était parfait
    Beaucoup apprécié notre séjour dans la villa, nous étions 5 et avons regretté de ne pas avoir loué une semaine de plus. Parfaitement équipée, très propre, au calme, tout était réuni pour passer une bonne semaine. La piscine commune est superbe, et très peu fréquentée, et c'était pourtant la première semaine d'août. Nous avons été très bien accueilli et avons eu tous les renseignements nécessaires. C'est rapide d'aller à Funchal, le supermarché est proche, bref, nous reviendrons dans cette villa lors d'une prochaine visite à Madère. Much appreciated our stay in the villa, we were 5 and had regretted not having rented one week more. Fully equipped, very clean, calm, all was there to spend a good week. The swimming pool is superb, and is attended very little, whereas it was the first week of August. We were very well welcomed and had all the information needed. Driving to Funchal is easy and fast, the big supermarket is near, sure we will return in this villa the next time we come to Madeira.
