Traditional House, Peaceful, Private, heated Pool and Seaview | Casa Belflores - 9

Quaint traditional restored house dating back to 1880, a perfect holiday home.

Pretty as a picture, in a country cottage style with Madeiran personality and mature flowering gardens, Casa Belflores is located next to the end of the famous toboggan run, and benefits from superb panoramic views over the sea and Funchal town.

It offers charming accommodation with such character features as exposed stone walls of viillas in Madeira, and beamed ceilings, a tasteful up to the minute interior with flashes of colour, spacious open-plan living areas and all 'rooms with a view', not forgetting the lovely swimming pool set slightly above to benefit from those great views!

Owner Joy, a Madeira resident for over 30 years, offers this villa and neighboring Quinta d'Alegria (each with total privacy) to those wanting quiet surroundings, stunning views over the bay of Funchal and perfect location, where the famous Monte toboggan run ends. You can book both together if you need 6 bedrooms!

The well-equipped kitchen gives on to a separate dining room with views to the garden and out to sea. Built in 1880, Casa Belflores has been carefully updated and in addition to the thick stone walls, it offers double glazed traditional style windows and doors which makes the house cosy in the cooler winter months and pleasantly cool in the height of the summer.

Outside you have a choice of two separate garden areas, one at ground level filled with numerous unusual plants and shrubs which provide colour and interest throughout the different seasons, and the other at the upper level of the house where you'll find the exuberant green foliage of a number of 'silver' banana trees, and other tropical species.

A very spacious pool terrace with its own private heated pool (optional) is also at this level; the walled garden is a real suntrap as it benefits from the sunshine all day long. Both areas of the garden have terraces for sitting in to relax and unwind or to dine alfresco.

Casa Belflores is perfectly suited to a couple wishing for a spacious holiday home just for two, but equally suitable for up to five guests. The three bedrooms are composed of a double, a twin and a small single all on the upper level and complemented by two shower rooms.

The city of Funchal is a 1.5 km downhill walk, or a short bus ride provided by the half hourly bus service throughout the day an evening. A busy bakery and café and a small supermarket are both a short walk from the house.

Cheerful maid service (and babysitting) is provided by Cisaltina. Owner Joy, a Madeira resident for over 30 years, offers this villa and neighbouring Quinta d'Alegria (each with total privacy) to those wanting quiet surroundings, stunning views over the bay of Funchal. You can book them together if you need 6 bedrooms - both are longstanding favourites!

Vielen Dank für Ihre Kommentare.
Beautiful location, wonderful garden
The house is well furnished and tidy, with all the necessities and some extra niceties. It is a pleasure to sit among the flowers on the terrace overlooking the ocean. The owner has been very accessible and made suggestions about a private tour. Maid service is provided two times a week and the owners left a few started food items in the fridge.

Thank you very much for your kind comments. We are delighted that you enjoyed Casa Belfores.
Lovely house, beautiful garden, and a very friendly landlady
We absolutely loved our stay in Funchal. The house is situated above the capital Funchal, and the view from the house is stunning, overlooking the city and the sea beyond. The house was immaculate when we moved in, and we even got new sheets mid-stay. Everything you need is there, and the next bakery is just 2 minutes by foot away, so you can get your fresh bread rolls in the morning. It is possible to walk down into the town centre in about 20 minutes, or you can take the bus No. 19 which takes 7 minutes. There is also on-street parking if you have a rental car. The pool is small but sufficient, and you can have it heated for a small surcharge.

Good to know that everything was to your satisfaction. Thank you for your review.
Comfortable villa with stunning sitelines
Stunning location in Funchal. Sitting up on the hill with an overview of the city of Funchal & the cruise ship docks. Right next door to where the Toboggan runs end from Monte. The home...what can I say? It was a comfortable rustic style interior with all the accoutrements of home. Felt very safe in the neighborhood; in fact very safe on the whole island of Madeira. Coming from the US is a stretch; however so well worth it. Joy & her husband Luis were so kind & accommodating. I hope to visit them back next year.

Some lovely comments - thank you very much indeed. We look forward to your return visit.
A stunning property with amazing views
A lovely house, very clean & well equipped. Joy the owner is a superb host, very helpful & a great cook. Property is at the end of the toboggan run but did not cause any inconvenience to us at all. Bus service is very good & probably a must for going into the town centre. Would definitely return here

Thank you very much for your super review and recommendation. We hope to welcome you back.
Lovely property
We had a lovely stay. The house was as described and very well equipped, clean and well maintained. Excellent customer service from the owner and excellent service from the maid. I'd have no hesitation in recommending this property. We decided against hiring a car as the road system in Funchal looked a bit complicated, but we had no problems as there's such a good bus service. Favourite restaurant was Estrela do Mar.

Beautiful Vacation Home!
Casa Belflores was a wonderful home base for our trip to Madeira. The house is in a peaceful location with beautiful views and easy access to Funchal with bus stops nearby. The house itself is well kept and nicely decorated! Beds are very comfortable and the fireplace and radiator are great for cool evenings. We were welcomed by the owner Joy who answered all our questions and provided us with a welcome basket of wonderful provisions. The villa was perfect for my husband, myself, my adult daughter, and my two older grandsons. I would recommend this property and would stay again. The little bakery nearby was wonderful in the morning for cafe' and bread and cakes. We were able to enjoy the fireworks with our wonderful view and also to relax by the pool. Lovely!
