Traditional villa, A/C, heated pool, sea and Funchal views | Vila da Portada

Funchal, Portugal



Refurbished to an extremely high level to include air conditioning, under-floor heating and a heated pool, this traditional Madeira house is set in an elevated position with panoramic views of Funchal and ocean. Being located on the road to Monte, which is only a couple of kilometres away, you can watch the famous Madeira wickerwork toboggans going down the hill nearby!

Conveniently all on one level, the contemporary open-plan lounge, dining and kitchen lead via a naturally lit corridor to the three bedrooms, all of which feature air conditioning and under-floor heating, cable TV and benefit from the views to the ocean. The master bedroom has an en suite shower-room and the other bedrooms share the family shower-room.

The whole frontage is the south facing solarium where you will find the heated infinity pool and sun-beds and the covered built-in barbecue and outdoor dining table, which overlook the wide garden below. Being only 500 metres below the leafy village of Monte, Vila da Portada is perfectly located to combine a holiday in Funchal with being close to nature and walking in Madeira. With everything you might hope for in a holiday rental, vllas in Madeira do not come more appealing than this!

Glorious views, stunning pool and deck area
The property description and pictures are accurate, this is a very impressive property, all newly done, very well equipped, spotlessly clean and with splendid views over Funchal and the ocean. We stayed as up couple, so it was a very generous size for the 2 of us. It might be a bit cramped for 6, if the weather isn't good, there is plenty of outside space, but the lounge and kitchen area would be a squeeze. We had quite a lot of rain, so were sadly forced indoors more than we would have liked. We loved the outside terrace, with the pool and BBQ, as well as the roof top seating with chaise longues. It took us about 40 minutes to walk into the centre of Funchal, but it was extremely steep, so we relied on the bus, (convenient bus stop outside) and taxis. On 2 nights, we walked to very pleasant local restaurants, Rustico and Vasca da Gama and also made use of the BBQ on a couple of evenings. The property is well located for getting out of Funchal too, without going through the city centre, very close (we walked) to Monte, with its beautiful gardens and the cable car and with easy access to the mountains and motorway. We would definitely recommend this property.

Lovely villa in Monte, Funchal.
We spent a very enjoyable ten days at this property - it was just as described in the details and had all you need for your stay and very clean, including a mid week clean and change of bed linen and towels.We mainly ate out although it was useful to have the BBQ. It was nice to be able to walk to O Rustico's just down the road from villa and we also enjoyed meals at Olives and Espettus (our favourite). We didn't have a car and although buses regular did feel a car is a must. Would definitely recommend this villa to anyone visiting Madeira.

Thank you very much for your comments and recommendation and we are very happy that you enjoyed your stay.
Fantastisch! Nur zu empfehlen!
Wir hatten eine traumhafte Zeit auf Madeira. Die Wohnung liegt oberhalb von Funchal mit super tollem weiten Ausblick. Die Fotos zeigen das Objekt genauso schön wie es ist. Unterhalb des Pools ist noch eine Art kleiner Garten mit Kräutern, die man auch nutzen darf. Die Ausstattung ist top und die Einrichtung sehr geschmackvoll. Zwei große Bäder mit Regendusche und Kommoden. Wir sind herzlichen empfangen worden und haben uns sehr wohl gefühlt. Wir kommen auf jeden Fall wieder!

Madeira, dreams come true
Beautiful new house, very well equipped with all you need for a enjoyable stay. We loved the big views over Funchal and the sea. Right from the house you can walk up the hill. There is also a little restaurant near by, where you can eat very cheap meat and fish. And it is not only cheap, it is also very very good!!! For us holidays on Madeira is a dream coming true! Thanks a lot to Linda, Norberta and Ricardo, who did all to make our stay unforgettable! We will be back soon!

Thank you very much for your comments and recommendation and we are very happy that you enjoyed your stay and our service. We look forward to seeing you soon.
Great villa with excellent facilities.
A very well equipped villa, with great views over Funchal. The villa has been renovated to a very high standard with attention to detail and I would definitely stay here again. The welcome pack on arrival is a nice touch and the management company make the arrival and departure very easy. The villa is not within walking distance of Funchal, however the local bus service runs past the villa and operates a good service, taxis are approx 10 euro from the town but do not pick one up from the bottom of the toboggan run to go into town as they are charge double. A great place to stay and recharge the batteries.

A must stay
A fantastic place, living area was nice, kitchen had everything you needed, bedrooms were really comfy. Outside BBQ was great and swimming pool was lovely. Pub just down the road and used the local bus service which was easy and cheap.

Superbe séjour à la villa da portada
Nous avons passé une semaine à la villa da portada sur les hauteurs de Funchal à Monté. C’etait Parfait ! Un peu difficile à trouver mais très bon accueil a l’arrivee. La villa est récente, très propre, 3 belles chambres à coucher, 2 salles de bain, tout le matériel dans la cuisine, lave vaisselle, machine à laver, sèche linge....tout ! Nous avions même le petit déjeuner pour le premier jour. La piscine est super, nous avions demandé de la chauffer à 24 degrés (120 €), salon de jardin, banquettes, barbecue (un peu long à démarrer) et une très belle vue sur Funchal et la mer. La villa est située tout près des fameux traîneaux en osier. Nous avons adoré Madère, des paysages de fous, des bananiers, des palmiers partout et des fleurs à profusion. Le propriétaire nous a proposé un restaurant le premier soir : parfait avec une navette qui vient vous chercher et vous ramène. Nous avons loué un minibus par lui et c’etait Très bien. Bref excellent séjour dans cette villa, n.hesitez pas, allez y !

high standard holiday accommodation

We had a very relaxing and refreshing stay. The house is at a very high standard, it was spotlessly cleaned and decorated at a beautiful modern, understated interior design. It was wonderful to return from our various trips over the island to this place where we could enjoy the view of the endless ocean by day and the lights of Funchal by night. We felt very well looked after by the agency on arrival and when checking out. - There is a road of medium size going round the property with some traffic on it (a few metres below the level of the property) however we did not feel disturbed by it and the house itself is very well insulated, so during the night it was very quiet. - We also took advantage from the busstop right in front of the property and on two occasions walked uphill to Monte (quite steep, but not longer than 20 minutes), using the little road behind the house. In Monte one then can take the cable car down to Funchal.

Some lovely comments, thank you very much. We are pleased that the house and location was to your liking.
Lovely stay and a great house

We had a great stay at this beautiful villa. The house was really clean and everything was dealt with in a really professional way. We enjoyed the heated pool even though the weather was not all that warm. We also barbecued quite a lot. The views over Funchal are amazing, much better in real life than in the pictures. Also the location close to Monte is nice. I would definitely recommend this villa!

Urlaub zum Genießen

Alles war wie so schön wie auf der Website abgebildet und beschrieben. Besonders begeistert waren wir von der hochwertigen Bad- und Kücheneinrichtung, den guten Betten / Matratzen, dem Pool und dem hervorragenden Service. Es war der perfekte Standort um mit dem Mietwagen die Insel zu erkunden. Die Restaurantliste haben wir abgearbeitet und können wir nur weiterempfehlen.
