Perfect villa, perfect kitchen, perfect pool, perfect island

A beautifully appointed villa with fabulous views over Funchal bay.
Villa Vista Sol is a modern villa built in the style of a traditional quinta, and the antique furnishings added to the traditional feel of the place. The pool and the garden were wonderful to relax in , and the view over Funchal Bay from the various terraces was stunning. It was very spacious.We were a party of five and it had more than enough space for us all, and was also very well equipped. It is a little further out, but this is no bad thing as it meant that the area was quiet at nightime ( unlike other areas of Funchal that are plagued by barking dogs and traffic noise). We found it an easy drive into town and there is also a bus stop a few minutes walk from the property. There is also a very good restaurant nearby, near the church. Otherwise there is not much else in the immediate locality as it is a relatively quiet residential neighbourhood.

Fabulous traditional villa with panoramic views
<p>We stayed at Villa Vista Sol for one week at the start of October. We chose this villa as it was one of the view villas that could sleep 8, had a pool and was within walking distance of Funchal. The villa is well appointed with everything you could need. A welcome pack with breakfast provisions was left for us which was a lovely touch. We arrived quite late and didn't have time to go shopping. We came to Madeira to walk the levadas. A rental car is recommended. All the levadas we walked were within a 45-60 minute drive of the villa. We hired a van through OurMadeira. They use a company called Atlantic-rent-a-car who were competitively priced and very friendly. The villa is located about 2km from the old town. It is fairly easy to walk down to the old town but it is very steep and challenging to walk back up. A taxi up from the old town cost us 9 euro.(google maps is slightly out of date as a few of the shortcuts are no longer there). During our stay we didn't find any conveniently located shops nearby so went to the Continente supermarket in Caniço. Zarcos restaurant is highly recommended and has great views over Funchal. While the interior was a little "dated" for my taste, I appreciate that it is representative of a more traditional Madeiran house. This didn't spoil our stay in any way. Two little things that were a slight annoyance. The mattresses are VERY hard and I did not sleep well most nights. We layered the blankets provided on the mattress and they made it bearable. It was unseasonably warm at the start of October and there are no fans or air conditioning in the villa. The outside bedroom gets particularly warm. In summary, The villa is in a good location for walking into Funchal. It is easily accessed by the motorway for visiting attractions outside of Funchal by car. It has stunning views of Funchal and is set in a very quiet location. It suited us well as a large group of 8 young adults.</p>

Thank you very much for your 5 star review and we are very happy that you enjoyed your stay. I am sorry you did not contact us during your stay in regards to fans, as we would have been happy to supply these. Your comment about the hard mattresses has been passed on to the owner, although beds are a very personal thing. Thank you once again.
Fabulous Villa for fabulous holiday
Stayed here 22nd to 29th September, 6 of us on family holiday for father/father-in-laws 75th Birthday ! What a lovely property , loads of space , fabulous view , great management team who helped find us when we got lost on arrival ! Loved the surrounding areas and Funchal in particular ... age ranges were from 17 to 75 and it was a perfect week thank you

That was great
We enjoyed greatly our stay in Funchal. Madeira is a fantastic place for vacation, and the house was top. Particularly the view on Funchal and on the sea. We didn't get tired of the view, of the sunsets always different and the illumination of Funchal at nightfall. The sea is really seen from every bedrooms at that's a plus.

We are delighted you enjoyed your stay and hope you come back and visit again.
Stunning house
The photos of the house show what a stunning setting it has, above Funchal, and the house is large and beautiful. Everything was there that you might need. The organisers, Our Madeira were brilliant, and replied to any enquiries straight away. They also recommended a car hire company, who were very efficient. The house is in a hilly part of town, so unless you're very fit you probably do need to hire a car.

Everything was perfect
Villa Vista Sol is the perfect location for holidays on Madeira: The Villa offers amazing views to the bay of Funchal and over the Atlantic Ocean. The villa and their rooms are very spacy, the furniture is pretty classic. The surrounding (São Gonçalo) of Villa Vista Sol is very nice and quiet. It is the perfect starting point for trips to Monte and his beautiful parks and gardens. And it is only a short way to the city of Funchal. Last but not least I can say, Madeira is one of the most beautiful places I have seen. I'm sure, we will come back to Madeira and Villa Vista Sol. Many thanks to Linda and Norberta from "Our Madeira" for the perfect organisation and to Carlotta for the friendly and well-organised check-in and check-out.

QUIET PARADISE
Villa Vista Sol was an excelent choise for our holidays--> beautifull views to the ocean and over Funchal :) Interior of villa was like the museum (good meening ) --> very spacy, clean, a lot of different paintings / pictures at the walls, stylish oldfashioned furnitures, but the same time modern etc... Beds were very comfortable and the pool good:) WE realy have enjoyed our holidays:) Thank you :) Best regards! Iluta & family ( Latvia )

Perfect house in a quiet area
When we arrived late at night we were welcomed by Carlotta at the Villa. And after a tour of the house Carlotta even showed us the way to the local Supermarked (open until 23!). A perfect start for our family. The house is beautiful and the view is impossible to describe. The pool is perfect for families with children and maintained weekly. We had thought we could walk to Funchal, but the road is narrow and dark. But bus 40 leaves 5 minutes from the house and a taxi from Funchal is only 10-15 €. We recommend the Whale Safari with Madeira Wind Birds where we saw dolphins, a turtle and whales. A lovely house, good service and a very quiet area.

Muito obrigada pelos seus comentários e ficamos muito contentes que tiveram uma optima estada na Villa Vista Sol.
Beautiful Castle
Super-Castle (about 400 m²)with a brilliant view over Funchal, the Harbour. Big natural pool and a lot of flowers/trees. Inside the Castle: fantastic! Ideal for all people, large families, groups (except: for elder persons with no car and limited personnel mobility) If have been there you never want to stay again in a normal Hotel, Villa. Even the weather was fine!

What lovely comments. Thank you very much and we are very happy that you enjoyed Villa Vista Sol
Madeira, My love
Our stay was not the first one in Madeira and is not going to be the last! The islands green nature is wonderful, the food in restaurants top. The villa where we stayed with 3 families (6 adults and 4 kids) is just as made for a group we had. There is 4 bedrooms all well equipped and with lot of light, kitchen has everyting you need for cooking. The pool is with great view over the city Funchal. Its easy to get to the town: 20 min to walk or with taxy (7 euros) or by car. Without any regrets: 5 stars. Thanks Our Madeira staff and house owner Bernardo! We are happy and coming back one day :)

What an absolutely lovely review. Thank you so much for your kind comments and recommendation. We certainly hope you will come and stay again.
Nice getaway on the edge of funchal
We had a very pleasant stay in this house, relaxing by the pool every second day and taking a trip either to funchal or one of the nice hikes every other day. The view is stunning and the house is very cozy and close to the old town and to the highway but still in a very quiet area. The family renting it out are very friendly and helpful people. Recommended for: Families with Young Children, Sightseeing, Girls Getaway, Tourists without a Car, Adventure Seekers, Age 55+, Romantic Getaway, Families with Teenagers.
