Description

This grand traditional large air-conditioned Madeira villa, located on the eastern hills of Funchal, offers superb sea-views over the town and cruise ship harbour and wonderful sunsets. Spacious living areas are complemented by a great traditional front veranda where you can have your meals and appreciate those beautiful sea and town views, and, in the evenings, the twinkling lights of Funchal. An added and useful facility is the breakfast room located next to the fully equipped kitchen. The large swimming pool (optionally heated) and surrounding deck is perfect for families that simply want to frolic around or for those that prefer to swim lengths, and is set amongst the mature lawn and gardens. Large bedrooms on the 1st floor all lead to a south facing front balcony (again benefitting from those breath-taking views), perfect for a quiet moment or catching the sun. The fourth bedroom and en-suite is independent and located on the lower ground floor.

Madeira
Some seven hundred kilometres west of the African coast, Madeira is a stunning mountainous emerald island, lapped by the warm waters of the Gulf Stream. The first island to be discovered by the Portuguese navigators in 1419, Madeira became an important resting place on the long trip to the new world. From these humble beginnings, the holiday trade was formed and this spectacular island, which used to be the favourite place of the rich and famous, is now the preferred choice of all sorts of visitors, from those seeking year-round warm temperatures to nature lovers and sightseers, sports and active enthusiasts of all ages. Culture, history, stunning nature, a myriad of sea and land activities, added to a great foodie scene means Madeira has something for everyone. No matter where you go on the island you are rewarded by fabulous scenery, tiny villages and friendly people. With a population of over 100,000, Funchal is not only the capital, but also the 'heart' of Madeira and home to many of the islanders. This makes it a busy, chic, cosmopolitan and fun city, full of shops, shopping centres, bars, cafés and a great variety of restaurants and entertainment; a vibrant, cosmopolitan town where historic splendour and breathtaking natural beauty combine with a thoroughly modern atmosphere.

    Jolie villa avec un jardin magnifiquement paysagé et une vue incroyable sur Funchal. Nous étions 8 adultes et n'avons pas manqué de place, il y a aussi l'équipement nécessaire pour cuisiner. On peut trouver une petite supérette et une pharmacie 2 rues au dessus, un supermarché Pingo Doce à 6 min en voiture. L'accès à la voie rapide pour visiter toute l'ile est à 2 min en voiture. Les responsables de la location sont très réactifs et amicaux, ils ont été attentifs à nos questions. Je recommande totalement !

    Thank you, Fanny! We're thrilled to hear that you and your group had a wonderful stay at the villa and enjoyed the garden and views over Funchal. It's great to know you found the villa spacious and well-equipped. We're glad the nearby amenities and easy access to the motorway made your stay even more convenient. Thank you for your kind words about our responsiveness and friendliness. We hope to welcome you back soon!
    Wir waren zu dritt Anfang Mai auf Madeira und haben uns im Haus sehr wohl gefühlt. Insbesondere den Pool mit Terrasse haben wir oft genutzt (allerdings musste die Poolheizung extra bezahlt werden, aber die niedrigste Gradzahl mit 24° war für uns ausreichend). Toll war der Blick auf Funchal und den Hafen von der Terrasse aus. Zu Fuß ist man in 25 Minuten an der Bar Barreirinha (Sunddowner, am Wochenende DJ-Set) und der Badestelle am gelben Fort de Sao Tiago in der Altstadt mit Bar. Bei der Ausstattung (Leselampen, WLAN und Küchenausstattung) ist noch Optimierungspotential, der Kamin darf nicht benutzt werden. Der Kontakt mit den OurMadeira-Mitarbeiter*innen war sehr gut. Wir würden gerne wiederkommen.

    Super consigliato! Comodissimo il self check in per chi come noi deve arrivare tardi, appartamento nuovo e molto bello con splendido terrazzino. Su tutto la cosa che ci ha colpito di più è stata la posizione centralissima e comoda a tutto

    Thank you so much for your glowing recommendation! We're delighted that you found our self check-in process convenient and that you appreciated the new and beautiful flat with its lovely terrace. It's fantastic to hear that the central location was convenient for you and that you found it convenient for accessing everything. We aim to provide a seamless experience for our guests, and we're thrilled that we could meet your needs. Should you find yourself back in the area, we'd love to welcome you again!
    An amazing place to stay on this beautiful island and can thoroughly recommend staying here. The villa is very spacious and well equipped and the views are wonderful. A car is necessary as it's too far from Funchal to walk and not safe to walk on the roads. However there is a good bus service into Funchal. The only downside is that there are local cats around who are obviously used to being let into the villa and my husband is allergic to cats so we had to get help from the pharmacist. There is a very good restaurant called Zarcos which is only 7 minutes walk from the villa.

    Thank you for your glowing review! We're thrilled to hear that you had an amazing stay at our villa and that you thoroughly recommend it. It's fantastic that you found the villa spacious, well-equipped, and with wonderful views. We appreciate your note about the necessity of a car due to the distance from Funchal and the bus service available. We apologize for any inconvenience caused by the local cats and are glad you were able to get help from the pharmacist for your husband's allergies. We hope to have the pleasure of hosting you again on this beautiful island in the future!
    Das Haus liegt in einer Sackgasse die nicht ganz leicht zu finden ist. Extrem ruhig gelegen! Das Haus ist sehr groß, cool geschnitten, herrschaftlich wäre das richtige Wort. Der Blick vom Anwesen auf das Meer, den Hafen, über Funchal hat uns morgens und abends die Sprache verschlagen. Wunderschön. Es gibt natürlich auch ein bisschen was zu bemängeln. Alle drei Doppelbetten sind sehr schmal und die Matratzen haben auch schon bessere Tage gehabt. Das Team von OurMadeira war immer erreichbar und konnte bei allen Belangen sofort helfen. Tolles Team.

    Dear Mr Mitchell, Thank you for reviewing your stay at Vista Sol. We are happy to know that all the staff you dealt was friendly and helpful and that the house was as described. We look forward to host you again in Madeira. Kind Regards, António
    Very nice villa with a great view across the bay. The house is well equipped with plenty of kitchen utensils, barbecue and a sound system with some CDs. Since it's situated in a quiet residential area, you do need a car to go to Funchal and to explore the island. The only downside is that the fourth bedroom is separate downstairs with some noises from the swimming pool filter system.

    Beautiful and big home, very quiet. We spend a very good time into it. It is closed to the center of Funchal (30 mn on foot) and everything's feet for us. Near the speedway, we get evrywhere in Madeira very quickly. The trail in Madeira where very beautiful.

    Dear Ib, We are happy to hear that you found the villa super and perfect for groups and families. We hope we can host you once again in the future. Kind Regards, António

    Fantastic villa, great location, amazing views. If you are looking for a spacious villa with a lovely pool and views of Funchal bay, then this is hard to beat. We arrived in the early evening and the welcome pack containing bread, milk and cheese was just what we needed. The kitchen is well equiped with everything you could possibly need. Maybe the showers could do with updating and we had a few electrical problems but nothing major and the rep was very helpful. Theres a well stocked convenience store nearby and a very good resaurant (a long as you are OK with with steps and steep hills). Highly recommended.

    We had a thoroughly lovely stay at the Villa del Sol. The facilities were fantastic, the view heavenly and and the location superb. Slightly away from the bustle but only 5 minutes drive away. The hosts, Our Madeira, we're fantastic and took a lot of the stress of organising everything away.
