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 breath-taking natural beauty combine with a thoroughly modern atmosphere.

    Olá Our Madeira! The team at Our Madeira work very hard and were totally amazing! Villa Aquarela was a perfect location for our family holiday. Our children were super happy with the private heated pool and the views were amazing. Restaurants are 5 minute walk along Estr. do Garajau. The 155 bus to Funchal departs on the same road, opposite Dom Pedro. There is also a fruit and veg store called Frutaria Banamadeira if you need to stock up on supplies. Otherwise you can take a taxi to Pingo Doce Super Cancela - larger supermarket, costing around 5 to 7 euro each way. Bruno on -351917842416- (local taxi-6 seater-very helpful). Cristo Rei is a 20 minute walk, turn right from the front gate to the end of the road, use the stairs to get to R. dos Emigrantes, which then meets at Estr. do Cristo Rei. We thoroughly enjoyed a well deserved family break and my wife and children would love to visit again one day, as would I. Muito obrigado.

    We loved to stay at Villa Aquarela. The stunning view, the beautiful infinity pool, the games room, the spacious and extremely clean and well equipped house made these holidays unforgettable. The communication with the OurMadeira team was great from the beginning to the end. Check in was very easy and we appreciated the personal welcome and tour of the property. We recommend to opt for the optional pool heating which allowed us to swim every day. Restaurants and supermarkets are close by. We highly recommend Villa Aquarela for a relaxing stay.

    Outstanding villa in a prime position on the cliffs above Garajau beach. Really handy location, close enough to drive into Funchal and perfect for setting off in a hire car to explore the island. The villa is extremely spacious, the photos do not do it justice. The pool was lovely, we opted to heat it. My daughter really enjoyed it. Loved the location, quiet and an easy walk to the shops. and restaurants. We are already planning our return trip to this wonderful house.. The Our Madeira team were alwas very helpful. Thank you ����

    We stayed here for a week in August, 2 adults and 2 teenagers and had a great time. The property is very spacious and comfortably has space for 6 if it's full, there are loads of places to relax, whether inside, outside in the shade or sun. Pool is great and views to the ocean are amazing. The walk up to Garajau is around 10 minutes, with a variety of restaurants, small supermarket and greengrocers. We also used the Bolt app to get a taxi into Funchal is often under €10, and apart from Sunday morning which took a little longer - had cars available no longer than 15 mins. Fully recommend, and hope to make it back again.

    Thank you for your kind words about Villa Aquarela!
    This Villa occupies a fantastic location overlooking the ocean and just fifteen minutes drive from Funchal. It is very private, not overlooked, although part of a local community well serviced by shops and restaurants. The villa is perfect for a family with teenagers, three bedrooms and lots of games rooms for table tennis, billiards and a home gym as well as a plunge pool. Everything was arranged efficiently by the managers of the property and the whole holiday at the end of February was a delight with glorious early summer weather.

    The Our Madeira team exceeded expectations on every level. First off, The Aquarela is a visually stunning yet practical property. The location puts all the basics you need within walking distance. Our Madeira was very organized and easy to deal with. They also arranged our car hire and transfers to the airport, which was very helpful. We would book this property again, in a second.

    Amazing views, spacious villa

    We spent a wonderful week in this villa. The location is great with breathtaking views. The house is in a residential area, very quite, still close to restaurants and shops. The garden is amazing, full of beautiful flowers. The pool was a must for our kids, nice size and deep enough. Norberta was very kind and helpful with everything we wanted. Thank you. We often used the entertainment area in the evenings and the hometrainer was a big plus for me. Starting the day there while watching the morning ferry to pass by. We loved to have breakfast outside on the terrace before we left for our levada walks. We recommended this villa already to many of our friends and we will be back for sure.

    The Villa itself is very spacious - two very nice en suite rooms perfectly suited four adults and baby. There was a third room with twin beds probably best suited for kids rather than adults. Good facilities and very relaxing to hang out. The views: amazing. Full sea views with sunrise and sunset; and actually sea view from most of the rooms in the villa. Typical day was to take a 5-10 min stroll up the hill to the local market and bakery for fresh bread, orange juice, eggs and of course the fantastic pastries. Then back to villa for breakfast on the terrace. You really need a car here if you want to explore - we did and enabled us to see quite a bit of the island. So typically we would go out for the day then either dinner at the villa or at the local restaurants, which whilst not much choice were perfectly decent. Tips: we paid for pool heating which was probably a waste as we weren't swimming that much and I doubt it made a huge difference (but with a baby we didn't want to chance it). We stayed one week and got transfers with our Madeira and hire car for four days - this seemed to work really well for us - could not fault it and the transfer is worth the money in my opinion. Other tip for driving: go slow! It is very steep and windy. Baby was car sick. Also we tried to drive to Monte and the car was not powerful enough to climb the steep road, so don't try it in a small car full of passengers! Would I stay again or recommend: yes. We loved the local feeling of Garajau, and it was ten minutes to Funchal by car, few minutes to supermarket. Thanks Our Madeira team!

    Aquarela was perfect; location, amenities, space, views, - I could go on and on. Norberta at check-in was helpful and available for questions throughout our stay. There are restaurants and shops within walking distance and a full-service mercado just a short drive. Don't miss out on this gem. You won't be disappointed.

    Fantastisk beliggenhed, fredeligt, men samtidig i gå afstand til restauranter. Meget stor og flot villa, rent og pænt og med dejlig pool, udekøkken og skøn terrasse med storslået udsigt over havet.

    Great comments. Thank you very much.
    A perfect holiday home.

    We were two couples so villa size was a little overwhelming. For a family with kids it would be magical. Sadly weather not warm enough to use pool since we are wimps! Our absolute joy was the outside space and the glorious view and sunsets over the ocean. Location was good, mainly quiet area apart from the dog choir at night ! We only ever managed to get the bus once to Funchal it was really scary ! Taxis from outside hotel Dom Pedro and the whole island were very reasonable and a great way to see the island. Eating out locally was good. The villa was spotless & well managed, transfers excellent, contact with team easy and effective. Would definitely return. Thank you

    Thank you
    Tolle Aussicht
    Da das Haus am Ende der Zufahrtsstrasse steht gibt es keinen Verkehrslärm. Es ist gut eingerichtet und genügend Platz zum Entspannen. Bei Fragen war Linda sehr hilfsbereit. Störend war nur, dass in jedem andern Haus Hunde sind, die bis Abends spät und in der Nacht bellen. Die Insel selber ist sehr schön und interessant, speziell der Wechsel innerhalb kurzer Distanz von Sonne zu Regen.

    "Thank you very much for taking the time to post your review. Madeira has lots of dogs and I am sorry if they disturbed you. Usually they are not a problem for Villa Aquarela.
    Wonderful villa with great view
    We had a perfect week in this wonderful and very well equipped villa. We loved the great view from all rooms onto the Atlantic Ocean and we liked the balconys , terraces , we very much enjoyed the pool! The children liked the games room. The villa Aquarela is the perfect place for a relaxing holiday! We would highly recommend it!

    Villa Aquarella

    Bonjour, Voilà maintenant près d'une semaine que nous sommes rentrés sans encombre chez nous et je voudrais vous remercier pour la qualité des prestations que votre agence nous a fournies. En effet que ce soit pour le transfert de l'aéroport, la mise à disposition à une heure tardive de la maison très confortable, la propreté dans laquelle nous l'avons trouvée, la parfaite concordance avec la description et les images sur le site internet, la réactivité à régler au plus vite les petits problèmes constatés, la facilité de location du véhicule et son prix tout compris, tout a été parfait. Merci encore et bonne continuation Bien cordialement, G.André

    Merci Beaucoup! Thank you for your lovely comments. We would love to welcome you back again one day.
    Perfect house in a good location
    The house was even better and bigger, than we expected from the pictures. We were 6 adults, we used and enjoyed every corner of the spacy house. Preheated pool was a must for us, and it worked perfectly. Linda, who meet us at the house, was very kind and helpful. Big sunny barbeque area. Everything just modern and in good condition. Highly recommended.

    Thank you so much for your super 5 star review. We are delighted you enjoyed your stay and the house, and hope to welcome you back again at some point in the future.
    A great villa on a beautiful island.

    A fabulous villa, clean,tidy and well maintained with everything you could possibly need provided for you. Positioned with an easy walk into the local shops and restaurants, so although we had a car we seldom used it on an evening. Would definitely recommend this villa.

    Ocean front villa - Garajau, Madeira
    This villa was as described. It is spacious, but also has quiet comfortable areas to relax. Everywhere was clean and beautifully presented. The kitchen is well equipped; we stayed for 2 weeks and used most of the domestic appliances including the cooker and washing machine. There is a games room downstairs with snooker and I recommend the table football...great fun! The views are simply breathtaking, with nothing to obscure the gorgeous blue sea. The pool was clean and maintained and the gardens appear to have recently had newly planted flowers and shrubs. . Each terrace is a delight to use and the owners have put a lot of thought into providing the essentials for their visitors. It is about a 10 min walk to the shops and restaurants which cater for your every need. We found the local bakery and coffee bars offered delicious cakes bread etc. The restaurants in Garajau are of a high standard with a good selection of fresh fish + meat. We used both the bus and taxis with ease and found local people helpful and friendly. The owner has a handbook which was very useful. I would recommend this villa the location is excellent and the facilities made our stay in Madeira a delight.
