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.

Cleaning and linen change is provided every 7 days.
All linen and towels are provided, including towels for the swimming pool.

    Très belle maison, vaste, très bien équipée, belle piscine et paysage magnifique. Seuls bémols, l'éclairage publique qui ne s'éteint pas la nuit et empêche l'obscurité dans les chambres, et les oreillers bas de gamme. Sinon c'était parfait.

    Thank you for your kind words about Theo's House!
    Sehr schönes Haus auf ca. 600 Höhenmetern gelegen. Dadurch etwas kühler als am Meer. Aber dafür gigantischer Ausblick, einen tollen Pool (beheizt bis auf 30 Grad) und eine sehr schöne Location um mit der Familie zu entspannen und die Natur zu erwandern. Wer Ruhe will, ist hier genau richtig.

    We had a great time at Theo's House, soaking up the sun and exploring this beautiful island.

    As far as we were concerned, the location was perfect. It has beautiful views and is not overlooked. The villa is spacious and well equipped. The pool is large and has been well maintained throughout our stay. The pool dome cover was on for the first 2/3's of our stay, which meant the water temperature was in the 30's, due to natural heating. The owners are a delightful couple. They met us at Theo's house on our arrival and showed us around. They left us a starter pack and were very keen that we were happy with everything and obviously take great pride in their house.

    Beautiful, spacious, very well equipped house with wonderful heated swimming pool

    Beautiful, spacious, very well equipped house with wonderful heated swimming pool. The house, garden and pool were all sparkling clean upon arrival. We paid for the pool heating to be put on before our arrival so it was ready for immediate use. For a family, this was money well spent. Good communication with owners representative. Area quiet with beautiful view and local walks. Lots of fun & interesting things to do with a young family. Safe enclosed garden. Car essential to get the most of a stay at this beautiful place.
