Overview

Gaula Villa Rental Photos and Description

Three-bedroom modern villa with pool and all the facilities

Villa Verde is one of three villas situated at Quintinha au Sol, TV's 'My Place in the Sun'. They are newly built and privately owned. Quintinha au Sol is a small rural property located in Gaula which is about 300 metres directly above Santa Cruz and less than 10 minutes from the airport. There are spectacular views over the bay of Abra, towards the Deserta Islands and to Ponto Sao Lorenço, the eastern tip of Madeira. At the same time Gaula is only twenty minutes from the centre of Funchal.

The villa is ideally situated for walkers and golfers - the Gaula levada, which is at the eastern end of the 'Levada dos Tornos', is less than 5 kilometres away and the two internationally famous golf courses, Palheiro and Santa da Serra, are both less than15 minutes by car.

With large balconies, terraced areas and mature gardens surrounding the villa, there is ample choice of seating and relaxing areas.............ideal for al fresco dreaming, drinking and dining!

Quintiha ao Sol is licensed for tourism under the strictly-regulated Madeiran 'Alojemente Locale' scheme (AL). The scheme requires holiday villas to conform to high safety, quality, service and insurance standards. For example, in the interests of safety, the villas only have electric equipment; there are no gas appliances. Mosquito nets are fitted to all bedroom windows. There is a WiFi internet connection and Satellite TV with 200+ channels

About Madeira Island Direct

Madeira Island Direct have been managing holiday rental properties on the island of Madeira since 2006. We only look after apartments that meet the most exacting standards - most of which we have looked after on behalf of private owners for a number of years.

Guestbook comments from the manager

We picked the three bedroomed villa which proved to be superb accommodation. An attractive pool contained within the patio was very popular with all the family. We also had wonderful sea views across the bay. The nearby Championship Golf Course proved to be the icing on the cake. Overall a terrific holiday!

Great late escape

  • 5 of 5
Last minute autumn break and the villa lived up to all expectations. Negotiations promptly handled by the manager and housekeeper waiting to meet us 15 minutes after we left the airport. The villa itself has everything - as you would expect at the price - whilst the scenery out towards the end of the island is an addictive view! Kids loved the pool which was clean. Lovely private garden are where you can sit in the shade and read. Steep approach, but I suppose that gives you the views, so being lazy we took the car regularly. Ask the housekeeper about the different places to eat locally.

Car: recommended

A considerable amount of investment has recently been made in the sea-front areas in Machico (15 mins by car), Santa Cruz (7 mins by car), Canical (20 mins by car) and Canico de Baixo (10 mins by car). All provide excellent swimming and sea front facilities for holiday makers; throughout the winter, the sea temperatures (18-22 degrees) are often 2-4 degrees higher than the air temperature. Costs for refreshments and lunch at these centres, are very reasonable by European standards, even in Funchal a lunch (dish of the day and pudding with a glass of wine and a coffee) can be had for €5.50. A 30 minute coast walk can be enjoyed at Santa Cruz where there is also an impressive modern aquaparque near Sao Pedro.

If you enjoy walking, you will be spellbound by the unique experience of the famous Levada walks, a number of which can be found in the area. There are excellent walking alternatives on this enchanting island - most are accompanied by a vital element; water, and an ancient Forest which has survived from the tertiary era; the Laurissilva Forest (UNESCO World Heritage site). These factors make walking on Madeira island totally unique and the hillsides in this locality are an excellent place to start.
