We are a young family, who fell in love with Madeira, it's gentle people and easy climate. Living between Madeira and London is the perfect combination and we wanted to share our pleasure with other likeminded travellers, creating Casa Maravista to welcome you to Funchal.

Maria Marques purchased this villa in 2005

Originally constructed by an English settler to the island, Casa Maravista is a blend of the traditional with a modern style, combining modern comforts with the historical foundations. Local architecture is greatly influenced by the colonial style, with many houses built for engineers and tradesmen who lived on the island from the UK in order to trade in wine and agricultural produce, benefiting from the islands climate and proximity to Europe.

A charming belvedere overlooking the seashore is very popular with our guests for evening meals and our south facing pool has delighted many a sun worshiper staying with us during the winter months.

Have just returned from a week in Madeira, our first trip to the Island, which is truly beautiful place, but this house made our holiday. The views are really stunning. The house is so bright and airy and has all facilities that you would need. The recent renovation does not leave you wanting as you enter you are turned away from road towards the sea,with large glass doors on two floors.2 of the 3 bedrooms have an amazing sea views.2 bright bathrooms further enhance the feel of this house with the most unusual and refreshing rock formation in the shower area.A well stocked kitchen and 3 separate terraces again expand this houses appeal. With original artwork throughout and a fantastic view of the port,this house is a true gem.

Thank you Maria and all who made our stay at Casa Maravista such a pleasure. We long to return next year and highly recommend this precious house for anyone looking to have a comfortable, spacious base in Funchal with the seaside as a constant companion.
This was a surprise holiday for my mother and she loved every moment, but the house really made our trip.

heavenly stay

We found ourselves in perfect heaven, centre of Funchal by the sea and absolutely private.

All was spotlessly clean when upon arrival and we really felt welcomed by our hosts.

The local fresh fruit market was down the road, where we bought Black Scabbard (Espada Preta) fish and then grilled this on the BBQ at home.

Found satellite TV channels provided in several languages (only BBC World in English), ARD, TV5 Monde and RAI Uno, as well as the Portuguese channels. A good quality surround sound AV system is hooked up to the TV and we played CDs and DVDs through it.

I often find it very difficult to get a good night’s sleep when away from home, this was certainly not the case here, it was a joy to be able to fall asleep on a comfortable bed and not worry about waking up in the middle of the night with back pain brought on by a substandard mattress.

We swam in the pool and Barreirinha sea, water temp in November an amazing 19 degrees and crystal clear.

Car hire not required at all, and note that Satnav road mapping is not available for Madeira at present. Navigating the island however is simple and the main roads are signposted. It takes only a couple of minutes to get to the house after leaving the motorway that links the city to the airport. Be prepared for the steep inclines on the island, I was amazed how many times I had to drop down to first gear.


Madeira is incredibly beautiful and the people are genuinely friendly I look forward to going again.
Recommended for: anyone!

Really enjoyed this lovely house, it was perfect for my parents, my wife and I.
Loved being able to cook outside and looking at the ships come in and out of the harbour. Truly memorable. Thanks Alan for the show-round and excellent tips on restaurants!

The property is in the historic centre of Funchal, called the 'Old Town', near many restaurants and shops. Guests can walk down the street for dinner or for a swim in the Barreirinha Sea Pools.

Nearest grocery store 100 metres away. This is a very peaceful and quiet villa in the centre of the town.

Suggestions

• Restaurants: For fish, “Gavião Novo” (best restaurant in town), “Marisa” and “Jango”. For meat, “Taberna da Esquina”. For rice “Riso”. Other popular restaurants: “O Forte”, “O Armazém do Sal”, “Sabor a Fado”, “O Tapassol”. All of them in less than 5/10 minutes.

• Pastries: “Penha d’ Águia” (2 minutes): try delicious “queijadas” and “pastel de nata”.

• Bars: “Espanada da Barreirinha” (10 minutes): for a pre-dinner drink with sunset views. “Venda Velha” and “Mercearia da Poncha” to drink the most famous Madeira drink, the Poncha. Don´t miss those with maracujá and tangerine.

• “Barreirinha” beach (10 minutes): A public beach providing a solarium at the sea level.

• “Socorro Church” (10 minutes) also known as “The Santa Maria Maior Church”:

• Rua de Santa Maria (4 minutes) – Strolling through the narrow streets you can enjoy some of the old culture that's left in this particular part of town. A lot of the old constructions still exist, some of which have been transformed into typical restaurants and bars. In addition, there is a new attraction, the “Arte de Portas Abertas”, which is a public art program to transform the Old Town in permanent outdoor art gallery, displaying over 200 works of art, by guest artists, painted on Rua de Santa Maria’s doors.

• Mercado dos Lavradores (3 minutes) – The Farmers Market is a must see! It is one of the highlights that Madeira has to offer, where all the scents, the colours, the flavours and tradition are combined to delight those who visit it.

Built in 1939, in a gracious combination of 'art deco' and modernism.

Here you will find the very best of the Island. Fresh exotic fruits, vegetables, fish and flowers in a very picturesque setting.

The flower sellers are dressed in the typical, joyful Madeiran costume in bright colours, which again add vibrancy to this magical place.

Inside, there are two floors and a huge central courtyard, where vendors engage in a direct and personalized sale of day-to-day products. You will even be allowed to do a bit of tasting before you buy (A popular exotic fruit to taste is a cross between a maracuja and a banana).

At the back section, you will find the fish market. Here you will see fish freshly caught (some are brought in still alive) from all over Madeira. Well known will be the black scabbard fish with its huge eyes, razor sharp teeth and long eel like body.

Taste, smell, vivid colours, fun and tradition!

• Forte de São Tiago (8 minutes) and the Museum of Contemporary Art - The beautiful Forte de Sao Tiago that was used to protect the city of Funchal from possible invasions is also at the old town. The fort has nice small watchtowers and sentinel boxes from the XVII century.

• Madeira Story Centre (5 minutes) – A modern museum about the history and culture of Madeira. The Madeira Story Centre will take you on a journey through the great historical events in Madeira, from the volcanic formation to the days of Dom Henriques, the first landing of a sea air-plane, Napoleon and Churchill.

• Cable Car (6 minutes) - This is an exciting way to show Madeira's hidden beauty gliding over some of the wonderful landscapes of Madeira.
