Funchal House Rental Photos and Description
Superb Location. Bakery & Restaurants Locally & Funchal and Sea 10 min by bus.
This traditional Quinta, built in 1871, was restored from ruin in 1999 into an award-winning home. Rooms are large, light and luxurious and the surrounding gardens abundant with palm trees, camellias, scented climbers, avocado trees and dazzling bougainvillea. A conservatory entrance leads to a dignified lounge and dining area, with open log fire for winter evenings and French windows opening on to the gardens and heated pool. The kitchen/breakfast room, with laundry room behind, leads to a BBQ area and shower/WC for use after swimming or sunbathing. Upstairs are 3 bedrooms; 1 double en-suite, 1 double & 1 twin and a second bathroom. Maid service is provided by friendly Ciseltina. Owner Joy, a Madeira resident for 31 years, offers this villa and neighbouring Casa Belflores (each with total privacy) to those wanting quiet surroundings, stunning views over the bay of Funchal and perfect location, where the famous Monte toboggan run ends. You can book both together if you need 6 bedrooms!
Reasons for choosing Madeira: For nature lovers, Madeira has plenty to offer, with superb vegetation, and hundreds of subtropical plants to keep the most enthusiastic gardener occupied. Part of the island has been pronounced a World Heritage protected site, this is the area of the Laurisilva forests which are located in the Western part of the island , an area well worth exploring, especially on foot. Walking the island has become very popular with visitors who can follow long trails along the islands water courses, locally known as levadas. For golfers there are two excellent golf courses, one of which is only a ten minute drive from the house. The capital of the island is of course Funchal, a town which as well as being very attractive and spotlessly clean, has many restaurants for all tastes and budgets, and an excellent variety of individual shops, in addition to several very interesting museums.
More for your comfort and peace of mind: Owner Joy, having adopted this island as her home 30 years ago and with years of experience in the hospitality industry, offers a holiday home which probably rates as the most desirable and luxurious on Madeira. Attractive teak garden furniture with table and chairs are provided, as well as sun loungers and parasols and her gardener will be on hand to keep the pool crystal clear. Maid service is provided by cheerful and very kind maid Ciseltina, who is also responsible for changing linen and towels twice a week.
