We have assembled a collection of eight fabulous seaside villas in the old town that are run as successful self-catering properties. Alongside this business, we launched the award winning publishing company, Funchal-Publications in 2005 that has several travel books on the Island. This complement of books, history & local knowledge is something we like to pass on to our guests, and makes each holiday experience special.

Cristina Abreu purchased this villa in 2012

Our villas each have their unique character, with the luxury of space - a sense of history and offering the best Madeira has to offer. This beautiful villa was know as 'A Casa do Ingles' the house of the Englishman and it blows you away the minute you walk through the door as it has so much land looking onto the sea with nothing in front. Below are some charming agricultural lands tended by ancient farmers that add to the unique feeling of the house. A traditional gem of a Madeiran house were seaviews can be seen from nearly every room. There is no road noise as the house does not back onto any street but only has the sea as its source of sound. Very rare to find such a large plot of land with a swimming pool all seafront in the heart of the old town of Funchal - Madeira´s best real estate location

Huge expanse of seafront terraces looking onto the Atlantic ocean with a swimming pool & garden. Located in the un-spoilt Old Town of Funchal that is such a beautiful friendly place with bars restaurants, shops & beaches. The climate is very warm here & its peaceful with very little noise. Decoration is the prefect compliment to the views and overall sense of natural beauty.

Location is Perfect!

Dear Cristina,
Now we are back home from our stay at the Beach House. I just wanted to tell you that we really enjoyed it. The location is perfect! Loved the sound of the waves, the view from the rooms and the terrace - enjoyed watching the cruise ships sail in and out of Funchal harbor. We really appreciated the bottle of wine, bread and butter and coffee and tea upon our arrival! Thanks so much for everything!

Perfect Sunny Holiday on the Sea

We found Funchal just as we left it, charming and sunny as usual. The same friendly faces greeted us in the old town and so did the great climate. By now we are devoted fans of the funchal cottages houses so now tried out Beach House and have only positives to say for this beautiful home. The house is a dream, cosy but with everything needed for a cooking holiday (nice barbecue just for us were we grilled prawns on a spit and had superb dinners al fresco). The pool is not heated but it gets a lots of sunshine even at this time of year so we did swim and sunbathe. Very peaceful and relaxing you feel totally in awe of the sea as a constant companion. There were people staying at Surf Studio which was not a problem at all, we each had our spaces and terraces and it was actually nice to see a friendly face for a drink and to swap tips on Madeira. Loved walking the Levada do Rei in São Jorge and we also did an excellent Jeep safari in the North side of the Island. House was clean, spic and span, full of kitchen things and lovely towels and bedclothes as usual. So happy to have stayed and have booked again.

It was wonderful to return to Beach House and find everything perfect just like the last time. We managed to swim in the pool and barbecue which really made our holiday, thanks for the restaurant tips we enjoyed going to the Forte and also gavião Nuevo. The wine you left for us was as usual a delight to try. Many thanks for everything, take care.

Heaven on the sea

  • 5 of 5
  • Submitted: Oct 17, 2013
  • Stayed: Sep 2013
Our family rented both Beach House and Surf Studio and had the most brilliant holiday. We could not be happier with the location, it was like a private oasis as we had a vast seafront garden with terraces and yet more terraces all right on top of the sea. We could enjoy views of the seacliff to the left, of the aqua sea below and also of Funchal harbour that looks absolutely stunning day and night. We made the most of the sea theme by going diving and also booking a big game fishing trip which is a once in a lifetime thing and we actually caught a large tuna. The tasty restaurants are just down the road in Santa Maria (loved Gaviao Nuevo if you get a table outside and also the cafe just in front of the church where we had drinks after swimming in the sea). Both houses are comfortably equipped, very pretty decoration and we had everything needed for cooking family meals in and outside on the Barbecue. Found all communication with Cristina very professional, quick and a pleasure to deal with and so was the meet and greet for taht matter. Highly recommend.

Stunning Ocean Front location, right above the sea you can see the waves breaking on the beach just below the house. Set in the charming old part of Funchal, just by the old town so no car is necessary, near the typical Portuguese restaurants and village life. You can walk to any place in Funchal from here. Barreirinha Beach and Toco Beach is just a short walk away, Funchal market, cafés, florists and the shopping heart of the island. Peaceful residential area, very rare to find a house in such a fantastic location. Deliciously quiet day and night. Warm climate year round in this area right on top of the sea in central Funchal, enjoy balmy weather all year the pool is always open for you to enjoy. An authentic and charming area of Madeira, very Portuguese and unspoilt, best location in all Madeira and Funchal.
