Amazing villa right on top of the Atlantic ocean, with the luxury of unlimited sea views with swimming pool and tropical garden. A very peaceful location right on top of sea in the most sought after location in all madeira - The Old Town of Funchal. 2 Beautiful houses in a charming central location in the old town of Funchal madeira, the climate is warm and sunny year-round. Together both houses sleep 6 people (4 in the Beach House and 2 in the Surf Studio). No car necessary everything is a short walk away including Funchal fruit, vegetable and fish Market, the old town restaurants and cafés and the beach. A dream location very very rare to find. The house was renovated into a chaming holiday home. Very quiet and peaceful with unlimited sea views, outside dining possible all year with comfortable furniture and BBQ.

We recommend making the most of the BBQ, fresh fish and meat are just nearby in the market were you can walk to, why not try the delicious Vinho Verde (or some Madeira with ice the new drink on the island). The swimming pool gets sun all day, and this part of Funchal is by far the sunniest in all Madeira making it the perfect winter home. The houses are fully equipped to make your stay very comfortable be it for a week or for many months. All the attractions are nearby, golf, swimming, diving, walking in the mountains and glorious gardens.

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.

CENTRAL YET AWAY FROM IT ALL!

  • 5 of 5
had a very enjoyable stay at this house. Really impressed with the location which was both central near the old town restaurants and shops, but when we got home to our pool could feel like we were in the deep countryside as the house is very secluded and sheltered. The sea in front is beautiful and it was a joy to have all our meals outside with only the seagulls as companions. Very intrigued about a bird that has a haunting cry, we made use of the spinach and tropical fruits growing in the garden and grilled fish from the market on the barbecue. We appreciated the welcome pack on arrival and found the staff very friendly (as all the people in madeira are). We rented some bikes and rode down from the Pico at the top of the mountain and also enjoyed the dolphin watching. Next time when we come back (for sure to Beach) we will try to go big game fishing. Highly recommend this house.

PERFECT SUNNY HOLIDAY ON THE SEA

  • 5 of 5
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.

HEAVEN ON THE SEA

  • 5 of 5
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.

EXCELLENT STAY AT THE SURF STUDIO

  • 5 of 5
We stayed in the Surf Studio for 8 nights in September 2012.

The apartment has only recently been converted. The apartment was well equipped and everything was still new. The apartment was clean on arrival. The best aspect of the apartment were the endless sea views out of the windows and it was extremely private.

The views were spectacular. The terrace provided great views over the harbour and was perfect for sunbathing by day (it gets the sun all day long) and drinks/BBQ in the evening. We decided against going for afternoon tea at Reids Palace as we thought there was no point in paying for their views when the Surf Studio's were better!!

The location was excellent and only a 5-10 minute walk into the Old Town. Compared to other parts of Funchal, the walk was relatively gentle (but not recommended for those with mobility issues). The Old Town is the best part of Funchal and the Fort Restaurant and Riso come highly recommended.

We would certainly recommend this apartment. It is also ideal for larger groups if taken with the Bungalow.

Cristina was a pleasure to book with. She provided everything we needed during our stay. We certainly hope to return in the future.

OUTSTANDING SUNSHINE VILLA

  • 5 of 5
Back from a fantastic family holiday at the Beach Bungalow. No photos do these outstanding seaviews justice. We had the best of both world, total peace and quiet and somehow we were in the center of the old town so we could walk everywhere. We enjoyed beautiful sunset dinners, and breakfast outside on the dining area on top of the sea. We had concerns about privacy due to the other Surf Studio but were relieved to find that we had plenty of privacy and our own private spaces (dining area, sofas, barbecue, washing line etc). When we rarely did see the couple staying at the Surf Studio it was nice to swap tips on the walks and restaurants. Internet is very strong which was great and we really made the most of the swimming pool. Would highly recommend this property to any friend and we hope to return again this summer. Madeira was a great holiday choice as well, we saw so much but felt we had to come back soon to discover more.

TROPICAL OASIS

  • 5 of 5
Very nice holiday in the Beach House it was a perfect choice for us, in the center of town but still totally isolated and silent so we could enjoy the excellent climate (we didnt know it was so hot in September and sunny - we even got a proper suntan so that was a nice surprise). Very smooth booking process and all the email communication was fast and efficient and then when we arrived Alan picked us up at the airport and gave us good tips including local restaurants (we loved the Casa do Fado where all the family sang in the old town and the seafood rissotto was very generous, it was nice to be able to walk back home after a meal). The house is beautiful with more than we needed, and it must be very rare to get one with so many unlimited seaviews. The swimming pool is nice and warm. We did not mind sharing it with the Surf House as we each had space and our own barbecues and space - it was actually reassuring to have another couple nearby. We recommend walking in the mountains and a boat trip on the Seaborn ship which we enjoyed. Our only comments for improvement were the ants in one window need to be tackled and the mango tree seems to need some pruning. Great holiday and we´ll be back for sure.
