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.

Thanks Cristina and Cecilia for all your help with our stay - my bags got to here in the end but i wanted to say Obrigado for all your support. I loved my solo holiday and sooo chuffed to have chosen Surf and the old town as it was just my cup of tea, peaceful and full of lovely houses and good places to eat. Got to enjoy the famous Funchal climate as well which was such a joy to get some winter sun and I managed to write some chapters so all good! See you next year.

We wanted to drop a line to thank you for a great holiday, it was just what we needed relaxing, and so happy to have chosen Surf Studio beacuse of the contact we got with the sea. The views are quite breathtaking, so we could eat, sleep and wash looking at the ocean. This area of Funchal is really charming and we got to enjoy the local fish and seafood which we did not know was so good or affordable. Thanks again and we will be back soon I hope.

Just a quick thanks for a super stay in Surf Studio, everything went well from the airport transfer by Carlos, to the arrival at the house which has stunning seaviews - much better than the pictures show. We really made the most of the terrace, thanks for showing us how to use the barbecue - Grilled prawns, chilled chardonnay, whales sighted in the distance...Heaven! Its a a real jewel in the center of town and we are soooo happy to have stayed there.

Beautiful seafront holiday

We returned to Madeira for some blissful sunshine and had a great stay at the Surf Studio. The decoration and attention to detail is impressive, everything looks new and well maintained - the sea views are what this house is all about. It was so relaxing to fall asleep watching the tiny lights of the squid boats fishing far far away and then watching the sun rise from the sea just in front. The shower is also a huge window to the sea. We had a private terrace with our own barbecue, lounge chairs and eating area - so no need to share with the other house and we had our privacy just as we wanted. Loved the location as well, we ate in town most evenings, and had a swim in the beach down the road. Nice support from the owner that popped by to see if everything was ok and booked our transfers - all in all a super holiday villa we would 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.
