About Cristina Abreu

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

Why Cristina Abreu chose Funchal

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

What makes this villa unique

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.

Guestbook comments from the manager

What a joy to stay at the Surf Studio, so wonderful to enjoy the sunshine and views after a miserable winter a home. Thanks for the welcome items and the house being so clean and pretty - we have stayed in many places but this is really one of the nicest by far. Please thank all the team for the airport pick up and their assistance during our stay, we will be back in October. All the best.

Small but fabulous location

  • 5 of 5

The studio is small but cosy and clean and the views from the living room and bathroom windows straight out to sea more than make up for it. The private balcony is spacious and the whole pool area is gorgeous and very private, sharing with only one other let. It was our first visit to Madeira and we were so glad we stayed at this side near the Old Town and not in the big Hotel area at the other side, even though it was a slight climb.

Stunning flat on top of the sea

  • 5 of 5

Can´t praise Surf Studio more. It far exceeded our expectations and specially the location on the sea. Loved being in the heart of the old town which is so lively, with great food, music and pretty architecture. Our terrace over the ocean was huge, we had our meals, relaxed and sunbathed here in great privacy all the time. A real plus to have a swimming pool, specially after a mountain walk. The decoration is elegant and the flat has all the things we needed for a comfortable stay. Great customer service (efficient airport pick up, and the communication throughout was fast and professional). Enjoyed our dinner at Gaviao Novo with fresh fish, also Fort was good - didn´t really love Tapasol. Apart for that meal all excellent and had a perfect holiday full of sunshine in this Surf studio oasis!

Beautiful seafront holiday

  • 5 of 5

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.

Inspired Choice

  • 5 of 5

We had a moment of inspiration when choosing the Surf Studio and were very pleasantly surprised. The views are truly outstanding. Our favorite things: the large shower that looks onto the sparkling sea; Watching the boats at different times at night (we had binoculars and it was a fantastic sight to see the squid fishermen and sailing ships passing on their way in and out of the harbor); swimming in the warm pool and sunbathing on the terrace. Property is beautiful, without an ugly thing in sight. Fittings looked very new and everything worked nicely. Having a holiday right on top of the sea like this was greatly relaxing experience as it was just us and the sea, no noise at all apart from that. Location is right in the old town, we enjoyed cooking some nights at home but also discovering the Portuguese food in restaurants like casa Portugesa which was excellent and only a short walk away. Beautiful holiday in a very pretty house, we will return very soon.
