Since moving to the Old Town of Funchal 10years ago we fell in love with this beautiful part of Madeira. We live here because it is the ideal combination of sun, old fashioned charm, tropical gardens and sea. Our villas each have their unique character, with the luxury of space - a sense of history and offering the best Madeira has to offer. We have assembled a collection of 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 2008

Seaside location near the Old Town of Funchal. The tropical garden is an oasis in the center of town with a swimming pool surrounded by tropical plants. The sea and beach is a short walk away. We Love the climate here which is warm year round as it has a nice micro-climate. Very friendly neighborhood, un-spoilt & charming. The villa itself is a very beautiful buidling, over a hundred years old with stunning period features that have all been lovingly restored and fully modernized to make your stay not only very stylish but also very comfortable. The house has a feeling of peace and tranquility inside which is complemented by the dazzling seaviews just in front. Watching the boats pass just in front a dream and looking at the port of Funchal so close is a source of constant joy. We try to use local artisans and craftsmen everytime we can, so you can see the artwork, beautiful handmade wicker furniture and TLC that is given to each property and also helps the local community.

Beautiful traditional villa with huge sevaiew terraces on each floor all looking to the sea, absolutely fantastic sea and harbor views. Very spacious rooms, decorated with style and great features, you get the luxury of space in the very best location in all Madeira and Funchal. Near the sea and old town, yet with the benefit of the seaviews and peace and quiet. Enjoy outdoor living and cooking on the barbecue year round, sip a drink as the Queen Mary Cruise ship passes just in front, its Madeira but its the Very Best of Madeira.

Amazing apartment with a simply breath-taking view

  • 5 of 5
  • Submitted: Jan 22, 2014
  • Stayed: Aug 2013
Ocean View lived up to all our expectations and so much more. The apartment is bright and airy with the most wonderful views you will ever find. Overlooking the harbour with the Old Town and the centre of Funchal spreading out below, it is an absolute pleasure to just relax on the balcony and watch the city (and the ships) go by.

The apartment is beautiful, well furnished and feels very much a home from home. High ceilings, comfy sofas, fully equipped kitchen and with added extras such as a dvd player and wifi, the apartment is a joy to stay in. The swimming pool is fantastic and our daughters (aged 8 & 5) spent many happy hours every day swimming and splashing about.

The Old Town has some fantastic restaurants and is only a 5 - 10 minute walk from the apartment. The local bakery (up a steep hill) provided super bread and cakes, and there is a little convenience store next door for all the essentials. The main supermarket in town (opposite the Farmer's Market) stocks absolutely everything and a taxi back to the apartment is less than 5euros.

Funchal is lively and cosmopolitan (but never too much so) and there is loads to see and do. Cafes are great (especially the Golden Gate). If you have children, definitely do the cable car (station located in the Old Town - you can see it from Ocean View's balcony) and visit the water park (back near the airport).

And after a busy day, coming back to Ocean View and its wonderful panorama will always provide a restorative tonic to the most tired traveller.

In terms of logistics, it is a 20 minute car ride from the airport (organised through the agents before we arrived) and the service we received from Cristina and the agents looking after the property was first class from beginning to end.

I can't think of a single negative thing to write. In fact, it was so good, we are going back.

I would heartily recommend Madeira, Funchal and Ocean View in particular!

We thought the apartment was lovely

  • Submitted: Oct 31, 2013
  • Stayed: Oct 2013
Just wanted to drop you a line to say thank you for providing us with such a stunning apartment to spend our holidays and for the little extra touches like the basket of provisions on our arrival.
We thought the apartment was lovely. It was spotlessly clean, beautifully appointed and the views from the terrace were a delight morning, noon and after dark. We found the information on the website very helpful for planning beforehand and it turned out just as promised. Being able to stay a little later on the Friday was also a real bonus so thank you for that.
We have left some further recommendations for eating out. We especially enjoyed Z’arcos in Sao Goncales and getting there and back on the 38 bus was very simple.

Thank you again and best wishes,
Helen & Bill

Such a Magical Place

  • Submitted: Oct 14, 2013
  • Stayed: Aug 2013
We are so looking forward to coming back to Funchal, and especially to Ocean View. The view from the balcony on a clear evening with the thousand of lights illuminating Funchal town is something I still think of often and Jayne will be dreaming of plans to restore the wonderful old house in the old town on the corner overlooking the pontoon. Such a magical place.

With my very best wishes, and thank you.
