About Cristina Abreu

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

Why Cristina Abreu chose Funchal

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.

What makes this villa unique

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.

Superb accommodation by sea

  • 5 of 5
Very happy to have chosen Villa Juvenal and Funchal Cottages (we rented both apartments for a wedding anniversary). bay View is a very handsome apartment, high ceilings with spacious rooms, and a colonial charm which is reflected in the decoration and architecture of the house. Property was well maintained and actually is even better than the photos show which was a nice surprise. Really enjoyed the terraces facing the sea, and it was just the kind of pretty view of Funchal harbour that we wanted. The service was professsional and friendly -we were greeted at the airport and they showed us how everything worked, as our flight was a bit late on the last day Alan kept our bags and then picked us up in town which was really appreciated. Really happy with our choice, it made our special holiday even more special.

Marvelous apartment by the sea

  • 5 of 5
We booked this jewel of an apartment and had an enchanting stay. Its a part of Funchal full of charm, lots of gardens, old houses crumbling to bits a bit like a refined and very clean Cuba without the danger or poverty. Apartment has a lot of space (we though the staircase was shared but then realised the entire place was just for the two of us - the bedroom is massive it has 3 different windows and three doors, so that gives an idea of how big it is). We used the swimming pool and spent a lot of time on the terrace which has great views of Funchal port. There are some teeny restaurants within walking distance which we found very good quality/price (tapassol, Jango and Sabor a Fado) and the barreirinha bar was great to sip a drink before heading back home (one night it had some good jazz). The climate was so warm we could not beleive it as it was snowing back home, we got 21 degrees one day. Its a very nice island and I think we chose the best place to stay.

Best of both worlds

  • 5 of 5
We stayed first in the Bay View and then the Pool Cottage (both owned by the same people) and found the combination superb. A private transfer took us in about 10min from the airport to the Bay View, arriving early at the house everything was ready for us at 10am which was very appreciated. The apartment was enormous and very handsome with tall ceilings and lots of windows with great sea views. We enjoyed the sunny terrace and also the sunbathing area around the pool which is shaded by banana trees (we ate some delicious). Location was brilliant in the center but without the bustle, we had dinner out every night in the old town which has plenty of choice, it also has typical poncha bars and a bakery which seems to be open all the time. When we went to the next apartment the owner picked us up and took us to the Pool Cottage (with all our breakfast stuff in a trolley) service was above and beyond what we expected and so was the Bay View which we would certainly recommend.

Seaside heaven

  • 5 of 5
We were very happy with our choice in the Bay view, we were picked up from our flight by Alan and taken to this lovely house in the old town. Its quite nice to be able to see all the boating activity in the port just in front of the villa, from canoes, to small fishing boats and some cruises. We got sun all day long and sunbathed on the terrace as well as down by the swimming pool. Friendly part of town, not too built-up with interesting architecture and houses you long to buy and do up. A very relaxing and comfortable stay, clean and professional service from the property manager - we plan to return in the winter to the Bay View and maybe get a bit more active this time with some mountain walks.

Cocktails and Cruises

  • 5 of 5
Hi it was fun staying at the lavander cottage as I felt I was really in a film - what Madeira was all about. Quaint, old world charm but most important comfortable.I had the lovely pool in front of me so I saw the birds while I had breakfast outside, and I also used quite often in the evening the special vista veranda belonging to the cottage - this has the most amazing view I think that I have ever stayed at. I felt I could nearly touch the cruise ship Aida. This close contact with the bay is what I will always remember.

walking

  • 5 of 5
We had a lovely stay in Bay view, We had plenty of space & didn't use the sitting room at all, as we prefered to look at the view from balcony.The meals we had at the villa were all eaten outside, there was everything thing we needed in villa to make our stay comfortable. It was very Clean & well maintained. The restaurants were all very good the closest being 5 mins walk & everyone very friendly and helpful. There was a little shop just around the corner for basics. However it took us a day or two to locate a supermarket! not as obvious as our giant supermarkets in the UK. But persevere they are out there. we shall return to the Island again to explore more, we did hire a car but didn't need this to get into town, we used this to travel out to look at other parts of the island.Please beware it is very steep in places. some walks & drives are not for the faint hearted, but if you can manage them you will be rewarded with spectacular views & scenery. We liked the location of the villa, away from the hotel area, & could spot when cruise ships arrived, so to avoid going into town on those busier days. lots of lovely pictures to look at now we are home. truly a beautiful Island.
