Situated below the Botanical Gardens in a quiet residential area

Casa da Pinheira is a luxury villa and has everything you would expect for a villa of its quality. It is the perfect choice for holidays with friends and family.

Très belle et grande villa idéalement placée

  • 5 of 5

Superbe villa avec tout le confort qui est nécessaire pour passer d'excellentes vacances. Nous avons bien profité de la piscine chauffée . Villa idéale pour passer des vacances à plusieurs couples. Grands espaces, aménagements intérieur et extérieur adaptés. Idéalement placé pour faire les excursions sur l'ile. Et tout ça avec une splendide vue sur FUNSHAL. Le TOP.

Merci pour votre accueil.

Wonderful house with all amenities

  • 5 of 5

A lovely house that we would love to return to. It was spacious, fully equipped and with a great view over Funchal. We especially enjoyed the fact that it was olcated in a non-touristy area, with a school across the street and a small bakery and fruit 'n vegetable store within walking distance. Each evening we caught the local bus to go downtown for a meal. Very convenient! We went hiking along levadas, took the teleferique to Monte and the traditional toboggans down. We also visited the Jardín Bótanico and Mercado de Lavradores. Over all, a very good visit to Madeira!

The only thing we would like to address about the house was the lack of softer mattresses on top of the beds, other than that it was perfect.

Fantastic villa

  • 5 of 5

A friend and I stayed at the villa for a week. The villa is fantastic. It is VERY spacious and decorated and furnished to a very high standard. The kitchen again is spacious and has everything you need. The outside space is also immaculate with a lovely pool and gorgeous views across Funchal and the harbour as well as up to the mountains. The only thing I could suggest would be air con in the bedrooms.

Locally there is a good mini market and bar/restaurant - we used both. The bus into Funchal or up to the botanical gardens stops 2 minutes walk from the villa along the quiet rode at the top on the villa's drive. However taxis are also inexpensive and the local company very good, as is the local tour operator with small groups of 6 and a local guide.

The owner is very helpful, meeting you at the villa from the airport, explaining everything and meeting you as you leave. They are easily contactable. The welcome pack was very much appreciated - thank you - especially the wine!

Would definitely return and would recommend to anyone who is not concerned about being a short bus/taxi ride from the town centre.

Wunderbare Villa mit herrlichem Blick

  • 5 of 5

Wir hatten eine sehr schöne Zeit im Casa da Pinheira I. Der Empfang war sehr freundlich. Die Villa ist prima ausgestattet. Der Pool ist super gepflegt und wurde von unseren Kindern bei jedem Wetter ausgiebig genutzt. Der Blick auf Funchal und den Hafen mit den Kreuzfahrtschiffen ist traumhaft. Fußläufig ist ein Mini-Markt, ein Obst-/Gemüsehändler und eine leckere Bäckerei zu erreichen, was sehr praktisch ist. Funchal und Madeira haben uns begeistert und Casa da Pinheira I ist als Unterkunft absolut zu empfehlen.

Perfect vacation in Madeira for our big family

  • 2 of 5

We had an excellent holiday in Madeira, and the house was great. We enjoyed the stay very much.

As you informed, the house had everything inside, we didn´t missed anything.

I really hope that we can come back again. We were 9 persons and a baby and there was plenty of room for all of us. And we specially liked the pool area where we spend most of our days. The breakfast time with the view was faboulous. Hopefully we can come back some day.

super Villa, geräumig, traumhafter Blick ******

  • 5 of 5

Wir haben die Villa mit 6 Personen (3 Paare) bewohnt. Wegen der vielen schönen Schlafräume und Badezimmer kam jeder auf seine Kosten. Es ist alles sauber und hübsch eingerichtet. Der Wohn-Eßbereich und die Küche sind sehr großzügig. Alles funktional und bestens ausgestattet. An dem großen Holztisch auf der Terasse, mit einem grandiosen Blick auf Funchals Hafen mit den Kreuzfahrtschiffen, haben wir uns jeden Morgen die köstlichen Brötchen schmecken lassen. Der Bäcker und ein Minimarkt sind schnell zu Fuß zu erreichen. Das fast halbstündige Feuerwerk, von der großen Außenterasse aus bestaunen zu können , war einfach nur traumhaft. Der Pool ist groß und entspannend. Es gibt genug Liegen und Sitzmöglichkeiten, auch an jemanden, der sich mal zurückziehen möchte, wurde gedacht. Unsere 2 Autos parkten wir in der angrenzenden Garage. Die Übergabe und Abnahme durch Carlotta war freundlich und klappte reibungslos. Vielen Dank auch für den Willkommenskorb mit der leckeren Grundausstattung. Die Lage war für uns ideal. Mit dem Auto lässt sich von hier aus die gesamte Insel super erkunden. Es gibt aber auch eine Bushaltestelle direkt vor der Tür, also auch mal eine Alternative um nach Funchal-Stadt zu gelangen. Den Orchideengarten erreicht man auch zu Fuß...der 200 Meter Aufstieg sind zwar etwas mühselig aber auf jeden 'Fall lohnenswert.

Wir können die Villa absolut zu einhundert Prozent weiter empfehlen Für uns alle war es ein schöner unvergesener Urlaub im sonnigen Madeira.

There are some local restaurants, bakery and a small supermarket. The Botanical Gardens are a must for garden lovers, especially as they are so close to the villa, approximately 500 metres. However it is an uphill walk all the way, but the local bus service is frequent and on your door step. Only a 5 minutes walk are the lovely Orchid Gardens and Quinta das Boa Vista, definitely worth a visit.

The cosmopolitan city of Funchal with its Fruit & Vegetable Market, Fish Market (the best morning to visit is Friday), Marina, Harbour, Theatre and many shops and restaurants is only a kilometre away.


The coast is about a 10 minute drive by car. Madeira's beaches are all pebble, with the exception of a few which have black sand and one with golden sand in Calheta, 30 minutes west of Funchal. Sea access for swimming is excellent along the south coast, either from the beaches, the many seafront hotels or from the 'lidos' which, for a small daily charge, offer swimming in sea water pools and protected sea areas.


Two championship courses, Palheiro (3kms) and Santo da Serra (15 kms) offer challenging golf amongst spectacular scenery. Alternatively you may like to take the ferry to the nearby island of Porto Santo and try the course there!
