Funchal Villa Rental Photos and Description

Situated Below The Botanical Gardens with Views Over Funchal And The Atlantic

Tastefully furnished, spacious, beautiful wooden floors and very well equipped, it is the perfect location for a relaxing holiday. Particularly well positioned for the June and New Year firework display.

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. The location is ideal, away from the hustle and bustle of the busy tourist area, yet only a kilometre away from the old town, cable car, market and city centre. Locally there are a couple of restaurants; a delicious bakery and a small supermarket. Although car hire is not necessary, the villa has private garage parking for 2 cars. Buses run regularly to the Botanical Gardens and to Funchal.

The spacious split level living and dining area has comfortable sofas, TV with cable connection, DVD recorder and dining table and chairs. There are large French windows leading to the terrace, garden and pool area, with panoramic views over the city and Atlantic Ocean.

The villa has been tastefully furnished and decorated, with much attention to detail.

average rating of 4.5625 based on 16 reviews

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.

Perfect Stay at Casa da Pinheira

  • 5 of 5

Thanks a lot. It was a perfect and wonderful time in your house and in Madeira.

The big and light house gave us everything we needed for a relaxing holiday. Ideal for 10 people and great view over the city. The pool gave us every afternoon a refreshing bath after long and hot hiking hours. We felt all the time so comfortabel and I think it was the best choice to spent the madeira time in your house. We will for sure come back!! At least we will recommend the house to everybody coming to Madeira!

Thank you!

Hard to beat location and perfect for a group

  • 5 of 5

As a group of friends going walking together on the Island Villa Pinhiera suited us perfectly. Built on overlapping levels the property seemed deceptively spacious and afforded plenty of privacy between the bedrooms. Whilst only one room was en-suite, there seemed to be enough bathrooms to go round. The huge kitchen had plenty of equipment and enabled us to cook several nights, and the wi-fi kept everyone amused uploading the days photos. The pool was (just) warm enough for hardier folk to swim in march, and the view from the house is hard to beat. An easy, safe, but steep walk into town in 15 minutes takes you to many bars and restaurants - these are mostly near the bottom of the cable car - something useful to know on your first night. Coming home there never seemed to be a shortage of taxis. Funchal is a delightful city to stroll around withe everywhere being walking distance. Sightseeing wise apart from the many options for walking, we thought the lava caves at Sao Vicente well worth the drive. For authentic Poncha go to Bar no 2 - old town facing the ocean.

Owner's Response: Thank you for your super review and I am glad that Casa Da Pinheira was the perfect choice for you. It is ideal for small or large groups as there is plenty of space both in and around the villa, and very close to town. Great to see you found Bar Noº 2 for the famous local drink of Poncha! Hope to welcome you back again one day.

Great, spacious villa

  • 5 of 5

Lovely villa, very spacious and lots of rooms so could host a large number of folk.

It has a wonderful view over Funchal and there is a reliable, reasonable frequent bus service into town. We hired a car which we probably didn't need to as we found we spent most days around Funchal. There is also a bakers/ mini supermarket/ bar within walking distance.

The kitchen is better than most villas and there's lots of equipment, dishes plus a good microwave/ dishwasher.

We were a party of five (3 adults and 2 kids, almost 4&2). The kids loved the pool especially the shallow area for splashing. My only caveat would be for children who have just learnt to crawl or walk as there is a few stairs.

Owner's Response: A super 5 star review - thank you very much. It is a great house and very well equipped, so a home from home, and with the advantages of lots of space and those wonderful views over the capital and Atlantic Ocean.

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!
