Outstanding Luxury Villa. Private & Peaceful Location. 180º Views of the Sea

Once a family home, Villa da Falésia (Villa Cliff), has been totally refurbished by it's interior designer owner, and now provides first class holiday accommodation for families and groups of friends. It will be hard to find a better location for a holiday on Madeira.

Villa da Falésia (Cliff Villa), has been beautifully decorated and tastefully furnished, and is equipped with absolutely everything you need to make your stay comfortable. Offering complete privacy and an abundance of space, both inside and out, the unique location will guarantee you a truly peaceful and relaxing holiday.

From the minute you enter the villa you will know you have made the right choice.

The lounge is in the centre of the villa, with comfortable sofas and chairs, flat screen cable TV and DVD player. With floor to ceiling and wall to wall sliding windows, the lounge is fresh and bright with views that are unforgettable. In the rear corner of the lounge, adjacent to the enormous fully equipped kitchen, is an oval dining table that seats 8. You will probably never use this as the temptation of dining alfresco on the terrace or down by the swimming pool will be irresistible.

The bedrooms are all on the ground floor and lead off the lounge, with two on each side, 3 of them with sea views.

Bedroom 1 Master bedroom - King size double bed, en-suite bathroom, and sea view.

Bedroom 2 King size double bed, which can be separated to single beds if required

Bedroom 3 Double bed with sea view.

Bedroom 4 Two single beds with en-suite shower room

Bathroom 1 Washbasin, toilet, bidet, bath with overhead shower

Bathroom 2 Washbasin, toilet, bidet, shower

Bathroom 3 Washbasin, toilet, shower

Bathroom 4 Guest toilet

The spectacular panoramic sea-views over the cliff for which the house is named can be fully appreciated from the outdoor seating and dining on the front terrace From here there is a sloping path that leads down through the extensive gardens to the large pool area. There are sun loungers and umbrellas, a barbecue and a large table and comfortable seating area.

Below the swimming pool is a terraced garden, right on the sea cliff with 14 mature palm trees - just to give you an idea of just how much space there is!

                                                Enchanting Madeiran Villa

                                                Judith D.

                                                Villa Da Falésia is an outstanding self-catering property. Its beautiful terraced garden with sweeping views of the ocean make it a special place. The villa is pretty, well-furnished and clean, and offers quiet and privacy. Located in Garajau, it is within easy walking distance of shops, restaurants, and bus service to Funchal. The owner and the management company made sure my stay ran smoothly. I heartily recommend the villa for a peaceful, relaxing holiday.

                                                Fantastic House

                                                Truly a great home to stay in.

                                                Perfect location and all amenities in and around house are well arranged

                                                Thank you very much indeed.

                                                Superb quality villa with plenty of space

                                                Jerry O.Bristol, England, Uk

                                                This villa was a perfect family base with great facilities and comfortable, clean accommodation. It's very well located for visits to Funchal, mountain walks, golf, snorkeling and other attractions. The 180 degree views are absolutely stunning as you are situated high on the cliff over looking Cristo Rei in Garajau. There are plenty of local shops, cafes and restaurants within a 20 min walk. You can even take the cable car down to the local beach and have a reasonable meal at the beach cafe.

                                                We'll be back soon to explore the rest of the island.

                                                Looking forward to your return visit. Thanks for the great review!

                                                Stunning villa!

                                                donna A.

                                                This villa is like something out of a film set! It definitely has the X Factor! The pool was beautifully warm and the pool area very relaxing. It was unseasonably hot (hottest in 40 years!) whilst we were there so the house could have done with air conditioning but the owners kindly provided us with fans.

                                                This is the perfect place for a complete get away!

                                                Owner's Response:

                                                Thank you for your super review. It was an unusually hot August, and whilst air conditioning is not normally a requirement for Madeira, we could all have done with it in August! Hope to welcome you back again someday.

                                                Wonderful holiday in Villa Da Falésia in Caniço

                                                Els d.

                                                In October/November we stayed in Villa Da Falésia with our son and his girlfriend. We have enjoyed the house greatly. The house is very well maintained, the gardens are fabulous and the view on the ocean is fantastic.

                                                Although we planned to rent a house in Funchal originally, we were very pleased with the location of Villa Da Falésia. It is in a very quiet area, but the necessary shops are nearby. A rental car is however advisable.

                                                The location was excellent for our planned trips: visits to Funchal, the laurel forests, walks on the levada’s and the Madeira wine tour.

                                                The service was excellent and we can recommend this property to anyone!
