About Gary Flint

Gary and Glenys moved to live on this beautiful island in October 2014 attracted to the moderate climate, stunning scenery and generous friendly people.

Glenys’ career designing ladies knitwear for the fast paced fashion business involved extensive travelling to the Far East. Having always been interested in art I hope to pursue my passion to paint the inspirational flora, fauna and seascapes on the island. There may be some of my pieces hanging on the wall in Bela Vista Villa, I hope you enjoy them?

Gary Flint purchased this apartment in 2014

Why Gary Flint chose Ponto do Sol

It was always our dream to design and build our own luxury modern house. We are more than happy to share the process with you over a drink one evening if you are thinking of doing the same!

What makes this apartment unique

The beautiful views from this location made us decide to build Bela Vista Villa.

Fantastic Villa with an amazing view.

  • 5 of 5

Bella Vista ticks all the boxes. We would not hesitate to recommend this villa to anyone.

The photographs are a true reflection of this beautiful property. Gary and Glenys are very welcoming, doing all they can to make your stay comfortable and enjoyable. We at no time felt a lack of privacy. We would love to return to this magical part of the wonderful island of Madeira.

Relaxation with the utmost quality

  • 5 of 5

The apartment is the utmost in quality. We chose this appartment after a lot of reseach as we wanted some relaxation and the opportunity to chill. We were not disappointed. It is nicely located above a couple of resorts ( 10 minute drive). Funchal is also easily reached. We did a fair bit of walking along the Levadas and coast. Gary and Glenys (hosts) were unobtrusive but always at hand to answer our questions. As long as you're prepare to drive there can't be many better apartments on the whole of the Island. We will return.

Lovely apartment in a beautiful setting.

  • 5 of 5

Well appointed, clean, bright and comfortable apartment in a quiet area with panoramic views of the sea and countryside. It was everything we could have wished for and it was a pleasure meeting our hosts, Gary and Glenys. The friendly and informative welcome we received was much appreciated.

The apartment is ideally situated between Ponta Do Sol and Ribeira Brava and very accessible from the island's main road network.

We plan to return again soon.
