Overview

About the property

Close to Funchal centre, for those seeking a premium holiday home

Located overlooking Funchal, yet within easy walking distance of the town centre, in an upmarket residential area, Villa Luzia has superb uninterrupted views of the town, hills and sea and is probably one of the very best on the island. Featuring a superb large heated indoor pool and amazing leisure and social area, it is furnished to an exceptionally high standard, attention to detail is evident everywhere. From Duresta sofas to Carpe Diem beds (as used by the Swedish Royal Family) supreme comfort is assured throughout.

The open-plan lounge/dining is vast (12,5m X 5,7m) and offers two ample seating areas and an elegant dining table. French windows lead onto the garden and front terrace. Featured in a corner is a large flat screen TV with cable channels, surround sound system and DVD.

The kitchen is large, contemporary and very well equipped, with 4-ring electric hob, built-in electric oven, dishwasher, double-door American style fridge/freezer, toaster, coffee maker and juicer. A breakfast table benefits from the views to the hills and ocean through the French doors that lead to the front terrace. A flat screen cable TV allows you to keep up with the news at breakfast time.

A separate barbecue room features a bread oven, traditional Madeira barbecue for grilling espetada and electric hob and sink.

The whole of the lower floor is an amazing social and leisure area. Table tennis, table football and a pool table are complemented by a variety of table games (poker, mah-jong, rummycub, and children’s games) and features an outstanding middle-east inlaid table for backgammon, chess and draughts. A seating corner with a large flat-screen TV with CD player (a variety of music is available) is served by a fully equipped bar. It leads to the steps that access the indoor pool and a visitor’s toilet.

A large office with desk and meeting table can be found off the leisure area, a great solution for those needing to deal with business whilst on holiday.

The bedrooms are all beautifully furnished; four are on the first floor (three with en-suite bathrooms) along with a family shower room. The Master bedroom is very spacious and features a dressing area and en-suite bathroom with whirlpool bath and walk-in shower. Both this and the second bedroom have private balconies with those superb views.

The fifth bedroom is on the ground floor, suitable for those with limited mobility.

All beds are Carpe Diem king-sized doubles with conjoined single mattresses, guaranteeing the greatest comfort.

The heated pool is nothing short of spectacular. Very large at 8,5m X 5,5m it is an interior pool with large glass panes that open up to the garden and view, perfect for both summer and winter, surrounded by easy chairs and sunbeds. There are changing/shower rooms and toilet facilities available.

For those that want to keep up their fitness regime, there is a bicycle, treadmill and cross-walker on a mezzanine overlooking the pool.

Sunbeds are provided for the garden and front terrace.

The south-facing front terrace is perched overlooking the town and ocean, and is partially covered, allowing the choice of catching the sun or keeping in the shade, whilst appreciating those gorgeous views, perfect for watching the cruise ships arrive and depart and for the June and New Years Eve firework displays. Garden furniture includes sun-beds, and two large dining tables with a capacity for 12 people, perfect for alfresco family meals, and tables and chairs for reading or for those sunset evening cocktails.

A separate laundry features a washing machine and tumble dryer, iron and ironing board

Stunning!

  • 5 of 5

This is probably the smartest villa we have stayed in after 22 years of villa holidays in Europe. It has EVERYTHING! The only possible improvement would be if the pool was outdoor but given the propensity for rain showers on Madeira it perhaps make sense that it is indoors. Bedrooms huge and beds super comfy. Views amazing. Furnishings and features of the highest quality. Would definitely come back.

Beautiful villa, spotlessly clean, great location

  • 5 of 5

The villa was everything you could ask for and very true to the pictures. It had beautiful views out over the sea but within a 15 minute walk of the town and excellent choice of restaurants. The Villa itself was massive, well thought through with everything you could need to have a very comfortable stay, it was spotless and thoughtfully decorated. The swimming pool and general facilities were fabulous.

We had a great welcome from Linda and Norberta, there was a useful guide with villa instructions, useful maps and guide books available and an appreciated welcome food pack. All in all nothing you could fault and we look forward to returning in the future.

Family Vacation to Funchal

  • 5 of 5

House is even better in person if you can believe that. We are pretty fussy and the house could not have been better or cleaner. Even the 15 and 19 year orders with us were not bored.

We (4 adults and 4 kids) had a wonderful stay at this outstanding property. The house is equipped with all you can imagine and even more: eg huge playing room with pool billard, table tennis, chess, cards table, etc., a fantastic swimming pool house, in all bedrooms luxury and very comfortable beds, wonderful views.

A big thank you to Norbert and Linda who took perfectly care of us.

Beautiful Property - Would highly Recommend

  • 5 of 5

We stayed at this villa with my parents in November and we were very pleased with our choice. It looks exactly like it does in the pictures. All of the rooms are lovely and it has great facilities including a games room and a pool. The views are stunning and it is either a short(ish) walk to town or a very cheap taxi ride away. If we are to come back to Madeira we would book this property again.

Absolutely stunning

  • 5 of 5

We stayed at Villa Luzia for a week in November, and it is simply stunning. The views from the decking over the sea and city are fabulous, the photographs do not do it justice.

The facilities are fantastic, we made full use of the kitchen and the BBQ room. The games room with pool table, table tennis were great fun. The pool is very well maintained and clean, as is the whole villa.

All the bedrooms are en-suite, spacious and beautifully decorated.

The villa is located close to the town, walking down hill to the town centre is easy, but we would recommend a taxi back up the hill, as it is very steep.

For anyone thinking of visiting Madeira, Villa Luzia is the perfect base for exploring the city and island, and we would thoroughly recommend it.

Car: recommended

The nearest facilities (a bakery and café) are a mere 300 metres away, and the town centre is 1Km away. A downhill walk into town will take approximately 15 minutes to the main shopping area and market.

Funchal is a cosmopolitan town with around 500 cafés, restaurants and bars. Walk along the pedestrianized streets with their many esplanades and cafés, or the old town where character townhouses have all been transformed into trendy bars and restaurants. Take a long walk along the promenade that runs along the coast. There is a varied number of museums that chart Madeira’s history.

Visit the Botanical Gardens, or take the cable car to Monte where you can visit the Monte Palace Gardens. The world renowned Palheiro Gardens should not be missed.

Access to the motorway is only a 3-minute drive, allowing you to easily explore the island.

The airport is an easy 20 minutes along the motorway.
