There are three bedrooms upstairs, all with sea-views and all leading onto the front balcony that extends the whole front of the house; the Master Bedroom has its own sitting area, dressing area and full bathroom with whirlpool bath. The second and third bedrooms each have their own private bathroom across the corridor.

Comfortable and relaxing

  • 4 of 5

The villa, located above the city of Funchal, offers stunning views of the bay and the surrounding hills. The interior is comfortable and of upper standard. The warm water could be, as with most accomodations in Southern Europe, hotter & with more pressure. Lucky enough, there are some mobile heaters, as the rooms cooled out quite fast during our stay (Jan/Feb).

The communication with Linda & Norberta was always friendly and helpful. There just is a little drawback we occured: We could only stay for 6 nights, however the minimum stay is 7 nights. Thus, we booked for 7 nights, leaving 1 day unused. Keeping that in mind, it made us wonder why we had to wait 2-3 hours before being able to check-in on arrival day (the house still had to be cleaned), although we 1) did announce our arrival for "morning", and 2) we already kept 1 day unused (booked 7 nights, used 6 nights). This clearly was a misunderstanding we could have avoided by paying closer attention to, but with some additional thinking on the side of the managers, this might have been avoided.

Taken all together, we recommend the operator as well as the villa for a stay on Madeira.

Owner's Response: Thank you very much for your kind comments and recommendation. Just to clarify we do have a minimum stay of 7 nights, which you did indeed pay for. However, if we have guests departing on the same day as a customer arrives, it is impossible to have a house prepared first thing in the morning. You can leave your luggage at the house, and use the waiting time for some lunch and supermarket shopping. In your case your ‘unused’ day was at the end of the week, not at the beginning. I hope this clarifies.

Villa Vista Sol was an excelent choise for our holidays--> beautifull views to the ocean and over Funchal :) Interior of villa was like the museum (good meening ) --> very spacy, clean, a lot of different paintings / pictures at the walls, stylish oldfashioned furnitures, but the same time modern etc... Beds were very comfortable and the pool good:) WE realy have enjoyed our holidays:) Thank you :)

Perfect house in a quiet area

  • 5 of 5

When we arrived late at night we were welcomed by Carlotta at the Villa. And after a tour of the house Carlotta even showed us the way to the local Supermarked (open until 23!). A perfect start for our family.

The house is beautiful and the view is impossible to describe. The pool is perfect for families with children and maintained weekly.

We had thought we could walk to Funchal, but the road is narrow and dark. But bus 40 leaves 5 minutes from the house and a taxi from Funchal is only 10-15 €.

We recommend the Whale Safari with Madeira Wind Birds where we saw dolphins, a turtle and whales.

A lovely house, good service and a very quiet area.

Beautiful Castle

  • 5 of 5

Super-Castle (about 400 m²)with a brilliant view over Funchal, the Harbour. Big natural pool and a lot of flowers/trees. Inside the Castle: fantastic!

Ideal for all people, large families, groups (except: for elder persons with no car and limited personnel mobility)

If have been there you never want to stay again in a normal Hotel, Villa. Even the weather was fine!

A couple of kilometres away (5 minutes by car) is a row of shops and a good bakery/patisserie, ideal for that morning espresso.

The local shopping area of Garajau is ten minutes by car on the road that winds along the coast. There you have all a choice of restaurants for snacks and dinner, two of the best bakeries on the island, 2 large supermarkets, a fresh fruit and vegetable store, pharmacy, newsagent, a bank with ATM.

The village of Caniço is a further couple of kilometres along the coastline, with a further selection of restaurants and bars, shopping centre and church square. Caniço de Baixo, at sea level has a lovely promenade and is a popular choice with the locals at the weekend.

Well worth a visit are the Botanical Gardens (4 Km) and the world renown Palheiro Gardens (5 Km).

The cosmopolitan city of Funchal, with its fruit & vegetable market, fish Market (the best morning to visit is Friday), marina and harbour, theatre, shops and restaurants is only 10 minutes by car.

 It has grown over the years, ascending higher and higher up the mountainsides, resulting in a beautiful display of sparkling white buildings by day and a myriad of glittering lights at night.

The 18-hole Palheiro Golf course is only 4 kilometres away.

From golf to mountain biking to paragliding and big game fishing, Madeira has something for everyone. No matter where you go on the island, you are rewarded with fabulous scenery, tiny villages and friendly people.
