Perfect villa with perfect views
This place was terrific! There were 4 of us and it allowed us enough space for privacy and great common areas for times together. The views are amazing from this house! We had the pool heated but sadly it still wasn’t warm enough for the cold spell that came through. The villa is located in a sleepy village away from Funchal noise and congestion. Everything you need is 5 mins away. Easy drive to Funchal when you want to venture in. Joana was super prompt and was attentive to all our needs. Highly recommend this villa for anyone wanting comfort, space, cleanliness, and fantastic views!
Thanks Laura for your kind message! Unfortunately you were not lucky with the weather (which is not normal on the island) ;(
I would like to invite you to a longer stay at Madeira island, we have our brand new villa in Funchal, "Villa Alvinho" and another one at Porto Santo Island "Villa Golf". It'll be a pleasure to welcome you again. Farewell!
Very good accomodation with nice pool
Good customer service ready to help any time we call, house was nicely refurbed and all you can ask to have a good time in a house, highly recommended
Thanks João for your kind message. The happiness of our guests is our greatest joy ;) I would like to invite you to a longer stay at Madeira island, we´ve have another recently inaugurated villa in Funchal, "Villa Alvinho" and another one at Porto Santo Island "Villa Golf". It'll be a pleasure to welcome you again. Farewell!
This was our second visit to Madeira, first one in 2014 when we stayed in an hotel; this time decided to be independent and rent a car , as well, which is a must to get to this property.
Couple of minor negative points: no internet upstairs, crawling insects inside the house , bad smell in the downstairs bathrooms, shower windows/ pool glass blurred due to hard water in the region.
On the positive side : amazing views, really quite area, owner really helpful and responsive, nice welcome package well received.
Thank you, Joana and Vanda.
Tranquility and fantastic views
Villa Clementina is perfectly positioned in a very quiet area with great views over the Atlantic Ocean as well as the countryside. We spent 13 days there and enjoyed every second. Here are the reasons why:
- The quietness and the views are second to none
- The kitchen is modern, well functioning and well equipped
- The three bedrooms all have beds with fairly firm matresses and pillows with memory foam, which we liked, for a good - and very quiet - night's sleep
- No less than four bathrooms, all with toilets and showers (a bathroom for each of the three bedrooms and a common) as well as a bathroom outdoors if you are wet. In addition, there is an outdoor shower for use after a dip in the pool.
- The pool is big allowing you to actually swim. During our stay in July the water temperature was around 30°C - without heating. But if 30°C is too cold for you, you have the option to get the pool heated for an additional fee.
- Well-functioning Wi-Fi and TV with a DVD player. But due to the thick walls of the solidly built house the Wi-Fi cannot penetrate to the upper floor bedrooms.
Of local restaurants we also recommend Casa Grelhados Prazeres Rurais and Chico as previous reviewers. Good local food and friendly service.
The supermarket in Prazeres is OK, but the one in Calheta is a lot better. You will find a bigger supermarket in Ribeira Brava (Continente) and of course several in Funchal.
As mentioned in the previous review, we also recommend the use of a GPS device to locate the villa, otherwise you will have a tough time finding it. Joana provides these coordinates in a email after your final payment. Also, Joana responds promptly to questions you may have prior to booking and prior to your arrival.
All in all highly recommended.
Thank you for your pleasant words! For make an even better stay to our guests we have resolve the lack of Wi Fi on the 1st floor.Thank you to mention that, you helped us to improve! Regarding to the heated pool, I think someone forgot to turn off :) ... better for you!! All the best!! Joana

Wunderschöne, sehr ruhig gelegene Villa!
Wir hatten eine super schöne Woche in der Villa Clementina. Die Ausstattung in der Küche und in den Bädern ist modern und sehr gut. Vor allem die Duschen haben uns durch das viele und warme Wasser ausgesprochen gut gefallen.
Der Blick von der Terrasse und vom Pool aus ist einzigartig und man hat von morgens bis spät am Nachmittag Sonne auf der Terrasse.
Der Kontakt mit Joana per e-mail und Vanda vor Ort war professionell aber herzlich.
Wir würden jederzeit wieder hier buchen.
