About Manuel F.

I was born in this house built by my parents, but it had to be rebuilt in 2002 to accommodate the modern comfort. I lived and worked abroad a long time. Now I want to give a new life to this house which I love and cherish.

Manuel F. purchased this Villa in 1936

Why Manuel F. chose São Martinho

Confort, hygiene, autenticity, just enough luxury, near all facilities and activities. Transports. Personalised warm and efficient support. Feeling at home from the first moment. If you plan a long stay in Madeira you have here a very best location. Special conditions are then négociable (over 3 months). New from April 2016 :http://www.dnoticias.pt/multimedia/video/572991-descubra-neste-video-o-novo-e-requalificado-complexo-balnear-do-lido

An unique leisure loundge (feel like a private club) to play billard or kicker, relax, watch a movie on the large flat TV, play social games, play the piano if you are a musicien.

                                                                  Four of us stayed here for 4 weeks in January/February and the weather was very good. We found it to be in an excellent location for any activity, within a reasonable walk to Funchal centre, the sea front, the local shops and restaurants. Everything about the villa exudes luxury and comfort. It was extremely well equipped and we really loved the room downstairs, especially the pool table! There was always a quiet spot to be found inside or outside where one could completely relax. We enjoyed eating breakfast outside, by the BBQ, nearly every day!

                                                                  The owner's relative who showed us round the villa and it's surroundings by car on arrival was extremely helpful, and the weekly cleaner was incredibly good. Would highly recommend to anyone.

                                                                  Very clean,comfortable with lots of great spaces for socializing. A marvelous view of Funchal

                                                                  Gary M.St. John's. Newfoundland, Canada

                                                                  Having stayed here for Xmas/New Year 2015/2016 we returned for a longer stay. 32 days. Everything was just as we remembered. A beautiful family home with lots of great features. A short 10 minute walk to downtown Funchal. Manuel's team of Carla, Alfredo and Adriano were there for our every need. An ideal location for a short or long term stay. We will be back in the future. Madeira is a safe and beautiful island, well worth the trip!

                                                                  Owner's Response:

                                                                  Welcoming you once more was a real honor and pleasure (including each person of the team) and we all would love to have you back again whenever you want :)

                                                                  We feel you consider sincerely the villa and Madeira with your hart, so do all of us. To know you have had a happy time and nice memories there, is an essential return for our efforts.

                                                                  Hope to see you next year :)

                                                                  Dear Ed, Thank you for your very concise but certainly useful synthesis for other future families of guests so pleasant to receive that yours. I'm particularly pleased you appreciated our little rose garden :). You will be welcome whenever you wish.


                                                                  Lovely apartment, spacious, enjoyed having the pool table and BBQ

                                                                  David B.

                                                                  We enjoyed the apartment, it was spacious and had good facilities including a good pool table and a BBQ. The location between the old town and the newer seaside developments was good for seeing both parts of Funchal.

                                                                  Manuel and his wife were very communicative and keen to help with advice which was great.

                                                                  We highly recommend the apartment.

                                                                  Owner's Response:

                                                                  Thank you for having taken the time to explain to the future guests the topics which were pleasant for your group of five in their stay at Villa Magnolia. A pleasant group of trekkers and nature lovers that seems to have adopted MadeiraI :)

                                                                  It is my pleasure to say we also adopted you, for having being positive comunicators before, during and after your stay, for having being careful and respectful guests. The opportunity to help you during the stay contributed to create friendly links

                                                                  So we may highly recommend you as a guest and will be happy to have you back in the future. M & J

                                                                  Beautiful Experience

                                                                  Judith S.

                                                                  The house was lovingly cared for, comfortable, and offered far more space and facilities than used by our group of five seniors. Located on a hill, as most of Funchal is, we were able to walk to city center and many restaurant choices much of the time. We did not use a car. The rose garden and patios added much to our stay. But the highest recommendations come for the kind and thoughtful owners who provided constant interest in our holiday, beginning long before our stay . A fine house attendant met us on the doorstep, toured the house with us then drove us through the city pointing out cites and facilities we might use. We felt well looked after. Our thanks to Manuel, his wife Janet, Alfredo our guide, and all the wonderful people who showed us Madeira 's best.

                                                                  Owner's Response:

                                                                  Now all i have to say is that you are lovely guests and we would very much love to have you back again.

Verten har vært genuint interessert i at vi skulle trives i huset og forøvrig gitt gode tips om området. Huset er perfekt plassert mellom sentrum og lokalt sentrum(badeområdet ) Verten organiserte henting til - og fra flyplassen og vi fikk og vel fremme fikk vi en god omvisning av huset. Huset var velholdt , rent og ryddig. Personlig syntes jeg det fremstod bedre i virkeligheten enn på bildene og kjøkkenet hadde alt tenkelig utstyr og huset har mye plass. En annen fin ting var muren rundt hele huset med egen dør inn til hagen/gårdsplassen. Dette utgjorde en god trygghetsfølelse Vi trivdes godt ute ved den lune grillplassen. Verten har vært fantastisk hele veien og vi anbefaler dette stedet på det varmeste.Christian

                                                                  They communicate very well, we exchanged when necessary very friendly e-mails and phone calls.

                                                                  Thank you Christian for all that and for this very kind review. We all are happy you have good memories of your stay

                                                                  The house was well maintained, clean and tidy. Personally I thought it appeared better in reality than in the pictures and the kitchen had all equipment and the house has a lot of space. Another nice thing was the wall around the house with its own door into the garden / courtyard. This amounted to a good sense of security, we were doing well out of the sheltered barbecue area.

                                                                  The host has been fantastic throughout and we highly recommend this place on the varmeste.Christian"
