A villa off the beaten track.

  • 4 of 5

Villa Ricardo was a lovely place for my family to go between Christmas and the New Year. Mr Ricardo and Mrs Betty made us very welcome and looked after all the queries which we had very efficiently and found some good places for us to eat and gave us some useful tips about the Island. The villa is well appointed and the fireplace was great. In the winter it is too cold to swim but it was still lovely to sit by the pool for breakfast when the morning sun shines onto the terrace. Porto da Cruz is an authentic quiet village and a change from the bustle of Funchal and yet an easy car drive from it. It has some spectacular countryside around it and is a perfect base for those keen on walking the levadas or exploring the island.

Relaxing at Ricardo

  • 5 of 5

The welcome was inviting, the accommodation peaceful and relaxing.

Both Ricardo and Mrs Rubina were very helpful, and as we arrived late due to a flight delay they happily booked us in to Pipa's a local restaurant and ran us down there for a delicious meal. The villa complete with pool was a delight. I would certainly recommend this as an escape.

Relaxing holiday

  • 4 of 5

A great location for holiday in Madeira with many facilities is easy walking distance - restaurants, beach, etc. Villa has beautiful views looking across Porto da Cruz and the sea. Mrs Rubina was extremely friendly and helpful, providing suggestions of where to go/what to see. She also kept the property very clean. Sampled some Madeira from Mr Ramos' cellar - very good. Excellent local restaurants: Pipa's, and Restaurant Vila Bela - delicious fish and meat dishes, great coffee in bakery shop. Beach good for swimming and surfing (board rental available). Good location for exploring other parts of the island.

Wonderful place to spend the vacation

  • 5 of 5

We spent two beautiful weeks in this nice house with a great view to the sea. The house has 3 bedrooms with separate bathrooms and separate entrances. There is a nice and clean pool where you can enjoy the mild weather under banana trees. All facilities such as washer, dryer, dish washer, satellite TV, WLAN etc. are available. Several restaurants and the beach are within walking distance. The friendliness of the housekeeper and the owner was really outstanding. Really the only somewhat disturbing item was the road next to the house with quite some traffic in the morning.

For our needs the perfect accommodation

  • 5 of 5

It was a perfect holiday in a fantastic holiday home in Madeira.

Everything was wonderful. The kids loved to jump at any time of day into the pool , which is situated fantastically between banana trees.

Many thanks to Ricardo and Miss Roberta for the loving hospitality.

Maison confortable et très propre

  • 4 of 5

Nous avons passé des vacances agréables à la villa Ricardo, même si, en février ce n'est pas la meilleure période pour la météo (mais nous avons quand même utilisé une fois la piscine).

Le village est sympathique et tranquille et plus typique que la côte sud.

La maison est confortable et très propre. La cuisine est un peu petite et manque de plans de travail

PORTO DA CRUZ VILLAGE

Porto da Cruz is one of the parishes belonging to the Machico council. Its name came from a cross (Cruz) that was placed by the explorers on the bay once used as port (Porto). The attractions of this small parish are hidden and youll have to take a closer look to find them. One of them is the old sugar cane factory, which is still operating, as it was when it started with the sugar production in 1927. It boasts a 26 meter tall tower and when its working you might even see steam coming out!

Not to be missed is also the place known as Penha dÁguia, an imposing rock that separates Porto da Cruz from Faial. Getting up there might be a challenge, as the road is very steep, but the songs of the birds will help you on the way up and once you get there youll be sure it was definitely worth

Porto da Cruz is also famous for its wine. Known as vinho seco americano (dry red wine made of a type of grape called americana), this local product is the theme for a celebration usually happening in September (Festa do Vinho). In Porto da Cruz there are another two wonderful religious celebrations, with great beauty. The first occurs on days 15 and 16 of August, and the second, at the following weekend (Saturday and Sunday). They are celebrations that visitors should not miss!!!

The Porto the Cruz village is on the northeast coast of Madeira and from there you can quickly get to the Airport (12 minutes by car), to the nearest golf course in Santo da Serra (15 minutes by car) and to the neighbouring cities and villages like Machico, Santo da Serra, Santana and Faial, amongst other interesting places you can easily visit.

The Porto da Cruz village has, mini markets, restaurants equipped with several different kitchens, bars, transport services, health services, able to provide to the visitor, the satisfaction of emerging daily needs.

The weather in Madeira Island is generally quite stable and mild throughout the year.

Porto da Cruz has in its extensive and cut coast, two natural beaches of black sand, and a public swimming pool of salt water. The water temperature (22 centigrade) is surprisingly enjoyable in the summer.

MADEIRA´S CAPITAL , FUNCHAL.

Madeira's capital, Funchal, is an enchanting town set on a glittering bay against a background of soaring green mountains. Winding cobbled streets meander between elegant colonial-style buildings, nestling into the shelter of the verdant hillside. Funchals historic core overlooks the harbour and features some fine government buildings and stately 18th-century mansions. Its deep natural harbour attracted early settlers in the 15th century.

What to see. The simple whitewashed Sé Cathedral was built between 1486 and 1514. Inside, its main features are the magnificent mudejar ceiling of Madeira cedar wood and the voluptuous Baroque carving of the golden Sacramento chapel to the right of the main altar. Now a museum, the Quinta das Cruzes on Calçada do Pico is the house where the islands discoverer, João Gonçalves Zarco, once lived. Next door is the pretty 16th century church of Santa Clara where he lies buried. The Old Blandy Wine Lodge occupies part of a former Franciscan friary dating back to the 17th century. Guided visits include a tour of the cellars and a wine-tasting session.

Nearby. Opened to the public in 1960, the Botanical Gardens on the edge of town display plants from all over the world, including desert cacti, rainforest orchids and South African proteas. The famous toboggan ride from Monte to Funchal is an exhilarating experience and takes approximately 20 minutes. Madeiran tobogganing was invented as a form of passenger transport around 1850. Much frequented by Sir Winston Churchill in the 1950s, the pretty fishing village of Câmara de Lobos to the west of Funchal offers spectacular views of the worlds second-highest sea cliff, Cabo Girão (589 m). Also within easy reach of Funchal is the deep valley location of Curral das Freiras (Nuns Refuge) near the centre of the island.
