Funchal villa description

Amazing villa right on top of the Atlantic ocean, with the luxury of unlimited sea views with swimming pool and tropical garden. A very peaceful location right on top of sea in the most sought after location in all madeira - The Old Town of Funchal. 2 Beautiful houses in a charming central location in the old town of Funchal madeira, the climate is warm and sunny year-round. Together both houses sleep 6 people (4 in the Beach House and 2 in the Surf Studio). No car necessary everything is a short walk away including Funchal fruit, vegetable and fish Market, the old town restaurants and cafés and the beach. A dream location very very rare to find. The house was renovated into a chaming holiday home. Very quiet and peaceful with unlimited sea views, outside dining possible all year with comfortable furniture and BBQ. A modern, stylish decoration which is also comfortable and family friendly. Each unit has its private outside dining areas, BBQ, relaxing sofas, balcony - only the swimming pool is shared. All bedrooms with sea views. Bathrooms have large showers & modern fittings. Fully furnished Kitchen with separate dining area. Beautiful living room with unbelievable Atlantic views with TV and free wireless Internet. Pool gets sun all day and is very warm. Plenty of sun beds, outside sofas and armchairs. Very private & secluded dream property.

Enjoy spectacular views from the poolside and seafront terraces as you sip a cocktail and watch the glorious sunset from your unique position on top of the sea - you can only hear the ocean day and night - its a silent sunshine retreat. We recommend making the most of the BBQ, fresh fish and meat are just nearby in the market were you can walk to, why not try the delicious Vinho Verde (or some Madeira with ice the new drink on the island). The swimming pool gets sun all day, and this part of Funchal is by far the sunniest in all Madeira making it the perfect winter home. The houses are fully equipped to make your stay very comfortable be it for a week or for many months. All the attractions are nearby, golf, swimming, diving, walking in the mountains and glorious gardens. Every month of the year is a great time to visit the island as we have a mild climate (in 2011 & 2012 it has been a completely dry year with no rain at all) there are events each month going on such as fireworks, flower festival, golf open, carnival, big game fishing, garden shows, music festivals & much more to keep you entertained year round.

We have 7 other fabulous seafront holiday rentals properties in the Old Town of Funchal, see our website for information on 1, 2 and 3 bedroom dream villas: www.funchalcottages.co.uk

Levada walks, golf and swimming nearby: The villa is the ideal base to explore the beautiful island of Madeira, its strategic location in the heart of Funchal means it is just by the seaside were you can swim, water ski, scuba dive, sail and much more. The 2 golf courses are very near, Palheiro Golf is just 10min away and Santo da Serra Golf is just 20min away. Madeira is a walkers paradise and from here you can reach the mountains and discover the levada trails. A bus stop is nearby, and the main road to the airport is very easy to catch.

                              Year Purchased: 2012

                              About: We have assembled a collection of eight fabulous seaside villas in the old town that are run as successful self-catering properties. Alongside this business, we launched the award winning publishing company, Funchal-Publications in 2005 that has several travel books on the Island. This complement of books, history & local knowledge is something we like to pass on to our guests, and makes each holiday experience special.

                              Why Funchal:
                              Our villas each have their unique character, with the luxury of space - a sense of history and offering the best Madeira has to offer. This beautiful villa was know as 'A Casa do Ingles' the house of the Englishman and it blows you away the minute you walk through the door as it has so much land looking onto the sea with nothing in front. Below are some charming agricultural lands tended by ancient farmers that add to the unique feeling of the house. A traditional gem of a Madeiran house were seaviews can be seen from nearly every room. There is no road noise as the house does not back onto any street but only has the sea as its source of sound. Very rare to find such a large plot of land with a swimming pool all seafront in the heart of the old town of Funchal - Madeira´s best real estate location

                              The Unique Benefits at this Villa:
                              Huge expanse of seafront terraces looking onto the Atlantic ocean with a swimming pool & garden. Located in the un-spoilt Old Town of Funchal that is such a beautiful friendly place with bars restaurants, shops & beaches. The climate is very warm here & its peaceful with very little noise. Decoration is the prefect compliment to the views and overall sense of natural beauty.
