This villa is in a great location not in the tourist area of funchal but only a short trip in the car .Local restaurants have great food at local prices not like funchal.the view from the villa is something money can't buy.the villa has many stairs as like mist on the island as it's a very hilly place..the villa is also clean and the owner stays on the top floor who is there for any information you need or help.we found Manuel very hospitable and welcoming. If we decide to make a return trip to maderia this will be where we stay.
Amazing villa, great owners, incredible views
The pictures of this villa do not do it justice! It's an amazing villa with great facilities and lovely owners. Manuel and his wife were just the best hosts. We were initially apprehensive about the owners living on the top floor but we shouldn't of worried. They were on hand when required and incredibly helpful and nice. The rest of the time they were invisible and we never felt watched in any way. Having them there was a big plus point!
As for the villa, it's all about the views,, worth every penny! It is very hilly around the villa and everywhere in madeira but it wasn't a big issue and all of the children and adults managed fine! Manuel can help sort out taxis if you require them. Funchal is 10 minutes or so from the villa and catching the bus at the top of the hill was easy. Loads to do and the kids loved the entire holiday. I would recommend having the pool heated, especially if you have kids.
All in all a fantastic place and would definitely go back and a massive part of that is down to Manuel and his wife.
This is one of the best villas on the island and you will not be disappointed
Dear Mathew, thank you so much for the kind words. Knowing that you and your family had an amazing time staying at our villa makes our
effort all the more worthwhile.
We shall be delighted to welcome you all back again.
Wishing you the best
Manuel & Crew at Villa Babel
Very good, spacious accommodation reasonably priced.
If you like Madeira and have a large group you really can't go wrong with this property.
Madeira is a unique experience. It is not a beach holiday but I would go back. Weather is temperate for the latitude. Food and entertainment is reasonably priced. Being an Island I expected things to be more.
We went with my family for my 60th birthday, there were 11 of us. We had a great time. Thoroughly recommend this vacation to anybody.
Fantastic property, we will be back!
We stayed in Villa Babel in August 2015. The villa was spacious and perfect for our family of 12. Very clean with all amenities nearby. Swimming pool was amazing and much enjoyed..children were particularly happy. We were also very lucky to spot a whale from our balcony! Special holiday indeed..we'll be back again and for a longer holiday! Thanks for having us.
Super, superbe la villa Babel...
Superbe ! En un seul mot… tout était vraiment super, une magnifique maison avec de grands espaces, une vue imprenable sur l’océan, un accueil chaleureux avec le propriétaire Manuel, toujours a votre service mais invisible…les chambres soignées tout équipées, propre, une magnifique piscine… terrasse, de quoi faire des courses pas trop loin. Nous étions 16 au total avec 5 enfants et c’était parfait. je ne peu que la recommander car nous avons tous passé une excellente semaine …et avec un bon zoom…nous avons même photographié des baleines depuis la terrasse… Merci Manuel pour votre accueil et peut-être à bientôt
Pierre-André et toute la famille .. :o)
Situated in the Garajau overlooking the Atlantic Ocean and Funchal harbour, Villa Babel is only a short walk away from the High Road. There you can find a number of quality restaurants, bars & cafes with a good range of local gourmet awaiting to be explored. For seashore swimming just walk down the Garajau Beach just below 'Christ the King' statue; an amazing setting right in the heart of Garajau's Natural Reserve.
We are only 10 mins by car to Funchal, the capital of Madeira. There you can take a dolphin & whale watching boat trip or simply treat yourself to a wine tasting visit to the Madeira Wine Cellars. To complement you holiday, visit the Reid's Hotel for an afternoon tea in the 'good-old' colonial style.
For a good night's entertainment which includes dinner, drinks and a truly professional show try the Pestana Casino in Funchal.
Locally in Garajau there is entertainment nightly in the Don Pedro Hotel.
Otherwise, just bring your favorite music and relax in our ample lounge.
Other Activities: whale & dolphin watching
Golf: Golfers will be pleased to know that the 18-hole Palheiro golf course is no more than a 10minute drive. Classic Madeiran hills, ridges and deep valleys have all been incorporated into the terrain to produce a dramatically interesting course, with stunning views over the Funchal Bay.
The spectacular 27-hole Santo da Serra golf course (also known as Campo de Golfe and home to the Madeira Island Open) is just over 20mns drive away. This is Madeira’s oldest golf course. It sits high up on a plateau and is marvelously scenic with inspirational views back up the mountains and out over the Atlantic below
