Overview

Property set in a quiet cul-de-sac in the residential suburb of Boa Nova in Funchal city, minutes’ drive from and to the centre and right next to the Botanical Gardens, with fine commerce of the best desirable local horticulture, fruit and fishmongers, a movie house, and pubs within comfortable walking distances. The house is a solid construction of a modern and relaxing design in three floors. It is in an elevated position yet the gardens are mainly level and well kept stocked with some of the finest specimens of local flowers with their vibrant colours. The view from the house and gardens is spectacular in the day and at night over the valley to the Port, perfect for New Years Eve firework displays.

The villa is well equipped with commodities and furniture providing the sort of comfort you would expect in your own house. On the ground floor there is a garage, a laundry and a stock room accessed from the front gate and from the above floors. On the first floor you can find a living and dining rooms together in one large piece and next to it a large fully equipped kitchen. On the same floor there is a very suitable toilet and shower room. On the top floor 3 excellent rooms, (one of them with ensuite bathroom), 1 more bathroom, a large terrace facing the bay and an open room where there are 2 futons for extra guests (children). In total there are 3 bathrooms in the house, 2 of them complete with bathtub.
Outside, guests enjoy a nice garden, terrace, BBQ and private parking place.

Sleeps 6 persons, self catering.


The town
Madeiras 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.
