Villa overview - owner's description

A sleek minimalist villa overlooking the sea—what could be more stylishly serene than a stay at Villa Fontanella? Close to the beach, airport and the city, the property is nevertheless private and secluded.

The villa opens to a spacious terrace with lounge and dining areas and views of the surrounding Atlântico Ocean. Dip your feet in the angular swimming pool, read or nap on one of the chaise longues or sip a cool drink at the bar. Flip on the indoor sound system to set a mood, share photos via Wi-Fi and store your best bottles in the wine fridge.

Garajau is located on the sunny, dry, southern coast of Madeira, the Garajau Penthouse is situated in the fashionable district of Garajau, midway between the airport, and the capital, Funchal. Taxi journey time to both is just 15 - 20 minutes.
Garajau has long been known to be one of Madeira's high class residential areas and is named after the black-headed sea birds, terns, which nest in the cliffs.

Garajau's high street combines the Hotel Dom Pedro Garajau on one side of the road and a bank (Barclays), a multitude of shops, bakeries, coffee shops, ice cream shop, a few patisseries and medium sized well stocked mini-markets with ATM outside, several restaurants, bars and apartments on the other.

Ponta do Garajau
Just below the village is a 200m high headland called Ponta do Garajau which is on the perimeter of the entry point to Funchal Bay, with its fine miradouro - a monumental statue of Christ with outstretched arms, erected in 1927 on the headland 200m above the sea. The statue is similar to the larger & more famous statues in Lisbon & Rio de Janeiro. It has good views west to the Bay of Funchal. Ponta do Garajau is a wonderful spot to watch the sun go down.

The section of sea by Ponta do Garajau is a conservation area - "Reserva Natural Parcial do Garajau". It was one of Europe's first underwater nature reserves and is a marine sanctuary for whales, dolphins and seals. It has a beautiful re-developed beach with a very nice cafe bar/ restaurant.

The advert does not do this property any justice, it is much better in the flesh.
The villa just needs some TLC and modernising to make it a 5*.
The view is spectacular.
