Sao Cristovoa

Overview

A truly stunning modern villa built for a local millionaire in 2001 to a luxurious standard.

Situated on the island’s south east coast snuggling between a valley and a bay, Machico was the first settlement on the island when João Gonçalves Zargo landed in the bay in 1419. Although designated as the second city of Madeira, it is really a large town.
An excellent road infrastructure provides quick access to all parts of the island. Madeira International Airport is only 10 minutes drive, and the capital Funchal, can be reached in 20 minutes using the fast new dual carriageway. This provides a unique opportunity to live away from the traffic and noise of the capital, yet be within easy each of it. Properties of this size with such a large plot of land would cost substantially more money in Funchal.
Approximately 10 minutes drive is the Santo da Serra Golf Course. This magnificent golf complex includes 27 holes designed by the famous golf architect Robert Trent Jones and is home of the Madeira Island Open, part of the PGA European Tour. The course offers spectacular views of mountains, valleys and the best of Madeira’s dramatic coastline.
Down by the bay, a marina together with bars and restaurants are currently well under construction. The new Albatroz Beach & Yacht Club has recently been built and is situated close by.

The villa is very roomy (almost 4500 square feet) and is set in just over an acre of gardens adorned with fruit trees and flowers.

A 33 x 16 foot swimming pool and adjacent BBQ area make this a must stay villa for those requiring a memorable holiday

We had a wonderful two weeks at this property. The villas was exactly as descriped. Duarte was very helpful and also cheerful. Although the villas stated that a car was not essential we found that a car would have been useful as it was at the top of a steep hill! Thoroughly enjoyed two weeks and highly recommened.

This was our second visit to this villa. We noted that the property was much cleaner than last year. Duarte makes a splendid effort to keep the pool and garden area clean and tidy and was very helpful with a couple of queries we had for local services. It was good that the tv/dvd system worked this year (unlike last). Everything else was as expected (thats why we returned to this villa!) However, the price rise was a bit steep. The owners might consider leaving some local information for future guests eg taxi, car hire, restaurants, bus services and a comments book for guests. Also we think that some maintenance to the property outside is needed but it doesnt detract from a lovely visit and we will certainly consider returning.

We had a lovely time at this villa but would have benefited from having a car, the villa being situated a little way out of Machico up a hill.The villa was spacious, well furnished and equipped, although the running machine was not functioning during our stay.

We found the villa very clean and tidy and suited our needs.The children loved the pool and there was plenty of room to chill and relax. This villa was a great base to tour this very beautiful island and we recommend it and will be returning to Maderia.
