Villa overview - owner's description
Chic Villa do Monte sits within a small neighbourhood, commanding an elevated position overlooking the bay at Funchal, the capital city of Madeira. Surrounded by traditional village atmosphere and stunning hillside scenery, this contemporary holiday home is a place to feel welcomed and relaxed.
The inside of the villa is an oasis of calm, featuring crisp, white walls and soft furnishings that create a sense of both peace and luxury. Complementing the neutral colour scheme and light wood floors are stylish, modern design features, which is a theme that continues into the stunning outside space.
On the ground floor is an open-plan living/dining/kitchen space. It's incredibly bright and airy, thanks to the numerous glass sliding doors that offer both beautiful views and direct outdoor access. There's beautiful designer furniture throughout the space, with quirky pieces adding personality and charm. Within the lounge area is a large sofa where everyone can get together in front of the television in the evenings, with a fireplace creating an even cosier atmosphere. Behind the lounge is a dining table that seats up to eight people, with the ultra-modern and sleek kitchen conveniently located right next to it. There's also an office on this floor, which is perfect for enjoying some quiet time alone.
To the first floor are three of the four bedrooms. The master bedroom has a double bed, large flat screen television, huge walk-in closet and an ensuite bathroom that features a walk-in shower with rejuvenating waterfall feature. There's also a fabulous daybed perfectly positioned to make the most of the spectacular views over the bay. The other two bedrooms both have a double bed and ensuite bathroom each, as well as a balcony terrace.
On the lower-ground floor is the fourth bedroom with two double beds. There's also a bathroom with walk-in shower.
The outside space is of a generous size and features several different areas. Directly accessed via the living/dining/kitchen area is a terrace with outdoor seating, as well as a table for enjoying al fresco dining with fantastic sea views. Further into the garden are areas of lawn dotted with exotic trees and plants for an idyllic feel. The star of the shower, however, is the large, private swimming pool that lies right at the edge of the garden, giving unparalled views across the bay at Funchal. By the pool are several sun loungers and a beautiful daybed for taking in the scenery without getting your feet wet!

Being part of a small neighbourhood means that amenities are just moments away at Villa do Monte. They include a supermarket, restaurants, cafes and a bakery, which are all within a five-minute drive. As you get closer to the coast, an even greater choice of restaurants, bars, supermarkets and shops become available.
The centre of Funchal, Madeira's capital city, is less than a 10-minute drive away. This port city is full of cosmopolitan charm and centuries of history, with everything being within really easy walking distance. The old town area is where you can stroll through narrow, cobbled streets and take in the beauty of all the historic buildings found along them. Many of them date back to the 15th century and there are plenty of picturesque churches to spot. Ride the cable car up to Monte, close to where the villa is, for some truly breathtaking views of the botanical garden and across the sea.
Also less than a 10 minute journey by car is the coastal town of Canico. The most famous attraction here is the Christ the King statue that sits on a viewpoint by the Garajau Marine Reserve. The views from here across the sea are beautiful, and get even more impressive if you continue walking to the tip of the peninsula. Make sure you visit the lovely pebbled beach down below too. There are plenty of great overall walking opportunities here, whether it's along the tops of cliffs or through the lush hills. Mountain biking, snorkelling and diving are also very popular activities in Canico.
This villa does not have any reviews but the agent has 10 reviews for their other properties.
