Ocean front Holiday Villas in the old town of Funchal

Explore the charm of Funchal's historic waterfront with a stay at Funchal Seaside Villas. Nestled in the heart of the old town, our family-owned property offers a unique experience with 4 distinct rental villas, complementing the main house where you may occasionally find us and meet my father, Carlos, who takes delight in sharing stories about our property and the rich history of our family.

Originally acquired by my grandfather, Celestino, the visionary patriarch of our family, this oceanfront property was a bold choice, met with skepticism from many who considered him eccentric for settling in the old town. However, with his keen business acumen, he foresaw the transformation of this area into the city's most desirable locale. Grandfather Celestino's foresight has indeed proven to be a wise decision, and we owe him our gratitude.

Each of our villas pays homage to the strong women who have shaped our family. The names Irlanda (my grandmother and Celestino's wife), Isabel (my mother), and Eufemia (my mother-in-law) symbolize the enduring strength and influence of these remarkable women. Their exemplary lives serve as an inspiration, and our villas stand as a humble tribute to their legacy.

Finally, our latest addition is the Plantations Villa, a poignant representation of the decades-long toil on the land that has defined the essence of our property. This villa stands as a tribute to the enduring legacy of hard work and dedication that has shaped the very fabric of our family history.

Our guests words…

“A beautiful villa set in an absolutely stunning location. I had gleaned from previous reviews that we would enjoy our stay- we were not disappointed. The outdoor area is spacious with wondeful views out to sea and across to the port. The sea is accessable from the garden and a nice temperature for swimming. The pool is also warm. Inside, the space is beautiful: tastefully decorated, well equipped and smart. We received lots of thoughtful touches that made us feel Patricia was welcoming friends, not guests. Cake, fruit and a bottle of wine greeted us on arrival. During the week of our stay, cakes would appear by the door; after a long day walking the lavadas this touch was most welcome. The location is perfect, both for easy walking into Funchal and for eateries and buses to the start of lavada walks. Carlos, Patricia's father, greeted us on arrival...”

“Great place to stay! The house is very beautiful decorated. Perfect location, with Atlantic view, swimming pool and great garden and on walking distance to the old town. Perfect place for a great holiday and to discover Madeira!”

Bertha de Vries

“Luxury Villa with everything you need: nearby sea, beach, infinity pool, banana tree terrace, big house... and in our opinion the best view on the whole island. Eg. Sunrises and sunsets are beautiful here. 10-15 minutes walk to Old city restaurant street. This must be one of the best places to stay in Funchal. Not so many places are located next to sea and still have big yard. Great value overall.”
