Guestbook comments from the owner
Having spent a lovely week in Villa Dragoeiro in January, we returned for a fortnight this November. The villa is absolutely first rate - spacious, light and airy, with well furnished rooms, very pleasant balconies and sitting out areas. and in a super position, near to the Botanic and Palheiro Gardens, and within easy reach of the old town and marina. We absolutely could not fault either the accommodation or Jose and his son, Joao, who are so friendly, and for whom nothing is too much trouble. I am already planning my next visit - in April or May when I intend going to the rose garden on the north side of the island and revisiting other favourite places.

Fantastic Holiday in Madeira

  • 5 out of 5
Myself and 3 friends all aged 60+ stayed at this lovely villa for a week in January. The owner, Jose, met us at the airport and informed us of the buses, taxis & local facilities etc. There was a welcome pack in the kitchen so we could have fed ourselves on arrival although we were taken into Funchal & sampled the local cuisine. The villa was spotless & very well equipped. Jose was always available & willing to give advice if we needed it. While on excursions we we met up with people who were staying in hotels & we felt we had the much better deal. I can say quite frankly that it is one of the nicest places I have stayed & have no hesitation in recommending it or Madeira
Book your trips early in the week as they don't go every day & you may miss out on the ones you want to do.If you like walking make sure you do the levada 25 springs and dont forget the Palheiro Gardens - easy to get to on a bus - full of beautiful flowers with a lovely coffee shop selling great cakes!

Villa Dragoeiro - Funchal

  • 5 out of 5
Jose is an incredibly attentive and helpful host and he went to far greater lengths than he need have done to make our stay here enjoyable and comfortable. There were four adults in our party and we are all agreed on this. Other reviewers of Villa Dragoeiro have mentioned the rather noisy dogs in neighbouring houses and, in order for this to be an honest review, we have to agree - they do bark a lot! The villa itself is exactly as described and is probably better in real life than in the pictures - the facilities provided are excellent and there really are free telephone and Skype calls to most Countries. During our two week stay in February we had wall to wall sunshine every day except one so we did not need to use the large flat screen Sony television with it's range of a hundred or so video films but, had there been some wet days, this facility was available. There really is a little gym on the top floor with good equipment.
All the members of our party would have preferred duvets on the beds rather than the sheets and blankets provided but we accept that this is very much a personal thing and, come the summer months, most guests would probably hardly notice. The February evenings and nights got a little cold but there was an adequate supply of electric heaters around the house so it was not difficult to keep warm. We ate in most nights and the kitchen facilities were better than adequate.
All in all a very good holiday villa - and, in all probability, better than some guests own homes.

Brilliant Time in Madeira

  • 5 out of 5
Had a wonderful time at Villa Dragoeiro our party was made up of myself my wife, son & daughter & our two grand children who were aged 3 & 6 so space was important, I'm glad to say the villa was big enough to handle all of us easily. Jose is an excellent host & will do everything he can to make your stay as enjoyable as possible, the facilities are as he describes in his advertisement & I would recommend the car hire he offers. The only downside is as is mentioned in one of the other reviews the dogs who can sometimes be a little over the top with the barking, although this doe's not spoil the holiday. I am sure that anybody renting the villa will not be disappointed, so I would just like to thankyou Jose & maybe see you next year.

Owner's Response: I am happy to know that all of you have enjoyed your stay at Villa Dragoeiro. Your review is very insightful and helpful. In fact this house is quite large, with diverse spaces, which allows great privacy for large groups. Guests can enjoy the gardens of the house, make a nice meal at the outside barbecue, watching a movie in the Homecinema, sunbathing or reading in the two balconies, use the gym, surf the internet, etc...
Thank you for having been in this house and it will be a pleasure to receive you again.

El dueño Jose es muy amable y se ofrece a que tu estancia sea lo más agradable posible y se preocupa de que todo este bien.
Nos llevó a un restaurante muy bueno, nos dejó un GPS con las direcciones más importantes, la nevera tenia comida, leche, fruta...Hasta había flores.
En los baños habiá gel y champú, secador de pelo.
En fin no nos faltó de nada.
Si vuelvo a Madeira no lo dudo me quedo en Villa Dragoeiro

A wonderful house in Funchal

  • 5 out of 5
We are two families with teenagers and we had a very nice holiday in this beautiful, really spacious house in Funchal. The house is everything that the site says and even more. The internet connection is really good and all the technology (home cinema etc) is almost unbelievable. Even the teenagers were impressed! :))
Everything is very clean and comfortable and designed in a good taste. It can be seen that the owner has thought about even the smallest details. Like others have said before me, José was a very nice and helpful host! He speaks very good English, too.
I would recommend this house to everybody, but I would also like to point out some details for considering! The house is situated 1.5-2 km from the centre, not far away, but it's on the steep hillside, so the walk to the centre and back would not be everybody's cup of tea. We usually took a taxi! Of course, this location gives you these terrific views over the port of Funchal.
There are some quite noisy dogs in the neighbourhood! Other than that, it is a very quiet and nice street, in the middle of local people, so different from the tourist areas.
One thing that we missed was a separate toilet or bathroom downstairs - there are 3 bathrooms in the house, but all of them are ensuite and upstairs. So, one of the bedrooms is without a bathroom and the person(s) who stay there have to use the bathroom that is attached to another bedroom. But of course, this is a very small minus next to all the pluses that this beautiful house has.
We will always remember our nice breakfasts and candlelight evenings on the wonderful terrace of Villa Dragoeiro...

Owner's Response: Thank you for your kind review. I understand your surprise with the hills on Madeira. Villa Dragoeiro is 200 meters up the sea level and at Estonia the highest hill has 300 meters up the sea level. Is one of ours attractions for ours visitors but sometimes not very comfortable. If you are looking for to know a little of the kind of life of madeirian people, their costumes, etc. it´s a good choice spend some days in a local house, completely different of a hotel. It was really nice to meet you and will be a pleasure to receive you in future.

Car: recommended

Villa Dragoeiro is a holiday home licensed and approved by Madeira Tourist Board. Is located in a residential area, 3 minutes of the motorway, for vehicular access to the rest of the Island. The highway is above the house, so in the house we do not hear any street noise.

The house has a high quality internal and external finishes, spacious rooms, airy and very light and many additional desirable amenities.

The main house has three bedrooms with double beds and ensuite bathrooms and one bedroom with two single beds; there is a fully equipped modern kitchen, a well appointed living room, a small gym on the third floor with large terrace and splendid views of Funchal and the mountains, an additional second bedroom floor balcony, an entry hall, a wonderful exterior first floor patio (ideal for romantic dining), a parking place and the adjacent garden.

From the terrace, you can enjoy a panoramic view over Funchal bay and admire the arriving and departing of large cruise ships.

The house is ideal for families or small groups up to 10 people.

The house is located near the Old Town of Funchal (1.5 km downhill). Here are some of the best restaurants on the Island with various local and international cuisine. Villa Dragoeiro sitting room

In the Old Town also you can visit the Historical Centre of Madeira Museum and other interesting museums in Funchal. Particularly of interest are the wine museums and tasting parlors of major Madeiran wine companies. From the Old Town you also can take the cable car to the beautiful gardens of Jardim Botânico and Monte, though it is a short and lovely walk to the Jardim Botanico. Should you walk to the old city (recommended) you will come first to the famous fish, fruit and flower market of the Mercado dos Lavradores.

Madeira is famous for its lush vegetation, with all varieties of plants and flowers and its sub-tropical gardens. The Laurisilva forests of Madeira have been declared a World Heritage Monument. Here there are also many exciting and gorgeous Levada walks. There are two championship golf courses. Also there is ocean swimming, sailing, game fishing, etc.,in addition to the marina in Funchal with modern basins for yachts and motor boats.

Although the coast is dominated by cliffs, there is access to the ocean. Approximately 15m by car is the protected bay of Machico, with its fine golden sand beach good for swimming with children, and the natural refuge of the Deserta Islands are but a brief commercial boat ride away.

Villa details:

The ground floor in the house includes a large kitchen with dining table for 6 to 8 people, a living room and a covered outdoor terrace with dining table facing an adjacent traditional Madeiran barbecue.
