IDEALLY LOCATED VILLA RIGHT ABOVE THE OCEAN

Photos and Description of this 9 bedroom holiday villa in Santa Cruz - Villa São Pedro

Villa and apartments located on the sea side, facing the Atlantic Ocean

The villa is situated near Santa Cruz city, about 15 km away from Funchal, the main city of Madeira Island.

It is the perfect luxurious alternative to big hotels and provides you with a familiar and intimate home environment.

The four-storey structure comprises the house with four bedrooms, a large three bedroom flat on the third floor, another stunning two bedroom flat on the second floor, and a sea-level bedroom flat on the first one.

From each balcony you can enjoy a wonderful sea view and look straight out to the Desertas islands. There you are offered the chance to watch the rising sun on the horizon or feel a spell of dry weather from the African Continent.

The lovely blue Atlantic ocean is but 10 metres away from your bedroom window.

Enjoy taking sunbaths, diving in our large swimming pool, or dip in the Atlantic ocean. The host will be at the Villa waiting for you and will supply you the key. You can do the check in any time

Additional Details: The apartments have big balconies overlooking the Atlantic Ocean, and you have direct access to the sea.

A maid service is provided once per week.

If you are interested in playing golf, there are two golf courses less than 20 minutes drive away.

Upon confirmation of your reservation you will receive an e-mailed attached document with all the instructions you may require to fulfil your holiday, including driving directions - by taxi or car rental, and map.

Madeira Island: Madeira’s legendary beauty and exceptional climate have long made this small Atlantic island a popular tourist destination. Enjoy a tropical Eden-like landscape and climate packed with exotic flowers and wildlife.

Verdant and with varied and stunning scenery, it is definitely worth exploring the island, and the recent network of roads and tunnels make it so easy now.

Some more reasons to visit Madeira:

- Moderate climate during all year, normally around 20°C-24°C

- Wonderfully warm local people

- Superb landscape and “levadas” (unique irrigation canals that offer the chance of trekking everywhere on the island)

- the famous semi-tropical forest 'the Laurissilva' (witch is unique to Madeira and is a protected World Heritage Site)

- Three beautiful 18-hole golf courses

- Premier fishing location, with its waters home to a wide variety of species

- Boat trips and whale and dolphin spotting

- World famous New Year's Eve fireworks

- Flower Festival

- Funchal's Christmas lights

Unique and enjoyable place to stay

  • 5 out of 5
Fantastic ocean views, welcoming owners and comfortable accommodation. Short walk to Santa Cruz village for cafes, shops, town square and easy drive to Funchal. Excellent fish restaurant Mar e alta on the seafront in Machico. Overlooks airport landing strip to left but all adds to sights! Recommended.

A wonderful week on the beautiful island!

  • 5 out of 5
We stayed here for a week with a group of friends and had an amazing time. The views from the roof terrace and appartments needs to be seen to be believed and we even managed to see dolphins in the distance (with the aid of binoculars). The villa is well situated, a 10 minute walk from santa cruz where there are bars, restaurants and a market. There is also a bus stop within a 2 minute walk. A massive thank you to the owners for a really memorable holiday and we hope other people enjoy the views with the binoculars we left. Make sure you go to central restaurant in canico for some suberb meat

Perfect holidays!

  • 5 out of 5
Thank you very much for having us (2 couples) in your lovely appartment with breathtaking view from balcony and each bedroom and wonderful pool! We have fantastic holidays. Your villa is beatifully located, right above the ocean in lovely Santa Cruz (market with local vegs, fruits and fish and many restaurants). We visited whole island and all 4 of us agreed that it is the best place to stay in Madeira. From Santa Cruz it is only 20 min drive to Funchal and by bus 30-35 min (bus stop 2 mins from villa). We do not like spending holidays in bigger cities as Funchal is, even though we were there for whole day and it is worth seeing. With a car or with taxi we have few trips including many walks in the mountains, seeing levadas, having showers in waterfalls, etc. It was amazing. In your pool we have whole day volleyball turnament, which we enjoyed very much and we were having fun like 5 years old children. Thank you, we will come back!!!

AMAZING AND SPECTACULAR HOUSE, THIS IS PARADISE

  • 5 out of 5
Dear Rosendo,

Thank you for having such a wonderful place in paradise. We had to pinch ourselves when we were there having a drink overlooking the ocean. True PARADISE. It was very hard trying to decide where to stay in Madeira because there is a lot to offer, after a lot of research we are delighted that we selected your beautiful house. My husband and I stayed in the 2bedroom apartment with 2 kids, this was perfect for us. The properties were clean and well maintained. Loved my balcony and watching sunrise in the morning. My sister and her family stayed in the house, this was very comfortable and a lot space for the family. We loved being on that gorgeous balcony over looking the Atlantic Ocean, very memorable. That pool was spendid and the kids enjoyed every minute of it. We walked into Santa Cruz every day to get fresh rolls and cakes from bakery and had a cafe latte at cafe's in Santa Cruz. Lots of restaurants to choose from. The Pools are great and the waterpark is a must for the kids. They have a nice park in Santa Cruz for the children and the people are very friendly. 7 nights was not enough time there. This house has everything you need, you could not ask for a better location and it has all the amenities. The owner Rosendo is very polite and helpful. You can call him at any time and ask anything. You can catch the bus from up the street into Funchal. Very easy and cheap. The food in Madeira is great and cheap. We did not hire a car as we have family there and taxi's are cheap. If you are comfortable in hiring a car then do so.

Thankyou Rosendo from Zelia & Lucia

Owner's Response: Dear Zelia & family, thank you so much for your fantastic review of our villa.
I am delighted that you enjoyed your holiday in Madeira. The nearby towns of Santa Cruz and Machico are full of interesting places to visit, and also it is definitely worth the drive to Funchal.
Our Villa makes a great base to explore the island and then relax on the large pool and terrace with a glass of wine!
We hope you can return for some more relaxation very soon! Best wishes & regards, Rosendo

Great place to relax

  • 4 out of 5
We rented parts of the villa for a family vacation of eight, and everyone agreed it was the perfect place. When I close my eyes, I still see the white walls contrasting with the blue ocean: stunning!
We would sleep in, start the day with a jump into the pool and over coffee leisurely decide on the day's agenda. Since we had rented two cars, we had the island at our fingertips: we went hiking along the levadas, explored Funchal, went to the black sand beach which is 20 min away by car. At night, we'd either barbeque fish bought fresh at the Funchal market or we'd walk into Sta Clara for a very reasonable meal at a restaurant. This place beats any hotel!

We were surprised by the proximity of the airport, but It is not a hassle at all, since only about 10 airplanes land on any given day. (This is not Heathrow...).
We have not been this relaxed - and tanned- in a long time!

Here in the Atlantic Ocean, not too far from the centre of Europe, we find the island of Madeira, famous for its friendly people, exceptional natural beauty and mild climate.

Madeira Islands are just a short trip from Europe, to a destination where you can combine holidays on the beach, in the mountains or in the city.

It's the ideal place to relax and restore the balance of mind and body that you need to face the stress of daily life.

Madeira is also very famous for its natural environment, where the most important feature is the Laurissilva Forest, a relic of the Tertiary Age, which has been classified by UNESCO as a World Natural Heritage Site. It is no less well known for its year-round outdoor sports.

The island’s mild climate and a water temperature that never goes below 17ºC mean that you can be on the go all the time. Its traditions and customs, visible in its old buildings, museums and churches and even in regional products like its wine and embroidery.
