Why Cristina Abreu chose Funchal
Our villas each have their unique character, with the luxury of space - a sense of history and offering the best Madeira has to offer. This beautiful villa was know as 'A Casa do Ingles' the house of the Englishman and it blows you away the minute you walk through the door as it has so much land looking onto the sea with nothing in front. Below are some charming agricultural lands tended by ancient farmers that add to the unique feeling of the house. A traditional gem of a Madeiran house were seaviews can be seen from nearly every room. There is no road noise as the house does not back onto any street but only has the sea as its source of sound. Very rare to find such a large plot of land with a swimming pool all seafront in the heart of the old town of Funchal - Madeira´s best real estate location
What makes this villa unique
Huge expanse of seafront terraces looking onto the Atlantic ocean with a swimming pool & garden. Located in the un-spoilt Old Town of Funchal that is such a beautiful friendly place with bars restaurants, shops & beaches. The climate is very warm here & its peaceful with very little noise. Decoration is the prefect compliment to the views and overall sense of natural beauty.
Guestbook comments from the manager
What a joy to stay at the Surf Studio, so wonderful to enjoy the sunshine and views after a miserable winter a home. Thanks for the welcome items and the house being so clean and pretty - we have stayed in many places but this is really one of the nicest by far. Please thank all the team for the airport pick up and their assistance during our stay, we will be back in October. All the best.
