Great Villa in a calm neighborhood

4 of 5
We are a group of 7 people from Germany and lived in the Villa Fonte do Mar for a week. It's a Great Villa with a stunning ocean view in a beautiful and calm neighborhood. We were also impressed by the scale of the house. 3 floors, a big “loft like” living room and a private elevator are features you don't find every day. Linda welcomed us at the Villa when we arrived and showed us around. She's a lovely person and very dedicated to make your stay the best experience possible. Thanks again to her for making us feel “at home” instantly. The pictures on the website are pretty much on point and resemble the Villa perfectly. It offers more then enough space for a luxury stay with up to 8 people. In the outside areas there is maybe some room for improvements such as the plants around the Villa that might need some more care or the upper balcony which might need a small paint job. But that's really nitpicking and shouldn’t distract from the overall great experience. So if you are looking for a great relaxing stay with a small group… don’t look any further. You just found one of the greatest options in Madeira.

Great villa

5 of 5
We had a great holiday in Madeira. The villa is very clean and tidy with everything we needed. We loved lounging around the pool and taking the nearby cable car down to the beach. Would thoroughly recommend this villa.
