Make a holiday rental home or villa in Ponto do Sol, Portugal your home away from home

On the south coast of the island of Madeira lies the small village of Ponta do Sol. Unspolit by tourism and very much a traditional Portuguese village, Ponta do Sol is most famous for its banana plantations, rugged mountain and ocean scenery, and the glorious weather that gives the village its name. Holiday rental accommodation in Ponta do Sol can mainly be found in the form of luxury villas and modern apartments.

Things to do in Ponta do Sol, Portugal

Many people head to Ponta do Sol for a relaxing break, and a favourite of many visitors is a meal in one of the village’s excellent restaurants that overlooks the rocky coast and blue ocean, and offer spectacular mountain views and fantastic quality sunsets. The village also has a decent selection of bars, should you wish to continue your night afterwards, and you will find the locals happy to mix with the tourists in a friendly and laid-back environment.

Those seeking a more active break can head for one of the many beaches that line the coast, try their hand at a spot of swimming, deep sea fishing or surfing, or hire a mountain bike and explore the area. The latter is a great way to discover the ‘real’ Madeira, and wind your way around the many banana and sugar plantations that exist in the area.

Madeira is perhaps most famous for its food, and bananas, mangoes, peaches, grapes, sugar, wines, fish and meat are just some of the local specialities. Food and drink are a big part of local life, and as well as making an effort to sample as much of this as possible (especially the local Madeira cake!), visitors may even be fortunate enough to arrive during a food festival, of which there are several throughout the year.

Places to visit on holiday in Ponta do Sol, Portugal

Madeira has a number of places of interest within a relatively small space. The capital Funchal is well worth exploring when your first arrive on the island, and boasts attractions that include a local food market, a botanical garden and an impressive port. Also consider at least a day trip to the rural and secluded haven of Santa Cruz.

Weather in Ponta do Sol, Portugal

The name Ponta do Sol translates literally as ‘tip of the sun’, and it’s easy to see how the village acquired this label. Average temperatures range from 30°C in the summer to 19°C during the winter, with hour upon hour of glorious sunshine. Humidity is also low throughout the year.

Flights to Ponta do Sol, Portugal

Very nice garden and beautiful views over the village and the ocean. One thing that would make the stay even better would be a dishwasher, but that is a minor detail. Had a lovely stay, would certainly consider to book again if we go to Madeira.

Rod was a great host and was very helpful on the couple of occasions when we needed to contact him. The villa is larger than it looks in the pictures, so would be great for a large family. We spent loads of time in the pool and enjoying the fabulous views. If you rent a car, ensure you get one powerful enough for the hilly Madeira landscape. We did, but upgraded on arrival at the airport. Convenient shops and restaurants nearby, but the car was necessary. Highly recommend the property, which is also convenient for walks and trips into Funchal and Calheta.

We were a family of 6 and the house was perfect for all of us. We felt very much at home as we were able to bbq, cook when we wanted to and just chill. This house is situated in a perfect location and we just loved Ponta do Sol as it was close to Funchal if you had a car. We will definitely be back here again... Lisgia, Robert and family
