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

Madeira is a relatively small island, and Ponta do Sol lies just 31km from the airport, which is near Funchal (FNC).

Funchal receives regular flights from the UK through several airlines, including Thomson, Thomas Cook and easyJet.

                                                              An absolutely stunning, comfortable modern villa!

                                                              This villa has everything you could wish for and more. From the high spec accommodation to the breath taking views and peaceful atmosphere. It felt like "home from home" but with the relaxing holiday extras. Theres so much to do, or little, with the lovely heated pool and amazing veiws it is perfect to sit and unwind, or take a short ride to the resturants in Ponta Do Sol for great local food, and to Funchal for the busy market and cable car rides over the mountains to the summer palace. Ten days was not enough for me, I highly recommend this villa and will be returning soon.

                                                              Au bout d'une petite ruelle quand on arrive dans le jardin, que l'on découvre la maison puis la vue sur Ponta Do Sol et l'océan : waouh En fait c'est comme sur les photos mais en mieux La propreté que ce soit dans le Jardin ou la maison, est irréprochable avec des superbes vues. En plus c'est calme. Manque peut être un peu de documents avec des renseignements sur Madère .... ça serait encore un Plus. Le propriétaire (Carlos) est très gentil et très accueillant et avec lui pas de PB ( Monsieur No Problème ) , et je pense que ces qualités se retrouvent chez la plupart des Madériens . Nous pouvons que recommander cette maison qui en plus de son super emplacement à Ponta Do Sol est aussi très bien située pour visiter Madère. Plus personnellement, c'était de très bonne vacances et la cerise sur le gâteau a été la fête des fleurs à Funchal ... et la parade inoubliable
