Make a self catering villa or holiday rental at Sao Vicente, Madeira Island your home away from home

The small town of Sao Vicente (population 3,439) is on the north coast of Madeira in the North Atlantic Ocean. The town has some amenities including schools, a large parish church, banks and local shops set around the plazas. The red tiled roofs and white washed houses make this a pretty town to choose for a self-catering holiday on Madeira.

Sao Vicente has some lovely sandy beaches which are a big attraction to the area along with the volcanic caves and lava tubes which are over 1000 metres long.

Things to Do at Sao Vicente, Madeira Island

Beaches

Some of the best beaches on Madeira are along the north coast and Sao Vicente is no exception. They offer ideal surfing conditions along with snorkeling, scuba diving, boat trips, sport fishing charters and whale and dolphin spotting.

Enjoy Local Food and Drink

Madeira has some fine local and international restaurants which serve mainly fish and seafood. Bread soup is a local delicacy along with "espada com banana", scabbard fish with baked banana. The Madeira wine makes a wonderful dessert wine to round off any meal.

Walk the Levadas

Madeira is ideal for walking along the levadas which were aqueducts built centuries ago to carry water down to the agricultural areas on the drier south side of the island. They now provide around 600 miles of scenic paved trails with stunning scenery and waterfalls.

Places to Visit Near Sao Vicente, Madeira Island

Santana

A little further along the coast from your Sao Vicente holiday villa is the small town of Santana, best known for its traditional A-framed houses, called "palheiros". These tiny houses are covered with thatched straw roofs and are mostly used for storage nowadays. There is also a cable car at Santana which takes visitors past a waterfall on the journey down the cliffs to the shore below.

Funchal

The main city on Madeira is Funchal and it is located in a natural amphitheatre around the busy port. The compact city centre has plenty of shops and restaurants along with botanical gardens, historic churches and wine cellars for sampling the locally made fortified wine. The old flower market with its exotic blooms is a popular attraction, along with the Cathedral, the Santa Clara Convent and the Sao Lourenco Palace.

Cabo Girao

One of the most popular places to visit from your Sao Vicente villa is the Cabo Girao cliffs. These are some of the world's highest ocean cliffs and offer dizzying views down to the sea 590m (1935 feet) below.

Weather at Sao Vicente, Madeira Island

The island's location, close to the Gulf stream, gives Sao Vicente mild winters and sunny summers, making it a popular destination all year-round for visitors. Daily highs range from 20-25°C (68-77°F) making it ideal for holidays all year round. The area does get rain showers between the sunshine.

Travel to Sao Vicente, Madeira Island

Madeira's only airport is Funchal International (FNC) Airport which is 30km (20 miles) from your Sao Vicente villa. The best way to reach Sao Vicente is by hiring a car and driving along the scenic mountain roads.

Wonderful stay in paradise

5 of 5
I can hardly express how wonderful this place is: breathtaking views over the city (Calheta) and the Atlantic Ocean, spotless and spacious rooms, a beautiful terrace to relax and to enjoy the sunset, ping-pong and pool table in the basement and last but not least the infinity pool on the first floor. We wished, we could stay there forever ! Blue Ocean Villa combined with the gorgeous hiking trails following the "Levadas" and the pleasant climate (23°C at day, 20°C at night) makes up for the perfect vacation. We were provided with a great info package by Bill, the owner, that included everything one needs to know. Some words of advice: except for the highways, streets in Madeira are very narrow, steep and rarely straight. We arrived in Funchal at 9:00 pm and rented a car to get to the Villa in the dark. We probably would have been lost without a GPS. However, use the exact GPS coordinates from the info package to get there and not the address !

A lovely property with beautiful views

5 of 5
The accommodation was everything we needed - clean and modern and the views from the patio were amazing. I would definitely recommend. A car is a must and the location is an ideal base to see the rest of the island from.
