About the property

Casa do Miradouro

The spacious studio is part of 'Casa do Miradouro', a recent construction from 2014. There are 2 very spacious units (50m2) - Appartment Pitanga and studio Nespera - which are located at the seafront (altitude 97m) in the village of Ponta Delgada - the most sunny and warmest spot on the North Coast of Madeira. Both enjoy amazing panoramic views of the ocean (all the way to Porto Moniz), as well as beautiful mountain scenery. Just behind the property there's a traditional Madeiran vineyard. The property has an infinity pool, and is tiled with a nice flower of life. There are no electric cables hanging in front, all the views are unobstructed...a rarity on Madeira. Whether you take a dive in the pool, relax your muscles in the sauna, or enjoy a bubble massage in the jacuzzi, Casadomiradouro is always inviting. The house was designed by an architect with environmental sustainability in mind (solar panels, cork insulation, natural materials, biological garden,...). It carries an A+ label. The studio Nespera - on the first floor - was designed with your enjoyment in mind! The large windows from floor to ceiling let the sunlight in and ensure you enjoy the all-round views. The large balcony / terrace offers great views on the ocean and the mountains. The windows are slightly tinted to make sure your privacy is intact.

The studio layout is in a U shape. As you enter the space, you first go through the dining and cooking area. Than you continue on to the more intimate spaces of the studio: the living area, sofa, bed (1.8m large) were designed especially for the space. The living area also has a wood stove, nice for a romantic evening. The bathroom is very spacious and has a bath, a shower, and two basins. The tiles in the bathroom are handmade Portuguese ladrilhos. The studio is perfect for couples looking for a luxurious retreat, offering comfort and wellbeing. Long chairs are available near the swimming pool.

Ponta Delgada is located on the North Coast at a 20 minute drive from Ribeira Brava, hence the location is quite central. The rough North Coast offers beautiful scenery, cliffs, abundant vegetation and deep valleys. The area has not been deteriorated by tourism related construction. Here you can discover the authentic Madeira as your grandparents knew it...all while being close to the infrastructure on the south.

A small path - a vereda - starting near the house take you down to the ocean. Another path leads you to the village center, 2 grocery stores, a pharmacy, a gas station, bars and a cash withdrawal machine.

For beach lovers, we recommend the black sandy beaches of Seixal (10m by car) or the stony beaches of Sao Vicente (5m by car) with it's popular surfspots. For beginning surfers, we recommend the black sandy beach of Porto da Cruz with its surfschool. The airport is located at a 55m drive, while the centre of Funchal is at 45minutes.

We would be delighted to welcome you on beautiful Madeira.

My husband and I travel to Madeira every year but this was our first stay on the North Coast. Ponta Delgada is situated quite centrally on the island which makes it a perfect home base for discovery, nothing is really far away. Casa do Miradouro is simply wonderful. The views are extremely nice (vineyards, mountains, village and ocean). Our apartment was very clean. Beds are made up upon arrival and towels are provided. The grounds and amenities were very well maintained and the setting is peaceful. We particularly enjoyed the infrared sauna after our long walks. We would highly recommend apartment Pitanga to both adventure-seekers and romance-seekers. We will be back next year. Thank you.

Maison de filme et de rêve! +Océan & Montagne ! <3

  • 5 of 5

Une semaine de repos et de beauté et tranquillité unique. Un petit paradis sur Terre/Mer, sans doute! On veut absolument y retourner! La piscine qui semble être directement connecté à l’océan, le jacuzzi extérieur à côté, le coucher de soleil, enfin, que du bonheur !

Bonne et très précise description da la location et de sa situation

La location était propre et bien entretenue.

Le propriétaire nous a donné de super bons conseils et suggestions, sur des choses à faire, à visiter, à manger, etc.

Recommanderiez-vous cette location à un ami ? Mais sans aucun doute on le recommande à tous nos amis et on veut même y retourner !!

Quels sont les restaurants, activités et attractions que vous avez appréciés ?

La restauration est une des plusieurs richesses de Madeira ! On a mangé bien partout (ah les « espetadas » de carne (énormes brochettes de viande grillée), ah les poissons grillés, ah la « poncha » !) , même dans des endroits un peu « perdus dans la nature » ! Fabuleuse visite aux grutes volcaniques de Sao Vincente ! Merveilleuses promenades dans les « levadas » (parcours tout au long des anciens petits canaux pour amener l’eau aux champs agricoles et populations), les piscines naturelles volcaniques, etc. etc.

Heaven on Earth

  • 5 of 5

This is the ideal place to relax, stop for a while the crazy speeding of life and enjoy the house and the view. The house is fully equipped inside and outside with a beautiful swimming pool and a Jacuzzi. It is a modern, sophisticated house with an excellent design and yet you feel cosy and at home! The hosts provide you with a detailed range of activities and restaurant propositions to help you to profit the most of your stay. If you like to walk, you will find at the house a small guide of walking trails that you can chose according to your energy and willingness to explore the green fields.
