Casa Montana is a large, well appointed, comfortable family home located in one of the most elite areas of Funchal, conveniently close to the restaurants, bars, supermarkets and the sea. With superb views of the ocean and Funchal, the house is located at the end of a small, quiet cul-de-sac, within its own walls and offering complete privacy.
The sweeping entrance is lined with shrubs and plants and a fish pond takes pride of place. There is a covered car port which leads conveniently to the kitchen and makes the house accessible for wheelchair users and people with limited mobility.
Stairs lead up to the main entrance and into the hallway with its picturesque internal open patio. This luxurious sunny house is beautifully decorated, tastefully furnished and superbly equipped offering tremendous comfort to its guests. The lounge is spacious with plenty of relaxing sofas and chairs, a large flat screen TV with cable channels and a cd/dvd player. Patio doors lead to the south-facing sloping garden and terrace equipped with comfortable chairs, dining table and chairs and BBQ and wonderful views over Funchal to the ocean - perfect for indoor/outdoor living.
There are 3 bedrooms. The Master bedroom with a large double bed, small balcony and en-suite shower room and two twin bedrooms sharing the family shower room.
All bedrooms have a sea view.
The kitchen is spacious, very well equipped, has a breakfast table and opens onto the internal patio. It also has direct access to the laundry and elegant dining room with its stylish glass dining table and smart chairs.
On the level below is the the games room with pool table, exercise bike and treadmill. There is also a small sitting area.
The communal areas are air-conditioned and free standing heaters are also provided for use in the cooler months.
The owner decided against a private swimming pool, preferring to swim in the sea, which with average temperatures of 25º in the summer and 19º in the winter months, is possible all year round and the nearest sea access is only a 25 minute walk away.
Casa Montana is particularly well positioned for the NEW YEAR FIREWORK display.
The owner is an artist and has her own painting studio on the top floor. Guests interested in painting may use this, at a supplement of 100€, payable locally in cash on arrival.
This property is registered and has an Alojamento Local lodging license nº25602/AL
A fantastic villa with high quality fittings and imaginative interior design. Spotlessly clean throughout. Very good view from the patio. Would benefit from more air conditioning units or fans in the bedrooms - there is one air conditioning unit in a hallway serving three bedrooms. Despite this, Casa Montana is a truly wonderful villa and can be highly recommended.
Casa Montana fits the description accurately. A very stylish, spacious and clean property with beautiful sea views from the living room and bedrooms. We received good customer service from the manager and owner. Our only disappointment was that the air conditioning unit in the living room wasn't working and we really could have done with it as there was a heat wave! The only other air conditioning unit in the hallway was inadequate for a large open plan house.The location of the villa is within walking distance of the sea front down quite a steep hill, where there is the nearest large supermarket at the lido. It is a longer walk into Funchal centre where there is a shopping centre and the old town with lots of restaurants. The Beerhouse restaurant by the marina is good value and service. Wherever you go, you need a taxi back which were good value and plentiful. We enjoyed a day out with our own taxi driver/guide who took us to Camara De Lobos, Cabo Girao, Sao Vicente (lava caves) and Santana (small thatched roof houses). The nearby "dragon tree" restaurant is lovely and would recommend.
The villa was exactly as described, spacious, beautiful furnished and well equipped. The pictures don't really do it justice. The location offers fabulous sea views, but if walking to restaurants and into Funchal then the return journey is very much up hill so making use of the taxi services is advised. We had a wonderful time here and thanks to Linda for the useful tips. Regards Ian and Alison Brandon
Modern and clean house, with nice view and patio. The renting was very professionally handled. Rental car is not necessary; centrum is on walking distance , bus stops 200m.-taxi is cheap and and pre ordered airport transfer works very well.
From golf to mountain biking to paragliding and big game fishing, Madeira has something for everyone.
No matter where you go on the island you are rewarded by fabulous scenery, tiny villages and friendly people.
With a population of over 100,000, Funchal is not only the capital, but also the ‘heart’ of Madeira and home to many of the islanders. This makes it a busy, chic, cosmopolitan and fun city, full of shops, shopping centres, bars, cafés and a great variety of restaurants and entertainment; a vibrant, metropolitan town where historic splendour and breathtaking natural beauty combine with a thoroughly modern atmosphere. It also boasts a colourful covered market, numerous stately old buildings, including an imposing cathedral and a lovely theatre. The city has grown over the years, ascending higher and higher up the mountainsides, resulting in a beautiful display of sparkling white buildings by day and a myriad of glittering lights at night.
