Guestbook comments from the owner

Having spent a lovely week in Villa Dragoeiro in January, we returned for a fortnight this November. The villa is absolutely first rate - spacious, light and airy, with well furnished rooms, very pleasant balconies and sitting out areas. and in a super position, near to the Botanic and Palheiro Gardens, and within easy reach of the old town and marina. We absolutely could not fault either the accommodation or Jose and his son, Joao, who are so friendly, and for whom nothing is too much trouble. I am already planning my next visit - in April or May when I intend going to the rose garden on the north side of the island and revisiting other favourite places.

Absolutely well maintained and proper

  • 5 of 5

Villa Dragoeiro is a very nice place to spend holidays at Funchal. This spacious and very well maintained house is located in a quiet cul-de-sac street and offers a great view on Funchal downtown and the harbour. There is also a nice little garden and a patio which is the perfect breakfast place. The owner, Jose Anibal Chaves, is a perfect host – very kind and caring to it’s guests. Upon our arrival at Funchal Airport Jose’s son picked us with the Ford Focus we rented from him during our two weeks stay. We can really recommend Villa Dragoeiro, which is a perfect place for families and/ or groups of friends.

Traumhaus mit super Vermieter!

  • 5 of 5

Im August 2014 verbrachten wir (zwei Erwachsene und ein 15-jähriges Sohn) eine traumhaft schöne Woche (viel zu kurz!) in dieser tip top gepflegten Villa. Es war einfach alles perfekt! Das Haus mit all seinem Komfort entspricht zu 100% der Beschreibung im Internet. Es liegt in einer kleinen Sackgasse in einer ruhigen Wohngegend oberhalb von Funchals Altstadt, die man - immer steil bergab – in ca. 20 min zu Fuß erreicht. Wir waren angenehm überrascht, dass man von der nahegelegenen Autobahn tatsächlich nichts hört. Gleichzeitig ist es für Ausflüge natürlich sehr zeitsparend, sofort auf die – gut ausgebaute – Autobahn auffahren zu können.

Unser ganz besonderer Dank gilt dem stets freundlichen und hilfsbereiten Vermieter Jose Chaves und seiner Familie: Angefangen vom pünktlichen Transfer von und zum Flughafenüber die Bereitstellung eines kostengünstigen Mietwagens, der sehr gut für die teilweise engen und steilen Straßen geeignet war, bis hin zur gut vorbereiteten Info-Mappe mit Straßenplänen, Buslinien etc. Im Bücherregal fanden sich weitere Prospekte, Wander- und Reiseführer, manche auch auf Deutsch.

Zur Begrüßung standen Kaffee, Kuchen, Kekse und Brötchen auf dem Tisch sowie ein prall gefüllter Obstkorb, der beinahe für die ganze Woche gereicht hat. Im Kühlschrank gab es Käse, Wurst, Margarine, Milch und Wasser. Wir waren also für den Anfang gleich bestens versorgt.

Herr Chaves hatte für alle unsere Fragen ein offenes Ohr und gute Tipps bereit. Er war uns auch behilflich bei der Kontaktaufnahme zu einer Organisation, bei der wir eine Bootsfahrt zur Wal- und Delfin-Beobachtung mitmachen wollten (hat sich absolut gelohnt!).

Alles in allem haben wir den Aufenthalt in der Villa Dragoeiro sehr genossen und können das Haus uneingeschränkt weiter empfehlen!

Fantastic Holiday in Madeira

  • 5 of 5

Myself and 3 friends all aged 60+ stayed at this lovely villa for a week in January. The owner, Jose, met us at the airport and informed us of the buses, taxis & local facilities etc. There was a welcome pack in the kitchen so we could have fed ourselves on arrival although we were taken into Funchal & sampled the local cuisine. The villa was spotless & very well equipped. Jose was always available & willing to give advice if we needed it. While on excursions we we met up with people who were staying in hotels & we felt we had the much better deal. I can say quite frankly that it is one of the nicest places I have stayed & have no hesitation in recommending it or Madeira

Book your trips early in the week as they don't go every day & you may miss out on the ones you want to do.If you like walking make sure you do the levada 25 springs and dont forget the Palheiro Gardens - easy to get to on a bus - full of beautiful flowers with a lovely coffee shop selling great cakes!

Villa Dragoeiro - Funchal

  • 5 of 5

Jose is an incredibly attentive and helpful host and he went to far greater lengths than he need have done to make our stay here enjoyable and comfortable. There were four adults in our party and we are all agreed on this. Other reviewers of Villa Dragoeiro have mentioned the rather noisy dogs in neighbouring houses and, in order for this to be an honest review, we have to agree - they do bark a lot! The villa itself is exactly as described and is probably better in real life than in the pictures - the facilities provided are excellent and there really are free telephone and Skype calls to most Countries. During our two week stay in February we had wall to wall sunshine every day except one so we did not need to use the large flat screen Sony television with it's range of a hundred or so video films but, had there been some wet days, this facility was available. There really is a little gym on the top floor with good equipment.

All the members of our party would have preferred duvets on the beds rather than the sheets and blankets provided but we accept that this is very much a personal thing and, come the summer months, most guests would probably hardly notice. The February evenings and nights got a little cold but there was an adequate supply of electric heaters around the house so it was not difficult to keep warm. We ate in most nights and the kitchen facilities were better than adequate.

All in all a very good holiday villa - and, in all probability, better than some guests own homes.

The house is located near the Old Town of Funchal (1.5 km downhill). Here are some of the best restaurants on the Island with various local and international cuisine.

In the Old Town also you can visit the Historical Centre of Madeira Museum and other interesting museums in Funchal. Particularly of interest are the wine museums and tasting parlors of major Madeiran wine companies. From the Old Town you also can take the cable car to the beautiful gardens of Jardim Botânico and Monte, though it is a short and lovely walk to the Jardim Botanico. Should you walk to the old city (recommended) you will come first to the famous fish, fruit and flower market of the Mercado dos Lavradores.

Madeira is famous for its lush vegetation, with all varieties of plants and flowers and its sub-tropical gardens. The Laurisilva forests of Madeira have been declared a World Heritage Monument. Here there are also many exciting and gorgeous Levada walks. There are two championship golf courses. Also there is ocean swimming, sailing, game fishing, etc.,in addition to the marina in Funchal with modern basins for yachts and motor boats.

Although the coast is dominated by cliffs, there is access to the ocean. Approximately 15m by car is the protected bay of Machico, with its fine golden sand beach good for swimming with children, and the natural refuge of the Deserta Islands are but a brief commercial boat ride away.

Some Madeira holiday activities:

Madeira Island tours - Pico do Arieiro, at 1818 m high, is Madeira island's third highest peak. The footpath northwards towards Pico Ruivo is an important tourist attraction, with a daily average of 1000 tourists trekking on it.

There is easy road access to the summit, with a large car park and a restaurant and souvenir shop.

Madeira levada walks - The levadas originated out of the necessity of bringing large amounts of water from the west and northwest of the island to the drier southeast, which is more conducive to habitation and agriculture. In the sixteenth century the Portuguese started building levadas to carry water to the agricultural regions.

Many levadas are cut into the sides of mountains, and it was also necessary to dig 25 miles (40 km) of tunnels.

A popular levada to hike is the Levada do Caldeirão Verde which continues as the Levada Caldeirão do Inferno. Together it is about 37 km long.

Madeira Paragliding - Paragliding has become quite famous in Madeira Island with great locations beautiful landscapes exciting views from above and unforgettable memories. There are many great locations scattered all over the Island good take-off and landing areas a truly unique experience.

Aeroclube of Madeira and Madeira Paragliding Hang gliding Association are the two most experienced clubs for flying and who are also responsible for the organization of the competitions and leisure events on the Island.

Canyoning Madeira - Canyoning is an exhilarating sport that takes place in a mountainous watercourse and to overcome the obstacles of nature we have to swim, jump and do rappels in small waterfalls.

This is an activity that guarantees strong emotions and unforgettable moments close to nature, where you will discover what few people know.

Scuba diving - Scuba diving in Madeira has gained more importance among visitors to the island during the last years.

A mild climate all year round, water temperatures of 18 to 23°C, depending on the season, crystal clear waters and the likelihood of viewing species like barracudas, monkfish, dolphins, rays and even mantas are the main reasons why lovers of this sport consider the island of Madeira more and more for their diving holidays.

The Botanical Garden Cable Car, is situated in the Inn Quinta do Bom Sucesso - Madeira Island - seven minutes from the centre of Funchal city.

A dream trip is surely a promise, drawing a line in the natural landscape of the João Gomes Stream Valley, home to an exotic and rare natural beauty. The panoramic view spreads to the delightful city of Funchal and to an overwhelming landscape, where the nature's green melts with the ocean's blue.

The entire project follows the highest standards of quality and safety, in agreement with the European and International rules.

The Botanical garden property (35 000 m²) is surrounded by fantastic views of mountains in the north and the ocean in the south. It was created in 1960 ans is situated about 3 kilometers from the center of Funchal City.

One of its main purposes was the conservation of indigenous Madeiran plants, some of which are very rare and extinct in the wild. The garden reveals to the visitor a mix of harmonious shapes and contrasting colors of 2500 exotic plants.

The garden is divided into five sections exhibiting local as well as foreign plants. One of those parts is devoted to exotic birds. The 'Parrot Park' has a collection of about 300 exotic birds including Dwarf Parrots and Macaws.
