I have spent five days in Villa Sao Paulo and the house is fantastic. Wonderful views over the sea, full of details that makes you feel as if you were at your own home. Is the best vacational house I've ever been. And Madeira Island is really nice, full of green mountains and flowers. Madeira and Villa Sao Paulo, the perfect combination for your holidays.
And Patricia and Fernando are very nice. They are very helpful and friendly. I send you our best regards from Madrid. Hope see you again in Madeira!!!!!
Great villa, amazing owners. Made to feel at home and some lovely touches especially as it was the Christmas period. Thank you so much Patricia and Fernado for making our first family holiday even more special than it already was.
Will be touch when our next visit is planned defiantly.
Take care and kind regards
Sara and the Family.

As the English lottery motto says, “You’ve got to be in it to win it”; Well with this place believe us that you have certainly Hit the Jackpot by booking this Villa .
The casa is situated in a quiet area of Funchal, far away from the hustle and bustle but close enough to get to Down Town. 10 Euros gets you a taxi into Funchal. We didn't try the bus because we where too lazy to walk up the hill to the main road and catch (I think its) #29 bus into town.
The relaxing balcony overlooks the bay of Funchal, and has the most amazing views of the harbour and mountains. Close by is a Market Garden just watch those guys tending there crops ready for delivery to market. It must be back breaking work.
Now Ladies You will not be disappointed with the facilities this house has to offer. Well to be quite honest it has every thing at hand for your needs. It also has WI-FI which is a great asset when touring other countries. I told Patricia the only thing missing was plastic cups for use around the inviting pool which is not too big or deep and is just the right place to take a dip during those warm days when you are taking a lazy day off from sightseeing this wonderful Island of Madeira.
Now for the Hosts; Well what can I say???
Patricia and Fernando are the most wonderful and helpful hosts one could wish to meet.
In the evenings depending the time of year, sit and view from the balcony with a Poncha... if you don't know how to make this ask Fernando to tell you what to buy and I know he would be more than happy to show you how to make this very strong drink, which I'm told I will always have hair while I'm taking a drink!!!!
They will give you all their recommendations if you ask them; Example=== Ask for Dish of the Day when choosing at the restaurants, it costs less than the standard menu.
Yes folks this place is so great we are DEFINITELY most definitely going to book this place again. In fact we are starting to call it “Our second home”
WE had this place for one week, then moved on to the (24th - 30th ) in Santo da Serra which is a nice little homely cottage in the mountains, suitable for two but a great place and location to get about in the car to other places.
Thank You, Patricia and Fernando (not forgetting Joao) for letting us have you places and looking after us during our stay in Madeira.

5 reasons to choose to Sao Paulo villa !
- well suited and well equipped villa, for 4-6 persons, convenient house design;
- for a 1st stay, proximity of various main centres: funchal, gardens (exotic), montains (Pico Ruivo), walks allowing to use the pool at return;
- proximity of shops (3km) and restaurants (top = Borda d'Agua, at Ribeira Brava)
- easy destinations from north to west - car is necessary, and with sufficient power in some mountains with 4 pers. Otherwise, multiple possibilities for bus and ships tours from Funchal;
- walking in the Levadas; top = 25 Fontes (primary forest), Pico Ruivo and Sao Lourenco
- the kindness of Patricia & Fernando at your arrival/departure including specialities of the island. Thanks,
And the same recommendations to come back for next stays in same paradises !

The villa was clean, spacious and extremely well-equiped. Patricia and Fernando were there to meet us on arrival (following a hassle-free transfer from the airport) and they were so welcoming and friendly it made a lovely start to our holiday. Being a family of four with two teenage daughters we valued the spaciousness of the house and the two bathrooms!! We used the pool every day and particularly enjoyed the view, the hammock and the BBQ. The description of the villa is accurate (though the picutres really don't do it justice) and Patricia and Fernando were such friendly hosts, available if needed but not intrusive.
There were a couple of restaurants within walking distance, but it has to be said a reasonable level of fitness (and strong knees) are required as the hills are steep!! The farm next door had a great shop for fresh fruit and veg and the supermarket was within easy driving distance. Car definitely needed (though other guests seemed to have got to grips with the buses!).
We would have no hesitation in recommending Villa Sao Paulo for your holiday in Madeira.
This is a great villa, the best equipped we have ever stayed in. The owners are incredibly welcoming and friendly. Thoroughly enjoyed our time there, the games room was a real hit with the teenagers.
Recommend a car to get about, although nothing is a long drive away
