About Martim Noronha
Casa do Retiro was created as a Family business. Our passion is to receive travellers all around the world in our villas and welcome them and make them feel they're home! We work hard together to assure our guests have the most luxurius stays in the most idilic places - Madeira Island and Porto Santo Island.
Why Martim Noronha chose Ponta Do Sol
We bought this land because our family grew there. The monument in front of our villa was built by our grand mother in order to honor all women who have breast cancer because herself survived after being diagnosed with breast cancer in a young age.

The Best Rental in Madeira
You will not find a better rental. The villa is suberb. Comfortable and spacious. The pool and hot tub are a must experience. The gardens are beautiful and well shaded for relaxing. The location is perfect for a base for exploring the island. The hosts, Tito, Christina and Martin are friendly, and responsive to our every need. Love them. Thoroughly enjoyable stay.
It was a pleasure to host your group for the second time. We loved meeting everyone and we´re delighted that you have enjoyed our villa and the island. You will always be welcome at Vila Retiro. Kind regards and lots of love, Tito, Cristina and Martim Noronha
Very impressive, spacious and well appointed
Villa had all the facilities stated. Plenty of parking. Jacuzzi was wonderful. Owners were very welcoming and helpful with information about trips and events.
It was a pleasure to host you and an honor to share some of Madeira´s delicacies recipes with you.
We are delighted to know that you have enjoyed the island of Madeira as well as our villa.
We hope to see you again very soon.
We booked this house after being let down by another property and we are really glad we did.
The house is fully equiped with everything you need, and although there was only four of us it would make a fabulous holiday for a large family/party.
The hosts Tito and Christina were wonderful and took us round the whole house. The directions given were really good and communication when we booked was really useful.
We were provided with a good selection of goodies to start us off and there is a supermarket round the corner.
Would recommend this property to anyone.
Thank you for your wonderful review. It means so much for us. We are very glad you enjoyed our villa and our island. We would be delighted to welcome you once again!
Ideal for relaxing
The quiet location and standard of facilities at the villa enabled us to chill and relax. Ideally placed to travel to most places on the island.
Thank you very much for writing us a review about the villa. It is very important for us to read our guests opinion.
We hope to see you again soon!
Home from Home
We were in Madeira for Christmas and New Year with our large family including a 15 month old.
The directions given were clear, Beatriz met us upon arrival along with Mrs Garcia (the housekeeper) to go through the house and how everything worked. A nice selection of cake, drinks and snacks were left for us to use.
Casa Do Retiro is a beautiful house set in the hills above Ponta Do Sol, the games room and outside bbq area were constantly in use and meant that the family could all be together having fun. The hot tub was lovely and warm but it was a shame that the pool was too cold to use (maybe we were just not brave enough).
Mrs Garcia was a real trooper and discreet - an absolute star, she kept the house in order for us.
As the house is in quite a remote village, the closely located supermarket, Farmacia and Pizzeria were a godsend and the food was actually very good quality, you can either order a takeaway (have a beer while waiting) or eat in.
Madeira itself is stunning - Café New Era in Calheta is worth a visit along with fishing/whale and dolphin watching boat trip with Franki (located next door). New Years Eve in Funchal is a must if you are visiting at this time of year.
Beatriz, Tito and Christina.... Casa Do Retiro is home from home and we thoroughly enjoyed every moment. You are a lovely family and it was a pleasure to meet you all, because of your hard work and commitment, we all thoroughly enjoyed our Christmas holiday. The Christmas tree and gifts were a real surprise and we will treasure our memories in Madeira.
Thank you for your lovely review. It was a pleasure having your Family in our villa Casa do Retiro.
We hope to receive you again!

Very nice house and garden and splendid good serv.
During the week of easter, we had a lovely time in Casa Do Retiro. We were six adults and four kids and felt there were lot of space in the beautiful house and garden. Everything were perfect and there was everything we needed. The pool was nice and clean and the same with the jacusi. We got an amazing welkome of the owners and speciel thanks to the very nice house keeper who made the stay very easy and comfortable . If we get the possibility once again, we would like to come back. We give our best recommendations to the owners and the house.

Casa do Retiro is located in the South Coast of Madeira Island, in sunny and peaceful village of Canhas, in Ponta do Sol. It is equidistant from everywhere because it is in the middle of South Coast (wich has the best weather of the island) so it is nearby everything! It is located 5 minutes from center of Ponta do Sol with easy access to beaches and restaurants in the area. It's located 12 km from Paúl da Serra, a perfect local for hiking in Calheta's and Ponta do Sol's water courses called 'levadas'. Casa do Retiro is also only 15 minutes from Funchal City and about 40 minutes from Madeira International Airport.
The village of Ponta do Sol has it's own beach. The neighbor village of Calheta has a golden sandy beach.
The villa is very well located and 150 meters from a supermarket, pharmacy, ATM, bank, church, health center, clinical dentist, restaurants and coffees.
On Sundays there is a very intersting local agricultural market with local fresh products from 10 am until 14 pm.
Other Activities: Calheta and Ponta do Sol Levadas (watercourses), Agricultural Market place
Golf: Two championship courses, Palheiro and Santo da Serra, are within 20 minutes drive and offer challenging golfing amongst spectacular scenery.
