About Patricia Lencastre

Hello, I´m Patricia, wife to André and mother to Manuel and Joaquim. We live by the sea and enjoy cooking and gathering family and friends around the table at our house. We try to cultivate our vegetables in our garden and we believe a good wine us always a good idea at our table.

Our sons love to run and ply in the garden and are always asking us to travel as we are use to traveling. We travel a lot but we always love coming back home.

Patricia Lencastre purchased this house in 1919

Why Patricia Lencastre chose Funchal

Isabel´s Villa was an old support house in the centenary property bought by my grandfather which includes other houses. When he bought it, the land near the sea was to cultivate vineyards and, with time, adapted to the family needs.

The location and direct access to the sea (not open to guests at this time) lead him to believe it was the best property in Funchal.

What makes this house unique

The property is located ocean front with a stunning over the sea and Funchal Port.

Isabel´s Villa was thought and decorated to give our guests the best holidays memories. The traditional handmade portuguese cement tile that can be found in the kitchen and the simple yet cozy decoration were thought to give a relaxing environment to the Villa.

30 metres above the coastline

  • 5 of 5

The location is absolutely fantastic, on a cliff high above the coast, with seagulls, doves and falcons flying - and living - below, and a 180 degree vision of the ocean. And yet there is easy access to the old town and the city centre - 10 minutes easy walk down and a quarter of an hour's walk back.

The house is well suited to two persons and is well taken care of by helpful Mara - and a welcome committee of two friendly dogs (who are not, unfortunately, allowed to enter the garden). In your private garden you can find bananas and figs and various vegetables.

It is hard to imagine anything to make it better.

A little Oasis

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful welcome when we arrived to our accommodation which was perfect for us with the most amazing views. We couldn’t fault anything.

The traditions and passion that this Island holds is overwhelming.

We’ve booked this accommodation again later this year so we can see more of Maderia.

Outstanding property, fabulous hosts. We will be back!

  • 5 of 5

We have just returned home from a week of paradise at Isabel's Villa. The property is immaculate with views that take your breath away. There is everything you need and more in the villa for a perfect stay. The owners of the property are helpful and so thoughtful and accommodating. We already are planning our return visit to Madeira and will without doubt stay again at Isabel's Villa.
