Vila Luis Mendes, Ribeira Brava

Bedrooms 3
Property type house


About the property

Located in the village of Ribeira Brava this house has 53 years of existence. Having already been the residence of a former mayor, Luís Mendes, hence the designation of this house "Vila Luís Mendes". This house is characterized by its classic style, a fabulous garden, a true small oasis. The house has two floors, consisting of three bedrooms with double bed, a bathroom, a kitchen and an elegant living and dining room.
In the outdoor space there is a large garden and a barbecue. Ribeira Brava is one of the oldest towns in Madeira, located on the southwest coast of this island. This locality due to its orography had a very important paper in the communications between all the points of the island. The fusion of sea and mountain provides a unique environment with breathtaking views. The fact that this village is flat gives its visitors moments of exploration of its nooks by walking or cycling. In the center of the village it’s possible to visit the historic and emblematic church named as “Igreja Matriz”, as well as the Fort of S.Bento which currently functions as a Tourist Information Center and also the traditional market with regional products. There is also the Ethnographic Museum and Lighthouse of Ribeira Brava where you can glimpse a magnificent view of the sea and the village. The village has multiple services, such as cafes, restaurants, banks, three supermarkets, laundry, health center, pharmacy, police station, shopping center and public transports. Ribeira Brava is located in the centre of island, 15 minutes from the city of Funchal by car in the motorway. But if you want direct contact with nature you can take off to Serra de Água to appreciate the beauty of that valley and you can still walk in the wonderful Levadas that exist there. If you prefer to dive in the crystal clear waters of Ribeira Brava we have the paradisiac Calhau da Lapa and Fajã dos Padres.
