Paul do Mar was very quiet and relaxing and we considered it a good choice much better than Funchal where we went for a day out. The location of the villa was perfect from this perspective. The beds were very comfortable which was pleasant to find in a holiday let.

We also appreciated the standard of the villa furnishings, the space and bathing facilities which are of a similar standard to those we have at home. The location was peaceful and provided really lovely views.”

Lovely house, great location

  • 5 of 5

The house is well equipped, beautifully maintained and in a great location. Paul do mar is a very friendly village with a couple of low-key bars /restaurants less than 5 mins away. The property managers were very helpful and even managed to find us some jump leads when we inadvertently flattened the car battery. Would definitely recommend, though don't expect a sandy beach... the coast here is all boulders, so probably not the place to go if you want to build sand castles 😀

Also, your review confirms that Paul do Mar, a 300 year old fishing and agricultural village is “a very friendly village with a couple of low-key bars /restaurants less than 5 mins away.” Also, we are very happy that you valued our CLIENT CARE from the enquiry stage until checkout. You wrote: “The property managers were very helpful and even managed to find us some jump leads when we inadvertently flattened the car battery.” Paul do Mar does have small black natural sand beaches between the stones! If the stones which have been on the sand for thousand of years were removed the Atlantic Ocean would enter and destroy the village. Also, bathing and the water is more hygienic above stones in shallow water than sand which has more bacteria in it. There are 3 of the best sand beaches on the island 10 minutes drive away in the marina zone of the capital town which have been specially built for everyone both locals and travellers. We hope that you return to Madeira again soon and consider staying at COUNTRY DREAM BEACH VILLA again or another property that we manage.

A spacious, well-equipped villa in a quiet, sunny location.

  • 5 of 5

The villa is situated in banana groves about 150m from the road and the shore. Access is via a path which incorporates a lot of steps so not ideal with heavy luggage. Car parking is on the road which is a cul-de-sac so there is very little traffic.

The villa is very spacious with large rooms, all of which face south-west towards the sea. The lower floor is open plan with a sitting room and a well-equipped kitchen and dining area. There is also a small toilet. The two bedrooms upstairs have en-suite bathrooms and balconies. Due to the south-west orientation, the afternoon sun shines directly on the balconies and the terrace so they are ideal for sitting and eating or doing a spot of sunbathing.

Paul, the manager, is very helpful and gave us a lot of advice on local facilities and excursions.

A car is probably essential because the village shop appears to be closed and the nearest supermarket is about 10 minutes away in Calheta. There are, however, a number of restaurants and cafes in the village.

Lovely Holiday

  • 5 of 5

We loved the cozy village Paul do Mar; it was calm and we almost felt like we were the only tourists there. The landscape is beautiful and there are a lot of things you can do. We followed Paul and Iva's recommendation and booked a whale watching tour with Lobosonda in Calheta which was amazing, they really cared about the animals and environment. We also went hiking, there are very nice routes starting in Paul do Mar, but we also loved Caldeirao Verde for a full day trip. You will need a rental car (next supermarket is in Calheta, about 15min from Paul do Mar) and I was glad that we upgraded from a VW Polo to a Megane at the airport because of the inclines. Many thanks to Paul and Iva who were lovely and had many good tips and recommendations and always a fast answer for any question, for example when we decided to go surfing - we went to Porto da Cruz (1h drive) 5 times because the recommended surf school was great. Driving to Funchal was also easy, the roads are very good - we were amazed at all the work people put into construction of tunnels etc.

The house has really everything you need! The neighbours were super friendly and even gave us bananas from the farm for free. I personally liked that the house was not directly at the ocean/street because it was more quiet - you still hear the ocean and have a perfect ocean view especially from the 2 balconies. We also enjoyed the garden barbecue!

Excellent

  • 5 of 5

Lovely house in a beautiful location. Nicely welcomed by Paul we had a lovely stay in Paul do Mar. The house is located in a former Banana Tree plantation with a beautiful panorama view over the ocean. Clean house, good beds & bedrooms all oceanfront facing the house was nice and cool. All appliances where there including dishwasher. Paul do Mar is located near the ocean and at the sunny side of Madeira. You need a car but with a car everything is very good reachable and nearby. In the city itself (old fisher town) you have some restaurants all at walking distance. We usually ate at a very good fish restaurant that served fresh fish. All in all a very lovely place with no downsides if you like a beautiful house with a peaceful stay.Lovely house in a beautiful location.
