Funchal, Madeira, Madeira Islands
Villa Firdaus is centrally situated on the hillside above Funchal, close to amenities, making it ideal for exploring the island be it shopping, swimming in the sea, walking in the mountains or just relaxing at the villa.

Relax in this tastefully decorated and well-appointed, comfortable home. The house has 3 spacious double bedrooms, main ensuite, with a full second bathroom. All of the bedrooms lead onto a wooden sundeck, overlooking a lush garden, perfect for that early morning cup of coffee, brunch or evening sundowner. The well-equipped, modern, open-plan kitchen leads onto a dining room and comfy lounge to a small covered veranda looking towards the sea.
