Holiday Rental House
Casa Formosa is a spacious modern villa set above a beach in a beautiful area a few miles to the west of the capital. It has fantastic views as it looks directly out onto the beach at Praia Formosa. Set at 300 metres above sea level, it has a wonderfully warm microclimate, surrounded by neighbouring gardens and a banana plantation. Despite all this, it is a quick bus or car ride into town, so any sight seeing is easy. It is regarded as one of the best areas for a vacation in Madeira. As it is so close to the sea, you can often hear the relaxing sound of the waves. Also the villa is at the end of a cul de sac so there is very little passing traffic. This makes it a secure and restful place to stay. The well designed villa faces almost directly south and is in a sheltered position. ...Casa Formosa is a spacious modern villa set above a beach in a beautiful area a few miles to the west of the capital.

This makes it a secure and restful place to stay. The well designed villa faces almost directly south and is in a sheltered position. Two large sunbathing terraces span the entire width of the house, giving uninterrupted 180 degree views of the sea and surroundings. The terraces are quite private and quiet. You can watch the cruise ships and fishing boats pass by whilst enjoying breakfast or dinner on the terrace. All of the rooms are on one level, with the exception of the second lounge. The large lounge and dining room are open plan, with large sliding French windows. The outside terrace has a seating area to provide outside dining. A colourful raised flower bed leads to the large covered barbecue at the rear of the villa. This calm spot is not overlooked and has a table and chairs for outside dining as well. The three bedrooms are at the rear of the house, looking out onto a further raised bed. Bedrooms two and three are identical in size and have French windows looking out over the garden. The main bedroom, also with French windows, has a private en suite with a walk in wardrobe and Jacuzzi bath. The upper terrace has direct sun all day, with panoramic views. It is very open and spacious and has eight sun loungers - ideal for sunbathing. For summer visitors there is the added bonus of a rooftop plunge pool. It was designed to give an infinity effect over the sea. PLEASE NOTE: the pool is open during the summer and opens on May 1, and closes late October. Please ask for times as opening and closing times are weather and bookings dependent. It may be possible to extend the times dependent on bookings. The minimum stay at the villa is seven days. Apart from July and August, the changeover day is flexible. During July and August we are generally fully booked so we ask that arrivals and departures are at the weekend.

Interaction with guests
Some guests like to be met at the airport and taken to the villa. Others prefer to be met at the house. It is up to the individual guest. However, I have a representative on the island and I am available by e mail to answer any queries.

About the neighbourhood
Many guests just spend a lot of the time at the villa as it is large and comfortable. Many have visited Madeira before, so know of this area. It is a place where you can just chill out and look at the views, or go down to the beach, or go on walks. We have had walkers, cyclists, photographers staying. Plus, the house is very popular with families in the summer. Basically, whatever type of holiday you want, the villa is an ideal base.
Getting around
The villa is very well located. By car it is five minutes from the beach. In another direction, it is five minutes to the most popular restaurant and shopping complex for tourists. The expressway to get quickly to other parts of the island is five minutes away as well. If you do not have a car, it is possible to walk to the beach and the bus at the top of the road takes you into Funchal directly - which is a scenic route passing the popular Forum area, the Lido, Reid's hotel and into town.
