This newly refurbished 5-bedroom sister villa do Casa da Pinheira I, allies peace and tranquillity of the residential area in which it is located with the wonderful views of the town and ocean due to its prominent position above Funchal. A high quality finish and light contemporary furnishings are complemented by a covered terrace, heated pool and garden that all benefit from those stunning views.
On arrival, the first thing you will notice is the fact that those superb views of Funchal and the ocean are always there - from the garden, whilst swimming in the pool, from the front terrace (what lovelier place to have your meals?) and from three of the four bedrooms.
The welcome holiday feeling is also created by the furnishings, which are light and of a very high standard.
The villa is very private, being positioned below the street has a large side and front yard (with good parking space) and is gated.
Access to the town centre is easy via the regular public transport that passes by the villa, or 5 minutes by car (a 20 minute downhill walk will also bring you to town).

The main living area and 4 of the bedrooms is all on one floor with access via steps to the front terrace or via a ramp to the kitchen entrance. It can therefore be recommended for people with mobility difficulties.

The cosmopolitan city of Funchal with its Fruit & Vegetable Market, Fish Market (the best morning to visit is Friday), Marina, Harbour, Theatre and many shops and restaurants is only a kilometre away. Public transport is plentiful and passes just outside the villa.
The Botanical Gardens are a must for garden lovers, especially as they are so close to the villa, approximately 500 metres.

Only a 5 minutes walk are the lovely Orchid Gardens and Quinta das Boa Vista, definitely worth a visit.
