The Madeira Islands region

Between the verdant hills and the blue ocean, Madeira lies 1000 km southwest of Lisbon and 800 km from the coast of Africa, offering the delights of a subtropical climate. The island’s exceptional temperatures (between 16ºC and 30ºC – 61ºF and 86ºF) and legendary natural beauty have made this a chosen destination.

There is a wide range of opportunities to satisfy your leisure requirements. The Atlantic invites you to go sailing, fishing, whale & dolphin spotting, water skiing, surfing, diving and of course swimming. Sea temperatures vary between 18 to 24 ºC depending on the time of year. For sub aquatic enthusiasts, the Garajau coast line offers one of Europe's first underwater nature reserves. On land there are a vast amount of leisure activities available including levada walking, golf and sight seeing.


The old town is the historic centre of Madeira’s capital Funchal. Its the location for this special and luxurious apartment complex. Within 5 minutes stroll, you’ll find many of the landmarks Madeira is famous for like the Fish and Flower market, the Monte cable car station or Fort São Tiago.

One of the old town’s main attraction, besides the charming architecture of the early settlers, is a well known ‘secret’ amongst locals and tourists: There is large variety of excellent restaurants and all of them within easy walking distance of the apartments!

"Ocean View apartment, a truly special travel experience"

After 5 years of marriage, my husband and I finally took our 'honeymoon.' We thought Madeira was the perfect place for a romantic getaway, but on a budget. Villa Sao Tiago suited us to a T. Wonderful accommodation located in Zona Velha- a 2 min walk to Barreirinha beach and a really pleasant 20 min walk to the marina. And, no uphill struggle! I could go on and on about Funchal, but this review is about the villa. Ocean View is a small apartment, but all the space is smartly used- including a coffee table that converts into a dinning table. Not that you would want to use it- we had all our meals on the balcony overlooking the ocean. The only criticism I would have is the kitchen is just a bit too small- a week long grocery shop will not fit in the cabinets, but we made use of the full-sized fridge. But, the Mercado dos Lavradores is only a 10 min walk away, so we just did a daily shop. I cannot emphasize enough how everything you could need is thought of- and if it is not, Maria is more than happy to help. We found this out when we realised our adapter was only good for our UK electronics but not our US ones. When we asked Maria if she had one, she went out to the store and got one for us the next day! We really felt catered for at Ocean View, but in a very non-intrusive way. I loved our stay and the next time we visit Funchal (and we'll be back for sure!) Villa Sao Tiago will be our first choice. Obrigada, Maria! -Regina and Chris, Edinburgh
