Overview

About the property

4 bedroom villa, sleeps 8, private heated swimming pool, stunning sea view

The villa has stunning views of the sea and mountains. The villa was built in 2008 to a luxury specification and the architect has done a wonderful job taking advantage of the views by designing a 4 bedroom villa which fits perfectly in the land entitled ' Sitio dos falcoes' (site of the falcons) and creating all 'rooms with a view'. The villa has 3 double rooms & 1 twin with comfortable beds and pillows, duvets, blankets, built in wardrobes and wonderful views of the sea. The villa has 4 bathrooms, two are en-suite, one family bathroom and an additional w/c room. The villa has a sociable open plan kitchen, dining and sitting room area. The kitchen is well equipped with dishwasher, fridge/freezer (inc. ice-maker), hob and electric fan oven. On the veranda is a large eight seater table and a large BBQ. The Cinema / Games Room provides either a haven to escape from the sun, entertainment on rainy days or a venue for after dinner 'contests'. The villa has internet access / WiFi.

About Virginia Martin

The photos of our family is taken on our favourite day out in Madeira - Whale and Dolphin watching - On this particular day we saw a pod of 6 sperm whales and even managed to film them underwater with a go-pro. We recommend to all our visitors that if you have time to go whale watching as it is an amazing experience to see these animals in the wild.

Virginia Martin purchased this villa in 2008

Why Virginia Martin chose Faja Da Ovelha

We purchased the land because of the view. We then designed a house that took advantage of this view.

What makes this villa unique

The warmest pool on the island (probably) - we don't like swimming in cold pools and so try to keep our pool around 27-29 degrees all year round.

Quinta Falcoes October 2009

  • 5 of 5

Quinta Falcoes exceeded all our expectations, well planned accommodation of a very high standard, complimented by fantastics sea views and stunning sunsets.

The heated pool was very very warm, allowing it to be enjoyed well into the evening during October.

With the luxury accommodation and fantastic surroundings we only eat out once making full use of the barbecue, providing a truly relaxing holiday.

Rosa and Gilberto gave us a warm welcome and lots if local information in addition to the well prepared “ Things To Do” folders.

Rooms were clean, light and well dressed with quality soft furnishings on a par with any boutique hotel.

You can either meander from village to village on the back roads or make use of the new network, the nearest large supermarket is in Calheta 15 minutes away, also in Calheta is Centros das Artes (museum of contemporary arts) well worth visit for it’s exhibitions, views and design.

I can only agree with the other reviewers, this is a villa that ticks all the boxes.

We've already book for 2010.

Owner's Response: Thank you so much for your kind words about our home in Madeira - we love holidaying there and are really glad that you enjoyed your stay as well. Thank you also for your compliment about my choice of 'soft furnishings' as I personally chose everything in the house! We are continuing to explore the island and are adding to the 'things to do' folder as we discover more - our most recent walk started in Encumeada by a lavada taking us through the mountain (in a tunnel) to the rain forest on the north side of the mountain.

Lovely location,Beautiful property, fantastic pool

  • 5 of 5

We took two adults with disabilities with us and we found that the people of Madeira were very welcoming. We would all highly recommend that everyone goes on the safari that covers parts of the island very interesting and guide fantastic. We did a lot during our week stay, cable car, caves, buggies, safari, boat trip. All very good. Two things that would of made our holiday easier was directions to Vila need updating and a small welcoming pack would be of use as arrived when shops had closed. Other than that fantastic holiday had by all and hope to return again soon thank you so much xx

I want to keep a secret

  • 5 of 5

I do not want to tell you how absolutely fabulous is Quinta Falcoes.

I want to keep this home a secret but I think the owners would not be too happy if I did not share my thoughts.

The floor to ceiling windows, I should hate to clean them, letting in perfect views; everything thought of to make your stay complete;

a spotlessly clean home; super comfy beds; soft towels; pristine linen; great pool.

A night time secret of clear dark skies, meteor showers, stars glistening.

The home that Virginia and Jon have created is quite lovely, so please do not take all the available dates as we must go back.

A massive thank you for letting us share such a super home
