Holiday Rental House
Pretty as a picture, in a country cottage style with Madeiran personality and mature flowering gardens, Casa Belflores is located next to the end of the famous toboggan run, and benefits from superb panoramic views over the sea and Funchal town. It offers charming accommodation with such character features as exposed stone walls of viillas in Madeira, and beamed ceilings, a tasteful up to the minute interior with flashes of colour, spacious open-plan living areas and all 'rooms with a view', not forgetting the lovely swimming pool set slightly above to benefit from those great views!

It offers charming accommodation with such character features as exposed stone walls of viillas in Madeira, and beamed ceilings, a tasteful up to the minute interior with flashes of colour, spacious open-plan living areas and all 'rooms with a view', not forgetting the lovely swimming pool set slightly above to benefit from those great views! Owner Joy, a Madeira resident for over 30 years, offers this villa and neighboring Quinta d'Alegria (each with total privacy) to those wanting quiet surroundings, stunning views over the bay of Funchal and perfect location, where the famous Monte toboggan run ends. You can book both together if you need 6 bedrooms! The well-equipped kitchen gives on to a separate dining room with views to the garden and out to sea. Built in 1880, Casa Belflores has been carefully updated and in addition to the thick stone walls, it offers double glazed traditional style windows and doors which makes the house cosy in the cooler winter months and pleasantly cool in the height of the summer. Outside you have a choice of two separate garden areas, one at ground level filled with numerous unusual plants and shrubs which provide colour and interest throughout the different seasons, and the other at the upper level of the house where you'll find the exuberant green foliage of a number of 'silver' banana trees, and other tropical species. A very spacious pool terrace with its own private heated pool (optional) is also at this level; the walled garden is a real suntrap as it benefits from the sunshine all day long. Both areas of the garden have terraces for sitting in to relax and unwind or to dine alfresco. Casa Belflores is perfectly suited to a couple wishing for a spacious holiday home just for two, but equally suitable for up to five guests. The three bedrooms are composed of a double, a twin and a small single all on the upper level and complemented by two shower rooms. The city of Funchal is a 1.5 km downhill walk, or a short bus ride provided by the half hourly bus service throughout the day an evening. A busy bakery and café and a small supermarket are both a short walk from the house. Cheerful maid service (and babysitting) is provided by Cisaltina. Owner Joy, a Madeira resident for over 30 years, offers this villa and neighbouring Quinta d'Alegria (each with total privacy) to those wanting quiet surroundings, stunning views over the bay of Funchal. You can book them together if you need 6 bedrooms - both are longstanding favourites!

The villa has excellent location close to the center and yet peaceful. The garden and the pool area are wonderful. We enjoyed the levadas and walks in the old town.
