Casa Flor is a nice, south facing 2 bedroom villa with private heated swimming pool, located just above Ponta do Sol in Madeira and only a short distance to the sea front and restaurants. Casa Flor is a beautifully restored old quinta, tucked into the hillside above the south coast village of Ponta do Sol, known as one of the sunniest places on the island.
It’s without doubt the perfect holiday retreat and gives you the beauty and tranquility of the Madeiran countryside, yet only a 25 minute drive to the hustle and bustle of the capital, Funchal.
Entrance is via a large covered hacienda with dining table, chairs for dining al-fresco and comfy wicker chairs. On the ground floor, you have the traditionally furnished lounge with comfortable sofa, armchairs, plasma TV and DVD player. Also, the well-equipped kitchen with adjoining dining area and patio doors that open directly onto the front terrace.
Upstairs are the two bedrooms, one with en-suite bathroom and both with a double bed and French windows opening out to a large balcony. All the rooms are south facing with stunning ocean views. Also upstairs is a second full bathroom and a study with a sofa-bed for an additional guest.
The large south facing terrace overlooks the heated pool and well-kept gardens.
The heated freeform swimming pool occupies the south facing sun terrace with sea-views.
Surrounding the pool terrace and to the side of Casa Flor are large mature gardens with lawns and trees.
