A truly stunning contemporary haven, Villa Andrade occupies an unrivalled elevated position overlooking the magnificent harbour at Funchal and the blue waters of the Atlantic. With breathtaking ocean views and the town’s charming centre just a short walk away, this unique residence makes for a very special holiday. Read More

This impressive architect-designed property is certainly a head-turner, with its living spaces located on its top floor, maximising the glorious views across Funchal’s terracotta rooftops to the Atlantic.

The epitome of minimalist design with every detail scrupulously considered, the house has an innate sense of calm. Decorated throughout in stylish muted greys with a splash of a colour in the bedrooms, its polished hardwood flooring bringing a beautiful natural contrast, a look conceived and realised by award-winning designer Nini Andrade. Technology has been creatively applied for effortless living, from the centrally controlled lighting and electrically adjustable blinds to the smooth lift that glides between the four floors.

The top floor is undoubtedly the villa’s most distinguished feature, a jaw-dropping open plan lounge, dining room and kitchen with an entire glass wall on one side leading out to a fabulous balcony with uninterrupted panoramic views. The living room is beautifully furnished with huge designer leather sofas while the indoor and outdoor dining suites are smart and contemporary.

The fully fitted kitchen is sleek and elegant, with floor-to-ceiling slate-grey cabinets and the latest appliances. A beechwood breakfast bar provides a more casual spot for a snack or to chat over a drink as a meal is being prepared, though the balcony will undoubtedly be the favourite dining venue with its incredible bird’s eye view.

A clever revolving door leads outside to the exquisite private pool, a 16 metre long strip that can be heated free of charge in the winter months, fringed with pristine timber decking and exotic palm trees. It’s a wonderfully peaceful place to relax and enjoy a cooling dip at leisure.

Not one but two superb games rooms are positioned on the ground floor and first floor respectively, superbly equipped with a quality modern steel pool table and table football, a Playstation games console and enormous flat screen television providing endless entertainment for all ages.

The uncluttered bedrooms are simple and serene, with fitted wardrobes and sliding patio doors to welcome in the light. Each one has a sophisticated en suite bath or shower room designed with clean, simple lines and appointed to the highest specification. The master bedroom boasts a Philippe Stark freestanding bathtub and walk-in waterfall shower. Four of the bedrooms are located on the second floor while the fifth is down the dazzling hand-built steel and stone stairs on the first floor.

The beauty of Villa Andrade’s location is its proximity to Funchal’s delightful town centre restaurants, bars and boutique shops, all just a short walk down the hill. Madeira’s bustling, cosmopolitan capital is awash with historic Portuguese buildings, pavement cafés, colourful jacaranda trees and vibrant flowers, as well as being a port of call for some of the world’s most exclusive cruise ships.

northwood Group
best James Villa we have stayed in ! we have stayed in atleast 20 others all over europe. The pool could have a better filter system considering the rest of the house is full of up to date gadgets. Over all its strongly recommended, even for disabled or very young children as there is a lift inside the house on every floor..

An amazing villa, excellently situated wing walking distance down the step hill to the town centre. We found the villa to be very clean on arrival and throughout the stay, and we had excellent communication with the housekeeping team. The pool was a little chilly but we learnt to cover the pool overnight to retain the heat, even in august. Our only negatives are is that the second double room is really not on par with the main bedroom and is a lot smaller than anyother of the rooms, also, the wooden decking by the Pool resulted in us all gettin splinters in our feet, and finally on an evening the noise of the dogs barking in the local area was very loud and at times made sitting outside, either front or back not an option, as it was horrendous.
Would highly recommend but with these comments

The villa is amazing way above what you normal get from a holiday rental, even by James Villas standards.
We have used James several times before and this was by far the best we have ever stay in.
The views across Funchal from the balcony were amazing.

The Villa, also known locally as Skylounge, is located in a residential area. There are no facilities such as food shops or restaurants within easy walking distance.

It is part way up a very steep hill. The walk to the centre of 800 metres is not a realistic option given the incline and the lack of a pavement in certain parts.

The only viable options for getting around are a hire car, or one of the local taxis. We can recommend Maderia Taxis who speak English - see visitors information pack in the property.

All local residents seem to have dogs (often more than one) living in the yards of their properties barking at all hours of day and night.

There is a stunning view of the town and the harbour from the balcony on the top floor and the villa has plenty of space.

The design, layout and technological features (no guidance included) has the feel of a modern office rather than someone's house. The amount of glass in the construction does mean you feel like you are living in something of a goldfish bowl yet, with the exception of the top floor, it is very gloomy due to the lack of artificial lighting.

The building has been designed and constructed to a high standard and the fittings are of similar quality. Other items such as the beds, bedding, towels and the kitchen equipment were poor. There is little kitchenware provided. The wifi signal is poor. Whilst the villa does have cable installed there are no useful channels for someone from the UK.

The local representative, Carlota, was very helpful.
