Aquarela has a fabulous position in a peaceful residential development, yet within a ten minute walk of a supermarket and a handful of bars and restaurants. Superb, uninterrupted sea views can be enjoyed from the pool terrace, and the spacious interior has been thoughtfully decorated with modern furnishings throughout. Each of the three bedrooms benefit from air conditioning, and on the lower floor there is a wonderful games room to keep the whole family entertained! WIFI is included free of charge for those who wish to keep in touch, and Aquarela is conveniently located just outside the capital of Funchal, which is well worth a visit.
Holidays are a big deal. So going that extra mile to make it special can make all the difference.
Our Signature villas add those all-important special touches.
The pool towels are included. The barbecue is big enough to prepare a tasty feast for the whole family. The master bedroom boasts a king size bed for added comfort.

Kick start the day with fresh coffee using your own machine. You'll even find the fun factor with a games facility!

No need to make any comments, other than to say it was FANTASTIC and my daughter and I would like to go back as soon as possible. It truly was the best Villa we have stayed in. Thank you so much. Margaret and Dawn Barber

This villa is stunning and by far the best James villa we have stayed in. The location is very quiet and just what we were looking for and the views are simply breathtaking!
Very spacious villa with lots of room to spread out and find peace. Games room excellent and kitchen well equipped. Pool comfortable with heating but really should be cleaned between guests not on a fixed day 4 days after our arrival- I have marked down because of this. We had very poor weather during our stay and the villa compensated for this by allowing everyone to stay amused at home.

Villa Aquarela is beautiful with stunning views and we were not disappointed. Spotlessly clean and well equipped. Even better than expected from photos etc. Some of the best sunsets from the terrace we've seen. We were a party of 6 adults and had plenty of room and everything we needed. The games room, BBQ and pool were well used. Local buses and 6 seater taxis were reasonable and always available within a 10 minute walk, as were local shops, bakeries and restaurants. Would definitely return .

Wonderful views, well equipped, loads of room to spread out. Small pool. Quite a lot of noise from neighbours and adjacent road.

The villa was truly amazing, well prepared and stocked with everything you need in a fabulous location. Furniture was clean and in good condition, games room was well used. We had 5 adults and one child and it was more than big enough for all of us. The outside area was good plenty of seating on all levels. The pool was clean and warm. Overall the villa the location and the views were stunning and would definitely go back.

Aquarela has the wow factor! It's huge yet feels homely and the furnishings etc are top notch. The games room is a great space. A minor negative for some would be the number of steps to get down to the pool area, and the pool itself is quite small with a very limited shallow area. There are several restaurants a short walk away and a regular bus service to take you into Funchal if you don't have, or don't fancy, taking the car.

One little problem with the pool not being heated when we had paid for it.

We are glad that you enjoy your stay at Aquarela. We have discussed the issue with pool heating with you directly, and as advised unfortunately whilst the pool heating was put on for your arrival, their was an unexpected malfunction with the pool pump, that was discovered when you reported the heating hadn’t been working on your departure.
