Villa Prazeres is a beautiful home that boasts a unique bright pink exterior. Located in the civil parish of Prazeres in the west of Madeira, the villa is an impressive home to enjoy your island holiday from.
The outdoor area is an attractive and large space where you’ll definitely be spending most of your time. The garden is enhanced by a range of towering trees and houses a cosy veranda. Guests will easily be able to spend all day out on the veranda which has seating, table football and a charming built-in Madeira barbecue. There’s also a hammock at the front of the veranda fixed onto two pillars – what a tranquil way to appreciate the striking views.
The villa’s outdoor pool is complemented by a sizzling hot tub that sits on the pool deck. Sun loungers are placed beside the pool, where you’ll surely enjoy savouring some Portuguese sunshine.
Villa Prazeres possesses a contemporary yet homely aesthetic. Guests will find everything they need for a fantastic and comfortable stay. The living room sees a comfy brown leather sofa complemented by a rustic stone wall and stone floors. Modern artworks decorated onto the walls and house flowers add to the colourful character of the room.
The bar is the stellar indoor feature of the home and is located in the living room, just behind the sofa. The bar is similar to an exclusive venue that you’ll find in Madeira’s exquisite capital, Funchal. An exciting range of spirits as well as a draft beer machine awaits you for entertaining evenings spent inside.
Prazeres is now becoming more popular with visitors, due to its gorgeous countryside, which rests about 400 metres above sea-level. Whilst in Prazeres, you will discover a small collection of country restaurants & cafés, the Levada Nova trail and easy access to the plateau of Paul da Serra. Access to the rest of the island, Calheta beach and on to Funchal is very easy via the new expressway.
If you wish to stretch your feet a little once you’ve become acquainted with your home, head to XS Café which is only a 10-minute walk away. The café serves fantastic coffee from Brazil and Colombia beans and a selection of cakes and chocolate. What’s better than sipping on a cup of coffee while admiring such great scenery in the background?
Just a short stroll away from the villa sits Saloio Restaurant. The charming venue specialises in delicious home-cooked food & drinks including Portuguese piri piri chicken and Espetada. Though small, the restaurant boasts a vibrant atmosphere full of locals and friendly staff.
Villa Prazeres is situated in an ideal location for nature walks and Madeira is an island made up of stunning and vast greenery. The epic nature and wildlife of the area will definitely be restorative to the soul and leave you with a lovely energy boost.
The area of Levada do Norte is a popular hiking spot in Prazeres. It is one of the largest on the island and starts below the renowned Cabo Girão. The walk is best enjoyed with regular breaks where you can stop and take in all of the natural beauty. The views are simply breathtaking and will make you feel as if you are on top of the world.
