A perfect hidden paradise, Cris’s Home is a very welcoming holiday villa in Madeira, great for families and couples alike. The large covered veranda, mature garden and solarium and surrounding deck are perfect for spending the day or evening and complement the spacious living room and bar and separate open plan kitchen and dining. Refurbished and extended from an old farmers cottage, it still retains many of the character features. The whole front is occupied by a large covered veranda with built-in Madeira barbecue and rustic outdoor dining table and sitting area perfect for lounging with a book or a drink in the balmy evenings.
The main door opens to the spacious dining room, great for meals or table games, and fully equipped modern kitchen. This leads to the main family bathroom and also to the large sitting room and bar with flat-screen TV, a separate area with table games and a complete bar, fully stocked with spirits and draft beer which may be used by guests free of charge. Upstairs are the three bedrooms, the first with double bed, the second with a single bed and the third with two queen sized beds, all of which share the upstairs toilet.
Outside there is an expansive mature garden with lawn, shrubs and trees and a badminton/volleyball net. The good-sized rectangular swimming pool (optionally heated) is set in the garden surrounded by a solariumwith sun-beds and a further table and chairs under a fixed straw shade. The owner, Cris, places great emphasis on his guests’ satisfaction. His home is equipped with everything guests may wish for in a holiday villa, with a variety of small touches, such as personalised linen. The bar is stocked with a variety of spirits and a draft beer machine, free of use for guests. Cris owns and operates three of the highest classified restaurants in Funchal, and so understands the importance of customer satisfaction.
