If you are looking for an elegant Vila with all the comfort, then Vila Echium will certainly charm you. Only 10 minutes by car from Funchal, this lovely Vila is located in the village of Garajau and within a short walk you find some restaurants and bars, shops and a mini-market.

Vila Echium

Located on the south coast of Madeira Island, in the posh villa of Garajau, we find the beautiful Vila Echium.

Design by architect Van Belden, this Holiday Home was built about 40 years ago and includes two comfortable self catering apartments.

The top floor apartment has two bed rooms, sleeping 4 persons and the ground floor has one bed room, but with the possibilities for sleeping 3 persons.
The top apartment, with its classical interior decoration, has a terrace with view towards the sea and is surveying the garden. The more modern decorated ground-floor apartment has its own direct way out to the garden from the living-room and from the bedroom.

The garden is furnished for sunbathing. It has a lively pond with fish, frogs, turtles and water plants. There is also equipment for grilling.

The Villa of Garajau is just 5-10 minutes by car from the centre of Funchal. This Villa is inhabited by the upper middle class people of the island, residing in lovely villas with beautiful gardens.

This is a fairly quiet area. However, just two minutes by foot, you find some good restaurants, a take away, a supermarket and a bakery.

Opinion sur villa echium

10/ 10

C'était parfait. Le jardin magnifique, la maison tout confort, spacieuse et décorée avec soin, le ménage impeccable avec le passage de la femme de ménage tous les jours, accueil avec deux corbeilles de fruits, des fleurs... Johnny, le propriétaire nous a contacté dès la réservation et a même organisé notre transit depuis l'aéroport alors que nous arrivions en pleine nuit. Une note de 10/10 , un rapport qualité prix incroyable.

review for vila echium

10/ 10

Dieses Haus war für uns die optimale Unterkunft: viel Privatspähre, super gepflegt, zentral gelegen und trotzdem sehr ruhig ( abgesehen von den Fröschen im Biotop ). Wir haben den Aufenthalt sehr genossen! / This house was for us the perfect property: much privacy, super well maintained, centrally located and yet very quiet (apart from the frogs in the habitat). We have enjoyed it more!

Vi var to familier som leide Villa Echium fra 22.12.12 til 05.01.13. Vi hadde et kjempefint opphold! Vi er fornøyd med hus, hage og med Filomena som gjorde hverdagene enkle for oss! Vi besøkte Funchal i julehøytioden og på nyttårsaften, fyrverkeriet var strålende og byen pyntet til fest hele perioden!Vi nøt lang dager på stranden nedenfor huset, svømte i havet og var på tre levadavandringer blant annet. Anbefales! Vi håper vi snart kan komme tilbake! Heidi

Dear Johnny, Thank you ever so much for your great hospitality and a most magnificent stay at Villa Echium. Your wonderful, spacious villa and beautiful, lush garden was just what we needed for our two-week holiday. The housemaid, Filomena, is extraordinarily service-minded and takes care of everything big and small and even provided us with a fully decorated Christmas tree! The shops in the immediate neighborhood provided us with most daily necessities and the 15 minute bus-ride into Funchal is no problem as soon as one learns that the departure times at the local bus-shelter refer to the terminal, not the bus-shelter. Yes, we would certainly like to return to “Villa Echum”. Karen Marie & Pans Peter

Hi Johhny, I thought i would drop you a note just to say how much we enjoyed our holiday in Madeira. Your Villa was the perfect place to be, beautiful and so clean! Philomena was very nice and worked really hard! Not that we were messy ha ha. Unfortunately we didn't see as much of the island as we would have liked due to my mum not being very mobile and i must say the taxi drivers were scoundrels! They wanted at least 20 eur every time we went to Funchal so we ended taking the bus when we could. We did find a really nice taxi driver on the last day, he normally sits on the main road near the villa. Only wish we had found him earlier. If we come back to Madeira i will certainly be hoping to stay in your villa again. sheila x

Bonjour Monsieur, Juste un petit mot pour vous dire que nous avons passé de très bonnes vacances à Madère, que nous avons trouvée magnifique. La villa Echium est très agréable et bien située. La personne qui venait faire le ménage tous les jours (Filoména) est très efficace, discrète et sympathique. Nous vous remercions de votre gentillesse et nous conseillerons Madeira Rural à nos amis. Bien cordialement, Annick Borrel
