Our location

We are just 40 minutes from the airport via the rápida motorway. Ideally situated midway between Ponta do Sol and Ribeira Brava, Madeira South Coast. Our builder can construct anywhere on the island, but is based in Ponto do Sol and the majority of his completed buildings and available plots are in these surrounding areas. This area also provides excellent access routes by road to all parts of the island as well as amazing temperatures.

Ponta do Sol and Ribeira Brava have numerous shops, bars, restaurants, hotels, ATM’s, banks, chemists, petrol stations, health centre and dentists. Riviera Brava is the largest town after Funchal and boasts a large supermarket and two further smaller supermarkets as well as a small fruit market. Ponta do Sol has a smaller convenience supermarket.

We are very close to the neighbouring village Lugar de Baixo, a small hamlet which has beachside cafes and restaurants. But Funchal is approx. a 20 minute drive via the rápida motorway if you require the buzz of city life.
