With a location dubbed 'the sunniest place in Madeira', it's little wonder this home is committed to letting so much of the outside in. Floor-to-ceiling glass windows and sliding doors flood the modern villa with light and, more importantly, give you front-row seats to breathtaking views over the ocean and hillside.
The interiors are sharp and clean, with white-washed walls, cream colours and the occasional pop of teal. The large living space has enough room for your whole group, from dining at the glass table to chilling out on one of the luxury beanbags.
Even the games room feels futuristic thanks to a white, curved pool table and matching foosball table. No matter how much you love the modernity of this spot, most of your time will invariably be spent soaking up the vista, whether from the infinity pool or one of the loungers. While restaurants and bars are a drive away, the back garden has its own bar and barbecue area for you to practise your grilling and mixology skills.
It might always be sunny in Philadelphia, but it’s forever spring in the archipelago of Madeira. Made up of three main islands (Madeira, Porto Santo and Desertas), this geographical marvel flung out in the Atlantic is regularly voted Europe’s best island escape.
And with its deliciously temperate climate year-round, extraordinary tropical flora and fauna, dramatic forested mountains and hilltop villages, it’s easy to see why. Start by exploring Madeira’s capital city, Funchal, with its glorious colonial architecture, charming independent shops, restaurants, and wineries.
Don’t miss Blandy’s wine lodge where you can sample the island’s famous sweet and syrupy fortified wine. Next, head up high for a quintessential island experience – walking along the levadas (mini canals in the hills that used to transport goods) in the spectacular hills and valleys. Desertas is completely uninhabited (the clue is in the name) and virtually inaccessible, but Porto Santo with its 9km stretch of golden sandy beach, makes a delightful day trip.
