Quinta Girassol is a beautiful restored old farmhouse, with large gardens, heated swimming pool and direct sea-view, tucked into the hillside above the south coast village of Ponta do Sol, known as one of the sunniest places on the island. It is without doubt the perfect holiday retreat and gives you the beauty and tranquillity of the Madeiran countryside, yet only a 25 minute drive to the hustle and bustle of the capital, Funchal.

A wealthy American-Madeiran family had the Quinta Girassol built around 1920. The manor house was built as a summer house next to the much older stable in the middle of a banana plantation. Decades later the Dutchman van Baaren, who had come to Madeira from the colonies in Sigapur, acquired the property from the Madeiran family. His daughter, the interior designer Jade van Baaren renovated the buildings and the property in the 2000s. The banana grove was transformed into a small park and a nice free-style pool was integrated. The furnishing of the villa, a mixture of antiques, English style furniture and traditional Madeirian wooden furniture, give the house its incomparable charm. The garden, which is crossed by a real levada, is planted with a variety of subtropical and tropical plants. Along the old levada, a rocky path leads up to the stone water tank, on which a newly designed sun deck invites you to enjoy a sundowner. From there you can enjoy an incomparable view of the ocean, the mountains and the old town of Ponta do Sol.
In March 2020 the German actress Angelika Fanai-Nimmesgern and the photographer Stefan Nimmesgern acquired the Quinta Girasssol. The two artists, who live part of the year in their house on Lake Starnberg, have created a second home in Madeira. Both immediately fell in love with the old quinta and went out of their way to acquire it. The Quinta Girassol is managed in the interests of its previous owners and offered to special guests as a holiday home.

Entrance is via a large covered hacienda with dining table and chairs for dining al-fresco, and comfy wicker chairs for relaxing with a glass of wine. On the ground floor you have the traditionally furnished lounge with comfortable sofa, armchairs, plasma TV and DVD player. The well-equipped kitchen with adjoining dining area opens directly onto the front terrace.

Upstairs are the three bedrooms, one with en-suite bathroom, two of which have French windows opening out to a large balcony and stunning ocean views. The third bedroom overlooks the large garden and shares the family bathroom.

The heated freeform swimming pool occupies the south facing sun terrace with sea-views.

Surrounding the pool terrace and to the side of Quinta Girassol are large mature gardens with lawns and trees. Through them runs a real working typical Madeira levada (irrigation channel).

Pool heating is optional and costs €120 for a setting of 24ºC, payable in cash on arrival. For higher temperatures, there is an added supplement of 30€ per week per degree C setting above 24ºC, up to a maximum of 26ºC.Please note that pool heating should be requested at least one week prior to arrival to ensure the correct water temperature; if requested at the last minute or after arrival, the minimum amount is the price for one week, due from the time pool heating is turned on.

The Quinta Girassol is located in the beautiful and sunny Ponta do Sol at exactly 100 meters above sea level. Directly opposite the Caminho das Terças, a steep old stairway, leads to the middle of the old town and the beach. It is only 500 meters to drink a fresh poncha in one of the bars or restaurants, enjoy an espada or immerse yourself in the blue Atlantic.
By car, the way to the old town is of course more comfortable and can be done in less than 5 minutes.
The property and the carport of Quinta Girassol are located directly on Estrada Regional 222 and can therefore be reached without any effort.

Ponta do Sol resort, at sea level, 5 minutes by car (2,9 Km) away, is very popular for Villas in Madeira, and offers restaurants and cafés (and three small hotels), as well as a couple of trendy bars and 2km from the beach. Before reaching the town, you will find, on the roundabout that provides access to the motorway network, a small shopping centre with a row of shops and cafés and the nearest supermarket. Ponta do Sol is known as the sunniest place in Madeira, and the whole town front is a rocky beach with access to the sea.

There are walks around the hills of Ponta do Sol and easy access to the plateau of Paul da Serra, with its many levada walks, makes this villa perfectly located for walking in Madeira and for enjoying a lovely holiday surrounded by the beautiful Madeira countryside.

We know how important it is to find the right holiday home for your holidays, and searching through the many websites can be exhausting, time-consuming and confusing. And of course, you want to make sure you are dealing with a dependable company. Our commitment is to provide a unique, personal service, using our in-depth knowledge of Madeira (our island home) and of all the villas and apartments we feature, to assist you in making the right holiday rental choice.

All our properties are know to us personally.
