About Us

Over 100 projects completed

We first starting building peoples dream villas in Madeira in 2001, this was for the buyer who had a clear idea of the ideal property they truly desired. Our bespoke villas are reflection of the ideas and dreams that our clients always cherished. Since 2001 we have been trusted to deliver over 100 bespoke projects and we have earned an enviable reputation for the quality of property completed.

The desired property

When considering purchasing a property in Madeira, many people opt to design a villa that is designed to their unique requirements. Often this is because buyers cannot find a property that fills their needs from those available on the market. There are many benefits to designing your own property, firstly you get exactly what you are looking for from the outset. A design and build project allows you to realise your design aspirations without compromise and create the lifestyle that you have always desired. It is also a more affordable way of living in a premium countryside location especially when compared to selecting from market housing.

An idyllic lifestyle

Whether you're looking to enjoy a city lifestyle, or relax at a country retreat, Madeira has something to offer. Funchal, the island's capital, is a wonderful city with constant tourism throughout the year. This has attracted a wide variety of restaurants, bars and activities to the centre. For those looking for a more peaceful setting, the scenic countryside village of Ponta do Sol is an idyllic location. Dramatic coastal views and year-round good weather make this a popular choice for design & build buyers. Bespoke Villas has many excellent building plots available across Madeira, to fit a variety of budgets, including several in the sought-after Ponta do Sol area.

Experienced team

In our experience, many clients already have a clear idea of what their dream home would look like and of the lifestyle they would enjoy while living there. Bringing those ideas and expectations smoothly together in Madeira requires an experienced team, with professional expertise.


Our architect, David Challinor, is the Principal of a RIBA-chartered Practice, based in Brighton & Hove, he specialises in designing stylish contemporary homes that inspire creative, healthy and sustainable lifestyles. As well as being a chartered architect, David also has Masters in Landscape & Urban Design, which allows him to take a holistic approach to architecture and landscape design, ensuring your villa will complement its picturesque natural setting.

Your design aspirations

David has visited all of the plots available with Bespoke Villas, this allows for a flexible and responsive approach to creating a villa that is tailored to your requirements. Our designs can be adapted to incorporate your ideas and individual tastes. To develop the design, our team will work closely with you from the outset of your project.
