Coming from Faro airport or Lagos:
From the motorway you take exit to N125/ Lagos/ Vila do Bispo and you will get to a roundabout leading to Lagos. Take the exit Lagos and you will soon get to a newly built roundabout (directions: Lagos/A22; Funchal; Vila do Bispo/Sagres; Luz). Take the second exit to “Funchal” (there is also a blue sign for the restaurant “Cachoa”). Pass by the restaurant and turn left on the end into an alley. The street will turn into a cobblestone road. Always follow that road up the hill. At some point there will be a 90° right-hand bend where it ascends another steep hill. Once the street is straight again, Vila Catarina is on the left hand.
Coming from Faro airport:
Once you are at the roundabout leading to the motorway, head into the direction of Sagres and Vila do Bispo on the N 125. You will soon get to a newly built roundabout (directions: Lagos/A22; Funchal; Vila do Bispo/Sagres; Luz). Take exit in direction of Sagres/ Vila do Bispo (N125) and stay on this street. In another round about take the 3rd exit direction “Luz”. The road will lead you to a roundabout with a big fake “palm tree” in the middle, here you take the first exit to the right. Follow this street until you see a wall saying “PARAISO DA LUZ” on the left-hand side. Turn left and, directly afterwards, turn right and the 2nd street left again. Almost there! At the next street turn right and you’ll see Vila Bela Luz at the end of the street on the right side. Notice that the entrance is around the corner. Welcome!

You will soon get into a newly built roundabout (directions: Lagos/A22; Funchal; Vila do Bispo/Sagres; Luz). Take the exit to “Luz” (the one after the exit to “Sagres/Vila do Bispo”) and stay on that road. After 5 minutes, you will see white buildings on the left-hand side and at the entrance you see a small sign „Quinta Formosinho“. That’s your base for the next days. If you drive past the brown sign „Praia“, you have missed us, because we are located 100m in front of the sign.
