ELEGANT SELF CATERING 2 BEDROOMS (SLEEPS 4) APARTMENT IN THE HEART OF OLD TOWN

Photos and Description of this 2 bedroom holiday apartment in Funchal - Charming Old Town Flat

In Funchal heart of the Old Town, by the sea. Sea views, near gardens & market

Funchal Charming Old Town Flat

An elegant two-bedroom self-catering apartment in the prime location in town, Funchal's new old hot spot - the old town (or 'Zona Velha'). Albeit in such a vibrant part of the Zona Velha, it's a very quiet apartment, away from the street noise.

You can relax in this fabulous apartment, with views overlooking Funchal, and enjoy the especially lovely sunsets from your private balcony. For truly amazing views, use the scenic rooftop terrace above the apartment, where you can stretch out or just be inspired by some amazing views over Funchal.

Enjoy the trendy lifestyle of the old streets of Zona Velha within a 2-minute stroll. Experience the smells and tastes of Madeira at the Farmers Market ('Mercado dos Lavradores') within 3 minutes where you can easily find everything from fresh fish, vegetables and fruits to flowers and traditional handicrafts. And why not go swimming in the sea at Barreirinha Beach? Take advantage of year-round sunshine and warm Atlantic Ocean waters less than a 10-minute walk away. Explore the centre of town, just a 12-minute walk to visit the Sé Cathedral and the charming cafés by the Theatre.

No car is needed, although we do offer a free parking place if you do decide to hire one.

Wir waren für eine Woche in der Wohnung im Herzen der Altstadt in Funchal. Die Lage und Ausstattung der Wohnung ist wie in der Beschreibung angegeben.
Man ist zu Fuß in drei Minuten an der Markthalle oder auch im Herzen der Altstadt. Restaurants gibt es hier genügend zur Auswahl.
Die Wohnung ist sauber und gut gepflegt. Auf der Dachterasse waren wir nicht. Der Service und die Organisation für die Übergabe hat gut funktioniert.
An der Station für die Kabinenbahn in den Botanischen Garten ist man in in 5 Minuten.
Wir waren mit der Wohnung und dem Service insgesamt sehr zufrieden und werden sie auch weiter empfehlen.

Spacious apartment in a great central location.

  • 4 out of 5
For this trip to Madeira we wanted an apartment in the centre of Funchal and the location of Old Town Flat was perfect being only a short walk from restaurants,bars,shops etc.
The apartment itself is spacious,clean and well equipped,including wifi and flat screen T.V.There's a small south facing balcony with views of the sea.
We spent 2 weeks here and overall were very happy with our choice,we would certainly stay here again.

Beautiful Apartment in a great Location

  • 5 out of 5
Thank you so much for allowing us to use your beautiful apartment. It was perfect for our family. It was very clean and had everything we needed to feel at home. Loved the free wifi and IPAD! This island is probably one of the most beautiful places I have ever seen and will most likely return.


In terms of food; we absolutely loved our dinner at the Forte. Make reservations ahead of time. Also they have two sisters restaurants. Mozart and Goya. If you book in advance, they will give you a discount to try all three. Highly recommend.


We also loved “Portão” and “Sabor a Fado” for entertainment (foo was okay at the latter).


We highly recommend the Levada Walks. We did to island tours, east and west (great to see everything) but we wished we could have hiked more.
We did one half day Levada Walks towards the end and wanted more. We used “Pride of Madeira” pretty cheap excursions.


We hope this helps your next visitors

Wonderful Holiday At Old Town Flat

  • 5 out of 5
We had a fabulous holiday in Funchal and the apartment had everything we required and more . Vera could not have been more helpful throughout the booking process - prior to our holiday , during our holiday and after our return home . She is a very friendly kind lady and although not having met her she feels like a friend . The flat is well furnished having some lovely pieces of furniture making it feel like a home from home . All the essentials were there meaning we did not have to buy products for keeping the flat clean etc . There are lots of books , dvd's , an I Pad for your use , free WiFi , lots of information on Madeira and walks that you can do , recommended restaurants ( which are well worth a visit ) etc . The flat was very clean , beds are very comfortable and the flat has the facilities for you to live as you do at home , having full cooking facilities etc . It was lovely to celebrate my sisters 30th Wedding Anniversary whilst on our holiday and Vera had left a lovely welcoming package for us on our arrival which was really appreciated and since returning home I am enjoying looking through the book she gave us which reminds us of our truly wonderful holiday . I would have no hesitation in recommending this apartment to friends and family and will definitely return when next in Madeira . This is our 2nd holiday in Funchal and we much prefer staying in the Old Town area as oppose to the Lido where we stayed on our 1st visit , although nice also this area is more to our liking . We found the prices more reasonable than the UK for eating out and drinks and food is generally a very good quality . The flat is very central - the famous market , large supermarket , shops , restaurants , cafes , bars , sea , harbour all within 5 minutes walk . The balcony looks onto a lovely little park and catches the sun all day and Vera has some lovely touches like candles on the balcony , in the bathrooms and in the lounge making it a calm , relaxing and romantic environment . We only wish we could have stayed longer and did not want to return home having spent a lovely week at the old town flat , enjoying some much needed winter sunshine . Thanks again Vera and also to AYS Madeira Property Management who we booked our transfers through and were very reliable . Obrigada Vera from , Violet , Nigel , Anna and Ewan .

The Old Town Flat is located in the middle of Funchal’s Old Town, 15 minutes by car from the airport. 'Zona Velha' is the oldest quarter of the city and now the most popular tourist destination for locals and visitors. It is the trendiest place in town, the main hotspot in Funchal.

With cobbled streets lined by traditional buildings (some dating back to the 15th Century), it is full of life, culture and spirit, with a variety of shops, bars and restaurants (and, for foodies, some of the best restaurants in town).

All the facilities at your doorstep (walking distances in minutes)

• ATM cash machines – 3 minutes

• Health clinic – 2 minutes

• Market – 3 minutes

• Pharmacy – 3 minutes

• Post office – 2 minutes

• Shopping centre – 5 minutes

• Supermarket – 3 minutes

• Taxi stop – 5 minutes

Suggestions (walking distances in minutes)

• Restaurants: For fish, “Gavião Novo” (best restaurant in town), “Marisa” and “Jango”. For meat, “Taberna da Esquina”. For rice “Riso”. Other popular restaurants: “O Forte”, “O Armazém do Sal”, “Sabor a Fado”, “O Tapassol”. All of them in less than 5/10 minutes.

• Pastries: “Penha d’ Águia” (2 minutes): try delicious “queijadas” and “pastel de nata”.

• Bars: “Espanada da Barreirinha” (10 minutes): for a pre-dinner drink with sunset views. “Venda Velha” and “Mercearia da Poncha” to drink the most famous Madeira drink, the Poncha. Not to be missed: those with maracujá and tangerine.

• “Barreirinha” beach (10 minutes): A public beach with a sea level solarium.

• “Socorro Church” (10 minutes) also known as “The Santa Maria Maior Church”.

• Rua de Santa Maria (4 minutes) – Strolling down the narrow streets you can enjoy some of the old culture that’s left in this particular part of town. A lot of the old buildings still exist, some of which have been transformed into restaurants and bars. In addition, there is a new attraction, the “Arte de Portas Abertas”, which is a public art programme to transform the Old Town into a permanent outdoor art gallery, displaying over 200 works of art, by invited artists, painted on Rua de Santa Maria’s doors. This colourful project has helped to revitalise this part of town and make it more culturally significant for both locals and visitors.

• Mercado dos Lavradores (3 minutes) – The Farmers Market is a must see! It is one of the highlights that Madeira has to offer, where all scents, colours, flavours and tradition combine to delight those who visit it. Built in 1939, in a gracious combination of ‘art deco’ and the modernist style, the main entrance and interior are decorated with panels of tiles, produced in Lisbon’s once-famous ceramic factory. Here you will find the very best Island produce. Fresh exotic fruits, vegetables, fish and flowers in a picturesque setting. The flower sellers are dressed in the typical, colourful Madeirense costume adding yet more vibrancy to this magical place.

Inside, there are two floors and a huge central courtyard, where vendors engage in selling day-to-day products. You will even be allowed to do a bit of tasting before you buy. (A popular exotic fruit to taste is a cross between a maracujá and a banana). In the rear, you will find the fish market. Here you will see fish freshly caught (some are brought in still alive) from all over Madeira. Well known will be the black scabbard fish with its huge eyes, razor sharp teeth and long eel-like body. Taste, smell, vivid colours, fun and tradition!

• Forte de São Tiago (8 minutes) and the Museum of Contemporary Art - The beautiful Forte de Sao Tiago that was used to protect the city of Funchal from possible invasions is also at the old town. The fort has small watchtowers and sentinel boxes from the XVII century.

• Madeira Story Centre (5 minutes) – A modern museum about the history and culture of Madeira. The Madeira Story Centre will take you on a journey through the great historical events in Madeira, from the volcanic formation to the days of Dom Henriques, the first landing of a sea air-plane, Napoleon and Churchill.

• Cable Car (6 minutes) - This is an exciting way to show Madeira's hidden beauty gliding over some of the wonderful landscapes of Madeira.
