Why Cristina Abreu chose Funchal
Old world charm, the best madeira has to offer: Beautiful properties with reat attention to detail, stylish decoration and comfort. 24h service and help on hand nearby if needed with our property manager. We live close by and would not live in any other part of Madeira or Funchal, the views are breathtaking and its a daily pleasure to enjoy the sea and climate in a peaceful setting with nice gardens around. We love being so close to the restaurants of the old town and popping into the market to buy flowers and fish on foot. The area is warm and safe, unspoilt with stunning old manor houses lining the streets with flower trees. Just in front is a divine tropical garden. Away from the bustle and noise of the touristic areas. We offer information on the best places to go, eat and visit. Enjoy the luxury of the best location, seaviews in your home from home.
