    Funchal, Portugal, not to be confused with Funchal, the capital of Madeira, is a traditionally designed development on the Funchal Ridge, which is one of the most prestigious areas of the western Algarve. Located high in the hills above the famous Algarve coastline, and just 3km from one of the nicest beaches in the area, a villa or apartment in Funchal is a wonderful option for those wanting a sun blessed Algarve beach holiday without the usual crowds.

    Things to do in Funchal, Portugal

    Accommodation on the Funchal Ridge is some of the most prestigious in the region, yet much of the area has managed to withstand the pressures of development, meaning that there are many fantastic walks to be done from your holiday rental accommodation in Funchal, walking through native flora and fauna, taking in the magnificent views of the coast afforded by the rocky ridge.

    No matter what time of year you arrive in an apartment in Funchal, the enormous variety of beaches within a few minutes drive will certainly be of interest. The wide, sand tourist beaches of Praia da Luz offer a huge wealth of water sports and tourist facilities, whilst the deserted cove beaches slightly further around the coast give you the feeling of owning your own stretch of one of Europe’s most beautiful coastlines. Water sports thrive in the area, especially scuba diving, surfing, sailing and windsurfing.

    The countryside which surrounds accommodation in Funchal is perfect for horse riding, fishing and even para-gliding, as the thermals rise off the sea and straight over the Funchal Ridge. The low lying land in the area is adorned with stunning golf courses, which take full advantage of their setting, by offering excellent views and naturally challenging fairways.

Located just a few minutes from an apartment in Funchal, surfers, swimmers and sunbathers will love its proximity.

    Lagos Town is a wonderful, ancient town, which has managed to avoid much of the over-development of mass tourism. The town is defiantly worth visiting from a Funchal villa, for both commercial and sightseeing reasons.

    Weather in Funchal, Portugal

    Summers are blissfully warm, perfect if you like it hot. Summer daily temperatures can regularly soar to around 40˚C, whilst in winter, the golf courses stay open to take advantage of the remarkably mild climate.
