Make a holiday apartment or accommodation in Funchal, Portugal your home away from home

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.

Places to holiday in Funchal, Portugal

Praia da Luz is the closest, and finest, beach to a Funchal holiday rental. Having been awarded with the European Blue Flag for safety and cleanliness, and having captured the imagination of tourists through its multi-coloured sandstone cliffs, Praia de Luz is a real favourite with visitors. 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.

Flights to Funchal, Portugal

The international airport of Faro (FAO) is located just 80km from a holiday rental in Funchal, Portugal. Daily flights leaving the UK arrive in Faro in just 3 hours, meaning that you can be settling into your accommodation in Funchal within hours of leaving home.

A great place for exploring Lagos

5 of 5
The villa was very well appointed and the pool was a lovely place to relax in and around. It is handily situated near to an Aldi supermarket and we were able to do our daily food shop very easily. The villa is on a hill at the top of the town and this gives a great view of the town and the coast. We were able to see a wonderful sunrise on the roof terrace one morning. The villa owner was very friendly and responded quickly to all of our questions.

Fantastic stay

5 of 5
Myself and 7 other friends stayed at this villa at the start of August and i can not praise it enough. The pictures do not do it justice, it is huge! It is fully equipped with everything you need as is the kitchen so we ate in most evenings and the big gas bbq made it even better. The whole property is well maintained, including the gardens which has lime trees, tomatos, almonds it really is beautiful. The pool and pool area is just amazing for those sunbathing days and the whole stay was perfect from start to finish. The owners cater to your every need and very responsive to messages and i can't thank them enough. Barbara their house lady is also welcoming and assists you if you need it. I will be recommending this villa to anyone wanting a comfortable amazing stay :) A taxi into town is around 10 minutes and costs roughly 10 euros so cheap if there is a few of you.
