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.

AMAZING APARTMENT IN A SUPERB LOCATION

5 of 5
I booked this apartment for myself and parents who are both retired and we all loved it. This was my fourth time at these apartments and have not had a negative experience once. The apartment itself is clean,well furnished and modern with everything you need to enjoy your stay. The change over as we took over the apartment was quick and well organised. There is a good variety of info regarding the local services and day trips, there is also a comments book to leave a review in, this would be helpful if it was your first visit. We stayed for 2 weeks and the apartment was cleaned and linen changed after the 1st week. The supermarket is 2 mins away and put some of British supermarkets to shame with the freshness of food and choice. We stayed in Sept-Oct and had no issues with sun beds or any noise etc I believe most of these apartments are owned by families and rented out during the main summer months and then they come early or late summer to enjoy the peace and quiet and early/late sun - if you want entertainment/music and bbqs then these apartments are not for you. There are security,handy men and cleaners who are there to help you if you require it. The town of Lagos is beautiful as is Silves where there is a castle and church that is well worth a visit - TIP - You can get a train for a few euros to Silves and explore yourself rather than paying for a day trip costing 25-30 euros Regarding eating in - Pingo supermarket has everything you need lovely cheeses,breads,fish and meat. There is a produce market on a Saturday morning by the bus station and the locals sell produce including fruit,veg,eggs,cakes,preserves and pickles, this is well attended by those who are self catering Eating out - You can’t get a better meal than The Marina Bar which is a 2 min walk on the harbour, they include a specials board and children’s meals. This has been one of the best apartments I have stayed in and well worth a visit Sarah

Comfortable, cosy, convenient and very characterful.

We loved this traditional house in the old town. Very spacious. Everything you could possibly want. Stairs were not a problem for us but bare them in mind. Loved the roof terrace with amazing views and made use of the bbq on quite a few evenings. A light on the roof would have been good as it gets dark early this time of year and it was a little difficult to see what we were cooking. Didn’t stop us using it though. Being right in the old town was a bonus as previously we have stayed on the outskirts and relied on buses and don’t run very late. We loved being able to walk to action. Having said that, the house is tucked far enough away so as not to be troubled by revellers. Comfy bed, good hairdryer (very important for us ladies), good citrus juicer and very well equipped kitchen. Good communication with the owners. A lot of very useful information about the house and it’s little quirks. Thank you Uta & Marc. We had a superb stay.
