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.

Set up in the hill of funchal, transport would be desirable although I would imagine taxi's would be approximately €5-6 into Lagos. An ideal location to explore from with a fantastic beach at praia De Luz just a 5 minute drive away or travelling in the opposite direction you'll find the truly amazing beaches and coves of Alvor a must visit whilst travelling in the Algarve. Elke and her family are lovely host's living on site who you know are there but leave you to enjoy the peace and tranquillity of your surroundings. Very helpful, including making themselves available at 10pm to print off our return boarding passes and offering the use of their computer to book tickets to local attractions. We travelled to fewolagos at the end of August for 10 nights with our 8 year old daughter who was in heaven with a generous sized pool just feet from the front door. The lodge is a genuine little gem fully equipped with everything you would need, and was absolutely spotless. The pool is cleaned regularly and the grounds are immaculate. The only 1 thing it could benefit from would be an outlet for the portable air conditioning unit as it had to go out through the door. That being said we WILL be returning... Definitely the best small family holiday experience we've had!! Thank you to the 'Stolker's'

                                                                                                    I had high hopes for this property from looking at the photographs here - and they were completely exceeded! As you twist and turn down the dusty dirt roads you could never imagine what lies behind the gate; a real oasis, it felt like a little bit of the Caribbean. Palm trees and winding cobbled paths, soft grass underfoot, a pond full of terrapins, lots of shady nooks and crannies and that beautiful pale blue swimming pool at the heart of it! It was like having a tiny five star resort all to ourselves! The house was perfect too; open plan, well furnished and cool in spite of 30+ degrees. We were four adults, two teenage girls, one nine year old girl and a teenage couple who had the luxury of the separate detached cottage all to themselves (often the 'annexe' or 'studio' accommodation in rental villas is not as nice as in the main house - this was absolutely not the case here, the cottage is very high quality indeed). There are three twin rooms on the ground level, all spaced far enough apart for no noise to carry at all, and another gigantic bedroom upstairs with a full width terrace overlooking the tropical gardens. The house had everything we could ask for; kitchen basics, pool towels, games, citronella candles, a library of books, guide books, enough cutlery and crockery for twice as many people as the house holds.Everything was clean and fresh, a testament to the time and care that housekeeper Julia takes during her end of stay clean and twice weekly visits. Location wise, as others have said, a car is vital. It really does feel as though you're in the middle of nowhere as you approach the house (and not in a good way) and there is nowhere at all within walking distance. We ate out for lunch some days but had dinner in the villa every night to save on organising taxis which sounds like it might be a bit of a nightmare. But it's only ten minutes to the main road into Lagos and Luz so once you're on the road everything is very close at hand and accessible. We rent a big villa every summer and this is by far the best and probably the first one that I would want to return to. Just magical and perfect, a little slice of paradise.

Great villa with everything you need and to a good standard and very clean! Highly recommend this two bed villa, with wifi and garage-perfect for keeping the hire car cool during summer algarve heat! Location is great with prefect access and waking distance to lakeview pool and the clubhouse. Ants were a problem if the children dropped crumbs but this is always a problem irrespective of which villa (stayed in several!) this is just Portugal/boavista! Location also great for visiting other villages, near to Luz and Lagos but also able to easily visit Salema, Burgau etc! Thankyou so much for allowing us to stay in your lovely villa....it was a great stay!
