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.

Excellent apartment in lovely Lagos!

5 of 5
We will be recommending Lagos and this apartment to those we know who will be visiting the Algarve. The apartment was very clean and well-maintained, and the listing provided excellent descriptions and photos of the layout and amenities. Mark, the owner, was very helpful and easy to deal with. In terms of the apartment itself, the living room/dining room is a very good size and the kitchen is very functional and well equipped. The bedrooms are identical in size, with a queen-sized bed in one, and twin beds in the other. Although the bedrooms are a little small, the closets in them are very large, and you can simply unpack your suitcases into them for convenience and a bit more space. The outside terrace is excellent, and you can generally find a spot with either sun or shade at any time of day. We were travelling as a family of four (two parents, an 11-year-old, and a grandma), and the accommodations were perfect for what we needed. They would also work well for a family with several children, or two couples, as there are two full bathrooms in the apartment. Of note, there is a major construction project occurring near the apartment building (perhaps another apartment complex?), and while we did not find it disruptive in the least (even when sitting outside) there is some noise. Parents with very young children who need daytime naps and who are easily awoken may wish to take this into account. In terms of location, the building is next to a supermarket (so convenient!), and a short drive or a 20 minute walk to the Old Town. We were visiting in April and never had a problem finding parking near the Old Town, although this may be more challenging at the peak of the tourist season. Lagos itself is lovely, and we enjoyed multiple trips to the Grand Beach (the water is rather chilly in April!), a grotto boat tour, a cliff walk (the blue sea! cliff top flowers!), a visit to Silves, and the scenic drive out to Sagres (make sure to stop at the Sagres Fort, and find the 'monster').

Lovely villa, ideal family accommodation.

5 of 5
A lovely villa, well cared for with lovely views and central location. Ideal for golfers and surfers. Our 5 and 2 year old grandchildren loved the heated pool. The four bedrooms worked well for 8 of us and I loved it being on one level as we didn't have to worry about stairs. Plenty of parking too.
