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.

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.

It did not disappoint at all. The villa is spacious, beautifully designed with wonderful outdoor living space too. We holiday as 2 families of 4 and the 4 large bedrooms with their own bathrooms were perfect for us. The wifi was also the best we've had in Portugal! Boavista is a great location, though we hire cars so can easily access supermarkets and different beaches. Lagos is wonderful, full of restaurants shops and activity. Likewise Luz and Burgau. We visited Quinta do Lago (soulless) and Villamoura ( fantastic marina). Our best holiday so far. Thanks go to Andre and Jacinta who are a delight to deal with - efficient, helpful, kind - couldn't be better. ( We are a bit reluctant to post this review as we don't want to share this piece of heaven too much !)

Large and clean bedrooms, great kitchen, numerous eating and gathering areas, beautiful grounds, great gym -- it has it all ! We hired Roberto from thechefaffairs.com and he provided PHENOMENAL dinners for several of our nights. Also good restaurants in town (Camilo and Kiko stand out). We were 10 guys on a golf trip and to a man, everyone thought the place was fantastic.

Traditional simple Portugese styling inside, comfortable communal area and an extensive array of kitchenware along with outside bbq space meant that meals were a pleasure. Friendly Michael and Yoka very helpful and popped by a few times to check the pool tended to and our stay met expectations. Advised Michael that Toaster was broken and a he had a replacement within a couple of hours.
