Excellent apartment

5 of 5
The apartment was excellent both because of its location & the way it was equipped. The welcome was well organised & efficient. Couldn't fault it.

Fabulous view and secure off-road parking

5 of 5
Just spent 9 nights at this lovely apartment and enjoyed every minute. Bruno was very welcoming and the apartment had everything you could need. As we had a hire car, the secure off-road parking was really useful as the roads around Funchal are very narrow and parking is limited. The view was amazing, although there is no outdoor space (made clear when you book it), and the location is a good way out of the town, making a car essential. We did walk into town a couple of times (about 20 minutes downhill), but be prepared for a real slog back up the hill on the way home! There was a bus stop outside the apartment, but having a car we never needed to work out the logistics of using the bus, and there is a large supermarket easily accessible in 5 minutes by car. Overall, this was a great apartment on a lovely island. Thank you Bruno!
