Immaculate house with fantastic views

5 of 5
We were met by Pedro and Fernanda at their house and they are both lovely people. They greeted us with some madeira wine and cake (both very welcome!) and really helpful in showing all the facilities in the house. The house is kitted out with absolutely everything you would need for your holiday including a dishwasher, washing machine and two bathrooms! The view is fabulous and we enjoyed many nights on the balcony, admiring the view and sipping Madeira wine :) The house in very central and takes about 10 minutes to walk to the main streets in Funchal. However, we often took a taxi back on a night as Funchal is steep to walk in places and it cost less than five Euros. Overall we really enjoyed our holiday in Funchal and the stay in this house made it even better. We would recommend this house for a stay in Funchal and we hope to return here soon.
