The apartment has everything you need for a self catering stay, sunny patio. comfortable lounge, well equipped kitchen. There is a little convenience store next door and a full range of shops about 1 km up the hill. The nearest resturants seemed to be about 3 km away so not walking distance and the traffic was a little busy but then it is everywhere in Funchal. The owner was very friendly did everything he could to make us welcome even though he did not have much English.

Niara couldn't have been more welcoming and helpful during the booking process and our stay. Apartment in great location with amazing views and sunsets. With lots of excellent restaurants within walking distance. We had the most brilliant day tour with Niara's husband Miguel in his amazing old jeep such a fun way to see the beautiful island of Maderia so pleased we booked before arriving. Hope to return again very soon.
