Lovely apartment in good location

5 of 5
We really enjoyed our week in the apartment. Its spacious, well equipped, comfortable and quiet with wonderful sea views. The location is convenient for local shops, restaurants, a post office and other facilities. Its also only a short walk to several bus stops so accessing central Funchal and the southern, central and eastern parts of the island is easy. A car is probably needed for reaching the more remote northern and western parts unless organised trips are used. Cath was friendly and helpful and made us feel very welcome. We would recommend the apartment to family and friends and certainly use it again ourselves.

A genuine hidden Madeiran gem! Beautiful hideaway unbelievably in a central location within Funchal

5 of 5
Although we only know a few places in Funchal we are sure that The Cottage must be one of the best. We had an unforgettable stay on the island in particular driven by the cottage both in its location and grounds - and most importantly our hosts . Everything was as described or better and the view from the cottage onto the grounds is simply amazing. Absolutely terrific hosts and their property offers something genuine and magical to visitors; a rare find where the original Madeiran culture meets modern needs. Situated in a quiet quarter in the town there is only a short walk to the sea, restaurants and city centre. The Island is really overwhelming with incredible landscapes and architecture. Thank you once again to our very kind hosts. Highly recommended and we would definitely stay again.
