                                                      Amazing view villa

                                                      5 of 5
                                                      This was the name of the villa and certainly lived up to its name. Anna and Lionel were extremely helpful with arranging things to make our holiday run smoothly. The villa is very comfortable with everything you need. There is a bus stop at the end of the road for the trip into Funchal and easy to get a taxi back in the evening or it was a good walk downhill of 15 minutes to the nearest restaurants. I can highly recommend this villa.

                                                      Lovely Stay at Old Town Flat

                                                      5 of 5
                                                      We had a wonderful time in Funchal and enjoyed staying at Old Town Flat. Everything we wanted was within walking distance - gardens, the cable car, restaurants and supermarkets. We will definitely be back. A very relaxing holiday.

                                                      Excellent apartment in perfect setting

                                                      5 of 5
                                                      This was our third visit to to the lovely island of Madeira and this apartment was a great find. It was very comfortable, clean and well maintained and had the best range of kitchen utensils we have found anywhere. The rooms were a generous size for two people. The owner was away from Madeira during our stay but kept in regular contact by email to ensure all was well for us. We were welcomed by Dulce and Teresa who had prepared the apartment for us and gave us information we needed. The uninterrupted sea views from the balcony were wonderful and the building's position a short way down a slight hill from the main Estrada Monumental meant it was away from any traffic noise but handy for shopping, eating out and catching buses. Two good restaurants are practically on the doorstep "Moby Dick's" and the "Atlantic". We were also ideally situated for walks along the promenade which stretches to the west from the newly refurbished Lido or to the east into the centre of Funchal, the marina promenade and the Old Town. We would be happy to recommend this apartment to anyone and hope to return there again soon.
