The 15th century Cathedral which stands proudly in the centre of town makes for fascinating viewing from any of the rental villas in Funchal.

There is actually only one beach in Funchal, which is located at Praia Formose, a spectacular black sand beach adorned with large cobbles. Around the marina however are a range of Madeira’s finest seafood restaurants and cafes which serve the finest of the days catch.

The marina is the departure point for both whale watching trips and cruises to the idyllic Porto Santo Island.

Self-catering Funchal - Holiday Rentals (300+)

 

Recent Reviews

Lovely apartment by the sea.

5 of 5
This was our second time in this area and we just love the location, in easy reach of Funchal but peaceful and away from it all . The apartment was spotlessly clean and very comfortable with everything needed for a self catering holiday. The star has to be the wonderful balcony, double sized and facing right on to the sea with beautiful views of the Cabo Girao. Go to sleep and wake up to the sound of the waves. Niara was a fantastic host and gave us a very warm welcome . She was always on hand if needed and very helpful with lots of knowledge about Funchal and Madeira. I definitely hope to back.

Great accommodation, would recommend

4 of 5
The flat suited us very well, and we liked the location and view. We had a problem with the electrics, but had a contact to phone, and it was resolved that day. More mugs would be useful!
