Make holiday rental accommodation or a villa in Funchal, Portugal your home away from home

The capital of the Portuguese Island of Madeira, Funchal, is built upon the gentle slopes which surround the harbour forming a natural amphitheatre. No matter where your Funchal holiday rental is located within the city, the town centre will be accessible on foot. It is a beautiful city surrounded by even more beautiful scenery.

Things to do on holiday in Funchal, Madeira

A Funchal villa is surrounded by every type of scenery. To the front lies the sparkling sea, and behind are the rugged mountains of the interior of Madeira. The town itself is filled with botanical gardens, historic building, fine art galleries and modern shopping centre and markets. 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. At night, there are a few good bars and a casino to keep you entertained when renting a Funchal villa. The marina is the departure point for both whale watching trips and cruises to the idyllic Porto Santo Island.

The hills which surround Funchal are a dream for walkers and hikers, and the island offers a range of facilities for surfing, golf, scuba diving and balloon rides all year round. The Madeira Theme Park and Santa Cruz Aqua Park ensure that families will never run out of entertainment from self catering accommodation in Funchal.

Flights to Funchal, Madeira

Spacious apartment, lovely location

5 of 5
Our party consisted of two couples. We found the apartment to be clean, spacious and in a good location for the Old Town. Everything was as expected and all our needs were met. We also booked the transfer service from and to the airport which operated like clockwork. We would gladly stay at this apartment again.

Spacious apartment in perfect location

5 of 5
This is a very spacious one bedroom apartment in the perfect location for access to the old town, restaurants, shops and seafront in Funchal. The car park, which is within the apartment block, is also a real bonus, as is the free wifi. The apartment also has a lovely balcony offering great views, exactly like the photo in the advert. We enjoyed breakfast out here every day and often had dinner there too. There's information in the apartment for tourist attractions, transport etc. Communication with the owner before and on arrival was very prompt and reliable. We were met by a friendly and helpful manager who showed us around the property and gave us useful advice. The apartment is excellent value for money. We would definitely recommend it and would stay here again if we return to Madeira. Many thanks for everything - we had a great holiday!

Perfect.

5 of 5
Our second stay in this apartment, our only disappointment was that it was only available for the first of our two weeks in Funchal and so had to book into The Vine hotel next door for our second week. The apartment has everything you will need for a perfect stay in one of the best positions in Funchal..... modern, bright, clean, airy, great location and views, huge balcony, comfortable beds. We will be back again. Thank you Isabella.
