Much has already been said about the wonderful location, and the fabulous high quality of the apartment. We have now stayed here 6 times, and having seen many different apartments, can honestly say that this is the best in Funchal. The location is so convenient for everything you need, shops, restaurants, and for the centre of Funchal. We really look forward to our next trip, it can't come soon enough!

Dabei erzählte er uns schon einiges über Madeira. Die Wohnung erklärte er uns ausführlich, sodass wir uns sofort wie zu Hause fühlten. Bettwäsche und Handtücher waren von guter Qualität. Die Sicht vom Balkon war herrlich, wir sahen das Meer, und die Seilbahngondeln fuhren direkt über unser Haus (völlig geräuschlos). Lediglich die Einrichtung der Küche war mäßig: wer längere Zeit dort ist und kochen möchte, findet nur unzureichende Pfannen (zwei hätten wir zu Hause gleich weggeworfen!) und einige Töpfe vor. Es gab je 1 Weiß- und Rotweinglas, die anderen waren rustikaler. Aber wir kamen zurecht. Die Lage der Wohnung ist sehr zentral, Altstadt und Busstationen fußläufig erreichbar. Es war sehr ruhig im Haus. Besonders hervorzuheben ist die Ausstattung mit einem IPad und den verschiedenen deutschen Fernsehsendern. wir würden die Wohnung jederzeit wieder mieten.

The initial booking process was extremely efficient and quick and Cristina replied to all my emails promptly. The villa itself is beautiful and is within walking distance to local supermarket and town so no car needed and also taxis are cheap and in abundance. Cristinas attention to detail is spot on and the apartments are truly gorgeous and comfortable. The views from the balconies are breathtaking and I loved watching the cruise ships manoevering their way in and out of the harbour. Would we go back again?.... Bet your life we would!!!
