Self-catering Funchal - Holiday Rentals (300+)

Magical Madeira!

5 of 5
From the moment we arrived, we were made to feel so welcome. Hugo met us on arrival at the house and proved to be a wonderful host - not intrusive in any way but kind and generous with his time and nothing was too much trouble for him. The accommodation was stylish, clean and homely and equipped with all that anyone needs for a self-catering holiday. The view from the balcony is wonderful and a perfect place to sit and relax. We would advise that the walk up from the seafront can be slightly challenging on the hottest of days but as we like to walk, we found it a way to get a little exercise to burn off the excess calories gained from over-indulgence! There are, of course, numerous taxis readily available along the seafront if you do not wish to walk. The wine festival was in full flow during our first week which meant that there was plenty of activity along the seafront to enjoy. In our second week we enjoyed the cable car ride up to Monte and took the opportunity to explore other parts of the island which gave us a flavour of its outstanding beauty. In summary, we had a thoroughly enjoyable time and cannot recommend Hugo and his accommodation highly enough - we certainly intend to return.

Amazing location and stunning apartment

5 of 5
Had a wonderful time here. The apartment is beautifully situated on the beach. It is quite a way out of town but we soon discovered how to reach the bus stops with the minimum of effort! The apartment really is a home from home. Extremely well provisioned, couldn't think of a thing that wasn't provided. I miss it already and I've not been home 24 hrs yet!
