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.

Places to holiday in Funchal, Madeira

Calheta is both stunningly beautiful and a mecca for sailing enthusiasts staying in a Funchal holiday villa. Santa Cruz is a more remote location, set on the back of a secluded bay beach, and offering some beautiful rural scenery.

Weather in Funchal, Madeira

Funchal is blessed with one of the most enviable climates in the world. Temperatures never become scorchingly hot, peaking at around 34°C, and never averaging less than 15°C even during the winter.

Flights to Funchal, Madeira

Madeira Airport (FNC) is also known as Funchal International as it is located within half an hour of the city centre. Direct flights are provided by British Airways, but for the largest range of cheap flights to Madeira, look for flights to mainland Portugal and connecting flights to Madeira from there.

Third time we have stayed and love the place

5 of 5
The apartment is very spacious with everything we needed for a brilliant holiday. Balcony enormous with great views of the pool, sea and cliffs. Airport bus direct to the door. Bus service from road above apartment good. Can walk easily to the beach and nice walk along the coast to Camara de Lobos. Pool great and sea just over the wall. Tempted not to tell how good it is so that we can have it for ourselves. Great place to stay.

Everything we hoped for.

5 of 5
We spent a week at the apartment, Quinta Victoria. The location was excellent. The apartment is luxorious and was fully equipped and very clean. We received a nice " welcome pack" which gave a good clue that these people cared about us having a nice time. Our arranged transfer to and from the airport was excellent as was our greeting at the apartment by Rita. We had a great holiday and would have no hesitation in recommending this apartment and Madeira.
