We very much enjoyed our stay at Miguel and Teresa’s apartment. The flat has spectacular views of Funchal from the spacious balcony, which looks magical at night with all the lights. The apartment is located a few minutes walk from the largest supermarket in Funchal, and is very close to the seafront, restaurants, bus stops, and old town. It was very clean and comfortable, and had everything we needed. You couldn’t wish for a better location.
Miguel is an excellent host, and collected us from the airport when we arrived, and Teresa drove us back when it was time for us to leave, getting us to our flight with plenty of time to spare.
We had a wonderful holiday, and are definatly planning to come back to the apartment next year.
Thank you Miguel and Teresa for a great holiday.
Very best wishes.

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.
