About the property

2 Bed Apartment with Atlantic Views, central Lido Location

This is a very well located 2 bedroom apartment in Lido, a central tourist area of Funchal. The flat features a well proportioned dining and lounge area and a sunny enclosed balcony. The master bedroom features a double bed, large wardrobe and a sea view. There is space and room for a baby cot.

There is a second bedroom, with bunk beds available to those travelling with children. This room is only open to those who pay the supplementary pricing associated with guests greater than 2. (Its an additional £10 per night for each guest over 2 guests).

There is a fully equipped kitchen, featuring a built in microwave, full oven and induction hob, plus a large fridge freezer. There is a dining table for up to 4 persons, plus a separate utility room featuring a washing machine, drying racks, ironing board and so forth.

The lounge area features a 34 inch television, fully equipped with the Portuguese equivalent of Sky +, with channels from the UK, France as well as local channels. There is a DVD player and a stereo with usb MP3 port.

Wifi is readily available, just plug in the password from the back of the router!

On the ground floor we have a very well stocked Supermarket open from 8am till 11pm daily. They serve hot food also, which you can eat in or take away. This supermarket (with an enclosed cash machine) and Post Office next door, mean that all your holiday needs are met within 20 metres of your front door!

The road where the apartment is situated was recently converted to a one way traffic/cycle pedestrian walkway. With multiple cafes and restaurants along the walkway, this means that you can walk on excellent quality paths all the way along to Forum Shopping Mall. It makes a great evening walk, without too much traffic and fantastic atlantic views.

Just 200 metres directly in front of the apartment is the new Lido Swimming Complex. Opened in early 2016 it features a large adults swimming pool, 2 children's pools and changing and cafe facilities. Its a wonderful new addition to the area and makes for wonderful swimming day for a fantastic entry of only 5 euros per person. (see our photo section for a picture of the pools).

The apartment features everything you need to have a wonderful break on this fantastic Atlantic Island. We would love to see you here enjoying the sun with us!

About Stephanie Nascimento

I am a New Zealand born British Citizen who moved to Madeira with my Portuguese husband in 2007. My husband & I run a property letting company in East London, and have 2 children. Currently living in Lisbon.

Stephanie Nascimento purchased this apartment in 2007

Why Stephanie Nascimento chose São Martinho

The View. We bought this apartment the moment we walked in, because the view is magnificient. As there is already developments in front of us, the view cannot ever be built out or lost, and the sun rises and sets in front of our apartment. Its warm (we barely needed a jumper in winter), and perfectly located with a supermarket on the ground floor and a bus to the centre right outside the front door.

My husband was born in Madeira, and Lido was always considered the best area in his opinion, with all the modern conveniences, not too many steep streets or difficult narrow roads (of which there are many in Madeira!), and the benefits of good restuarants, gyms, spas, walks, beaches, bars and a shopping mall with a cinema. (The only cinema on the island).

What makes this apartment unique

Our Lido Apartment is amazingly located. In the winter, the sun streams into the apartment and warms the flat perfectly. We rarely need more than a light jumper in the winter months, such is the warmth of the apartment. In the summer, when the sun is higher in the sky, we don't get the full force of the sun, but all the benefits of its brightness. Its perfect.

A fabulous modern apartment with everything you need for your stay in this island of paradise.

  • 5 of 5

This apartment is the best we have stayed in here in Madeira. The location couldn't be better it is on Estrada Monumental just above the road which runs between the Porto Mare hotel and the Melia Mare hotel. The apartment is directly above the Post Office on the 4th floor. In the same block is the Pingo Doce supermarket which is well stocked with everything you need on your holiday. The apartment itself is extremely comfortable, the beds I'm sure are some sort of memory foam making the so comfortable. Full cooker, dishwasher, washing machine, fridge/ freezer and microwave. The balcony is fantastic with an amazing view, it is totally closed in with double glazing and on a sunny day you can open the patio doors on the front. The apartment is south facind sp you get tge winter sun all day. The apartment is well worth considering because of the above and the ideal location above the Lido.

One of Our All Time Favorites

  • 5 of 5

Ocean views from an enclosed balcony, grocery shopping less than 50 steps away, a full kitchen with everything you need; this immaculate modern updated flat was our home for two weeks. It was difficult to leave this ideally located haven with restaurants and the bus stop conveniently located. We highly recommend this lovely, clean apartment. Our first trip to Madeira was fantastic and this flat with its close location to Funchal made our vacation very enjoyable.

Smart, clean appartment in a good location. Very pleased with our choice!

  • 5 of 5

Well decorated and furnished. Everything needed for our stay was there. Supermarket just downstairs. Good views over the rooftops of the nearby hotels to the sea. Plenty of good restaurants very close by. Good bus service into Funchal centre and the old town area. Convenient for the airport bus. Very good support during our stay. The apartment is relatively small but ideal for a couple, or a couple with young child/children.

I had a wonderful time at this Apartment, as I normally stay locally in a Hotel and my stay couldn't of went better as the Apartment is in a prime location in the Lido area of Funchal with lots of Restaurants, Bars, Supermarkets within a few metres of the Apartment. Stephanie was very friendly and informative which was very nice and Paulo who I met at the Apartment is really nice and it was a pleasure meeting him as he is a truly nice guy. I would defiantly recommend this property as it is in a well kept, safe area with a wonderful view of the Sea and I would be staying here again in the New Year if it was available, but I will defiantly come back anther time for a longer stay. Simply Amazing.

This is a perfect 2 bedroom sea view apartment in the centrally located area called Lido, in Funchal. Surrounded by 5 star accommodation, restaurants and bars and spas, our Lido Apartment offers amazing Atlantic Ocean views and a magnificent promenade for evening walks. The recent wonderful addition of a ONE WAY RESIDENTIAL PROMENADE in front of the apartment means you can walk cycle or scooter all the way to Forum. The new road has also the added benefit of reducing traffic noise, as we now only get traffic for deliveries to the supermarket and domestic cars who live on this small stretch of road. The widened footpath gives pedestrians a really nice relaxing experience, enabling them to soak up the flowers and plants that make Madeira Island so special.

Central Funchal and the Old Town are 20 minute walk, or catch the bus in 5 minutes.

Within 20 minutes walk are:

the casino (for shows, bars, nightclub),

the boating marina (for fishing and whale watching expeditions) movie cinemas and

Forum Shopping Mall with large supermarket, food hall, international stores including H&M

There is a wonderful little pebble 'city beach' just a few minutes’ walk from the apartment, & Praia Formosa, a large black sand beach, 3 miles away.

Its a very nice walk (of about 1.5 hours) to walk along the sea front promenade to Praia Formosa, and then take the wooden walkway all the way around the beach coast to Camara de Lobos.

Then you can have a traditional Madeiran lunch or drink and catch a taxi back to Lido.

Multiple tour companies operate around Lido, so opportunities abound to discover all the levada walks, beaches and mountain views that Madeira Island has to offer! You can take the opportunity to discover the island yourself, with a hire car (parking available if you request it!), or take a guided tour.

You can tap into the emerging eco tourist and extreme sport tourist activities now becoming available. There's parapenting, canyoning, and levada walks that are more extreme! I can put you in touch with a very experienced local parapente expert, if you fancy some ariel views of the island! (Just ask for details). It depends on the weather, if the wind and conditions are right! A truly amazing experience.
