Cozy City Apartment right in the Center of Old Town

  • 5 of 5

Everything was just perfect! This was our first time in Funchal, and I think we could not have picked a better place to stay. For starters, Rubim was very friendly, helpful, and promptly answered any questions throughout the 10 days we were there. Upon arrival, he welcomed us with local specialties including green wine, tasty honey cake and fresh fruit from his uncle's garden. The apartment itself was super cozy. We really enjoyed coffee in the morning on the balcony and wine in the evening. The location was ideal. We didn't have a car, but were able to see most of the island because it is situated just around the corner from all the bus stops. In the evening, I would not have chosen to be anywhere else either, there are so many restaurants and bars just down the street that are quite lively compared to the rest of the city- yet still quiet enough not to disturb us. I also really loved how the famous market was just a minute walk away, so we could eat seafood and fruit for breakfast every morning. I could go on and on about how great our holiday was! I would highly recommend staying in this apartment for a fantastic stay in Funchal!

Lovely apartment close to everything in the Old Town

  • 4 of 5

Really beautiful apartment at the top floor of a cute building on a major street in the Old Town. Skylight in the kitchen, balcony off the bedroom both very much appreciated. The photos really don't do it justice. In February it was a bit chilly at night, so bring warm clothes. There is a Pingo Doce grocery store just a few blocks away. Lots of bars nearby also so for weekend nights if you are a light sleeper you will want ear plugs. Tour companies will pick you up in front of Madeira Story Centre, which is just a two minute walk away. The cable car entrance is only 5 minutes walk, and whale watching was very close walking distance, too. Very convenient without a car. Rubim was extremely helpful and friendly and answered all my many questions about the area. Perfect for a person traveling on their own, or for a couple if you are cozy.

Un appartement confortable idéalement situé

  • 5 of 5

Cet appartement au cœur de la vieille ville est situé dans une rue piétonne charmante, animée par des petits restaurants et boutiques d'artisanat, à 2 pas de la mer. Il est très propre, joliment décoré avec tout le confort souhaitable et bénéficie d'une toute petite terrasse, qui permet de profiter du soleil.

Le propriétaire est très accueillant, attentif aux demandes et arrangeant.

Si nous revenons à Funchal, nous y retournerons, c'est sûr !
