Beautifully refurbished old house in the heart of the old town, close to the waterfront

  • 5 of 5

This beautifully refurbished house retains some of its original period features and is thoughtfully equipped for any length of stay in Madeira, with laundry facilities, spacious kitchen and television. It is located on a quaint cobbled street in the old part of the town yet is only a few minutes walk from the town centre, supermarket, and taxis and buses, so we could easily get to other locations on Madeira. There are many excellent restaurants on the streets near the house, and the well-equipped kitchen meant we could cook for ourselves too. We could see a glimpse of the sea from the bedroom window, and the waterfront was very close and our favourite places for an after-dinner stroll. The owners were so friendly and helpful. This property is definitely incredible value for money!

Beautiful apartment with everything we needed.

  • 5 of 5

This property was spotless and very well appointed. It is ideally located if you enjoy the buzz of the Old Town - which we do. It is situated just behind the Porto Santa Maria Hotel with lots of restaurants within a few minutes, level walking. Do try the bar at the end of the street (just a slight uphill walk). It has wonderful juice and coffee & you sit overlooking the sea. Most restaurants offer Tourist menus - usually soup and a choice of main course - for between 10 and 12eu. Or splash out and go a la carte with any number of fish choices. This was our 3rd visit to the Carnivale and probably the best ever. Ordered a return taxi online & it couldn't have been simpler at under 40eu. Finally, Carmo's husband and daughter met us on arrival and were very friendly & helpful. Many thanks to them both - and for the local treats.

This apartment was impeccably clean, comfortable, well-organized, and in a perfect location.

  • 4 of 5

Carmo was there to greet us and give us a walk-through and background of her family history with the house. The remodeling kept some historical features, but all appliances in the kitchen, bathroom and laundry were state-of-art contemporary. The bed was comfortable, and the bedroom well appointed for relaxing as well as having a desk for business needs.

While there were plenty of linens, towels, and toilet paper, we were surprised that we had to go buy such basics as hand soap, kitchen and laundry detergent, and basic cooking items like spices, salt and pepper, oil, etc.

On the other hand, we were greeted with some delightful Madeiran treats set on the kitchen table to introduce us to some of the delights of this island.

Lovely House in Old Town

  • 5 of 5

We were made very welcome by Carmo and her family. The house is lovely with all the amenities that one would wish for. The house was extremely clean and well looked after. It was exactly as described. The communication with the owner was exceptional. Nothing was too much trouble however many questions we asked. The situation is perfect for touring, being close to the cable car and bus stops. There are many restaurants to choose from in the neighbourhood with a very convenient little supermarket and bakery nearby. We wouldn't hesitate to recommend anyone going to Funchal to stay in Carmo's house.

Perfect condition in the old town of Funchal

  • 4 of 5

Perfect condition in the old part of Funchal.

Nearby are some nice restaurants which are visited also from the "Funchalis"themselves.

The only "Makel" is, that due to the nearness of the the flat to the tourist restaurants, sometimes it is very noisy until midnight!

Excellent flat in excellent condition - surely not my last stay here.

À deux pas du centre ville historique

  • 5 of 5

Un appartement en duplex cossu,très propre, dans une maison ancienne. Belle rénovation.

De 20h à 21h,chaque soir, musique à quelques mètres du podium placé devant la chapelle du Saint Corps.

Ajoutez à cela des propriétaires charmants et d'une extrême serviabilité.

Un petit conseil: venez sans voiture, elle vous encombrerait !
