Great base to visit sites in Funchal

  • 4 of 5

Very convenient, comfortable and great value. Great communication with the host and her recommended taxi driver. We would definitely consider staying here again.

City apartment on the ground floor.

  • 5 of 5

We stayed here in May 2016 and used both bedrooms and bathrooms. The apartment is located just outside the centre but before the massive hotel area starts. It is on the ground floor of a large residential block and has views to a shared garden. It was ideal for access to the city, the wonderful gardens, the bus routes, lidos and some restaurants. Initially we were a little disappointed there was no veranda and the lack of a nice view, however, we didn't intend to spend our time inside so very quickly we forgot these. The apartment was fully equipped, compact but with two bedrooms and two separate bathrooms it was ideal for us as two friends who wanted our own facilities. We would stay here again.

Cozy and convenient walk down to the main avenue . . .

  • 3 of 5

We enjoyed our stay and loved the privacy of having such a nice and clean apartment to come home to after a day of sightseeing. I could not believe the water pressure in the shower and the convenience of having every utensil imaginable in a small kitchen. I preferred to hand wash whatever dishes we used and that worked out just fine- even though there was a dishwasher. The television was a challenge at first, but we figured it out and was able to watch lots of US adventure movies and even the BBC news (my favorite)! Air conditioning was not necessary as gentle breezes blew through the giant windows- and privacy curtains.

Well equipped apartment in excellent position

  • 5 of 5

A pleasant two week stay in Madeira. The apartment is well suited for two people although one or perhaps two more could comfortably stay. It is very clean and exceptionally well equipped. It is situated close to the Casino and more or less equidistant from the Old Town and the Lido thus a fairly short walk to most of the facilities Funchal has to offer. We can recommend it.

Täydellinen, ihastuttava koti Funchalissa

  • 5 of 5

Madeiran lomamme onnistui erityisen hyvin siksi, että olimme sattuneet valitsemaan asunnoksemme tämän ihastuttavan huoneiston. Se on uudessa,

tosi rauhallisessa talossa ja täydellisesti varustettu sekä moitteettoman siisti ja viihtyisä. Asunnosta on sopiva n. 1 km matka Funchalin keskustaan ja mikäli ei jaksa pitkän päivän jälkeen kävellä enää kotiinpäin, on taxi halpa.

Kommunikointi vuokraemännän Amalian kanssa sujui mutkattomasti englanniksi.

Suosittelen mitä lämpimimmin tätä asuntoa, hinta ja laatu ovat todella kohdallaan.

amazing flat in the middle of green paradise

  • 5 of 5

Opis stanovanja je bil popoln - lega je bila dobro opisana, kratko hojo od centra mesta, v mirnem delu. Stanovanje je obdano z razgledom na ?udovit eksoti?en vrt palm in drugega zelenja. Prav tako je bila zelo dobra izto?nica za izlete, tako po Funchalu kot po otoku.?isto?a je bila popolna - vse pospravljeno in zelo ?isto ter odli?no ohranjeno in udobno. V stanovanju smo dobili brošure in zemljevide otoka ter predloge za izlete.

Glede na hribovito lego Funchala je bilo stanovanje vsekakor na izjemni legi - ?ez nekaj dni smo želeli preizkusiti še drugo nastanitev, ki pa je bil katastrofalna - visoko v hrib (20 min strme hoje iz centra) in zelo umazano in zanemarjeno.

Stanovanje smo že priporo?ili prijaltejem in ga mobo še naprej.

Lastnica je bil zelo prijazna ter nam omogo?ila dodatne stvari ob naši prošnji.

Known as the Pearl of the Atlantic Ocean, Madeira Island is a floating garden located 500 Km off the African coast and approximately 1000 Km from the European Continent, this archipelago is formed by the islands of Madeira (741 Km2 - 57 Km long by 22 Km wide), Porto Santo (42,17 Km2), Desertas and Selvagens, these last two uninhabited.

The climate is mild all over the year, with Summer temperatures between 25º/28º during the day and between 21º/24º at night. During the Winter, day temperatures change between 18º/21º and at night, between 13º/16º.

Due to the influence of the hot Golf Stream, sea water temperature is around 22º C in the Summer, gradually cooling to 18º C by late Winter.

The population of Madeira Island is about 245.000 inhabitants, and in Porto Santo is about 4500.

To visit all the interesting places in Madeira you need, at least, two weeks, but if you only have one week to stay, let us give you a few worth mentioning information, not to miss these places:

- The highest peaks of Madeira - Pico Ruivo (1.862 m), Pico das Torres (1.851 m) and Pico do Areeiro (1.818 m).

- Camacha, about 20 minutes driving from Funchal, to appreciate the centre of the Wicker industry, with a large variety of products, in size and shape. A good place to buy some gifts.

- Santana's typical thatched triangular houses, one of the symbols of Madeira. I also recommend a visit to the Madeira Thematic Park, dedicated to the history and culture of Madeira.

Only a short distance from Santana you will find Queimadas, the starting point for one of Madeira´s most spectacular 'levada walks' towards 'Caldeirão Verde' (the green cauldron). Reserve half a day for a walk.

- The various footpaths along more than 200 'levadas' (1400 Km of water irrigation canals) allow healthy walks in the interior of the island and are also a must for nature lovers, that will lead you to the Laurissilva forest, classed as World Natural Heritage by UNESCO.

- The belvedere of Eira do Serrado, which has a magnificent view over Curral das Freiras village, located in a deep valley. A truly fantastic breathtaking scene!

- Cabo Girão, the highest promontory in Europe and the second highest in the world.

- Not far away, the Calheta village's sugar cane mill, one of the three sugar cane mills still working in Madeira. There you are invited to savour the traditional molasses cake (honey cake), accompanied by a 'poncha' (the most famous Madeira's liquor).

- If you have never visited a volcanism centre, you have this opportunity visiting São Vicente´s famous volcanic caves.

- Last but not least, if you still have the time, go to the other populated island of the archipelago - Porto Santo - and spend a whole day there. The maritime connection is made from Funchal port by 'Lobo Marinho' ferry, which makes the journey between the two islands in about two hours and a half.

This island is known for its magnificent 9 km stretch of beach, with fine yellow sand of therapeutic properties.

Madeira's economic activities at present are the tourism, which is the major economic sector, added to the famous Madeira Wine production, the island's colorful flowers and fine traditional handy craft and craft work (embroideries and wicker works).

Therefore, the wine cellars and embroidery factories, at the center of Funchal, are a must.

Cultural and environmental factors have made walking or hiking one of Madeira's most traditional and popular open air activities.

If you like active holidays, very close to the apartment you have a tourist office, offering the opportunity of booking all kind of programs and tours you can choose, such as trekking, climbing, canyoning, Jeep safaris,
