The Penthouse D. João Funchal Sea View is situated in a prime area of the city. Less than five minutes walking you will find bakeries, supermarkets, bank, pharmacy, cafes and various other businesses.

Located 25 km from the airport of Santa Cruz and just 1 km from the main accesses to the city and the center of Funchal, Barreirinha Beach, traditional shops and shopping centers, health services providers and other local attractions such as Mercado dos Lavradores, Cable Car, Fort of St. James, Port Recreativo, Quinta das Cruzes Museum and Promenade that allows to know the entire seafront of the city. Property well served by public transport level, next to the property there are three bus stops from the company Horários dos Funchal that serve more than 3 different bus routes that can take the guests to any part of the city.

Funchal City has numerous attractions such as several museums with exhibitions of various kinds, gardens and viewpoints, churches and religious art, Forte de São Tiago, Funchal harbor and the famous Farmers Market that represents the best of traditional commerce, which is also an attraction! In the old grocery stores where they sell loose spices or where you can drink the famous Poncha of Madeira, which serves as great appetizer a meal in the cozy atmosphere of one of the great restaurants in the old town where you can enjoy a good atmosphere and service, but also, a selection of various meat dishes or fish (always fresh). You can enjoy a unique view over the city of Funchal taking the cable car bound for Monte which is known for its beautiful, lush gardens, but also the famous Church of Monte. From the top of Monte's Church the overlooking the city of Funchal is indescribable! To return to the city center, you can choose to visit the Botanical Garden or release some adrenaline taking the famous "basket of cars" to return to Funchal city center.

There are many options for visiting the island of Madeira, we have car rental or recommend bus tours. The best of Madeira won't be seen through the roads, but, taking the old paths (famous "levadas" of Madeira Island) linking all the villages of Madeira, even the most remote ones. Through them can meet the most beautiful and lush island landscapes, but also meet the famous laurel forest which is classified as World Heritage by Unesco.

Shouldn't miss the visit to other places like Camacha, known by the artisans working the wicker (chairs, basket cars descending from Monte to Funchal, Santana (theme park, famous thatched houses and the knowned Levada of Green Cauldron), Camera Lobos and Caniçal (fishing villages where you can find good restaurants with fresh fish), Eira do Serrado and Curral de Freiras (magnificent views and traditional products based on chestnuts), Calheta and Machico (white sandy beaches), Pico Areeiro and Pico Ruivo ( highest peaks of Madeira), North Island (where you can feel the difference of the various climates will find in Madeira, but also a tour where you will find green landscapes and good restaurants), etc.

Owner's Response: Very nice clients. Manuel and Ilda left the house spotless, cleaned as it was when they did the check-in. Hope to receive then in one of my other houses in Madeira or Algarve.

Pas terrible du tout

  • 1 of 5

Je ne suis pas critique hôtelier et d'habitude je ne met qu'une note et un tout petit mot


- la hotte de cuisine du voisin dégageait sa fumée dans la 2éme sdb, la solution trouvé par notre hôte à été de condamné cette sdb ( donc une sdb utilisable et accessible uniquement depuis une chambre).

- le premier soir nous n'avions pas la clefs d’accès à la résidence, le propriétaire ne nous avait pas informé que le seul accès que nous connaissions était fermé la nuit et avait oublié de nous donné la clef pour l'autre porte.

- chaudière en panne le premier soir ( nous avons passé une très bonne soirée), réparé le lendemain.

- literie très usée

- l'appartement n'as pas été rafraîchît depuis plusieurs décennies et ça se sent

+la terrasse et la vue sont très agréables

je ne vois pas quoi dire de plus a part que nous ne sommes resté que 2 nuits au lieux des 7 réservées
