Two bedroom apartment situated in Funchal, at Formosa beach, with an amazing view to the Atlantic Ocean and direct access to the beach.

From the balcony you have view over the sea, pool and gardens and sunshine all afternoon until the sunset just in front.

The best of everything! A get away from it all beachside apartment with Funchal on the side!
We had an amazing holiday, due mainly to the property and it's location. The owner Niara has arranged everything so thoughtfully-the accommodation is perfect, from all the kitchen essentials and more,to the comfortable living space and the spacious balcony taking in the incredible views.The private apartment is in an aparthotel,with a swimming pool and plenty of sun loungers-not crowded,very clean,a lovely space.There is a gate down onto the gently shelving beach Praia Formosa,a mix of black sand and large pebbles and has to be one of the cleanest beaches I've come across!There are cafes/restaurants along the beach to the right-the promenade is rocky to begin with-and also through the tunnel (more like a grotto, a little wet but clean and it closes around 11pm) where the promenade is more extensive and makes for a pretty evening walk too.The lido, doca do cavacas, is brilliant,excellent value for money (2€ each!) and has the loveliest of seawater pools. For shops,there is a bakery and greengrocers up on the road (out of the hotel entrance, past the bar,up the steps to the right and across the road-about 8mins walk) The large Pingo Doce supermarket is in the excellent Forum shopping centre, about 15-20 minutes walk but taxis are easily available.There is a regular bus service, the easiest being the No.2 which takes you right through the centre (bus stop 5mins through the tunnel,up the steps and on the right- €1.95 a trip or buy giro card €0.50 from tobacconists/pay shop and top up at €1.35 a trip) and brings you back either near the tunnel or further along up the road. How to spend your days..we walked to the centre for sightseeing (took about 80mins) but also took the bus to get to the Painted Doors in Zona Velha; cable car up to Monte,tropical gardens and toboggan down; walk to Camara dos Lobos (40 mins along the beach, but you can get a bus) then a tour bus up to Cabo Girao for the skywalk; and the absolute best...a jeep tour with Miguel!! Amazing day out-arrange through Niara once you book the accommodation- that avoids the crowds but still finds the best views and the most authentic of experiences (Facebook-Miguel Laginha,Funchal). We could have done much more,walks and tours, but the opportunity to just sit on the beach or swim in the pool and sea and just chill was too much to ignore!! Best nearby restaurants-The Beer Garden and Espettus.Thoroughly recommend this holiday,thank you Niara and Miguel-we love Madeira❤️
A lovely large apartment in a lovely location
We had a lovely stay in this large and well-kept apartment. We enjoyed the pool and the beach as well as many local restaurants. The owners were welcoming and recommended lots of activities and restaurants. We stayed with a large group of friends and were all accommodated within the same block in apartments from the same owner, and we all had an excellent time. I would highly recommend
Thank you very much! You will all always welcome here! I'm already looking much forward to meet you again next year!
Lovely apartment by the sea.
This was our second time in this area and we just love the location, in easy reach of Funchal but peaceful and away from it all . The apartment was spotlessly clean and very comfortable with everything needed for a self catering holiday. The star has to be the wonderful balcony, double sized and facing right on to the sea with beautiful views of the Cabo Girao. Go to sleep and wake up to the sound of the waves. Niara was a fantastic host and gave us a very warm welcome . She was always on hand if needed and very helpful with lots of knowledge about Funchal and Madeira. I definitely hope to back.
I'm happy you have enjoyed my apartment for your 2nd staq in Madeira island! Thank you very much for your review and I really hope to meet you again soon!
We simply loved it there!
We spent 3,5 weeks in Madeira and Niara’s apartment from couple days before Christmas to mid January. The weather was warm and sunny. There was some raining only during three days.
The apartment is lovely! Large living room-dining room-kitchen combination. Big master bedroom with master bathroom and nearby second bathroom. It was handy that both of us had an own bathroom and there was enough hot water with high pressure. Second bedroom was nice place to keep our out-door staff. The kitchen was spacious and there were good basic equipment. We were happy to have a washing machine, an iron and a hair dryer. As Finns we appreciated also the warmth of the apartment even local winter time.
The very best thing in the apartment was the sea view. From living room and master bed room there are large windows to balcony and to the sea. It’s only 20 meters to the sea and you can hear the waves and it’s wonderful. There are also palm trees, garden with blooming flowers, mountain view, pool and beach exit. Picture perfect holiday view
The balcony was our favorite place to be. There are a dining set, a hanging chair and two sun beds; very comfortable combination. There are also plants in the balcony, which made us feel cozy.
During Christmas time Funchal is full of Christmas lights, Christmas flowers and nativity scenes. It’s absolutely beautiful. And the New Years fireworks are amazing.
Internet connection was surprisingly fast and it was possible to work from the balcony. We had a car rented full time and from the apartment it is easy to drive to all directions. Parking place is next to the building.
Our landlady Niara was lovely, friendly, helpful and quick in all things. It was easy and pleasant to deal with her.
We warmly recommend this apartment and we’d love to come again!
Thank you very much for such kind words! I really appreciated it! I'm very happy you had a great time in my apartment! In fact the winter in Madeira island is very smooth and we can have warm and sunny days all over the year. I'm really looking much forward to meet you again soon!
Just back from a great holiday. Niara couldn't have been more welcoming and helpful during the booking process and our stay. Apartment in great location with amazing views and sunsets. With lots of excellent restaurants within walking distance.
We had the most brilliant day tour with Niara's husband Miguel in his amazing old jeep such a fun way to see the beautiful island of Maderia so pleased we booked before arriving.
Hope to return again very soon.
Thank you very much for your kind words! I'm happy you have enjoyed your holiday so much! We hope to see you here again soon!
Excellent view and everything you need
We've really enjoyed our stay. Having come on holiday for some R & R, that's exactly what we've got! The apartment is lovely and spacious and we've spent many hours lazing around, on the many chairs, sofas and beds. We were treated to some unseasonably impressive waves yesterday (passing hurricane Ophelia) crashing on the cliffs.
Niara, who looks after the guests, was very welcoming and more than helpful with suggestions for food, shopping and buses.
We went on a fabulous Half day jeep tour with Miguel and had wished we had booked for the first day of our holiday, as he gave us a much better sense of Madeira and its possibilities. If you are going, please do book in advance with Niara.
The walk to Camara Du Lobos is lovely and dinner at the blue and white restaurant ,5 mins along the prom in the other direction, was delicious.
Thank you very much for your review! I'm happy you have enjoyed your stay so much! In fact the terrace and its furniture can be used all year round as it is a very pleasant area, very protected (even to see the waves crushing on the shore!)
I'm also glad you have enjoyed the tips I gave you, specially the jeep tour with my husband Miguel.
I hope to see you again soon! All the best for you!
If you would like to explore Madeira island and if you are looking for a informal, cultural, relaxed and real way to explore this island paradise... for me the best choice is doing it with my husband Miguel, in his UMM open classic jeep (convertible)... 27 years old… so no air conditioned, automatic windows or doors (nothing automatic!)… and its noisy but loads of fun, trough the old paths!
