About Nuno

My name is Nuno and I am renting out an apartment with stunning ocean views in the Portuguese Madeira island.

I'm interested in architecture, design and photography but I also love to travel, tending to prefer beach or city destinations.

If you have any questions about my flat, please feel free to get in touch with me.

Nuno purchased this apartment in 2001

Why Nuno chose Funchal

I knew this apartment was 'THE ONE', since the moment I got inside and watched its' magical view.

The quiet surrounded area and easy access were also a plus.

After visiting this apartment, I've lost any interest I had in any other I had visited before.

It was love at first sight.

What makes this apartment unique

The best view in Madeira!

Extremely comfortable and excellently equipped Holiday Home.

High standard, sunny and bright 2 bedroom Apartment with breathtaking panoramic view over Funchal Bay, amphitheatre and mountains.

Quiet and advantageously located with easy access.

Superb!

  • 5 of 5

My friend and I had a fabulous time in Nuno's apartment, the terrace is beautiful at all times of day and night and the apartment is equipped with everything you'd need. Nuno and Carlotta were very helpful and available if you needed. Recommended!

Our stay was lovely. The property was very clean and generous in size for two couples. The amenities were perfect! Great location for getting around the island as well as getting into Funchal. The view of the city as well as the ocean was outstanding!!!

Definiately the place to stay while on Madeira Island!!!

Amazing hospitality with the best views in Funchal

  • 5 of 5

I don't know whether to start with the views from the incredible balcony, or apartment itself which we were ready to move right into... the apartment is very large, would be perfect for four people, and was more space than we needed for two. It was so well appointed, with every possible appliance you could possibly need. Both the living/dining room and master bedroom open up to the huge, wide balcony. There's a small table, chairs and hammock available to soak in the view. I don't think there could be a better vantage point from which to view Funchal. This is where we spent most of our time. The communication with Nuno was top notch. After booking, he emailed us all sorts of info about the apartment and about Madeira in general, including a PDF of a guidebook. While Nuno is not in Funchal, Carlota, who looks after the place was equally attentive. They were so generous as to have many of the common groceries you would need there for us: bread, butter, milk, jam, coffee, tea, juice. If we come visit Funchal again, we would definitely stay here again.

Wonderful view! Very comfortable flat. Charming host.

  • 5 of 5

Just back from an excellent fortnight in Nuno's flat - despite somewhat cloudy weather so trips round the island were a bit curtailed. No joy in driving through low cloud when you want to enjoy the spectacular views! But the flat was warm and cosy, with fabulous views over Funchal and the harbour. The hammock was a delight on sunny afternoons - the balcony is a real suntrap.

The roads in Funchal are a bit of a challenge, narrow and winding and of course very hilly. But Nuno's instructions were excellent and it was good to be able to park in the driveway and not fear someone clipping the car in the narrow street in front of the house. The neighbours were very helpfu too - only too willing to move cars to enable us to park. And as an alternative route into town, the bus service is very easy - just remember that it takes about 10 to 15 mins for the bus to reach the stop from town as the timetable provided only shows departure times from town and the terminal at the top. The stop is at the end of the road and you then go up to the terminal and turn round immediately for the return journey - which goes through other streets so it is best to do what the locals do and go for the ride. It only adds a few minutes to the journey. The bus stops opposite the indoor market in town and you can pick it up again from the harbour promenade.

The flat was very comfortable with a well equipped kitchen and excellent wifi coverage. The pictures give a good feel for the place.

Nuno and Carlota could not have been more helpful - Carlota even came out to replace the flickering neon light in the kitchen. And a weekly clean was a nice touch.

All in all we thoroughly recommend the flat, Thank you Nuno and Carlota.

Madeira island is beautiful! The apartment is fantastic, nicely decorated and with a breathtaking view over Funchal bay. It´s the best place to see the fireworks on New Year's Eve for sure! ;) The person who received us was very helpful and gave us good tips of things to do and places to visit. We will surely return!

Wonderful place to stay! Couldn't be any better!

  • 5 of 5

We stayed for a week and loved every minute! The apartment was very easy to find from the airport and only 20 minutes away. When we arrived Carlos was there to meet us and was really thorough, kind and helpful. The apartment 's position is perfect, overlooking the town and with fantastic sea views from the large balcony.; I spent many an hour watching the cruise ships come and go!

There is a parking spot right outside the apartment, which is great, and the neighbourhood is very quiet. Inside it is extremely spacious and well equipped, everything you could need for an enjoyable holiday. The lounge area overlooks the sea and has two, large and comfortable sofas; there is also a dining table and a cupboard full of useful stuff! We both rely on wifi and the provision was excellent; we had a fast connection and were able to do everything we needed to do.

The beds are very comfy and there is plenty of spare linen etc; the bathroom is also large and well equipped. In the kitchen there is a washing machine and dishwasher, also everything else you could expect in a kitchen!

The local bus service runs right at the end of the avenue and is very regular; take some Valium though, as it's a steep ride down into the town!

I would really recommend this place and shall definitely return! Five star! 😀😀😀

Extremely comfortable and excellently equipped Holiday Home.

High standard, sunny and bright 2 bedroom Apartment with breathtaking panoramic view over Funchal Bay, amphitheatre and mountains.

Quiet and advantageously located with easy access.

FUNCHAL

Situated in a bay bathed by the Atlantic Ocean, on the south coast of the island of Madeira, Funchal is the capital of Madeira.

This town that dates back some 500 years, since 21st August 1508, owes its name to a sweet-smelling wild herb, the “Foeniculum Vulgare” traditionally known as fennel [funcho], which existed in abundance at the time of its settlement.

Funchal is the largest tourist, cultural and commercial center of the archipelago of Madeira. This city offers a wide range of leisure activities, from visits to museums, monuments and other landmarks, to walks in its beautiful gardens, walks along the Marina of Funchal full of boats, shopping and going out at night to bars and nightclubs.

In the form of an amphitheater, the Municipality of Funchal stretches along a hillside that goes from sea level to the Pico de Areeiro, at 1.818m altitude.

GOLF INFORMATION:

PALHEIRO GOLF

This 18 hole, 6000 metre plus course was designed in 1993 by Cabel Robinson, and is skillfully set within the gracious parkland of the Quinta de Palheiro Ferreiro. Remarkable for tight fairways, fast greens, and judicious use of the beautiful trees that once covered the hillside, the course is a worthy challenge for all handicap levels.

Palheiro Golf is situated some 10 km east of Funchal with magnificent views overlooking the town and bay.

SANTO DA SERRA GOLF

Its original course, built in 1937, was redesigned in 1991 by the famous golf architect Robert Trent Jones who created a completely new and spectacular 27 hole golf course in one of the most beautiful landscapes that nature may offer.

Santo da Serra Golf is 20 minutes away from Funchal centre and 5 minutes away from the airport.
