Situated just 4km outside of Funchal town centre, it is perfectly located for eating out, shopping, and sight seeing. Alternatively, relax by the infinity pool and admire the breath taking views over the Atlantic Ocean and Praia Formosa beach with its walkway to Camara De Lobos.
This modern second floor apartment is fully furnished, bright and airy, and comes with access to a fully equipped gymnasium (refitted in October 2015), jacuzzi, and outdoor pool area. It has its own parking space, lift access, and west facing balconies off both the living room and bedroom, espresso coffee machine, and WiFi internet access. An optional single bed is also available for a child.
Vila Formosa gains its name from the beach below, Praia Formosa, which is the main beach of Funchal. The apartment has steps (many!) down to the beach where you will find three great cafes and open air restaurants and a 2km walkway (on stilts in the sea) to the fishing village of Camara De Lobos (also with great cafes and restaurants).

We are hard working, like most of us! Consequently, we take 'holiday time' very seriously
Natasha Blezard purchased this apartment in 2007
My husband wanted a place with a unbroken view of the sea, especially the sunsets over the Atlantic Ocean. A pool and gym was also important.

We found this amazing appartment having been to Madeira before and would certainly return again. It is close to all the shopping you would require and only a short bus trip away from Funchal. The appartment has stunning views and excellent facilities. Nothing but excellent communications with the owner. If you want a hassle free holiday in a high spec appartment, this is the one for you. A gem on this fantastic island.
This is a lovely one bedroomed apartment on the edge of Funchal.
There is also a separate kitchen and utility room.
We loved sitting on the balconies (there are two) looking at the view of the pool, the beach and the Cabo Girao cliffs.
It's a bit of a steep walk through the complex to the road at the top, but immediately outside there are bus stops to take you to into the centre of Funchal.
Well appointed and equipped apartment with good views ,facilities and close to amenities. The good weather helped . I have no hesitation in recommending this property
We were greeted when we arrived, shown the apartment and provided with all info and keys needed.
The apartment has great sea views and a lovely pool and just a couple of minutes walk to the beach and a lovely
walk into the City Centre. It is very close to shops, bars and restaurants and the Island is stunning. We would definately return and highly recommend Villa Formosa. There is a bus stop right outside and great coffee shop across the road. The people of Madeira are charming.
We were met at the airport by not Manuel (but his nephew), and taken to the Vila Formosa, where Rita showed us in. The Vila was clean with lovely view out to sea and overlooking the pool. We found the information that the owner had sent beforehand very useful, our first trip was to the supermarket which is a good 10/15 min walk - it may have been best to get a taxi back whilst carrying our purchases (wine,beer,gin!) also some food. All other supplies we just nipped up to the row of shops opposite the Vila complex, where buses also ran from.
This was our first trip to Madeira and found the week went very quickly, the situation suited us as quieter than being in Funchal centre, the pool did get busier at weekends, but for a lot of the time we had it to ourselves.
We found an excellent pizza place not far away, turn left out of gates, carry on past round-about, cross road turn left up by the Brazilian steak bar, Papa 2 further up that road - very reasonable they will, if asked, wrap up what you cannot eat bring home for lunch the next day!
You do need to be prepared to do a fair bit of walking, if like us we did not hire a car, but the buses are frequent we did buy a 5 day ticket, which saves Hassel. Our only criticism would be the sofa was not particularly comfortable and the pillows left a bit to be desired, but now I am nit picking! We hope to go again.
The apartment is great! The views are unbeatable! Distance to the old town is 15-20 mins on the bus, buses No1 & No2 run outside the apartment all the time! Apartment was clean and has everything you need for a couple. We were met by Peter, the guy managing the property, he showed us everything we had to know, nice guy! Mark replied to all my emails and answered all my questions. Thanks Mark.
I recommend this apartment for a couple looking to visit Madeira!
Situated just 4km outside of Funchal town centre, it is perfectly located for eating out, shopping, and sightseeing. In about 20 minutes you can walk from the 'Old Town' but close to a taxi rank if you prefer. It is also less than 5 minutes walk from 'Forum Madeira', Funchal’s second largest shopping centre with 86 shops, including restaurants, cafés and snack bars, 6 cinemas (most films in English) and a hypermarket
