Great stay in Funchal. Fortress home.

  • 4 of 5

The hill up to the property was very steep and our small car only just made it. However small car was essential to park in the garage. We had everything we needed and had a lovely stay. The view from the bedroom and terrace was outstanding throughout the day and night. Nice quiet area. The Prince Charles cafe/bar is a great stop off on the walk back from Funchal Town,staff really friendly and helpful. A good base to explore explore Funchal on foot and the island by car. Regards Terry and Gill

Fabulous view

  • 5 of 5

The studio apartment was clean, bright and modern. Everything we needed was in the kitchen for cooking, bedroom windows opened up with a view of the bay of Funchal and we had a delightful little terrace to sit out on in the evenings, watching the cruise ships coming in and out of the harbour. It was tricky to find but at least we had the garage beneath to leave the car when it was not in use. The supermarket, restaurants were all close by. But you did need to be fit to walk up the steep hill to the apartment- but worth it!

Séjour à Funchal

  • 5 of 5

L'appartement est conforme à la description du site et est très bien situé à proximité immédiate du centre ville de Funchal.

Il est tout confort, propose des prestations de qualité et dispose d'un garage indispensable en ville.

Les propriétaires sont charmants et ont très compréhensifs lorsque nous avons quitté précipitamment notre logement pour cause de décès familial.

Adresse à recommander.

Appartement neuf super bien situé

  • 5 of 5

Appartement sur les hauteurs de Funchal avec une jolie vue mer. 10 à 15 mn à pied du centre ville et des restaurants. Très pratique car on ne peut se garer en ville. La voiture reste au garage.

Les propriétaires ont répondu présents lorsqu'on a eu besoin d'eux pour préparer notre séjour.

A gem in a perfect location

  • 4 of 5

2 weeks in september 2017

I stayed a few days in the Fortress home where there are two apartments on the first floor, and the rest of my holiday in the small loft-studio (in the same building).

Both apartments were small, but very good. Both very clean with a super bed. The loft-studio has a private balcony with a fabulous view. The apartments have everything you need, and there are plenty of shops (La Vie), cafes and restaurants close by.

A nice small place is the cafe Casa de Chá behind Universo de Memórias. When you come down from the apartment to Rua das Cruzes, take a left turn along the red wall belonging to the Cruzes museum. Straight ahead, you'll find the teahouse. Lovely! Very much worth a visit is Santa Clara convent and Fredrerico de Freitas museum. Also Quinta das Cruzes. All three within minutes from the apartment-

A private garage, but a very steep and narrow road up to the apartment.

The owner was very helpful! Thank you so much for all help!

I have already booked my next holiday in the loft-apartment.
