Pleasant cottage surrounded by banana trees in quiet location but just 20 mins walk from central Funchal
Quiet and blissful.....
We enjoy the quiet and privacy of Loja de Lena and have stayed there several times. It is set in a beautiful plantation near to the main manor house. 25 min walk into the centre of Funchal or a few minutes by bus. About a 10 minute walk from the unmissable Reid's Hotel ! There is a lovely swimming pool/ sitting area. The property is well equipped, comfortable and attractive. The king sized bed is firm and very comfortable. There are two other gite type properties adjoining. We have always found our neighbours to be quiet and courteous. The owners live in the main house and are warm and helpful. So if you want a quiet relaxing environment in beautiful grounds and within walking distance of Funchal old town and plenty of good eateries........
It is always a pleasure to have returning guests. Thank you very much for your comments. Very much appreciated.
Superb environment set in beautiful grounds
We stayed for most of May at Loja da Lenha. . Until this year we have stayed at a good Hotel but decided to try somewhere else. It was brilliant. Well equipped, comfortable, spotless and with firm mattresses on the beds. Frank and Buffy are very welcoming. The location is ideal - one really can walk into Funchal and it is near the Ferry Terminal for Porto Santo Island ( a great place to visit), Reids Palace Hotel ( fantastic for afternoon tea) and a range of grocery/coffee shops. All the couples we met seemed like us to like peace and quiet. The pool is very good and I swam most days. If one wants to go to Church - Penha de Franca RC Church ( 20 minute walk) has a service every Sunday at 10.30 in English and its full. The priest is remarkable and welcomes all religions ( we are Methodists). We think it was a super experience and quite a 'find' - Surrey UK couple.
We are delighted that you enjoyed your stay and we also think we are "quite a find"! Some of our guests consider us an oasis in the middle of Funchal. We enjoyed meeting you and look forward to welcoming you back again.
A Special Place
A little bit of old Funchal within easy reach of the town centre and close to restaurants and bars.
We loved Loja da Lenha and are recommending it to our friends. The accommodation is extremely well appointed, very comfortable, and it’s on a banana farm --- perfect.
Thank you for taking the time to write a review.
We are indeed privileged by our position, being within walking distance of most town facilities and yet sheltered amongst bananas and vines.
We would be delighted to have you back.

We have just returned from a wonderful holiday on the lovely island of Madeira. Our accommodation at Loja Da Lenha more than met our expectations. It is of very high standard furnished very tastefully and well maintained, everything you would need. The setting is very tranquil surrounded by banana trees and vines, a lovely swimming pool and very friendly and helpful owners.
The properties are centrally situated in Funchal with shops and good restaurants within a short walk.
We are delighted that you enjoyed Madeira so much and hope to be able to welcome you back again soon
Stay at loja da lehna
This is a fantastic place to stay, truly 5 star!
Buffy welcomed us for our one week stay with fresh fruit and Madeira wine and a quick tour of this beautiful apartment.
The apartment is spacious, very clean and well appointed the kitchen has all mod-cons with plenty of space to eat.
We were impressed with the peace and quiet, the secure parking and the super pool.
We will definitely visit again.
PS. be prepared for mosquitoes in the evening
P&F from Cornwall
We are delighted that you so enjoyed your stay and look forward to seeing you back again.
The pool is 12m x 6m and so you can have a good swim in it. It is currently surrounded by vines with grapes nearing picking time, which we feel gives it an added atmosphere
Mosquitos, we are unable to control! They are part of life on this sub-tropical island. We do have mosquito netting on all the windows. It is important that these are closed at night before switching on the lights which attract the mosquitos.
