This was our third trip to Madeira but only our first time in a rental property...and did we strike it lucky. Although higher up (and therefore cooler) than being on the coast/centre of Funchal, this property is blissfully quiet, has the benefit of a great garden (with stunning views across the city and harbour) and, although a little remote, has everything you need nearby and getting into the city is easy (either by bus or by cablecar).
The property itself is really well maintained throughout, has everything that you could ask for (and more) and, best of all, a fabulous owner who is always on hand if you have any problems, need anything or just want to ask anything.
Sofia's house was simply dream come true. It is located in very well maintained botanical garden, away from any city sounds. You'll be awakened by the bird's songs and nice sun. You can spend the evening with friends around the fireplace with some wine and sit around during the day in the gardens or the levada walks that start just 25m away from your doorstep!
