We booked late to spend five days here in January 2017. This is a wonderful place to stay - everything fresh and clean - beautiful view, lovely bedroom with wonderful sunrises, well equipped and Lucio and Claudia really helpful. We've eaten breakfast in sun on terrace each morning - and local restaurants are great. We always look for self-catering places and this is among the best ever. You need a car - we hired in advance at airport and it's been really helpful. This is 5 * self-catering ... we'll return.
Newly renovated, modern and clean apartment, flooded with light, close to Funchal. To reach it best use the pizzeria Teleferico as a landmark. There is a well equipped kitchen and a nice view over the ocean from the bedroom (~200m obove sea level). Very friendly owner, and the herbs in front of the building are a nice touch. Also, a couple of fresh cauliflower waited for us upon arrival which was great. Would return :-)
