If you want to stay somewhere quiet, away from Fuchal's hotel zone, then look no further. Nora Bay is a modern apartment with excellent facilities and contemporary furnishings. It's only 5 minutes walk from the nearest supermarket and 10 minutes walk from a street of local, very good restaurants. The owners will arrange airport transfers and provide you with a splendid welcome pack, so there's enough for your first meal in the fridge when you arrive!
Really great place to stay, clean tidy and everything you would need for a stay, almost a home away from home. When we turned up at our hire car, Henrique met us in no time and we drove to Nora Bay in convoy. He then showed us to the parking space and then showed us around. They had even stocked up on some essentials too. Of course the other great thing about the place is that it's no more than a 10-15 minute walk to anything you might need in Funchal, so unless you wanted to go further afield then you can happily keep the car where it is.
Although I never used it, it does have a pool with loungers around it if that's your bag. At the end of the day there was nothing nicer than to sit out on the balcony with a beer as the day cools down. All in all it was a really nice place to stay for the week.
Very well located close to centre but quiet and peaceful. Apartment was beautiful and had every convenience . We experienced unusually cold weather and an extra blanket would have been useful and was immediately provide by Helene. The welcome pack of food was appreciated
Close to market and many good restaurants
For me the best apartment until now. If they tell me it was so amazing good i didn't beliave. Brand new and in great shape apartment with amazing furniture and bright. This is the best part of the city at 5 minutes walk to the Barreirinha Beach and to dive the atlantic ocean or to dinner to Santa Maria street at night drink an Poncha.
This is a well appointed and well equipped apartment perfectly placed to enjoy everything that Funchal has to offer. The apartment is spacious and beautifully furnished. Wifi is excellent and the reserved parking perfect for your hire car on an island where parking is at a premium. We'd recommend a hire car to see the best of the island, the bus system and tour buses are good but only to a point. The apartment is close to Santa Maria street where there is a wealth of restaurants to choose from, our favorite was Mozart but there is plenty of choice within a 10 minute stroll. We'd recommend the apartment and will visit again but remember that Funchal is the dog barking capital of the world so be prepared!
