Interaction with guests
Both myself and Maria are available throughout your stay. Maria will meet you on arrival with the keys and pops down to the apartments daily. We are more than happy to share advice and travel tips, on the other hand, if anyone wants a quiet holiday we are just happy to say hi and ask if everything is going well with their stay. We can be involved as much or as little as the guests prefer.

The only problem was it was a bit hilly to get to the apartment. Good restaurants and cafes nearby. Lovely views from the top apartment. The surrounding area. Is being updated and renovated and will be lovely when completed.

About the neighbourhood
The old town is the historic centre of Madeira’s capital Funchal. Its the location for this special and luxurious apartment complex. Within 5 minutes stroll, you’ll find many of the landmarks Madeira is famous for like the Fish and Flower market, the Monte cable car station or Fort São Tiago. One of the old town’s main attraction, besides the charming architecture of the early settlers, is a well known ‘secret’ amongst locals and tourists: There is large variety of excellent restaurants and all of them within easy walking distance of the apartments!
Getting around
Local buses are a great option in Madeira, the number 41 stops out side the apartments. We would be more than happy to give tips. Private taxi or hire cars also remain a popular choice.
