Funchal, Madeira, Madeira Islands
Located just a few minutes walk from many of Funchal's most popular 'must see places' you are living in the real city not the hotel tourist zone located several miles away from the city centre.

It is the perfect place for relaxing whilst enjoying the annual fireworks shows every Saturday in June and of course spectacular city wide display celebrating the New Year.

Fully furnished for that perfect self catering holiday you can even pick and sample several different exotic fruits (...

Interaction with guests
Depending upon your choice you will either be met at the airport or the property. The apartment is located on the top floor of our own home so I am usually available to answer questions or provide advice as &when required but of course leave this to you to ask.
We provide our guests with a collection of information leaflets maps, bus timetables plus monthly cultural agendas and guide books (Levada walks etc.) to help you make your holiday as enjoyable as possible. This also saves you the weight of having to pack your own guide books unless of course you want to?
I am also often be available to take you by car for short drives or even trips around the island should you want but of course this would be up to you to ask.

A perfect holiday destination for two. Apartment beautifully and well equipped. Host extremely helpful and welcoming. Walking up the steep hill is well worth the effort since the views from the lovely terrace are spectacular. This was our second visit and we look forward to returning again soon.

Management response:

Many thanks for submitting your positive review, we equally were delighted to welcome you back for your second visit and look forward to possibly having you as return guests again sometime in the future. You certainly were ideal guests who equally should get five stars.

Earlier reviews have already stated all positive things with the apartment and with Michael as an excellent host. This is not the place if you want to stay in the hotel area but if you want a touch of the non-tourist Funchal then this is the place for you.

Management response:

Many thanks for submitting your review, it is always reassuring to hear that guests continue to reconfirm the positive points made by previous guests over the past few years. It was a pleasure to have you as guests and we look forward to possibly welcoming you back again one day in the future

A superbly equipped apartment overlooking the town and waterfront of Funchal. A ten minute walk from the centre (uphill - you don't get these views at sea level!), the location has the advantages of being in a peaceful residential suburb but with easy access to the towns great shopping, eating and drinking facilities. If you choose to hire a car...

Management response:

Many thanks for your thoughtful and positive review, you equally were the perfect guests, even cleaning up the apartment before you left and laundered the towels as well!, thank you. Hopefully we will have the chance to welcome you back to Madeira sometime in the future.

Play golf on the beautiful Palheiro (18 hole) or Santo da Serra (27 hole) cours...
