Funchal House Rental Photos and Description
Lovely House With 2 Double Bedrooms, 2 Bathrooms, Sleeps 4
“Casa Bela Vista” is situated a short 20 kilometers from Funchal Airport in the quiet elevated area of Alegria, Sao Roque, blessed with magnificent views over the bay. Sao Roque, with its gorgeous vista of the marina and city of Funchal has a cathedral and miradouro (viewing point), bars, restaurants and a mini market.
The best thing about choosing” Casa Bela Vista” is not only its central location, but, it is situated on a regular bus route with a bus stop on your doorstep. The buses run a regular hourly service to and from Funchal Marina (6km) with many convenient stops. Car hire would only be essential if you wanted to explore the more rural area and North side of the Island.

About Julian and Corrina Fourie
Julian, Corrina and Cameron (our son aged 12) moved from Cape Town, South Africa in 2002 to the UK. They found the sun in Madeira shortly after that and have been holidaying in Madeira at least twice a year for the last 8 years.
Why Julian and Corrina Fourie chose Funchal
We had stayed all over the island, north, south east and west but staying centrally in Maderia offered us the best options for our busy, action filled holidays. We love to walk, explore, swim, dive, fish and sail, so Funchal was the obvious choice for a lock up and leave home away from home.
What makes this house unique
The best thing about Casa Bela Vista is the regular hourly bus service. We find we hardly need a car now because the bus takes you right into the hub of Funchal. From there, the Lido, bars, restaurants, shopping, cable car and other buses are right there and are cheap to use. The bus to Monte and the botanical gardens is centrally situated and the cabs offer a great affordable service around Funchal and close environs.
The large supermarket is around 3 km from the house.
