Why Cristina Abreu chose Funchal

Old world charm, the best madeira has to offer: Beautiful properties with reat attention to detail, stylish decoration and comfort. 24h service and help on hand nearby if needed with our property manager. We live close by and would not live in any other part of Madeira or Funchal, the views are breathtaking and its a daily pleasure to enjoy the sea and climate in a peaceful setting with nice gardens around. We love being so close to the restaurants of the old town and popping into the market to buy flowers and fish on foot. The area is warm and safe, unspoilt with stunning old manor houses lining the streets with flower trees. Just in front is a divine tropical garden. Away from the bustle and noise of the touristic areas. We offer information on the best places to go, eat and visit. Enjoy the luxury of the best location, seaviews in your home from home.

What makes this cottage unique

Location, seaviews, friendly neighborhood, warm climate, tranquil...oh dear I could go on and on. The best feature is the proximity to the sea and the old town of Funchal. Its full of authentic character not at all touristy and we enjoy great warm climate year round.

Glorious break in a beautiful property

  • 5 of 5
We required a relaxing break with warm weather and a high standard of accommodation. We got both in abundance! Painter's Cottage is superbly appointed with everything necessary for a peaceful and relaxing break. Ideally placed for exploring both Funchal Old Town and beyond, we made the most of the location with trips out most days and lazy afternoons relaxing by the lovely pool in complete privacy. We used the facilities in the cottage to cook at home; the barbecue is a brilliant addition and allowed us to grill fresh sardines, meat and delicious corn on the cob, all sourced locally! When the rain did occasionally visit we were able to relax in the spacious lounge overlooking the town whilst reading or watching the odd DVD from the ample selection that were provided. If you have one you've been meaning to watch pack it just in case! The views are breathtaking and just eating breakfast on the terrace as the world comes to life is sufficient to put all that is wrong with your world right. We had brilliant service from Christina and family. The cottage was spotless on arrival and cleaned again after a week complete with fresh towels and bedding.

Finally, there is the bathroom. Where else can you lie in the bath whilst the palm trees catch your eye against the blue skies out of the window? Blissful.

We loved it so much we've booked into another cottage for next year. Within a day of our return to the UK.

We cannot recommend this highly enough. Simply perfect.

We loved our stay at painters cottage

  • 5 of 5
We had a lovely and relaxing holiday. We found the cottage even better than the pictures show, the views are just what we dreamed of with the boats entering the port in front. So happy to have stayed in this location as it was so quaint and pretty, owner gave great local suggestions (Barreirinha bar was a real highlight with live music at sunset) and so was being able to walk to all the top restaurants listed on Tripadvisor. Cottage was clean and well decorated, and we had an excellent reception on arrival and communication throughout (Christina is very fast at answering emails). What we enjoyed most was swimming in the pool, having barbecues on our terrace and chilling out on the hammock with a glass of Rosé. Heaven. We will be back.

Lovely view

  • 3 of 5
I think the photos on the website do this cottage justice. Not as good value when compared with other places we've stayed. It would have been useful to know that there are some very steep hills to negotiate when walking back from town, which is a good ten minute walk. The pool wasn't very inviting as it didn't have a shallow end and was well worn at one end which doesn't show in the photos. Be warned, there are many dogs in the area that bark incessantly and throughout the night! Christina had left some provisions in the cottage on our arrival which was very thoughtful.

Owner's Response: I have to say I´m quite surpised with this review as I got an email after you left from Scott saying "Dear Cristina, Just a quick email to say thanks for providing painters Cottage to us last week. We had a relaxing and enjoyable time. Sorry we did not see you to say thanks properly when we left. Regards Scott"
But anyway I am truly sorry you didn´t enjoy your stay as much as most of our guests usually do. We have repeat guests that stay as long as 3 months every year, due to the location (near the heart of the old town, but slightly above which is why it has such nice harbour and sea views), it takes me 5min walking to get to our favourite restaurant gavião Novo in the old town. Back up it is steep but short, luckily a taxi back if you have lots of bags only cost 3.5euro or the bus stop is just a couple of meters away as well if you don´t like walking). I´m sorry about the swimming pool being a bit worn at the bottom in the right hand corner but it was painted last winter (unfortunately the little patch at the bottom near the skimmer was damp and so after the pool was filled in, a couple of month later that patch started to peel). But we will fix this by re-painting the pool again this winter so its perfect again. The pool does not have a shallow end nor do we advertise it as having one, it is about 140cm deep. Dogs in Portugal exist, and this being a residential area without hotels or bars or noisy comercial places does have the odd dog or two around, I live very close by and actually I find them to be fine even though I am sensitive to noise, there is the odd night that one barks but I don´t think there is any place in Madeira that is completely silent and free of dogs (our Jack russels are put to bed every night at 10pm and they are only let out at 9am), this area as it has larger stately houses with gardens and is is one of the most sought after streets in all of Funchal is the most peaceful you can get. I´m glad you liked the Portuguese white wine, flowers from the market, milk, butter, coffee and cheese as Agostinha will be pleased as she did the flower arrangements and made the welcome basket.

Many thanks for a great holiday

  • 5 of 5
We know Madeira well, and have stayed in Funchal Cottages properties before, Painters Cottage was a joy to stay in and did not disappoint, on the contrary it was just what we wanted. The view from the terrace is even prettier than the photos show and we felt very welcomed by Christina. She lent us an ipad when ours did not work and had fresh flowers waiting for us on arrival. The flat was very clean and all in excellent taste. Had a good meal at Armazem do sal and also enjoyed a drink at barerinha café. Our favourite time of day was to enjoy a drink on the terrace of Painters at sunset after a levada walk (me on the hammock). We hope to return one day for sure.

Quaint hideaway

  • 4 of 5
Nestled into the hills is this quaint hideaway...perfect in size for two people. I adored the property owners and felt very well cared for :) The location is fabulous since you can walk to shops and restaurants. The daytime and nighttime views are gorgeous and we appreciated how quiet the cottage was. The price was so reasonable and felt the owners presented the amenities as promised. You won't be disappointed.

Pretty and Cosy

  • 5 of 5
Very happy with our stay at Painters Cottage. Friendly welcome with lots of information such as places to eat, shop, the best bakery and a good recommendation for a walking tour. The house came with a good supply of pantry items as well as wine and local fruits, coal for the barbecue and just the sunny balcony with harbor view we booked. Enjoyed the pool, specially at the end of the day after climbing all over the island it was nice to cool off under the banana trees, other guests at Pool house friendly and we enjoyed a drink together. When the repair works finish down by the seafront Funchal will be less busy, and we plan to return to see the new beach and garden they are building there, staying at our cosy Painters Cottage of course.

Seaside property in Funchal with swimming pool, garden and sea views. Old town 5-10 min walk down the road. The cottage is located in a charming residential area of Funchal, surrounded by traditional houses with lovely gardens, peaceful with great seaviews. Funchal market is just down the road walking distance as is the old town with all the restaurants, cable car and shops. You are in the center of Funchal yet away from the noise and touristic bustle. Bus stop within 15 metres of front door that can take you all over the island and town. This part of Funchal is the best place to stay as its warm & sunny most of the year with mild weather, yet just 15min drive or bus will take you to the lush green mountains where you can walk in the forests or visit many gardens. Just down the road is the marina of Funchal, there is wealth of choice of boat rides for you to see whales & dolphins or for a refreshing swim in Madeira´s warm waters. At night its a very safe place, everyone walks to the restaurants down the road in the old town - ideal for fresh fish & wine. Its a beautiful traditional part of Funchal, with lovely olf houses and gardens, the sea is always in the background and you can enjoy watching the cruise ships arrive and leave just in front. Very friendly area with delcious bakery and cafe you can walk to, the tiny grocer has local fruit and vegetables all full of flavour.

Great base for Levada Walking, hiking, golf, visiting gardens, diving, bird watching and discoving the charm of Madeira

Great restaurants walking distance down the road in the old town.

Golf: Palheiro 5min drive away, Santo da Serra golf 25min away.

Notes:
Best self catering apartment, a favourite with couples and friends wishing an authentic experience in Madeira, in a charming residential area of Funchal by the seaside. Painters Cottage is beautifully decorated and constantly improved with feedback from our guests. There is an delicious local bakery and grocer up the road, the Funchal market is a 5-10min walk down the road and we even provide a trolley to bring your shopping back. A washing machine is available, as well as an iron, ironing board and hair-dryer. We can book tee-times at both golf courses. Property manager nearby offers full support during your stay also giving good tips and advice, so you can enjoy your Madeira experience to the utmost. The climate in this area of Funchal close to the sea is specially mild and sunny, a couple of meters higher up (over the 200m level) the weather can be colder and misty. Great for a short or long stay this is the very best experience Madeira has to offer where you can live like a local
