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.

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.

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.

We stayed at the Painters cottage during 10 days at the end of october. We felt very welcome upon arrival, the host had even arranged with a chilled bottle of wine, coffee and fresh bread. The host also turned out to be a real professional when it came to giving useful tips for our stay. The charming apartment has a spectacular view from the terrace, where you can see Funchal and the harbor. Everything felt fresh and halfway into our stay we were even offered a light cleaning and a fresh set of towels and bed linen. Downstairs we could access the nice pool area, nicely surrounded by a lot of trees, plants and flowers. All the rooms have windows towards the pool- and garden area, so we had a feeling of full discretion. Over all, the cottage has a homey atmosphere that made us feel very well, even for those rainy days when we stayed inside a little bit longer. All facilities that you might need were there, coffee machine, toaster, oven, microwave oven and so on. And with a good bakery nearby. Thank you Cristina for a great stay, we would like to come back very soon! Anja and Benjamin

PERFECT MADEIRA VIEWS

  • 5 of 5
Very fortunate to have booked Painters Cottage, it really does have beautiful views from the terrace of the sea and harbor. It had everything we needed and more (surprised to see they had BBC1, ITV & lots of english channels as well as good strong internet), we had fresh flower and some chilled white wine waiting for us, that was very special. The owner was friendly and on call when we needed things but left us to enjoy our privacy as well. Cottage is really sweet with nice painting and prints on the walls, great fabrics and patterns which was more than you expect from a self catering property, all in all the house was well kept, peaceful and we felt right at home. The pool seems to get sun most of the day and we liked cooling off with a dive there after a walk in the hills. If you come to madeira we would def recommend staying here in the Painters and specially in this part of town.

NOT QUITE THE HOLIDAY WE HAD PLANNED!

  • 4 of 5
Painter's Cottage provides enchanting accommodation ideal for enjoying Madeira. It is in an excellent location near to the old town and its many restaurants. The cottage has a spectacular view across town and on to the harbour. The bedroom is a good size with a very comfortable bed and pillows. The bathroom could do with a little refreshing and the shower though excellent doesn't have a shower screen or curtain. The balcony is beautiful with excellent views and a barbeque and also has a comfortable hammock for the afternoon siesta. The kitchen has most things you need but no oven; Cristina (the owner) ensures that some essentials stock the cupboard to ease your stay.

Madeiran weather is neither too hot nor too cold and air conditioning isn't really essential however we did have a few mosquitoes and were planning to get an over-bed mosquito net the next day. We had also planned to ask that the pool cleaning and filtration unit was back up and running but first thing on the following morning we were disturbed by a gang of workman who had unexpectedly turned up to re-roof the owners house following some recent storm damage. Clearly this situation was quite inconvenient for our holiday week so Cristina quickly rearranged our stay to another apartment hotel at the other end of town: it wasn't quite what we had planned but rescued a weeks holiday.

Having spent so little time in Painter's Cottage this rather feels like an unfinished holiday but we may look to book again next year.

Owner's Response: Thank you for your review, and for your wonderful attitude. The week before these guests arrived Funchal had 2 days of freak intensive rain, and this caused some of the roof in front of the Painters Cottage to collapse, and before the winter arrived we were told it was not an option, the roof had to be re-tiled that week. I´m glad to say it was finished last week, with their cooperation. When we saw that building work would disturb their holiday, I immediately made a few calls to get a nice sea-front apartment with breakfast, to try and make this change into an upgrade. My family stayed there and enjoyed their holiday so I thought it would be the nicest option, I´m very happy they considered this rescued their holiday, as it was my biggest concern. I´m glad to say that Painters Cottage has a lovely new curtain for the bath, and that the battery in the pool was replaced (this was why it had not worked over the weekend). The mosquito season should be coming to an end now, as they are all over Funchal, but with some repellent and the help of an electric racket they should not bother you. It was certainly not a normal Painters Cottage holiday these guests enjoyed, but the important thing was that their holiday was a success, which was our focus.

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
