Overview

Funchal House Rental Photos and Description

3 Bed, 2 bath, sleeps 5 (+ infant) in Funchal, below famous Monte toboggan run!

Tucked away in a well-tended, old fashioned garden full of exotic flowers, creepers, shrubs and fruit trees this house with unheated pool sleeps 5 guests in comfort. Downstairs the spacious living room, with open fireplace for log fires on winter evenings, has French windows opening on to the garden which has chairs, tables, sunbeds and parasols. The large, well-equipped kitchen with pretty integral dining area has a separate laundry room beyond. The second bathroom is near the stairs which lead to the 3 bedrooms upstairs (1 double, 1 twin & 1 single) and the main bathroom. Cheerful maid service (+ baby sitting) is provided by Ciseltina. Owner Joy, a Madeira resident for 31 years, offers this villa and neighbouring Quinta d'Alegria (each with total privacy) to those wanting quiet surroundings, stunning views over the bay of Funchal and a perfect location at the foot of the famous Monte toboggan run. You can book them together if you need 6 bedrooms - both are longstanding favourites!

MORE ABOUT CASA BELFLORES: Casa Belflores is a perfect base from which to discover the interesting and busy little city of Funchal (a 10 minute ride on the local bus or 25 minutes' steep walk downhill), and of course you can go further afield to explore the spectacular mountain scenery of inland Madeira; either by foot along the 'levadas' or by car. From both the house and garden there are splendid panoramic views of the whole bay of Funchal, to the harbour and way out to sea. There are spacious terraces in the garden and around the pool for enjoying the sun, although should you prefer, plenty of shade from the old avocado pear trees. The house, which has been carefully restored to a high standard, retains many of its original features including exposed stone work walls, timbered ceilings and quaint interior window shutters and is now furnished with good quality furniture and fabrics in keeping with the character of the house. It is south and west facing and therefore reaps the maximum benefit of the sunshine.

THE POOL is located in the upper garden of the house in a very sheltered and private location with superb views - a real sun-trap because the white garden walls reflect the sun all around the area. The pool is surrounded by an extensive patio bordered by the luxuriant foliage of silver banana trees and is for the sole use of our guests. Garden furniture, sunbeds and parasols are provided.

IN THE NEIGHBOURHOOD: Within a short walk there are two small corner shops suitable for basic supplies, and fresh bread. There is a pharmacy less than ten minutes walk away and also three good local restaurants. In the town you will find a beautiful, traditional fruit and vegetable market, many well stocked supermarkets and several health food stores.

Wonderfull experience

  • 5 of 5
We visit Madeira in october 2009 for the first time. We searched on internet for a nice property to rent. We found Casa Belflores. We looked at the pictures and the description and we ''were solved" (a dutch expression).
We booked the house and the service we expercienced directly after the booking was great. The car hire advice and following arrangements for instance but especially the dinner proposal for the arrival day. When we finally arrived, we call the owner at the airport that we are on our way. She welcomed us warmly at the gate and had made a superb three course dinner for us. During our stay she was always at the background to contact.The house is cosy and very clean. Three times a week clean towels for example. Special towels for the swimmingpool which was situated on the upper terrace with a spectacular view on the ocean. A nice,warm and friendly restaurant at four minutes walk with very good food. But dinner at Casa Bellflores made by the owner Joy is highly recommended by us. Delicious!!
We enjoyed our stay very much. A lovely Island and rough at the same time. A beautifull house with much privacy, a wonderfull garden, swimming almost under the bananatrees etc. Very nice weather, during our stay 25 till 29 degrees. Spectaculair roads and views.
We think about visiting the other Island Porto Santo some day and then we certainly will contact Mrs Judith for advice.

Owner's Response: Casa Belflores attracts visitors from many different countries and we welcome our first review from Holland. And a great one too! Many thanks.
You obviously had a wonderful holiday and enjoyed not just Casa Belflores (and Joy's cooking!) but also your trips by car to explore this beautiful island, much of which is unspoilt and without pollution.
We look forward to your return and, as it happens, Joy has a lovely house on Porto Santo which can be rented for holiday use. Best wishes, Judith (booking agent)

Excellent

  • 5 of 5
Beautiful house, in a lovely area, right on the road with the no 19 bus to take you down into Funchal
Lovely garden and very hospitable welcome from Joy the owner, who is also an excellent cook.
We were well looked after and were made to feel at home. Excellent views of the harbor from the window, and the house is at the bottom of the toboggan run so you can see and hear the toboggans in action!
Would highly recommend this house. Fantastic bakery nearby for fresh warm bread in the morning but be aware no other shops within walking distance.

Owner's Response: Many thanks for taking the time and trouble to comment on your stay both online and in our well thumbed visitors book. I am so pleased you enjoyed your return visit to Madeira and that you felt comfortable and at home at Casa Belflores, we are pleased that you liked this little piece of traditional Madeira, set in it’s old fashioned sub-tropical garden with it’s lovely sea views. You’re right the 19 bus provides great mobility for any visitors who don’t wish to drive and it only takes 7 or 8 minutes to get to or from town with it’s shops and fabulous market. We hope to see you again one day, and best of luck with the remainder of your stay in Lisbon.

Well appointed, ideal position, good value.

  • 4 of 5
Casa Belflores is a well maintained character villa with all mod cons and lovely 180 degree view over the harbour. Convenient for Funchal - 20 minute downhill walk - although be prepared for it to take a bit longer to walk back! Villa has easy access to road network which is extremely good considering the size of the island. On the downside the property and in particular the pool is adjacent to the end of the toboggan run which means it is extremely noisy from 10 until 6 with; loading of the toboggans, parking / reversing coaches and lorries, and the very loud voices of the crews, consequently we didn't feel comfortable relaxing by the pool. Nevertheless, we had a very enjoyable week exploring all four corners of the garden Island savouring much of what it has to offer.

Owner's Response: Thank you for taking your time to post a review about your recent holiday at Casa Belflores and we’re pleased you enjoyed your stay and discovered all the wonderful places that this beautiful Island has to offer.
We were sorry that you were sensitive to the hustle and bustle of the toboggans and their crew, this very typical and fascinating mode of transport is still used to delight visitors to the Island and those visiting the Island by cruise often begin their day by skimming down the steep hill from Monte, the week you were on the Island was the peak week of the cruising season and so this was an unusually busy time for them. I agree that the Latins can be rather boisterous and vocal with their speech, but this is very much the local life and colour of the place and forms part of the Madeirean character , we are sorry that you felt it impacted on your stay

Relaxing stay in a nice area of Funchal

  • 5 of 5
We thoroughly enjoyed staying in this well kept property which is located in a pleasing residential area of Funchal surrounded by a mix of old and newer villas and gardens. We enjoyed a super meal that was cooked for us by Christina on the first evening. Parking the hire car was never a problem. We enjoyed the peaceful location away from the hotel strip, and watched the cruise liners coming and going and the panoramic views over Funchal. Due to the steep roads everywhere in Funchal, I would say a car hire is essential, as if you want to get anywhere on public transport, you need to get into the centre first.

Wonderful!

  • 5 of 5
We had the best holiday at Casa Belfores! It exceeded all my expectations! Joy, the owner gave us the warmest welcome and provided the most delicious supper on our first night which we requested as we were in on a late flight. A brilliant service and such a lovely personal touch this saved us from having to find a restaurant when we hadnt quite got our bearings. The house is original, rustic, charming and spacious for two people. It is extremely well equipped and everything was beautifully clean and well maintained throughout our stay. The views from the house are absolutely stunning. As we were without a car we took advantage of the taxi service offered to the local supermarket on our first daywhich was really helpful. The local bus service stops almost outside the house and is very good. There is a local bakery, pharmacy and 4 restaurants within walking distance. We very much appreciated all the little touches such as the welcome basket, maderia wine in a beautiful decanter, showergel and handwash in the bathrooms etc. A few points which are not a moan at all....but I think the sunbeds are getting a little old, the backs seemed to collapse quite frequently (mind your hands!) and the tred on the stairs is quite steep so maybe not good for the less mobile or small children. All in all, we had a wonderful, relaxing stay in the most beautiful home. A dream of a holiday. Thank you Joy, we will be back!

Owner's Response: Thank you for one of the most appreciative and informative reviews to date. It has totally made my day!
Your mention of the tired sunbeds is appropriate and, at the end of such a busy year, I have a few items that need attention and sun beds will definitely be included in the shopping list. Your mention of the steep steps is also much appreciated as a caution to future guests. In all our advertising we mention the unsuitability of Casa Belflores for the less mobile and young children (for this reason) and it’s good to have it reinforced.
I am delighted that your first visit to Madeira and to Casa Belflores proved to be such a huge success. Haste ye back!
Kind regards to you both, Joy

First time to Madeira

  • 5 of 5
Description of property and facilities spot-on. A lovely Madeiran stone built house set in a delightful garden with fantastic views of Funchal. The villa is situated overlooking the end of the famous toboggan run.
There are 3 good restaurants and a bakery within walking distance. Surrounding roads are quite steep and a car would be of benefit but is not essential.
The villa was very clean and well maintained and the views from all the bedrooms are stunning.
The reception we received was excellent and included a decanter of madeira and a pot of home-made strawberry jam.
The friendly owner lives next door and was on hand for any information and advice.
I would strongly recommend this villa.

Madeira’s charming capital town of Funchal, with its 140,000 inhabitants, sits in a large bowl that rises from a natural deep-water harbour on the south of this sub tropical island to an impressive backdrop of high mountains. It is the island’s centre of activity, with something for everyone: an opera house/theatre, chic shops, street stalls, open market, wine lodges, museums, city parks, bars, cafés and restaurants without number, multi-screen cinema, a Roman Catholic cathedral dating back to the 14th century and an English Anglican Church built in 1822. This beautiful island is famous for its tropical gardens, two championship golf courses, truly wonderful mountain and coastal walking, ocean swimming, sailing, game fishing, etc. and, above all, its friendly Portuguese inhabitants. Verdant and with varied and stunning scenery, it is definitely worth exploring and the new network of roads and tunnels make this so easy now.

Other Activities: famous tropical gardens and of course Funchal, full of history and charm, is on your doorstep.

Golf: Golfers will find two superb golf courses within easy reach - the 18-hole championship Palheiro golf course and the 27-hole Santa da Serra golf course, both with spectacular views.
