POOL-SLEEPS 6-WALK 10 MIN CENTRE-WATCH CRUISE SHIPS PASSING!-FREE NET PARKING!

Funchal Apartment Rental Photos and Description

FREE private parking, Apartment large,Gardens, POOL, 2 bathrooms

Spacious apartment so close to the City Centre but, peaceful. There's much to do and see whether its SWIMMING visiting the ART DECO FOOD MARKET & the attractive historical ZONA VELHA where Christopher Columbus used to wander or DOLPHIN WATCHING or LEVADA WALKING!

The apartment with POOL & GARDEN is bright with natural sunlight SLEEPS 6 - 2 large double bedrooms, 1 twin bedroom - 2 bathrooms - large open plan lounge/dining area with LARGE BALCONY has PANORAMIC OCEAN & MOUNTAIN VIEWS. A First floor apartment easy to access by foot and LIFT from the covered basement car park with security.

The MASTER BEDROOM with EN-SUITE bathroom has a balcony with views of CRUISE SHIPS, the port, the swimming pool & the gardens with sub-tropical plants.Bedrooms 2 & 3 have mountain views. Bedroom 2 has a BALCONY too. Spacious kitchen well equipped.

After a day of activity refresh and relax on your apartment's balconies or on the sun loungers in the gardens next to pool!

NO NEED TO HIRE A CAR!: If you do not want the hassle of driving and parking on your holiday this apartment could be your answer. It’s 10 minutes from shopping centres such as ‘Anadia’ and the Zona Velha packed with restaurants, bars even with Fado performances. If you do not walk all the time, the public transport including cable-cars from the bottom of the hill where the apartment is up to Monte is excellent and reasonably priced. The taxi fares in the city are reasonable too. And to come back down from Monte you might consider the world famous toboggan ride!

AIRPORT TRANSFERS: We can arrange airport transfers with recommended drivers only.

PUBLIC AIRPORT BUS: to come to the apartment from the airport and return there is a public airport bus which again is reasonably priced.

FUNCHAL SO MUCH TO SEE & DO!: Some recommendations: whale and dolphin watching, land and boat fishing, swimming in the ocean and indeed with dolphins, levada (irrigation channel walking), pamper yourself in a spa, visit the world famous Jardim Botanico and BERARDO Gardens in Monte.

ONNISTUNUT LOMA

  • 4 of 5
Huoneisto ja varustustaso vastasi hyvin kuvausta. Siisti. Hyvä sijainti, rauhallinen ympäristö. Ei tarvitse autoa kaupungilla liikkumiseen, tosin step testi mennen tullen. Paljon nähtävää kävelyetäisyydellä. Hyvä hinta-laatu suhde. Ystävällinen ja palvelualtis vastaanotto, neuvoja loman aikanakin. Jouluvalot ja -koristelut näkemisen arvoiset, ilmassa joulun taikaa.

'TERRIFIC APARTMENT'

'terrific apartment'
  • 5 of 5
Thank you for all your kind help in arranging taxis for transfers to and from the airport. Quick, easy and punctual. For the welcome pack on arrival. Iva, thanks for showing us around the apartment with clear instructions and being on hand
if we needed you and Paul thank you for your 'orange alert rain' text! Despite the rain (and lots of it) we had a super week recharging our batteries! Loved the apartment; a treat to have individual bedrooms and bathrooms and all sparkling clean. We had absolutely everything we needed and enjoyed eating in a couple of nights. The dual aspect views of the lights on the hillside at night were magical in the evenings. I had been to Madeira before but didn't have the view - what a treat this time! It was definitely worth the pull up the hill! At least it was a very short hill and kept us fit! We certainly didn't need a taxi! We couldn't use the pool as we had a week of perpetual torrential rain (we didn't mind as it was so warm, just went out with our umbrellas) but we wanted to as it was clean, peaceful and quiet. Location was great; 5/10 walking minutes from buses, taxis, the cable car, supermarket and the seafront. What did we like about the apartment? Everything! It was 'home from home' being spacious and comfortable.
As for Madeira itself I can see why people return. It is a genteel island where you really can relax and unwind. Funchal has a nice buzz going on and there are interesting places to seek out in the town. We enjoyed walking along the coast to the fishing village pausing for coffee along the way. We hopped on a bus to return and it made a great day out. A car is not needed and we explored for hours on foot. Transport is cheap and the tours round the island are a must for first time holidaymakers in order to appreciate the scenery and the flowers. Eating out was inexpensive and a pleasure. All in all it was a memorable week and thank you both for a great welcome.

LOVELY APARTMENT - EXACTLY AS DESCRIBED ON WEBSITE

  • 5 of 5
Thank you Paul & Iva for arranging our taxi from the airport to get us to the apartment and for all information provided by yourselves which made it easier for us to know where everywhere was and how to get there !
The apartment was really spacious and well equipped with lovely views of the harbour from the balcony. The apartment is in a nice quiet residential area - some days we had the whole of the pool area to ourselves !
The apartment is in an ideal location near to the harbour, some nice bars and restaurants and also our local Pingo supermarket.
All in all, a great place to stay which we would recommend to anyone travelling to Funchal despite our daily hill climb !!

GREAT PLACE TO STAY!!!

  • 5 of 5
We have been to Funchal many times, but this was the best place we have stayed in. It was very large and well appointed with all the things you could need for a comfortable stay.
The location was perfect, near the old town (and the Pingo!) and just a bit further to the Harbour.
The whole place was very clean and quiet, the gardens and the pool were lovely.
We cooked in a couple of nights and sat on the balcony with a drink the other people lit little lanterns on there balconys and it had a relaxing atmosphere.
We will be back again, this time with our son and his family, as there is loads of room for us all.

Funchal Bay Apartment is located in the Varandas complex in a very popular well-established quiet residential accommodation zone with many residents from different countries including the UK and Scandinavia. Situated in Rua Silvestre Q Freitas access to the City Centre could not be easier! YOU DO NOT NEED A CAR! Leave your hire car in the covered private apartment parking place and wander down the hill around to this attractive 500 year old city.

To reach the beginning of the ZONA VELHA City quarter (‘Old zone’) is about 10 minutes. Besides the ‘Art Deco’ MERCADO DOS LAVRADORES market, there are many restaurants, museums including Madeira Story Centre, The City Theatre – a copy of the original ‘La Scala’ opera house and art galleries including the one in the yellow Sao Tiago pirate fort right on the ocean front. 2 shopping centres at the bottom of the hill accommodate a Pingo supermarket open until 10pm and other businesses including a pharmacy.

Madeira is:

'-flower-filled landscapes

-verdant canyons

-pristine waterfalls

-subtropical 'Pearl of the Atlantic' whichhas long entranced visitors

-900km (560 miles) southwest of Portugal

-mountainous, forest-covered interior

-balmy year-round temperatures thanks to warm Atlantic currents

Aside from magnificent walking and trekking, Madeira is famed for its fortified wine

Gateway to the island is Funchal, a picturesque city that rises on steep slopes over the bay. Its attractive old town, vibrant dining and nightlife and cinematic scenery at its doorstep continue to draw travellers from across the globe...'

Also, near the Apartment is the Fort and the sea swimming complex 'Barreirinha' with

crystal clear water. Nearby public transport includes bus stations and the

cable car station to Monte location of the famous Church and botanical

gardens.

Also consider, dolphin & whalewatching from the Marina, day trip to Porto

Santo island or The Desertas Islands in the summer months, Visits to the

Madeira Wine companies, Museums, Art galleries and of course the toboggan

ride down from Monte after the cable car ride up! Road connections to all

parts of the Island from the main roads in Funchal are good.

And after a hard day exploring the Island watch the sunset and relax in the

Apartment's pool and gardens or relax with a glass of wine on the Apartment

balcony
