Downstairs, there is a fantastic bakery from where you will almost certainly buy your morning bread & your goodies for tea. There are also two more cafés, two mini-supermarkets and two car rental firms downstairs at street level. Park your hire car in the apartment's reserved undercover bay at the end of a lovely day in the Madeiran countryside. The apartment boasts an entrance hall, a spacious living/dining room, a lovely bedroom, small kitchen (perfect for holidays) and a full bathroom. The living and bedroom both have floor-to-ceiling and wall-to-wall windows to maximise your views at all times of the day. Perfect location, perfect relaxation.
Golf: Madeira's two beautiful international level golf courses are both less than half an hour's drive from the apartment and are well worth exploring. Palheiro Golf: On this 18-hole course, set out over 6086 metres, there is a breathtaking view over the bay of Funchal, and a natural setting which includes a garden with over twenty endemic species of Madeira (including the Laurel) classified by UNESCO as World Natural Heritage. Santo da Serra: The sea and mountain views from the course of Santo da Serra Golf Club make it one of the most spectacular in Europe. The 9003 metres of the 27-hole course make up the ideal green for beginners and professionals alike, which explains why Santo da Serra Golf is host to the Madeira Open.
Levadas: The network of levadas is only a bus ride or taxi journey away. Levadas are water courses running round the mountains and were built by the first settlers to carry water to inaccessible farmland. Today they are one of Madeira’s greatest tourist attractions. Madeira has a fantastic network of trails and levadas. There are more than 200 levadas crisscrossing the island’s basalt rock masses, taking hikers into a rare natural world. Along these irrigation channels you will come across species of fauna and flora found hardly anywhere else in the world, in Madeira’s traditional Laurissilva Forest, which has been declared a World Natural Heritage Site.
Eating Out & Entertainment: In the heart of Funchal's restaurant zone and close to all the amenities, this apartment is your perfect base to explore and indulge. You only have to cross the road to experience the world famous High Tea on the terrace at the Reid's Palace Hotel.
From the apartment, the whole of Funchal and Madeira are at your fingertips. Stroll into the centre to the old zone or down to the marina for a fresh seafood meal.
