Hi, my name is Nuno and I am renting out an apartment with stunning ocean views in the Portuguese Madeira island.

I'm interested in architecture and design but I also love to travel, tending to prefer beach or city destinations.

If you have any questions about my flat, please feel free to get in touch with me.

Nuno Galiza purchased this apartment in 2001

I knew this apartment was 'THE ONE', since the moment I got inside and watched its' magical view.

The quiet surrounded area and easy access were also a plus.

After visiting this apartment, I've lost any interest I had in any other I had visited before.

It was love at first sight.

The best view in Madeira!

Superb apartment with a great view

The apartment is ideally situated above the city, the view from the balcony affords an outstanding panorama of the natural amphitheatre of the bay of Funchal

The apartment is tastefully decorated to a very high standard throughout and was spotlessly clean when upon arrival. A good selection of electrical appliances was available in the spacious kitchen, there’s a gas hob with electric oven and a microwave and oven combo also.

Visit the Mercado dos Lavradores to see what’s available in fresh produce and then stock up the kitchen. If you like seafood you’re in for a treat, be sure to try the amazing Black Scabbard (Espada Preta) fish. There’s a bakery about three hundred metres away (opposite the Centro Civico), which opens on Sundays also.

A choice of satellite TV channels is provided in several languages (only BBC World in English), ARD, TV5 Monde and RAI Uno, as well as the Portuguese channels. A good quality surround sound AV system is hooked up to the TV and you can play CDs and DVDs through it.

I often find it very difficult to get a good night’s sleep when away from home, this was certainly not the case here, it was a joy to be able to fall asleep on a comfortable bed and not worry about waking up in the middle of the night with back pain brought on by a substandard mattress.

If you like swimming I would recommend Canico just a few kilometres drive away, the water was 19 degrees in March and crystal clear.

Car hire is a great option, but be aware that Satnav road mapping is not available for Madeira at present. Navigating the island however is simple and the main roads are very well signposted. It takes only a couple of minutes to get to the apartment after leaving the quiet motorway that links the city to the airport. It’s not easy to get a good map of Funchal but it’s hard to get lost. Be prepared for the steep inclines on the island, I was amazed how many times I had to drop down to first gear.

If you’re not driving getting into town is simple as there’s a bus stop only a hundred metres from the apartment, alternatively taxis are abundant all the time.

This is one of the best apartments I have ever stayed in, the location was perfect – great view, easy access to town and country. Comfortable, stylish modern and clean, the pictures on the website are very accurate. Top class all around.

Madeira is incredibly beautiful and the people are genuinely friendly I look forward to going again.

A very nice apartment, accurately described and photographed in the advert. Clean and well-equipped. The views over to the Harbour from the balcony are stunning, but it is a steep 25 min walk down to the front if you want to get to the main restaurant/shopping area. The owner provides a bus timetable, the no.34 bus goes from right outside the apartment on a circular route to the town centre. Buses around the island very good if not hiring a car. Taxis from town back up to the apartment at night plentiful and reasonable. Away from the main hotel area, the apartment is in a good residential district, near to the motorway junction if touring. Recommend Mozart Restaurant in Old Town or its sister restaurant in the grounds of the old fort museum.

Wunderschönes Apartment mit großartiger Aussicht!

Das Apartment ist von der Größe und Ausstattung her überdurchschnittlich. Die große Küche ist mit allem ausgestattet, was das Herz begehrt und wenn das Wetter nicht so gut gewesen wäre, hätten wir sicher öfters gekocht.
Die Betten sind sehr bequem, das Doppelbett sehr groß und alle mit guten, nicht zu weichen Matratzen. Im großen Wohnzimmer ist viel Platz für den Esstisch, zwei große Sofas, die weich sind und die übrige Einrichtung. Auch das Bad ist bestens ausgestattet.
Der Höhepunkt ist der lange Balkon mit einer phantastischen Aussicht über ganz Funchal.
Einmal die Woche kommt Isabell und wechselt die Bettwäsche, wäscht und putzt die Wohnung, die blitzsauber war.
In Empfang genommen hat uns Sergio und uns eine Einweisung gegeben, außerdem war er zu jeder Zeit telefonisch erreichbar und uns eine große Hilfe.
Wir hatten einen kleinen Mietwagen, der sich als ideal für den kleinen Parkplatz und die engen Straßen um das Apartment herausstellte, aber es befindet sich auch eine Bushaltestelle in der Nähe sowie kleinere Einkaufsmöglichkeiten, so dass es auch ohne geht.
Bedingt durch das gute, wolkenlose Wetter ( auch im Sommer nicht selbstverständlich ) waren wir jeden Tag unterwegs zum Wandern und haben morgens und abends den Ausblick vom Balkon genossen. Manchmal wurde es nachmittags bei Sonneneinstrahlung und nur einem Pfeiler als Sonnenschutz schon zu heiß.
Aufgrund der sehr guten Ausstattung und des Platzangebotes läßt es sich aber auch bestimmt bei schlechtem Wetter gut aushalten. Wir haben uns jedenfalls sehr wohl gefühlt und würden jederzeit wiederkommen. Vielen Dank an Isabell, Sergio und Nuno!

Had a wonderful 2 weeks at Murteiras Apartment. Views from balcony were spectacular especially at sunset. Apartment very clean and fully equipped. Beds were comfortable as were the sofas.

Description on website was accurate.

The apartment was well located for the local bus stop and there was a bakery and cafe/supermarket within easy walking distance.

Sergio and Isabelle were very pleasant and provided lots of information about the island and places to visit. They made us feel very welcome and couldn't have been more helpful.

All in all, we would have absolutely no hesitation in recommending this apartment to friends or family. We are hoping to visit again in the near future.

Just returned from a fantastic stay in this apartment. The view of the fireworks from the balcony on New Year's Eve was spectacular. Watching the sunsets from the hammock is another view I could never tire of! A very clean and comfortable apartment with everything we needed and we soon felt at home. The bus service was reliable and got us up and down into town easily from the nearby stop. Looking forward to going back in the Spring. Thanks, Nuno.

We had 8 perfect holidays in Funchal. The apartment of Nuno Galiza is very well equipped and furnished very stylefull. It has a beautiful view over Funchal and its harbour and it is a pleasure to sit on the balcony in the night with a glas of red wine and enjoy the view.
It is a good base to explore Madeira, also by bus (stops nearby).

We stayed 10 days in this apartment and had a great time. The apartment has got a very nice view over Funchal and it's harbour and is very well equiped.
From here you can reach the whole island perfectly.
I would recommend this apartment to everyone who wants to go to Madeira. It's perfect for a group of 4 persons.

Great Location for Holidays

We stayed at Murteiras Apartment in May 2008 for 8 days and we assume that there are a lot of things which made the time perfect:
a great location in Funchal, best view to harbour and town (really like on the photos) we stayed most evening on the balcony because the view was a lot better than in each location in Funchal itself.
The location is very quite so that you can sleep with open windows.

The apartment itself was perfectly furnished with all equipment and even all of the kitchen things you need for cooking. And it was very clean. Even our 3 year old son felt pretty well.

We are sure we will come back and tell all friends.
