The apartment exceeded all our expectations – clean, comfortable and very well equipped. It is situated in a quiet and secure residential area only a five minute walk from the marina and centre of Funchal.
The view from the balcony is even better than depicted on the website.
Claudio’s representative was waiting for us on our arrival and could not have been more helpful and friendly.
There are numerous good quality restaurants nearby as well as smaller cafe bars. The main supermarket, situated in the Dolce Vita shopping centre, is also only a five minute walk towards the centre of Funchal.
There is a small climb uphill from town but it only requires an average degree of fitness. If we needed to carry heavy shopping we got a taxi from the supermarket entrance to the apartment at a cost of 3 Euros. There are, however, for convenience, several smaller supermarkets only a few minutes walk away.
Just around the corner, on the main road, it is possible to catch a local bus to the Lido, Forum shopping centre, Praia Formosa and other areas of interest west of Funchal.
This was the perfect holiday apartment for us and we have already booked a return visit this year for an extended period.
