Overview

Sao Goncalo House Rental Photos and Description

Two bedrooms, sleeps 4 comfortably, private garden with sea view.

Casa Sisse is situated in a suburb, east of Funchal, the capital of Madeira island, with a picture postcard view over the city and the Bay.

It is situated at the end of a quiet cul-de-sac with no traffic near the house.

On the Google map it looks like the house sits right next to the motorway. However, as we are placed on a hillside*), the house lies some 6 to 8 meters below the surface of the motorway, and besides, my own house lies between the motorway and Casa Sisse offering further noise protection.

*) Hence the suggestion of renting a car.

The house was built in 1981 with a large kitchen, large living room, one bedroom with sea view and a second bedroom in the back of the house, both equipped with double beds. Maximum number of guests is 4.

The house has comfortable chairs, sofa, beds and pillows, duvets, blankets, wardrobes and a bathroom with shower. The house has a sociable open plan kitchen, dining and sitting room area.

The kitchen is well equipped with dishwasher, fridge/freezer, microwave and electric fan oven, as well as other household appliances.

In the front garden is a table seating 4 persons, and deck chairs.

The house has broadband internet access / Wi-fi and cable TV. Private parking next to the house.

The owner is a Danish expatriate who lives nearby. He has many years of experience with tourism in Madeira and will help you with tips and suggestions if needed.

About The owner

I am a Danish expatriate, and I have lived in Madeira for more that 45 years. I have, since my arrival here, been occupied with tourism, and I still am.. I do speak several foreign languages, besides the Scandinavian languages, as for example English, some German, a little French and, of course, Portuguese. My own house lies just behind Casa Sisse, so I am quite easy to 'get hold of', in case needed, and I shall be quite happy to help you with suggestions and advise.

The owner purchased this house in 1995

plaisant stay

  • 4 of 5

we spent one week holiday beginning April 2016 very nice. The house is big and everything is provided ( towels , hair dryer , washing machine, flat screen TV, cable , DVD player, auxiliary heating ... ) there is even a maid , which was very aprciable during our stay and we facilitated our departure, we just had to tidy everything. the owner is very nice, he even came to meet us to show us the way home and we could contact him by phone if necessary. he offered us a bottle of wine on arrival. he made the effort to speak French with us. we are delighted with our stay and we recommend renting because it is well located (not far from Funchal and the motorway )

Überaus sympathischer Gastgeber

  • 3 of 5

Wäre nicht die nahe Autobahn und der durch einen zu protzig geratenen modernen Villenklotz teilweise verstellte Blick auf die herrliche Bucht von Funchal verdiente die in die Jahre gekommene aber nicht uncharmante Unterkunft die volle Punktzahl. Herr Amby Töger erlebten wir als überaus charmant und hilfsbereit. Herzlichen Dank!

Located in the outskirts of Funchal near the church of Sao Gonçalo, Casa Sisse is the perfect setting for exploring the island of Madeira. The house itself sits on the Eastern side of the 'amphitheatre' of Funchal overlooking the bay with beautiful sunsets and long sunny days.

Please note that on the Google Map it looks as if Casa Sisse is situated right next to the motorway. This is, however, an optical illusion:

The house lies on a hillside and therefore about 10 metres below the level of the motorway. Besides that my own house lies between Casa Sisse and the motorway, so the noise level can be compared to that one hears from sea waves.

The island is nicknamed the Garden of the Atlantic and has flowering bushes and trees all year round, also right next to Casa Sisse. The island of Madeira offers plenty of opportunities to enjoy the sea and mountains, including the famous levada walks. There is an excellent golf course called Palheiro Golf nearby, where one will also find a beautiful park. Funchal has many shopping and entertainment possibilities, in addition to the the romantic Old Town. The climate is stable all year round, with Winter maximum daily average being 20 degrees Celsius and Summer maximum daily average 26.

Notes:
Nearest bus stop five minutes walking, including 200 meters of a rather steep road, so people with walking difficulties should rent a car. Funchal centre is about half an hour walking distance, again depending on fitness. The house is in a residential area. Large supermarkets within five minutes driving distance. Small grocery store, pharmacy, two restaurants and cafés within ten minutes walking next to the Sao Gonçalo church. Restaurant STOP specializes in local dishes like grilled chicken and bacalhau-dishes (dried codfish) (about 10 Euro per person) while Restaurant Zarcos (slightly more expensive) specializes in typical beef skewer (espetada) and local specialities, and commands a beautiful view over town and bay.
