Why Gracinda de Abreu chose Funchal

Madeira is a a Portuguese archipelago with Porto Santo Island and Selvagens, its origins is volcanic from a Hot Spot. Madeira belongs and has belonged ethnically, culturally, economically and political to Europe for 600 years. Madeira was discovered between 1418 and 1420 by the Portuguese captains João Gonçalves Zarco and Tristão Vaz by orders of Prince Henry the Navigator, master from the Sagres Navigator School.

In the XIX century the English discovered the amenity of the climate of Madeira. When they were coming from their colonies in Asia, the started to stop in Madeira and some just stay as it happens l nowadays with some of our tourists. Madeira is a popular year round resort. It is possible to do all kind of sports, mountain and sea, swimming on sea or in the fantastic natural swimming pools, discover the bushes Laurissilva-Unesco protected, Cabo Girão (seen from the apartment); Santana, where we can find how the antiques lived in their small houses. Pico Ruivo, nearly 2.000 meters high. Also there are the walks on the Levadas, channels made by man to bring water from the north to the south also UNESCO protected, with its unique views and water falls. Madeira has a good climate all over the year.

Funchal, the capital of Madeira is unique with its fantastic arbour spread in an enormous amphitheatre, which specially in the New Year Eve the show of fire works is phenomenal and famous all over the world.

Funchal is one of this places that when you have been you will never forget. During all year there are many festivities, namely: Christmas and New Year Eve, Flower Festival, Carnival, Strawberry Festival, Cherry Festival, Wine Festival, Nuts Festival and also festivals of their many Guardian Saints as Madeiriens are very religious. Christmas is very special, they decorate all their houses with lights and all public spaces and also make representations of the birth o Jesus in different public areas.

What makes this apartment unique

Ajuda area with the few kilometres of Promenade, the sea, the beaches and the natural swimming pools, the reefs the tropical trees and flowers the long walks and the fantastic rising and sunset and the hug balconies of the apartment make it really a marvellous place to live and rest peacefully.

Also there are many museums, , soccer stadium, local restaurants, shopping centres, pubs, cable car rides, walks on the Promenade( in front of the apartment), cinemas, theatre, local fish market with big festivals specially in Christmas, historical buildings and churches.

Fantastic Apartment

  • 5 of 5

Our last day and we don't want to go. Lovely apartment, very spacious, great views from front and rear. As described. Our hosts on WhatsApp if we needed them. Great WiFi, new 42" LCD TV, loads of towels, sheets, etc. There were 6 of us for the first few days and it was still very spacious. Great, quieter location very close to sea pools and lidos. Pizzas next door were a staple diet for our boys, and when we cooked, utensils were ample. We got bus cards charged in the supermarket next door for cheaper transport and a family card for the local swimming facilities at the first lido to the left (5 Euros per adult, we thought, was a bit steep). If you can, hire a car, skywalk and teleferico (cablecar) at Capo Girao and the caves at Sao Vicente and pools at Porto Moniz were well worth a visit . Thoroughly recommend this area and apartment.

Brilliant!!!!!!!

  • 5 of 5

Lovely spacious apartment with spectacular views out to sea at the front and down the coast at the back.

Furnishings and fittings are first rate. Amazing position near to supermarket and restaurants. The number 2 bus stops right outside and goes into Funchal every 30 mins. You can also catch the number 1 or number 4 and get off at the Forum. Alternatively easy walks along the promenade to the Lido.

We enjoyed breakfasting in the sun on the balcony and having Gin and Tonic as the sun goes down.

TV lacks English channels but WIFI very good. DVD player very useful.

Spacious and comfortable with fantastic view

  • 4 of 5

For second time we are 4 adults who have spent two weeks in this apartment. Again we are very satisfied with our stay. However, we can not give it a full score this time due to embarrassing noise and dust from refurbishing work of the apartment next door and the building across the street. Otherwise it is a pleasure to recommend this apartment to others. Fantastic seaview from the two balconies and proximity to shopping centres and town bus.

We are two couples from Norway who spent two wonderful weeks in this apartment. The description of the apartment is very precise. Lot of space for four peaple.The sea view is fantastic, not only from the front balcony but also from the balcony at the backside. We found the apartment clean and in good order. There are a few restaurants nearby, and many more in the Lido area which is within walking distance. The town bus is stopping just outside the front door. The several kilometers long beach promenade from Lido to Camara de Lobos is passing by the building. A super market is found in the neighbour building and the Madeira Forum shopping centre is a few minutes walk away. It is a pleasure to recommend this apartment to others.
