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.

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.
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.
We were 4 adults and two Children. Our stay was wonderfull, thr flat was really big and lighty, we enjoyed our stay there. It was very clean and the seaview was very amazing.
I want to go back there.
Thank you, Gracinda!
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.
