Bela Sao Tiago
Sao Tiago is a wonderful top-floor apartment, spacious for 2 adults, with a small south harbour-facing terrace. It is well-equipped, including fast wi-fi, a good washing machine, drying rack and roof-top clothes lines. It is near Zona Velha, and many great restaurants, bars, Mercado dos Lavradores, Fortaleza de Santiago (Sao Tiago), cable car, buses, supermarkets, and for the best cappuccino in Funchal, Barrierinha Bar Café. A short walk to the sea front, particularly for the June fireworks most Saturday nights, launched from Pontinha. The local property agent is helpful, e.g. offered and provided the Madeira Now card (euro 8) that offers discounts at many restaurants and bars.
Loved the apartment and it’s position in the old town area of Funchal.
It was the roof top garden which appealed to us and we weren’t disappointed! South facing, we had the sun from breakfast until 6.45 pm. It was very quiet and it was lovely to watch the cable cars passing by and the cruise ships coming and going. The apartment was within a well maintained building and I can honestly say that there was absolutely no noise from neighbours. A large spacious lounge, comfortable bed with fresh linen, very well equipped kitchen, all with views of Funchal. If I was to criticise anything, it would be the bathroom which I felt could really do with updating. As I’m writing this, my husband is booking the apartment for his big birthday next year..speaks for itself..would love to return.
Thank you for staying with us and we already booking for next year
Location, location, location (with a view!)
This apartment is in a perfect location in funchal. A 2 minute flat walk to the cable car terminal, sea front promenade and all the bars and restaurants of the old town. It's also only 5 minutes to the various bus stops to take you to other parts of the island. No need for a car if you dont fancy driving along the scary Madeira roads! The apartment is excellent, one of the best we've stayed at and we've stayed at a few! The roof terrace faces south and has the sun all day. You can watch the cable cars go past or the cruise ships coming and going, it's a lovely view no matter what time of day or night. The kitchen was very well equipped, everything you need to self cater. The lounge was very spacious and although there were only 2 of us, I can imagine it would comfortably accommodate 3 or 4. There are only 2 minor downsides, the lift takes you to the 3rd floor but the apartment is on the 4th so you have to walk up a flight of steps ( not a problem for us but be aware if you've reduced mobility). Also there didnt appear to be any air conditioning, again not a problem for us in February. Communication with the agent was also very good. Highly recommend this apartment and hope to be back soon to this stunningly beautiful island!
A great little apartment well situated in the heart of old town, moments from the restaurants and the local swimming lido. Very well equipped and well maintained. Unless you want to tour the island, you really don't need a car - especially in the evenings where there is enough variety to easily last your stay.
our stay in june
We have been to several apartments all over europe over the past several years...this was one of the best we've visted.
Clean, spacious, wonderful views, great central, but quiet location... but, most of all, SO well equipped.
Everything one could want for cooking - even a pinny and shopping bag !
Hervorragende Lage im Altstadtviertel, 1-2 Minuten zu Fuß zum Wasser, mehreren kleinen Supermärkten und uriger Restaurantmeile. Gigantischer Blick vom Balkon auf das Meer und die Stadt. Das Appartment entspricht genau der Beschreibung und den Bildern. Insgesamt sehr gut ausgestattetes Appartment mit Spülmaschine, Waschmaschine, Saftpresse, Gewürzen und Öl, Fön, großem Kleiderschrank etc. und ausreichend Handtüchern für 1 Woche. Die Schlüsselübergabe war völlig unkompliziert. Wir durften netterweise unserer Koffer bereits früh morgens im Appartment abstellen, obwohl noch geputzt wurde, so dass wir ganz entspannt in die Stadt frühstücken gehen konnten.
Einzig das Bett hätte etwas breiter und bequemer sein können (kein Lattenrost).
Madeira, wir kommen definitiv wieder und sehr gerne in dieses Appartment!
Located in Funchal city on the historic old quarter, This apartment is near Forte de São Tiago, now occupied by the Contemporary Art Museum, you will find a variety of cafés and restaurants, some fado houses, the Madeira cable car building, the starting point for the cable car up the city’s hillsides to Monte, the small Corpo Santo Chapel and the Barreirinha Bathing Complex, with access to the sea. Nearby is the Church of Santa Maria Maior, which dates back to 1803, also known as Igreja do Socorro.
Golf: Golfers will be pleased to know that the new 18-hole Palheiro golf course is no more than a 30 minute drive. Classic Madeiran hills, ridges and deep valleys have all been incorporated into the terrain to produce a dramatically interesting course, with stunning views. The spectacular 27-hole Santo da Serra golf course (also known as Campo de Golfe and home to the Madeira Island Open) is also within easy reach. This is Madeira’s oldest golf course. It sits high up on a plateau and is marvellous scenic with inspirational views back up the mountains and out over the Atlantic below.
