About Bruno

I am born and raised in Funchal, 10 minutes away from this very apartment. Meanwhile, I have spent a few years studying in the UK and the US. When I had the opportunity to buy an apartment in such perfect location, I couldn't pass it by, I knew it would be a perfect place to rent out to visitors tour island.

Bruno purchased this apartment in 2009

Why Bruno chose Funchal

This area has been, for years, developing as the main area for visitors to stay in Funchal; so it is not surprising it has all the amenities in a radius of less than five minute walk.

You have several places which can give you access to the gorgeous sea (the complexo balnear do Lido and the Clube the turismo). Just in front of the latter you can also find a nice city park, a well stocked supermarket and several restaurants.

A few hundred meters form the apartment you will find more choices for restaurant, british-style pub and a very nice bakery.

The apartment is on a 7th floor with unimpeded fantastic view of the Bay of Funchal. A fully equipped kicthen, free high-speed internet, and lcd TV, fresh linens and towels make this apartment fully prepared for the visitor who likes to self-cater and have a comfortable base to explore Madeira's beauties.

What makes this apartment unique

It will be hard to find another area in Funchal where you can have a quiet place to stay, while having all amenities within walking distance. Such closeness to the sea is also rare in the city. It is not a coincidence it has developed in the main area for visitors to stay in Funchal.

The owner's family is fluent in English and always glad to help make your stay enjoyable.

Wonderful location, excellent view

  • 5 of 5

We spent three weeks at this apartment and loved our time there. It is close to several grocery stores and many bars and restaurants. The promenade along the ocean is a short walk downhill, and it is only a 30 minute walk to downtown. Great options for bus service are close by. Four of us shared the apartment (two couples) and we had ample room indoors and on the balconies. It is very charming, clean and comfortable with several couches and a small television. We would love to stay here again.

Great views, quiet, close to everything

  • 5 of 5

We (a family of four) had a great time in the apartment back in July. The view from the balcony is truly superb - we quickly got into the habit of having coffee there, and we even saw whales blowing in Funchal bay one early morning. Whenever we were too lazy to explore, we spent time at the swimming pool in the garden. The apartment was spotlessly clean, it's well equipped in general, fast Wi-Fi and a TV (important as our stay was during the World Cup!). Two bathrooms. Very quiet, as it's so far above the city and faces away from the street.

There are plenty of restaurants and convenience stores within walking distance, a big supermarket is 5 min away, and an impressive seaside beach 10 min away. The only reason we took a car was to explore remote parts of the island - it just takes a short bus ride to get to central Funchal. The apartment block always had parking available.

Perfect holiday family apartment

  • 5 of 5

An ideal apartment for a family of 4 (kids age of 15 and 12). The apartment had all the facilities needed and the pool area was great for both the kids and for relaxing in the sun. Supermarkets, car rental, bakery, restaurants and the sea were all in short walking distance from the apartment, so the location was very central, but at the same time also a quiet area. Superb value for money and definitively our choice of accommodation also the next time we come to Madeira.

We were so happy with our choice - Bruno is a wonderful host, and more importantly, the property was terrific. Everything is as described, and some features are even better than advertised!

The flat is clean, spacious, and comfortable - couldn't ask for anything more. The location is excellent - near everything we needed/wanted. Finally, the value is compelling. Similar and inferior properties are more expensive (significantly in some cases). Truly, it was a special experience and we will definitely stay with Bruno when we return.

Excellent place for our month holiday

  • 5 of 5

We visited Madeira for a month and this apartment was ideal. When we rented a car, there we could park it inside; but unless yoXu want to travel around the island a car is not needed. Everything you might need is close by: we enjoyed buying the excellent fresh portuguese bread and "bica' (expresso) every morning from the bakery down the street. There were two different mini-markets around the corner, but e recommend the bigger supermarket "Pingo Doce" down the street (5 min walk away towards the sea). Ask the owner for their excellent map of the area.

cross the street fro the supermarket you have the the Lido swimming pools and access to the sea and a nice park with restaurants around it. If you like restaurants the street of the apartment building has several.

The owner and his family are very quick responding to us, very professional and the did everything they could to made you feel welcome and have a comfortable stay.

We are planning to return!

Excellent base to explore the island.

  • 5 of 5

The location is indeed excellent for an easy holiday; everything you might need is at walking distance like other reviewers wrote.

Also, waking up every day to panoramic views of the sea and Funchal's bay is worth a million pounds!

We didn't spend much time at home, since Madeira has so much to see; but the apartment provided an excellent base for our explorations; we did enjoy the crystalline swimming pool some days and had some dinner in the main balcony enjoying the lazy end of the day.

You can trust Bruno and his family, the booking procedure was very professional and smooth. The apartment was spotless clean when we arrived. They have a lovely apartment and we already booked our next stay (this apartment books-up quite quickly, it seems).

Car: not necessary

The area is known as the Lido; it has one major supermarket, several bars and restaurants. The sea and two major swimming pool clubs are all less than 5 minutes away. It is very well served by public transportation, and although there's car parking in the property, one can do very well without one. Of course, it will be easier if you have a car in order to travel around the island to see it's beautiful mountains, golf courses, beaches and taste its food in the ubiquitous restaurants.

The Lido area is in Funchal and it's away from the hustle and bustle of

down town proper, although it is easily reachable by bus (15 min bus ride away).
