About the property

Quiet location with extensive views over Funchal. Sleeps two. Free Internet

This extremely spacious one bedroom apartment brings you right into the heart of Funchal, but in a very quiet and peaceful residential area where you can relax on your balcony and watch the cruise ships and ferries coming and going or lounge round the communal pool and soak up the sun – a real oasis of calm just minutes from the city centre. The elevated balcony gives a perfect view of the cable cars making their way up to Monte and firework displays in June and at the New Year. There is a large double bedroom with sliding doors to the balcony that extends the full length of the apartment, a full bathroom and a well equipped kitchen. The lounge is spacious with dining area, DVD player and cable TV, again with sliding doors bringing the balcony into the room. High-speed internet access is free. The pool has loungers and umbrellas for your use - beach towels are provided. The complex has just been fully redecorated. Cafes, restaurants and supermarkets are all within 5 minutes’ walk. Reserved car parking is available in the secure garage beneath the apartment.

Lovely apartment

  • 5 of 5

Just returned from our first holiday in Madeira staying at this lovely apartment in Funchal. The apartment is very spacious and clean and feels more like a home than a holiday let and has a nice balcony with great views over the town and out to sea and the Marina.

Manuel collected us from the airport (about 20 minutes drive) and was very friendly and informative about the Island, and dropped us off at the apartment where we met Rita the cleaner who gave us a tour of the apartment and building which was very helpful.

The pool area is lovely and quiet too and a real bonus.

It is just a 5-10 minute walk to both the old and new town areas.

The only downside is the steep hill back to the apartment but you cant have everything and it did help with some much needed exercise after eating at the many excellent restaurants close by, particularly in the Old Town.

We would recommend this apartment and Madeira in general.

Five stars!

Spacious apartment in perfect location

  • 5 of 5

This is a very spacious one bedroom apartment in the perfect location for access to the old town, restaurants, shops and seafront in Funchal. The car park, which is within the apartment block, is also a real bonus, as is the free wifi. The apartment also has a lovely balcony offering great views, exactly like the photo in the advert. We enjoyed breakfast out here every day and often had dinner there too. There's information in the apartment for tourist attractions, transport etc. Communication with the owner before and on arrival was very prompt and reliable. We were met by a friendly and helpful manager who showed us around the property and gave us useful advice. The apartment is excellent value for money. We would definitely recommend it and would stay here again if we return to Madeira. Many thanks for everything - we had a great holiday!

Amazing Honeymoon, Amazing Food, Amazing Country

  • 5 of 5

This apartment was everything we expected. Close to Old Town, and not too far from New Town. The only thing that was a pain was driving in this country and specifically in the older sections as the roads are narrower and there are lots of one way roads. Once we got used to it, it was much better. Lots to see in Madeira. The couple we rented this apartment from were very nice. The apartment was clean, close to a supermarket and had a great clean pool. If we go back to Madeira I would rent this apartment again. Thank you.

Perfect location.

  • 5 of 5

Remarkably quiet location considering that it is so near the city centre - just a short walk away, with a short steep hill coming back - but the elevation gives you the views across the bay, so it's worth the exercise! Large sunny balcony. Everything you need - the fancy TV is almost too good!

Spacious accommodation

  • 5 of 5

Great location - we hired a car but didn't need to, as the city centre is only ten minutes walk. Considering that it is so close to the centre it was very quiet. Good views from the balcony - watching cruise ships coming and going. Rooms spacious compared to some we have stayed in. Highly recommended - we have booked for next year - can't wait.

Das Appartement entspricht voll und ganz der Besch

  • 5 of 5

Das Appartement entspricht voll und ganz der Beschreibung. Es ist sauber. Die Bettwäsche wurde nach einer Woche gewechselt. Handtücher genügend vorhanden. Waschmaschine - sehr praktisch. Die Küche ist einfach, aber genügend ausgestattet (Geschirr, Töpfe).

In knapp 10 Minuten ist man zu Fuß im Zentrum von Funchal, an der Markthalle noch schneller. Bushaltestellen (Busbahnhof) sind ebenso sehr nah.

Wir haben viele Örtlichkeiten mit Bussen erreicht - Busfahrplan liegt in der Wohnung :-) - nur um in den äußersten Westen der Insel zu gelangen haben wir ein Auto angemietet.

Nach den Levadawanderungen und Besichtigungstouren in anderen Orten war die Abkühlung im Pool sehr angenehm.

Wenn wir noch einmal Urlaub auf Madeira machen würden, würden wir dieses Appartement wieder nehmen ... und auch Freunden empfehlen.
