Located about 5 minutes Private Car City center and 10 minuts by bus, with easy access to any point of the island, very comfortable and quiet allowing you to enjoy a mix of environments between countryside and city. With wooded garden, romantic corners, solarium, south terrace, barbecue, leisure areas with wide panoramic views odd, Funchal Bay to the Atlantic Ocean and the mountains, ideal for those seeking rest in peace. Located on a hill in the amphitheater of the city of Funchal in the background allowing you to offer a wide vision and privileged to watch the fireworks and New Year weekend of June: Feast Atlantic ( with fireworks), or even the lights in festive seasons. Near the golf course, the botanical garden, the gardens of Quinta do Palheiro, very close making it a very interesting option for lovers of this sport.

Stunning Views and Comfort Make This Sought After
You can tell from the other reviews that this property is very highly thought of. It is actually the base floor of a three story villa (yes the other two are rented out as well) and access is gained by dropping down 30 or so steps through a terraced garden. Car parking space is on the road (which is a No through road) and so only utilised by other residents.
The great views over Sao Goncalo and Funchal come from the fact you are about 400m above sea level and the roads leading to the property have some very steep sections. Yes a bus service does stop just around the corner but the final hill could be tough for anybody but the fittest. I would recommend a car but one with a large engine otherwise you could spend two weeks coming up in first gear like I did (1.2 Corsa).
The layout of the place is just like the pictures and would be comfortable for four but we were only two and it suited our needs perfectly.
The front of the property is terracotta tiles and there is a small semi circle where two sunbeds could be placed comfortably. There is also a table and four wooden chairs as well. The garden goes down in terraces and are maturely planted and quite lovely.
Inside the property had most appliances you could need and all the accoutrements are all serviceable.
There are not too many restaurants close by and so eating means cooking in or taking another trip down and up the hill. However, Filomena is a font of knowledge of the local area and has many attraction and restaurant details in the property and if you seek her opinion she is very forthcoming. We found her a great help and she provided perfect customer service and was quick to respond to any of our queries.
I certainly would not hesitate in recommending this property to any relative or friend as the location and facilities were just right for us and far better than stopping in a hotel.
Yes there is a constant hum from the Rapide (dual carriageway) which is down the hill but it is not really noticeable (except when a large motorbike screams it's way along but after 15 seconds peace descends again). I certainly found sitting out and reading easy and relaxing. There is also good shade if you are not a sun seeker although as the sun comes around the hillside it does get harder but there is a large umbrella with the property and so that helps (just have to watch if it is also windy!).
I thank you very much for your review about the apartment you rented in my property , but i must say that i am confused when you say that :
"Car parking space is on the road and so only utilised by other residents." I am sorry, but you have a parking place closed inside de property , witch you can remenber because you went there every day to enter and leave the property, I thought you preferred to leave the car outside in the front door of the property, because you did not ask me anything more about it .
Allso when you say that :" you recommend a car but one with a large engine otherwise you could spend two weeks coming up in first gear like I did (1.2 Corsa)." - this should be a recomendation for all people that visit madeira and rent a car , because if you are discovering madeira you will find more steep roads, because all of madeira land is steep .
Also when you say:
" It is actually the base floor of a three story villa (yes the other two are rented out as well and are completely autonomous ).
"access is gained by dropping down 30 or so steps through a terraced garden" - There is a photo of those stairs in the add with the objective of showing that you have them .
I regret that you had not asked me nothing about this issues , because , for exemple , car parking could be solved immediately.
Thank you again .
Best regards ,

Wir haben alles so vorgefunden, wie angekündigt. Wir wurden sehr persönlich und empathisch begrüßt und während unseres Aufenthaltes begleitet.
Wir können die Unterkunft nur empfehlen und werden bestimmt wieder kommen.
Thank you so much, I'm very happy that you enjoyed our accommodation and also our services.
You will always be welcome.
Nett, freundlich, toller Blick
Hier ist alles sehr schön. Die Vermieterin ist sehr freundlich und hilfsbereit. Probleme werden sofort gelöst. Leider ist die Autobahn akustisch doch recht präsent. Sonst top.
Dear Mr. Valentin and family,
Thank you for your kind words, it was a pleasure to receive your family and you will be always welcome.
As for road, there are people more sensitive, I'm sorry if that affected you.
