Self-catering close to Funchal town centre includes use of gym and Jacuzzi
Situated just 4km outside of Funchal town centre, it is perfectly located for eating out, shopping, and sight seeing. Alternatively, relax by the infinity pool and admire the breath taking views over the Atlantic Ocean and Praia Formosa beach with its walkway to Camara De Lobos.
This modern second floor apartment is fully furnished, bright and airy, and comes with access to a fully equipped gymnasium (refitted in October 2015), jacuzzi, and outdoor pool area. It has its own parking space, lift access, and west facing balconies off both the living room and bedroom, espresso coffee machine, and WiFi internet access. An optional single bed is also available for a child.
Vila Formosa gains its name from the beach below, Praia Formosa, which is the main beach of Funchal. The apartment has steps (many!) down to the beach where you will find three great cafes and open air restaurants and a 2km walkway (on stilts in the sea) to the fishing village of Camara De Lobos (also with great cafes and restaurants).

About Natasha Blezard
We are hard working, like most of us! Consequently, we take 'holiday time' very seriously
Natasha Blezard purchased this Apartment in 2007
Why Natasha Blezard chose São Martinho
My husband wanted a place with a unbroken view of the sea, especially the sunsets over the Atlantic Ocean. A pool and gym was also important.

A little gem in Maderia
We found this amazing appartment having been to Madeira before and would certainly return again. It is close to all the shopping you would require and only a short bus trip away from Funchal. The appartment has stunning views and excellent facilities. Nothing but excellent communications with the owner. If you want a hassle free holiday in a high spec appartment, this is the one for you. A gem on this fantastic island.
Five Star Apartment with a Five Star View
We had a great stay here in February 2018, a well equipped apartment and a smashing base from which to explore Maderia island from. Quiet and warm in the evening. Kitchen perfect if you want to self-cater. Otherwise restaurants very close by. We loved it, hope to come again. Communication with owners was perfect and gave us all the information we needed. Excellent holiday / apartment pack includes a map. We never got lost once. I would say we saw 95% of the island. A great adventure.
Spacious, comfortable apartment with magnificent views over the bay. Well appointed with all mod cons and plenty of spare linen and towels if required. Lovely, if cold, infinity pool, jacuzzi and access to the gym if that's what you want to do! At this time of year there is no sun around the pool until about midday or on the apartment balconies until late afternoon, but sure that this isn't the case later in the summer.
The only drawback we can see is the access which is a very steep slope and 4 small flights of steps that would be difficult for anyone disabled or not very active.
All in all we would love to stay again at some time.
A lovely relaxing, quiet stay in Funchal
This is a lovely one bedroomed apartment on the edge of Funchal.
There is also a separate kitchen and utility room.
We loved sitting on the balconies (there are two) looking at the view of the pool, the beach and the Cabo Girao cliffs.
It's a bit of a steep walk through the complex to the road at the top, but immediately outside there are bus stops to take you to into the centre of Funchal.
Well appointed and equipped apartment with good views ,facilities and close to amenities. The good weather helped . I have no hesitation in recommending this property
The apartment was exceptionally clean, very comfortable and was in a great location with lovely view
We were greeted when we arrived, shown the apartment and provided with all info and keys needed.
The apartment has great sea views and a lovely pool and just a couple of minutes walk to the beach and a lovely
walk into the City Centre. It is very close to shops, bars and restaurants and the Island is stunning. We would definately return and highly recommend Villa Formosa. There is a bus stop right outside and great coffee shop across the road. The people of Madeira are charming.
Thank you! Hope to welcome you back soon.
Situated just 4km outside of Funchal town centre, it is perfectly located for eating out, shopping, and sightseeing. In about 20 minutes you can walk from the 'Old Town' but close to a taxi rank if you prefer. It is also less than 5 minutes walk from 'Forum Madeira', Funchal’s second largest shopping centre with 86 shops, including restaurants, cafés and snack bars, 6 cinemas (most films in English) and a hypermarket
