Good location away from hotel zone. Easy walk into old town and small shop just a couple of min. awa
Great experience. All the information about the apt was accurate. A few more mugs and tea towels would be helpful and perhaps a few more basics like olive oil. Not a significant problem though.
Emily the housekeeper was helpful and friendly. Drivers are good in Madeira (I thought) so no problem driving if you don’t mind the hills and winding roads. Arrange your rental before arriving in Madeira, particularly the insurance coverage or you’ll end up paying much more. Fantastic weather early Nov. 2019 and not too busy. Inexpensive in supermarkets and restaurants especially compared to UK. Lots of varied scenery, wonderful views and levada walks ( bring your hiking poles). Go to Porto Moniz to swim in the natural pools (the free ones are fine, more natural than the ones you pay to enter). The hike to the eastern tip Ponta de Sao Lourenco is well worth it and a swim at the nearby beach. I recommend the restaurant Lareira Portuguesa (address: Estrada Monumental, Travessa Doutor Valente. Real Portuguese food, delicious fish soup/ stew. It’s on the hotel side of town but locals eat there. A trip to Blandy’s (Madeira producer) was interesting and enjoyable.
Lovely to have the swimming pool at the apt. and tha balcony. Local dogs will give you a wake up call and nighttime serenade. The central fan (or A/C blocks the sound nicely. Otherwise the dogs are well contained and not a problem.
Wonderful holiday. Lots to do and see if you wish. Good luck! Jane Nov. 2019
Thank you Jane for leaving this lovely long revue.
I wish you all the best for the future.
By the way I mentioned in my previous email about my forthcoming visit next may and June that we had been to Ottawa...in fact it is Quebec that we visited with the queen mary.

Well situated and clean apartment in Madeira's largest town
We found the property spacious enough for a family of, essentially, four adults. It is comfortable and well-located, about 10-15 minutes' walk from the centre of Funchal (all downhill!) There is a bus stop right outside the apartment, and taxis from the town cost about €5. We therefore found no use for a car.
The owners are helpful and quick to respond. They are based in the UK but have set up excellent local support, with Emily (the housekeeper) and Manuel (who can be booked for taxis to and from the airport as well as tours of the island). Both are very friendly, knowledgeable and provide excellent service. Mind you, we found that to be the case pretty much everywhere on this stunning island!
lovely, comfortable and spacious apartment
really nice apartment with all which is needed to have a lovely holiday. It was our first stay in Madeira and we loved all about it; the island, the flowers, the climate, the people.
Moreover the apartment has everything what is needed for a comfortable and relaxing holiday.
Exceptionally clean, great views, perfect location
Really great location, excellent meet and greet, super clean and enough space, lovely swimming pool, would definitely recommend, family of 4, children 12&10
This is a brand new prestigious development with own landscaped swimming/spa pool with sun beds - 10/15 minute walk to the town centre(downhill). Residential area with sweeping views of the town, harbour and of the sea; also views of the mountains including the area of Monte. Own dedicated secure car space in underbuilding garage.
