Funchal Panoramica is a spacious modern luxury penthouse apartment set in a residential area above the City Hospital. It occupies half the top floor of the building with a beautiful south facing aspect and stunning views of the sea and hills that surround Funchal.

The accommodation consists of one double bedroom with en-suite bathroom and small balcony, a second bedroom with 2 single beds and adjacent shower room and toilet, a kitchen and utility room, an entrance hall and a spacious living and dining room.

All rooms are furnished and equipped to a high standard, the living space is surrounded by floor to ceiling sliding glass panels which allow natural light to enter the space whilst at the same time offering spectacular views. There is access to a large private outdoor terrace which is equipped with a table and chairs and sun loungers.

Location of apartment: Location of apartment

The apartment is located in a central position above the City Hospital with an ocean view that offers sightings of fishing boats and cruise ships as they sail in and out of the harbour. The open aspect of the terrace is a great platform not only for sun bathing and relaxed dining, but also to enjoy the night sky and especially the spectacular fireworks display staged every New Year’s Eve in Funchal harbour and surrounding hillsides.

It is ideally situated for the road system in and around Funchal with easy access to and from the expressways which connect to the west of the Island and also to the eastern parts, including the airport which is only twenty minutes away.

Access by car to the Marina, the City centre and Old Town is just five minutes as is the Madeira Shopping complex and The Promenade which runs along in front of the major hotels.

The bus stop for access to the city centre is on the door step and walking down into town is a pleasure.

Met and exceeded expectations

  • 5 of 5

This is an excellent property. It is accurately described in its details and the service we received from the Agents was first class.

The property is modern, thoughtfully designed and immaculately presented. The day time areas are spacious and the terrace is breath taking. The bedrooms are a little small but certainly very useable and the whole property, including the apartment block it is located in, is very well maintained. There are lifts as well as stairs and a locked underground car park to keep the car cool during the day.

The location is about a 20 minute walk (downhill) to the sea front of Funchal, restaurants and the Casino. The walk back up the hill would be quite tiring for anyone who is not reasonably fit. However car use is easy and taxis readily available.

The only reason we have not given the property an unreserved recommendation is that at the time we stayed (July 08) there were road works going on a few hundred yards away and the daytime noise was intrusive, especially on the terrace. However we probably noticed the noise more than other people might as we live in the country and the work may well be finished already - we suggest you check with the Agent.

Otherwise this is an excellent property which when we rented was at a very attractive price. Add to that the good Customer Service from the Agent and this is a highly recommended property.

Superb property

  • 5 of 5

The description of the property is exactly as it is clean well furnished and equiped with everything you could need.

Tobi arranged a taxi to meet us at the airport and was at the apartment when we arrived to show us around. He had left some milk in the fridge and a bottle of wine which made us feel welcome.

There is a useful guide to the apartment and Funchal left by the owner.

The location is at the top of Funchal which gives a beautiful view but is a 20min walk downhill to the town. We caught a bus back as that is a steep walk but buses are frequent and stop close by.

Madeira is a beautiful island and we had a most enjoyable holiday.

Owner's Response: So pleased you enjoyed your stay in this wonderful property. The views are outstanding and no photos can do them justice, the walk down into town is pleasant as it is all down hill and as you say to get back the bus service is very good with frequent buses, and taxi's are cheap as well.

Excellent place to stay

  • 5 of 5

This property is well located and has amazing views down to the coast as well as up towards the hills. It is a short walk down the hill into central Funchal but is also well situated for exploring the rest of the island with easy access to the motorway.

The apartment is spotlessly clean and furnished in a modern style with everything you need, including sun loungers on the terrace! There is a very good fruit and vegetable/ small supermarket within 2 min walk where you can most things you need. There are larger shops a short drive in central Funchal.

The owner has left many walking guides and maps which we found really useful for exploring the island both on foot and by car. There is also information on good restaurants and other activites to do.

We had a fantastic holiday here and hope to stay here again in the future.

Tolle Penthousewohnung - leider nahe einer lauten Straße

  • 4 of 5

Die Wohnung hat zwei schöne Schlafzimmer und zwei Bäder (ein großes Badezimmer und ein kleines Duschbad). In dem toll eingerichteten Wohnzimmer findet man einen Fernseher (keine deutschen Sender) und einen DVD-Player (einige DVDs sind vorhanden). DAs WLAN funktioniert einwandfrei. Die Küche ist sehr gut ausgestattet, in einem Nebenraum gibt es eine Waschmaschine und einen Trockner. Alles war sehr gepflegt und sehr sauber. Richtig super ist die riesige Sonnenterrasse, von der man hat einen schönen Blick über Funchal und aufs Meer hat.

Die Wohnung liegt im nordwestlichen Bereich von Funchal, der Fußweg in die Altstadt beträgt 15 bis 20 Minuten. Für den Rückweg benötigt man aufgrund der Hanglage der Wohnung ausreichend Kondition.

Großartige Wohnung

  • 5 of 5

Wir waren im Januar 2010 für 2 Wochen in dieser tollen Wohnung. Sie ist gut aufgeteilt und ist bestens eingerichtet. Es fehlt an nichts. Die Terrasse ist einfach traumhaft, sowohl was die Größe aber vor allen Dingen was die Aussicht angeht. Selbst an Tagen wo das Wetter mal ausnahmsweise etwas schlechter war, sitzt man und kann die ganze Gegend beobachten. Toll ist auch der WLAN Anschluß, so konnten wir Kontakt zur Familie halten. Wir hatten das Glück das in der zweiten Woche direkt vor der Haustür eine Pastellerie geöffnet hat, so gab es jeden morgen frische Brötchen. Der pure Luxus war auch der Tiefgaragenplatz, immer ein fester Parkplatz und ein trockener Zugang zum Haus. Im Haus wohnen ansonsten nur Einheimische die aber sehr freundlich und hilfsbereit sind. Ein ganz besonderer Dank geht an Tobi. Er hat uns in jeder Situation immer bestens geholfen, und trotz eigener gesundheitlicher Probleme , immer zur Verfügung gestanden. Auch nachdem wir schon wieder zu Hause sind, schickt er uns noch viele Emails über die Themen die uns sehr interessieren. Das unser Urlaub so gelungen ist, liegt in großem Maß auch an dieser Wohnung, sie war ein bißchen wie ein Zuhause. Es war unser fünfter Aufenthalt auf Madeira und wir werden sicherlich wiederkommen. Nochmals herzlichen Dank an Tobi , und gute Besserung.

The apartment is located in a central position with ocean views that offer sightings of fishing boats and cruise ships.The open aspect of the terrace is a great platform not only for sun bathing and relaxed dining, but also to enjoy the night sky and especially the spectacular fireworks display staged every New Year’s Eve.

There is easy access to the island's road system via the express-ways connecting to all parts of the Island, including the airport which is only twenty minutes away.

Access by car to the City is five minutes and there is a bus stop on the door step. Walking into town is a pleasurable twenty minute downhill stroll, however, the return is mostly uphill and best left to a bus or taxi.

The area is well served with local shops and bars, the local branch of ‘Frutas & Legumes’ shop will reveal a stunning selection of the freshest fruit & vegetables on offer anywhere, in addition they now have a fresh meat counter and a general grocery range, including wines and beers.

Other Activities: Pestana casino park hotel , with its casino, and music shows, please ask for details.
