Funchal, Madeira, Madeira Islands
Awarded Trip Advisor Excellence certificates for 2017 & 2018 this apartment is located just a few minutes walk from many of Funchal's most popular 'must see places'.
You will be living in the real city not the hotel tourist zone located several miles away to the west of the city centre.
With Madeira celebrating the 600th anniversary of its discovery in 2019 this is the perfect place to stay and sample the delights of this magical island.
This recently converted luxury attic apartment has breathtaking views of Funchal city, the Harbour and out over the Atlantic towards the Desert Islands.

Interaction with guests
Depending upon your choice you will either be met at the airport or the property. The apartment is located on the top floor of our own home so I am usually available to answer questions or provide advice as & when required but of course leave this to you to ask. We provide our guests with a collection of information leaflets maps, bus timetables plus monthly cultural agendas and guide books (Levada walks etc.) to help you make your holiday as enjoyable as possible. This also saves you the weight of having to pack your own guide books unless of course you want to? I am also often be available to take you by car for short drives or even trips around the island should you want but of course this would be up to you to ask.

About the neighbourhood
Funchal has a fantastic historical heritage, she is over 500 years old but you still have all the conveniences of a modern city. Wonderful museums, beautiful old streets, magnificent churches, pretty squares plus, if you need to buy something, Funchal has 3 modern shopping centres, (2 also have cinemas) where you can shop till you drop or watch a movie (all Hollywood films simply have Portuguese sub-titles).
Take a bus or cable car to one or both of the world famous gardens of Monte and the Funchal Botanical gardens overlooking the city, (both are visible from your balcony), or just stroll down the road to enjoy the gardens of Quinta das Cruzes, the English Church, the Jardim Municipal and Santa Catarina park. Play golf on the beautiful Palheiro (18 hole) or Santo da Serra (27 hole) cours...
Getting around
Funchal has a very good public bus service and you can use the number 15 to get up to the apartment from the seafront if you do not feel up to the walk. There is also an island wide bus service run by a seperate company which allows you to reach most points of interest around the island. You can also hire a taxi for the day if you do not want to rely on busses or wish to go more off the beaten track. Several companies also operate 'jeep safari' type trips around the island and are great if you want to do a one way Levada walks, they drop you off at the start and are waiting for you at the end, usually with a guide escorting you on the walk.
