    Condo/Apartment – 
    1 Bedroom, 1 Bathroom, Sleeps 2
    Located just a few minutes walk from many of Funchal's most popular 'must see places' you are living in the real city not the hotel tourist zone located several miles away from the city centre.
    This new luxury attic conversion has breathtaking views of Funchal city, the Harbour and out over the Atlantic towards the Desert Islands. It is the perfect place for relaxing whilst enjoying the annual fireworks shows every Saturday in June and of course spectacular city wide display celebrating the New Year.
    You can watch (and often even hear) the daily comings and goings of the many cruise ships which visit this spectacular island plus the assorted little pleasure boats that sail in and out often 2 or 3 times a day.
    Fully furnished for that perfect self catering holiday you can even...

We spent a week in the apartment in June. We have been to Madeira previously and stayed in the Monumental Lido area. It was much better being very close to the middle of Funchal. The town centre was a few minutes' walk down a steep hill. The owner was very friendly and helpful, but also unobtrusive. He provided us with... more

Many thanks for your kind review, I am please to hear you prefered our location to the Monumental Lido area (I have to admit I do agree with you & it is one of many reasons we chose this historical area of Funchal to live in over the modern concrete apartments further out of town) I look forward to maybe... more

The roof top terrace with its lovely sitting area is worth the trip! Walk down the steep street to a tropical park and spend hours in the stylish (yet inexpensive) tea gardens. We... more

We were looking for somewhere to stay other than one of the large hotels within walking distance of the centre of Funchal - this was a great choice. Located 10 minutes' walk up the (steep) hill, the apartment provides fantastic views of the harbour and coastline. Handy for shops and restaurants, with some local convenience stores a couple of minutes'... more

Management response:

Many thanks for your comprehensive review, it is always a pleasure to know that our guests enjoyed their stay and nice to have you confirm that what you saw on the website was what you found when you arrived. Just a note there are several routes back up to the apartment, some not quite so steep as others but maybe... more
