The apartment is stunning, it is very new, spotlessly clean and equipped with high end furnishing. The rooms are large and stylish the main bed is huge. The people who manage the letting (Marcia) are helpful and responsive. and arranged air port pick up which was excellent (we were delayed but driver was waiting) . The terrace / balcony (more balcony really) is huge furnished with 6 seater dining set and 3 piece wicker style suite, AND comes with a panoramic view over Funchal down to the marina.
Madeira is very hilly, the apartment is up hill about 1 mile from town center the last part of the climb is steeply up hill. We were a lot fitter by the time we returned home, a cab costs about 4E. All in all - if you can manage the hill its a cracking property and excellent value at the price we paid (around £500 for the week).
