In the neigbourhood of Sao Marthinio, we rented this apartment for one week in November 2015. Our host, Hugo, was in close contact with us before our arrival, assuring us that everything was ok. A very clean,comfortable and modern apartment, two bedrooms and with a huge terrass outside! We realy enjoined staying there. 3 minutes to walk to the bus, and in about 10 minutes,we were in central Funchal.
The best,however, was the quiet area,just the Atlantic ocean to be heard by the nearby cliffs.
