My partner and I just stayed in this Funchal apartment for a week and can highly recommend it! It's very comfortable and tastefully decorated, with a views of the town and sea from the little balcony. We didn't have a car and managed just fine on foot - 10-15 minutes' walk takes you down into the town centre, with plenty of great restaurants serving very generous portions!
There's a little cafe/bar just underneath the apartment complex serving lovely lunches, great coffee and delicious portuguese custard tarts - we made this a regular starting point before heading out for the day. Next to the cafe is a great little shop stacked to the rafters with fresh produce and excellent wine.
The kitchen is well equipped and we cooked in a couple of days, relaxing on the comfy sofa in the living room.
Jorge gave us a very warm welcome, coming to collect us from the airport and giving us a mini tour of Funchal centre in his car to help us get our bearings. On arrival at the apartment he presented is with a traditional cake and liquors made by his mother-in-law! He also dropped us at the airport at the end of our stay - so kind.
One of the things we liked best about this apartment was being away from the tourist/hotel district closer to the harbour. The area has a lovely calm and relaxed feeling whilst being in easy reach of things - perfect!
We would certainly stay here again.
