We were unable to book into the apartment as advertised, but Nataly arranged an alternative flat for us, pretty much exactly the same as the one advertised. She also arranged transport to and from the airport.
The flat itself was very comfortably set out, with a well stocked kitchen, spacious dining/living area and comfortable bedrooms. It got quite hot in the evenings, but we were aware of that before leaving. This was easily solved by opening the windows!
The taxi rank and supermarket is only a five minute walk away. There are copious restaurants only a short walk down the hill in old town.
All in all we had a great time and were sad to leave. Thoroughly recommended.
Have never enjoyed such comfort and space in a holiday rental before. Nataly was wonderful and very helpful. Everything worked properly - the TV, DVD Player, the washing machine, big fridge etc. The beds perfect. Close enough to the centre of town - a short distance to walk without strain. Loved every minute of our holiday there and the sheer luxury of this beautiful apartment. Cannot recommend it highly enough.
The apartment itself was beautiful, well furnished, spacious, equipped with everything you could require. The photos on tripadvisor are a combination of 2 apartments in the same block. The only niggle for us was that the apartment on the higher floor was not available and so we opted for the one on level 1. The balcony only had sun for about an hour around midday and the view was of a small piece of grass and the walls of the building next door.
The location is within 10 minutes walk (15+ coming back uphill) of all the amenities mentioned in the blurb and including the main tourist area for restaurants in the old town. Most tourists seem to head for accommodation in the area to the west of old Funchal. If you want sea views you are probably better heading there.
Situated only a 10 min walk from the Old Town of Funchal this apartment ticks all the boxes. Plenty of space for the 5 of us, two bathrooms, wifi, tv and dvd for movie nights after a long day walking and exploring and a fully equipped kitchen. An ideal base for either a family or a couple. We didn't hire a car but the building has a gate for security and off road parking.

i thoroughly enjoyed my three weeks in the apartment, it was so quiet and peaceful and yet handy for the old town. I was by myself most of the time and was a bit concerned it might not be close to town but it was perfect, and met all my needs. The sunny balcony, the cosy settee, the more than adequate kitchen, lovely, would recommend.
