You will be living in the real city not the hotel tourist zone located several miles away to the west of the city centre. With Madeira celebrating the 600th anniversary of its discovery in 2019 this is the perfect place to stay and sample the delights of this magical island. This recently converted luxury attic apartment 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 pick and sample several different exotic fruits (depending upon season) from the owners courtyard garden below (accessed by your own private spiral staircase). There is even a small secluded barbeque in the courtyard garden below the apartment where you can enjoy the early afternoon sun, or if you prefer you can just sit and and relax in the cooling shelter of the trees & vines. You can even bring down your cooked food & wine and dine alfresco in the evening (garden table & chairs are available). The trees and vines also provide a welcome retreat on those late summer days when it sometimes just gets too hot to do anything other than relax with a good book or a cool drink. Remember the solar UV levels in Madeira are the same in March as they are back in the UK in June! Funchal's UV levels in mid summer reach extremes like 11 or 12, so bringing with you some sun lotion is highly recommended. Even in late Autumn or early spring some protection is advised if you have not been accustomed to the sun for several months. The resident owners below will always give you a warm welcome and can provide you with lots of information, advice and help to make sure this is a holiday to remember. Our intention is to make you feel you are real guests in our home and hope that you will return again and again as much missed friends. Tourist License / Licencia de turismo N °: 50709/ALMore

About the neighborhood
Funchal has a fantastic historical heritage, she is over 500 years old but you still have all the conveniences of a modern city. Wonderful museums, beautiful old streets, magnificent churches, pretty squares plus, if you need to buy something, Funchal has 3 modern shopping centres, (2 also have cinemas) where you can shop till you drop or watch a movie (all Hollywood films simply have Portuguese sub-titles). Take a bus or cable car to one or both of the world famous gardens of Monte and the Funchal Botanical gardens overlooking the city, (both are visible from your balcony), or just stroll down the road to enjoy the gardens of Quinta das Cruzes, the English Church, the Jardim Municipal and Santa Catarina park. Play golf on the beautiful Palheiro (18 hole) or Santo da Serra (27 hole) cours...
Getting around
Funchal has a very good public bus service and you can use the number 15 to get up to the apartment from the seafront if you do not feel up to the walk. There is also an island wide bus service run by a seperate company which allows you to reach most points of interest around the island. You can also hire a taxi for the day if you do not want to rely on busses or wish to go more off the beaten track. Several companies also operate 'jeep safari' type trips around the island and are great if you want to do a one way Levada walks, they drop you off at the start and are waiting for you at the end, usually with a guide escorting you on the walk.
