Updated: 22-Nov-2016
Apartment in Funchal, Madeira South Coast, Madeira - The Apartment Is In A Fantastic Position Being So Close To So Many Attractions

Grand holiday in Funchal

  • 4 of 5

The property was welcoming and home from home with all facilities required and good spacious bright rooms. Also very central to nice gardens, good shopping centre and lots of good restaurants. Near to the Marina, with a variety of boat trips available. We loved the trip on the galleon style ship Santa Maria, saw many pilot whales and those who wanted could dive in for a swim. We went on the cable car to Monte and enjoyed the amazing views looking down to Funchal. We made our own way by bus to Calheta, very scenic journey round mountains and coast to sandy imported beaches. Had a lovely day in the sunshine.

Elsa and her mum were very warm and helpful and we would recommend the property to friends and family.

Central Location

  • 4 of 5

Elsa picked us up from the airport, the flat was very convenient in the centre of town close to Old Town, market, all the buses, supermarket and all amenities. The flat was very clean with everything we needed. So many good restaurants in the area we didn't need to cater for ourselves. I would highly recommend any of Elsa apartment's. She was so helpful

Lovely Madeira

  • 4 of 5

We had a very enjoyable stay, loved the island and enjoyed sampling the local food specialities. Walked the levadas but unfortunately the weather was rather mixed so mist spoiled the views.

The apatment was very well equipped,clean, comfortable beds, good central location which can make it a little noisy at weekends.

My only suggestions would be that it would be nice to have a fan in the second bedroom.

Elsa the owner was very helpful and gave us a good welcome.

must stay

  • 5 of 5

The apartment is very comfortable and very well equipped. We stayed for 2 months in January and February and it really was like home from home. The position is ideal for exploring the wonderful town Funchal, right in the centre by the beautiful gardens and no hills to climb. All amenities are within a stone's throw. Elsa is very helpful and nothing is too much trouble. We look forward to our next stay.

A fantastic apartment in a very central location.

  • 5 of 5

A fantastic apartment in a very central location made this an excellent base for exploring Funchal and Madeira. Elsa and her mother made us feel very welcome and gave us lots of tips. We stayed here with our 2.5 year old daughter and had a great time.
