About the property

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

2 bedroom apartment with a great location downtown Funchal by the beautiful gardens and no hills to climb. All amenities are within a stone's throw.

Apartment in central Funchal

  • 5 of 5

Very clean, well furnished and well equipped second floor apartment in central Funchal. Ideally situated for nearby beautiful garden, excellent supermarket, buses, marina and cable car. Fantastic architecture in Funchal and a beautiful city to explore. Elsa, the owner, was very helpful and informative. Would highly recommend visiting the botanical gardens and Monte Palace Gardens.

Eine sehr gute Wohnung!

Sehr schöne Wohnung in top Lage! Sauber, alles vorhanden. Wenn einer meint hier wäre es laut, ja stimmt zum Teil- man darf nicht vergessen, man ist voll in der Stadtmitte und Teil des nachtsleben. Für uns auch mit 2 Kindern war absolut in Ordnung!Elsa ist eine tolle Person, hilfsbereit, hat uns guten Tipps gegeben.! Sehr schön, dass wir sie kennen gelernt haben! Würden wieder kommen

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.
