About Maria Franca-Landure

I live in the Cotswolds with my husband and two children (10 and 13) and Bella our dog. We have lived in the area for 20 years but I was born in Madeira.

Maria Franca-Landure purchased this apartment in 1996

Why Maria Franca-Landure chose São Martinho

Madeira is where I was born, I love going back there every year with my family. We enjoy the wonderful views, all year round warm and bright weather, the food and many holiday activities the island has to offer.

We also enjoy break aways to Porto Santo with its idyllic beaches.

What makes this apartment unique

The area is far enough from the crowds, but close enough to local shops, the centre of Funchal and the promenade.

The apartment has a warm home feel, with bright rooms and a wonderful views over the Funchal bay.

Good base for exploring the beautiful island of Madeira

  • 5 of 5

Well equipped clean comfortable accommodation enjoying fantastic views over Funchal. Quiet location away from the main centre of Funchal but ideally placed for catching the bus and exploring the sights of the city and surrounding areas. Two bakeries/restaurants and a small supermarket within easy walking.

Lovely well equipped appartment in Funchal

  • 5 of 5

The location of the appartment was ideal for walking into Funchal and all the visitor attractions.The appartment was clean and well maintained. I would recommend the appartment to relatives and friends. The only downside was that it went off cold at night and needed additional bedding or throw to put on the bed. I would recommend the circular bus trip from Funchal through the mountains to Porto Moniz and back.

Stunning views of sea and hills

  • 5 of 5

This is the fifth time we have stayed in this apartment and as usual really enjoyed. I just love Madeira especially the views from here. Apartment is very comfortable plenty of towels bedding etc everything you need and if there is a problem Toby is always very helpful. Underground parking or if you prefer a bus in to town just outside gates of apartment. Bakery cafes and minimarket just across the road.

Getting away from November in the UK

  • 4 of 5

A great holiday in a lovely place. Warm and sunny weather, little breeze and just a drop or two of rain. Comfortable, convenient location, near to food shops and restaurants, and with beautiful and interesting views. Nelio is a very friendly and helpful manager, What's not to like?!

A wonderful apartment.

  • 5 of 5

> Dear Maria and Christophe


> We have now returned to the UK having spent a great time in your apartment.

> It was well furnished, very comfortable, and the private off road parking very welcome.

> The location , with views, is ideal; the bakery over the road is a gem, and how convenient is the number 8 bus.

> Please pass on our thanks to Tobi who met us at the airport, and gave us such good local information.

> Thank you for letting us use the apartment, and we hope to return in the future - assuming that it will still be available.


> With kind regards

> Derek and Edna Clarke

We enjoyed our stay very much. The apartment was well-equipped with a fantastic view over Funchal and the sea. The sea and the city are within walking distance and there is a bus-stop, a small grocery store and a fantastic restaurant nearby the apartment.
