Description

Cambridge RIGHT

Comfortable And Quiet 2+1 Bedroom Apartment in Funchal Centre


About the property

CAMBRIDGE

Two Top Floor Peaceful Apartments in Funchal Centre Both with Two Balconies: Cambridge Left and Cambridge Right. They have recently been restored. They are very quiet although they are in the centre of Funchal. For larger groups both units can be rented together. There is an adjoining door connecting both apartments, living room to living room. So the adjacent apartments are available individually or are ideal for four couples holidaying together whilst enjoying their own place. Each apartment has 2 bedrooms, 2 bathrooms and 2 balconies with nice views of the Madeira landscape and the sea. The apartment RIGHT has another small bedroom with a sofa double bed. Two bedrooms have doors opening onto one of the balconies with views over the rooftops, the mountains, the church and a glimpse of the sea. They are situated in Funchal Centre, just behind La Vie Shopping Centre including a 9h/24h pharmacy and a supermarket opened every day of the week. Even though the apartment is close to the centre it is quiet in the evenings and through the night. 10 minutes flat walking distance from the Cathedral, the Park, the Ritz Café, the Theatre Café or the Marina where most buses stop. Car parking is in the street by pay meters or in a non-expensive secure car park in the building next door.

About Elsa

I am a teacher, mother of two and I live in Funchal, 10 minutes from this apartment.

I hope you will feel at home in my comfortable apartment, and that you will enjoy the beautiful Madeira.

Elsa purchased this apartment in 2010

Why Elsa chose Funchal

The apartment is in a fantastic location in Funchal Centre and at the same time in a quiet place. There is every facility we may need and are surrounded by everyday local life but only minutes away from La Vie Shopping Centre with supermarket, bakery and taxi rank and only a 5 minute walk from the Marina, beautiful parks, the Cathedral and restaurants. It is also very sunny and with two balconies with views over the rooftops, the church and the sea.

Guestbook comments from the owner

We really enjoyed our stay at Elsa's place! The apartment is very clean, spacious and nicely furnished. The kitchen is very well equipped and we enjoyed preparing breakfast and dinner and eating on the terrace with view over Funchal and the Atlantic. The apartment is located on a quiet street in the middle of Funchal, in walking distance to restaurants, bakeries, grocery stores and the sea. Thank you very much for our nice stay!

Extremely nice accomodation in Funchal

  • 5 of 5

Elsa is a lovely host and gave us good tips for our stay in Funchal. The apartment is very roomy with a nice interior and a perfectly equipped kitchen. A shopping centre including a large supermarket is in the direct neighbourhood.

Well situated bright and airy apartment

  • 4 of 5

The apartment was located close to supermarkets and restaurants, but only a 15 min stroll to the old town (more restaurants) and marina. Very well-equipped kitchen and spacious living area. 2 bathrooms - one with bath. Two balconies (sun in the mornings). Some traffic noise at front, but not enough to disturb.

Elsa welcomed us and took the time to show us what was where in Funchal.

We would like to go back and explore more of the island. Explored Funchal in a week - street music, history , and so many flowers and fruits. Monte is a must as is the market.

Would recommend this property - only 4 stars because I never give anything 5!!

Elsa's apartment was homely and spacious.

  • 5 of 5

A charming,cosy apartment in an ideal location if you want to be in the centre of Funchal yet in a quiet location. Minutes walk away from the centre and restaurants. It was nice to meet Elsa, and we appreciated her excellent communication both before the trip and when we arrived. The apartment has everything you need for a relaxing visit. Thank you Elsa.

Fantastic!

This is a very nice apartment in the heart of Funchal. Easy to walk to everything yet quiet. Well equipped and comfortable. Elsa is a really nice woman; helpful and able to give suggestions and advice for what to see and do. Highly recommend this apartment (and the others that she manages in different areas of Funchal).
