About N.Figueiredo

I'm a Madeira lover and they would like to share my apartment with you in order you can have the best holidays as possible here!

Why N.Figueiredo chose Funchal

It is an amazing apartment in an unique location by the sea! It has everything you need for a comfortable and relaxing stay taking profit of the mild climate of the island and its amazing view (the best views of the complex).

What makes this apartment unique

Very spacious apartment (130 m2!) with a private balcony and a private rooftop terrace over the sea (it is really neaby the sea!). A very comfortable and modern apartment in a quiet and unique location!

Guestbook comments from the owner

"We really enjoyed Madeira and the apartment was exactly what we needed. Thank you also for all you did for us, your help made the holiday much more enjoyable and we got to see much more of the island with your recommendations. We will definitely return to Madeira - and when we do, we'll get in touch." Jerry and Andrea (England)



"We all really enjoyed staying at the apartment. It was wonderful to look out every morning and see, smell and hear the sea, not something we can do often living near London! Thank you for your help with making our short break run so smoothly. We had some lovely memorable moments, not least the little fishes in the lido tickling our feet! Madeira is a lovely island and hopefully we will come back for another visit some day and enjoy more Maderian hospitality." So Lin, Tony and Jay (England)

Wonderful Apartment & Great Jeep Tour

  • 5 of 5

Spacious, spotlessly clean, unrivalled views, wonderful roof terrace, well equipped kitchen, very comfortable beds & nice big bathrooms. We spent a great week in Niara's apartment. She is a great host, responds quickly, has lots of good restaurant suggestions and is very helpful. We had a really relaxing holiday in this apartment. The pool is very clean. Highlight of our trip was jeep tour with Miguel. We booked this directly with Niara. Miguel was a great guide and our teenage daughters really enjoyed his tour. We got some fantastic photos and we would really recommend this to you. We hope to return again in November.

If you enjoy seafood - try 'By the sea' just out of the car park gates on the right.

Forum shopping centre nearby has a very good supermarket.

Easy to take a bus in to the centre of Funchal.

This is the nicest apartment we have stayed in

  • 5 of 5

The apartment is bright, clean, quiet and spacious. Niara, the host is friendly and has plenty of local knowledge and so can answer any questions.The balcony and roof terrace have fantastic views. If you want a quiet location with only the sound of the sea to lull you to sleep each night then this is the place for you.

Lovely apartment

  • 5 of 5

Me and my husband came for New Year's Eve which is well worth a trip the fireworks are a amazing. The apartment is fantastic all we needed very spacious by the sea it's about a 30 - 40 min walk into Funchal which we did every day then got a taxi back which was about 10 to 12 euros . Lido is about 20 mins walk with lots of restaurants and bars there's a great Indian there called tajmahal . Niara was very helpful nothing was to much trouble she arranged are transfer from the airport which I would recommend she told us lots of places to eat and drink we had a lovely time would stay again .

Great apartment in great location

  • 5 of 5

We have just spent a most enjoyable 10 days in this lovely apartment - falling asleep to the sound of the sea. Everything we needed for 4 of us, lovely to have the balcony (and the roof terrace) to enjoy the lovely November weather. Can thoroughly recommend taking a jeep safari with the owner's partner, Miguel - brilliant way of seeing the island and finding out all about it. Great tips from both of them for local restaurants, many within walking distance of the apartment. So looking forward to coming back again some time.

Owner's Response: Thank you very much for your kind words! It was all my pleasure! In fact November is a good month in Madeira island, with a good weather along the south coast! (even today, November 20th, feels like summer time with 23 C!). It was a great pleasure have met all of you and I looking much forward to your next visit too!

A first class apartment in a lovely location

  • 5 of 5

This is a lovely apartment in an equally lovely location. Niara arranged our airport transfers by taxi at a special rate. She was so helpful before and throughout our stay. We loved the local bar where the tables and stools were made from pallets and the fish restaurant next door served great food. Funchal is a short bus ride away and the walk to Camera de Lobos takes about 40 minutes with friendly beach bars on the way. I would highly recommend the apartment and location.

Location

From the Owner

It is an amazing apartment in an unique location by the sea! It has everything you need for a comfortable and relaxing stay taking profit of the mild climate of the island and its amazing view (the best views of the complex).

Activity and Interests

Nearest Airport : Madeira airport at 23 Kilometres Nearest Barpub : Maresia at 5 Metres Nearest Ferry : Funchal Harbour at 6 Kilometres Nearest Golf : Palheiro Golf at 8 Kilometres Nearest Motorway : São Martinho exit at 2 Kilometres Nearest Restaurant : By the Sea at 5 Metres Nearest Beach : Formosa beach at 2 Metres Car: not necessary

Coast/Beach:

Direct access to the beach from the swimming pool area. Walking path along the beach.

If you would like to explore Madeira island and if you are looking for a informal, cultural, relaxed and real way to explore this island paradise... for me the best choice is doing it with my husband Miguel, in his UMM open classic jeep (convertible)... 27 years old… so no air conditioned, automatic windows or doors (nothing automatic!)… and its noisy but loads of fun, trough the old paths!
