1-bed Loft Superior Suite in beautiful character Babosas Village Apartments

Funchal, Portugal



Beautifully refurbished spacious 1-bedroomed apartments in a character property in the heart of romantic Monte surrounded by the world renown gardens, with easy access to Funchal.

Located amongst the famous gardens of Monte, in the heart of this romantic and lush village in the hills above Funchal, Babosas Village is a beautifully furnished character property with eight spacious 1-bedroom apartments, a restaurant, bar and reception, complemented by personal service from its attentive team led by Ricardo and Sónia.

Once a 19th century hotel which then became a special needs school and has been long closed, the full rebuild and refurbishment, which combines traditional architecture with a contemporary style, has resulted in  spacious  lovely apartments, all with a lounge and kitchenette, separate bedroom, shower-room, air-conditioning/heating and veranda.

The charming Páteo das Babosas restaurant and coffee shop features an indoor section with wood-burner, a large front terrace with views to Funchal and the sea and a separate beautiful traditional covered veranda. Open from 09H00 to 22H00 (last orders at 21H00), it serves breakfast, snacks and hot dishes all day, afternoon teas, and an à la carte evening meal menu.

Perfect for a quiet read or contemplation, there is a large common terrace for guests, with some sun-loungers and seating area and views to Funchal and the sea.

A small reception is there to welcome you on arrival.

Situated on the quaint and narrow street that leads from the Babosas square past the gardens, the famous church and wicker toboggans to the old square, Babosas Village is perfectly located for visiting the Monte gardens and for the surrounding walks, yet with easy access to the capital Funchal via the cable car or public transport.

The Loft Suite can be turned into a 2-bedroomed suite and accommodate up to 4 people by reserving the adjoining Loft Bedroom. As this may be sold separately, you will need to request this reservation separately. The cost of the additional Loft Bedroom is 50% of the cost of the Loft Suite.

The village of Monte, high above the Funchal hills, has long been a favourite for wealthy Madeirans. It was the choice for the first (and only) funicular railway in Madeira, and now for the cable car from Funchal and the famous toboggans. It's lush vegetation, character streets, world renown gardens and timeless old world Quintas makes it appealing to those seeking a more relaxed and slower paced holiday. With a population of over 150,000, Funchal is not only the capital, but also the 'heart' of Madeira and home to many of the islanders. This makes it a busy, chic, cosmopolitan and fun city, full of shops, shopping centres, bars, cafés and a great variety of restaurants and entertainment; a vibrant, cosmopolitan town where historic splendour and breath-taking natural beauty combine with a thoroughly modern atmosphere. It also boasts a colourful covered market, numerous stately old buildings, including an imposing cathedral and a lovely theatre. The city has grown over the years, ascending higher and higher up the mountainsides, resulting in a beautiful display of sparkling white buildings by day and a myriad of glittering lights at night.

Some seven hundred kilometres west of the African coast, Madeira is a stunning mountainous emerald island, lapped by the warm waters of the Gulf Stream. The first island to be discovered by the Portuguese navigators in 1419, Madeira became an important resting place on the long trip to the new world. From these humble beginnings, the holiday trade was formed and this spectacular island, which used to be the favourite place of the rich and famous, is now the preferred choice of all sorts of visitors, from those seeking year-round warm temperatures to nature lovers and sightseers, sports and active enthusiasts of all ages. Culture, history, stunning nature, a myriad of sea and land activities, added to a great foodie scene means Madeira has something for everyone. No matter where you go on the island you are rewarded by fabulous scenery, tiny villages and friendly people. With a population of over 100,000, Funchal is not only the capital, but also the 'heart' of Madeira and home to many of the islanders. This makes it a busy, chic, cosmopolitan and fun city, full of shops, shopping centres, bars, cafés and a great variety of restaurants and entertainment; a vibrant, cosmopolitan town where historic splendour and breath-taking natural beauty combine with a thoroughly modern atmosphere.

    Thank you for your kind words! We're delighted that you enjoyed the ambience of our establishment and found it modern and chic. It's wonderful to hear that you appreciated our freshly made breakfasts. Our team strives to provide excellent service, and we're thrilled that you found them absolutely friendly and helpful. We're glad you enjoyed our beautiful rooms and considered our place one of the nicest on your tour. Your satisfaction is our utmost priority, and we look forward to welcoming you back in the future!
    The general operation of the hotel is fantastic! You will be welcomed with a smile and free drink. We have been pampered daily by the staff with even personal touches! And the food... FENOMENABLE!! What a lovely restaurant they have! Breakfast was every day in order and every day different! We will definitely be back next year! Thanks to everyone on the team to give us the best holiday ever! Everything was just perfect! If I'm forced to give up one less point Then it's the way to the hotel. Due to its location you must of course climb through winding roads, but these are all perfectly maintained and very accessible. It's just slower.

    It sounds like you had an absolutely amazing stay! The warm welcome, personal touches from the staff, and phenomenal food truly set the tone for a fantastic holiday. The variety in the daily breakfast must have been a delightful treat, and it's wonderful to hear that you'll be returning next year. While the winding roads to the hotel might slow things down a bit, it's great to know they are well-maintained and accessible. Thank you for sharing your experience, and kudos to the entire team for making your holiday perfect!
    Loved our stay. Made it super easy to start day with an amazing breakfast and view. Supper there was also delicious if time was an issue you. Committing to this place essentially commits you to bus or cab rides due to proximity to town, but it is well worth it.

    Thank you very much for your comments.

    Tolle Unterkunft am Berg mit Blick auf Stadt, Hafen und Meer, ruhig gelegen. Die Seilbahn und Bushaltestelle, um problemlos in die Stadt zu gelangen, sind vor der Haustür. Außergewöhnlich leckeres und reichhaltiges Frühstück, das gesamte Personal ist außerordentlich freundlich und immer hilfsbereit. Das Restaurant ist auch sehr empfehlenswert, wird auch von Gästen von außerhalb rege besucht. Außer der Karte werden auch Specials angeboten. Wir hatten die Superior Suite im Dachgeschoss, riesig groß und top ausgestattet.

    Freundliche Atmosphäre, schöne Zimmer, etwas ab vom Schuss

    Das Zimmer (Suite mit Küche) war großzügig, modern eingerichtet und sehr sauber. Die Küche hätte noch etwas mehr Kochutensilien haben können, für ein paar Tage geht es aber auch so. Das Frühstück war jeden Tag ein bisschen anders, aber immer super. Das Personal war sehr aufmerksam und freundlich. Man hat eine schöne Aussicht auf Funchal und das Meer, jedoch ist die Anfahrt recht mühsam mit dem Auto. Es fährt zwar regelmäßig ein Bus, dies dauert jedoch noch länger.

    Excellent location; fantastic staff; clean and very comfortable - we booked a superior room.

    From booking in on arrival to checking out the staff could not have been more helpful and friendly. Ricardo and his team have excellent customer service skills. The breakfast was fantastic value for money - more of a feast of everything in season , and homemade bread and cakes. Evening meals in the restaurant on the 2 occasions we ate there were also excellent

    Tout est là ! L'emplacement sur les hauteurs de Funchal , la propreté et le confort de la suite (41) parfaitement équipée, la gentillesse et l'attention de tout le personnel. Le petit déjeuner est copieux et parfait! L'équipe nous a même préparé le petit pique nique pour le jour du départ. Parking sur place et nombreuses activités autour. Nous reviendrons vite !

    Мы жили в полулюксе - номер великолепный, чистый, отель открылся всего 2 года назад, вид из окон на долину и море. В номере есть все необходимое для самостоятельного приготовления еды. Рядом вход в сад Монте, канатная дорога в ботанический сад, точка посадки на тобоганы.

    Большое спасибо за ваши комментарии, и мы рады, что вам понравилась деревня Бабосас. Мы очень сожалеем, что вы потеряли 2 ночи на Мадейре, но это было связано с погодой, которую мы не контролируем
    Some times you can be so happy!!

    It is all in the details and all the details were spot on. A wonderful coming home feeling from the minute we arrived. Thank you so much for a great holiday and making new Friends.

    Super Lage, tolles Hotel und empfehlenswertes Restaurant

    Das Hotel liegt direkt an der Bergstation der Seilbahn und befindet sich in einer angenehmen Umgebung. Das Hotel selbst ist neu. Unsere Suite war exzellent ausgestattet (hatte aber keinen Balkon, den wir aber auch nicht vermisst haben). Bad, Betten, Ausstattung, Sauberkeit. Alles Top. Das Hotel bietet ein super Frühstuck an, dass wir jeden Tag genutzt haben. Es empfiehlt sich aber auch, dort zu essen denn im Vergleich zu den "Tourifallen" in der Stadt wird hier sehr gutes Essen zu einem vernünftigen Preis serviert (Wir können Salte, Steaks, Pizza und Fisch empfehlen da selbst getestet). Alle "Tripadvisor-Champions" an der Fressmeile der Stadt waren unseres Erachtens nicht konkurrenzfähig (ein hochgelobtes Fischrestaurant haben wir selbst getestet: Fades Essen mit einfallslosen Beilagen zu relativ hohem Preis). Dass das Hotel auf dem Berg liegt ist eher von Vorteil als von Nachteil. Der Ausblick ist sehr schön.

    Beautiful spot. Comfortable apartment.

    The bed was really comfortable. The apartment was a minty green colour which was really nice. The paintings on the wall were pretty. It was really spacious. It was right next to the Jardim which is gorgeous. It was next to some hikes and there were cable cars either side of it. We would have liked to stay longer.

    Charmantes, stilvolles kleines Hotel in ruhiger Lage, familiär geführt.

    Hervorragendes Frühstück, sehr gut war das frische Obst und die hausgemachten Kuchen - unbedingt mit Frühstück buchen!! Das Ambiente des Hauses war einfach zum Wohlfühlen, klein und individuell, Ricardo und Sonia kümmern sich persönlich um die Gäste, die Gärten von Monte in der Nähe, Ruhe außer Mittags im Restaurant wenn die Touristen wie die Heuschrecken einfallen. Im Restaurant kann man gut essen (Abends sehr stilvoll mit offenem Kamin!!). Besser kein Auto (bei den Straßen) es gibt einen Bus 22 vor der Haustür und 2 weitere Busse in Laufnähe plus Seilbahn. Von Lido-Tours wird man im Babosas abgeholt (Inseltouren).

    Eine Tolle Unterkunft

    Die Unterkunft hat uns sehr gefallen. Wenn man morgens aufsteht, hat man super Blick auf die Insel bis zum Wasser. Man kann die Gondelfahrten vom Zimmer aus beobachten. Viele Attraktionen sind in der nähe des Hotels. Das Frühstück war die Krönung des Tages. Der selbsgemachte Bananenkuchen ist ein Traum.
