Description

TDP Alojamentosaude Logos 07 THIS APARTMENT IS CERTIFIED CLEAN AND SAFE BY THE PORTUGUESE TOURIST OFFICE

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.

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.

Type B Superior Apartment, sitting area (long sofa-bed and one armchair, dining table and 4 chairs, cable flat-screen TV), kitchenette (2-ring hob, microwave oven, fridge/freezer), private balcony, separate bedroom (two single beds), wardrobe area, en-suite shower room (single washbasin, toilet, walk-in shower), shared veranda with table and chairs.

Nearby
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.

Madeira
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.

    Absolutely Exceptional!

    - The room was very large and clean with a small, well-equipped kitchen, a shared terrace as well as private balcony. - The location is excellent, in Monte, close to the cable car with a direct connection to Funchal's city centre (but 16 euros both ways). You may want to prefer bus 21 or 22 which depart next to the hotel and charge 1.95 euros for reaching the city centre in 10 to 15 minutes. It is also well located if you like hiking, since you are on the way from Funchal to the famous hike starting from Ariero and close to more local hiking routes. - The view from the balcony/terrace as well as from the restaurant is incredible. - The food! Try the local dishes and ask the staff if they would not have some squids or octopus (both highly recommended) hidden somewhere. They also serve a wide range of pizzas and pasta if you travel with children who prefer more 'conventional' dishes. - Breakfast is exceptional (tea or coffee, cheese, ham, a plate of fresh fruit, eggs, vegetables, toasts, a piece of cake, etc.) - The staff are very nice and do everything they can to find solutions and make you feel good. They even offered to drive me to Ariero for my day hike (30 minutes away by car) without charging me anything! - The value for money remains excellent. Prices are still very reasonable, considering the quality of service.

    Best apartment stay!

    When I first arrived I was greeted by Hugo who was very nice and welcoming. Hugo greeted us with a drink which was a pleasant surprise. He then showed us the attached restaurant, Pátio das Babosas, which is also an amazing place. After he showed us to our apartment which overlooks downtown Funchal. With the amazing views and close proximity to the cable car, Monte Palace gardens, restaurant, and wicker basket toboggan ride, you couldn't ask for a better place to stay. I would highly recommend this place to anyone looking to stay in Madeira.

    Alles perfekt
    Alles sehr sehr sauber und modern eingerichtet. Das Personal ist außergewöhnlich hilfsbereit und freundlich. Das Frühstück grandios. Man kommt damit über den ganzen Tag. Vor allem vielfrisches Obst. Auch das Restaurant ist zu empfehlen. Große Portionen! Die Lage ist weit oben und man muß viele Serpentinen bewältigen. Außerdem um die 5 Grad kälter als unten. Der sehenswerte Tropical Garden Monte Palace ist gleich nebenan. Unbedingt empfehlenswert.

    Un havre de paix, luxe calme et volupté

    Un vrai appartement dans un hôtel. Les chambres sont meublées avec beaucoup de goût, la propreté impeccable, la vue splendide, et l'emplacement, à la croisée des téléphériques, juste génial. Le petit-déjeuner sublime est servi en un tour de main sur la terrasse ensoleillée le matin, le restaurant est super et on peut se faire livrer en chambre si on ne veut pas cuisiner. La cuisine étant toutefois parfaitement équipée et fonctionnelle, une vraie cuisine, pas un "coin repas" prétexte comme on voit parfois. Les deux pièces sont aussi bien séparées, ce qui est appréciable avec un petit enfant pour continuer à vivre une fois qu'il est couché. Il y a plein de rangements dans ce qui est plutôt un dressing qu'un couloir. Et, surtout, un vrai service de palace : tout est parfaitement maîtrisé et ce sans en avoir l'air, dans la détente. Le matin, vous ne commandez rien, tout arrive, juste ce qu'il faut. Merci à toute l'équipe, Sonia, Ricardo, Joao, André, Hugo, Antonio, la femme de ménage qui chante d'une si belle voix :) et tous les autres dont les supers cuisiniers. Vous avez su répondre à toutes nos demandes (le joli lit bébé, le repas du 25, l'arrivée et le départ tardifs, etc.), et nous propulser dans la dimension de la détente et du repos, ce dont nous avions bien besoin ! Merci aussi pour toutes vos attentions et le magnifique panier que vous nous avez offert à Noël. Nous avons découvert l'île de Madère avec bonheur et apprécié de retrouver Monte le soir, avec ce calme dès le téléphérique fermé et après le dernier bus, et cette effervescence sympathique la journée dans ce joli village, ses carreiros, etc. Il n'y a pas de voiture dans la rue sur laquelle donne l'hôtel, ce qui est appréciable aussi avec un enfant.

    Un très bel endroit avec une vue magnifique sur Funchal et l'océan.

    Le petit déjeuner est très copieux et très varié (fruits frais, produits salés et sucrés). Les chambres sont vraiment confortables. La nuit, l'hôtel et son environnement sont très calmes. Le personnel est très à l'écoute des clients et toujours disponible pour conseiller ou rendre service.

    We loved our stay at Babosas Village! We appreciated the quiet neighborhood and loved returing to Monte from our daily trips (rental car recommended). The staff is very friendly and the breakfast just fantastic. We hope to return to Madeira and Babosas Village!

    Really nice little apartment, fully equipped with everything you need. We stayed for 5 nights, excellent customer care, great breakfast and very good restaurant where we dined each night. Got great service from all the staff- Sonia, Hugo, Andre, Antonio, Ricardo to name a few! Madeira is blessed nice people, calm and gorgeous views and nature. Took a 1 day trip to Porto Santo to enjoy crystal clear ocean and sandy beach.

    Wonderful.

    Everything. The room was modern, spacious, had a comfortable bed, a great shower and was very clean. The meals that we did eat in the restaurant were excellent and we think were good value for money. We liked the location, but some people may not realize how far Funchal center is from the property. That said the bus journeys up and down the hill into Funchal are not to be missed. Finally, a mention about ever single member of staff that we met during our week long stay, They really were the most friendly, helpful (nothing was too much trouble) group of people that we have ever met in any of the hotels/apartments that we have ever stayed in.

    Nice place with a view! And with easy access...

    This inn is located near by the Funchal cable car, and walking distance from the botanic garden´s cable car. There is a bus stop near by as well. So, although it's a bit far from downtown Funchal, there are plenty transportation options, and easy as well. We didn't have any problems moving around... Besides that, is simply amazing waking up with that view! Nice rooms, with a little kitchen and living-room. Nice restaurant and breakfest services as well (not included).

    Can't wait to go back.

    We give Babosas Village this high rating because of the following. All the staff, Ricardo, Hugo, Andre, Sonia, the lovely cleaning woman and all the kitchen staff are SUPERB! They are true professionals and work very well together. Anyone would be happy to have such a great team working for them. The meals that we had in the restaurant were wonderful, both professionally prepared and presented. We decided to book a superior apartment, which was very modern and spacious and spotlessly clean. One of the best places I have ever stayed in.

    Acomodações super confortáveis, novas e arrumadas. Pequeno apartamento com cozinha e sala, quarto e banheiro. Valeu muito a pena, melhor do que esperávamos. O monte é um pouco distante do centro, porém o Babosas fica muito perto do teleférico e de um ponto de onibus, além de possuir estacionamento.

    Hemos pasado unos días de vacaciones en Babosas Village y volvemos como de un pequeño paraíso. El hotel ofrece vistas estupendas hacia el mar y montaña, pero además las habitaciones familiares son preciosas y muy confortables. Si hablamos de la cocina...no sé por donde empezar, je je, esos platos de variada fruta fresca, bollitos, mermeladas, jamón, bizcocho, té, café....vistas al mar...unos desayunos geniales, igual que las cenas; la cocina es estupenda ¡¡ Nos hemos sentido como en casa, con personas a las que les gusta su trabajo y eso no tiene precio. La situación del hotel, para nosotros ha sido excelente, ya que buscamos lugares tranquilos y próximos a montaña.
