Description

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.

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.

    We're delighted to hear that you had such a positive experience, Katharina! Knowing that you would choose to stay with us again means a lot. Whenever you're ready to return to Madeira, we'll be here to welcome you back with open arms!
    We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at Bobasas, Sonia and staff were so incredibly helpful and accommodating. Babosas Village is conveniently located near the top of the cable carts and only a 30 minute drive to Pico Arieiro, making trips to the mountains or into town simple. Monte gardens are a mere couple of foot steps away. The patios over looking Funchal are nice place to relax in the morning or, evening after a long day. The food and service was outstanding and the rooms clean, comfortable and modern. I would highly recommend Babosas to anyone visiting Madeira, you will not be disappointed by this quaint little gem. A big thank you to everyone at Babosas, we truly appreciate you all. Uma viagem segura para todos.

    Hayden, thank you for taking the time to share your experience at Babosas Village! We're thrilled to hear that you thoroughly enjoyed your stay and that Sonia and our staff provided such helpful and accommodating service. It's fantastic to know that our location near the cable cars and Monte gardens made your trips to the mountains and into town effortless. We're delighted that you found our patios overlooking Funchal to be a relaxing spot and that you enjoyed the outstanding food and service, as well as our clean, comfortable, and modern rooms. Your recommendation means a lot to us, and we're grateful for your kind words. We look forward to welcoming you back to our quaint little gem on your next visit to Madeira!
    Apartamento muito agradável, confortável, espaçoso e bastante limpo. Aliás, a limpeza diária foi uma boa surpresa! Um apontamento muito positivo para os lençóis e toalhas de banho. Situado num local tranquilo, com uma bonita paisagem, está a poucos kms do Funchal. Destacamos também a simpatia de todos os funcionários do Babosas Village (em especial do Hugo, que fez o nosso Check-in). Recomendamos o pequeno-almoço!

    Muito obrigado pelas vossas palavras! Ficamos satisfeitos de que o Babosas village superou as vossas expectativas e que toda a equipa foi bastante simpática. Esperamos voltar a recebê-los num futuro próximo. Obrigado, António

    Groot appartement met prachtig uitzicht. Appartement is bovendien zeer schoon. Daarnaast kun je goed (en niet duur) eten in het restaurant, waarbij Ricardo en Hugo je steeds goed verwelkomen en je niet zullen laten weggaan zonder een lekkere Madeira (dessert)wijn te geven. Overigens is het een uitdagende weg om bij de locatie te komen, maar aan de hand van de tips van Hugo ga je zonder problemen de berg op en af (vraag naar het busrooster en Hugo helpt je verder).

    Merci

    Als wir über die steilen Straßen ankamen, dachte ich ehrlich gesagt, ich habe uns im Gipfelrestaurant der Seilbahn in Monte eingebucht - Riccardo empfing uns herzlich und zeigte uns unsere Wohneinheit mit Terrasse, Küche, Schlafzimmer & Wohnbereich (Kunderschlafbereich) und einem geräumigen Bad - alles super sauber und gepflegt, wie die ganze Anlage. Hervor sticht aber die unglaubliche Umsichtigkeit und Freundlichkeit des Personals, die auch für Vielreisende äußerst ungewöhnlich ist - nämlich auch nie aufdringlich! Der absolute Hammer ist das Frühstück- direkt zum Tisch serviert - jeden Tag Variationen und immer mit viel frischem Obst, Brot und Eivariationen - man sitzt auf der eigens gesperrten Terrasse des Restaurants, welches zudem auch noch empfehlenswert ist. Qualität der Gastfreundschaft ist nicht zu übertreffen!

    Do not hesitate to book this amazing place, the staff are top class, so accommodating and friendly. The apartment bright, airy and very clean with nice welcoming touches. Lovely views over Funchal which can be reached by taking the cable car and the wonderful Monte gardens just round the corner. We did not realize breakfast is included in the price, and what an amazing breakfast too. Fully cooked offering, with fruit & cakes and lovely fresh orange juice. Very convenient they serve food all day with something for every one on the menu. Again a special mention to the staff who were without exception brilliant

    Breakfast amazing. Far more than I could eat! Very helpful and friendly staff. Large modern room with private balcony and access to large terraces. Good view- though one can't see quite over Funchal as one might hope.

    Fijn en verzorgd appartement.

    Mooi appartement! Heel goed verzorgd. Elke dag schoonmaak en nieuwe handdoeken. ( dat vonden wij een beetje overdreven met gedachte voor het milieu) Mooie locatie voor Monte. Wel altijd wat minder warm dan in Funchal zelf.

    De kleinschaligheid heel comfortabele kamer. Heerlijk aparte slaapkamer en fijne living. Prachtige locatie. Als de kabelbaan sluit is het heerlijk rustig. Overdag veel toeristen die jaloers naar ons balkon keken....we huurden auto maar gingen eigenlijk vaak met kabelbaan en of bus taxi. Alles voorhanden. Het ontbijt is het beste wat ik in jaren heb geproefd. Alles naar je eigen smaak wordt door de keuken vers. Echt vers bereid. Bedankt voor heerlijke dagen.

    Diese Unterkunft ist einfach überragend

    Wir können diese Unterkunft sehr empfehlen. Wir haben uns unglaublich wohl gefühlt. Tolle Appartements, tolle Einrichtung, alles sehr sehr sauber. Das Frühstück und Abendessen im Restaurant ist auch sehr sehr lecker. Wir waren jeden Abend dort essen und sind nicht nach Funchal gefahren um dort etwas zu essen. Top Preis-Leistung. Die Straßen nach Monte sind kurvig und eng,aber man gewöhnt sich daran, Der Weg zur Unterkunft lohnt sich aber- Es ist einfach super und ruhig da oben. Wir konnten uns sehr gut erholen und haben unseren Aufenthalt sehr genossen. Ganz tolles Personal!!!!! Wir hatten eine Menge Spaß .

    Excellent, didn't want to leave!

    Amazing location just what we needed. The room was more than we expected, large lounge/diner/kitchen, enormous bed and large bathroom. The breakfast was fresh, different every day and plentiful. The staff were exceptional, very welcoming and friendly and the service was impeccable. The restaurant is a hidden gem, fantastic chef, food and wine, great for a lunch on the sunny terrace or a cosy evening meal with table clothes and linen napkins and very attentive staff aiming to please. T bone steak, lamb chops, steak picante, Caesar salad, creme brûlée highlights for us, but there are plenty of fresh pizzas, pastas, fish and meat dishes on the menu. We will definitely return and with friends and recommend. I deal location if you want a bit of peace, relaxation, fresh air and away from it all. Ideal for walks and the Palace and Gardens. Thank you Babosas team, you have it spot on!

    An dieser Unterkunft hat uns einfach alles gefallen. An erster Stelle die wirklich mehr als netten Angestellten, wirklich alle kümmern sich liebevoll und herzlich um jeden Gast ohne einmal aufdringlich zu sein. Die Zimmer sind sehr modern und super sauber. Man hat alles was man braucht. Das Frühstück ist reichhaltig und super frisch. Obwohl man im Zimmer kochen kann, hat uns Hugo und seine Küchenmannschaft die Frage wo wir essen wollen immer sehr leicht gemacht. Super leckeres Dinner zu vernünftigen Preisen. Auch wenn man tagsüber mal nicht die schöne Natur genießt kann man wunderbar Lunch oder Teatime machen. Die Lage ist super ruhig und perfekt mit dem Bus oder der Seilbahn zu erreichen. Wir werden auf jeden Fall wieder kommen.
