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.

    Séjour de trois nuits très agréable. Logement très spacieux et confortable. Le bruit de la rue pourrait être pénible pour des personnes sensibles, les bouchons d'oreilles sont incontournables... Il aurait été pratique de disposer de quelques ingrédients de base pour assaisonner un petit repas, sel, poivre, huile et vinaigre.... L'accueil de Flavia et du personnel du restaurant Taverna Ruel a été très chaleureux et aimable. Et le repas au restaurant... Nous recommandons vivement !!

    Thank you for your kind words about our property!
    This apartment is literarily within half a block of the shore promenade, city center shopping, cable car station and is located in one of the most popular old town streets lined with restaurants. Very quaint and lively area. The apartment itself is located in an old building but is very modern inside with a full kitchen, living and dining areas, nice bathroom and two bedrooms with French balconies. The rental office was very responsive and made the whole process easy and convenient. Heads up staying in Funchal. It is very hilly which made this apartment especially nice since it is probably in the only flat area of town. If you want to meander the city buses are convenient, cheap and a couple of blocks from the aprtment.

    Great place, location, and value. Super clean! The restaurant downstairs was top notch. The beds could be a little softer though

    Good place as described, the apartment was clean, Caroline was there to greet us and was very kind to allow us to check in early and check out late. The apartment though is very basic but for the price it's great I guess.. the place does get very noisy during the nights ... but we expected it .

    Thanks for your comments. Glad we were able to let you check in early and stay late on your day of departure.

    Beautiful apartment with a very delicious restaurant below. Fantastic location for walking to everything and even catching buses and transport around that island. Thank you for such a great stay!

    Thank you.

    Great location to stay in Madeira, if you're visiting for a few days. It is right on the popular tourist street, with restaurants and bars. Very close to the waterfront as well. Walking distance from all the city sights of Funchal. The only issue is that it can get a little loud in the night, with bedroom windows facing the street.

    Thank you very much for your comments.

    We had everything we needed for a very comfortable stay! The apartment is beautiful and well stocked with everything for a great trip. The checkin process was easy, loved the restaurant downstairs- the best meal I had in Madeira! Fantastic location in old town, very walkable to restaurants, tram to monte, Cr7 museum, and very close parking nearby 10 euros/day. Attentive and helpful host for information on Madeira. Would definitely recommend and hope to be back one day!

    Many thanks for your great comments.

    Beautiful spacious apartment which was well stocked for all your needs. Ideal location in the old town, central for cable car, sea and bars and restaurants Very clean and the host was very accessible Yes theres a little noise from the restaurant but it didn't bother us and earplugs helped. You actually get a discount in the restaurant and the food was fantastic as were the staff so any small residual noise is forgiven! I would stay again and I would recommend Many thanks for a great stay
