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 about Apartamentos Taberna!
    I would definitely plan to stay here again next time in Madeira. This was a home away from home. Ocean views out the front and mountains views out the back. We enjoyed coming back from a day of adventuring and sitting on the balcony with a nice bottle of wine in the evening. The property manager is on site if there are any questions needing answered and she is extremely kind and helpful. Step outside your front door and be spoiled for choice for dinner.

    En rigtig fin central beliggende lejlighed! eneste lille minus er støj fra den lokale restaurants udsugning samt en nærliggende skaterbane. Men alt i alt en super gode lejlighed med en super placering.

    We had a super holiday and would visit again. Would recommend for a central city holiday for people wanting to be amounts the old part of Funchal. Easy access to visit the cable car / sea trips etc and public bus services. Great restaurants with delicious sea food below the apartment.

    Muito obrigado pela sua review aos Apartamentos Taberna!
    This Airbnb was amazing. The location was perfect. We loved that it was within walking distance of numerous bars, restaurants, and the cable cars (tabogan was so much fun!). The restaurant below the Airbnb was one of our favorites for dinner.

    Appartement très bien situé au cœur du vieux Funchal, spacieux, très propre, et très bien équipé. Riccardo nous a gentiment accueilli malgré notre arrivée après minuit. Seul bémol: un peu bruyant le soir à cause des bars au dessous.

    Merci Beaucoup.

    Sehr schöne und grosse Wohnung und sehr sauber. Der Empfang war sehr freundlich und angenehm. Wir haben uns von Anfang an sehr wohl gefühlt. Es hat uns an nichts gefehlt. Auch den Balkon haben wir genossen. Man ist mitten im Geschehen der Altstadt von Funchal. Alles was man braucht ist in nächster Gehdistanz. Auch der Bäcker um die Ecke mit Kaffee und Croissants. Das Leben in der Altstadt ist belebt und pulsiert, auch bis in die Nacht hinein. Es war ein schöner Aufenthalt. Ruth & Gabriela

    Thank you!

    Le personnel est d'une réelle gentillesse. Notre vol a eu beaucoup de retard et 1 personne était présente à 2 heures du matin pour nous remettre les clés! Ils ont répondu à nos différentes questions et ont su nous apporter leurs conseils durant notre séjour. Le logement est propre, grand et fonctionnel. Nous étions 2 couples et c'était parfait. L'emplacement est en plein cœur de la Rua Santa Maria, le top du top! Par contre, attention, qui dit plein centre, dit également bruit dans la rue le soir. C'est évident. Je recommande entièrement cet établissement.

    Tolle Lage in einer lebendigen Stadt

    Super Lage mitten in der Altstadt und zu allen Einkaufsmöglichkeiten (Bäcker, Supermarkt etc.), gepflegte, großzügige Wohnung mit Balkon & (kleinem) Blick aufs Meer, mehr als ausreichend Stauraum für Kleidung etc. Zudem sehr nette Gastgeber(in).

    Great Apartment in Old Town
    This apartment is an excellent option for Funchal. It is right in the heart of old town. A five minute walk to swimming spots and a 5 to 10 minute walk to the farmers market and a big supermarket with everything. The veranda is lovely and the pictures are extremely accurate. The property managers are in the same building and you get a discount on the restaurant on the ground floor has great food. Cannot recommend more highly!

    Un emplacement au top et un joli balcon en prime !

    L'emplacement en plein centre ville à proximité des restaurants, du téléphérique, du marché, de l'océan et des stations de bus. Le balcon sur la rue animée avec une vue sur la mer Propreté du logement et équipements fournis au top !

    Beautiful apartment in fabulous location!

    Great location in Old Town, close to cable car, sea front, Spar and supermarket, fish market and lots of restaurants. Very well-appointed and large apartment with fully fitted and equipped kitchen, washing machine, lovely balcony from one bedroom, everything one could want. Gorgeous Xmas table decorations were a lovely surprise. Fantastically helpful lady named Vanessa, responsible for managing the apartments - can't rate her highly enough, so helpful and available every day till late to help with queries.

    Thank you for your nice comments
    Very Very good as it was the first time on my own.

    I did not have breakfast and I did not use the restaurant as I have been to Madeira for 16 years ( but not stayed in Funchal ) and have friends who live in Funchal who have shown me a variety of restaurants of value and excellence throughout my visits, even so I can't fault the apartment.
