Nice and large apartement in a quiet area
This is a nice, clean, large, friendly and practical apartement. The kitchen is practical and well equipped, the dining table is very nice and there is a fine terrace. The area is mostly quiet, nice with large houses and gardens, quite close to Funchal centre. There are no shops in the nearest area, except a bakery. There is easy to find a parking place, but the streets around are very steep. You walk easily down to the old town in 15 minutes, but back again we preferred a taxi - costs 6-7 euros. The bus No 21 from the centre to Botanic gardens runs somewhat infrequent in the evening. The owner was reliable and provided good service. We will clearly reccommend this apartement, and we well rent it again when we go back to Madeira.'
Please note that there is a small supermarket next door to the bakery, which is usually open everyday, including at weekends.
Buses at main road, close to the apartment, are not running at full timetable due to some roadworks around. But soon they are expected to return to normal frequency.
Large, clean, well maintained apartment, with sunny terrace and a well equiped kitchen. Close to the beautiful old town of Funchal with many excellent restaurants and bars. This apartment is up a very steep hill as is a lot of Funchal, we found the walk down took about 20 minutes but a lot longer to walk up, however there are many Taxis which cost between 4-6 Euros depending on where you get in. The bus stop is just at the end of the street and they seem to be every 20-30 minutes and cost 1.10 Euro. The first trip on the bus costs 1.80 for a bus card that you can then top up in some shops and machines with credits for further journeys which are 1.10 Euro each. We found this a great place to stay as it was a quiet area with all you need just a short distance away such as restaurants, bars and supermarkets. The owner responded to all my emails quickly answering all the little questions I had and has provided an excellent and friendly service. We would love to go back.
Nous avons passé un agréable séjour dans cet appartement et dans l'île. C'était assez sportif car le pays n'est pas plat mais on en garde de très bons souvenirs. Le soleil n'était toujours pas au rendez-vous, néanmoins nous avons bien profité de tous ces magnifiques paysages, les montagnes, la mer, la végétation luxuriante...
Gute ruhige Lage
Die Wohnung ist in einer ruhigen Lage oberhalb der Altstadt Funchal. Die ist über eine sehr steile Straße kurzfristig zu erreichen; der Rückweg ist sehr anstrengend (Alternative: Bushaltestelle nach ein paar Metern).
Die Terrasse ist zum Essen und zum Sonnen schön (Südlage). Die Ausstattung ist spartanisch, doch uns hat hier nichts lebensnotwendige gefehlt. Wir haben beim Kochen häufig improvisiert.
Kritik: Die Küchenausstattung ist unter allen Ansprüchen: drei Tassen für eine Wohnung mit sieben Schlafplätzen. Sehr zusammengewürfelt und nach Verlust nicht ergänzt. Hier sollte auf alle Fälle nachgebessert werden. Ansonsten war es ein toller Urlaub in dieser Wohnung.
Nice Place to stay, with some negative points
We are 3 persons and we stay at this place for 12 days.
Madeira is a very beautiful and varied island. To recommend special to hike (the Levadas are uniquely) ,to enjoy unique plants, animals and the varied climate.
The Contact with the owner went smoothly and the keys were handed over without problems.
The problem of the flat is the second bedroom, which is an expanded garage. Since the other garages in the yard are not expanded, there is a lot of traffic noise. Also there is no ventilate properly, because there are only two small dormer windows (see photo).
The kitchen is very well equipped, but the cupboards smell very musty.
The climb to the apartment turned out to be very stressful, because the apartment is accessible only by steep streets.
All in all we enjoyed it very well.
Golf: PALHEIRO GOLF - This 18 hole, 6000 metre plus course was designed in 1993 by Cabel Robinson, and is skillfully set within the gracious parkland of the Quinta de Palheiro Ferreiro. Remarkable for tight fairways, fast greens, and judicious use of the beautiful trees that once covered the hillside, the course is a worthy challenge for all handicap levels. Palheiro Golf is situated some 2 km from this appartment, with magnificent views overlooking the town and bay. § SANTO DA SERRA GOLF - Its original course, built in 1937, was redesigned in 1991 by the famous golf architect Robert Trent Jones who created a completely new and spectacular 27 hole golf course in one of the most beautiful landscapes that nature may offer. Santo da Serra Golf is 20 minutes away from Funchal centre and 5 minutes away from the airport
