“Homely and very welcoming. 15-20 minute downhill walk to the centre of Funchal.”
Reviewed 27 January 2018 for a stay in January 2018

What a fantastic stay. Our hosts were absolutely wonderful. We were made to feel like part of the family. The accommodation was spacious and comfortable with all the facilities you would expect. Our 2 bed apartment had the bonus of a 2nd shower in the main bedroom along with the main bathroom and WC. The little kitchenette was quite adequate with the bonus of a washing machine and fridge freezer. We also had a lovely outdoor terrace area to relax with a glass of wine. There were a variety of English speaking film channels on the TV which was nice just before bed time. I e-mailed Christina to ask for the best way to get to the apartment from the airport and was offered the kindness of being collected at the airport and given a brief tour of Funchal to help us get our bearings.
The walk to the centre of Funchal was all downhill and the walk back was obviously all uphill. But with Christinas advice we took the number 21 or 22 bus back up to the hill which left a short 3 minute walk to the apartment. The last bit is very steep, but you get used to it after a day or two !!!.
There is a Cafe/Bakery and a small but well stocked supermarket 5 minutes walk from the apartment. TOP TIP:- we bought fresh rolls, cheese and ham to make a breakfast roll only to find that if you go in the morning they will make you a fresh cheese, or cheese and ham roll and a coffee or soft drink for 99 cents at the supermarket. An absolute bargain. The dogs in Funchal are very vocal and seem to enjoy chatting away till about 11pm when they all seem to go to sleep at the same time.
All in all, we could not have been happier with the accommodation and the welcome. It was exceptional value for money and we would not hesitate to stay again.
