This is a lovely apartment just right for a mature couple like us.
Maria met us from the bus and took us to the apartment and showed us around.
The furnishings are very comfortable and the kitchen well equipped. We did not eat in the apartment, except for breakfast, but the kitchen had everything necessary for making a three course meal.
Although the apartment is on a busy road and is on the 6th floor (there is a lift) there was very little noise from outside when the windows were closed.
Being in the old town the market and supermarket downstairs are very handy as are all the buses and the cable car to visit the various attractions.
We enjoyed the views from the balcony where we could see up the mountain and out to sea. It was good watching the cruise ships come and go and the views were beautiful at night with all the lights.
Thank you Maria for making our stay in Madeira so comfortable.
We've just returned from a week's holiday in this great apartment in Funchal. Centrally located within walking distance of the Old Town, marina, market, shops and some lovely restaurants. Bus stops all nearby to any part of the island and the aerobus stop is only 500m from the apartment. We chose not to but the kitchen was really well equipped if you wanted to self cater and there is a supermarket right underneath the apartment block. The fish, fruit and flower market is also just across the road. The apartment is located on a busy road but when the windows are shut it's not a problem and it has a nice balcony looking up at the mountains. Maria met us at the bus stop and took us to the door and there was fresh fruit and bottled water already in the flat for us. Maria was lovely and very helpful. She also lives in the same block should we have needed her help, she said just to knock on her door. A great place to spend a very relaxing weeks holiday.

We have just got back from our stay in Madeira and had a fantastic time.
The apartment was in a perfect location for us, on the top floor of a well maintained building (don't worry there's a lift). There is a supermarket and shopping centre at street level which was super convenient.
It is only a 2 minute walk to the bus terminus and a further couple to the cable car up Monte. The other direction takes 10 mins max to the marina.
The apartment itself was extremely clean and spacious. The kitchen had all the mod cons you could ask for, perfect for attempting some home cooked madeiran cooking (warning, they love their salt!!). The balcony is a great size and gets the sun until around 4 at this time of year. It looks onto a busy street but you can't hear it from inside, the flower, fish and veg market is directly opposite as is the old town.
Maria was absolutely lovely, she met us at the bus stop and was kind enough to leave some guides, a map and some vouchers for us.
Really great value, can't recommend it enough!!!
