“Fabulous holiday house in centre of a beautiful city.”
Reviewed 1 May 2017 for a stay in April 2017

The apartment is spacious, very clean, comfortable and lives up to its name with lots of interesting and colourful artistic details, perfect for exploring Funchal on foot or catching a bus to the outskirts of the city and the Island of Madeira beyond.
A very well equipped kitchen to cook the wonderful, locally purchased food in, and lots of really good local restaurants and cafes, within a few seconds walk, to eat out if you prefer.
The owners, who were very welcoming and helpful, met us at the apartment and had arranged airport transfers with a very friendly and knowledgeable driver, all four of us had a wonderful week and will return in the near future.

“Better late than never!”
Reviewed 12 March 2017 for a stay in October 2016

I stayed here with family at the very end of Oct/Nov.

Sveta is a lovely lady and you can't wish for a more attentive host should you require it.

The house is midway down a lovely shopping street with cafes and shops in abundance.

Once inside the house there's a spiral staircase that spans 4 floors so it's not for the infirm in any way, I'd be very wary with very young children.

It's one of the most well equipped places I've ever visited, even down to the first aid kit with pain killers and vit c tablets!

Clean, tidy, very functional with lovely views over the roof tops on the fourth floor. There's a nice balcony attached to the 3rd floor master bedroom where a glass or two of something cold is welcome prio to going out for the evening.

Absolutely bang in the centre and ideal for getting anywhere fast on foot or via the taxi rank that's a stones throw away.

Highly recommend.

We had a fantastic week in the Art House, it's in a characterful street with cafes and restaurants on the doorstep, but v quiet at night, perfect combination. We enjoyed breakfast on the terrace, and great views from top floor. Our hosts looked after us so well, ensuring we were met from airport, shown round, and picked up at end of holiday to see us back on way to airport. We'd highly recommend both Funchal and the Art House, and will be back!

“Super clean and a great location!”
Reviewed 28 February 2017 for a stay in February 2017

I took my mother on holiday to celebrate her birthday, and couldn't have chosen better. The apartment was very comfortable and in a lovely part of the gracious Old Town. What really made our short break was the kindness of Svetlana and Alex. We were greeted with some spectacular flowers and a bottle of wine for my Mum and Alex thoughtfully suggested taking us to a couple of pretty locations on the island on our way to the airport. Many thanks.

“Fantastic stay!”

I highly recommend booking Fun Chalet! It's a spacious, very clean and comfortable three-story apartment with all modern comforts, two full and one half baths. Walking distance to all attractions. Only ten minutes on foot to the cable car and very close to the shore. Hosts Alex and Svetlana also own a very interesting gallery on Santa Maria street, called Caravel. It's now my favorite place to shop -- high quality unique gifts, including hand blown glass jewelry and hand-painted wine bottles. Alex is a great guide around the island -- if not for him, we'd never find the best places to eat! Touristy restaurants are rather mediocre in Funchal, and he took us to a few where we had the best kebobs and octopus of out lives! Who would've thought octopus could melt in your mouth! Warm charming hosts made the stay much more enjoyable. Highly recommend!

“A great place to stay!”
Reviewed 11 November 2016 for a stay in November 2016

The house was ideally located - just 2 mins from Marina, Cathedral, mini market. Couple more minutes to bigger supermarket over 2 floors.
Sveta was there to greet us from the taxi and show us the way to the house. She explained everything we needed to know about the house and gave us x2 sets of keys (always useful when you are travelling as a party).
What was really thoughtful was that Sveta had left a bottle of really nice red wine for us, water and fruit (as well as chocolate bars in the bedrooms!). The kitchen was well equipped and even had useful things like salt, pepper, olive oil, vinegar, tea bags, sugar...etc. The bathrooms were also well stocked.
The beds were comfortable and the place was clean and warm.
We would stay there again!
