Nestled in the vibrant heart of Funchal, this apartment is an ideal base in Madeira's capital. From here, you’ll find the port and local restaurants within walking distance, while the pebbled beach of Praia Formosa is a ten-minute drive away. The apartment is minimal and practical, with a handy sofa bed in the living room. After a dip in the communal pool, enjoy alfresco dinners on the balcony, or why not have your host organise a private chef for the evening?

Home truths

    At full occupancy, two guests will be sleeping on the sofa bed in the living area.

    This home is located within an apartment building, with a shared entrance, garden and swimming pool. Expect to bump into other guests during your stay.

    If you're travelling with little ones, your host can provide a cot for free. You'll need to request it in advance.

    There’s free private parking for two cars here in the on-site garage.

    You won't find a welcome hamper or basic essentials here, so we'd recommend picking up some bits and bobs to get you started – the closest supermarket is a ten-minute walk away.
