Do you have a question about this home or the local area?

Located in the old town of Funchal, this home offers the best of both worlds – the vibrant city on your doorstep, but within walking distance of the stunning coastline. Climb the stairs into your holiday haven and you’re met with a contemporary, calm and inviting space – quite the contrast to the bold colours on the home's external walls. On the top floor, you’ll find your social space, with an open-plan kitchen and living area that extends out onto your sun-drenched terrace, a spot where you’re likely to spend much of your time soaking up the Madeira sun. If eating out doesn’t tickle your fancy, your sleek kitchen is ready and waiting to test out your culinary skills. Whip up a feast and take it to your terrace to dine alfresco, where the sea peeks at you from between the buildings and the Funchal-Monte cable car trundles by. With the salty scent of the ocean hanging in the air, you’ll soon be itching to feel the sand beneath your feet and the sea breeze in your hair. You're in luck – a short stroll (just a few minutes) and you’ll find yourself on São Tiago beach. Here, you can spend a lazy afternoon in the sea or on the sand with your holiday read, making memories that will last long after you’ve returned home.
