Hidden away in a quiet residential area of Garajau lies this beautiful little apartment, surrounded by vibrant local flora and with everything you need to make the most of your Portuguese holiday. Sit out on the private balcony to enjoy your morning coffee and plan your day as you look out toward the glittering ocean, or get some last-minute work done at the dining table. With full access to the private garden, complete with a terrace and sun loungers, let the kids play on the grass as you catch some vitamin D on the sun loungers with a good book and a cold drink. You'll find yourself in the coastal town of Caniço, within walking distance of the Cristo Rei statue on the coast. Spend a day shopping around Funchal, a short car ride away, or visit the cultural attractions, whether at the marina or in the city centre. For those wanting a fun-filled holiday without sacrificing the ability to go home and get some peace and quiet in the evening, this place is ideal.
