Take in breathtaking views over the city of Funchal, the sea, and the surrounding hills from your stylish Madeiran apartment. Not only is the south-facing balcony the perfect spot to relax and take in the stunning scenery, but it's also bathed in sunlight throughout the day, allowing you to top up your tan in peace. Step inside through the sliding doors, and discover a stylish interior that's heavily influenced by Japanese folklore and Eastern religious iconography. When combined with the sea views, the apartment leaves you feeling zen. Located on a hillside in a quiet residential neighbourhood, you're within walking distance of the city centre, allowing you to easily explore the labyrinthine streets of the old town, sample local produce at the bustling Mercado dos Lavradores, and hop on the scenic cable car to Monte for even more outstanding views. At the end of the day, the uphill leg home might seem like a step too far. However, taxis and local buses are on hand to take the strain.

Home truths

    Child-friendly amenities such as a cot and highchair are available on request

    We'd recommend hiring a car to explore the island – there's parking right in front of the apartment

    The dining table doubles as a laptop-friendly workspace

    The layout of the second bedroom doesn't allow for the twin beds to be pushed together – however, it can comfortably accommodate two guests, though it's perhaps best suited for children

    There's a small cafe and bakery within a five-minute walk – larger shops can be found fifteen minutes away
