Overview

In a residential area above Funchal town, in the lovely grounds of a typical Madeiran quinta, home of the Melim family, this beautiful one bedroom house is the perfect location for anyone wanting to stay in Funchal, without the fuss and bother of a car.
The house is bright and freshly decorated with thoughtful personal touches, including the hand embroidered bath towels. On the ground floor you have a modern well equipped kitchen, a twin bedroom and shower room, with wc, hand basin and bidet.
Upstairs you will find a comfortable lounge /dining area overlooking the garden and swimming pool. There is cable television, a DVD and a portable computer with internet connection. The sofa can be used as a sofa-bed, and is suitable for one adult or two smaller children. A cot is also available.

The garden is beautifully kept and the spacious swimming pool area has sun beds and sun umbrellas. Pool towels are also provided.

A ‘welcome basket’ of basic provisions is provided, so you don’t need to worry about rushing to the supermarket the minute you arrive. Heating is included in the price and a hairdryer is also provided for your convenience.

The centre of town is only a 15 minute walk away, but for those that prefer public transport, there is a regular bus service right on the doorstep. Just around the corner you will find a typical restaurant, cafés and one of the best bakers in the area (fresh bread for breakfast - but watch your waistline as the cakes are tempting!), as well as a fresh fruit and vegetable store and tobacconist. If you want to treat yourself to a delicious afternoon tea or a special dinner, then the 5 star Hotel Quinta Jardins Do Lago is only a few minutes walk away.

Summary:

A charming one bedroom house with swimming pool, just minutes from the centre of Funchal.

The property is very well situated, at walking distance from old Funchal. The house is very nice and is equipped with all the necessary facilities, and is tastefully decorated. The garden is fantastic and the large swimming pool wonderful. The welcome by the owner is warm and they are very helpful. As a whole, this stay was most enjoyable
