About the property

3 bedroom house and 1 wc for 5 guest in old town Funchal

The Lazareto's Cozy House e is located on the seafront with a wonderful garden and allows accommodate up to five adults. It has a large balcony, enjoying a tranquil position in the hillsides of Funchal. Ideal for families or groups wishing to enjoy the spectacular view of the ocean and the city. The House has one bathroom, three bedrooms, a kitchen, and a living/dining area overlooking the sea, ideal for friends or families who wish to remain together during the holidays. Animals are accepted with a kennel in the garden, barbecue and garage.

Located 25 km from Santa Cruz Airport and just 1 km from the center of Funchal, Beach Barreirinha, traditional trade, services and health care providers and other local attractions such as Cable Car, Fort St. James, Port and Promenade that allows the guest to know the entire seafront of the city. Property well served in terms of public transport connection to the city center at regular intervals of one hour by bus number 40 from the company "Horários do Funchal".

The Funchal City has numerous attractions such as several museums with exhibitions of various kinds, gardens and viewpoints, churches and religious art, Forte de São Tiago, Funchal harbor and the famous Farmers Market that represents the best of traditional commerce, which is also an attraction! In the old grocery stores where they sell loose spices or where you can drink the famous Poncha of Madeira, which serves as great appetizer a meal in the cozy atmosphere of one of the great restaurants in the old town where you can enjoy a good atmosphere and service, but also, a selection of various meat dishes or fish (always fresh). You can enjoy a unique view over the city of Funchal taking the cable car bound for Monte which is known for its beautiful, lush gardens, but also the famous Church of Monte. From the top of Monte's Church the overlooking the city of Funchal is indescribable! To return to the city center, you can choose to visit the Botanical Garden or release some adrenaline taking the famous "basket of cars" to return to Funchal city center.

There are many options for visiting the island of Madeira, we have car rental or recommend bus tours. The best of Madeira won't be seen through the roads, but, taking the old paths (famous "levadas" of Madeira Island) linking all the villages of Madeira, even the most remote ones. Through them can meet the most beautiful and lush island landscapes, but also meet the famous laurel forest which is classified as World Heritage by Unesco.

Shouldn't miss the visit to other places like Camacha, known by the artisans working the wicker (chairs, basket cars descending from Monte to Funchal, Santana (theme park, famous thatched houses and the knowned Levada of Green Cauldron), Camera Lobos and Caniçal (fishing villages where you can find good restaurants with fresh fish), Eira do Serrado and Curral de Freiras (magnificent views and traditional products based on chestnuts), Calheta and Machico (white sandy beaches), Pico Areeiro and Pico Ruivo ( highest peaks of Madeira), North Island (where you can feel the difference of the various climates will find in Madeira, but also a tour where you will find green landscapes and good restaurants), etc.

Nous avons passer un très bon moment en famille dans cette maison. Nous avons été bien reçu et nous nous y sommes tous sentis comme chez nous. La maison est bien située et il y fait bon vivre, je la conseille.

Vue intéressante mais.....

  • 1 of 5

Que c'est sale !

C'est la première fois que je laisse un commentaire négatif: quand ce n'est pas à mon goût je me tais.

Les cuillère en bois totalement moisies, la passoire avec des aliments en décomposition dans les interstices, les couverts douteux et les serviettes de toilette tachées!

C'est beaucoup là!

La vue ne fait pas tout..... merci de nous avoir accueilli dès midi.
