Recently constructed around the remains of an old character cottage (the bread oven remains!) this spacious property is just five minutes walk from the seafront and the Old Town part of Funchal city centre. All the front rooms and the south-facing terrace have fantastic views over the city and bay of Funchal (this has to one of the very best positions to watch the fireworks on New Years Eve and during the Atlantic Festival in June). The very best views are afforded from the roof terrace on the second floor.
Each of the three bedrooms has twin or double beds, and all are en-suite, so completely private. There is also a house bathroom. The two suites on the first floor have private south-facing balconies. Downstairs there is a huge lounge with comfortable seating and a separate dining area adjacent to the fully equipped kitchen. There is free Wi-Fi throughout, and cable TV with nearly seventy channels. Hot water is provided solar-power with an auxiliary electricity supply
There is an outside covered seating area, with lots of chairs and sun-loungers on the large south-facing terrace with decorative railings and trailing bougainvillea. A private gate and parking area accommodates one large or two small cars.
This really is a perfect position - far enough from the centre to allow elevated views, but near enough to just walk out to the old (relatively undiscovered) lido and bathing platforms at Barreirinha, or to one of the many cafes and restaurants in the old part of Funchal. There are lots of cafes and shops locally, with the largest supermarket in Funchal just ten minutes walk away.
