Fantastic family sized apartment
A spacious, clean and well equipped 3 bedroom 2 bathroom apartment in a great location 10 minutes from Funchal. The balcony is very big and south facing,with fantastic ocean views. The sun shines from morning (Where we had breakfast most days) until sunset and them sunsets are amazing, you can also watch boats coming and going, bring your binoculars! This apartment has all mod cons. Oven, microwave, fridge and freezer, toaster, kettle,iron, hair dryer etc. Good wifi, TV with plenty of channels,in English, German, French and Portuguese. The swimming pool area and pool itself are very clean. We had 2 weeks of sunshine, mostly in the early twenties, not bad for December. The apartment is a short distance from Forum Shopping Centre, 20 minute walk or 4 minute drive. We had a hire car and there was plenty of parking.There are some nice bars and restaurants close to the apartment, and also on Praia Formosa beach,witch is within a few minutes walking distance. There is a fantastic coastal walk to Camara de Lobos, the next fishing village, witch takes about 20 to 30 minutes and the views are breathtaking. Sete Mares is a little bar in the center of Camara de Lobos, ask for their Bolo do Caco (Toasted Stone Baked Garlic Bread) Its beautiful with a cold Coral Beer. We have stayed in a number of similar apartments in Madeira, but this one was the best, by far, and we will be staying here again. Jan was very friendly and helpful on arrival, but we didn't need to see him until we were leaving as everything was just perfect! We can highly recommend this apartment, if I could give it more than 5 stars I would.
