Fantastic, friendly, family-run Apartment complex
Posted May 4, 2016 on Hotels
The Vila Marta is a great, small, family-run apartment complex on the edge of Funchal in Sao Martinho. The apartments are located on a quiet side-street, however the street is halfway up a steep hill (as with most places in Madeira!) and restaurants and shops are therefore a fair walk away. So, it's extremely handy to have access to a hire car if staying here. Yes, you could use the buses, but a hire car makes life a lot easier!!
All the apartments have a balcony with sea views. The rooms are well equipped with a small kitchen area, good sized bathroom, and a bedroom / sitting room separated by a low dividing wall. The rooms are cleaned daily and are spotless and comfortable. The owners provide fresh bread buns every morning to your door which are included in the cost. The local Continente supermarket, a five minute drive away, provides everything else you may need.
Bruno and his father are great guys - very helpful and will check the weather for you everyday to make sure that you head to the best part of the island. Nothing is too much trouble for either of them, and you really do feel a part of the family.
