Enjoy a holiday in Madeira with a Funchal Holiday Rental

Funchal is the very beautiful capital city of the island of Maderia, a Portuguese dependency that lies in the Atlantic, about 400kims north of the Canary Islands. A Funchal holiday home is the perfect escape to stunning scenery, interesting culture, and a lifestyle that embraces relaxation as well as tradition. Funchal is a foot friendly city so wherever your Funchal holiday accommodation is located, the sights, facilities and amenities will all be easily accessible.

Scenic settings for Funchal holiday accommodation

Funchal is not only a beautiful city but it also enjoys a pretty marvellous setting. The city is built on gently sloping hills above and around a harbour, creating the look of an amphitheatre. From a Funchal holiday villa on the slopes, there are plenty of delicious views down to the shimmering sea and backwards to the island’s mountainous interior. The city’s cathedral which dates back to the 15th century, is usually visible from most places in the city.

Sights and Sounds of Funchal

When taking holiday accommodation in Funchal, you want to know there is plenty to see and do. As the capital city, Funchal has all the facilities you’d expect. You can wander the markets and shopping centres, take a rest in pleasant and peaceful botanical gardens, view historic buildings and browse fine art galleries. The harbour area is the hub of the city. As well as being a busy port for cruise ships, ferries to neighbouring islands, this is the departure point for pleasure trips including whale watching tours. There are also excellent and inevitable seafood restaurants, but these are high quality selling the freshest and best catch of the day. You’ll find enough bars on the waterfront and in the city, and there’s also a casino if you fancy a flutter.

Away from the city, the mountains and hills of the interior are a haven for hikers and walkers. With plenty of sporting activities including golf, diving, horse riding, balloon rides and tennis, there’s plenty of reasons an active family or couple would take a Funchal holiday rental. Kids will find enough to keep them amused including the Aquapark at Santa Cruz and the Madeira Theme Park.

Madeira sledge ride

One of the absolute must experiences whilst staying in Madeira is the Monte Toboggan Ride. This is a thrilling ride in a wicker basket on sledge runners, in which you are guided through the steep, narrow and winding streets of Funchal by two runners. It looks somewhat precarious, but the islanders have been using this way to get from Monte to the harbour since the 1850s, and it’s surprisingly safe. If that sounds too scary, there is a gondola lift to do the same journey which affords glorious views at the same time.

On the beach

There is a beach to be enjoyed in Funchal. Praia Formosa is rather dramatic, made of black sand and large pebbles and swimming is safe. The nearest beach outside the city is at Calheta, but, many visitors like to take the ferry from Funchal harbour to the tiny island of Porto Santo, which boasts a fine white sand beach that stretches for 9kms.

Funchal weather

Madeira enjoys an enviable climate. It ranges from 38 to 12 degrees, averaging out at 34 in summer and 15 in winter.

Getting there

Madeira’s only airport is Funchal International which is close enough to the city that you could be at your Funchal holiday accommodation within half hour of picking up your luggage. For flights into Madeira, Australians and New Zealanders would need to fly into the UK and take a connecting service.

The lovely appartment has plenty of space to offer for two people and we enjoyed the nice environment. We found the kitchen well equipped with little to miss for cooking. There is a supermarket next door and a bakery, but also several restaurants. Its possible to walk to the city center within 30 min on the Funchal beach promenade, but there are also good bus connections. A plus is the parking-slot in the basement, since the public parking places are often occupied.

This apartment that my uncle and I stayed in was clean and well-maintained, with the most amazing scenery and views across the sea. There was plenty of crockery and utensils for a family of 4 and a washing machine which was a must!!! We all had the most wonderful holiday, and Jan was always on hand if we needed information about the island. We will all be definately seeing you again next year Jan, and many thanks once again for the use of your wonderful apartment
