We found this amazing appartment having been to Madeira before and would certainly return again. It is close to all the shopping you would require and only a short bus trip away from Funchal. The appartment has stunning views and excellent facilities. Nothing but excellent communications with the owner. If you want a hassle free holiday in a high spec appartment, this is the one for you. A gem on this fantastic island.
We were greeted when we arrived, shown the apartment and provided with all info and keys needed.
The apartment has great sea views and a lovely pool and just a couple of minutes walk to the beach and a lovely
walk into the City Centre. It is very close to shops, bars and restaurants and the Island is stunning. We would definately return and highly recommend Villa Formosa. There is a bus stop right outside and great coffee shop across the road. The people of Madeira are charming.
We were met at the airport by not Manuel (but his nephew), and taken to the Vila Formosa, where Rita showed us in. The Vila was clean with lovely view out to sea and overlooking the pool. We found the information that the owner had sent beforehand very useful, our first trip was to the supermarket which is a good 10/15 min walk - it may have been best to get a taxi back whilst carrying our purchases (wine,beer,gin!) also some food. All other supplies we just nipped up to the row of shops opposite the Vila complex, where buses also ran from.
This was our first trip to Madeira and found the week went very quickly, the situation suited us as quieter than being in Funchal centre, the pool did get busier at weekends, but for a lot of the time we had it to ourselves.
We found an excellent pizza place not far away, turn left out of gates, carry on past round-about, cross road turn left up by the Brazilian steak bar, Papa 2 further up that road - very reasonable they will, if asked, wrap up what you cannot eat bring home for lunch the next day!
You do need to be prepared to do a fair bit of walking, if like us we did not hire a car, but the buses are frequent we did buy a 5 day ticket, which saves Hassel. Our only criticism would be the sofa was not particularly comfortable and the pillows left a bit to be desired, but now I am nit picking! We hope to go again.
The apartment is great! The views are unbeatable! Distance to the old town is 15-20 mins on the bus, buses No1 & No2 run outside the apartment all the time! Apartment was clean and has everything you need for a couple. We were met by Peter, the guy managing the property, he showed us everything we had to know, nice guy! Mark replied to all my emails and answered all my questions. Thanks Mark.
I recommend this apartment for a couple looking to visit Madeira!
Excellent location with wonderful view - could hear the waves on the beach at night :-) Steep path/steps down to beach, and several cafes and a good restaurant there on Praia Formosa. Cafe Formosa just opposite the entrance gates - good coffee and pastries. Shopping centre a short walk away, and Funchal is a pleasant walk along the coast path, or very easy to catch a bus.
The apartment is comfortable with all you need to relax, and cook if you want to. Even towels are provided... We thoroughly recommend it :-)
I stayed in the apartment for a week and had the most fantastic holiday. It was my 1st trip to Madeira and i will certainly return. It is beautiful. The apartment was just as described and better. The location was great - out of town but the bus service was excellent if you wanted to go into Funchal town. There were ample stores to buy food very close by and it was less than 10 minutes walk to the biggest shopping center on the island. The pool area was clean and quiet and the views from the apartment and the pool was second to none. I would have to say that it was all quite perfect. Mark was a pleasure to deal with too and i just couldn't fault the place. Thanks for a great holiday.
