The Madeira region

Madeira's climate is superb, very mild all year round, never too hot or too cold. The climate near the sea in Funchal is specially warm and appealing as it has a warm microclimate.

A walkers paradise, with stunning natural scenery to explore. The sea is excellent, bathed by the gulf stream so swimming is a must all year round, and the boat trips from Funchal marina should not be missed.

The history of Funchal is very rich and so is its culture, which can be savoured in the traditional local restaurants of the Old Townor by tasting the famous Madeira wines.


This area of Funchal, by the old town is very special, peaceful in a residential area, with a unique micro climate by the sea which is warm most of the year. We love the nearby Artisan bakery and café Mariazinha, and the grocer had delicous local fruit from the area. Enjoy barbecues year round with fish brought back from the market, fresh fruit and vegetables and of course the wines of Portugal. We can give you our tried and tested suggestions for our favourite restaurants in the old town and what to do and see on the island. We welcome many regular guests that visit us every year, some staying for several months over winter, others just for a week or two. We hope you will also become part of the Funchal Cottages extended family.

The sea is a constant backdrop during your stay and the barreirinha beach resort is a 300m walk away. The Funchal market, historic roads, museums, shops and restaurants are all within walking distance.

Great for simply relaxing in the sun, exploring the historic 500-year old city centre or shopping in the city center. Very friendly neighbourhood authentic and not at all touristy, a great way to live like a local.

Palheiro Golf course is just 10minutes away by car. A good network of buses all around Funchal that stop by the villa.
