Make the most of the great climate sunbathing on the huge veranda (15m long by 2.5m wide) or down by the pool. This very large three-storey villa was completely restored in January 2008, and divided into 3 very smart apartments, one of which is the Bay View Apartment. It still has all the original wooden oak floors, colonial patterned very high ceilings and lots of other stunning period features. Most rooms have gorgeous sea views including the living room, bedroom and bathroom.
The flat is located on the middle floor, about 100sqm, with a large private balcony, and stunning sea views from most rooms. Outside the large pool and subtropical garden are the perfect oasis, shared with only 2 other properties.
The Bay View apartment has deckchairs, outside dining space, and private BBQ on its private terrace. Located very near the old quarter of Funchal, restaurants, sea and downtown city centre just a short walk away. The main fish and fruit market of Funchal is just a 5 minute walk away so you can have a drink and admire the views as you grill your fish caught just off the coast of Madeira.

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 microclimate.
Madeira is 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.
The history of Funchal is very rich and so is its culture, which can be savoured in the traditional local restaurants or by tasting the famous Madeira wines.
The Funchal / Old Town, Santa Maria Maior area
This area of Funchal is very special, peaceful in a residential area, with a unique micro climate by the sea which is warm most of the year.
The sea is everywhere and the barreirinha beach resort is a 300m walk. The Funchal market, historic roads and museums and shops and restaurants are all within walking distance.
Great for simply relaxing in the sun, for exploring the historic 500-year old city centre or shopping. Palheiro Golf course is just 10minutes away by car. A good network of buses all around Funchal that stop by the villa.

We stayed in Bay View apartment which certainly lived up to its name. The property is a three storey house converted into 3 apartments. We were in the middle one but each has its own access etc. The property is very well furnished with a large bedroom, bathroom and sitting room and a smaller kitchen. There's a communal swimming pool but you have your own outside seating area which was great for relaxing after a hard day sightseeing!
We visited the local bakery every morning to buy fresh rolls / pastries for breakfast which were superb. It's a shortish walk up a few steep hills but well worth it!
Funchal old town is simply gorgeous with a HUGE range of places to eat, the staff are really friendly and nothing is too much trouble. We walked into the old town every night for our evening meal. You need to beware of the cobbled streets though! My high heels which I packed stayed in the apartment :-( The market is well worth a visit, especially the fresh fish!
We didn't hire a car, relying on foot power and the local bus. At all times we felt safe and thoroughly enjoyed our visit and will return in a few year's time.
The only negative thing I can say is that you do experience noise from the property above, especially if the people wear hob-nailed boots (well, that's how it sounded to us) and, for whatever reason, feel the need to drag furniture about!

This is a very well appointed and comfortable flat, the attention to detail we found very special and hugely enjoyed the location. There are three very independent flats in the house which was fun, as we exchanged notes with other fellow travelers and enjoyed their company but also had our privacy. The pool is huge and a welcome release after the hardy walks on the levadas.
Would definitely recommend to others and will return to see the breath taking view once more, hopefully soon!
