Situated in the heart of the fashionable Monumental/Lido area of Funchal, this stunning six-bedroom duplex penthouse apartment offers luxurious accommodation and outstanding facilities in a prime location. The building features beautifully-manicured gardens, a swimming pool, tennis courts, a children's playground and there is a well-equipped gym in the apartment itself. The elegant living room is comfortably furnished with a contemporary sofa and armchairs and provides luxurious details, including a 52” TV and DVD player. A chic dining area leads to a balcony where you can enjoy drinks overlooking the surrounding countryside. Spacious bedrooms include an en-suite master bedroom with a 52” TV, three additional double bedrooms and two single bedrooms, all equipped with TVs. There are a total of four bathrooms, a dressing room, a laundry room and a fully-equipped kitchen, where superior quality appliances include a large, American-style fridge.

Local attractions: Located in a prestigious residential area, this apartment building is situated just around the corner from the Forum Madeira shopping centre and very near the Monumental/Lido district, the Praia Formosa beach and the natural volcanic pools of Doca do Cavacas. The ground floor of the apartment building is home to a string of fashionable boutiques, including Cristiano Ronaldo's CR7 signature label boutique, as well as hairdressing salons, a newsagent's and numerous bars and restaurants. A 5-minute walk away, Forum Madeira, Funchal's newest shopping centre, provides numerous shops, bars and restaurants as well as a hypermarket, cinemas and a beautiful roof garden that affords stunning panoramic views of the ocean and surrounding countryside. Funchal's prime hotel, bar and restaurant area, the Lido, is a short walk along the scenic seafront promenade, providing plenty of opportunities for gourmet wining and dining with beautiful views of the sea and bay of Funchal.

Funchal attractions: Funchal's historic centre is a delight to wander around. Quaint cobbled streets and jacaranda-shaded pavements are lined with the impressive 15th and 16th Century architecture of churches, palatial homes and museums while the bustling stalls of Mercado dos Lavradores market are dazzling to behold. The adrenalin-pumping toboggan ride down the steep slopes of Monte, a walk through the exotic subtropical vegetation of the Botanical Gardens or a wine-tasting tour of the island's famous wine cellars are amongst the many activities that you can fill your day with before returning to the luxury of this apartment.

Leisure and sports in Madeira: Madeira's perfect climate, fabulous sea temperatures and beautiful landscapes open up a wealth of leisure and sporting opportunities. Walking the famous 'levada' trails along the irrigation channels that criss-cross the island is the best way of appreciating the beauty of the vertiginous landscape and the diversity of Madeira's lush vegetation. Or head for the dramatic Cabo Girão cliffs, situated about 7 km from the apartment, where you can enjoy breathtaking views of the cliffs as they plunge into the sea from a 590m height. Madeira's sea and rich marine life are equally powerful magnets, attracting dolphin and whale-watchers, scuba divers and big game fishermen. And if you want a relaxing holiday spent doing nothing much at all, sit back and enjoy the scenery with a drink of the local 'poncha' drink and a taste of the succulent black scabbard fish in nearby Câmara de Lobos, the picturesque bay and fishing town that was immortalised by Sir Winston Churchill in his paintings.

The Madeira Islands region

Referred to as the 'floating garden of the Atlantic', Madeira's breathtaking landscape, fabulous climate and warm waters have made it a long-time favourite holiday destination. Subtropical vegetation, UNESCO-listed forests and a rich cultural heritage offer a host of activities and plenty of sightseeing and this apartment is the ideal base from which to explore this beautiful island.


Located near the Forum Madeira shopping centre and the Monumental/Lido area, the apartment is situated some 3 km from Funchal's city centre. Buses and taxis into the city are readily available and keen walkers can take the picturesque route along the flower-adorned, seafront promenade that skirts the coast from Praia Formosa to Funchal.

The inviting warm waters of Madeira's longest beach, Praia Formosa, lie a 10-minute walk away from the apartment. Facilities on this Blue Flag beach include bars, restaurants and a children's play area.

Golf: The archipelago of Madeira boasts three golf courses: 18-hole Palheiro Golf and 27-hole Santo da Serra Golf Club on the island of Madeira and 27-hole Porto Santo Golf on the neighbouring island of Porto Santo.

The nearest golf course to the apartment is Palheiro Golf, situated some 7 km away in the luxuriant mountainside estate of Quinta do Palheiro, overlooking the ocean and bay of Funchal. Designed by Cabell Robinson, this 18-hole par 72 course is set amidst pine forests some 500m above sea level, its undulating fairways offering majestic views of the ocean, the Deserta islets and the city of Funchal.

The golf club's facilities include a 6-hole academy course, putting and chipping greens, a driving range with bunkers and a fully-equipped Pro shop. The Clubhouse restaurant terrace also offers magnificent views of the ocean and surrounding mountains.
