Location description from owner

The Madeira Islands region

Funchal, the capital city of Madeira, is a vibrant town with a rich history and culture closely connected with the Portuguese Age of Discoveries. Funchal offers many museums where you can explore the history of the island, all within walking distance from Mansarda dos Aranhas. Funchal is also renowned for its green areas, most notably Parque de Santa Catarina and Jardim Municipal. You can reach both by foot from Mansarda dos Aranhas in less than 5 minutes. Another highlight is the Old Town and its quaint narrow streets, that can be reached after a gentle 15 minute stroll across the centre. If you like castles and fortresses, you should visit Forte de São Tiago in the old Town, Palácio de São Lourenço, near the Cathedral, and Fortaleza de São João Baptista, which overlooks Funchal and offers spectacular views of the bay.

There are a number of activities to be enjoyed in Madeira, which include mountain and levada walks in the Laurissilva, Madeira's UNESCO World Heritage forest, "an outstanding relict of a previously widespread laurel forest type". Laurissilva is a forest that originated about 20 million years ago, and which once occupied the whole of what was later to become the Mediterranean Bay. The subsequent Ice Ages led to the extiction of this primeavel forest across Europe, having survived in the Macaronesian islands of the Atlantic Ocean. The largest and most well-preserved area of this forest is found in the highlands of Madeira and there are about 30 officially certified footpaths that will allow you to discover Laurissilva in its purest form. Of these walks, the path between Pico do Arieiro and Pico Ruivo is by many considered one of the best moutain hikes in the world.

You can also enjoy scuba diving in Madeira's marine reserve of Garajau, famous for the very large groupers that inhabit it. There is a number of scuba-diving companies in Funchal's Marina (5 minute walk from Mansarda dos Aranhas) that can help you organize a dive.

Whale watching, big game fishing and sea trips in Columbus' Nau de Santa Maria replica can also be enjoyed. Many of these sea trips depart from the Marina of Funchal and they provide a good opportunity to sea dipping in the deep blue waters of Madeira.

If you're into golf, you'll find out why Madeira is considered a paradise for golfers that atracts many high-level and professional players. There are two golf courses in Madeira Island: Palheiro Golf and the course of Santo da Serra's Golf Club. A third golf course can be found in the neighbour island of Porto Santo, which you can reach by ferry boat (2,5 hours away, daily departures).

“Wonderful holiday apartment”

Reviewed 29 Aug 2016

We spent a month on the wonderful island of Madeira staying in this lovely apartment. It is situated centrally in Funchal with all ameneties to hand, it is clean and well kept and has all the essentials you need for your stay. Berta and Pedro are lovely people who will help you with anything if they can. The fridge was filled with milk, cheese, butter etc and even a bottle of wine which was very much appreciated. The apartment has two balconies which we spent many hours on eating breakfast and lunch and just relaxing in the deck chairs. We had a wonderful holiday in this apartment it felt so homely, we definitely will be back.
