Quinta Mae dos Homens: "Funchal Self-Catering" Funchal Hotel Tip by ceebeelondon
Funchal Hotels: 40 reviews and 65 photos
First impressions grim: adjacent to a large school; no-one to carry luggage. Minibar but no freebies. (Teabags and milk would be nice!) But good thereafter. Apartment in old Lagar very sensibly designed: open-plan living space with kitchen, dining area, lounge and sliding picture window with superb view, as from terrace. Bathroom basic, with over-bath shower. Reliable bus service to and from town proper (about 15 minutes walk and it's steep). Telly and telephone too. Comfortable, practical, fuss-free and pretty.
Unique Qualities: Lovely pool (a bit chilly when we went in November) with a fantastic view.
Good base for exploring on foot - orchid centre and botanical gardens are walkable distance UPhill for those with strong knees.
(Hopefully the local lad with the noisy motor-scooter will trade up to a car fairly soon!)
