Pico Maisonette Apartment
Cozy Maisonette Sea View Apartment in an Old Funchal Neighbourhood
Description: Located just a few minutes walk from many of Funchal's most popular "must see places" you are living in the real city not the hotel tourist zone located several miles away from the city centre.
This new luxury attic conversion has breathtaking views of Funchal city, the Harbour and out over the Atlantic towards the Desert Islands. It is the perfect place for relaxing whilst enjoying the annual fireworks shows every Saturday in June and of course spectacular city wide display celebrating the New Year.
You can watch (and often even hear) the daily comings and goings of the many cruise ships which visit this spectacular island plus the assorted little pleasure boats that sail in and out often 2 or 3 times a day.
A variety of local cafes and small "corner" shops are located nearby and there is a large "Continent" supermarket with free parking just a short drive away. The new Dolce Vita shopping centre with an alternative supermarket is also only 10 mins walk away.
You must also visit the Pico Castle which is literally just around the corner for even better views over the entire city.
If you want to dine out in style you have many places to choose from including the beautiful Quinta das Cruzes & Jardim da Largo restaurants both of which are within a few minutes walk of the Apartment.
There is a local bus service just up the road and the little "Eco" electric bus route runs from the bottom of the road too.
If you do not want to walk back up to the house (we are at an approximate elevation of 100m above the city sea front), there are taxi ranks throughout the city centre and a taxi ride to the front door costs on average €5 to €6.
On road parking is usually available nearby if you decide to hire a car and explore more of this beautiful island on your own.
Guided bus & taxi tours, both of the city and island, are also available in Funchal if you prefer to let someone else do the driving.
2 rechargeable "Giro" bus passes are also provided for your use on local buses.
