Great Apartment By the Beach with Pool

Located in: Sâo Martinho, Funchal
(I started to manage this apartment from September 2018)
The apartment building is right on the beach (Formosa Beach), in a quit 4 stars aparthotel (Pestana Ocean Gardens, is side by side with Pestana Bay) , in west Funchal, with no noisy roadway between you and the spectacular views, with swimming pool, pool bar, direct access to the beach and to the ocean promenade and reception 24h/day. The apartment is self-catered.

It is located on the 2º floor (2 lifts are available), it is a spacious apartment (134 m2) with great view over the ocean and pool. Beautiful sunset and beach views from the spacious balcony. With the advantage of having everything you need for a comfortable staying at a short walking distance.

You have a local restaurants and coffee shops with esplanade by the sea, as well as grocery store, pastries, pharmacy, bank and car rental, at less than 10 minutes walking.

The apartment has been a privately owned, family holiday apartment for the last years, and is very well equipped.
The kitchen has all the appliances you would find at home, although there are plenty of lovely cafes and restaurants close by, if cooking isn’t on your agenda!

If you do opt for some home-cooking, we would recommend the beautiful fresh fish and vegetables for sale on the island. We love cooking when we stay down there. Evenings on the terrace are very relaxing, dining and watching the sun setting.

The apartment was renovated in 2016 and simply decorated, but still has a lovely comfortable feel to it. It is our home from home!

It is situated in an aparthotel complex with swimming pool, games room, bar and direct access to the beach. The reception desk is open 24h/day.
The large sunny windows face south-west, and the Atlantic sunsets are spectacular from the balcony. The sun sets over the sea, in line with the highest cliffs in Europe.

The apartment has:
- free internet (wireless internet)
- Cable Tv with more than 100 channels
- UK & Irish Channels by satellite (*)
- NetFlix (*)

(*) This is not common to find in other apartments

The apartment is located to the west of the municipality of Funchal, 10 minutes by car or Bus (Buses run every 10 minutes and there are bus stops every 200 meters along the monumental road), and 30/40 minutes by foot, from the heart of the city (4,9 km), Praia Formosa is the only public beach that, through a promenade, unites two cities of the region, Funchal and Câmara dos Lobos.
With a length of 2 km, it is divided into four sandy and pebble beaches, known as Praia Nova, Formosa, Namorados and Areeiro. The quality of sea water is certified by the Blue Flag of the European Community. It is considered by many Madeira and tourists to its beach of choice.
Praia Formosa is accessible to all, without compromising the age and the difficulties of locomotion or mobility, being the only beach in the country adapted for the blind, for which it was awarded the "Affordable Beach 2015" award.
The apartment is near Doca do Cavacas, lava pools, 5 minutes walking distance and near the best restaurants used by local people, for example Barqueiro, Doca do Cavacas, By the Sea for fish and Espettus for meat and much more (Real Canoa, Bear Garden, Clássico etc).
It is near as well of Shopping Center called Forum Madeira, all at a walking distance.

Going Around:
Nearby you have some restaurants and coffee shops for your first meal (a local fish restaurant “By The Sea”, just leaving the parking area, at your right side).
Two doors after the restaurant you have a “lounge bar” called “Maresia” for a drink (they are open in the afternoon and evening).
After these restaurant and bar you will find some steps on your right. These stairs lead you to the street above, the main street called Estrada Monumental where you have everything: a bus stop (all the buses run on this road, namely the yellow ones that go to the city center); a grocery (that sells fruits, vegetables and basics like water, milk, etc.); a bakery & coffee shop; a pharmacy; a rent-a-car company and a bank (all just crossing the main road).
If you keep walking along this main street to the right you will find the Forum Madeira” shopping center with a bigger supermarket (10 minutes walking). This is big building with a palm trees entrance on the left side of the avenue. The supermarket is called “Pingo Doce” and it is situated inside the shopping centre on the ground zero (it opens at 9h am and closes at 10h pm every day, including Sundays). I remember there is a taxi rank just in front of the shopping center in case you would like to use it to get back to your apartment (situated in Pestana Aparthotel complex, by Formosa Beach).

Than if you keep walking along this street you will reach Lido village and then Funchal city centre in the end.

From your balcony to the left side you will sea Doca do cavacas (Lava Pools) and a blue restaurant for fish called “Doca do Cavacas” (they close on Mondays).

From your apartment complex pool door to the right side:
Backing to your apartment complex:
From your balcony you can see a big cliff called Cabo Girão with 580m high.
From your complex to the right you can reach the beach and have a great walk to the right side where you will find more restaurants and coffee shops along the beach and a black sand beach.
This walking path goes direction to the next fisherman's village Câmara de Lobos” (from the last white restaurant by the beach it will be 3 kms to reach the fisherman’s village – easy walk; flat). This walking it is better to do in the morning....

Enjoy :)
