The property boasts a
spectacular hillside location with panoramic views over the surrounding area
and Funchal. The historic centre of Funchal is around 20 minutes walk or can be easily reached using the courtesy bus provided by the hotel.
The centre of Funchal retains a fantastic charm with cobbled streets, beautiful restaurants
serving some fascinating local cuisine and a long, wide promenade
- the perfect place to walk off an indulgent dinner and soak up the spectacular Ocean views!
A popular daytrip is to the village of Curral das Freiras (Nun's Valley)
- a short (but almost vertical!) bus ride from the bustle of Funchal's seafront. It is home to that typical Madeiran combination of awe-inspiring mountain scenery, delicious food and welcoming locals.
The village is known for its chestnuts and a cherry liquor
called ginja , drunk across the island from shot glasses made of dark chocolate.
