The perfect place for working remotely or simply have a quiet and relaxing holiday!
• PRIVILEGED LOCATION
This lovely apartment is part of the Winepress Apartments of Quinta Mãe dos Homens Garden Village, a very charming self-catering holiday resort within the grounds of a historical Madeiran property, belonging to the heirs of the Viscount of Cacongo.
Beautifully located on a hillside overlooking the Funchal bay, and with superb views across the town to the harbour and the sea, this family-run unit is surrounded by stunning gardens, with beautiful exotic flowers and trees from Madeira's flora, as well as some cultivated land with homegrown vegetables and tropical fruit trees.
• SPACIOUS APARTMENT
The Malmsey Apartment has a spacious sitting room/ dining area with a full open plan kitchen, a separate double bedroom, a separate bathroom, as well as a lovely terrace overlooking the inviting gardens of the property and the sea. Accommodates up to 3 people with the use of sofa-bed. We can also add a cot and a high-chair if needed.
• LOVELY AMENITIES & STAFF SUPPORT
One of the best things about staying with us at the Quinta is that you can enjoy all the property amenities, from our wonderful swimming pool and garden areas, to private parking and a clubhouse with a communal terrace with WiFi coverage, where you can work or simply relax and meet with other guests.
The Quinta also provides you with weekly cleaning service with change of towels and linen, free of charge, and laundry service upon request with a minimal charge.
Our reception is open during working hours, where our friendly staff can assist you with any requests and even, for your convenience, book a great diversity of transport, touristic and entertainment services.
• CONVENIENT SERVICES NEARBY
Located in a quiet residential area of Funchal, you have two minimarkets nearby and up the hill a variety of convenient shops all within a 5 min walk. The Quinta is also only a 10 min walk down the hill to the east side of the old town, where you have a great variety of local bars, restaurants, and shops, as well as a shopping centre and the traditional farmers’ market. The airport is a 15-20 minute ride away.
• HOW TO MOVE AROUND
There is a bus stop right next to the Quinta, where you can catch a bus to the city centre, and for departures and arrivals from the airport, there is an Aerobus stop up the hill (5 min walk). You may as well ask us to book a transfer with our local partners, as it is cheaper than the taxis you find at the airport, or rent a car, bike or bicycle to explore the city and the island.

Once you send a reservation request, the landlord is notified that you are interested in their offer. From that moment, they have 24 hours to approve or reject your reservation.
Landlords are mainly interested in the profile of their tenant. Do not forget to fill in all necessary information, add your profile picture, or even make a short video about yourself. Doing that will make you more attractive for the owner and your reservation will more likely get approved.
You can take a look at the contract in advance and online with every offer. After you sign it, you will find it in the application My Housing.
While arranging a contract on Flatio, you do not have to worry that it could be disadvantageous for you. Our contracts are made so that we avoid all problems! All of them are the same, used by all the landlords on Flatio.
Why would you waste time on personal apartment tours? Just use our virtual tour, which allows you to visit several flats in a just a few minutes, and you don't even have to leave your house.
We vouch for all our flat offers! If one does not look like it does on our website, you will get your money back and we will arrange compensatory accommodation for you.
How you can cancel a reservation varies depending on what stage the reservation is in.
Is your reservation request still waiting for landlord approval? Then you can simply cancel it directly from your My Housing web app!
However, suppose the owner has already approved your reservation request, and you are no longer interested in it. In that case, you can still cancel the reservation before you sign the lease agreement. Just consider that you should do this only in essential cases. Because when the landlord accepts your reservation, their property is stopped being advertised, and they can lose the chance to rent their property to someone else.
Do you have an approved reservation and also a valid agreement? In order to cancel your reservation, contact Flatio customer support well in advance of your contract beginning (the specific time and amount of refund depends on the type of cancellation policy).
