Live the centenary history of Madeira Embroidery in an apartment with excellent design and memories of regional culture.
Right in the centre of Funchal, right next to the Farmers Market, this fantastic apartment offers you all the convenience.
Set in a building that housed an old Madeira Embroidery Factory, this property is divided into six independent fractions, each named after well-known Madeira Embroidery stitching.
With a modern and functional architecture, these studios have small notes that take you back to the past and make you know a little about the embroidery of the island. With a bedroom with double bed, one bathroom and fully equipped kitchen, the apartment has the capacity to accommodate two people.
For those who like to enjoy a good time of relaxation, you can enjoy the pleasant communal terrace, available on the rooftop of the building, which has a kitchen, so you can cook your meals.
On the same terrace there is a common laundry room to the building.
THE NEIGHBORHOOD OVERVIEW
Drapes is situated in a privileged central area, right in the heart of Funchal. Within a few steps from the famous Farmers’ Market (Mercado dos Lavradores) and the historic centre of Funchal (locally known as ‘Zona Velha’), from here you can explore by foot many of the main tourist attractions of our beautiful town. (e.g. The Cable Car, Funchal Marina, CR7 Museum, Cathedral, Madeira Wine Lodge, etc ...)
Just right in front of the building you have an excellent connection to the local and intercity bus network, connecting you to all places in the island, and covering both the east and west regions, so that it will not be necessary to go far in case you want to benefit from these services. In addition to these facilities, the building has a shopping centre with several shops, cafés, restaurants and a medium-sized supermarket.
With a bus stop practically at the doorstep, transport will be no problem for our guests.
Although a aerobus bus stop for airport arrivals and departures is within 2 minutes walk distance from the flat, we recommend the private transfer service as the best option to get to the flat. Contact us in advance to schedule a private transfer car with our local partners. It is cheaper than taking a taxi by your own in the airport!
Guests have access to all areas of the flat.

Super nice Airbnb in downtown Funchal!
We loved our stay at Drapes Design, the apartment looks very new, is clean and spacious, and the kitchen has everything you could need for your stay. The location is ideal, just by the Mercado dos Lavradores in downtown Funchal, with a supermarket 1 minute away and bus stops just downstairs. The team was super responsive too. The rooftop is the cherry on top with a super nice view over the city :)May 2022

Great downtown location!
I have enjoyed my stay very much. The central downtown location makes it a good starting point for all activities. Bus stop at the building entrance, shopping and parking in the building, beautiful common area roof-top terrace, market, harbour.....all within quick walking distance. This incluces the expected dowtown noise level, you easily get used to. Do not expect a quiet place near the water or beach. The modern windows-fassade cannot block the street's noise. I have made suggestions for easily possible improvements of the single-pane-fassade above the windows up to the same top quality the rest of fassade and windows already have. With these improvements, I would give it 5-stars. The well equipt apartment is modern and bright with all amanities including air conditioning, easy to use. Internet works perfectly. TV-programs are restricted, but not necessary for an outside vacation. The pictures on the webside show reality. You quickly feel at home. On- and offline-services works very well and are quickly responsive. Jan Christoph KersigOctober 2020
