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.
