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 two bedroom with double bed, two bathroom and fully equipped kitchen, the apartment has the capacity to accommodate four 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.
According to Portuguese law, all guests are required to present a valid ID. (E.g. passport, identity card).
Check-in must be scheduled in advance. In case the check-in is not scheduled within a maximum of 48 hours prior arrival, guests will be subject to the availability of our team.
All bed linen and towels are provided. We can also provide a crib, a baby high chair and a baby bathtub if needed. First aid kit, fire extinguisher and fire blanket are available in all properties.
We want you to feel right at home! Thank you for respecting the neighbours and for not smoking inside the properties.

Slap bang in town,couldn't be in a better location for access to all parts of the city. Everything is on the doorstep, the bus stop is actually directly on it. Spotlessly clean and more than comfortable enough for a city break. Every conceivable utensil in the kitchen. Good shower. Excellent wi fi. Would definitely stay here again.January 2023

The best choice on our trip.October 2022

Spacious, spotless and great location
We were initially concerned about the Location as on a busy road with street access behind a busy bus stop. However, once inside the modern glass door (pin code access) everything about the double apartment 2A on second floor (easy stairs) was faultless. Double glazing and air conditioning meant the road was irrelevant. I’ve never stayed in an apartment as well equipped (even a dishwasher!), spacious and clean as this. BBC and Sky news kept us in touch. We had a small private terrace at the back as well as the big shared roof terrace, with great sea views from both the flat and the roof terrace. Almost opposite the central Funchal Market, with the old town restaurants (including a great fado place) and poncha bars, towards the fort in one direction or the main shopping street in the other, with the seafront very close. No steep hills to negotiate unlike the main hotel areas! Highly recommended.June 2022
