Luxury flat, in historic building, in Funchal city centre.
Bual or Boal is a Portuguese grape variety used for the production of Madeira Wine, widely cultivated during the 18th and 19th centuries.
Bual is part of a group of properties called "The Wine Lodges", located in the heart of the city in a historic building, which houses one of the most important Madeira wine cellars belonging to the iconic Blandy family.
With a decoration thought to detail, where elegance coexists in symbiosis with the building's history, this property offers excellent comfort and luxury details without equality.
The flat has generous spaces, making it perfect for a holiday with a group of friends or family.
Situated on the second floor, in its total area we find a master bedroom, with double bed and two balconies overlooking the Municipal Garden. The guest bedroom is equipped with two single beds and the living room has a sofa bed for two people.
This property accommodates a maximum of six people.
The property is located in the noble and central area of Funchal. From this property, you will be able to know all the downtown and main points of interest. This flat is situated right next to the famous Municipal Garden of Funchal and very close to the Funchal Marina and the Municipal Theatre.
In the same building of the property you can visit one of the most important Madeira wine lodges Blandy's Wine Lodges is open daily for tastings and guided tours. In these same lodges you may get to know and purchase a wide range of wines, which you may later pick up at the airport after passing through customs. Guests of this property have one free ticket per couple.
Another must is the bar and restaurant "1811 Wine Bar", which is located in the same building. Here, you can enjoy unique delicacies accompanied by excellent wines. Our guests are granted an exclusive discount in this fantastic space.
In the city centre there is plenty of information about all kinds of activities you can do during your holiday: cultural activities, radical activities, activities linked to nature... whatever the purpose of your visit to Madeira Island!
The best option to get to the property will be the transfer. Ask us to book one with our local partners. It is cheaper than the taxis you find at the airport.

Funchal Airport Delays
Found you were good people to deal with. Will not return to Madeira because of the delays at Madeira airport. We had to wait over an hour just to clear immigration , being elderly we found this both tiring and distressing . The queue's are entirely avoidable by opening up more checkouts. There were well over 1000 people in the queue and the airport authorities took no action to remedy the situation.January 2024

Charming apartment in the historical center
We spent three days in this charming old fashioned apartment, with a lot of space and light. The location is paramount, at the center of the city, in a very nice setting overlooking the municipal garden. The surroundings are a bit noisy at times but the flat is well isolated. Very comfortable overall. Would definitely recommend.May 2023

To be recommended
Excellent location close to centre of Funchal, comfortable, spacious, well-equipped, generally quiet - an ideal place to stay in Funchal. No lift, but good wide stairway not too steep so easy even with suitcases. Helpful staff and arrangements for transfers to/from airport made through An Island Apart worked perfectly.November 2022

Great stay in the center of Funchal
The apartment was great in many ways: size, cleanness, appliances, sound proofing. There's really nothing negative to mention. Just a heads up that, if you have a car, it can be a bit tricky to find free parking but that comes with the central location.August 2022
