THE L is a contemporary apartment, full of light and airy. A mix of designer modern pieces with some treasures we already owned creating a sensation of comfort and well being.

The Apartment has everything you need. Catarina and Angelo gave us really good hints about surroundings like Supermarket, bakery.... We were excited about the miscellaneos possibilities in Funchal and the very friendly People around us. We will come back and will try to book the Apartment again! Thank you for the perfect Holiday.

Management response:

Dear Sarah & Kai, It was a pleasure to have you at THE L. We are so glad you enjoyed your stay. Love, Catarina & Angelo

We loved everything about the apartment. It was light, airy, spacious, well equipped and very clean. We liked that we were staying in a neighbourhood rather than being in the rather impersonal western end of the city with all its hotels. Catarina was a fantastic hostess. She met us on arrival and showed us around the apartment, and had lots...

The L Apartment is the perfect base for a holiday in Madeira. We stayed for 7 nights over Christmas and it was marvellous. The bedrooms are spacious and comfortable. We loved the whimsical and contemporary design of the flat. Our breakfasts were delightful at the huge table with light spilling in from the large window. The apartment is walking distance...

Thank you so much for your kind and truly delightful words. THE L Apartment was named after our baby girl Laura, I was pregnant when we did the renovation, so I know Lauras are always gentle. Glad we saved your Christmas!

About the neighbourhood
Funchal, Madeira island's capital, is a small but very cosy city.
The city center, by the sea, is full of wonderful shops and cafes where you can relax in an esplanade and enjoy our Winter/Summer sun.
Our climate is mediterranean so we don't have a very cold Winter (average of 18º C) but we do have warm Summers (average of 25º C).
We have several beaches in the city centre as we are surrounded by sea.
There are restaurants in almost 'every corner' where you can taste all kinds of different flavours: our traditional cuisine, italian, indian, japanese and even two Michelin star restaurants. There are restaurants for every budget and the food is delicious in almost of them.
Hope you enjoy every minute of our stay :))!

ATM, cafe, supermarket and bus stop are just across the street.
At the end of the street there's a great/wonderful garden with a cafe and a kids' playground with slides and swings.
Monte is nearby (7 minutes drive: 3 Km) with its beautiful Tropical Monte Palace Garden. A must place to visit.
