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.
A perfect place to welcome a family with kids or just the two, friends... as we have two double bedrooms and a sofa bed for one in the living room.
P.S. Excuse us for the wallpaper in every room, but we are addicted.

We love pampering our guests so... as a complimentary service we awake your senses with shower amenities by dutch brand Rituals, fresh flowers, delicious apples (we believe an apple a day keeps the doctor away), a portuguese bottle of wine + cheese (we believe in made in Portugal) and a few more surprises...

Please enjoy...
a modern kitchen, totally equiped, where you can release your inner cook;
a cozy dining/living room where you can enjoy your meals or simply relax, watch a good movie, instagram, tweet...;
two double bedrooms, independent in style, but with love for design, colour and comfort in common;
and last but not least, a bright modern bathroom where you can have a revitalizing shower.

With the little ones in mind, as we renovated THE L when I was pregnant of my baby girl Laura ("THE L" comes from her name), we can provide complimentary kids' household linen and dining utensils, as well as a crib upon request.

We are also travellers, we understand the need to feel welcome at a foreign country so... we are always available for our guests and more than happy to share all of our privileged insider tips.

It's a peaceful neighbourhood, only 10 minute walk from city centre.
ATM, cafe, grocery store and supermarket 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 minute drive: 3 Km) with its beautiful Tropical Monte Palace Garden. A must place to visit.
The famous Old Town is at a distance of 25 minute walk. There you can find some very nice restaurants and bars.

THE L Apartment is a 17 minute (20 km) drive from the airport.
Guests have several options:
- By car rental.
- By taxi.
- By bus (SAM): After you leave the arrival's hall follow the main road and keep on the right hand side.
After approximately 100 m you'll find a bus stop. The ticket to Funchal is payable on board and only costs a few Euros.
When in Funchal you can take a taxi or bus number 20, 21 or 23 to THE L Apartment. The name of the stop is Rua do Til - Apartamentos Vermelhos.
Just ahead you'll see the name of the street where the apartment is located: Travessa Costa Dias.
- By Aero-bus: Express bus service.
In the City centre you can take a taxi or buses 20, 21 or 23.

If you rented a car, don't worry... we have an exterior private park space free of charge.
If you didn't and feel a bit tired to walk, you can call a taxi or just take the first bus that goes to the city centre just across the street. There are several.

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, spanish tapas and paellas, indian, chinese, japanese and even a Michelin star restaurant. There are restaurants for every budget and the food is delicious in almost of them.
Our nightlife is a must, you've got to try it, with most of the bars being concentrated in the city center, especially in The Old Town.
Christmas and New Year's Eve, one of our favourite time of the year, is very special around here. The city centre transforms itself in a gigantic Christmas crib, where streets and trees are iluminated with lots of small lights of different colours and little wood cabins are built to lodge some of our traditional sweets and beverages for people to try them.
We all look forward for 31 December for our fabulous firework. It's unbelievable!!!
Early February we celebrate Carnival, it's not like the Brasilian one, nor the Venice, but it's OURS and it's very special. We have our own parade at 6 February 2016.
After Easter comes the Flower Festival from 7 to 13 April 2016, a magic period where flowers and children are the queens. The children's parade is on the 10th.
Also in April 2016, from 20 to 24, we have the Madeira Island Ultra Trail. The competition covers sloping and mountainous terrain, footpaths and water channels in 3 events: 20 km, 42 km and 85 km trails. A beautiful journey where you can appreciate nature's best.
In June, every saturday night, we have fireworks (Atlantic Festival) and the SUMMER... what can we say about it... simply LOVE!!!
From 28 August to 4 September 2016 we have Madeira Wine Festival. Did you know that the independence of the United States of America (1776) was toasted with Madeira wine?
October 2016, from 4 to 9, discover the Madeira Nature Festival. Lots of activities on the ground and on the sea, explore our Laurel Forest (UNESCO World Natural Heritage Site), walk along the levada waterways, fly over the sea and mountains or dive in the ocean. Enjoy every minute of it!
Don't forget us, you'll feel like HOME, maybe even better...

Catarina User Profile

Hi, my name is Catarina and we are a family of 3.
My husband Angelo is a lawyer and I am founder of a lifestyle concept store named RAW Dstore.
We studied in Lisbon but decided to live in Funchal after that because here we can enjoy a more slow life. We love living by the sea and at the same time just being steps away from the countryside. Everything is near by and when we miss the big cities we can always take a plane and discover new places.
We travel together since we started dating in our teens and now that we have a child we want her to discover how magical this is.
