We are now open and welcoming guests to Funchal Cottages. Madeira Island has maintained a very low Covid rate, making it one of the safest places in the world. The local authorities have put in place safety measures for guests arriving in Madeira – You can take a free Covid test on arrival at the airport here or take one 72h before travelling. This guarantees Madeira Island remains a safe destination for all who visit and live here. It also means shops, restaurants and life is quite normal & fun as we like it. We are fully committed to making sure you have the best time here & have spent all Spring working on upgrades to the houses, ensuring the best Internet available & making full renovations to the properties.
HEALTH & SAFETY
All our houses will be meticulously cleaned and sanitised, using professionally certified products effective against Covid-19 and each property will be thoroughly disinfected after each departure. There will be significantly increased time for our housekeeping team to completely prepare your property for arrival and maximum possible time between one guest leaving and the next arriving.
