Hotel Albergaria Dias details
A peaceful, family-run delight.
As pretty as they come, the Albergaria is a true Madeiran gem. Tucked away in the hills above Funchal’s old town, it’s delightfully secluded. But that’s not to say you’re off the beaten track here. In fact, head out the back gate and you can wind your way down in to Funchal in no time. Here, you can pop in and out of the shops. Tuck in to a slap up meal at one of the restaurants. Or pull up a chair at a waterside bar and watch the world go by.
Once you clap eyes on this attractive hotel though, you might decide to spend a large chunk of your time here. With its terracotta-tiled roof and wooden shuttered windows, it’s traditional charm on a plate. And you’ll be given an authentic Madieran welcome too, by Joao and his family and their friendly staff. With just 35 rooms, you’re always treated like one of the family here, never a room number.
Once you’ve checked into your restful room with extras like bathrobes, start as you mean to go on by the sparkling pool. Taking centre stage in the flower-filled grounds, it’s sunk in to a pretty patio with sun loungers and parasols. And when you’re in need of a break from the sun, take a seat on the shaded terrace and sip an ice-cold drink. Breakfast is also served here, which is a lovely start to the day.
Step inside and you’ll be just as impressed with what the Albergaria has to offer. We’re talking a swish lobby with sink-into sofas. A stylish breakfast room with frescoed walls. And a laid-back bar with elegant wicker chairs. And if you fancy burning off some calories while you’re here, there’s a small fitness room with a sauna. For a relaxing getaway with Funchal on your doorstep, look no further than this friendly charmer.
