    Car hire reviews in Funchal

    Car Hire Funchal ReviewsWith its irresistible oceanside setting, the vibrant city of Funchal has been attracting tourists for centuries. Set against a splendid backdrop of craggy volcanic mountains, it is the capital of a lush, subtropical island affectionately known as the Atlantic's Floating Garden. Downtown Funchal is full of tourist interest, particularly amidst the winding cobbled streets of the Old Town where many colonial-style buildings and impressive state buildings can be seen. Built between 1486 and 1514, Funchal Cathedral is worth seeing for its marvellous mudejar ceiling of Madeira cedar wood and many other fine features. A prerequisite for wine lovers is a visit to the ever-popular Blandy’s Wine Lodge next door to the tourist office in the centre of town. Housed in a 17th-century former Franciscan friary, visitors can enjoy a tour of the premises comprising a wine-making museum and cellars before tasting and buying the different wines. With a car hire in Funchal you'll have all the flexibility you'll need to tour the area and see some of the local attractions, including the beautiful Botanical Gardens a short drive to the east of the city. Also within easy reach of Funchal are the deep valley location of Curral das Freiras (meaning Refuge of the Nuns) in the centre of the island and the pretty fishing village of Câmara de Lobos to the west, a favourite spot for Sir Winston Churchill in the 1950s, both easily accessible by car.
