Sobre ASPA - São Paulo Studios

ASPA - São Paulo Studios is located in a beautiful building from the early 20th century, of traditional Madeiran architecture, in a well known historical area of the city of Funchal. The studios were designed to cater for the needs of autonomous travellers seeking comfort, centrality and convenience. Our studios provide high speed WiFi, kitchenettes equipped for home-cooking, high standard amenities, and convenience services within walking distance (supermarket, restaurants, bus stations, aerobus and the harbour). Our guests can also practice yoga and take a drink in the terrace, enjoy some great wines from our cellar and work from the lounge area. 

This is a place full of history, with a lot of authenticity and meaning. Decorated in a traditional Portuguese style, with wicker handicraft produced locally for the property, this space aims to do justice to the past, without neglecting comfort and modernity.

We are committed to offering local experiences, including at the table. That is why our traditional breakfast is entirely composed of Portuguese products. However, on request, it is possible to prepare a vegan, ovo-lacto-vegetarian, gluten-free menu.

ASPA, previously named, Apartmentos São Paulo Alegria, started 35 years ago, by the hand of the current owner, José Mendonça, with the mission of offering an alternative accommodation in which guests could truly feel at home. In this family-run property, the atmosphere is relaxed, the communication informal and the team warm and available.

Our studios are located in the corner of Rua da Carreira, and surrounded by numerous points of interest, restaurants and shopping areas. The marina, old town, farmer's market and the cable car are all within walking distance. In the mediations of the building you will find the English Church as well as some of the most beautiful museums in Madeira, such as Quinta das Cruzes.
