The beautiful verdant island of Madeira (wood) is Portugal's 'Jewel in the Atlantic' and is considered one of the most beautiful islands in Europe. It has a spectacular & varied landscape of breathtaking proportions. Its wonderful luxuriant flowers & plants bloom all the year round.
The landscape is covered in a green mantle of rich subtropical foliage. The variety and profusion of flowers makes the island a permanent floating flower show. Birds of paradise, with their bright orange beak-like flowers blossom in open fields. Fragrant hydrangeas line walking paths [levadas] that skirt the edges of mountain terraces.
The island is a haven for anyone who enjoys being outside, whether your taste runs to gentle walks or hiking
Madeira: Madeira's system of irrigation channels, known as levadas, carry water down from the mountains on gentle gradients. These levadas provide a ready-made system of trails. There are 1,300 miles of them criss-crossing the island and they have level footpaths running along their entire length. Walkers of all ages & abilities can take in some of the finest countryside anywhere.
Its greatest attraction is the subtropical climate, sometimes referred to as the 'island of eternal spring'. Even in winter the temperature rarely falls below 17C and rarely exceeds 23C in high summer.
Madeira is a place of moderation in most things. A haven of civilised peace, where respect and old world manners have yet to become outdated. The people are gracious, helpful and friendly.
The landscape and vegetation coupled with the ever-friendly Madeirans and appetising food combine to ensure that Madeira is a place of immense appeal which draws one back again and again.
I am self employed. I intend to live in Madeira when I retire.
I bought a property in Madeira in 1999 to live in when I retire, but decided to let it until I move there. Because I enjoy renting, I decided I would like to continue renting when I move, so bought this property by the sea shore to have as a rental property and an interest during my retirement.
Penthouse right by the sea shore. Veranda to walk around and follow the sun and shade throughout the day. Conservatory to sit in at night and listen to the water lap on the sea shore. A piece of heaven.
