The Madeira Region: Here in the Atlantic Ocean, not too far from the centre of Europe, we find the islands of Madeira and Porto Santo.

The archipelago is famous for its friendly people, exceptional natural beauty and mild climate.

Madeira Islands are just a short trip from Europe, to a destination where you can combine holidays on the beach, in the mountains or in the city.

Madeira and Porto Santo are the ideal places to relax and restore the balance of mind and body that you need to face the stress of daily life.

Madeira (Wood) is a beautiful verdant island. It is Portugal's 'Jewel in the Atlantic'. The island is a haven for anyone who enjoys walking, whether your taste runs to gentle strolls or hard core hiking. 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 1300 miles of them, crisscrossing the island, and they have level footpaths running along their entire length.

Garajau Area: Garajau is on the coast between Funchal and Caniço. Its name comes from the huge numbers of garajaus (sandwich terns) that nest here.

There is a promontory here, Ponta do Garajau, where you will find a large statue of Christ the King. The Garajau Partial Nature Reserve was set up in 1986.

Thanks to its biological treasures and the extraordinary transparency of the water, the reserve, which has unique conditions for diving, has gained international fame and divers come here from all over the world.

How to get there: Transfer to and from the airport is arranged by us. Once you have cleared customs & collected your luggage, you will be met by your driver in the arrivals hall. Payment can be made direct to the driver. The charge is €20.00 each way.

Fabulous holiday

  • 5 of 5

We spent a fortnight in Madeira in August and had a wonderful time.

The apartment was clean and well maintained. Unlike other apartments we had been to, this one is furnished to a very high standard and provides an extremely comfortable base for a holiday.Although we ate out much of the time in some fantastic restaurants(most, very reasonably priced) we could also eat in the apartment without difficulty as there is plenty of kitchen equipment and a lovely glass dining table.

The apartments location means that a big supermarket, restaurants and an outstanding bakery are all within easy walking distance.

Certainly whilst we were there the pool area was very quiet particularly until mid afternoon providing a perfect opportunity to relax.

Madeira itself has so much to offer from busy Funchal to lovely little fishing villages.We enjoyed the hop on and off bus tour which enabled us to see various part of the island we would otherwise have missed.

We would recommend the apartment and our trip to Madeira and would hope to visit again.

Relaxing Holiday

  • 5 of 5

We stayed here May 2010, the weather wasnt great but we still had a relaxing time. There were 4 of us in our group all under 30, i would say were were definatly too young to holiday here, but the apartment made up for that by having cable tv and lots of Dvds to watch. It was lovely and clean and very modern. We would definatly recommend this to people the photos are very accurate.

I would how ever mention that some stickers of some sort be put onto the patio door as we had 2 people walk into it when it was closed.... oops!

Managing agents were very helpful and would overall recommend this destination to anyone who is fit and able!

L appartement est conforme à la description.Par contre il est préférable de le louer en dehors de l' hiver car en Décembre nous avons eu froid.Le linge du lit devrait être renouveler car vieux pour un appartement en location.

Sinon il y avait tout ce qu il fallait.La piscine peut être utilisé qu' en été.

De woning zag er net zo mooi uit als op de foto's.

  • 3 of 5

Keurig appartement, netjes en verzorgd. heeft alle voorzieningen die je nodig hebt! dichtstbijzijnde strand is wel 15 minuten lopen! Wij hebben de eerste week veel gebruik gemaakt van het openbaar vervoer en de taxi, en dat is prima te doen, vooral naar Funchal, leuke stad!. De tweede week een auto gehuurd, en dat is echt een aanrader om meer van het eiland te zien of een ander strand (bijv. Caletha Beach) te bezoeken. Trip maken om dolfijnen te zien is een must, wij hebben heel veel dolfijnen en 2 walvissen kunnen zien! Restaurantjes in Garajau prima, en ook een prima bakker en grote supermarkt vlakbij! Kortom: een prima vakantie en gelukkig 2 weken mooi weer gehad!

Car: recommended

Located on the sunny, dry, southern coast of Madeira, Garajau is situated, midway between the airport, and the capital, Funchal. Taxi journey time to both is just 12 minutes. Garajau has long been known to be one of Madeira’s high class residential areas and is named after the black-headed sea birds, terns, which nest in the cliffs. Just below the town is a 200m high headland with a fine 'miradouro' - a statue of Christ with outstretched arms, similar to the larger statues in Rio de Janeiro. This is a wonderful spot to watch the sun go down and it has great views west to the Bay of Funchal. The coastline here at Garajau is also a conservation area, and was one of Europe’s first underwater nature reserves, providing sanctuary for whales, dolphins and seals. The sea shore has now been updated and opened up with a new cable car to take visitors down on to the beach .scuba diving companies hire out equipment, give scuba diving lessons, and organize excursions.

Golf: Golfers will be pleased to know that the new 18-hole Palheiro golf course is no more than a 20 minute drive. Classic Madeiran hills, ridges and deep valleys have all been incorporated into the terrain to produce a dramatically interesting course, with stunning views. The spectacular 27-hole Santo da Serra golf course (also known as Campo de Golfe and home to the Madeira Island Open) is also within easy reach. This is Madeira’s oldest golf course. It sits high up on a plateau and is marvelous scenic with inspirational views back up the mountains and out over the Atlantic below.
