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, criss-crossing the island, and they have level footpaths running along their entire length.

Funchal - Old town: The settlement of the island began more than five centuries ago in the traditional, colourful Santa Maria neighbourhood, where the street of that name, built in 1430, is the oldest thoroughfare in the city.

The narrow cobbled streets and the restored façades of the old buildings invite us to take a stroll to the traditional Mercado dos Lavradores. Added to the exuberant colours of the flower sellers’ outfits is the exotic mixture of subtropical fruits and vegetables. At the fish market, the scabbard fish and huge, exotic tuna on display beside more common types of fish are a great attraction.

In this neighbourhood, on the way to Forte de São Tiago, now occupied by the Contemporary Art Museum, you will find a variety of cafés and restaurants, some fado houses, the Madeira cable car building, the starting point for the cable car up the city’s hillsides to Monte, the small Corpo Santo Chapel and the Barreirinha Bathing Complex, with access to the sea. Nearby is the Church of Santa Mar

How to get there: Transfer to and from the airport can be 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 €30.00 each way.

Wonderful Spot

  • 5 of 5

A great little apartment well situated in the heart of old town, moments from the restaurants and the local swimming lido. Very well equipped and well maintained. Unless you want to tour the island, you really don't need a car - especially in the evenings where there is enough variety to easily last your stay.

our stay in june

  • 5 of 5

We have been to several apartments all over europe over the past several years...this was one of the best we've visted.

Clean, spacious, wonderful views, great central, but quiet location... but, most of all, SO well equipped.

Everything one could want for cooking - even a pinny and shopping bag !

Placé à deux pas de tous restaurants , bars et proche de la mer .Très propre et très bien agencé . L'agence à l'attente de toutes mes questions et rapide .

Grand merci à Cécilia et Tina .
