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.

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 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 €20.00 each way.

Lovely apartment

  • 5 of 5

The apartment is extremely comfortable and clean and is situated in a very nice residential area with lovely peaceful views of the sea. Also is so close to the main street of Garajau with all the restaurants and cafes, chemist, banks and supermarkets, but the town has a very local feel to it with prices to match - great value and very relaxing. Am definitely going back

Lovely modern apartment, we'll be going back

  • 5 of 5

This is a lovely comfortable apartment and had everything we needed for our 1 week's stay. It is well situated approx 15 min drive from Funchal, 10 mins from Santa Cruz near the airport and 15mins from Machico with a sandy beach. Garagau has a local supermarket and fruit&veg shops as well as a good coffee shop. The local resturants are value for money and the staff really friendly and helpful. The local beach is a cable car ride just a few mins away. You don't need a car but it helps if you want to explore the island at your own pace and get to the northern coast which is well worth a visit.

Superb self catering in Garajau

  • 5 of 5

We were very impressed with the standard of the apartment. More spacious than we expected. We liked the quiet, secure residential setting.

Bars, restaurants and supermarkets just a few minutes walk away. Flor Do Garajau was our favourite coffee bar at the end of the main street (great pastries, filled rolls too). Restaurant Tourigalo by the bus stop does amazing take-aways Portuguese style. Locals were friendly and helpful.

The Dom Pedro Hotel in the main street has the local bus times to Funchal, a scenic 25 minute ride along the coast (1.70 euros single). Buses are regular and reliable. This hotel can also arrange levada walks and tours for you (pick up and drop off at the hotel).

The area surrounding the apartment can be quite steep in places particularly down to the cable car (2 euros return to the beach). The beach is rocky but has sun beds and a nice bar/restaurant.

We will definitely be visiting again and highly recommend this apartment. An ideal base away from the tourist crowds for exploring the beautiful island of Madeira.

Très bel appartement

  • 4 of 5

C'est un très bel appartement, à la décoration soignée, plutôt calme, on n'entend pas les voisins, sauf le matin quand on dort la fenêtre ouverte on entend le bruit de la rue (un peu comme à la maison en fait)

Une vue magnifique depuis le balcon.

Il manquait simplement: la clé du local poubelle sur le trousseau, un épluche légumes, une essoreuse à salade et un plateau. Et peut être envisager un robinet thermostatique pour que la température de l'eau chaude qui coule aux robinets (cuisine et salle de bain ) ne soit pas brûlante mais qu'elle soit d'une température constante.

Ces quelques petits détails ne nous ont pas empêché de passer d'excellentes vacances sur cette île magnifique.

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 organise 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 marvellous scenic with inspirational views back up the mountains and out over the Atlantic below.
