Situated in a quiet family friendly neighbourhood, just a stone’s throw from the country’s vibrant capital Funchal, you’ll love the plethora of activities on your doorstep. From surfing and whale watching, to breath-taking hikes and a round or two of golf, you have plenty to keep the whole family amused.

On Madeira’s sunniest coast, amidst banana plantations and wonderful gardens where flowers bloom all year round in the shelter of the verdant mountains, Funchal is a beautiful city, relaxed by day and exciting by night. You’ll love to amble along Funchal’s picturesque seafront promenade enjoying a drink in one of its many beachfront bars. From here take the cable car to Monte, where you can visit the world-renowned Monte Palace Tropical Garden. And to get back to the Old Town from Monte don’t miss sliding down the steep hill on a traditional wicker toboggan! Once in the old town, be sure to visit some of the fabulous restaurants serving mouth-watering skewered meats, alongside exquisite tapas and heavenly desserts such as honey cake and passion fruit pudding. Football fans will also enjoy a visit to a museum in honour of Madeira’s best loved son Cristiano Ronaldo here.

If it’s a golden sandy beach you desire, then head to Machico on the south east coast, where the sand has been imported from Morocco and you can enjoy fantastic swimming and sunbathing opportunities. Situated in Santa Cruz, you’re also in prime position to take advantage of the beautiful surrounding pine landscapes. And with a stunning backdrop of orange houses nestled in green rolling hills, with the largest mountain on the island Pico Ruivo, inviting you to climb its peaks, you’ll love its scenic beauty. Santa Cruz is also home to many wonderful 16th century monuments as well as some delicious fine dining restaurants.

There are a wide range of activities on offer on the Island, but one of the most breath-taking has to be a glorious hike along some of the 2,092 kilometres of narrow stone irrigation channels known as levadas, criss-crossing Madeira's lush mountainous countryside into the Laurisilva forest. One of the most scenic is the Levada do Caldeirao Verde, which meanders four miles past leafy glades and plunging ocean views before emerging into a picturesque clearing sprinkled by a 91-meter waterfall. Just spectacular! And for the adrenaline junkies amongst you, try your hand at the many mountain-bike trails that plunge and ascend this beautiful landscape, or throw yourself into some canyoning, which will have you sliding over cascades and abseiling down waterfalls.

For the more serene, a wine tasting tour is a must. Head to Camara de Lobos, a lovely traditional fishing village 14km west for a free Madeira wine tasting experience at local producer Henriques & Henriques. Or perhaps the black lava bathing pools of Porto Moniz, 53km north, will provide the perfect day trip, where the meeting of Atlantic waves and a prehistoric volcanic eruption has formed spiky rings of black lava rock along the waterfront turning it into one of the world's weirdest and most beautiful swimming baths.

However, you like to spend your holiday, Madeira’s year-round climate and stunning natural scenery, from majestic mountains, rugged cliffs, lush forests and delightful flower gardens, will provide you with everything you need to enjoy a wonderful holiday experience.

About the City

About Funchal

Funchal is the largest city on the island of Madeira and is encapsulated by Pico Ruivo and its neighbouring mountains, which look as if they have been seamlessly carved into the skyline by a Lusitanian God.

There is no better spot to start your holiday than in the Old Town, which illustrates its personality though street art, architecture and busy local businesses. There are many fine eateries, botanical gardens, a cathedral and impressive museums. Perhaps hop on the Madeira Cable Car as one of your first activities, as this will give you a great idea of the islands size.

Many flock Funchal in order to enjoy the Atlantic Coastline. This is home to its prominent harbour, where hundreds of boats and yachts, some of which enable visitors to embark on a magical sea voyage, can be found. Funchal really is a destination for lovers of the sea; as there are renowned surfing points, as well as being a great place to spot some whales.

Madeirans are also notorious for their elaborate festivals. If you’re travelling during the New Year, you will be treated to one of the world’s biggest Firework Festivals…a dazzling sight! During late February & early Mrach, you are able to witness Carnival and the streets of Funchal are lit with parades and festivities. If that’s not enough for you; the Atlantic Festival International Fireworks Competition, Wine Festival and Christmas are all noteworthy dates for anyone visiting Funchal.

There are some incredible villas on the island and we believe that we have done a great job finding them for you. Have a browse and let us know what you think.

The boat leaves twice a day for a trip out to sea looking to spot dolphins and whales. In the summer the boat will often drop anchor so you can jump in to the sea to cool off.

Whale Museum, Canical - The whale museum or Museu da Baleia is around 20 minutes-drive past the airport in a sleepy little fishing village. With audio sets (for adults and kids), it’s a great little place for a visit.

Cable Car ride, Funchal – This 20-minute cable car ride is a fantastic way to see the beautiful Island of Madeira from above and children will love spotting things as you travel up the mountain. The Monte Gardens at the top are also a great way to cool off in the Summer as they are so shaded, they also boast some wonderful ornamental gardens.

Outdoor pools - Madeira’s outdoor pools are spectacular. The most famous, at Porto Moniz, are a lovely collection of natural swimming pools formed by volcanic lava. There is also a children’s pool here.

The Madeira Theme Park, Santana – This magnificent space is dedicated to the history, science and tradition of the Madeira Islands. A replica of the Monte train, traditional oxcarts and nets, a traditional Santana house, a windmill, a maze and even a lake are some of the Park’s fantastic attractions.

São Vicente Caves - The caves at São Vicente were formed when the lava from the volcanic eruptions thousands of years ago forced the hot liquid through the rock. Now it is possible to walk through some of these passageways which give a fascinating insight in to the geology of the area. There is a great museum and 3D cinema as part of the experience.

The Madeira Skywalk, Cabo Girão - Stand on the glass over 560 metres above the sea for draw-dropping views down the cliffs.
