Madeira holidays

Madeira holidays promise some lovely scenic views, but one of the easiest ways to see them is to ride the cable car. The cable car starts Funchal at the Parque Almirante Reis in the old part of town and runs up to the beautiful little village of Monte in the mountains above the city. The magnificent Madeira countryside, filled with flowers and basking in glorious sunshine, is a popular place with ramblers. Madeira holidays can also offer a variety of interesting excursions. Visit the finely cultivated gardens for a relaxing day out, featuring unusual flora and fauna native to the island.

In Madeira you will find variety of places to visit and many things to involve which will never make you bored. 

Madeira is an outstanding walking destination, with numerous micro climates and a striking volcanic landscape. Most of the walking routes follow the old levadas, or water channels, through the mountains. There are numerous guided walks that we can arrange from our luxury hotels in Madeira, including the walk of the twenty five waterfalls and trek to the three highest peaks on the island.
