The island of Madeira sits in the Atlantic and thanks to its hot summers and mild winters offers a wonderful place for a holiday at anytime of the year. Madeira holidays offer something different to mass market destinations and will allow you to experience this naturally beautiful island in all its glory with extinct volcanoes, dramatic craggy coves and lovely scenery.
Situated around 400kms north of the Canaries, 600kms from the coast of Morocco and around 900kms from The Algarve, the island is one of two autonomous regions of Portugal (The Azores are the other) and has many Portuguese influences. Its most famous export is the footballer Cristiano Ronaldo who has a partnership with a hotel on the island which is football themed.
Funchal is the capital of the island and is where most tourists stay during their holidays in Madeira. It is made up of churches, colonial styled buildings and narrow streets in the old town that have shops, bars and many family run restaurants. The busy marina has a lovely atmosphere and is a great spot for some lunch at one of the many seafood restaurants or a coffee in a local cafe whilst watching the world go by. The nightlife is very much low key on Madeira and usually spent in one of the bars or restaurants enjoying good food and conversation.
