Holiday homes in Madeira

Holiday accommodations on the coast

You would like to spend your holiday in Madeira and are looking for an apartment or holiday home? Then you will find what you are looking for especially in the touristically well developed places on the coast. The offer in the island capital Funchal is particularly large, where you can choose between fantastically situated holiday apartments with a view of the Atlantic Ocean, cosy apartments in the picturesque alleys and generously proportioned villas in the hills above the centre. Alternatively, descend to places like Santa Cruz, Gaula, Canico, Ribeira Brava and Caleta on the bustling south coast or to Porto Moniz, Ponta Delgada or Santana in the quieter north.

Peace and relaxation in a holiday home in the inland

Would you like to set up your accommodation in the middle of greenery and escape the hustle and bustle of the coast? This is also no problem in Madeira, as already a few kilometres inland, you will come across dreamlike holiday homes that cling to the mountain slopes covered with dense greenery. Most of the accommodations, built in the classic rustic style of the region, also have their own pool and sun terrace from where you can enjoy a view of the sea. Such pearls of tranquillity, which are also ideal starting points for walks, can be found near the Parque Natural do Ribeiro Frio as well as in places such as São Vicente and at the foot of the Pico Ruivo peak.

Travelers and Activities

Nightlife on the Island of Eternal Spring

Even though the island is primarily known for its nature, Madeira is still a paradise for night owls. Turn night into day and explore the nightlife of Funchal, Porto Santo and Câmera de Lobos. The spectrum ranges from Madeiran folklore evenings to the open-air fado events typical of Portugal to classical clubs such as the "Copacabana Club", the "Kool & Chameleon" or the open-air club "O Molhe", which is housed in the remains of an old fortress. An absolute insider tip is the pub "Zarco", which is considered by insiders to be the most legendary address on the island.

Madeira for nature lovers

Those who set foot on the island for the first time will be surprised which Garden of Eden is located far away from the mainland in the middle of the Atlantic Ocean. The best way to discover the beauty of the flora is on an extensive hike from a holiday home in the countryside. For those who are adventurous and free of vertigo, guided Levada hikes are just the thing! In the course of these, wooded sections, steep climbs, dark lava tunnels and balance shares alternate on narrow rock overhangs. You will be rewarded with breathtaking views from peaks such as the 1592 meter high Achada do Teixeira or the 1862 meter high Pico Ruivo.

Things to know

Best travel time

Its location on the 32nd parallel and its relative proximity to the African mainland give Madeira a very special climate that makes the island a popular destination all year round. While nature lovers are attracted to the island especially during the spring bloom season, low rainfall and the almost cloudless sky between November and February attract mainly hikers and mountain bikers to Madeira. Those who plan a bathing holiday on the island of eternal spring should, however, book their holiday flat for the summer months July to September, when the Atlantic reaches a pleasant bathing temperature of up to 22 degrees Celsius.

Regular events

Traditionally, Madeira already awakes from its short hibernation with the street carnival in February or March. We continue with the flower festival in June, which is crowned by the famous flower parade in Funchal. Further highlights are the Atlantic Festival and the Oldtimer Rally in June as well as the Wine Festival in August. Motorsport fans can look forward to the three-day wine rally, which will also take place in August and will take place on Europe's most dangerous rally track. The calendar of events is rounded off by the Columbus Festival in September and the New Year's Eve celebrations at Funchal harbour.

Madeira means translated as "wood", whereby the name is to be led back on the still today strong woodland of the island.

A ride with the aerial cableway

If you want to experience the beauty of the island from a bird's eye view, you can take the aerial cableway which takes you from the valley station in Vale de João Gomes over a 1,600 metre stretch up to the mountain station in Monte. Enjoy the view or optionally use your arrival to continue your journey from the mountain station down to the old town of Funchal.

Visiting the Whale Museum

For a long time, whales were hunted in Madeira. Immerse yourself in this exciting chapter of the island's history and learn more about the techniques and methods of whaling. Among the highlights of the exhibition are whaling gear and ancient carvings from whalebones, as well as life-size whale models, which provide awesome looks, especially for young visitors.

Excellent island cuisine

One of the specialities of the island cuisine is the ox skewered on a fresh bay branch, which is cooked on an open flame for hours. In addition, the scabbardfish is a real delicacy that you can only get on your plate in Japan and Madeira, especially as it is a delicious deep-sea fish that can only be found in these two places. The island speciality is best enjoyed in one of the small restaurants where the locals are also guests. There the scabbardfish is usually served with sweet bananas.

Whalewatching in Madeira

Whales can be seen on the island not only in museums but also in the wild. Climb aboard one of the excursion boats that leave Funchal harbour, for example, and head out into the Atlantic Ocean. With the binoculars in place, you have to look out until the first fluke pierces the waves.

Explore the island by mountain bike

The wild and romantic landscape makes Madeira an Eldorado for mountain bikers. The varied topography, which ranges from gentle waves on the coast to climbs with over 30 percent gradients, also ensures challenging routes for all performance classes.
