Luxury city breaks in Madeira
Black volcanic stones create mosaic-like patterns on the sparkling white pavements of Funchal, Madeira’s orchid-filled capital. Dine on delicate white monkfish as you cruise the deep blue harbour on an ultra-modern catamaran. Whitewashed townhouses line the romantic streets of Funchal’s cobbled Old Town full of tiny chocolate boutiques and delicatessens selling bolo de caco bread. Soar over lush banana groves as you take a cable car to the hillside town of Monte.
Luxury beach holidays in Madeira
The tiny sub-tropical island of Porto Santo was once home to Christopher Columbus. Relax on yellow sands or savour a glass of fruity Madeira wine atop one of the world’s highest sea cliffs. The rock-face is stained a deep shade of gold by centuries of warm sunlight. Charter a boat to go deep-sea fishing for Atlantic tuna. Natural pools formed among rust coloured rocks are as good as any holiday spa.
Luxury holidays in the Madeira countryside
Traditional thatched palheiro cottages point skyward in the countryside near Santana on Madeira’s emerald-green north coast. Follow jacaranda-clad levadas to the pebbled peak of Pico do Ariero, which soars above the clouds. While enjoying tender beef espetadas on a terrace by the lookout point of Eira do Serrado, the red-tiled roofs of Curral das Freiras glow in the twilight. Golfers will love the island’s rolling coastal courses.
