The Madeira region
Madeira Island is a seven million years old volcanic island. Where several breathtaking views will delight you and where you feel the exuberant nature. Within half an hour by car, you may be at huge and steeper peaks really or swimming at a splendid warm and calm sea. It is an unique Laurissilva Forest (Unesco World Heritage Forest) and also a nature flower sanctuary. There are several attractive events throughout the year as the Flower Festival and the New Year Fireworks, in a marvellous scenario from mountains to the bay of Funchal. Place to enjoy a diversity sports from traditional (a must is walking on “Levadas”) to radical. And there are other exotic islands to discover, as Porto Santo, with a 9km golden sand beach.
What else? Just a couple of words to underline that Madeira Islands were elected, in 2013, the Best European Island Destination by the World Travel Awards (the tourism Oscars!).
You will easily find out what else in a destination at not more than 3,5 hours direct flights from the most important European cities and you will, with no doubt, become our Embassador.
Please spend a couple of minutes to watch some quick videos about Madeira that we choose for you at:
Funchal is the capital of Madeira. It is a clean and safe city as it is hard to find elsewhere.
It is a cosmopolitan town where the tourists are welcome with a pleasure smile in our face. When the hotels are crowded and the port is full of ships, it becomes an exotic melting pot of cultures.
It is not a proposition of hardware. It is a fun, colourful and vibrant software city.
Furthermore, it seems like it is Spring all year round. Over the course of a year, the temperature typically varies from 18°C (64ºF) to 26°C (79ºF) and is rarely below 15°C (59ºF) or above 28°C (82ºF). What a mild climate!
You should experience and enjoy Funchal's warm lifestyle and you will desire to come back.
The Old Town Flat is located just in the middle of the Old Town of Funchal, 15 minutes by car from the Madeira airport.
The exact address of the Old Town Flat is: Rua Jaime Moniz, nº 3, Bloco A, 2º D, 9060-343 Funchal.
Zona Velha is the oldest quarter of the city and now the most popular tourist destination for locals and tourists. It is, with no doubt, the trendiest, coolest, hippest, place in town. It is the main hotspot in Funchal.
If locals are having good times at Old Town, then tourists must also have good times.
With cobblestone streets lined by colonial buildings (some dating back to the 15th century), it is full of life, culture and spirit, with a variety of shops, bars and restaurants (for foodies, some of the best restaurants in town).
The highlights include Mercado dos Lavradores, Forte de São Tiago, a trip on the cable car to Monte and Madeira Story Centre, among others.
A charming apartment needs to be placed in the most charming district of Funchal.
