Further details outdoors

The private terrace, is the main feature of the property. It is impossible to describe the breathtaking views, the space and the ambience. It affords panoramic views of the Atlantic with plenty of space to walk around, sun bathe, relax on the sun lounges and generally chill out and watch the ships go by. The terrace is totally private and is for the exclusive use of our guests.

The west facing, enclosed balcony, accessible from the double bedroom and west facing lounge patio door, captures the evening sun. It is a lovely place, in the early evening, as the sun goes down.

The southern aspect of the lounge and kitchen open onto a very large conservatory, with 4 sets of patio doors and superb sea views, which in turn open onto the large, private, south facing terrace. On cooler days the spacious conservatory offers a pleasant outdoor area to relax.

There is also a luggage room to store cases and outdoor walking boots.

Unlike th remote west of the island, car hire is not necessary in Garajau as there is an excellent local bus service, which runs near the apartment every half hour.

The Madeira Islands region

Madeira (Wood) is a beautiful verdant island. It is Portugal's "Jewel in the Atlantic". The island is a haven for anyone who enjoys walking, whether your taste runs to gentle strolls or hard core hiking. Madeira’s system of irrigation channels, known as levadas, carry water down from the mountains on gentle gradients. These levadas provide a ready-made system of trails. There are 1300 miles of them, crisscrossing the island, and they have level footpaths running along their entire length. Walkers of all ages and abilities can take in some of the finest countryside, surrounded by colourful foliage and spectacular views.

Madeira’s greatest attraction has to be the subtropical climate, sometimes known as “the island of eternal spring”. Even in winter the temperature rarely falls below 17C, and rarely exceeds 23C in high summer.Garajau has an excellent bus service to and from Funchal as well as to the next viallage Canico and its costal resort of Canico de Baixo. The beach at Garajau has been recently restored with access by road or cable lift.

The landscape is covered in a green mantle of rich subtropical foliage. The variety and profusion of flowers makes the island a permanent flower show. Birds of Paradise, with their bright orange beak-like flowers, blossom in open fields. Fragrant hydrangeas line walking paths (levadas) that skirt the edge of mountain terraces.

The landscape and vegetation, coupled with the ever friendly Madeirans and the appetizing food, combine to ensure that Madeira is a place of immense appeal which draws one back again and again.


Located on the sunny, dry, southern coast of Madeira, Garajau is situated, midway between the airport, and the capital, Funchal. Taxi journey time to both is just 12 minutes. Garajau has long been known to be one of Madeira’s high class residential areas and is named after the black-headed sea birds, terns, which nest in the cliffs.

Just below the town is a 200m high headland with a fine "miradouro" - a statue of Christ with outstretched arms, similar to the larger statues in Rio de Janeiro or Lisbon. This is a wonderful spot to watch the sun go down and it has great views west to the Bay of Funchal. The coastline here at Garajau is also a conservation area, and was one of Europe’s first underwater nature reserves, providing sanctuary for whales, dolphins and seals. The sea shore has now been updated and opened up with a new cable lift to take visitors down onto the beach and a beachfront restaurant.

Garajau is also ideal as a location to start the many levada walks in Madeira.

Both Golf courses are within easy reach and the coastal area of Caniço de Baixo boasts three world renowned diving schools.

Garajau’s high street combines the Hotel Dom Pedro Garajau on one side of the road and a multitude of shops, bakeries, coffee shop, ice cream parlous and a few patisseries, and a medium sized well stocked mini-markets with ATM outside, a bank [ Barclays] and several restaurants, bars and apartments on the other. Our apartment is on the next street round the corner from all these amenities.
