The Madeira Islands region
Madeira is known as 'the floating garden of the Atlantic;' with it's mild, warm climate. The north of the island is a beautiful location for holidays if you enjoy scenery, walking or just relaxing and getting away from busy tourist destinations.
The climate is usually warm in the spring and summer months, and cooler with more rainfall in late autumn, winter and early spring.
Funchal, the city and port has a charming, relaxed atmosphere with a lovely old town with art projects, cafes, restaurants and bars.
Arco de Sao Jorge is a great place if you want to experience peace and quiet and appreciate natural surroundings.
Local activities include a visit to the museum of wine making and vineyards, rose gardens, and spectacular coastal walking.
Madeira has a rich maritime history and was known for the production of sugar cane and Madeira wines. Wine making is still an important part of it's culture and there are plenty of wine lodges with opportunities to try and buy Madeira wine.

"solitude - rejuvenation and glorious views"
I needed a week away from work. This was a perfect choice. I found the house home from home. Clutter free, simple and furnished with the flair of an artist. My priority was a peaceful chemical free week. The garden and house were perfect. Spent my time wandering the organic garden, spying on the butterflies and snoozing on the patio admiring the views. Hardly a car went by and the aroma from the bakery across the road had me pottering across to purchase real home made fresh bread. rejuventing holiday for sure.
